I really did mean what I said there. Oh, I hope you don't mind me thinking of you as the "SpaceKitty", I just like that avatar very much :)
And how did you end up in this part of the world? Not exactly a very touristy destination :)
I'm very glad you liked it, though, and the tension, I guess is just what a lot of people around here live on. It's not pretty, but you learn a lot by observing it.
Yeah, I agree with you. It also sort of flows into one big song. There's just so much going on, it's almost impossible to fathom it all. I'm planning on getting Los Angeles now. I'm scared to name a favorite track before I really listen to it.
What electronic artists do you like? I've mostly been listening to four tet, the avalanches and DJ shadow. I'm not if they all qualify as electronic considering I'm a bit unclear on what defines electronic.
I'm with you 100% on this. This is a part of the vision that Pod'lair is going to bring to fruition, we will have entire generations of children that have been honing their strengths and overcoming their weaknesses since they were born. We will be able to completely utilize the inspirational relationships between the ways types use their abilities and create unstoppable think tanks. Personally, I can't wait to see the current standards of psychiatry completely reformed, people are being diagnosed with "Disorders" that are nothing more than that person using their cognitive functions in the way they were naturally meant to. We have this idea that there is this "normal" personality that everyone is supposed to conform to, it is completely backward. Honestly, this is something that should be happening now, this mentality that everyone has the exact same personality has been holding us back for ages.
Well I believe the personality is a biologically occurring phenomenon, and that one is born with all of their cognitive function hierarchical "wiring" already in place (So for instance, while an INTP's Fe might be underdeveloped, it is always existent.). I don't think all cognitive functions develop at once of course, they are very much muscles in that an infant is born with all of them, but they must be used before they can develop. With all that said, I would say you should technically be able to discern their personality type as soon as they are old enough to articulate, maybe even earlier than that. But I should note that you would have to have a very high level of mastery to be able to recognize cognitive function use at such a basic level. So it would be optimal to type a child after they have had a chance to maybe go to school and be around other people for about a year at least.
