I suspect North Korea, Pyongyang in particular, will overtake Macau here very soon as the gambling center of asia…. heck, of earth. I also suspect North Korea will become the US' top arms competitor.

It makes alot of sense.…..a-18865891


He's been stuck on the bottom, weak and completely powerless, at the mercy of his father's whims and didn't even think he had a solid shot until recently of getting control, and now he has control- he's gotta be similar to his brothers in wanting to just lead a good life, and doesn't see why he's gotta be a total prick to everyone in order to have it. He'll still be a prick in the time being, but not as much of one, as suspect within 20 years the prison camps will be open up to tourism as well.


Easiest way to get a hereditary military caste off your back is to make them rich and distracted with toys, while maintaining their high status and esteem and tough guy look. This can be done so easily by letting the caste run amok with the gambling capacity Pyongyang has. It has a basic tourism industry that heavily favors the absudities of the tourist over the locals in all things save driving (those sexy traffic guards will nail anyone), a awesome design for a hotel taken seemingly from Las Vegas…. though it's amenities certainly needs upgraded from what I've seen on youtube…. but gambling funds will allow that to flow fast.


The other way is to put emphasis on the weapons industry…. which is all North Korea is competent in. Than and digging complex tunnel systems, which is hard to export. They have basic electronics, but outside of military radios that can currently be bought legally (and who would want to), no one wants their electronics. Thier ships float, as well as their mobile drydocks, but it's easier to buy parts for such things from other countries. Thier chain and small tool industry was innovative, and certainly Germany profited from it when they did it, as well as China…. as well as africa is now…. basically, we got a global market glut there. But everyone likes the boomsticks, and once North Korea can sell it's rifles, tanks, hovercrafts and artillery and anti-aircraft systems, it's all going to flow in for them. Many countries need top of the line weaponry designed to slow down NATO style weaponry, and they have it.

Easiest way for him to do this is to systemmatically get rid of the old guard that keeps the embargo inplace. We saw what he originall wanted… the embargo lifted, but politically was stuck following the militaries desires. Their corrupt but unified in their corruption. They don't feel secure enough to change the system yet. They think they need to starve everyone and imprison everyone, because that's how it was done in the past, and if it's not broke, don't fix it.

Only way out is to follow international pressure just enough for international sales to be lifted, to individually win over top commanders and the middle ranks with financial opprotunities, while feeding his people a little more, a little more, a little more…. making them see things are getting better and that they are entering into the good times…. and in return, he'll get grants, girfts, and loan after loan after loan, pent up for over 60 years of economic repression flowing into North Korea.

This alone is going to glue the people to him, they will become more fanatical than ever before once they see things are getting better, that he's triumphing over capitalism by tricking them into wasting their money gambling, benifiting them, enlarging selection in the stores, employing people on ever more varied scales.


I see alot of Perceiver in these little acts. The caution and slow experimentation, seeing what works and doesn't, and slowly moving towards the ends of least resistence. I can see him sitting in his office spinning a globe, tracing the line of flight and sail between the cities of the world.


What I don't see is huge south korean tour buses heading north over the DMV unless their on their own convoy and are largely secluded, or flown in with limitations on movement. He knows what happened to the soviet union, and the shock China's in right now, and knows his population is much smaller, and already is fully repressed. Any growth in opposition will be remarkably hard to check as…. well, they're doing the best they can at it currently, and if a opposition does take root, it's gonna be pretty hardy.


Can't wait for his international whistlestop tour. He can visit Fidel, Hugo if he's still alive, and…. Mugabe…. and…. yeah. The list isn't all that impressive. He's definately looking at that globe trying to figure this one out. If we know anything about the current Kims, it's that they want to leave. No point being in charge if you yourself are a prisoner. Not so much lose power as rather to get away and live like a normal rich family does.

His wife is cute, like a Jackie Kennedy to North Korea.


So- via her, do you have enough to type him yet, given your relationship background in psychology?

    Interesting history of eyeliner. Also, agreed about the sunscreen (and blush, I never have understood the purpose). Cosmetic and fashion companies have good control over people. Some are even taking advantage of the semi-recent emotional crisis of how made up, airbrushed models used for advertising place unrealistic expectations on young girls.

    I’m pretty much a baby in this theory; much reading in both Lane’s and Lorin’s texts is to be done. But for what its worth, I too noticed the differences in their writing styles and how they approached the topic and noticed how Lane goes more for the big picture. I’m a Perceiver person and really enjoy reading Lorin’s texts, I can actually relate when he makes comments like “As a Perceiver person…” Something will lead me to think about something else and how it applies, and sure enough if I keep reading, Lorin will cover what I was questioning. My Teacher person friends seem to prefer Lane’s texts though.

