Hmmm, perhaps there is another term besides introvert/extrovert.
I always come out on the introverted side on that test, INTP, but
I also figure that if we manage uploading, every memory and perhaps
every thought one ever had could be examined by someone, perhaps
everyone. In that case, excess dedication to privacy could cause one
to reject the notion of uploading, resulting in their every thought and deed
to perish at the end of their short earthly existence. Similarly, there are
many potential rocket scientists who refuse to take the tests required
for clearances because they cant get past the whole idea of confessing
every single naughty thing they ever did. There are plenty of really
good, interesting, funny autobiographies that were never written, for
all the same reasons. I say to hell with privacy (my own, not other
people's). Dont flinch, dont blush, live open, upload, share the files
with anyone who cares to read them. spike
