  1. Looking down upon artistry is quite an American thing. Art has great popularity in Europe, especially Germany. Anyway, artists are considered undisciplined, lacking work ethic, and mostly artists are fully occupied by their senses, menial tinkering until luck intervenes and something perfect unfolds, instead of swiftly engaging in a master plan. This mentality isn't efficient, not powerful, not beneficial. It is no coincidence that artists (not performers) often die in poverty. The word "art" stems from "ars", which means "to join", "to support" hence art is reduced to insignificance, to a peasantly endeavor. You may also notice that "ars" is phonetically identical to the British slang "arse". The fact that "art" is often phrased "the arts" doesn't help either, it overstates art as an established practice, so it negates. Art has no substance or fraternity, art is whatever individual artists do, not what art guides artists to do.
  2. I'm suggesting that INTJ Forum has a reverse understand of S/N; productive "realistic" sensor and lingering "awkward" intuitor. Why an unresourceful personality like a sensor could be productive, that's beyond me. Productivity doesn't equate to repetition and mastery of a particular interest — this is certainly a state of depression. Productivity is to remain busy, inspired and well-tempered — all of this takes an intuitor. Intuition is to steadily transcend into complete awareness, instead of pursuing the ultimate kill within the immediate possibilities. By these definitions intuitive carries many similarities to perceiving, like sensing is similar to judging. Unlike the contemporary descriptions of MBTI; SJ are the relentless types, incapable of settling. See the contradition, apparently sensors cannot settle. However, intuitors, previously considered subversive creatures, are perfectly able to settle.
  3. Sensors are not efficient to implement anything because they're occupied with details, so they accomplish close to nothing, but once they do they capture the essence of something; like Steve Jobs is often attributed for capturing the PC. Whatever he accomplished after that; nothing I'm pretty sure—the PC was his manifest. Unlike intuitors, a sensor may carry one astonishing idea, but once that idea exposes, the sensor burns out and remains an idle automaton. Intuitors can work freely, no ideals or necessities; they improve as they go like children.
  4. Clearly I am too sharp, stern and reinforcing to be associated with a clique of soft-boiled intuitive lapdogs. I'm trying to solve a misconception about the S/N dichotomy, where it is stated that intuitors are enabled by creativity and pattern recognition while sensors are enabled instinct and convention. All false. What really distincts an intuitor from a sensor is the ability to manage. Sensors are concentrated and task-oriented, absorbed in the theory of operation rather than actual operation. In contrary, intuitors are volatile, able to connect the dots and find the quickest way to a solution because they're not restrained to a specialism. The difference in S/N lies in aperture, identified as "openness" by Big 5. Reading my posts so far, my openness is close to zero—I've been writing this post while completely isolated in a specialism for words and grammar, instead of connecting the dots and making sense. My fixation is a perfect example of sensing. By my definition, ironically intuitors are more suited for praxis than sensors. Intuitors are so well-suited for praxis that they never reach a perfect implementation, instead covering one mishappen with another.
  5. Assuming that the greatest value is always 544320, you could allocate an int32 array with a length of (544320/32)+1. To determine if a value is set, use something like this: bool Check(int[] array, int position) { return (array[position / 32] & (1 << (position % 32)) != 0); }
  6. Monte's program also yields 3323/2578. I don't understand why me and Doob arrive at 671, especially because Doob addresses the right problem.
  7. Changing yourself may backfire, like ending in a psychiatric ward, trapped with yourself hence feeding your intuition, as you are destined to do. Intuition is your armor against foul emotion and self-disgust. Suffocating your intuition is very counter-intuitive.
  8. Your story gives me an ISTP impression. What is remarkable about INTJ is; they can function without being battered. Its the environment that needs their kicks, and reaches out to the INTJ. The association of words like "INTJ", "family" and "militia"; very, very wrong. This cauldron of tribal emotions belongs in the sensing domain, especially SJs are tenacious ones.
  9. ISFJ Intuitors have the impossible ability to be depressed AND be completely satisfied with themselves, apparently your friend can't do this—instead craving to make sense of the world, hence a sensor, particularly an introverted sensor. Note that ISFJ is the borderline-intuitive type. ISFJs seem able to read between the lines, but in a very reinforced manner. When ISFJs get tired they degenerate into excess rationalization, trying to make everything "fair" while it clearly isn't, pretending to grasp the "big picture".
  10. This algorithm generates quite violent patterns. I wonder if there are applications in cryptography, similarly to prime numbers which also have utterly unpredictable signatures. Managed to generate a better graph using {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6}. This one looks more like the Burj Khalifa than the Taj Mahal.
  11. I used {2, 3, 5, 6, 9} as input. {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9} raised an "OutOfMemory" exception.

  12. The Netherlands faces a similar situation; either decrepit housing or very expensive housing, and little in-between. At least 1 out of 5 people between age 15-25 is unemployed, many relying on social security. Still there is plenty of work available, like stocking supermarkets, ensuring that wealthy boomers can stuff their mouths day-in-and-out, instead of investing in renewal. There are white collar jobs too, superficial and imitative of American culture, anything for a quick buck, getting overworked doing complete bullshit. These times are very demoralizing for the youth, which is exactly what empowered every tyrant in history.
  13. INFJ is a token of generosity, of youth and novel character. An INFJ is a potion of resurrection, and everyone wants some. INFJ's life in a nutshell: 1. Suckers lining up to be "serviceable" to the majestic INFJ king/queen. 2. INFJ delivers 3. Other party doesn't deliver. 4. INFJ feels cheated, but doesn't learn a thing. 5. Repeat. The existential feat of INFJ; to have the life sucked out of you, for nothing. INTJ is slightly better off, usually has enough backbone to get a job and be independent.
  14. Toxicity is another word for "complexion". Beauty lies in simplicity. Every advancement detracts from simplicity and makes people less happy. Not only do humans die individually, but with each generation humanity is dying as a whole. This theme is explained in Genesis where initially Adam and Eve were innocent, but curiosity caught up (illustrated by the snake). Adam and Eve subjected themselves to a needless luxury (the fruit) and sabotaged their youth. Genesis narrates the inevitability of picking up new baggage— imposed by the environment. Tesla's "view" on Eugenics:
  15. This diagram narrates your entire life, most notably adulthood because that's where your walls start cracking. The more you consume, the more sick you become. Nothing is really good for you, this post is neither, but once you gather experience by consuming, then you learn what is least harmful for you.
