Thanks so much teatime. I couldn't agree more, and I actually am trying to tap into how leadership is more in my blood than I even thought. This is something that is evolving largely since we started this discussion (and you got me already checking out leadership books so that I can really tap into this)! I need to keep going on this theme!
And on that note, I made a new video today about how I am reinterpreting the Edar myth from a more constructive lens:
I love this, Mike! I love how you see where this can go not just for you and the Edar myth but for Americans today.
God, what a great distinction between Ne and the myth of potential and Te's myth of greatness. ALREADY BEING great! I think an important part of Te is actually putting aside the Ji ego and living one's calling. "Pulling yourself by your bootstraps" like you said is a great way for a leader to model life to people. By life I mean the powerful forces of the life (Fi) within us.
(P.S. You know how Civil War reenactments are a thing? And covers bands are a thing. Is there such a thing as political impersonators? Especially on the East Cost. Wouldn't it be awesome if there were mock debates for the purpose of making people think? You could *totally* play Gore! Sorry, sorry, I got all Ne. That would just be so much fun, even if it's not realistic. )
