    Oooh, nice I've been re-reading his journals lately. And I was recently given a book of his plays, which I'll start soon. But I've mostly been reading a lot of Pablo Neruda lately, don't know how I took so long to read him, but wow, his poetry is so beautiful.

    I hope you enjoy your new book!

    Thank you for the welcome. It's a real pleasure to be here. I've brought my opinions with me; where should I put them? Oh, I should have left them at home? Darn.

    There's no denying the extent of people's determinations especially when it comes to showing their ingenuity (or lack of it), even if what are exposed can make them more frail to criticisms. Or they just fall into this crowd psychology situations, where it's easy to be lured into the conversations when they see others, especially people they admire or people whom they want to get some acknowledgement from (or who haven't noticed their existences) know they are following their train of thoughts too.

    Your first line in your last paragraph is almost an overkill on your own type construction. :D

    It's acceptable to express indignation, that is your Fi lashing out your inner stance and value, which conveyed across rather eloquently by your Te in such a rational and logical manner. Tell me if I get these functions descriptions mixed up though.

    As for the banal irrational and out of context trinkets, yes, I agree that they are an eyesore if handed out gleefully within serious genuine seeking for help kind of threads. But there are threads which raise questions of morality and ethic, such as the current one, therefore I think it is just human nature for banal trinkets to surface especially when saying opinions directly and offensively can land the posters in the infraction radar, or worst ~ suspension and banned outright radar.

    What do you think?

    It's definitely a common phenomenon. Don't worry, you're not alone.

    Your first paragraph : no. Relationship status doesn't impact the quality or non-quality type of advice that can be proffered in threads like that. Even if you're single, who says you are not qualified to give your opinions with regards to threads which talk about, say, childcare, or how to ensure in-laws can feel right at home when staying overnight, etc etc. Another example, I don't live in America, but I have some knowledge about the lifestyles, people, culture, and more about America, hence (to some extent), I can expand my thoughts and opine on what I think do relate to the subjects being discussed, though I'll be quick to inject that i'm no American, nor am I living there currently, but only if I think it's necessary to impart that knowledge especially if the audience is comprised of new people, as opposed to people who already know where I come from.

    Having said that, I agree with the trinkets out of the cereal box metaphors that you mentioned. Trinkets, are sometimes akin to pandering (the fun banal ones sans relevance nor useful content), but the spikey ones with sharp edges meant to be openly 'ouch' once delivered can be perceived as heroic to those who just wish someone can step in and kick ass the thread starters, as they (the audience) rejoice at the latter event unfurling before their eyes.

    But then again, this is intjf where trinkets come in all shapes, sizes, colours, content/no-content, spiky or smooth, and oily or rough. They do have their own fans, and both of us...well, let us hold on tight to our 3D or 4D glasses, maneuvering our ways as we see fit.

    I think you might have offered similar constructive advice too if you had posted first before me.

    Okay, my cereal box trinkets just now were meant literally, like those sesame streets toys that Kellog's (if i'm not mistaken) did give away one time many years ago.

    But metaphorically, here goes. I agree with your sentiment. In certain context especially in instances where constructive answers that lead to the ultimate solutions, trinkets seem to offer one purpose only : entertainment value. But, if taken seriously, may lead to confusion on ones who aren't capable to weigh the cost/benefit analysis attached(or not attached) to such trinkets.

    But I won't call trinkets as definitely worthless or valueless. The entertainment or shock value they provide can sometimes add colours to the cereal box. But then again, depends on where the cereal boxes are placed on the supermarket shelves...top shelves or middle or bottom...Or within the bargain-soon-to-expire sections/baskets.

    So, I love literal trinkets, but split in the middle (depending on the contexts of the cereal box ingredients) when it comes to the metaphorical trinkets.

    Ps: thanks for stimulating my mind this early in the morning with this thought-provoking conversation theme.
