    And our will is determined, anyway, by whatever the factors are, be they predictions included or just all of the other factors that go into determining what we will do.

    Certainly this is plausible, but I prefer the hard data. I know how easily I am misled, so to avoid being led up the garden path by charm and status, I prefer to keep my nose in the data

    I know this is an old thread, but what is there to debunk about Astrology? Everyone already knows that Astrology is pseudoscience.

    Nor everyone knows mbti uses exactly the same means of manipulation as astrology.

    But mbti rewards us with a feeling of control, puts our critical mind to sleep, and wakes our imaginative mind. This is irresistible to those in emotional pain, and will believe anything to stop the pain.
