    I wonder if anyone on this forum who supports Greta now also voted or showed support for Trump.
    a huge problem that we have is that most world leaders are ST types with low intuition, so they rarely think about the future consequences of their actions, or don't concern themselves with threats that are far away into the future (although they aren't far away, since many people are already affected by climate change). another pecularity of trump is that he's an aristrocratic type, so he won't listen to the words of a child.

    I type Trump SEE. If anyone wants to understand why they will have to wade through the sea of posts in the Trump thread. STs are not the only low intuition types according to socionics. Trump is an emotional diva prone to temper tantrums. If he were a woman I doubt as many people would think to type him with logic in his ego. Maybe we will find something to agree on someday.

    Not to mention there are plenty of STs who are concerned with climate change.

    Eh, I guess. It’s a complicated issue. And there’s nothing new being brought up, it’s just bringing back the negativity and division.

    We need unity.

    But in the end,

    Rationalization aside, we are a divided country and the dominant, more popular thought will win out.

    Imagine taking a child's political views seriously. Twitter did this to us, where we think everyone's opinion is equal.

    Take from that what you will, people with no education challenging scientific consensus or a child lecturing world leaders.

    She's just a mascot for a political movement, its all theatre.

    Her type seems ESI. Lots of ethical judgment going on yet very little expression.

    From https://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Greta_Thunberg

    I want people to unite behind the science... And that is what we have to realize, that that is what we have to do right now.. I’m not the one who’s saying these things. I’m not the one who we should be listening to. And I say that all the time. I say we need to listen to the scientists.
    Te valuing

    That happens all the time. That’s basically all I hear. The most common criticism I get is that I’m being manipulated and you shouldn’t use children in political ways, because that is abuse, and I can’t think for myself and so on. And I think that is so annoying! I’m also allowed to have a say – why shouldn’t I be able to form my own opinion and try to change people’s minds?

    Thurnberg has an uncanny ability to concentrate... “I can do the same thing for hours,” she said....She began researching climate change and has stayed on the topic for six years. She has stopped eating meat and buying anything that is not absolutely necessary. In 2015, she stopped flying on airplanes, and a year later, her mother followed suit, giving up an international performing career. The family has installed solar batteries and has started growing their own vegetables on an allotment outside the city. To meet me in central Stockholm, Thunberg and her father rode their bikes for about half an hour; the family has an electric car that they use only when necessary.

    Based on this site and the wikipedia page on her, I'd say she might be Te valuing, strong N, and so/sp (or sp/so).

    I agree with your argument about politicians or leaders having low intution is not a good thing... because for making important decisions that involces a lot of people you have to look at the big picture in a competent way.
    But I doubt that the most world leaders are ST, there are also SF leaders.

    What I can tell about Greta Thunberg is that she's an intuitive type and she's highly intelligent.
    She achieved best grades in different subjects in school, despite she had plenty of absent days in school.
    She learns subject material in school very quickly.

    @xerxe, that’s not really a convincing argument. Europe has enough weapons to kill everyone heading North.

    A better argument is that delaying climate change solutions will cost an exponentially greater amount of money, and if it isn’t dealt with soon, your granddaughter will be living in a garbage bag and eating her dog.

    That doesn't carry the same punch, Adam, because conservatives believe they can isolate themselves from social collapse by retreating to fortified estates or gated communities. For some reason, they don't feel the same way about an influx of dirty black and brown people.

    it's doubtful due to people activities. but is used to reduce the production. such to reduce material level of people's life, reduce population, to reduce sparing of resources on anyone besides a minority with money.
    the problem with emigrants is economical and political. those are pushed to Europe intentionally. one of reasons - it's a kind of war and a stick of USA against European states. also this helps later to establish more of fascistic ideology and reduce socialistic norms which are for the interests of majority. this helps to support islamistic bands to war against today Eastern nations to supress and ruin them. etc profits
    The main reason for emigrants in Europe is the wars and destruction by USA and by a part of comprador/egocentric elites of Europe made in Middle East states since 2000s. This is supported by the sabotage inside the Europe by not resisting to redudnant emigrants and them not be controled good. Also poverty in Eastern states is supported by the sames - as capitalistic regimes allow nations to be robed by them. Capitalism is antinational and antihumanistic as it's based on individualism - it's just economical banditism, which is partly supressed near the ones who robs others as those need a place to live to have some protection and some technology development somewhere.

    while that girl is just a clown to distruct the attention from real reasons. also she represents a hysterical image of antihumanistic propaganda. if those who have power cared much about climate they'd arised energy efficiency, developed and used more modern technologies, made products which worked longer, did not supported idiotic approch "buy new stuff regularly even when you do not need it really". the main aim is to reduce mass production for the reasons said above

    where is the right sub-forum?

    I never asked of splitting a thread. I asked that only one, the first of a series of very nasty threads, was closed, after some mod had split it. then "you"'ve split even other threads, so that means that you saw the shit that was going on and never took any measure. just a reminder, what was going on in there was heavy insulting, libel, harassment, threatening. bullying. which is against the forum rules, right?

    then one calls a trans "he" and the mods are suddenly righteous.

    you need a reality check sometime, you know.

