For a long time I’ve been absolutely convinced of the fact that the introverts have higher blood flow to the rearward parts of the brain during introspective periods. This is 180 degrees backward and incorrect– the blood flow is increased to the verbal thinky thinky parts: frontal, Broca’s, and hippocampus (H/T Nottuh for the correction).
I’d use this as an example of something I recently said to Koanic on the forum, to explain why the occipital style is less flexible when it comes to switching worldviews: “It’s because every time you make a tweak you have to compile the whole worldview again from scratch. This takes time, energy, and generally happens at the worst possible times. Best to avoid it unless absolutely necessary or during planned periods of repose (when refactoring becomes an energizing call to action, rather than unruly scope creep).”
So what I have here is a giant fundamental problem in my mental model of the brain due to a silly reading comprehension failure way back who knows when, and the responsible thing to do is read over everything I’ve previously written in order to root out the big errors for a big recompile.
Even the thought of this is exhausting, but then there’s that whole CONSCIENTIOUSNESS thing. Dammit.
