First off, methinks you are a feminist and this article of Drenth's was offensive to you somehow. I read the article again, and I fail to see how someone could get upset about sexism from reading that...unless you have feminist ideals. Nowhere does the author make any judgments whatsoever about the superiority/inferiority of having a mind that tends to be more inclined to "dominance" and to have "fewer but more focused interests." No one is saying (including the author) that there aren't plenty of women out there who would not fit that description.
If you want to get upset about that, go ahead, but you lost credibility the instant that you said that most of what CJ supporters believe is "BS." Also, methinks you never read Psychological Types, because he explores far more than just introversion/extraversion in that book. It's definitely not 90% attitude and 10% preferences, and it's not something you can quickly read and easily digest...there's a ton of nuance in there, and he makes a really compelling case.
As for the "debunking" of what the author talked about, you apparently fail to see the difference between intuition and thinking. The article was about Ti, not Ni or Ne. Ti, according to one study (which I can't remember where I saw it) is "found" to be most active in the left posterior hemisphere of the brain. I put that in quotes, because it's not actually a function of any kind, it's just an area of the brain that happens to be extremely well-developed in INTPs and ISTPs. Just because Nardi found a "Xmas tree brain" phenomenon for intuition does not automatically invalidate the idea that men have fewer connections between hemispheres than women. Show me scientific research that shows exactly what these connections are and what they do...Is it not possible that each sphere of the brain could act independently? Maybe what you see on the EEG with intuition has zero to do with the corpus callosum?
And anyway, I could care less if I do or don't have as many inter-sphere connections as women because as Architect says, the latest science and the Big Five are not predicative.
You're confused about a few things but I'll clear it up.
What I "debunked" was my own opinion that it was sexist as there clearly is (according to the cited research) sexual dimorphism in the corpus callosum, for you see... I let go of my bias when I realized I was wrong. I was personally referencing research that was from 1994 and ya things change. I did it on my own, by reading about the topic and coming to the realization that my gut reaction was incorrect. So, that's that. So I'm tired of hearing about it now because I feel I have corrected myself more than adequately. Ok? Good.
The author says that the phenomenon is MORE PREVALENT in INTP than ISTP. IN PLAIN FUCKING English. This is clearly in contrast to the EEG studies which purport that intuition is a whole brain function (I.e. Utilizes the corpus callousum), so IF it wasn't such INTP self-aggrandizing masturbation then the author would have left that bit out because this phenomenon here would clearly be MORE associated with the ISTP type which uses more of the single hemisphere stuff he talks about. So, fuck you twice.
I am completely familiar with Types. Okay, and yes, the bulk of the text IS devoted to defining primarily introverted and extroverted attitudes. Chapter 10 goes into supreme detail about how these attitudes are manifest through the four psychological functions, but the association between chapter 10 and the MBTI is pure horseshit that Personality Junkie has latched on to.
Next.......you seem to think I'm trying to invalidate the idea of sexual dimorphism still which tells me you're a complete moron who hasn't really bothered to read anything I've had to say and is just protecting his buddies. That makes you a stupid twat. I looked into it, and I read the abstracts and I even quoted the Wikipedia article which proved me wrong and then I admitted it twice over so don't bring it up again.
Holy fuck man like you realize your whole post was basically psychotic? I didn't do ANY of the things you accused me of doing.
