“Since NTs are naturally disinterested in tradition and custom, it should be no surprise that they readily abandon the customary for the workable.”
David Keirsey, Please Understand Me II: Temperament, Character, Intelligence

“Rationals demand so much achievement from themselves that they often have trouble measuring up to their own standards. NTs typically believe that what they do is not good enough, and are frequently haunted by a sense of teetering on the edge of failure. This time their achievement will not be adequate. This time their skill will not be great enough. This time, in all probability, failure is at hand. Making matters worse, Rationals tend to ratchet up their standards of achievement, setting the bar at the level of their greatest success, so that anything less than their best is judged as mediocre. The hard-won triumph becomes the new standard of what is merely acceptable, and ordinary achievements are now viewed as falling short of the mark. NTs never give themselves a break from this escalating level of achievement, and so constant self-doubt and a niggling sense of impending failure are their lot.”
David Keirsey, Please Understand Me II: Temperament, Character, Intelligence

“To be useful, learning must have a worthy purpose and become a habit. A trip down this road starts with the questions “Why?” “How?” and “What?”—the major interrogatives in the English language. A wise person asks these questions virtually without thinking; a wise teacher guides his students to acquire the habit of asking them.”
Ted Sizer, The New American High School

“the evidence is there. Thought control is, to a free people, a cardinal sin. It is dangerous because focused propaganda can be effective. This is why the best teachers insist on a broad range of learning, most especially including skepticism. We must teach our students to use caution when they are exposed to ideologies that have followers whose enthusiasm clouds their judgment.”
Ted Sizer, The New American High School

“As long as we see ourselves as rational beings who can think logically and make carefully reasoned decisions about our daily lives, then education indeed should be about the promotion of reasoned deliberation and the gaining of knowledge that will enhance our ability to reason. But suppose this conception we have of ourselves and our ability to reason logically is simply wrong?”
Roger Schank, Teaching Minds: How Cognitive Science Can Save Our Schools
