    It's due to a lack of emotional intelligence, that this downward spiral occurs. To be released from this state, an effort must be made, and to the type of person who feels no need to change..this is nearly impossible. It's best not to help these people. They need to help themselves.

    It's such a paradox.

    It always seems like when I'm trying to be the nicest I hurt people the most. I am super sensitive sometimes but honestly I can also be extremely callous.

    What does it mean to be callous? I can imagine people becoming callous through great abuse and maybe even sociopaths and psychopaths being considered callous, but I'm not sure how I would imagine that in someone in real life.

    Also, I just want to say, in case someone misinterprets, not showing any emotion is different from not actually feeling any. And the definition of the word only includes not feeling any emotion to be callous. So what are we/you/whomever considering callous? I think people who are good with Fe have an advantage in life, but I don't equate callousness with lack of Fe, but with lack of Fi, if functions are desired to use in the discussion.

    But callousness is not neccesarily something bad at all, i find that it allows me to make proper value judgement's in different context's.
    Well, I think that is the general connotation of the word. Calloused = hardened, in a bad way. But I don't think bad experiences, disillusionment, disappointment must necessarily harden us in a way that impedes future growth. They can give us strength and courage, if we let them, like you say, and if they are not soooo overwhelming that they damage us permanently. Can we be damaged permanently? I don't know. I certainly have never experienced anything that would damage me permanently, but I definitely don't want to rule out the experiences of other people (torture victims or something really extreme and horrific like that).

    I have had experiences which have altered me permanently, but I always at least try to keep myself open...

    I find that people are usually un-receiving of certain viewpoints cuz they are fail to take all the factors into account.

    that or yeah, they are immature. immature in the sense that they give up in spite of the fact that only they have the power to change themselves

    I think the causal relationship works like this: the probability of being very sensitive given that you're callous are near 1, but the probability of being callous given that you're really sensitive isn't significantly different from the probability of being nice.