    I deleted the thread you asked to be deleted. There are several mods here so I do not know what I may have split. I was not there when you were being attacked later and the dog comment was made but I warned the person when I returned and saw it had been reported.. I am not sure why you think you can get right in the middle of conflict with forum members and say just as nasty things back to them then get indignant because something isn't done about it. If you want your complaint to be taken seriously maybe don't go off on the people you believe are harassing you? I am not going to bring up what you did but your hands aren't exactly clean. Happy we can provide mutual reality checks.

    You must not realize that both sides were attacking and reporting each other about the trans issue. No one was innocent. If you have more to say about mods post it there but read the rules first concerning mod decisions. Not sure where people get the idea that mods read every single post.

    If you have a problem with a post specifically then report it and a mod will look at it and decide what if anything should be done. Do not post complaints about specific forum members at the link above.

    A list of mods can be found here. If you feel you are not getting help from one then you can try another.

    I completely agree that the USA is mostly to blame for the refugee crisis. The UK and France also, to a smaller extent, as well as some of the other NATO countries. I think they're the ones who should be dealing with it, not Austria or Sweden.

As for the train use, high speed rails are more energy efficient than planes. It might be slower, and more personally expensive than a plane, but it trades the convenience of fast and cheap for the convenience of using that time in productive as well as relaxive ways.

Silly stuff like that people can still nitpick and they'd technically be right about it, so might as well do something that doesn't actually create additional waste and is already headed the same way. Unless you're running an emotional campaign which is all about getting people on your side. If you want to really avoid waste, arrange not to be there in person, but via video or something. . . but that just wouldn't have the same emotional impact would it?

    Edit: Sigh, politics politics, it's all politics.
    She will always be nitpicked by her political "opposites". The only reason why people care anything about her is because she is apparently "liberal" because she has taken up on climate issues (even though we don't really know her political stance).

    But climate issues are neither left nor right. In non-Western countries, conservatives also take up on climate issues. Or some liberals become anti-climate change conspiracy theorists. Climate change didn't became a dividing political issue.

    So indeed, it's all politics. And see how rational and logical all that really is? It ends with apparent logic and rationality, but it's all actually starting with emotions.

    Trump said that climate change was a hoax created by the Chinese. Now imagine how the Chinese conservatives will react to that.

    They will say, "Ridiculous! We did not create such a hoax! I will prove it to him that it has nothing to do with us, and it's all real!"

    @Aylen
    You say I've been as nasty as the ones who, for months, went on to: harass me, spread lies about me, insult me, wish my death, threaten of hurting me and the people in my real life... when my replies were usually ignoring their insults and never went beyond calling them "delusional", "ass", or, godforgiveme, "shit". Fuck that. Do you really think this is a fair judgement of yours, a reality check?

    If you want your complaint to be taken seriously maybe don't go off on the people you believe are harassing you?
    If a gang of people assaults you, do you become guilty if you defend yourself?! Mad.

    I've thanked the mods for closing the first split thread in May, a very nasty thread that they had allowed to open. I've never asked anything to anyone anymore, if not to remove a pvt picture that a member decided it was cool to make public.

    3 times, other members, not me, requested that the insults of a a particular member were deleted. The vast majority of the insulting posts were made into split threads though, i.e. the moderators knew and allowed what was going on.


    But back to the initial point: you say that, in my case, the nasty things were exchanged mutually, and that, in the other thread, you deleted the transphobic comments and others for they were mutually offending...confirming that you decided to moderate the comments about gender identity, rather than the plain bullying ones.

    I was acknowledging this, not making a fuss about the lack of proper moderation of this forum, which I know very well is not all your fault (and that you're probably the most committed mod around), but if you care to go through the whole story again, at least don't tell me I can't complain. I can and should have done it before.

    I watched her speech to the U.N. She came across as emotionally unhinged, even possessed. As a result, I believe she is mentally disturbed (clinically) and do not think it is reasonable to assign a type to her - notwithstanding that the brain develops quite rapidly at her age. All I could say with confidence that she is an iNtutive, and based on her dialogue - heavy on reciting facts and data, with little concern to form some logic connecting the points together, instead she relied on emotion - I would say probably Te/Fi valuing, but weak Fi, hence the awkwardness. So ILI or LIE are plausible guesses. But I must stress that we cannot come to a conclusion at this stage.

    Her supporters are in a difficult situation. Even the French government, which is quite left-wing, has already found her ignorant moralism insufferable...so you cannot have it both ways: if you want to give Greta the platform and the publicity of an adult, she and her ideas will be subject to the same scrutiny, and the consequences they entail, however uncomfortable that may be.

    She is being compared to Jesus, called the savior and light of the world, and I quote this verbatim...from Sarah Silverman Nonetheless, such comparisons create a burden of expectations as well as caressing the ego of a child. She is projecting her own personal strife onto society, but I think the pressure of this will destroy her within a decade. She is being used as a sacrificial lamb by her parents and the media to incite fear and hysteria.

