  1. @egoless Reminds me of a scene from a movie "My Cousin Vinny". Vinny: My clients were caught completely by surprise. They thought they were getting arrested for shoplifting a can of tuna. Judge Haller: What are you telling me? That they plead not guilty? Vinny: No. I'm just trying to explain. Judge Haller: I don't want to hear explanations. The state of Alabama has a procedure. And that procedure is to have an arraignment. Are we clear on this? Vinny: Yes, but there seems to be a great deal of confusion here. You see, my clients... Judge Haller: Uh, Mr. Gambini? [Motions for him to approach the bench] Judge Haller: All I ask from you is a very simple answer to a very simple question. There are only two ways to answer it: guilty or not guilty. Vinny: But your honor, my clients didn't do anything. Judge Haller: Once again, the communication process broken down. It appears to me that you want to skip the arraignment process, go directly to trial, skip that, and get a dismissal. Well, I'm not about to revamp the entire judicial process just because you find yourself in the unique position of defending clients who say they didn't do it. ... Judge Haller: The next words out of your mouth better be "guilty" or "not guilty." I don't want to hear commentary, argument, or opinion. If I hear anything other than "guilty" or "not guilty", you'll be in contempt. I don't even want to hear you clear your throat. Now, how do your clients plead? Vinny: I think I get the point. Judge Haller: No, I don't think you do. You're now in contempt of court. Judge Haller:Would you like to go for two counts. Vinny: Not guilty. Judge Haller: Thank you. "Wondering in all directions". Exactly, has Leo broken into your place to install OneNote yet . Not that I'm necessarily any better.
  2. @egoless Are you sure?
  3. @egoless As you said and I generally agree "they lack focus" drawing human nervous & muscular systems must require immense focus (Resolution), what could possibly require more focus than drawing a human nervous system at the time? Which INTP's generally lack. So make up for the lower resolution, with "increased screen size", the ultimate consumer of information. As Jung said "Ideas have people". I think he also mentioned somewhere that a lot of his ideas came from reading various religious texts. There is a phenomena called Cryptoamnesia (By Jung) where people forget where they learned something and think it was their own original idea. Einstein being a theoretical science integrated various ideas into a general theory of relativity, I guess you could call that creativity in an abstract sense. Machiavelli: INTJ (Scientist/Mastermind), if he was, wouldn't he have chosen another career than politics? Haven't read "The Prince" but isn't one of the themes it is better to be feared than loved if one must choose, or something? How can one put a formula to that?
  4. @egoless Maybe, though I go with ENTP as "Inventor/Visionary", INTP would be more Machiavellian to me. Tend to think of Da Vinci's powers of observation, anatomy drawings, "flying machines" etc. Where as INTP "Thinker/Architect" would be more abstract, than visual. Beside if he's thinking about drawing, he's not drawing. Observation over Abstraction.
  5. @egoless ENTP: Ext Intuition (Pattern Matching) Introverted Thinking (Unconscious Thinking) Ext Feeling (What is the Group doing) Introverted Sensing (What old information do I have) INTP: Introverted Thinking Extroverted Intuition Int Sensing Ext Feeling I think that the ENTP is going to be more caught up in observing. Where as the INTP is attempting to integrate existing information in their own minds. Why is Meditation(Integration, perhaps) more prevalent with INTPs, and Self Knowledge(Empirical) with ENTJs? So an ENTP is perhaps more of a tinkerer like Da Vinci, where as an INTP is more stuck in their heads (in general). You can make toys or you can play with toys which is more fun?
  6. @egoless Maybe not so much as work on their proactive skills, but rather narrow their focus. Thinking of a military general from history "Hannibal"(INTP perhaps) he successfully managed to encircle and destroy an entire roman army, much bigger then his at Cannae. Though he ultimately lost the war by not sacking Rome(basically slaying the population). Where as someone like Julius Caesar (ENTJ) knew what he wanted and went for it, using whatever means at his disposal, but doing what he said he was going to do, very strong willpower. ENTP: Extroverted Intuition, too caught up looking at different things to really form a strategy, more of an artist or inventor.
