I got to thinking today how far we as a society (US at least) have come in just the past century. It is hard to imagine that about a century ago (more or less) blacks were considered 1/3 of whites and women were men's property and did not have the right to vote or own property, etc. Now not only have blacks and women gained more rights, but racism and sexism although of course still prevalent in society are almost absurd notions to those who are young, educated, liberal, or really anyone who is not ignorant in society. This is so much so the case that racist and sexist jokes made among people of my generation are just that- jokes. no matter how mean or harsh they may be. We also have 2 serious contenders running for president who are a woman (hill) and black man (bamz). Society has also started to become more accepting of homosexuals than they ever were in the past with California recently making homosexual marriage legal and New York giving homosexual partners the same rights as married people. Sooo here are my questions:
1. What functions do you think we, as a society, used to value as opposed to now if they are different at all.
2. Are there types that you think would thrive or do better or enjoy more particular time periods in particular places?
3. What time period and where would you prefer to be in if you could choose and what do you think this says about you in terms of socionics?
Now only #2 pencils will be accepted. Please put your name, section number, and discussion instructor's name on your essay booklet. You have 90 minutes to complete the exam.
i felt like my intro and 3 questions totally sounded like an in-class essay exam.
