    An update on my introversion

    I hardly visit this forum anymore, but I popped in here because I was extremely bored. It got me thinking how far I've come in self development since I used to check this place regularly. Then, I was trying to diagnose myself as some type to combat some weird introverted form of an...

    What's your favorite aspect about yourself?

    I'm just self aware enough to change myself and get some insight on things. Oddly I guess though that I'm without passion and drive. I've just realized this about myself pretty much. I have no passion for anything honestly. I have emotional judgments, but no personal drive. I'm pretty much a...

    January Goals Thread

    Become better. DrSketchpad_2: "Overcome my lazy sack of shit part of my personality. The weight of my ego." DrSketchpad_1:"But I thought we were cool with not being a physical part of reality, DrSketchpad! Come to the non-materialistic side!" DrSketchpad_2:"That's great and all, but I...

    World Council for Gifted and Talented Children

    I was in what they called GT at my school through elementary school (didn't care about the last "test" when I hear the higher grade's gifted classes weren't as interesting) and it was a nice experience. I'm not sure if it was helpful for me overall though. My GT teacher made sure that no one...

    Psilocybin and Openness

    @nanook "Influencing attitudes, such as philosophical appreciation of being alive, is easy, a moderate dose of any entheogen will do the job. The change would show up in a psychological questionnaire, so i wonder how they have tested for openness." Hrmm... I'll have to look closer at the...

    The General Obliviousness of the Post-Millenial Generation

    Information shminformation. I've thought about this sort of thing a lot in the past. XKCD (as always it seems) provides something relevant. Basically, It'd be nice if people were curious enough to seek out information or even realize that they'd be a more useful person by doing so and...

    type me 3.0

    If it was from chapter X, I'd say it's probably an exaggeration of Ni/Si types in general. Unless he says that he's actually observed it. In the Ni section, he points out that a *pure* Ni type (basically no noteworthy thinking or feeling present) will be interested only in aesthetics. He does...

    Psilocybin and Openness

    I don't really have much to say on this, but I thought I'd drop this here. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21956378 EDIT: Complete link: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3537171/

    Your Druthers

    Most definitely you have! Where do you find them? In the wild? Do you have to dig an interesting friend well and draw them up?

    Two Opposing Personalities Within One Person

    Three words: Read Psychological Types. Carl Jung's typology is basically built around the premise of conflicting "personalities." Psychological Types: https://deenrc.files.wordpress.com/2008/03/carl-jung-psychological-types.pdf I love explaining this stuff if you have questions.

    Has anyone gotten over the arbitrarity of motivations?

    That still feels really pointless.

    Has anyone gotten over the arbitrarity of motivations?

    Yeah that has everything to do with what I said. That's basically what my personal "solution" is. That is, to follow an instinctual passion (which functions basically already describe, which is convenient). It's just disappointing that my ego is counterproductive is all. I want pulling my own...

    Has anyone gotten over the arbitrarity of motivations?

    @Tannhauser That's the thing! Why do one of those things though? @Brontosaurie We should form a club. Wait, why though? Damn. @Sinny91 Word.

    Has anyone gotten over the arbitrarity of motivations?

    Sorry if there's a thread on this already.* Have you noticed how arbitrary everything is? I'm not merely trying to express how no atomic truth makes everything... Wait I might have to explain atomic truth. You've probably come across a similar idea in your thoughts, I have no idea of...

    Function most appreciated by you

    Also, if you didn't read below my username, I'm most likely NiFe. And Ni isn't the opposite of Ti. They're very similar in some ways, but are still completely different motivations. Ni wants to build on an idea from surrounding associations and gain a unique sense or understanding of something...