    P.S. If anyone wants to understand what is actually happening to our climate, I am happy to explain.

    Based on her facial expressions, a friend of mine compared her to one of the children in Game of Thrones:



    How ironic, for today all the indoctrinated schoolchildren were to go out on a "climate strike", but as Fate had it, we had an unseasonal snowfall, they all got cold fingers and toes and scurried back home to bed!

    No, you can't have winners without losers even if we don't care about the losers they still exist

    Nah, you definitely can get win-win situations. That is, for example, cooperation is clearly a "natural" behavior that evolved to benefit every party involved, more or less.

    Well yeah the parties involved wins but someone else loses
    For example if two companies cooperated to make a new product and that product was a success both companies wins but their win means their competitors get less customers and profits thus the competitors lose

    Still, let's take a look at the situation of non-controlled global warming: some may survive, but extinction is possible. Survival will either result in conditions similar to Fallout or will take us several centuries back (we may never develop this much again, actually). Some may benefit from fossil fuels for now, but eighty years later they (and their descendants) may be as well dead because of their actions, and despite spurious immediate profits.

    If we go extinct, we all lose; if life goes extinct (excluding some very simple forms), and with the (pretty high) possibility advanced organisms are just an evolutionary fluke (1/x chance that may not happen again), it is a lose-lose situation. The whole concept of winning and losing is a quasi-objective human (a high IQ animal) concept and applies mainly to humans; we lose, nobody really wins. You make an assumption we have some competitors (by the way: we need closed systems to talk about losing and winning imo, but that's another thing; in the companies case, you should assume that the market ~doesn't grow, there is no way the loser company can benefit, and the "watching period" is finite), the reality can be more gray.

    an english interview with her. "I'm a realist, I see facts"

    she doesn't want to go to school because climate change is threatening our very existence, and it doesn't seem like we are even remotely capable of preventing it. I find Greta extremly inspiring, and it's sad that this young and intelligent girl is one of the few ray of hopes for this planet.

    lol not caring about "facts" is a cultural suicide, of course anyone is going to care about facts.

    You don't even need to understand anything in order to know facts, you just have to "trust"! Trust in some authority, such as a scientist, telling you that such a fact is true and accurate. No personal understanding is required.

    In fact, over-reliance on "facts" is low-logic, high-trust. I'm sure this is more complex than something that has to do with Te/Fi.

    Yeah, of course, we all want communism. Caring about climate is just a tool that will lead us to a glorious, red era, kinda like in 1984. Who knows, maybe we orchestrate it, just to make sure the time will come.

    As we all know, wanting to avoid a mass-extinction event is just one step away from communism. And communism is BAD.


    (Fighting climate change with geoengineering - which is a relatively new thing - with its unforeseen consequences? That's almost like burning a lot of coal and thinking "hmm, nothing will happen", but, like, worse. Although we know our planet is warming, we are really just starting to kinda understand what happens in the air and oceans, and our prediction models are still somewhat basic; Earth constitutes a complicated, chaotic system, and you don't know what will happen when you press some buttons "with a good faith")

    "Scientists" are not just "some personal authority". We all about big data and meta-analyses now; it's as close as you can get to "being objective". Please (I highly recommend you to) read Karl Popper and his theory of "three worlds" (a very important piece on contemporary philosophy of science; if you didn't read it). Yes, in socionics and alike ethical types can be too trusting with "facts"; but it's not like a Te dom wouldn't say that. It's not like a Te dom wouldn't trust science (especially when you have a consensus and so much proof), as (assuming they have received adequate education) they understand what science is (its uses, limitations, so on). High Te just gives you more awareness and meta-awareness, I guess; it's more natural and in much higher doses.

    That is, I still think ESI.

    Agreed. I think trump Is a good example of ti polr. He contradicts himself everytime he speaks. There is no logical consistency in anything he says.

    He won the presidency by relying on his charisma and debating skills. His debating skills mostly consisted of using his stage presence around the non se base men he was debating and bullying them with it until he controlled the stage. Then against Hillary it was a bit more complex due to the russians and emails but he himself stuck with a similair debate style. Even started the whole "lock her up" catchphrase and all this button pushing bully like behavior.

    He is a good example of an unhealthy se base. I am open to a debate as to why someone would beleive he is SLE but I think See and also 3w2 makes the most sense

    If she's autistic then that could throw a wrench in the works. I know an autistic ILE who likes routine and predictability, and who isn't interested in pursuing new ideas unless they're proven to work under all imaginable scenarios.

    Heh. Ne is like opposite of autism as in meaning of the word. Autism as in word means honing in the surroundings in self submerged state like looking patterns in environment such as spinning wheels (= dysfunctional Ip + extra strong Ni with logic). Things have come long way and pseudoscience called psychiatry might even map Ne and every other function to autism. Sometimes things such as dysfunctional cognitive brain anomaly should be used.
