    I think it has to do with early development if not birth. The thing I'm missing is "how do cognitive functions develop if they indeed do exist?" They are suggested to improve with age but is it age or is it experience?

    But only one coresponds to a logic joke. I used the word "or" making it a disjunction. Though it was a question so that is not a very accurate joke.

    One word seemed sufficient, I was sure it would be obvious what questions I was referring to, it was also a joke within itself.

    I think environments also play a big role on shaping one's personality.

    From my understanding and in my own opinion, with the cognitive functions we are just describing how our brain works.

    In our country it is a well known fact that drinking alcohol from age 25+ is no problem at all because your brain will have been fully developed... A statement which I personally consider to be nonsense, but at times it used to rationalize excessive alcohol usage as if it somehow won't stunt growth.

    According to this: Human brain development does not stop at adolescence: Research our brain doesn't stop developing, certain parts continue to develop over time, even behond the years of 30.

    I think that you can view cognition development the same way as you can see the development in a child. If you actively give your child mental stimulation: in forms of complex toys, intellectual puzzle's, make sure the child does homework, etc, then the child will turn out to be a bit smarter and brighter than most other children around his age, it does mean that a bit of experience will help development. But nevertheless, all children will reach adulthood and will develop with time, the difference will be quite small, but noticeable.

    I do think that cognition can be developed with experience, but only to a small degree, I think it largely depends on age. But, I don't want to undermine the importence of experience, I think that it is the single most important ingredient in becoming succesful, but that would derail this thread even further as it could become a topic on its own.

Now that's a recipe for disaster. Democracy isn't much better. The only reason why you'd want to introduce "everyone over X years old gets to vote" is if you are trying to undermine an intelligent group.
    My little country is run by INFP's, our biggest partys are just different groups of INFP's with different clashing visions, when they have to work together they are never able to comprise, and when they do, they all fail to delever on their promises. We can't handle money, and it shows, our taxes are high. It is all being used to make sure everybody is safe and that everybody is well taken care off, in a way this isn't a bad thing. We constantly get promises, but there is never any decisive action being taken. Luckily, our country has a couple of very succesful entrepreneurs and they make sure we are constantly doing business with everybody all over Europe, if it wasn't for them we would be nothing.

    I suspect that the 'everyone over X years old gets to vote' is closely related to Si/Ne cognition. Si can be an incredibly nice function, I noticed from personal experience that it desires and creates softness, harmony, equality, a hug, internal peace, etc. It cares about this so much that it hinders all potential, it stunts the growth of the individual if it could have a negative impact on the group. It does not care about sacrificing something today, in order to have a much better tomorrow, if it means things will not be equal for all and everybody. Si and Ne are blind to Ni, they really can't see futher than tomorrow.

    Warren Buffet, the richest ISTJ in the world would be a perfect example. He never dared to put a single penny in technology because he had no way of telling its potential. Even today, he avois technology like the plague and sticks to what he knows, the only investment he makes in these area's are through Bill Gates (ENTJ) and Charlie Munger (INTJ). Charlie Munger is also the man who was his business partner in the first place, they made an investment model and found Coca Cola together. Warren Buffet relience on Charlie Munger has been huge, as Warren Buffet has said that Charlie Munger has been his adviser numerous of times, everytime he gets stuck he asks Charlie Munger for help.

    Warren Buffets strategy to get rich is pretty simple in a nutshell: Invest in an already succesful company and maintain it, over the years it will net you profit. And for him, it did.

    Imo, Si runs politics, it can do a whole lot, but don't expect it to care about Ni.
