    Women freak me out

    Well if it makes ypu feel any better lots of women are freaked out by interractions with the opposite sex. I for example went most of high school not talking to anyone XY chromosomed (with a few brief exceptions) because relations between the genders just felt too loaded and weird and awkward...

    If you feel comfortable doing so of course, I get it if you would rather not. It's just that the information would be relevant ?

    You shouldn't hold it against onestep because they are certainly capable of being clear and interesting, people sometimes get sucked into philosophical jargon and I think using it this way can be almost involuntary sometimes when you get really enthusiastic about it. First year philosophy...

    That sounds like a good potential explanation for the results of the experiments Serac is referring to. @Serac thank you I'll browse.

    in asia, school and education has become an arms race/competition

    Basically @Serac I think you're talking about paradigm shifters when you designate people like Newton or Einstein or whatever, which does indeed demand practically superhuman creativity. Funnily enough both of those people have stories of being very mediocre at school/uni. But, I think it's...

    in asia, school and education has become an arms race/competition

    I'm agreed he was mega genius. But he's not the only example of scientific progress. Basically all I'm saying is I think a lot of the time some people collects a ton of data methodically even though it's boring as hell and not creative and this is a necessary block for building knowledge and a...

    The future...

    OP your post is very interesting and jam packed with lots of ideas, but it is pessimistic and by this I mean that it is perhaps not always entirely justified in this pessimism. I agree for example that most education systems are problematic in lots of ways, but I think that for example just the...

    in asia, school and education has become an arms race/competition

    I don't know if such a rigorous education would eliminate the capacity to innovate radically either, though I am not saying it doesn't either for sure. I am interested if you have any thoughts on this. However, on you other point I kind of disagree. I think it is simply that the anthill is...

    I'm a lady, used to think I was INTP, then morphed into INFJ. Don't listen to Adaire, she's definitely INTP though :p

    On the other hand, this will be formative. It will teach people that they get no second chances in life. Just express your thoughts in a clear and orderly fashion on the first go you pampered toddlers.

    Why are you blind to beauty?

    I don't understand, I have not observed that people are particularly blind to beauty. Millions flock to Rome to see the Sistine Chapel or to Paris to see Notre Dame, etc. etc. Am I missing something in your post?

    I might need a jacket

    Denim bomber jacket or "sportswear" jacket. You should be able to find something good in a thrift shop. Jackets are good to buy in a thrift shop because it's usually okay if they're a bit big or something, and they're easy to try on anyway.

    Last movie you watched

    Contagion. It was okay. Bonus points for Gwyneth paltrow dying almost immediately. Jude Law is quite bad in it, I think he's doing a failed australian accent ? It was quite well put together in many ways though. Before that, Rubber by Quentin Dupieux which now goes on my list of favorite films.

    ADD vs. INTP

    Yeah I think the ADD ADHD thing looks kind of shoddy. I think maybe some people just aren't so suited to certain tasks etc. But I wouldn't say I have all that much info on the issue, just a personal opinion type thing. Some of my friends were turbulent children put on ritalin. I think it's...

    Writing game!

    Desperately, I search my memory, but I find that trying to recall how or why I am here is akin to trying to remember a dream, concentrating harder only pushes information away, like trying to grasp more tightly a handful of sand.

    Phobias

    Oh yes you mentioned it in OP, I forgot. I've always thought of it as a fairly rational fear. It makes perfect sense to feel danger in these cases. However, you could try and do some rock climbing or something as a hobby I suppose, taking it very slowly, if you were at all interested in...

    Phobias

    By exposing myself gradually to heights. For example I have been exploring the catacombs, and doing so sometimes requires one to climb up and down ladders that reach 15 meters down or so. I force myself to do this, and my anxiety has considerably decreased whilst doing it. The first few times I...

    The degree to which one is selfish is an inherent characteristic that cannot be altered

    The degree to which one is selfish is an inherent characteristic that cannot be altered

    You don't sound too selfish to me. I mean, everyone is a bit etc. but selfish people don't really notice their behavior is selfish, and don't characterize it as such, because they don't assign negative value to their behavior and 'selfish' is a term loaded with negative value. I guess maybe an...

    Are you responsible for infecting other people with a cold

    I have a work colleague who is angry that me and my other colleague are the likely "culprits" of infecting her with the cold that is going round at the moment. She says that if we are sick we should stay home and not take the risk of transmitting it. Do you think that this is legitimate ?
