    Democritus here! Haven’t learned to be ‘smiley’ yet, but working on it.

    I’ve always been enamoured with the thought of substance and it’s relationship to absence.

    Nice thread.

    Hey @Bri.ak ! Thanks for your nice comments about the thread :) I'm glad you enjoyed its content.

    You are not alone in enjoying the topic of substance and absence, I actually discussed this (indirectly) in a blog entry recently ^^ What makes you think you're Democritus specifically?

    I’m the definition of a sceptic.

    I see reality as transposed to us. We use absence to measure reality; cold is the absence of heat, color is what is rejected, not absorbed, dark is the absence of light, time isn’t gain, it’s loss through entropy.

    Focus on gaining knowledge above materialistic endeavors. Learning through experience of cultures.

    I think people are as stupid. I mock human behavior. I have a love for satire from it. I wish I could openly do it! The idiocy of ‘human nature’ is pretty slapstick.

    I have a misanthropic view of people and human nature in general, even though the functions and knowledge of diverse societies consume a large part of my mind. This creates a love/hate relationship with others.

    I was not born wealthy, hence my inability to laugh about people to their face.

    When I read this, I had an intense feeling of deja-vu.

    Like Global Five, Enneagram, and Socionics?

    The one thing about MBTI that drives me mad is Myers and Briggs views, and test, re the J/P preference. It has to do with categorization not organization.

    INFJs are more often not tidy than organized. Inferior Se makes them awful at it, actually, and it’s the bane of my existence. If only those chores were done, I could spend my time thinking and writing, like I was made to do.

    It thought it was said as a joke because deja vu is theorized to be the transposing of consciousness.

    That’s so cool! Thanks for telling me. Maybe it’s prophetic of great convos to come.

    I don't know, nobody has cared to philotype me yet... :( I asked, but it's possible that people are afraid that I'd start analysing their analysis ;)

    I feel closest to existential phenomenology, if that makes any sense. Very much not a skeptic, though I have sympathies for certain forms of skepticism. Here I think is a good description of what interests me the most in philosophy. The investigation into what it means "to exist".

    You know my stance on blabbering about things one doesn't know enough about yet. (For those who don't know, that stance is: STFU and inform yourself.)

    I think you might be slightly exaggerating the scholarly nature of my own philotyping. Most of it was just gut feeling ;)

    Apart from @Pin

    I'm not much of a philosopher, so I know I could not type you! I took a few courses in college and must say I dig existentialism. Looking into Maurice Blanchot, though. Thanks for the philotype.

    I'm jealous of HP for getting Chomsky! Love his stuff.

    I'll have to look into Deleuze as I'm not familiar with him.

    Re: Foucault - he's got a bit of a Yogi Berra vibe going on too. Separated at birth? They were around the same age. :tonguewink:

    Deleuze is pretty awesome @infinite dreams ! One of the most creative philosophers of the last 50 years. Check him out sometime :)

    Also I'm tagging @Reason With Logic Filling so he can enjoy this amazing Foucault-Berra comparison!
