Sometimes a rattle snake is just a snake.
Overt analyzing the snake will only allows time for the snake to bite you.
Learn to listen to your gut instincts and move on.

Well, we saved $800 and something bucks by my doing that.  I took the vehicle to just brakes to get them looked at.   They were saying that the vehicle needed rotors, pads and other things (I forgot their name.  Struts?  don't remember.   They seemed extremely pushy.   Red flags started cropping up.   It was exorbitant cost.   They were pushy.  They seemed kind of unprofessional.  They seemed like they were goofing off when they should've been working on the vehicle thereby making me wait longer.   I knew I needed pads and went ahead and bought and had them install just brake pads.       I took it somewhere else to let them examine the brakes.   They said the vehicle was safe to drive and I didn't need new brakes.

What the 2nd place told me was what Just Brakes does is they entice you with a 99.00 deal and then try to pile as many repairs on you as possible.  We saved quite a bit of money because my gut told me that something didn't feel right.

Yep, always go with your first instinct, and never let emotion be a factor in any business dealing, never.

Just to add some info, this "16 Personalities Test" is actually based on the "Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI®)".

http://www.myersbriggs.org/my-mbti-personality-type/mbti-basics/

The purpose of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI®) personality inventory is to make the theory of psychological types described by C. G. Jung understandable and useful in people's lives. The essence of the theory is that much seemingly random variation in the behavior is actually quite orderly and consistent, being due to basic differences in the ways individuals prefer to use their perception and judgment.

The theory of psychological type was introduced in the 1920s by Carl G. Jung. The MBTI tool was developed in the 1940s by Isabel Briggs Myers and the original research was done in the 1940s and '50s. This research is ongoing, providing users with updated and new information about psychological type and its applications. Millions of people worldwide have taken the Indicator each year since its first publication in 1962.

The test was fun and interesting to take.  How reliable and valid is this test?   I've known some people who took the MBTI test one year and years later they take it again.   They get different results.  Another question,  how does it test for truthfulness of the answers?   Example, I could believe I have certain characteristics and put down those answers as though that I do when I do not.   Sometimes one's belief does not line up with actual reality.  One's answers could be based upon false beliefs about himself.   

I was looking at reliability and validity here.  http://psc.dss.ucdavis.edu/sommerb/sommerdemo/intro/validity.htm

Finally, can you really constrain people's personalities to these boxes that are absolute and rigid?   Personality is more complex in my opinion and my question is why can't there be some overlap of these types?

Solar, I was comparing our weaknesses

Mine - INTP

http://www.16personalities.com/intp-strengths-and-weaknesses

Yours - ESTP

http://www.16personalities.com/estp-strengths-and-weaknesses

It seems we both can be insensitive.  For you, feelings and emotions come second to facts.  Me, I get caught up in the underlying logic of things.

For me, I hate rules and guidelines that make no sense and are inconsistent.  I definitely hate political correctness because it stifles reason and understanding.   PC doesn't allow one to develop better truths and understanding.  I have a hatred of arbitrary and illogical standards.  Feminism has arbitrary and illogical standards.

If you state a truth like "life is not fair and you must learn to accept that" I don't get my feelings hurt I will ask well by that logic then we must accept socialism as a part of the unfairness of life and if not, then why not?

Solar, you said you scored as asshole.  I think there are different types of assholes and I guess I'm a different type of asshole.   Hey, I've been called an asshole before.   :lol: :lol: Solar you're not that bad of a guy.

:biggrin:
The only reason I said ass hole, is simply because I really don't give a flying fuck what people think of me, because I know who I am and I'm a man of my word.
To others it's an emotional response when people don't like what I have to say, or in the case of the forum, how I run it.
I started this forum with one simple formula, a safe place for Conservatives to post, not moderates, not Republicans, but true Conservatives.
Those that understand what it means to be a Conservative, have no issues with this forum, it's those that view politics through an emotional prism have the most trouble here and tend to be easily offended, and to them I say grow a spine or get the Hell out, this is not a forum for the weak.

I, and many like me are from another era where PC didn't exist, and for the most part still doesn't and we have little patience for people whom willingly stifle themselves to get along rather than call a spade a spade.

