    Do you prefer smartphone or desktop?

    Both? Smart phones are hard to work on, but great as storage devices, entertainment, and for looking up information, including map routes, almost anywhere. But I could probably create or buy a docking interface for a phone to use like desktop. So I guess phone wins. Edit: oh Gopher already...

    I don't like giving charity

    So, question for you If you had a billion US dollars, do you think your life would have less potential for purpose? You wouldn't have to constantly chase after a buck, which frees up a lot of time to get involved in whatever it is that you find stimulating. Of course, maybe the majority of the...

    I don't like giving charity

    :clap: Believe it or not, glancing through the posts, I was thinking about a future where technology automates labor and creates a kind of socialism where people can pursue their goals, rather than being a slave to the labors of capitalism. Not sure if that's what you meant though. But I'd...

    Times you've changed your mind

    Heh, I didn't read the thread, but did you just deny that truth, invalidate it based on your own criteria, or invalidate what the other person finds valid about it?

    Times you've changed your mind

    Maybe this is Fi or something, but I'd like to point out the distinction between making up your mind about yourself (and not easily changing that) versus being open-minded about others. Although typology discussion is kind of dead now, I used to see this a lot with typology in how people come to...

    Eh, some questions.

    Huh, cool. I didn't notice that before. Didn't realize how many people are from Europe and some from the Pacific region. Yeah, now I can insinuate things through people's nationality. :goat: edit: discreetly...that is. :smirk:

    I hate to be INTP

    Aren't we all passengers though? Control is really an illusion. Yeah, some people seem to be in control, but then you take a closer look at their lives and find they succeed by fighting through struggles. They appear in control, but have to fight to succeed; that doesn't sound like true control...

    What do you base your values on

    Instinct Universally, no. Situationally or goal-orientedly, yes. (yes I made up that word) Their own decisions. No. Instinct because it rarely steers me wrong and even when it does, it's like feeding a biological or spiritual need. Because if we're just algorithms, going against that is...

    Pod'Lair

    So is Jung the father? Sister Mary of pure Cognitive Type. Brother Max of gritty MBTI. Oldest Brother Carlton of the Prep school of Socionics Jung the father God of analytical psychology.

    Spiral Dynamics

    Yeah, kind of confused, so I'll just give my opinion on this. But I don't think Artsu is talking about classic psychosis if he's referencing "Dark night of the soul". The mental health system in the US isn't very good. They have a tendency to over-medicate and imprison people for acting out...

    Spiral Dynamics

    I don't get it. Are we supposed to think that people progress through these stages? Cause it all seems pretty circumstantial, like you can be in many stages at once, depending on what you're doing, your own experiences, and what your mental focus is on.

    Also, you have me scared to turn off the lights and go to bed. ugh, I'm too old for this shit.

    The Dyatlov Pass Incident

    You know, I guess you could also break bones without external injury just by applying too much force in certain places. In other words, the ribs could be explained by someone or something applying great force across the chest width. Or in the case of a head, squeezing the shit out of it. Damn...
