Well MBTI is fun but if you try to break down cognitive functions — which is something that is inside your mind thus you’re the only one who can understand/feel the process — to superficial behaviors, or even set of acts that can be executed by everyone from every type, then it will be just another seemingly-scientific horoscope.

There might be correlation between neatness + punctuality and the preference of Thinking function, or altruism and Feeling function, but that doesn’t mean Thinking function is the cause of neatness and Feeling function is the cause of altruism. because correlation =/= causation.

Cara mengetahui (secara kasar) apakah seseorang menerima kritikan (tentang dirinya) dengan terbuka atau tidak: Cukup katakan, “Lho, kamu ini kan orangnya ga bisa menerima kritik dan masukan dari orang lain,” dan tunggu jawabannya.

Apabila ia tidak menjawab dan terlihat berpikir, atau diam lama dan kemudian bertanya, “benarkah?” atau terlihat ingin menyangkal tapi terdiam, atau bahkan menangis di pojokan sambil menggaruk-garuk tanah, ada kemungkinan bahwa orang tersebut bisa menerima kritik dengan terbuka atau setidaknya sering berusaha untuk menerima kritik dan saran dari orang lain (walaupun itu menyakitkan, hence, crying on the corner).

Apabila jawabannya, “Ah, nggak kok, aku bisa nerima kritik!” atau kalimat defensif lainnya, atau bahkan sangkalan yang tidak ada sangkut pautnya e.g mengungkit cara ngomong kamu yang menurutnya nyebelin atau ad hominem yang lain, ada kemungkinan bahwa orang tersebut tidak menerima kritik dengan terbuka (dan suka menyangkal). (Mungkin juga dia menangis, tapi alasannya tentu beda dengan poin sebelumnya.)

Tetapi bisa saja terbuka/tertutup terhadap kritik bukanlah watak semata, tetapi episode.

Tenang, selalu ada area abu-abu kok. Sudah disebutkan di atas, kan? Secara kasar. Jangan ditelan bulat-bulat, ini bukan jurnal ilmiah (yang bahkan juga tidak sebaiknya ditelan bulat-bulat).

Maybe we should conduct a research about the correlation between depression and religiousness. Or did some people confound depression with simply being depressed and ungrateful?

A research about strength of faith and affective/neurotic disorder would be interesting, I suppose.

This happened when I was in middle school. It isn’t particularly scary, but it still confuses me when I think about it now.

During the second trimester of my second year in middle school, I was sent to the emergency room with acute appendicitis. It was right before finals, so I remember things…

I don’t understand why it was tagged under ‘japanese horror’ because the story is sad instead of creepy

When Umar bin al-Khattab radi allahu `anhu (may God be pleased with him) was walking in the market, he passed by a man who was supplicating, “O Allah, make us of Your ‘few’ servants! O Allah make us of Your ‘few’ servants!”

So ‘Umar said to him, “Where did you get this du`a’ (supplication) from?”…

Well said. Do not jump into the bandwagon.
