    As has been noted more than a few times before, I don't think internet forums, and political internet forums at that, should really be viewed as being representative of the general population in this regard.

    Not representative at all, sure, but you'd think it wouldn't be completely up-side-down. Do you suppose it's the politics or is it the forum format that we are attracted to?

Instead, I reserve my own energy, and express myself without maximum personal contact, which enables me to stay somewhat focused on ideas and concepts, rather than feeling like I need to escape. As a rule, when I socialize, it's going to usually be with one person, two at the most, and with someone who shares many of my own personality traits. When I go to a party, I'm usually the one that you will find sitting outside, looking at the setting sun, or the moon and the stars.

    I just tend to suspect that people who communicate in this format, generally tend to be a little more introspective, because we like to be deliberate with expression, rather than just filling up time and space.

    Re: What's Your Personality?

    In addition to the poll in the thread over here (http://www.debatepolitics.com/genera...ex-unions.html), 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.
    You don't trust Trump? Well, there's only one way to leverage him to do what's economically right for us all: Powerful American Political Alliance. Got courage?! .. and a mere $5.00?

    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."

    [edit] 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%.

    ENTP.

    Does that really fit me? What say you?

    ISTP. Says only 5% of the population have this type. Guess I'm like a rare gem or something.
