    A Stone Heart and an Achilles Heel are using different muscles. It just looks like sentiment is coming from the same place. It's not.

    Reminds me of that saying, "The kindest hearts produce the greatest cruelty".

    Not sure where that saying came from though

    *edit*

    I remember now where I first read it, it was in the book, "Wizard's First Rule" but Terry Goodkind. Good book, though I sorely doubt he came up with it.

    The worst mistake people make in political arguments is assuming that the other side is not trying to do the right thing. This simple oversight makes productive conversation nearly impossible.

    It depends on how you mean sensitive. Some people are very sensitive to others and are not callous, but others are indeed very sensitive and are often overly sensitive and they tend to be the most callous and crass people I come across as they take a slight or perceived attack or whatever, times what it really is ten-fold, and feel justified in behaving cruelly and callously to the 'offender' in a way far, far more severe and hurtful than what was ever actually done to them.

    I would say I can be overly-sensitive, though I don't really fall into the callous behavior unless, ironically, one of those overly-sensitive people perceive me as malicious or try to hurt me when they thought I hurt them. I usually overlook it but eventually when this happens so much from one person where I figure out that they are sensitive but are reactionary, I play the hypocrite and deliberately hurt them back until they learn to get lost and leave me alone. But I have been hurt the most by these people. I hate them when I run across them, especially when I thought they were so nice, too. = /

    It looks like this topic refers to people who are so sensitive, that the worse things in life wear on them the more easily, therefore making them callous more quickly than anyone else. In hypothesis, some if not a good deal of logical people simply adapt logic as a personal policy because we can't handle our own feelings, not unlike Vulcans. Conversely, those of us who do that don't appear to have Pon Farr.
    INTP,
    Neutral Good/Lawful Good even split. 5w4 sp/sx melancholic/supine, even split. Yes, I stole this method of placement from black cat.

    Perhaps it is the sensitive people who know how to make the most cutting remarks and actions. They know what hurts, and they're called callous. I've been called callous before, but I'm not like that at all - I just have quite eccentric and extreme political views.

    These were exactly my original thoughts but it's quite interesting to see what others think.

    On a side note, I was noticing how there were a lot of F's on here and irl who seemed really forceful with their T side that it came off completely unnatural like they had something to prove and/or hide.