  7. INTP(As potential best): although ENTJ imho have the most follow through of any personal strategy and are proactive(ENTJ) rather than reactive(INTP). So I would say ENTJ's have the best internalised strategic operations, where as the INTP externalises to their immediate environment. INTJ: Int Intuition as their primary function deals with known causal formulaic methods, when perhaps the ability to react to the unknown maybe required. So in situations with a limited range of parameters they are probably the most adept. ISTP: "Mechanics" are probably the most adaptive, to a general situation on the fly. ESTJ: Are probably the best at maintaining their own personal Integrity, as situations develop.
  8. Something to do with the creation or manipulation of a linear narrative perhaps. History. "Something" - George Harrison (Beatles) Something in the way she moves Attracts me like no other lover Something in the way she woos me I don't want to leave her now You know I believe and how Somewhere in her smile she knows That I don't need no other lover Something in her style that shows me Don't want to leave her now You know I believe and how You're asking me will my love grow I don't know, I don't know You stick around now it may show I don't know, I don't know Something in the way she knows And all I have to do is think of her Something in the things she shows me Don't want to leave her now You know I believe and how
  9. Why & How am I conscious of being entity "X" and not some other entity/individual? If "the" everything came from the "Big Bang". Could electrical wires in a vehicle be said to be it's "brain". What makes the "human brain unique". Apparently a sea hydra loses it's brain(Navigation) once it attaches itself to a rock (J. Peterson). A lot of nerves are located in the gut, as well as the skull.
  10. @vibrate What do you use to keep your hair clean, if not shampoo?
  11. "Take her into the fetus frightening room." "That's the machine that goes PING, it means your baby is still alive!" There are no more barriers to cross. All I have in common with the uncontrollable and the insane, the vicious and the evil, all the mayhem I have caused and my utter indifference toward it, I have now surpassed. I still, though, hold on to one single bleak truth: no one is safe, nothing is redeemed. Yet I am blameless. Each model of human behavior must be assumed to have some validity. Is evil something you are? Or is it something you do? My pain is constant and sharp and I do not hope for a better world for anyone. In fact, I want my pain to be inflicted on others. I want no one to escape. But even after admitting this—and I have countless times, in just about every act I’ve committed—and coming face-to-face with these truths, there is no catharsis. I gain no deeper knowledge about myself, no new understanding can be extracted from my telling. There has been no reason for me to tell you any of this. This confession has meant nothing….” ― Bret Easton Ellis, American Psycho
  12. The battle for the mind of North America will be fought in the video arena — the videodrome. The television screen is the retina of the mind's eye. Therefore the television screen is part of the physical structure of the brain. Therefore whatever appears on the television screen emerges as raw experience for those who watch it. Therefore television is reality, and reality is less than television. -------------------- Determinist/Materialist(?) - From "A Clockwork Orange resucked": I do not think so because, by definition, a human being is endowed with free will. He can use this to choose between good and evil. If he can only perform good or only perform evil, then he is a clockwork orange – meaning that he has the appearance of an organism lovely with colour and juice but is in fact only a clockwork toy to be wound up by God or the Devil or (since this is increasingly replacing both) the Almighty State. It is as inhuman to be totally good as it is to be totally evil. The important thing is moral choice. Evil has to exist along with good, in order that moral choice may operate. Life is sustained by the grinding opposition of moral entities. This is what the television news is about. Unfortunately there is so much original sin in us all that we find evil rather attractive. To devastate is easier and more spectacular than to create. We like to have the pants scared off us by visions of cosmic destruction. To sit down in a dull room and compose the Missa solemnis or The Anatomy of Melancholy does not make headlines or news flashes. Unfortunately my little squib of a book was found attractive to many because it was as odorous as a crateful of bad eggs with the miasma of original sin ---------------------------------------- Not sure how a person can reconcile Materialism(or physicalism) with Freewill, even though people act as though they have freewill in general. So if freewill(as in the concept of actual choice) is to be accepted as true, then it would be theism(as in a personal God) or some kind of psychological fluke, perhaps being evolutionary advantageous in the conveyance of communicable "moral concepts"(or agreements), though in the latter case not genuine freewill. Determinism & Spirtuality(?) In contrast to actually know Determinism(not just speculate in terms of causality), one would have to be non-human and Freewill (would be in the concept of creation). It's a Kind a Magic - Queen Changes - David Bowie. "Turn to face the strange". Near Death or Actual Death Experiences: Would be interesting to know what actual effects are caused to an individual. Though there are many many recurrent themes in pop-culture and Mythology referencing changes in personalities and eerie intuitive abilities or noticed affects, coincidences.
