    This reminds me of the movie 'Monster'. Despite the opinion I have here, when I watched that movie I was thinking, but, but...It's not her fault!!
    I think justice doesn't resume to punishing criminals. Would be more like having a society in which that kind of acts doesn't happen (boy, I sound totally idealistic here).
    And yes, I thought the same about Monster. But people need demons. It's easier to think that there's "evil people" than "evil environments in which we're all a little bit guilty".

    Is idealism typically an INTP thing? Pardon my ignorance.

    Cynicism is more of an INTP thing.

    Cynism comes after you realize how stupid and futile is your idealism. Which is usually at a young age.

    thank you ajblaise.
    Kora, I think being wholeheartedly disillusioned with life is the perfect state to be in.

    So sort of the difference between studying cultures on an across the board measure or by a culturally relativist viewpoint?

    Meaning- are we judging things based on an unchanging ruler or does each culture get a ruler based on the qualities of that culture?

    I would almost think that that would be the biggest difference between a TJ type and an FP type, since J and P would seem to play into the absolutist attitude to me as well. P lends the beleif in more gray areas while J likes the black and white.

    I can see that an F would be more interested in the personal qualities of a person- the "why?" of the person while a T would look at the "what?"- the more impersonal side of the issue.

    That's just my poorly disorganized thoughts though I guess

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

    And you think that you've found that simplistic principle?
    T and F is as simple as that huh?

    Oh wait... it all works except until you recognize that you have, in fact, postulated an implication, rather than a principle.

    And the implications are complex, you're correct.

    I've often heard the fairness thing described as...

    T's want everyone to have an equal chance
    F's want people to have a chance they deserve.

    And...Grisham wrote at least two books to get at the idea of justice

    The Chamber, where a murderer is being executed, but he's innocent of the crime he's actually accused of. Where's the justice adn do we want the system working that way...

    A View to a Kill, where a black man in the deep south shoots the men who raped his little girl but were acquitted in the pre Civil Rights era. Was it wrong when there was no justice?

    I'm not really sugesting we debate these, just that Grisham raises the issues in the stickiest situations imaginable to get us to see how difficult they are...

    And these are very good definitions that should once and for all dismiss the notion that one has to do with cognition and the other emotions. They're both based on cognitive decision making, but thinkers want everyone to be treated the same under similar conditions whereas feelers believe that the circumstances should always be considered. It also reaffirmed that I am a thinking type.
