if one only percieves things in boxes, one can fit anything into a box

I always look at these labels, for what ever value they have

but I try not to give them too much power

it's not about labels.

it's realizing that when you're thinking about how you think, you're really just thinking about how you're thinking about how you think.

and so on.

Excellent Thread!

This makes me think of a quote from St. Francis.

"Show the world your faith, and if necessary use words." St. Francis meant this in a spiritual way. But, I can interpret it to every aspect of my life. I try my best to be polite and kind to everyone I encounter. I finds this does have a "ripple effect." Perhaps, related to a universal law or Karma. If you put positive energy out there, most of the time, this comes back to you in one form or another. The same goes for non-positive.

We all know there is too much violence in our world and this does not come from love or "lightness." Darkness can be seen as evil, such as war, hatred and ethnic cleansing. I feel that a greater understanding in needed and compassion as well. Our generation is working hard to achieve this. In my 52 years of life. I have seen great social changes within my own country. For example, Blacks no longer have to sit in the back of the bus and I for one have benefited from this. I was able to have friends of different races. I also, know we still have a long road to travel. But, I have hope that when my grand daughter is my age. She will live in a better world. One that I dream of.

In addition to Irvine's link, just as an FYI, we also had a thread in here awhile back where several of us took a simplified version of this test and shared our results.

Probably not really relevant to the present thread, then again, personality factors might influence how the question is understood.

On the other hand, I would at times critique others for faults that I also have, so there's that hypocrisy there which I think most of us have to a greater or lesser extent.

I don't think I am particularly manipulative or two-faced, so I plead innocent on that one.
Hmm, those tests also pin me as INTJ
