Continued from the ILI appreciation thread.
Cyclops: "The trap of religion? Perhaps you should start a new thread in anything goes rather than use ILI appreciation thread as a soap box for your views. Among other things you (seemingly unwittingly) have said. For instance that only those with ego N are able to think, (which is pretty much what your saying in regards to deciding/thinking - with religion as your example.):
No, you got me wrong, although I could have been a great deal more careful with my words. I'm sorry
I was just saying that ego N combat religion on it's own level. Dominate T however rely on another information that debunks Religion with out having to see it/fundamentally understand it. I'm not saying any type is better than another type. I was more or less attempting to bring light to the heavy accusation that N types are more religious.
Why are you so upset? I make no claims that Ni is better than Ti, that any type thinks better. Not only do I not have any way of telling because I cannot use other functions as of yet, but it seems to me that format is for the purpose of functions. That you can do so many things with one function and so many with another, so how would one function be better?
Further more, because you hurried me with your accusations, I believe type and religion are unrelated. The reason being that religion is not composed of one line of thought, that for some people it's not based on the ideas but the ideals. In order to quiet many critics, religion becomes well balanced in the different functions/ways of thinking, so as to attract a more diverse group.
Also, and my highest point, one type does not believe like another type. The train of thought/feeling that a person uses to define what belief is for them, contains very different types of information than another type would use. Therefore, because belief is contrasted greatly from type to type, it does not exist, for it is not standardized.
To Phaedrus who wrote: "If we look at the types of the most accentuated and aggressive atheist critics of religious beliefs, many of them are typed ENTp by Rick and others."
"most accentuated and aggressive atheist critics of religious beliefs..." according to who and not all? You people would rather knock me down before I make my point then ask what I'm getting at. You would rather assume that I don't have any valid point, than try to see what I'm talking about. Do you already attain all relevant information I hold? Do you already know everything I could show you? Am I an enemy of other types? Had I not previously said how much I admire LII?
Seek to understand and to be understood, not to discredit and intimidate.
