Transhumanism has a rational basis, but it also requires a strong imaginative ability to shift perspective away from internal concerns to discuss the broad scope of human evolution into posthumanity. I would expect to find a lot of persons who combine both rational and creative aspects.

All that has been illustrated (not yet proven) by this data is that NT types tend to congregate on internet listserves. That might actually have some implications for issues related to computer mediated communication, but I don't know if that necessarily relates to transhumanism.
