This is a game to show how Thinking and Feeling can arrive at the same decisions, although how the decision is made can be very different. If you are not sure if you prefer Thinking or Feeling, you may find value in observing people with different judging preferences walk through their reasoning.
The problem/decision sets are limited to increase the chance that you will see both a Thinking and a Feeling response.
- Active Players (people who are sure of your judging preference and are comfortable sharing)
- The Chorus (people who are unsure of your judging preference or who would simply prefer not to be an active player)
- Choose one of the problem/decision sets below.
- Show how you use your preferred judging process to reach the described decision.
Rules for Active Players:
In your post:
- Identify which problem/decision set you chose.
- Identify your Type, if it's not included in your profile.
- Show the decision-making process using your judging function. This could be the inner dialog you use to arrive at a decision.
- Keep the decision-making descriptions brief but clear, so the reasoning can be easily seen.
Rules for the Chorus:
Please let a few active players post before joining the discussion. After that, you’re welcome to comment and ask questions.
Problem/Decision Sets (choose one set only):
- The Exam: You don't feel like you studied enough for your final exam. You must pass, or you have to retake the class. You're in your desk in class and you see a classmate's notebook open on the floor.You decide not to cheat.
- The Project: You're a team lead on a very visible project at work. One of your team members has started turning in work late, which is causing delays. This team member is caring for his elderly parent who has become ill. This team member is the expert in his area, but he has an inexperienced assistant who has offered to fill in. Your boss keeps asking for updates.You decide to replace the expert with the assistant.
- The Car: You need to buy a new car. You can afford either a conventional gas car that gets 28 mpg or diesel car that gets 50 mpg but will create three times the amount of air pollution. Both cars are the same otherwise (same size, age, wear, cost, etc).You decide to purchase the conventional gas car.
- Laid-off: You've been laid-off due to a merger. You are not sure when you will find another job as you live in an economically-depressed area. While you are running errands, some obviously poor kids ask you for $20.You decide to give the money to them.