    I feel a little self conscience and relieved to reveal my cognitive style…would love to get a smile, recognization, appreciation, acceptence when greatful. As seen in a myrid of ways by other(s)~ their allocated traits + (plus) xp (experience) = exposition eg. self ~ NOTE…and note unto self My spelling is phonetic, at best…lousy drives me uP the wall, however I can spend and have hours on one sentance, a paragraph can get nowhere and I give…uP…exhausted with/in my effort to express myself verbally ( yet in type ) can cause me to back up truncation into non-existance expressions of what I … for lack of a better word /or not coming to mind… am…my way…of getting there. Lorin, I have forgotton my orgin of thought which caused this post, however in a round-a-bout way I am asking that you make a note that…I have awaited this forum. The reveal of the/ this theory should have NEVER been limited to the faulacity of your higher learning institution. Rather left exposed to humanity, with s response portal, to the whole…of humanity. For I have spoken/inquired of your findings b4 (deal with SOME short cuts of expression) finding your reality of facts and understanding, I was very frank with you upon my initial reading of the mercy room when I expressed to you ( in e-mails maybe long un accessed or deleated…and I’m pretty close to quoting myself…HOW do YOU know of this place??…a place I can find my emotions LOST in if it weren’t for TEACHER emotions and PERCIEVER facts, leading me into (ya, strange) Server actions which lean into the uncomfortable…and again THX, your …http// I printed 1/18/2006 has valadated my perception of this realm. Tis’ a cool thing and a great gift. Thank you

      Hi. Over the years I have found that Mercy persons often really appreciate this material because they realize that it is OK to be a Mercy person. The inhuman technological world may shut down Mercy feelings, but these emotions are legitimate.
      I just spent eight years in South Korea. People there are not as emotionally split there as we are here in North America. Business and family go together there.

    I was on the website with Hatchback- he was one of the ones who plucked us innocents off the MBTI forums. Either he or CBeck informed me I was a contributor, and apparently from the old material made it sound really cool and elite…. but it started getting on everyone’s nerves, and everyone started preying viciously on one another, mimicking the worst traits inherent in the idealization of the type. The facilitators became fascist, the teachers douchebags, perceivers contrarily douchebags, and contributors the archetypal aquarian destroyers….. and mercy just came out gypsy weird…. and easily toyed with.

    That site died once the seriphot came up…. and the dawning realization of how close the similarities.

    This being said…. after the dust has settled, may be a future in the system- largely because I still use it, as well as the seriphot, as quick shorthand symbols for ideas I have to note the beginning and end and sudden arrival of certain kinds of thought, so I can go back and try to trace back the mechanics of it. Sometimes helpful, sometimes not, but would be hypocritical of me to completely disregard it if I use it in part…. so I back it partly. I still recommend the videos to people if I have to get them up to speed real quick for psychology…. but I note everything I need them for isn’t really listed. Such as how each type dreams. I’ve noticed it differs…. also meditation- such as sitting meditation- differs substantially for a INTJ Contributor than for a Mercy or Facilitator, as my eyesight changes substantially in passive as well as active response to just sitting and stairing… I get shapes and sinewave patterns bouncing around from doing nothing distracting me, while others see nothing but a wall in front of them…. if I shift my thinking pattern, it shifts as well, or goes away completely. That’s what sent the warning signals off in my head to look into varient mediation tecniques, as Zen clearly isn’t designed for a Contributor persay, but better for a facilitator- hence the big Enzo loop. I see these issues everywhere, across religions…. I can apply some of it here to the differation of the cognitive styles, but it becomes ify at times. Some systems don’t easily stick…. such as dualistic tibetian mandalas. Yes…. I can imagine lorn sitting down doing a graph of a mandala and how everything would intergrate…. but time after time after time having to do the work over an over by hand makes it suspicious the theory itself is missing something fundamental that the mandalas themselves are teasing out, the the koans are, that the mantras are, prayers are, the walking philosophical discussions are, etc. Something Nietzsche grasped but failed to reach. A need for a overman mentality…. but in each system it’s not within the type itself…. it’s a transference to another style, or hodgepodge of them, as well as intergration in greater depth of a particular style. This seems a bit beyond what Hatchback and CBeck exposed us to, and I have yet to see it on mental symmetry…. though I am admittedly lack luster in searching through everything still. I’ll take my time. I have more gripes than pleasantries, but still am capable of pleasantries, so I’ll say hello to Hatchback.

    I will also say I can’t tell the difference between any writer’s writing style on the site…. looks the same to me unless I see the name titled.

    I am also perplexed as to why crabs have personality types. Why? I own three, each a predictable type…. but they don’t show signs of social organization in eating or sleeping someplace…. but they are as complex as baboons at times. Why? Their brains can’t be too similar to ours, much different evolutionary history, yet….

    I tried to reply to the forum to a topic about left-hemisphere and right-hemisphere Facilitators. but it didn’t work so I decided to put my post here:

    I remember in childhood I loved ‘wisdom’ and thought of angels a lot. I “felt” the presence of angels many times and wondered if I was an angel myself somehow. Maybe wisdom personified as an angel to me. Then came the uncertainty and in the end hijacking the cortex and sensation-seeking.

    I’m now trying to “light up” natural conscience again but I have started to feel extremely guilty. I cannot “atone for my sins” without P-strategy working but when it’s working and leading I feel like I’ve killed someone. I have no idea where to start because I did a lot of immoral things while in the “sleep” that I don’t even remember. I feel I’m pinned down here and sometimes wonder if I’m just delusional.
    What should I do?
