"Question with boldness even the existence of a god; because if there be one he must approve of the homage of reason more than that of blindfolded fear.” -
Maximilian Robespierre - the leader of the Great French Revolution (1789 - 1794).
1. "I think therefore I am". He is a man of developed logical faculty, a strong capability for analysis. He knows how to dig to the essence of things, to reveal their internal structure. "Providence has created myself for quiet study work, to which it dedicated all the rapture of my soul", – said Thomas Jefferson, during whose presidency the territory of the US has grown nearly double. He considers all situations of life from the logical viewpoint.
I want to hear what other INTjs think about this. TJefferson had the birth of America, MaxRob had the French revolution... what about the rest of us?
I bring this up because just now am have I really become "aware" of mine - more so, how to do about documenting it and measuring it, creating/becoming aware of the infrastructure of it.
Does anyone know what I'm talking about, or refering to? If so, write a bit about it. What prompted me to write this was the connection to socionics that I make in my mind, obviously, but also, the joy (the thinking kind of joy, like "yeah, I can't wait to work this out and think about it some more tomorrow - too bad this pathetic body has to "sleep"), the joy that has come from me at long last being able to "put my finger on"- or at least point to- some thing, or idea, that represents this sort of "quest" thing.
My words are so vague, because I don't really understand thoroughly yet. I was wondering if anyone else could relate - and so this post was made.
what do you think?
PS: personally speaking, in reference to my "quest"...
What intrigues me most about this is the wonderful breaking down of the barriers between "self" and "others", and of general conventional thought in general. I feel as though I am becoming closer to the truth through this. Whether it is a subjective truth or a secular thing I do not know, but the boundies between those are even more "complex", in a way.
