    Considering how many stupid NTs there are, that is sound advice.

    I can be a smart NT, but I prefer not to be an NT...

    Man you always refer to the current administration like that.

    If we're talking IQ, (most)tests used to measure IQ are convergence tests.
    Using the premise that N makes one more inovative, N doesn't really give much of an advantage. Those with N preferences WOULD be more suited towards divergence tests.

    As for the T thing... some people have really stupid thoughts...
    just because you prefer to place an emphasis on logic when making a descision, doesn't mean your logic is sound.

    Here's a funny little exchange to think about-

    "What would be nice? Hotpot? Sukiyaki? Crab is a no-no. I can't take it. Picking the flesh out of the shell drives me nuts. Why can't crabs make their shells edible? How come they didn't do anything about that during the course of evolution, might I ask?"

    "That's exactly why they evolved shells! They don't undergo natural selection in the depths of the sea just for the sake of your stomach!"

    "How can an NT be stupid?" Let me count the ways ...
    "Remember always that you not only have the right to be an individual, you have an obligation to be one."
    Eleanor Roosevelt


    "When people see some things as beautiful,
    other things become ugly.
    When people see some things as good,
    other things become bad."

    ^This, and nothing more.

    It has almost nothing to do with this IQ, EQ, or Mulitple Intelligences nonsense.

    There is one intelligence, it has a single definition at its core, and whatever it is it can be applied to almost any situation.

    Besides, everyone knows emotional intelligence doesn't exist. Emotions just happen from random neurochemical processes, and other people only exist in my imagination.

    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?
