Erm... I'm not sure, but why is it so inconceivable for a person to shift naturally without having undergoing some sort of emotional or physical stress?yes when under stress your mind may attempt to use some other 'circuits' it is not used to using and you will feel as if you have switched types
this may not correspond with your consciously realizing that something is stressing your out in environment
this may last days, weeks, months
however your natural type never changes as that would require your brain to actually physically restructure itself
It's just an idea I have, but what if we weren't confined to either 'yes' or 'no', 'on' or 'off' switchboards? What if it was more like a... range of comfortableness we tended to pull from? I know my perspectives on black-and-white issues are... well, they've been described as simply not fair. But it's really how I see things.
So for someone over a process of months/years to shift their range slowly from one category to another... that just doesn't seem so impossible to me. When someone used to prefer solitude, then later finds themselves seeking the company of others.
Because having to lock somebody into the small confines of one category is just so... I think people are much more dynamic than that. And personally, I'm more willing to attribute personality to a result of socialization than biology. So maybe that's the reason for our different perspectives. roud:
