    By what means can you judge discovering the theory of relativity inherently superior to getting along well with people? Isn't this dependent on your own personal priorities in terms of what's important in life?

    By your reasoning, Buddhist monks in secluded monasteries are wasting their lives on reaching better internal contentment through self-understanding if they don't share that information with others in a way that can be applied to advancing some external cause. But advancing external causes is not a priority in their value system--only finding inner peace is. Why is this an inferior value system?

    Your sarcastic response here is founded on another Te assumption that it's somehow objectively obvious that your idea of what constitutes a well-lived life is more correct than others.
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?

    you like BEER outdoors... and cheerleader babes in short skirts

    on the other hand, I prefer to sit at home and plan world domination and the superiority of INTJs on my computer

    Hey man, I'm not saying I have any problem with Buddhist monks, nor do I think that inner peace is an unworthy goal -- for God's sake man, I do yoga three times a week!

    But I WOULDN'T say that those Buddhist monks are SMARTER or MORE INTELLIGENT than EINSTEIN!
