Inherent Personality Traits

Here is an article that says that introverts and extraverts have quantifiable differences in the locus of brainwave activity. The long and short of it is that this supports the idea that personality traits are largely not voluntarily chosen but are are inherent and, in the case of introversion/extraversion, the differences are even observable in brainwave activity. With this understanding it should be evident that you cannot change an introvert into an extravert (or vice versa) and that at best you will be influencing someone to temporarily act against their nature (like taking a gay guy to a carpet-munching contest). At worst you’re going to piss off and alienate the subject of your intervention. So extraverts, please realize that different is not necessarily bad and that if some guy is sitting by himself at a bar it might be because he wants to and if some girl is at home drawing pictures rather than getting her hurr did in preparation for the sock hop that might be perfectly healthy as well.

We don’t need no education, we don’t need no thought control. No dark sarcasm in the claussroom, blah blah blah. HEY! EXTRAVERTS! LEAVE US INTROVERTS ALONE!!!

(it does not have quite the ring to it as the original Pink Floyd version but you all get the picture. goddamn bricks in the wall!)

    I can agree with that. I mean, if you’re a noob, you’re going to stay a noob, no matter what kind of epix you get. Likewise, if you’re 1337, you can be 1337 in greens and totally pwn up the purpled-out noobs for teh free HKs and shit.
