    Ay, there's the rub!!! This is why I am, and have always been fascinated, and borderline obsessed with the often underestimated, or ignored significance of semantics in regards to linguistic communication.

    I want to believe in people too, but you can't always get what you want, unfortunately.

    Damn SJs!

    Now you have me thinking about the difference between what it means to be logical, and what it means to be reasonable. Where the rules that dictate reason, and thus what's to be considered reasonable, are far more circumstantially based and subjectively driven, than the more universally applied objective rules of logic.
    I think this falls back to whether you're a J or a P, to a certain extent. Like I said previously, I'm content to simply search for the answers. If you need answers (J?) and one can't be supplied by logic alone, you're more likely to allow subjective reasoning to creep in.

    Whole heartedly!!
    Too bad there's no :highfive: smiley. We need one!
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."
