    Default Type this monologue:

    The first mistake is unnoticed - it is the dependency that build up without awareness, the root is hidden in plain view, as it comes under the guise of good feelings, closeness. The second mistake is the visible mistake, the 'external problem', that you see and react to. this is what you think is the cause of your suffering. And yet, all that it really is is an event in time, undualized, neither good or bad. The third mistake is thinking the second mistake is what caused you the pain you feel now, when in fact, the source of the pain is the depedency you initiated in the first mistake. The first mistake grew under the right conditions, and succesfully bloomed pain and suffering. The first mistake was attachment to something, an expectation or an idea, a solid vision of "the way things should be", often going directly to your favor. The first mistake is that of the ego, the mind's sense of self.
    [11:12:23 PM] : the ego is the selfish idea of "me" and "my", it is what makes the child suffer when the toy breaks... not because the toy has any real value, but because it was associated as "mine", and now a part of "mine" is gone.
    [11:12:34 PM] : And so, there is suffering. Suffering in the world.
    [11:13:51 PM] : the mistakes are 'sins' - the original word meant "missing the mark", or more accurately, and error. a Misperception. The more you build on that misperception, the more pressure mounts. At first when there is little pressure, the fault is small and the potential is minimum.
    [11:14:14 PM] But as more is built on that fault, the pressure increases. And then, suddenly, once the last threshold of the faulty structure is breached, all the built up energy and expectations.... is lost. Gone. The instantaneous energy shift is felt, and pain is experienced. Pain is experienced, the mind wonders why.
    [11:15:46 PM] : The ultimate remedy is to not make the first mistake - to always be present and leave no room for delusion.
    [11:17:27 PM] : The remedy for when you are at mistake three is to realize what happened in mistake one, and realize the entire series of events was misguided from the very start. By accepting the origin of the mistake, the pain collapses, there is nothing to take seriously.
    [11:18:03 PM] : The peace that always was returns. The peace that always will be remains, regardless of the momentary happenings, the thick of thin things.

    I think it's Ni. and Te. ENTj.

    But I don't believe you can type someone like this. I'm only typing the monolouge.

    Dominant fields of conversation for Te :

    * optimizing actions and processes
    * correct actions in various situations
    * clarifying information
    * perfecting old and inventing new methods and forms of activity
    * new constructive applications of objects in a concrete situation

    Dominant fields for Ni:

    * discussing processes;"the history of the issue"; "the philosophy of the situation"
    * discussing imagery, associations, and recollections
    * foresight or anticipation
    * interconnectedness of objects and processes
    * the topic of changes
    * the topic of style

    I think it fits those pretty well.

    I found it boring to read, for what it's worth.

    I found it fascinating, if a little flat - if I try to write poetry, it tends to end up like that - talking about grand concepts but without refering to minor\trivial things...maybe UDP wrote it?

    It is not poetry, and it was not intentionally made to sound like Buddhism. It was a secular approach.

    I know, it sounds nothing like poetry - which shows how good I am at writing poems .

    Editted because of mistakes and general not making sensiness.

    Ni without a doubt.
    But, for a certainty, back then,
    We loved so many, yet hated so much,
    We hurt others and were hurt ourselves...

    Yet even then, we ran like the wind,
    Whilst our laughter echoed,
    Under cerulean skies...

    I used to write a lot like that when I was younger, in my days of existential quandary.

    I'd definitely say some kind of NT, not because of the subject matter, but because of the phrasing. My first guess was INTp but it could very well be INTj, there's definitely quite a bit of Ti or Ni at work here.[hr:d734da1512]
