Re: Favorite books, reviews, recommend a book

Yes it's lovely! The way raskolnikov changes, how the guilt makes him behave and how we follow this "anti-hero" around (sorry for lack of proper words) and the question he raises in the reader about dubious things. I can't read as fast as i would like cause I'm afraid of missing out. I think he man...

Re: Family influence

I probably always would have tested out as an INFP or INFJ. My family was hyper critical and I would not even consider asking them about their personality traits because they would become defensive about them and intractable about their own ability to change for the better. There behavior and intera...

Re: Instantiated mind

The book is called The Mind Within the Brain by Dr. Redish. Yes areas of the brain represent specialized function. There is a wide variety of experimental evidence discussed in the book. The question of the artistry behind the research was beyond my read of it. The topic was more focused on combined...

Re: Write a Letter to your Lover

Reality is all we need to ever understand except when it comes to pretending you are in a relationship with someone who will share yours. Lets see here..... If was going to write a letter to someone I wanted to make love to, I think it would be pretty simple today. Like 2 words simple. I'm horny.

Re: Funny videos, photos, links, jokes

I like the representation that perspective matters. That one situation is not necessarily anything like you think it is, just like general relativity and modern physics tells us.

Re: Venting and need advice

INFPs sometimes see themselves as advocates for the people they care about. He may be thinking that by cutting off your relationship he is encouraging you to explore professional opportunities your turning down because of the relationship. His fear of losing your friendship may have been overwhelmed...

Re: Culture of fear

I also don't understand why the two party system has survived as long as it has. People don't seem to vote their actual positions on issues anymore and are simply satisfied to subscribe to a pre-determined platform of ideas. The herd mentality is disgusting. It also frustrates me that this is the ca...

Re: Culture of fear

I don't live in USA, but I can notice that the country has become more polarized than ever. People aren't thinking rationally. Herd mentality. I've noticed that Americans seem particularly prone to heard mentality. I think it probably is related to our exceptional instant gratification environment....

Culture of fear

How has the current culture of fear in America effected your life? For me it has been a focus of my depression and detriment to my ability to feel satisfied in my life. When our country fails to follow it's own laws, as it did with the last supreme court justice and in the behavior of our commander ...
