    They also say they've found correlations between Neuroticism and Conscientiousness. Considering it's all based on how they slice things up, I'd say that's kind of expected and they're going to find some of that no matter how they slice things up. They say "well, this is the natural way traits are divided, because it's based on language" but that's just begging the question, since people adapt language to mean whatever they need to mean in the first place and it's not "natural" at all. I could even choose questions where Openness, Agreeableness, and Neuroticism all positively correlate. This is also a lot of why I don't really even pay attention to typology including socionics and enneagram. People and things > abstractions that are supposed to be people and things but can't ever replace them because they're abstractions

    "Scientists could have the secret. They have identified a chemical in the brain's "memory" region that allows us to suppress unwanted thoughts.

    The discovery may help explain why some people can't shift persistent intrusive thoughts - a common symptom of anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression and schizophrenia."

    Suppressed Semantic Information Accelerates Analytic Problem Solving

    Interesting idea here:
    Prior work suggests that unconscious thinking can improve complex, but not simple, decisions (see also Dijksterhuis, Bos,Nordgren, & van Baaren, 2006). CFS may be a useful tool for sidestepping the potential pitfalls of analytic thinking—namely, getting initially fixated on the wrong thought or idea while problem solving or making complex decisions. We believe that in the present study, CFS allowed unconscious processing, which discouraged incorrect fixation. Because of this initial unconscious processing, the subsequent conscious processing proceeded more smoothly, but still in an analytic fashion.

    It's sort of like the anti-exceptionalism. When I accept myself at the bottom, with humility and listening and work, I can do better, than expecting myself to be given and have resentment.

    There is a lot of get-things-quickly in the world in my own opinion, and a lot of of things we can have which negates what really matters, but, it's the world we live in and we do what we can, no ones got it perfect, or have it all together, mostly we just survive.

    Leo Kanner's article:
    http://www.neurodiversity.com/library_kanner_1943.pdf
    About autism
    In August, 1937, Donald was placed in a tuberculosis preventorium in order
    to provide for him "a change of environment." While there, he had a "disinclina-
    tion to play with children and do things children his age usually take an interest
    in." He gained weight but developed the habit of shaking his head from side
    to side. He continued spinning objects and jumped up and down in eotasy as he
    watched them spin. He displayed an abstraction of mind which made him perfectly
    oblivious to everything about him.
    He appears to be always thinking and thinking,
    and to get his attention almost requires one to break down a mental barrier between
    his inner consciousness and the outside world.



    The father, whom Donald resembles physically, is a successful, meticulous,
    hard-working lawyer who has had two "breakdowns" under strain of work.
    He always took every ailment seriously, taking to his bed and following doctors
    orders punctiliously even for the slightest cold. "When he walks down the street,
    he is so absorbed in thinking that he sees nothing and nobody and cannot remember
    anything about the walk.” The mother,a college graduate, isa calm,capable woman,
    to whom her husband feels vastly superior.


    Donald's father sounds like LII.

    extrospection > introspection

    Head type as in being truly head type and probably 7>5. Too divergent, scattered and expressive for typical 5 and that is the preferred way although long term focus usually helps.

    Both science and art are creativity and imagination and execution,” Johnson says. “You come up with new ideas and you test those ideas and you execute them. So I find that the creative people of the world come in many flavors. People always talk about science and art as being very different things, and I find them to be very similar things.” [...] Socrates (in Plato’s Republic) wanted to boot the poets and storytellers from the city because they dared to boast that wicked men could be happy. That was no way to mold the moral virtues of a serious republic. Yet the Renaissance turned Socrates on his head. It showed artists sculpting the foundations of society. And science ran in artists’ blood.

    "The people who scored high on self-reflection were more stressed, depressed and anxious, less satisfied with their jobs and relationships, more self-absorbed, and they felt less in control of their lives. What’s more, these negative consequences seemed to increase the more they reflected."

    This is 1) a great example of what "too much Ni" looks like and 2) a great example of the ethics of socionics. If you do an IM element (reflection/Ni) for its own sake for too long you will end up neglecting its opposites (Se, Si) and feel unfulfilled.

    But I wouldn't phrase it as a what vs. why distinction like they do, really the point is here: "Asking why appeared to cause the participants to fixate on their problems and place blame instead of moving forward in a healthy and productive way."

    This need to move forward is what Ni looks when paired with Se; Ni on its own can't "do", it can only think and reflect. Se needs to move, but it doesn't have a sense of which way is forward. Only when you use the two together can you have a whole life. It may be that "what" questions are generally more concrete and easier to give useful answers to.

