To read the Bible, step outside your psychotype with standardized tests

Socket depth increases attention span, analytical focus, and lawfulness. A face and head that is taller than broad also contributes to an abstract and narrow perspective. This is a minority psychotype, one I suspect is more common among Anglos.

This causes a tendency to overly rigid narrowness when interpreting advanced texts, as I found when I began studying for standardized tests. I found that I was objectively wrong and had to broaden my perspective in a way that was unnatural to me.

I was out of touch with how the average person thinks. People of all psychotypes write complex texts, so interpreting them through the biases of a minority psychotype often leads to misreadings. Advanced texts often attempt to precisely convey a state of mind, and in so doing they expose us to neurodiversity.

With great effort, I objectively overcame this tendency to err, scoring a 99.9% on the GMAT's English section. The GMAT is recognized by the Triple 9 Society. I went on to teach graduate test prep for the Princeton Review. Therefore I know what I'm talking about. Most people cannot read and reason at a graduate level, and are unaware of their cognitive unreliability.

I was arrogant intellectually, and it had to be beaten out of me by objective irrefutable proofs of error. I was only willing to accept this correction from explanations in the answer keys. Before that, I went through my life mostly insisting on my perspective despite being wrong, because it was an intellectual blind spot. But standardized test answers must be lawsuit-proof.

Guess what? The modern psychotype doesn't exist in the Bible. The ability to step outside my psychotype in order to interpret an advanced text in light of its own mental state proved crucial to rejecting the false Biblical doctrines in which I was raised, and allowed me to develop a true understanding of the Bible. Therefore, in order to restore Western Civilization, men must first learn to read, and then read the Bible. In that order.

Before you trust someone to interpret the Bible for you, ask what his reading comprehension error rate is. If he doesn't know, doesn't that tell you enough? He isn't serious.
