    [–] Isitbullshit: the media intentionally blasts fake controversial, pointless "news" to cover/mask up the real important news. IngramBirdman 1 points ago in IsItBullshit

    I don't disagree with much of that aside the idea that the given message is worrying in that it can devolve into propaganda.

    I would be convinced if the given message were blatant proaganda

    Slippery slope is a fallacy, not a real situation. You have to prove that the slope is slippery, and th fallacy is that it's a given that the slope is slippery.

    Apply the argument to gay marriage, the 21st century poster boy of the slippery slope argument.

    "If gays can get married, goats can get married!"

    "If an anchor agrees to push a benign message, an anchor can push propaganda!"

    Amazing that people upvoted you.

    Very few things aren't scripted. Everything is on the teleprompter for the talking heads that are the anchors. The message given was rather tame, in my view.

    Not creepy at all, but just a network-wide message. If it were something truly manipulative I would be worried.

    Call it deflection, sure. I see projection on your end.

    You can project a surly tone onto what I've written or you can take it as I just said it was meant to be taken. In any case, I take your replies as feedback

    As far as I've heard him mentioned. Like Freud, though, his ideas informed hypotheses that eventually contributed to currently accepted paradigms.

    So we can at least wager that intuitions un-scientifically justified are not altogether trash thiugh are at risk for being elevated to pseudoscience by relatively uninformed folk, but are not as removed from reality as a disingenuously promoted snake oil.

    I'm mostly supporting a forgiving view from a practical standpoint, whereas lots of academic folk would see no value in it at all because they themselves have much, much better tools that the common gay dude doesn't even know about.

    So yeah, lopped off, dried, and placed in a corner as home decor.

    The 2nd year psych thing is easily interpreted as snarky, though it was an honest read that wasn't intended to insult. The rest, as far as I can tell, are just me being unyielding, probably interpreted by you in light of the impression given by the first.

    You are partly wrong, and what you quoted was also explained in subsequent replies. I called what was irrelevant irrelevant, yeah, and I explained how.

    They can't be reduced to 16 types! This may be an example of how harm can be caused by labels. We reduce each other to the labels we give ourselves. Even naming depression as depression can strip away the qualities of a personal experience that are undoubtedly unique to the person experiencing it.

    A proper understanding of what the MB does and doesn't reveal about a person is good. So OP is correct when he says that it shouldn't be taken as the word of god.

    As with any personality test, it's never a binary right/wrong. They're also never all-encompassing. So if someone is in a relationship with an E as an I, it really shouldn't be a major consideration!

    Yeah, Jung, Freud, etc. are considered jumping points, early theorists. There was a debate in philosophy of mind and the broader psych field that saw it discard unscientific notions and embrace the scientific process, still using Jung and Freud to guide the formation of hypotheses. At least among some.

    But the field isn't a monolith, and time has shown core theories in each subfield to be sturdy enough to accept as fact. That doesn't mean Jungian experts aren't assholes, but I've never known one to be an academic. A phenomenon specific to a population that is itself temporary may be useless in a few decades. That humans follow a general form of development pretty consistently does not change with culture.

    We could be cheeky and say that criticisms are equally as temporary, because the science is ever-improving, and the consensus is rarely ever with folk as you describe.

    Oh okay. I can't tell if I really do come off that way, because lots of folk will assume any contrary point is meant to be taken as you describe.

    I actually already told you how you're wrong, but then you've jumped onto other points or missed the ones I made. Maybe I put you in defense mode. Seems like it, to me. In any case, I'll get around to that post sometime

    I think it's possible that a businessman might have learned about it before it was discarded, and still thinks it's appropriate to use for all sorts of situations.

    If so, that might be an example of it being elevated to a pseudoscience. But who knows? Maybe it's just a conversation starter

    Now I'm curious

    I can tell ;)

    I assume the crowd revels in the massive diss, ooooohhhhhh

    ??

    I figured we were trying to come to a mutual understanding. Vying for votes was not the goal at all. But if you day so, seems this discussion is at an end?

    I didn't even bother reading your reply after you assumed I was being condescending.

    I was trying to answer your questions and give you a reason to look forward to pursuing your master's degree, dude.

    You'll answer these questions yourself, eventually, though I'm surprised you didn't during your bachelor's
