    Wouldn't that mean that her illness was wrongly prognosed as physical, where it was emotional/social?

    No Such Thing as Mental Illness

    If you are a threat to yourself, where you do not wish to be, or a threat to others where you do not wish to be, you are mentally ill. (In the example of the paranoid schizophrenic). Previous is based on individualism. But the assignment of illnesses is very much a social process, meaning that...

    Is "close minded" related with "J"

    I am very interested in this also, I hope some veteran MBTI experts can answer this concisely. What you said rings true. It is negative to say someone is closed minded, because it is negative. But you bring a good turn to say it also has it's positive sides, some very good sides that complement...

    Evening comrades

    Funny, I am also often obsessed with not being narcissistic. It's often painstakingly difficult to uncover the underlying motivation for things, and easy to be proud of not being a proud person. The nice thing of MBTI types, imo, is that advantages and disadvantages are inseparably connected...

    I need intp advice. Urgently.

    I must say, I had expected my university to be a lot more... university-like too. I've been to the WUR, Netherlands, the highest rated university of my country. A lot of people actually became annoyed at some of the questions I asked, proclaiming that 'it isn't part of the curriculum' and...

    I need intp advice. Urgently.

    If you are going to drop out anyways, you might better do so sooner than later. But as Jenwok said, it is better for your position in the discussion if you can show you've put some deep thought and work into it, instead of stressing out and hysterically deserting (no offense, I know I at least...

    I need intp advice. Urgently.

    Step 1: Inform with your University student office whether you can get a full or partial refund if you decide to drop out. Step 2: If you can get nothing or only a little back, decide whether you can make do with what the university does offer you, ways of minimizing the worser aspects. Step...

    To continue my rampant speculation about unknowable nonsense, here's why: As a God, you can take in the smallest of details of the world you are watching and from that you can already know, in an instant, how it will play out until the end of time. You don't need to let the record play on, so...

    Principelia Asthetica

    You can find beauty in the smallest things. Beauty is also not the subject here, it's aesthetics. You can find a thought beautiful, but can you say it is aesthetically pleasing? And art, imo, uses aesthetics (not postmodern art, but as said, I don't consider that art) , along with other...

    It's chaos because there's no order to it, it may be predictable (but only through the original function) and it may be deterministic and even simple, but if you cannot discover patterns in it, it is chaos pure and true. Could be that there are patterns in it, that we just can't see, but...

    Hi Blarraun, that is an interesting notion of God, and one that I share. I agree with you that this notion of God does not agree with the idea I tried to explain here, and that whenever we ascribe human reasoning (like motivation) to a creature of higher intelligence we are just lacking in...

    Can *Physics* be evolutionary theory?

    Can *Physics* be evolutionary theory?

    Physics aims to describe primitives and how they interact. This interaction leads to emergent features. Evolution is an emergent feature at a very high level (perhaps the highest?), where certain processes take over the environment through the totality of ever progressing interactions. At the...

    Forum Statistics

    I don't know in what way you are collecting the data, but one way would be to parse all the pages of a subforum, use regex to make a list of all the values of the 'views' fields of each topic and then to make a sum of the list.

    The Return, Pre-Postmodernist Art

    To anyone using the term post-post-modernism, this can only be done in the art world, as the art world is ridiculous. For any other uses, please consider the following: Modernism is the act of 'liquefying solids', or in normal language: breaking down traditional rules and limitations...

    To all practioners of Meditation

    I've had that feeling as well. Not during meditation, but often at the end of an evening of relaxing and finding my mind empty. I would not call it phobia myself, more like a kind of silent panic, hysteria. Since I gave up on ever accomplishing anything in life, nor wanting to, I haven't had...

    Antiquated Language

    I like how old language and old literature (e.g. Oscar Wilde) has a certain class to it, a beauty and passion - passion that seems lost in the present. It's passion and beauty that I seek in everything, and so I too am drawn to archaic language like you. The same thing for music from about...

    Are Insults Legal?

    This. Group selection has effectively overtaken individual selection in modern society. Only when society breaks down into a postmodern society (as we are headed to) roles reverse once more. Many people were afraid the theory of evolution would be misused to deconstruct society, and they were...

    Are Insults Legal?

    Because society is the subjugation of the aggressive to the meek. If aggression is tolerated then it would allow the most aggressive to dominate those meeker and/or ruin the fun for everybody without anybody being able to say anything against it, as being aggressive is apparently allowed.
