When I was little,I would always ignore things that my mom told me of what I "should" do.But most of of the time,I wonder why people tend to follow the traditional steps?Is it safe and secured?Or is it respectable when certain culture took matters in a way they see fit;maybe that is what they do all along and it shall be done like this all the time?Ahh,if only I understood the meaning behind people's brain and behaviour works,things will be easier when I try blending into society.
But no,the more I learn of people,their habitual orthodox ways somehow frightened me.They are willing to defend their believes and views,isolating the minorities that has different opinions.Unevitably,the majority shuns the minority and eventually getting shoved out.The only hope left is to find people slightly resembles or willing to put up with you so you can manage without shutting away your social life.
Yeah,life can be pretty lonely when nobody mentally(or even intellectually) understands you.

If somebody asks me, "If everyone else jumps off a bridge, would you?" I won't immediately try to contradict authority, because the question in my head arises as to why they're jumping off the bridge. Perhaps it's a low fall, but the bridge is about to be crossed by stampeding rhinoceroses. In which case I would jump. Or, if they just died, of course I wouldn't. The thing is, the belief of the majority means nothing to me. I don't directly oppose it, nor do I directly follow it. What is objectively right is completely unrelated to the beliefs of others, their numbers completely irrelevant. That being said, I don't have any problem opposing the majority if they are indeed wrong. I suppose this complete indifference is what marks us as potentially rebellious.

I saw a post somewhere that related MBTI types to the Alignment Test, and it said that INTPs supposedly tend to be chaotic neutrals. Although I don't really see myself as a particularly 'chaotic' person, I do believe in neutrality and above all, objective and non-biased analysis.

religion allows billions of people to believe in things that no man could believe on their own

It is ignorance to refuse to change ideas, beliefs, or facts when they are proven wrong, immoral, or outdated

I agree completely! In terms of my religious beliefs, I don't consider myself to be an atheist, rather agnostic, because it hasn't been proven either way that there is some sort of god or higher being or whatever you want to call it. I'm agnostic because if there one day there is proof of some god, I would most likely accept it, because what I believe in is logic and evidence. Atheism seems a bit extreme seeing as there's no evidence of it NOT existing, but on the other hand, there's no evidence that it does. Therefore if and when any evidence comes along and proves either side, that is what I will put my faith into.

"When I was little..." - rather than ignoring, I responded to my moms "this is not the way things are done" with "I just did, this means things ARE done this way".
