    Default What do you think of feelings?

    i think all feelings are inherently selfish.

    And why do you think of them the way you do?

    I just think all feelings are inherently made to prolong the survival of the individual in one way or another while thinking is responsible for finding solutions which benefit everyone.

    It would then be easy to assume T types as less selfish but no, the opposite holds true cause apparently when a function is first or secondary, it becomes complex and not that suited for its inherent purpose which comes better off in tertiary feelers where pure selfishness can be visible. Same way tertiary thinkers thinking comes off as pure selflessness.

    I dont love humanity because im a nice person, but because i do it makes me a nice person. But alas, even that is selfish, i love humanity cause this love benefits me in my emotional health and cause others are then more cooperative to my will.

    So to be true to my self, i must accept the self serving nature of all feelings. I think?
    healthiness is all about appreciating other peoples inferior function. its like the sore spot no one ever notices, but we desperately wish they did, and if you focus on doing that, youll have many friends. and also learn to appreciate your own inferior function, others wont find it stupid if you show them how cool it is.

    mistakes happen. expect them, and grow from them. look for them, and avoid them.

    What is your self? It's arbitrary. With art I believe you can imagine differnet and better selfs, connect your current feelings with them and have them serve an ideal that was produced independent of the feelings. Cultural evolution has produced perversion to our lives, because it has started to go faster than the normal evolution and so there's a gap which creates this horrible human condition, being trapped between god and animal. We are trapped between them, but we are not their fusion. We do not live in energy, yet. Animals maybe live in energy, their world is cut to the perfect harmony with senses, god's world is one wholeness.
    Popular culture is great because it's just this connection between identity and sound experience of rock n' roll or something like that.Well, maybe it champions wrong things, but it's a pretty powerful method of self-transformation. Of course, not consciously that's where it probably fails.
    Feelings are animalistic, that is clear. If you want to consciously develop yourself, it's good to know that feelings are animalistic but you can do these things by accident too. Many people probably do.
    what a rumination. possibly sorry for this.
