    Or, more indicative of his own type, than anything else.

    I saw these as they were considered related videos to the video discussion videos we've been posting lately. I though they seemed rather low-budget pop-psych-like, though they do seem made in a way to appeal to more people than those who would willingly be forum dwellers. I liked his term of duality being a "complimentary" relationship, which is true, but I like dual as well.

    The Bar: DSI vs the rest of the Socionics community


    "It makes sense to me that strong Si types can do nothing better than to slag off the strong Ne types because sensors generally cannot achieve intuitive thinking without mind-altering drugs. Even Sigmund Freud (an ENTp) took Cocaine to arouse his intuition above the norm.

    And what purpose does drugging a strong Ne type serve to subdue his intuition and "convert" him into a sensing type? It serves the needs of the Si subjectivist world that need to remove the "gifted" souls that innocently give them inferiority complexes just by having a brain that works differently. Rather than understand it they would rather maintain their Si "labels" and deny the reality of the intuitive type's real potential contributions to society."

    Regarding his website - it looks like he's done a lot of work since my last visit there, which was very long time ago and when it was just a messy pile of MBTI-influenced crap, from what I remember. Will have to check it out to tell you what I think.

    I'm unfamiliar with his book.

    Spencer Stern doesn't know any more about socionics than the typical person on this forum.

    It'll attract more people. They'll go 'Hmm, interesting.' But only diehard nerds will analyze it as much as we do.

    I'm going to work my ass off to make sure that the documentary is more informative/interesting than those.
