    My low processing speeed index

    There is a sort of sliding scale you have to manage too. How long do you gather info before processing? It is almost guaranteed that you will have to act/judge/decide before gathering ALL the info. How far do you take it? Accuracy > Timeliness? Or Timeliness > Accuracy? Personally, I lean...

    Why IQ does not matter as much as people think....

    Fun fact; in gradeschool / early highschool I was considered gifted. With an IQ if 130-140. When I took the test again in my early 20s, I got about 105-110. Does this mean I got stupider? I think it would be even lower today. It assumes your intellect constantly improves with age (or something...

    most dangerous technology to humans if left unregulated

    In terms of what I think would be an issue soonest... I’d put my money on HUMAN bio-engineering. 99.99% chance only the rich and governments will have access. How would plebs ever compete with humans+? Sure, there will be moral arguments against unnecessary engineering, but profits, and...

    Why are you blind to beauty?

    If I am understanding you correctly... It is possible to see everything as beautiful, looking carefully enough. For example, look at expert photographers. They can make a simple pile of rocks or a puddle of water beautiful. It is my belief that anyone else COULD see it too, if they simply...

    Why would aliens be aware of us?

    I was assuming insatiable curiosity. Just as a thought experiment to imagine what the BEST chances of being noticed were. My conclusion is that, even in the best case scenario, it is unlikely we’d be noteworthy.

    what is the mathematics of the universe

    0 = 0 The sum of all things is zero. But you can have one hell of a time modifying both sides of that equals sign.

    Why would aliens be aware of us?

    I doubt we would be very interesting considering how big space is, and how many stars/planets there are. Even if an alien civilization was insatiably curious it would be a very very very very very long time before they got to us, even if we were exceptional. I imagine they’d be sending out...

    Pokémon Yellow

    I played pokemon yellow in grade 5, but it was my cousins gameboy. It was alright. I got my own a year later and played pokemon blue, then silver on it. I think I sunk 80+ hours into pokemon silver. Was the best. Some years later, I got Emerald and a DSi. It had lost its lustre though and I...

    My low processing speeed index

    If I am pondering about anything with any degree of concentration, I am essentially visually blind. I can see nothing in front of me at all. It’s as if my whole field of vision becomes peripheral. This can even happen while I’m actively reading something, which is odd. Very one-track mind I...

    My low processing speeed index

    Psssh, why look and analyze, THEN make a plan of attack? When all else fails, follow the instructions. :) P.S. Do not do this. I would rate my intuitiveness for figuring things out without understanding them exceptional. And I still have issues 33-%ish of the time.

    Are You Smarter Than A Fruit Roll-Up?

    Fruit roll-ups are 100% fruit roll-ups and godamn they know it. They have no fault in being themselves completely. I, a human, cannot hope to match that behaviour of being a complete me completely. The fruit roll-up wins.

    INTJ here

    I tried being an asshole once. I found it surprisingly agreeable, and that frightened me. So, I decided not to continue being an asshole. I’ll still bring out the verbal swords if someone initiates some sparring unnecessarily, however. Welcome to the forum, Mr.Guardia.

    Phobias

    I absolutely hate lil worms. Like maggots and other itty bitty larve. Makes my skin crawl. I would say it is like 99.95% of the way to being a phobia, because I can still act rationally lol I can stand most other things though. Like spiders, beetles, moths, snakes w/e. They’re fine.

    Are you responsible for infecting other people with a cold

    I love how this is so cliche that even Family Guy makes a joke of it. I’ve never heard female coworkers make this accusation or complaint though. Maybe because I live in Canada? Seems like being sick in the States is a much bigger deal (according to other comments here anyways) lol.

    Favorite Star Trek Character?/Data or Spock

    Haha, well Data does the same thing, but he’s not a dick about it. I do like how they’re kinda opposites to each other though. Data is there to learn how to be human. Spock is there to teach the stupid humans and reject his humanity.

    Happiness Test.

    Eh, I was speaking mostly in hyperbole. And I think you may be projecting a bit. I just don’t feel much, if you ask me how I feel about something, I’ll have to meditate on it for a long time, or manufacture some fiction quickly. (For an analogy, it’s like someone rushing up and asking, “what do...

