    Nah. You're not supposed to start a sentence with a conjunction, by the way.

    Well, if you are looking for accuracy in thought 'greatly' would be better, but if you're looking for quality self-expression, than severely should work better for you.

    The first is the NTish approach the second is NFish.

    Well, see this is where you and I have a problem. I know my thoughts, and you presume to know my thoughts better than myself.

    It's actually stylistically okay, as is ending sentences with prepositions. It would be nice if the conjunction was followed by interesting content, though.

    Reading comprehension - get into it.

    We can baby you through this concept, or you can drop the act. Preferably the latter.

    *blinks* If something has a direct impact on how you can live your life doesn't that by itself deserve some respect irrespective of how it obtained that status? Or do you live so much by your Ti that the external world means nothing to you?

    Come to think of it... have you ever wonder about why we have politics? All well-structured human societies have some forms of it. If you think more deeply about it, perhaps you can learn to appreciate the fine art of power games and manipulation from the study of politics... and base on that come to a better understanding of human nature.

    Only Ns can go from politics to personal attacks to grammar/syntax lessons in two pages.

    A lot of people like to hate politics, because it conjures images of greedy businessmen and smarmy senators. Really, it's nothing more than power and dominance, and so there will inevitably be politics whenever two or more people interact. We play politics with just about everyone we meet. Some people enjoy power and dominance more than others.

    What's the difference between syntax and grammar, anyway? Someone explained it to me a few years ago, but I've forgotten.

    I have a vague sense that syntax is a subset of grammar and has to do with where words are placed within sentences. But this sounds like a job for Rajah.

    I'm rather conflicted over politics, but cannot resolve it, and so avoid it. The role of the media in the political process makes it a complete facade. People have become so opinionated, but mostly parrot the sound bytes they've heard from the media. I don't generally trust anyone who is successful in achieving power because it's rather clear that the political games and economics of it requires a certain level of dishonesty. On the other hand, I have to admit that dismissing it for such reasons is a cop out. I suppose my position is one of copping out because I haven't perceived a better option, at least one that I have the energy for.

    edit: Why should politics not be considered a sorry business? Well, politics seems to be the practical way to make social policies. Its tasks 'need' to be accomplished, and so there is sense in appreciating that someone is willing to do it, whether for the ideals, the practicality, or the glory. There is generally some natural motivation for involved individuals to make decisions that will work for the society as a whole. It would be in their own best interest for succeeding at their task.
