    Cool Brain Hemispheres and Personality Typing In Various Systems

    Came across this in an unexpected place on the internet.
    It shows (supposedly) where this information is mapped to in the brain.
    It includes temperament, MBTI functions, enneagram types, and systems I've never heard of before.
    Pretty neat.

    I'd post images if I could. So check it out!

    And I would hide my face in you and you would hide your face in me, and nobody would ever see us any more.

    Not that I disagree with the definition, but the fact that she consulted a dictionary for her opening line is an essay writing 101 no-no


    Anyways, onto substance.

    Brain mapping is nowhere near as regular as all this correlation mumbo jumbo would have you think. I do find it interesting that many different people across vastly different cultures have found similar patterns of 4 thinking styles; but she's going too far to attach all of it to specific, discrete portions of the brain. I don't want to go into detail about brain plasticity, since it should be common knowledge at this point, but look at people with hemispherectomies. If this notion that different thinking style are allocated to specific brain locales, then such people would be rendered perhaps completely incapable of any basic cognitive functioning. But time and again it's been demonstrated that their brains rewire themselves to compensate for losses elsewhere. I can't say how such a surgery effects one's personality though, and I'd love to see some studies done on it.

    I like the quote below her photo.

    This model would be quite ironic considering SLEs and ILEs are often labeled "sociopathic" for Fi PoLR, and yet the "EP" region of the one is the part lacking activity in the brains of sociopaths.

    I think we can safely say this lady is full of shit though, considering she labels the occipital lobe, which is primarily the visual processing center of the brain and is documented as showing increased function in the brains of sociopaths, as "harmonious and stable," when sociopaths tend to be impulsive, unstable, and not much interested in harmony except for functional and deceptive purposes.
    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'd read it thoroughly but I really don't have time.

    Love this, and can relate (even though I really wish I didn't):

    "Perhaps the greatest loss you can experience in life is the loss of who you were intended to be innately - and the authentic realness you never lived in all of its thriving fullness."

    Man, fuck life. If this is how it ought to be, then we shouldn't have evolved into humans with brains and emotions in the first place...