Honestly though I'm genuinely a nice guy but when it comes to business, I pull no punches, you will always know where I stand on any given issue and can trust your first born on my word when I give it, but then, true Conservatives know exactly where I'm coming from.
A mans word is his worth, if he can't keep it, he's essentially worthless, that's how Conservatives go through life in a nutshell.

For me, my thinking on this is different.  My lack of giving a fuck of what people think of me to me depends.  Let's say I do manage to obtain employment.   I do have to care about what my boss things especially when it comes to punctuality, productivity and my performance.  On the other hand, I don't have to care about what he thinks of me in the privacy of my own home.  Let's say he doesn't like people who wear pink shirts.  It's simple, I either don't wear any pink shirts while I'm on his time or get a job somewhere else.  In my own home I can wear all the pink shirts I want.

Walkstall is another example.  He lives with his wife.  In certain cases he does have to care what she thinks.   I get the gut feeling she probably would not like him leaving his dirty socks everywhere.   In this sense, Walkstall does have to care about his wife so he can be respectful and loving towards her.

Solar, you're the owner of this board.  If I want to be allowed to post I have to follow your rules or get off the board sort of like if I was in your house.   In that sense, I do have to care. 

Whether I care about what others think is situational dependent in my opinion.


To others it's an emotional response when people don't like what I have to say, or in the case of the forum, how I run it.


I make a conscious effort to ignore the emotional content of what people say and look at the logic of what they say.  People can state all of the emotional bs and call me all kinds of names and trust me I've been called names but I will say if they make a valid argument I will accept it.  If they call me names or attack me and my character without address my argument and counter-claim I will call them out on a fallacy in logic called ad-hominem. 

I started this forum with one simple formula, a safe place for Conservatives to post, not moderates, not Republicans, but true Conservatives.

That's fine!    I guess this is where the P'ness part of my INTP comes from.   By just creating a forum just for true conservatives only you constrain yourselves to a box.  IMHO, one has to examine his own ideas from time to time as well as the opponents.   I do have problems with the liberal's idea of tolerance because of it's own internal contradictions.  I have issues with certain types of equality.   Example:   I have issues with lowering the standards of the military for women only just to get more women in the military and make the count equal or near equal to men.  That is beyond retarded and stupid.  I have no problem with anyone joining the military who can pass the same mental and physical fitness test as everyone else.  Same with police or firefighting.   What this means is people who want to join have to get themselves into shape to pass the fitness tests.  As a corollary, I don't think a woman should be banned from anything just because she's a woman.   If the infantry requires people to carry 200 lbs of equipment or more at a clip and most women can't do it then so be it.  If one or two women can then I'm all for that.   There is another version of equality that I do agree with and that is the worth of a human being because they're human who is endowed with inalienable rights.

On the conservative side, I do have problems with personal responsibility and the whole idea that only we bring ourselves success or failure.  Here is why.  We live in a complex world in a complex universe and we as humans live in a world of limits.   Yes, we do have an ownership in what we do in our successes and our failures.   But, we live in a society with other people surrounding us.   None of us live in a vacuum.   To me, responsibility is systematic and we all own a piece of the responsibility pie in certain situations.  In a complex system, things don't just spring out of nowhere.    Our decisions we all have are shaped by our very thoughts and our experiences from those around us and our genetics as well.   To me, the idea of personal responsibility is not so clear cut.


Those that understand what it means to be a Conservative, have no issues with this forum, it's those that view politics through an emotional prism have the most trouble here and tend to be easily offended, and to them I say grow a spine or get the Hell out, this is not a forum for the weak.

I have no issues with this forum.   Shoot, I've had more issues on feminist forums then on here all because they were more concerned with the words I used then the content of what I had to say.   

I, and many like me are from another era where PC didn't exist, and for the most part still doesn't and we have little patience for people whom willingly stifle themselves to get along rather than call a spade a spade.

Personally, I think PC is stifling.   IMHO, language should be enriched, not degraded or silenced.

I do the best of my ability to keep my word.  If I couldn't cause I had a death in the family, I would apologize to you for it.

I was picking up my own dirty socks long before getting married.  My mother would have kick my ass if I did not.  Then dad would be next in line to kick my ass if mom did.   :lol: 

I was keep my own clean house long before getting married.  A lot of thing were covered before we married.

Understood, but I've been my own boss all my life and answered to no one, and still don't.

This is true. But keep in mind, this forum represents the majority thinking in the US.
