    The idea of loops is a good idea. I don't put much stock in the conjectures of professional psychologists on account of their credentials, because those credentials don't imply insight or wisdom. Some psychologists have great ideas, and some, lousy.

    That's a good point about other stack models.

    I am not sure whether the Ni-Fi, Fi-Ni loops could even happen in the first place.

    Yes, I knew that person quite well. He was a member here for years and the 'loop' nonsense was merely a bunch of bullshit he made up.
    Take out the trash.

    Fandoms are fun, and even if they weren't, they're very in at the moment.