    Happiness Test.

    Happiness is overrated. So is being sad or miserable. However; if I feel myself being pulled towards an emotion strongly, I just go with it until it has run its course. It can be fun. I don’t stop and analyze if I am happy, or miserable very often. If I do, the answer is neither 99% of the...

    Happiness Test.

    You scored 47 out of 115 points. Amazing. Also, the ad on the first page, “JOIN THE FIGHT AGAINST DEPRESSION” lol. What are we gonna do? Go punch depression in the mouth, and stomp all over it?

    Are you responsible for infecting other people with a cold

    My brother and mother are both like that. They can do no wrong, and complaining is breathing. They can give you a logical 33 step process of how something is ACTUALLY that guys fault, and not their own. Such unpleasent people, really.

    Are you responsible for infecting other people with a cold

    It’s her own fault for being weak and allowing herself to become ill. If anything, she should be thanking you for testing her immune system. ... Hah, nah, there is some nuance here. I wouldn’t recommend spreading any illnesses for the sake of it, but you also shouldn’t expect everyone around...

    Favorite Star Trek Character?/Data or Spock

    Spock was just an asshole for most of the TOS (Discovery too). In the movies, and as Spock Prime in the JJ movies, he was much more bearable. Data was likeable throughout. Easy to pick my favourite.

    The "what do I do?" thread for short term dilemmas

    My rule of thumb is to tell at least one person at home where I’m going (and with who, if applicable) and when I’ll be back. I do this when I’m going anywhere, really. I’m treated as an adult (which I am) so it isn’t something I HAVE to do, or even tell my parents. I just find it good...

    Fermi Paradox: Simulations

    You could have them get caught in their own hubris and have it start as an experiment. Like the scientist who ran as a superintendent in a “mock” prison, but started taking it super seriously.

    Am I the only INTP here?

    Oh true, Swampert was a beast as a water/ground type. Especially in the competitive scene. Pokemon Go is pretty fun. If you liked pokemon but wern’t super serious about it, you’ll enjoy it. I also took a multi-gen break from Silver - > X and Y. Main series hasn’t really done anything...

    I don't know.

    To make any assumptions or statements about yourself, you first have to trust your own judgement. If you can’t trust your own judgement, you also can’t trust that you can’t trust your judgement. So, you’re all balled up and can’t get anywhere. Also, how is not knowing the reasoning behind your...

    Super Smash Bros (Ultimate?)

    For me, Megaman and Little Mac were initially just newcomers I wanted to play. Before them I mostly just played Kirby. I really liked the “steal powers from your enemies” gimmick. Megaman and Kirby both have that. I also like the perseverance you need for both (MM + LM) of their games. It is...

    Super Smash Bros (Ultimate?)

    @Cognisant yeah, you hit the nail on the head. If you’ve ever watched Extra Credits on youtube they expand on your ideas there greatly. Specifically their “Balancing for Skill” and “Blue Shell” videos. Essentially, it’s not too fun for MOST people if the more skilled player wins EVERY time...

    Super Smash Bros (Ultimate?)

    Ultimate has a different physics system, and the game is overall faster. You can call me one of the “boring/serious” players in that I turn all item spawning off and just play on battlefield and final destonation style maps. There is still a huge amount of content via matchups alone that the...

    Is there such thing as perfect morality?

    Morality has no “perfected” state. It is just whatever happens to be agreed on at that point in time. “Moral relativism” is the fancy definition. Less suffering caused seems to be the trend we’re on though. I imagine it to be a “good” direction. But I cannot be certain of it. It is just...

    What do you think of yourself?

    Huh... I don’t even know. I don’t really think of myself. Not in the sense of, “how do others view me”, or, “how do I view me.” I do like to try and keep track of my tendancies and capabilities though. I suppose that is pretty close to thinking about myself.

    Do you know everything?

    I’d say ignoring your first thought is a good rule of thumb. Personally, it is required for my survival. My first thought after smelling laundry detergents is that it smells good and that I must drink it.

    Disclaimer: This is mostly observation, I’m personally not interested in having a romantic life.

It’s different for everyone, you’ll hear people give...
