    The striving to understand, the lust for knowledge. The passion that a new concept can bring.

    I'm sure I'll think of more after I hit "reply."

    No, I don't think so. I think the yearning to understand is thinking.

    What, may I ask, is it for you? Perhaps I'm wrong.

    This is not a general tendency which I acknowledge.
    Being a 'T' means that I value objective data and logical systems in decision-making over feelings and values. This does not mean that I do not feel deeply about things, it's just that feelings are less likely to influence my judgement.

    My life inside and outside is pretty turbulent and intense. If one lives "strongly", he or she is not less likely to be a thinker imo.

    This thread is designed to have little to do with me personally.
    However people like me are probably most likely to notice this. (since we suck at subjectivity in general)

    This a pure feeling to me. Since in a way it is a wish.


    I mean there is no such a thing as 100% T but the closest you can get to this is learning just for the sake of learning and not feeling a joy or real enthusiasm.


    I will take a drastic example to show my point.


    You mother dies one day however you don't feel bad or good about it. You simply calculate how much the funeral will cost and how many people you should call and you go through this entire thing without getting excited about this whole thing.

    But even this is not 100 T% since where is still a wish for action of some sort. Which is subjective because there is no need to do anything with you dead mother. (even that approach is impractical)

    Well, okay, I understand that. But I am perfectly capable of making decisions without emotions hindering them. So I gather that is more what you are speaking of.

    So would you be getting the most out of life (to keep with your extreme example) by feeling the loss of your mother, (without getting "excited") and yet being able to make an unemotional decision regarding all the things you mentioned above?

    Well I would probably be sad that my mother died so all of this is probably just hypotetcal.


    But yes in a way this is boring existance. I can get somewhat emotional from time to time. But if I compare myself with a average feeler I think that I am missing something.

    If you are after emotional response

    I wasn't looking for an emotional response. But it makes me happy when people smile.

    I think that determination coupled with optimism results in fulfillment in life.
