[NF] What would it be like if NF's were the majority?

I was wondering recently what it might be like if instead of being 10% of the populous, what the world might be like if NF's were 40% of the populous, instead of SJ's.

Would it be any better of a world? Would there be less violence since we'd all be focused on making it an idealistic world or would it be total chaos and have a complete lack of infrastructure since we'd be too busy focusing on said idealism? Or would there be no infrastructure simply because we'd all be too busy daydreaming about what the world would be like if SJ's were the majority?

What are your thoughts?

This would be my guess. SJs exist in such abundance for a reason. Survival of the fittest. :)

Nah, NFs are great. But seriously I can't see myself or anyone much like me taking on the business of running the world. I'd much rather write about it. . .

These threads just seem like a blatant invitation for all the T to come in and tell all us NF what they don't like about us in the most degrading and nonsense terms possible.

It would be one big circle jerk and lots of cuddling afterward.

Or this could just be a cool thread that has the potential to be ruined by a few pricks.

Cuddling is the best. I'm a total girl for saying it, but I could forgo most other affection in a relationship if I just cuddled with someone a whole bunch. Also, kittens.

And I am new enough to have faith that they won't do it every time.

Only time will tell now!

Well, even our own kind is saying we'd end up in some ridiculous circle jerk situation. ;) I say the thread doesn't have too far to drop at this point. :D

I think we are just as capable of running a majority as SJs are, it would just be a bit..different, in a good way of course.

Hehe, yeah. I mean, what could they even say in the first place, though? "Oh, my you have emotions. How silly of you."

Like water off a duck's back.

They could say that your inferior abilities in analyzing problems cia logical means would result in you failing to produce a cohesive or productive society, in a myriad of specific ways that could be explained in detail. They could also say that the world as we know it would not have advanced beyoned mysticism as much as the real one has.

I don't really believe those things are true, but I am telling you that there is plenty of material with which to insult you.

That being said, I'd like to raise a complaint because you people are apparently stealing cuddling from me, as if I, as a non-NF, do not appreciate cuddling. :nono:

Oh god, it would be terrible. Too much emotions and too little objective decision making. LOL. Just go and check one of those only NF discussion groups. Drama, drama...

Even in group theories it states that a good team is made of different kinds of people.

I think the world would be better if NJs ran things.

NF is tough because that takes INFJs and ENFPs, two very different creatures, and bunches them into one archetype.

That being said, even if NFs were the majority SJs would still run things. That's just what they do.

Hey, I'm down with that!

But ya, this wasn't meant as a "hey come insult us" thread. I was imagining what it'd be like and wanted feedback. I, like sleep, am also new here ;)

It's interesting to me to think, if we were able to accomplish an infrastructure, to see what things might be different. Can anyone say Department of Homeland Emotional Security?

Why does everyone focus on our emotions? and doesn't EVERYONE have emotions to an extent? don't we just USE ours for something?
we have other qualities that could be useful to society.