    Nature Human Behaviourvolume 1, pages 890–895 (2017): Regional ambient temperature is associated with human personality

    Human personality traits differ across geographical regions1,2,3,4,5. However, it remains unclear what generates these geographical personality differences. Because humans constantly experience and react to ambient temperature, we propose that temperature is a crucial environmental factor that is associated with individuals’ habitual behavioural patterns and, therefore, with fundamental dimensions of personality. To test the relationship between ambient temperature and personality, we conducted two large-scale studies in two geographically large yet culturally distinct countries: China and the United States. Using data from 59 Chinese cities (N = 5,587), multilevel analyses and machine learning analyses revealed that compared with individuals who grew up in regions with less clement temperatures, individuals who grew up in regions with more clement temperatures (that is, closer to 22 °C) scored higher on personality factors related to socialization and stability (agreeableness, conscientiousness, and emotional stability) and personal growth and plasticity (extraversion and openness to experience). These relationships between temperature clemency and personality factors were replicated in a larger dataset of 12,499 ZIP-code level locations (the lowest geographical level feasible) in the United States (N = 1,660,638). Taken together, our findings provide a perspective on how and why personalities vary across geographical regions beyond past theories (subsistence style theory, selective migration theory and pathogen prevalence theory). As climate change continues across the world, we may also observe concomitant changes in human personality.

    Predicting Personality from Book Preferences with User-Generated Content Labels

    Psychological studies have shown that personality traits are associated with book preferences. However, past findings are based on questionnaires focusing on conventional book genres and are unrepresentative of niche content. For a more comprehensive measure of book content, this study harnesses a massive archive of content labels, also known as 'tags', created by users of an online book catalogue, Goodreads.com. Combined with data on preferences and personality scores collected from Facebook users, the tag labels achieve high accuracy in personality prediction by psychological standards. We also group tags into broader genres, to check their validity against past findings. Our results are robust across both tag and genre levels of analyses, and consistent with existing literature. Moreover, user-generated tag labels reveal unexpected insights, such as cultural differences, book reading behaviors, and other non-content factors affecting preferences. To our knowledge, this is currently the largest study that explores the relationship between personality and book content preferences.

    I think that's called culture, but last time I said that someone told me to be careful saying that or I'll get killed for implying there's a such thing as national character. I don't even know why I would get killed for that because that's still not racist (I mean, if you're around a bunch of people who act a certain way and promote acting a certain way, aren't you likely to pick it up? so statistically culture should relate to personality, even if there are exceptions too) but the word "national" is now always followed by "socialist" or something.

    @Pallas Athena
    The study argues that temperature is correlated with certain personality traits in a region's population independently of national culture etc. (e.g. they noticed a distinct trend between localities in both China and the United States).

    This is interesting and not too surprising to me. It's a well known fact that it's actually *harder* to think about math in front of an audience, most likely because it stimulates Fe/Se and suppresses Ti/Ni.

    More like because you can't do math while performing other activities, as it takes up all your attention (you can't do math while you're walking, you'd have to stop and think. Try to calculate 38 x 42 and you'd pause and think).

    This is actually kind of interesting, because Jordan Peterson says that the gender pay gap is partially because uncooperativeness is what gets people promoted. But he didn't study Japan:

    Then, what is the cause of wage disparity between men and women? Professor Peterson said that the factor that works significantly during career advancement is "not cooperative". People with no cooperativeness have "aggressive leadership" to conform the surroundings, which means that they play a major role in promotion. Professor Peterson thinks that women are more cooperative because they are more delicate than men and that difficulties in becoming managers leads to wage disparities between men and women.

    So perhaps the "feminists" will be a little vindicated that there are also cultural reasons as well.

    @Singu Speaking from a cultural standpoint the "Japanese" (along with most every other "East Asian" culture) are basically all about "not rocking the boat" as it were. On the other hand, Western Culture is all about rocking said boat. Think about it (if you're a Westerner). Who are *our* heroes? Jesus? Dude told the moneychangers and the Pharisees (i.e. the ruling class in his society) in no uncertain terms to go fuck themselves. Socrates? Drank that hemlock because of basic principle (should have tried to spark a revolt IMO but hey, I'm not him even as my type). Leonidas? 300 men vs. a whole army? We got this! Point is, here in the West we've made a habit of lauding those who told their detractors that they're wrong. Far as we're concerned in our culture it was the abrasive people screaming "Fuck You!" that attained the greatest level of success. Why be agreeable? Jesus didn't agree, Socrates didn't depart from his principles to save his life, Leonidas went out swinging...

    Culture matters, and in these things that's something people tend to forget. So do people BTW. Bet things would look very different of ol' Nobunaga had managed to not die like he did. California would've become Japan's equivalent to what Canada is to the British. Just putting it all out there in the hopes of sparking more interesting thoughts...
