    And I think detached is as valuable to society as empathy.

    Well, your focus seems to be on lack of empathy. Te is good for moving things forward in a value-oriented way, but without reference to empathy; instead, the emphasis is on utility or order or whatever. So start a thread on jobs/pursuits/careers where empathy needs to take a back seat to other types of values. Something like that.

    In other words, it really just gets down to F vs. T. Not empathy vs. "psychopathy." The latter formulation makes Te sound like a psychological illness.

    The traits you quoted are very, dare I say, are very "alpha" (makes the sign of the cross lest I invoke The TG). Which might explain why some women really dig those "unsuccessful" psychos in prison and marry up etc. Remember Dahlmer's wife?
    "The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents... Some day the piecing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such terrifying vistas of reality, and of our frightful position therein, that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the light into the peace and safety of a new Dark Age.

    I'd be happy to have the F vs T discussion.

    Unfortunately I think many conflate Te with psychological illness.

    Lol. That makes it ideal fodder for a thread.

    Many introverted people have to deal with being called antisocial or sociopathic, even if they are feelers. Many thinkers as well. Unless they are charming or effusively positive and emotional or overtly social/sociable. Not just Te users. With Te users the accusation is usually asshole'ishness, being overly controlling/rigid/annoying, and maybe ruthlessness. I will agree that an extraverted Te user is more likely to seem like someone with this personality disorder than other types, unless they've developed their charm/softness.

    At the end of the day it's about how needy people can be, and about how they see anything outside the "normal" effusive behavior as a slight against them. Their first reaction is to always to make these accusations, to seek revenge, to retaliate, to attempt to eliminate a threat, or other forms of behavior that show them as the self-interested people they really are.

    Nice, nice, nice, nice, be nice, nice, nice, nice, nice.. that's what I've heard repeated my entire life. And that's how psychopaths get one over on these people. They are ruthless and broken on the inside, but the charm/niceness fools them all.
