    If humans were the size of ants

    If all humans were suddenly changed to the size of ants, lets say in 1700 after the steam engine was invented, would we have come to become as "dominant" a species on Earth as we are now? if not would we have been able to in the further future? The miniaturisation grants no special feats than...

    Socionics INTx descriptions vs functional stack

    Based on the socionics functional stack I've self typed myself as an INTj, which shares the functions with MBTI INTP. However apart from the descriptions of the functions themselves, I've found that other descriptions of the INTj aren't very accurate. Going by behavioural descriptions I fall...

    Do you have to learn to smile?

    Pretty much anyone can smile genuinely but being able to smile at you bidding seems harder. I always seem to just make a flat smile whenever I try to smile. I "feel" like I'm putting on an okeyish smile and it "feels" right ( i.e. muscles not to stressed) but my smile is flat. Flat smiles look...

    At what point or when does the end justify the means?

    It's understandable that what is agreed upon generally and in the eyes of the law is that "the end doesn't justify the means" for a variety of reasons, a critical one being that in many cases the "end" is not guaranteed and even if it is achieved it may not be enough or all that we thought it...

    Sam Harris with Jordan B. Peterson - What is True?

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1gdpyzwOOYY I listened to this podcast though only as something in the background and without painstakingly trying to make sense of it, which is probably needed because they talk in very abstract and obscure terms. Jordan B. Peterson is questioned on and...

    Show us your facebook ads

    Machine learning related to MBTI

    I'm looking for any websites that take a machine learning approach to MBTI assessment or any other such topics related to MBTI. As far as I understand it assessments currently are made with the cognitive functions and their interplay, as told by the theory, in mind. Two sites I've found...

    How one type of intelligence correlates with the individual's intelligence in other fronts

    I had a discussion about the topic with my siblings and I argued for: 1) High intelligence and specialization in one area is likely to bleed and seem into other areas of the individual's life. The general ideas and skills picked up from their area of expertise allow/aid them to become a more...

    How difficult is it to type family members?

    I've read quite a lot of posts here saying that second hand typing as opposed to self typing can be very difficult and inaccurate.

    Complete Nihilism

    How does complete nihilism work? Note that I might come off as autistic, especially around the end of the middle paragraph. The only answer I can think of to this is that it doesn't work, because complete nihilism necessitates already being dead, as a consequence of not having the beliefs that...

    It is better to do nothing then to do something

    This could very well be in politics, or psychology, or be about illnesses. It is better to do nothing then to do something, if there isn't enough knowledge available to guarantee a good outcome, and more crucially if detrimental outcomes cannot be adequately avoided. Discuss.

    How are you meant to remember memories? describe your recollections of life. I find that I can only remember fuzzy glimpses of images, some of them with me in it. I highly suspect they've been heavily skewed or entirely made up by my thoughts at the time.
