    Tritype 952 - Knowledge or Nobody

    The song is originally from Oz, yet I found this cover and realized the words struck a chord with me.

    I could while away the hours
    Conferrin' with the flowers
    Consultin' with the rain
    And my head I'd be scratchin'
    While my thoughts were busy hatchin'
    If I only had a brain
    I'd unravel any riddle
    For any individd-el
    In trouble or in pain
    With the thoughts I'd be thinkin'
    I could be another Lincoln
    If I only had a brain
    Oh, I could tell you why
    The ocean's near the shore
    I could think of things I never thunk before
    And then I'd sit and think some more
    I would not be just a nothin'
    My head all full of stuffin'
    My heart all full of pain
    Perhaps I'd deserve you
    And be even worthy of you
    If I only
    If I only had a brain

    Type 9 seems to be seen as this compliant, self-suppressed, blend into the background type. With Type 2 and Type 5, there's so much rejection and resignation of personal identity and feelings. For me, I've only found an attachment to language and the symbolic world as it relates to people and the patterns of life. Yet, simultaneously I find a strong frustration with the limitations of it. This all seems to culminate into some form of existential rage on a deeper level. Katherine Fauvre typed C.G. Jung as a 952 and I see through his work a similar attachment to language and symbolism, never anything about who he is. Reading a book you can often find at least small glances or a reflection of who a person is through their writing. But, in a lot of ways it seems like this inner world of impersonal thoughts and ideas becomes all there is to you. I'm curious if 'Problem Solvers' or others identify with this or have thoughts on it. Maybe I'm missing the mark here, let me know.
