  2. Anyone want to help make socionics scientific?

    Socionics Forum
    Part 1 is my experience getting into socionics and part 2 is what I'm trying to do to make socionics scientific (which I would appreciate help with) 1. When I first got into socionics, I was offended by the deterministic presentation of the intertype relations and was skeptical if people even...
  3. Subjectivity of Psychological Science & and Type Searching

    Myers Briggs Forum
    ^ This is a link to a brief talk by Michael Pierce about why some people struggle to type themselves. I think as an INTJ (or whatever fckn type I am), subjective confirmation of type is partially acceptable and partially... not inevitable enough. Pierce's discussion of how different functions...

    Science and Technology
    Regionally relevant. From From The last two years where I live have been some of the most unreasonably hot I remember. Even as late as December, we were receiving days that'd seem more appropriate for August. Hopefully this plan can be delivered soon, at an...

    Sex and Relationships
    In 2009, a scientific study appeared in the peer-reviewed Journal Of Experimental Social Psychology. Titled "Who's Chasing Whom?: The Impact Of Gender And Relationship Status On Mate Poaching". I present the study here to solicit PerC user's opinions about a key finding in the study's results...

  8. High IQ people more likely to be diagnosed mentally ill, autistic, attention deficit

    General Psychology
    From the Independent: There's more in the article itself, but...This was something I had long suspected would be the case. I remember a quote from Dostoevsky's "Notes From Underground", "I am convinced that to be acutely conscious is a disease. A real, honest-to-goodness disease." so it seems...

  10. INTP but i dont like science

    Myers Briggs Forum
    There is this stereotype or whatever that most INTPs' like science and techinal devices and stuff. I don't. I was never good at it in school and i just don't think science is very intersting. I'm also not that great with technical devices... History and literature is a lot more interesting to...

    Science and Technology
    I had a full-blown post typed up about how all-consuming the Cult of Science has become... but instead I'll just leave you with this link that perfectly encapsulates my problem with those who claim to "love science"...
  12. [INTJ] Deepest Thought/Idea

    INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    What is the deepest thought or idea you've ever had about anything (philosophy, art, culture, psychology, politics, science, etc)? Something that maybe not many people have thought about or something that takes some time to really think about. I sometimes think about how interesting it is that...
  13. [INTJ] How the Universe Exists.

    INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    Something I've spent a decade putting together and taking apart. I'm a scientist. The Big Bang Theory, to me, is the idea that makes the most sense to me when I am feeling existential. Billions of years ago, the Universe burgeoned and created us from nothing; and from that explosion of...
  14. High Usage of Ni, Am I ISTP? maybe ISFP or INTJ...

    What's my personality type?
    I've been studying this stuff for a while and it doesn't get any easier really to type yourself haha going deeper into the function axes would seem to simplify things, but depending on the position in the axis each function performs slightly differently, especially when you include the other...
  15. [INTP] How to explain things to ISTJ ?

    INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    Hello, I have an ISTJ friend and we are both into science, so we often talk about it. But she wants EVIDENCE for everything, it freaks me out! When I research on one topic I build a structures, everything is linked by logic, and I don't need evidence for many things, because I deduce them from...

    My mum just ended her online business course. Mum: You know the lady I told you about? The sporty one? Me: Yeah. Mum: Sorry, I told her you're a writer. Me: Huh? Oh, no, that’s okay. You can tell her that. Mum: Well, she works with a media company here and the company is managed by the...

    Me: Heeeey mummy, am I soft-spoken? Mum: No, not at all. Me: Hmmmmm. Mum: Why? Me: Cos the guy my friend is introducing is s soft-spoken. Then like the Japanese teacher we match the girl with him that is similar type to him so I'm wondering if I'm soft-spoken. But then again this one is the...
