  1. (Scientists/Academia) Type by interview

    Myers Briggs Forum
    Hello everyone and happy holidays! A few weeks ago I found a website "-X-type/typology-X", where "-X-" stands for any letters or characters, which split the usual 16 MBTI personality types in subtypes. Moreover, the main idea was that you could type someone based on facial gestures and body...
  2. [INTJ] Discussion: INTJ Hero vs. INTJ Villain. Who would win?

    INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    In a hypothetical scenario, which character do you think would outlast the other? Do you believe an INTJ's cognitive functions are specifically geared to make him/her a stronger villain, or hero? Is there any existing media (books, movies, tv shows) where something like this is depicted?

Scientist Pallab Ghosh says:- The project could help shed light on why some people are naturally scientific, musical or artistic. Some of the first images were shown at the...
  6. [INTJ] Not Scientists?

    INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    Is it just me or does "The Scientist" seem to be a drastically misleading label for INTJs? I'm not saying that we don't like science. I personally adore it and can spend hours reading up on science journals or watching the science channel. I was great at science in school until I realized how...
  7. Skin cells 'turned into neurons' by US scientists

    Science and Technology
    The scientists manipulated the process by which DNA is transcribed within foetal skin cells to create cells which behaved like neurons. The technique had previously been demonstrated in mice, says the report in Nature. It could be used for neurological research, and might conceivably be used...
