    Pulled this from a site that pulled it from somewhere else. It is from Personality Cafe so I won't link, but I can PM the link if you really want it.

    Things like this help b/c it is in reading them that I realize it is not just me, and there is a reason for the things I do and teh way I do them and the way things affect me. It makes it easier to accept what I can and fight against that which I cannot accept.

    That was really eye-opening, thanks.

    I never really grasped the major differences of Introverted and Extroverted Feeling. This really clears it up. However, there's one bit at the end of the paragraph that I think the writer is letting something that may be a false dichotomy get in the way of his thinking. (Maybe he's a T type who's letting his frustration at Fs get in the way of his objectivity.)

    If this is true, I can't be a F at all. I never stop thinking logically, but my feelings are often a part of the premises of my logical argument. Up until this final paragraph, I was pretty much pegged. I think, however, that the writer assumes what I think is a false dichotomy between emotion and logic. Logic, while a predictable and systematic thing, is not antithetical to emotion. In fact, at least from my perspective, it can be helped by a healthy understanding of emotion and, thus, the appropriate application of it.

    Having a closer picture of their own emotions, I would say that Introverted Feelers would have a different kind of command over logic than others precisely because of their ability to restrain and discern how their own feelings effect their rationality. I would expect the writer is a Thinker of some sort because they would want to classify one way of using logic as better as the other, and, being comparatively out of touch with their own feelings, classify the Introverted Thinker's method as lesser or not logical at all.

    That is a great point and I hope it doesn't discredit the entire entry. Thinking and feeling in fact go hand in hand always and irrationality has nothing to do with the differences between the two.

    Indeed, and logic exists because of emotion.

    I mean think about it: logic deals with reasoning in a systematic mode. As opposed to what? What even made this important to anyone to do in the first place?

    One without emotion has no need for reason because there is never anything to solve if you don't feel, systematically or otherwise. One could be a stone for all it matters.

    Well it's just the great illusion that people are so entirely different.

    We are all functionally individuated but not entirely separate or unlike each other. There is not one who thinks only and there is not one who feels only.

    A finger does nothing by itself, a palm does nothing by itself, and a wrist does nothing by itself. They can be individuated as parts, but must be a hand in order to work.

    Oh, wow. I didn't catch that. I'm sorry.

    It appeared on the top page and I neglected to check the dates, and am unaware of who the OP is.

    The original topic is vital, seems that most of the threads showcase subjective feelers demonstrating their objective thinking skills.
