    Default T being better than F

    Hey
    I don't really know how to say it =X
    But it seems like many F think that being T is better than being F
    And that like they think that being T is in every way easier than being F and that they dont like being F.
    & if F was super nice friendly and T jerk that has no emotions, so Mrs. F would like to become Mrs. T...
    while the opposite does not happend? o.O


    Get it? o_O
    So am I a moron who has hallucinations or is it true?


    Note: Sorry about the big amount of "and like you know the thingy watermelon" . I'm jealous of whoever has writing skills.

    Note 2: this is not what i think, im happy to be a F xD
    T is not my cup of tea! Hahaha... o.o

    I use both T and F to make my decisions. What is the big deal?

    According to the somatotype guy, I've perfected my Ti to fake a good F.

    Einstein doesnt have anything on this discovery. Kneel before me. I'll teach you the way of balance.

    Yeah my writing skills suck too.. I doubt I can make you kneel.

    There is a big deal, MBTI is the "opium" of our people. We need simplistic labels to "make sense" of the world around us and affirm our superiority over others. Hence, we deduce that Thinker is the "logic function" and its better than Feeling because "it" makes better, more "rational" decisions. Similarly, we also deduce that Feeling is the "empath" function, and its better than Thinking because "it" is more "sensitive", "likable" and "insightful about people".

    In all cases, whatever functions we have, they all entail important skill sets that make us superior to people of other functions.

    Seriously, I'm tempted to read your book if you have a good answer to that. I don't like "folk typology" either.

    What makes you think there's any other kind? The only dichotomy that has been even remotely validated in experimental controls is the I/E, and that was done with rats in a pseudo-social facilitation study.

    Invoking a reference to N/S or F/T when describing a person may not be any different than invoking the name of Poseidon when describing what the weather is like. It may not go beyond heuristic and metaphor.

    I hear what you're saying, but.. umm.. Is there any reason why rats would be a good way to test any of this in the first place? They could just be limited to E/I themselves. I can't imagine there being an INFP or ESTJ rat. There *could* be people that come close though. Why not test on them?
