  1. No thanks, it will be abused by charming psychopaths and suggestible people alike. Ha
  2. @Corpus if your mind doesn't exist, how are you able to write that statement then?
  3. This is true but maybe it's just a way to get along. If you can make people feel good, the possibilities for you are endless.
  4. @Username you can't prove that.
  5. Only when the psych drugs start kicking in.
  6. We don't create our own reality, but our interpretation of it. Yours happened to be negative, hence your negative feelings. So yeah.
  7. Check out his video on free will VS determinism I think it will answer most questions you have.
  8. Knowledge: "States will never be happy until rulers become philosophers or philosophers become rulers." — Plato "You need to learn to think. Because thinking makes you act effectively in the world." — Jordan B Peterson > Socionics "Socionics is a theory of information processing and personality type, distinguished by its information model of the psyche, called Model A, and a model of interpersonal relations. It incorporates Carl Jung's work on Psychological Types with Antoni Kępiński's theory of information metabolism. Socionics is a modification of Jung's personality type theory that uses eight psychic functions. These functions process information at varying levels of competency and interact with the corresponding function in other individuals, giving rise to predictable reactions and impressions—a theory of intertype relations. Socionics was developed in the 1970s and '80s, primarily by the Lithuanian researcher Aušra Augustinavičiūtė, an economist, sociologist, and dean of the Vilnius Pedagogical University's department of family science. A. Augustinavičiūtė has later shortened her last name from "Augustinavichiute" to "Augusta" to make it easier to spell for foreigners. The name "socionics" is derived from the word "society", because A. Augusta believed that each personality type has a distinct purpose in society, which can be described and explained by socionics. Augusta created symbols to represent the functions described by Carl Jung and — together with a circle of fellow researchers/hobbyists — eventually created what is known as the "socionic model of the psyche" — a description of the psyche where each of the 8 information elements has its place in each person's psyche. The central idea of socionics is that information is intuitively divisible into eight categories, called information aspects or information elements, which a person's psyche processes using eight psychological functions. Each sociotype has a different correspondence between functions and information elements, which results in different ways of perceiving, processing, and producing information. This in turn results in distinct thinking patterns, values, and responses to arguments, all of which are encompassed within socionic type. Socionics' theory of intertype relations is based on the interaction of these functions between types." ( Semantics and Vocabulary of Information Elements Conflicting ways of assigning meaning -- > Psychoanalysis "Psychoanalysis, method of treating mental disorders, shaped by psychoanalytic theory, which emphasizes unconscious mental processes and is sometimes described as “depth psychology.” The psychoanalytic movement originated in the clinical observations and formulations of Austrian psychiatrist Sigmund Freud, who coined the term psychoanalysis. During the 1890s, Freud worked with Austrian physician and physiologist Josef Breuer in studies of neurotic patients under hypnosis. Freud and Breuer observed that, when the sources of patients’ ideas and impulses were brought into consciousness during the hypnotic state, the patients showed improvement."

  9. In conspiracy theories anyone can say anything. We need facts to keep a conversation informed.
  10. Looking to find new people. I should use reddit Used to talk to people a lot I mean, even just outdoors. Not even on the internet Before the virus of course. I miss that. Hoping for this time to be over. But even that creates uncertainty - what will happen to me? Would my dog get to live long? But yeah... I have no idea about the future, yet none of us do. Trying not to be cynical. I used to talk to people. I mean, I want to meet someone who'd I really mesh well with. Certain ones I used to meet were actually really smart - like aspiring writers and music nerds asking for my spotify account. They weren't the typical chat partner but there sure used to be some of them. Hoping to find this type of people again.
  11. He leads with Ti. Chomsky is a concrete guy. He doesn't like continental philosophy, as he said on the video you posted. Ni is all about the abstract. The meaning behind phenomena--what makes an apple fall from a tree? Hmm, must be gravity. What could be done with this and that, assuming that this and that are finite forms, and could always be improved upon/at least hiding unknown things behind it? Chomsky doesn't talk about these things, I mean he never had any Ni insights about 9/11 or Obama's presidency or even the Trump presidency. He's all about the concrete facts, the structure of things and truth as it correlates to what people do in positions of power (Ti+Ne).
  12. Chomsky's an INTP. The man is no strategist and planner.
  13. What do I wanna do? I wanna learn, research, and thrive. Life is suffering and none of us can escape this. I need to believe in good again. The mystery of love - the source of all balance and joy in the world. About to delete this soon... Rationality and psychoanalytic theory. Human behavior - the definition of a human being, the way we'd classify and identify what a lion or a cheetah is The human condition - the poignancy, meaning, and suffering of life Music is powerful, if you can escape the fatigue of listening to sound
  14. Nothing lasts. Panta-rhei: "everything flows"

  16. Mastery > tribe > belonging (??) What did Harry Potter, Hermione, and Ron have in common? They were all sorted to Gryffindor. What creates a tribe? The topic of self-sufficiency
  17. All of human life was and will always be spent squaring the circle. There's no other way and there never will be.

  21. Self-efficaciousness, mental and physical well-being, resilience ^ Psychopathology Colorful, fascinating, even appealing "The greatest trick the Devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn't exist." No doubt about it. "squaring of the circle" I think in general means order in chaos (circle is everlasting and lacking in sides, hence no capacity for categorizing whatever may be inside) square the circle = to solve, or attempt to solve, an impossible (or seemingly impossible) problem or situation. ( Amazing. So squaring the circle, this particular concept, has a lot to tell us about the nature of life on this planet. "attempting to solve the impossible" = imposing order on a chaotic environment The world is chaotic, because it's composed of opposites (light and dark, love and hate, good and evil, sound and silence) and uncertainty. Humans create order as a means of survival. Otherwise the world will go into utter horrific madness. But we are not in control, and this is the truth of life. So somehow we could say that everyday, we are perpetually attempting to "square the circle". But what's inside the circle?
