    Opportunism

    And a fine label it is, to get the point across in a categorized manner. I don't think they won't take the opportunity. It's less so about receiving than it is about taking or stealing, let alone giving. It must be a satisfaction thing. Ask yourself: why would anyone want to kill Superman...

    Am I egotistical? (I really, really apologize for the lengthy rant)

    No, you should be good. As a female, it sounds like Fe or Si. Small talk is one thing, but I think it can take hours of discussion before any understanding even begins to be approached and even then, we'll probably never get to the bottom of it, which people could have an inherent tendency to...

    Opportunism

    That's just Gawain & the Green Knight from the 14th century. Apparently, if you don't have a bad memory, things stick to your conscious until the grave, you can't escape. From my experience, most people utilize "opportunism". It's fast. Lead Ti doesn't automatically mean deep thought, aux or...

    Opportunism

    What's the general consensus on "opportunistic behavior" in society? It could be related to a capitalistic mindset. From wiki: "Opportunism is the conscious policy and practice of taking advantage of circumstances – with little regard for principles or with what the consequences are for others...

    Best Hulk

    I think that’s called character development over a contract of several films, plus any backstory you may have. I didn’t know everything was supposed to be instant and already immediately there. You aren’t putting pieces of the puzzle together at all. Iron Man = ENTP Thor = ENTP Hulk = INTP...

    Best Hulk

    Well, that’s just nonsense and clearly wrong - a quite bizarre interpretation of it. Hulk isn’t learning disabled, more so just blind with rage. There isn’t much missing from the movies, as film is mostly an audio-visual medium (mostly for sensors or Se people, Ni-Se folks like INFJ or INTJ, can...

    Why I like INTP as an INTJ

    You don't come off as INTJ that much to me. Dominant Ne or Ni aren't similar, it's the notion that they're both lead intuitives that's worth the extra gander. Once you get past that layer you can get to know that person more. It isn't as simple as one being an introvert and the other extrovert...

    Why I like INTP as an INTJ

    Are you sure you're INTJ? Could be ENTP, which is NeTi. INTJ is NiTe. They're both lead intuitives and aux thinkers, although inversed, so Ne or Ni, which are way different, yet similar. There's only as much "uncertainty" (not ignorance) up until a certain point.

    Plato's Cave

    I don't get what you mean. It's generally well documented in history that Kant's views more so supported Newton's ideas, whatever that may imply. Chirality is common in biochemistry, as humans can only digest left handed molecules. It's known as R or S for rectus or sinister. I'm not sure your...

    Plato's Cave

    No, you're only saying that for a specific, certain reason based off something I said earlier. Kant acknowledged Newton and Leibniz's rivalry and set out to prove Newton right. Newton said space was absolute hence classical physics. Leibniz just said space consisted solely of "spatial...

    Religion and Irony

    Concrete examples? Define religion. Is it fundamentalist Christians? Their views overall tend to be literal interpretations of the Holy Word. The King James version of the Bible tends to rhyme more lines.

    Turn off auto quote?

    For some reason this forum's software keeps changing the way I quote posts. It adds its own quote tags to them automatically, resulting in a kind of "double quote" that can't be removed, because it just re-adds it. I don't like it. The previous one was better. Is there an option for this?

    Not wanting to win/be successful

    The Trickster theme was always lame, for whichever example of someone you use as its model in your group of people you know. It's similar to the "Coyote" or Native American/Mexican thing. They both have similar traditions and tales or beliefs and interpretations. It isn't so much a "white man"...

    Mostly, I didn't really mean brown people. We call any brown person colored. Asians might be different as far as getting along with the white man, in general, although when it comes to that it's slightly less biased when taking overall IQ or how many degrees you have into consideration. So it...

    I am a native, and a hippie due to my immersion in the actual culture. I don't know who Niclmaki is, never heard of him. He's more a poser than a hippie, I am almost sorry to say.

    Source Monitoring

    “The Vision of Visions heals the Blindness of Sight.” To make things clear, this thread isn’t about celibacy. It’s about “source monitoring”. In other words, it’s about culturally sanctioned beliefs forcing “celibacy” upon others by the telling of “little white lies” and myth. “People just look...

    Source Monitoring

    They say if you're training to be a curandero you can't have sex because the spirits you'd contact hate the smell of period blood+sperm/semen and just humans in general, so as part of la dieta they have to abstain in order to get to know the plants more. Does anyone know from, or have...

    There's no reason to automatically assume any thing means it's a defense mechanism or predator/insect repellent.

    Plato's Cave

    Kant is basically a Newton vs Leibniz proposition, so advocating for him makes one look smarter or more logical for defending Newton. But, relativity "replaced" or updated our understanding of Newtonian space and time. It's because Newton said there was absolute space while Leibniz disagreed...

    The Random Thoughts Thread

    I wouldn't give in to paranoia much and would watch out for gaslighting techniques, so to speak. Once people know about anything you're interested in, they'll beat it into a dead horse. So this has all been talked about before already. History repeats itself. Time may not be linear, so people...

    It's more or less the same. That's just expectations then and people being oblivious to the now core moment. Tell people what they want to hear, and people want what they can't have. You could be being influenced by all sorts of unconscious stimuli, and not just that, but make decisions based...

    No, nothing really reliable that you can say for certain. I may have seen a few, not many, studies published or referenced in the past but it sort of just averages out.

    I don't like it that much but despite that I always get sucked back into it. Trying to quit is only hard for the first 1 or 2 days, then after that the habit starts to dissipate and you find you don't need it. It is nice to smoke casually, for the way it relaxes your body and calms the mind. It...

    INTJ

    I wouldn't or don't. It would mostly be in my head with hypothetical theorizing, correlating with Ni. Te would be extraverted expression and be awkward, because Fi is inferior more without developed use, and Se inferior could be awkward too. So their best applied use is for construction with not...

    It doesn't so much matter how many class of thinker it refers to or which ones. You can make up your own category or example to apply to something in real life experience. You don't really have to take it literal as an example, as the situation could have no practical use in reality nor ever...

    Plato's Cave

    It's really only for specialists, or abstract metaphysical thinkers and thought experiments. Common sense proofs are merely "here is this", "therefore the external world exists".

    Plato (428-348 BC) was the one who came up with the cave allegory, which says those in a cave with a firelight can only see their shadow and believe that makes up the whole of their reality, wherein they can't comprehend or conceive of the idea of actual reality, and so think that's all there...
