A Disturbance in the Force
Black Swan said:The same for me, though I haven't finished the book yet either. What I've noticed is he gives you all sorts of 'tests' and then tells you, with what I would call misplaced certainty, what your results were.
I don't think it's misplaced certainty. I think that these are the results for the vast majority of human beings. Just because you may not answer that way does not mean that most people don't, as his research has indicated. Also, even when I answered differently, which was most of the time, I definitely understood how and why most people would answer the way he is indicating, so I think you might be off a bit.

I don't see any evidence that the above is the case. I don't think he ignores anyone. He even states that people who answer differently are merely what he calls 'more engaged' - but make no mistake, the vast majority of people are not (and even 'vast majority' is an understatement)!
