    Circle-jerking and professor's 'interactive sessions'

    The interactive sessions at my political science major's college classes are just BAD. The professors start something known as 'interacting' and the whole classroom becomes reddit.com. The professor is akin to a famous OP who makes a very politically correct post and the classroom becomes those...

    Is there a way to get rid of cultures but still maintain an alternative for a social glue?

    Don't forget that cultures have very strong relics that exist for eons to come. These relics are - 1. Surroundings 2. Behavioural patterns passed down by family 3. Regional identity - behavioural patterns passed down by the community to the family 4. Language 5. Possibly DNA 6...

    "We are undeserving of this planet"

    The locus of perspective matters. You are absolutely right if everybody considers the situation from the locus standi of a human being otherwise it does not matter. I mean if somebody starts a movement 'Stop killing of Samaritan microbes', it is hard to judge if they are stupid or not

    Judging people and figuring their behaviour

    What's your way of judging people? I refer to 1. Maxims 2. Ideology 3. Observation of certain traits 4. Wisdom 5. Maturity 6. Quirky observations 7. Intuitions Among these, what do you use? How do you observe and deduce someone's baseline behaviour and decide what to do next? My grandma...

    Humour on self, self-loathing and humility

    That's authentic individualism. What i meant by not letting people see it is that it is unwise to expose vulnerabilities so tangibly because what I have learned by experience is that almost every human being gets better and better at reading other humans. This is invariant behaviour which...

    Humour on self, self-loathing and humility

    In my opinion, self-humour should mostly not be displayed outright to anybody but having it is important. In my case, self-humour is important for me because it gives me a lot of 'Eureka moments' and leads to self-growth. I have found that having a conversation with myself is definitely a good...

    Am I on the autism spectrum?

    I admire your prudence. However people with depression usually find doing everything difficult. I had to cease a relationship with one of my best friends because his depression was getting in the way of our friendship and there was no self-growth at all. I think AK should try therapy. I am...

    Am I on the autism spectrum?

    The only funny thing I find about your assertion is that you keep thinking that you are an Ni-Te user and then you keep coming up with new justifications for the same like a Ti-Ne or Ne-Ti user. If you have never seen how an INTJ / ENTJ behaves, you should try to find such people. Usually they...

    Humour on self, self-loathing and humility

    There is a thin line that exists when you start cracking jokes on yourself. I am interested to understand where that line is drawn which differentiates humour on self from self-loathing. It is often said that a person has humility when he/she is able to able to crack jokes on himself/herself...

    Dealing with types having Fi

    I have always had an easier time dealing with types with Fe. This is because, to me, they are quite clear and direct about their emotions in some or the other manner. They show it overtly which is good and preferable for me because it aids greatly in the trial and error process of correcting...

    not sure where to go in life at this point

    Some questions to ask yourself 1) Does school bore you? 2) Do you have boring/less friends? 3) Are there too little expectations of you? 4) Have you planned your life ahead? The key step is to identify the problems. Sometimes, simply identifying the problems lead to instant solutions or aha...

    Sense of humour is important

    Sense of humour is important

    I won't deny that I am not able to provide a suitable scientific explanation on why some humour is profound and some is not but rather being pragmatic about it. No, I don't claim that Shakespheare's humour is profound Those examples were meant to show the contrast. Why? A good stand-up...

    does time really change anything?

    Adapting is normal human behaviour. Most of our behaviours are based on our environments. For example, if you are a loner and if you are a journalist, you'd be forced to be verbose lest you want to lose your job. After you somehow forced yourself to be verbose during work and got comfortable...

    That's likely an illusion (or not an illusion) because you adapted, you changed and then you realized that your basic values the same. So your 'essence' stayed the same.

    Sense of humour is important

    Your critique is rational. There are 2 points backed by evidence that I posit : 1. Historically there have been humours of various qualities. Some of them are deemed of superior qualities and some are deemed as hackneyed and some are deemed as claptrap. There's witty humour, there's run of the...

    Sense of humour is important

    Sense of humour is an important trait. When I say that, I mean that a profound sense of humour is not always possible but simply having it can make a person attractive. There are two ways of looking at the person indulging in humour. The former one is ignored routinely by pop-psy and the...

    INTJ or INTP: How did you know?

    Not holding a certain position when you find there is ample justification in your mind for leaving it. This is basically called adapting.

    We are not 'fine' all the time.

    This is a common problem I have noticed among INTPs. The stronger their Ti and Ne is, the worse this problem gets. Firstly, Ne is the extraverted judging function of an INTP. It means that rather than honing in on a conclusion, it seeks to expand the current scope considerably. This puts Ne in...
