I thought this was pretty interesting: Keirsey's son's rankings of priorities according to each temperament
Rational = NT
Idealist = NF
Guardian = SJ
Artisan = SP
This means that as an Artisan, my first priority is my circle of friends. I find that to be very true. Having friends about my age range with similar interests and lifestyles is the most important thing to me. Having rapport and interaction with them is a need, not just a want. I'll do pretty much anything for them. Family is next because what I value more than anything are people I can know personally and have relevance to my life. I let those mold my idea of who I am because I'm more likely to just fall into the flow of the group dynamic. Lastly I do care about worldwide dynamics but only as they affect people and especially those I can personally have interaction with. I care about what happens in the world but it's not a priority to try to do something about what I'll probably have little effect on.To simplify, and as an initial guess -- the problem is one has to represent the concept in abstraction (which makes little sense).
Most Rationals would say: I rank MY individual, MY world, MY family, MY community.
Most Idealists would say: I rank MY world, MY family, MY individual, MY community.
Most Guardians would say: I rank MY family, MY community, MY individual, MY world.
Most Artisans would say: I rank MY community, MY family, MY individual, MY world.
In other words,
MY INDIVIDUAL might be what the person believes the individual is inherently = the model of the individual's self interest. (THE INDIVIDUAL and the IMPORTANCE OF THE INDIVIDUAL)
MY FAMILY might be what the person believes is the importance of his family and his model of the family. (THE FAMILY and the IMPORTANCE OF THE FAMILY)
MY COMMUNITY might be what the person believes is the importance of his cohort and his model of his cohort. (MY TEAM and the IMPORTANCE OF THE TEAM)
MY WORLD might be what the person believes is how the world works. (Political, Economic, Military, Physics Religions)
So, do you Idealists consider what happens on a global scale (I guess a sense of global community) to be the most important?
Do you Rationals consider the importance of individuality to be the greatest?
Do you Guardians think that family is the most important thing there is?
