Arguments from authority carry little weight—“authorities”have made mistakes in the past. They will do so again in the future. Perhaps a better way to say it is that there are no authorities; at most, there are experts. Always ask whether the hypothesis can be falsified.

Scientific consensus and arguments from authority

Scientific consensus and arguments from authority

As an authority figure, don't expect an INTJ to respect what you say just because you say it. - INTJs bow only to one authority: rationality.
