"The results indicated that unacquainted observers reliably detected the dark triad composite, especially in female prototypes. Thus, not only is the dark triad a set of psycho-social characteristics—it may also be a set of physical–morphological characteristics."

That's like really fascinating!

If some ENTJ female followed by some INTJ female “couldn’t do anything about it,” what makes you think any other MBTI type “could do anything about it?” :mrgreen:

Yeah, Adolf Hitler was probably more of an ENFJ than INFJ and the same applies to Martin Luther King Jr.

I believe my memory is fuzzy but if memory serves me correctly, I recall reading some history textbook having to do with the United States and/or allies of the United States viewing communism or the spread of communism as a threat. Could this be one of those situations where the idiom of “the devil is in the details” ring true? Could this exemplify the notion that credentials don’t constitute everything or omniscience like a PhD historian? Could this be one of those situations where “accuracy” is needed? You see, is it the threat of communism or is it more like the threat of collectivism?

“Fascism, Nazism, Communism and Socialism are only superficial variations of the same monstrous theme—collectivism.” - Ayn Rand
I wonder if Feminism is a form of collectivism as well. :mrgreen:

"It was not long before I was aware that also all my movements were prompted in the same way, and so, searching, observing, and verifying continuously, year by year, I have, by every thought and every act of mine, demonstrated, and do so daily, to my absolute satisfaction, that I am an automaton endowed with power of movement, which merely responds to external stimuli beating upon my sense organs, and thinks and acts and moves accordingly. I remember only one or two cases in all my life in which I was unable to locate the first impression which prompted a movement or a thought, or even a dream." - Nikola Tesla

That was then. Now, the real division is between the sane and the insane, with the insane representing the majority.

Jordan Peterson's primary goal is the psychological and metaphysical strengthening and fortification of the individual. People either live authentically, or become susceptible to nihilism and ideological possession. Take yourself seriously. Know the monster within you. Becoming a responsible person with an integrated character is more important than ever.
This forum is dedicated to the work of Jordan Peterson, a public intellectual, clinical psychologist, and professor of psychology at the University of Toronto.
Free speech, despite the risk of causing offense, is necessary for dialogue to occur between opposing ideologies. No user who posts in good faith will be permanently banned.

Are P-types less susceptible to ideological possession?

Are there insane people at the top? What about warmongers?
