Points of view I hold:
-Sherlock is non-neurotypical, and he is my Aspie hero.
-I am an intersectional feminist. I have issues with almost everything as a result, but I will analyse and call out. I've had overloads because my views conflict with what i love (e.g..Sherlock).
-I like personality typing, and think it's useful, if you do the cognitive functions.

Advice to the INTP: INFJ’s are like Golden Retrievers, they will repay you with loads of love and affection but you need to take them out once in a while, play with them, and look them in the eye and pay attention when they’re talking.

AN EXAMPLE OF AFRICAN MEDICAL SCIENCE. ILLUSTRATION OF AFRICAN DOCTORS IN 19TH CENTURY (1879) KAHARA,UGANDA PERFORMING A CAESARIAN SECTION. THIS OPERATION WAS UNKNOWN IN EUROPE AT THE TIME.
Africans were performing many advanced medical procedures long before they had been conceived in Europe this is just one of many examples.
The British traveler R.W. Felkin who reported this noted that the healer used banana wine to semi-intoxicate the woman and to cleanse his hands and her abdomen prior to surgery. He used a midline incision and applied cautery to minimize hemorrhaging. He massaged the uterus to make it contract but did not suture it; the abdominal wound was pinned with iron needles and dressed with a paste prepared from roots. The patient recovered well, and Felkin concluded that this technique was well-developed and had clearly been employed for a long time. Similar reports come from Rwanda, where botanical preparations were also used to anesthetize the patient and promote wound healing.
