INTPness vs ENTJness

Me on aggressive life action in the face of uncertainty:
The "most tenuous probabilistic associations" can & SHOULD produce ACTIONS that seem-to-imply absolute certainties...for the simple reason that actions are often binary (by the nature of the physical universe, there's often no way to interact safely with only the safer parts of someone's psyche, for one). Breaking up with a girlfriend doesn't mean that you hate her, or even that you're nearly certain you're making the right choice...just that you're at least 55% certain (say) that it's what you need to do!
I like the whole thread.
