"Men did not love Rome because she was great. She was great because they had loved her." -- G.K. Chesterton
"It is only when men contemplate the greatness of God that they can come to realize their own inadequacy." Jean Calvin
"God is the name by which I designate all things which cross my path violently and recklessly, all things which alter my plans and intentions, and change the course of my life, for better or for worse."
-C G Jung
In addition to the poll in the thread over here (http://www.debatepolitics.com/genera...ex-unions.html (Vote Here On Gay/Same-Sex Unions)), the poll in this thread is also an indication just how out of touch this discussion board is in member political perspective compared to the nation as a whole.
In this poll, nearly 84% have an "N" as the second letter in their character representation with 16% having an "S" as the second letter of their character representation.
But, in the nation as a whole, according to David Keirsey's Please Understand Me II, the book that is the foundational work on this subject for the layman, almost 80% of the population has an "S" as the second letter in their character representation, with little more than 20% having an "N" as the second letter of their character representation.
Yes, the population as a whole is almost completely the reverse of the composition of this political discussion board.
The second letter of character representation, probably the most misunderstood of the four scales that comprise the character representation, is huge as a representation of how, by what mechanism, reality is perceived, from one's outer senses ("S" people) or from one's inner senses or "intuition" ("N" people").
"S" people are more concrete, practical, sensible and realistic .. whereas "N" people are more abstract, intuitive, imaginative and speculative.
And, of course, these two types differ thus greatly on the substantive perception of political issues.
So whereas a number of "N" people may support "gay marriage", amnesty and legalization for illegals, legalized pot, and the extremist like, the great majority of Americans, "S" people, do not support those positions.
Reality check, for all members of this board: you're out of the mainstream of America, most people here at either or both (libertarians) wings of the political spectrum, far removed from the great majority of Americans at the center of the political spectrum.
When the election is over and we open our eyes, it will sadly be too late to wonder what the hell just happened.
Your personality type: INTJ.
Strength of individual traits: Introversion - 40%, Intuition - 20%, Thinking - 67%, Judging - 47%.
I don't think it's accurate. Too many of the questions had the answer "it depends."
 holy crap INTJ completely describes me to a T.
Islam is an antiquated religion and needs to either modernize with the times or be completely eradicated.
There are two types of Muslims, terrorists, and their enablers. They need to fix that if they want to be part of civilized society.
ENTP. Extraversion - 1%, Intuition - 9%, Thinking - 11%, Prospecting - 16%.
Does that really fit me? What say you?
Every normal man must be tempted at times to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin to slit throats. It is inaccurate to say that I hate everything. I am strongly in favor of common sense, common honesty, and common decency. This makes me forever ineligible for public office. H.L Mencken
ISTP. Says only 5% of the population have this type. Guess I'm like a rare gem or something.
