For a moment there, I thought the link didn't work but it appears to work for me now.

So which countries in the world are N-types? The answer to that is incredibly easy to answer which are White countries.

One problem with reading articles about N-types being smarter than S-types is that who knows how well it takes into consideration S-types being mistyped as N-types. If mistype is incredibly high, well, it could very mean that S-types are actually the ones that are smarter than N-types.

I just remembered someone on some INTP Reddit said that the above is the most ego boasting article ever. :lol:

The program is due to be fully operational by 2020, but is being piloted for millions of people already. The scheme is mandatory.

1. Banning you from flying or getting the train.

2. Throttling your internet speeds.

This is according to Rachel Botsman, an author who published part of her book on tech security on Wired last year. The exact mechanics aren't clear yet.

According to Foreign Policy, credit systems monitor whether people pay bills on time, much like financial credit trackers — but also ascribe a moral dimension.

Other mooted punishable offences include spending too long playing video games, wasting money on frivolous purchases and posting on social media.

3. Banning you (or your kids!) from the best schools.

4. Stopping you getting the best jobs.

5. Keeping you out of the best hotels.

6. Being publicly named as a bad citizen.

A a 2016 government notice encourages companies to consult the blacklist before hiring people or giving them contracts.

There is also a list for good citizens — that will reportedly get you more matches on dating websites.

The BBC said that Baihe, China's biggest dating site, is boosting the profiles of good citizens.

"Illusions, Mr. Anderson. Vagaries of perception. Temporary constructs of a feeble human intellect trying desperately to justify an existence that is without meaning or purpose. And all of them as artificial as the Matrix itself, although only a human mind could invent something as insipid as love." - Agent Smith from The Matrix Revolutions.

Could the above be a reflection of The Black Pill?

If I read the above article correctly, buying too many video games would constitute an infraction. So is it buying too many video games or spending too much time on it that is deemed bad? See, they are different things.

Watching an INTJ chick shedding tears while talking is absolutely fascinating. :lol:

Put Trump next to Obama and Trump is the alpha. Put Trump next to Putin and Putin is the real alpha and the real man. :mrgreen:

It wouldn’t surprise me if some people would say that Stephen Hawking wasn’t INTJ based on the above. It wouldn’t even surprise me if some people would say he was INFJ.
