    I think it just makes them mad. Angry. Angry at being a part of a group of which a blanket insult was issued.

    Doesn't make him wrong. Just makes him a jerk. Which is what an Fier would get all up in a tizzy about.
    God, I never thought I'd agree with you (:eek but I do.

    Chill babies. I mean the aspie spumante is just expressing his sadness.

    It doesn't really work that way...

    That's like trying to find darkmatter by saying 'well nothing else is there...'

    Faulty. Sorry.



    As to the public: why do any of you (not just people on MBTIc... anywhere) -- and this is a serious question, not rhetorical -- pander those who you diagnose to be seeking attention by acting the role of the natural opposition?

    I have been, and still consider myself to be one of the purporters of the negative stance on a number of issues (especially ones which can't be proven one way or another), and rather than ignore me, I'm given exactly what I want.

    Or rather, what the people say I want. It's not really what I want, but it seems to be a catch-all one-liner excusing their attack on me. If I'm just seeking attention, or I'm undoubtedly wrong, why even respond?

    I'm not defending BW: I didn't read the article, and I don't much care what he's got to say about Fi; By all means, beat the living hell out of him. Who knows? Maybe it'll work this time. Maybe he'll learn. I'm just curious what makes everyone so sure.
    As you well know, just because the quotes BW put out by those people might've indicated a feeling function doesn't make them feeling types, because, as you are so fond of preaching, we use all 8 processes.

    I wrote, because, in my opinion, the whole "well BW, you might just be talking about UNhealthy feeling types" thing is a lame, piecemeal, false arguement. They (the three people mentioned by BW) might very well not even be feeling types!

    But I hope that's not what people do when they read what you wrote.

    My immediate guess for the Rousseau example would be demonic extraverted feeling, making him an E_TJ, the Kierkegaard example as demonic Fi.(making him an I_TP!)

    Important note:
    People are very unlikely to engage in bullshitting and obfuscation with thier dominant process, but are much more likely to do so with shadow processes.

    On that note, what I can definately conclude about Rousseau from that example is that he had Fe somewhere in the shadow (in other words, he was either a _TJ or _FP type, (See? _TJ and _FP types are not opposites at all!)). I'll repeat, that Rousseau example sounds a lot like demonic extraverted feeling.

    I don't even see how the St. Augustine quote relates to the rest of your rant. He stole a freekin apple, get over it.

    On a related note, please stop trying to indirectly defend your views through quotes by prominent introverted intuition types (Nietche, Doesteovsky (maybe)). You put thier names to shame.
    It doesn't even matter if they ARE Fi types because they don't seem to be very healthy. Using an unhealthy individual to demonstrate the norm makes no sense. Unless it's the norm of unhealthy people. If one wants to demonstrate the norm for healthy people one should use examples of healthy individuals.

    This is a good point. I might've misinterpreted what people mean with the "healthy vs. unhealthy" arguement.

    I dunno.

    But I'd be happy to prove his arguments wrong instead of attack him personally.
