    Cause they find it interesting and hope you do too. Is there ever any other reason?

    I'm a little mixed up here. Read what as more what?

    Those descriptions weren't even in the original definitions... where did that come from? I mean, I suppose it does make sense to say that Ts and Fs treat people the way you say, but... how is any of this related to what I said?

    Sorry I'm being a little obtuse.

    Your reaction was firstly about who each applies to, my friends get more effort and hence I engage the T process where as strangers only get what I can most easily afford. Where as I was firstly looking into the principles and only thinking about ther personal angle after you brought it up.

    Oh and those descriptions are illustrations of the differences between the preferences as written in "An Introduction to the MBTI" (least I think that's it... details).

    That'd be unusual me thinks. Interest first and money second. Why write about paint peeling if you can write about the love of your life?

    I should mention that my father is one of these people and at the rate he's going me and my sister are the only one's who'll be benefiting!

    But if it's so simple, how can they make it into a book?
    Seems like someone's got to be wrong here...

    Would an example be the following: Someone that was seriously emotionaly damaged during childhood commits murder. T wants him to get the death penalty, F wants him to live and be rehabilitated because it's sort of not his fault. ?

    The principles of it are simple, the implications complex. Hence shadows and stuff.

    Let's face it, according to some neurons are all we have... 1s and 0s. How can ANYTHING be that complex?

    That sounds about right. I think...

    That's the thing though.. which one's that? I think the one you consider most just is indicative of what type you are.
