"In his keynote address at the recent APTi conference in San Francisco, Dario received spontaneous applause at a point that had to do with scientific verification of brain patterns that could be associated with Jungian types. That suggested to me some kind of ideological relief more than research appreciation, and he appeared a little uneasy at that point. People liking one map to the exclusion of others, I suppose.
The plausibility of an idea rests on more than the success or failure of particular research. In fact, Dario averred that if he hadn’t known what he was looking for, he might never have found it: he needed to know about type in order to look for evidence of type interactions. That might be worrisome to some scientists, but it also suggests that many results in research can be the consequence of method."
