    What would that look like in practice?

    Remember that just because you have people "thinking objectively" or "taking feelings/circumstances into consideration" doesn't mean that you'll come out with predictable outcomes. Different values and experiences mean that every aspect is weighted differently for everyone.

    For murder, I'm not really interested in whether the murderer was abused as a kid. Abused as a kid doesn't equal taking an unrelated person's life. Perhaps if they killed their actual abuser as a way to escape, but growing up to murder your wife or boss, or some random person on the street, and using child abuse as a defense doesn't sit well with me. It baffles me when people want to defend the murderer and forget about the victim.

    If we're not talking broad, across the board social-type issues, I generally do see the individual, and I try to look at the situation from his/her perspective, and try to understand why he or she would think or react that way.

    I see people as individuals, but when they've done something really heinous, I also see that they had their free will to do that, and I don't have to continue to make excuses for them.

    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'm not stating principles though. The principles are that people should generally conform to certain patterns based upon the observation of individuals. The implications of this are still filtering through. Heck the principle may be proven wrong!

    This is how I would sum up the difference between F and T bosses, at least.
    So since the second approach relies on personal knowledge of the individual, the ones who whine the most basically get the most attention. Even though the T approach doesn't come from a desire to be "nice", it leads to less resentment. But in matters of intimacy or friendship the F method is probably better.
    I don't wanna!

    I just think his setup in those books is meant to show that these issues aren't as cut and dried as anyone of us would like them to be...

    If I had to pick one I would easily take the second sentence, whereas I would have a hard time deciding if it´s more important to treat people fairly or individually. People are different, they have different personalities, different skills and different preferences. Put in the same situation and given equal chances, one person may cope better with this situation than the other because it suits his preferences. That´s why I think that treating every one as an individual being is important, but it´s also something which I label as „fair“.
    What do Thinkers see as treating someone fairly and individually?

    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...
    If I remember correctly the men weren´t acquitted, they were send to jail. That´s one of many differences between the novel and the movie. I could see you point of view if you were talking about the movie, but the novel was more about planned revenge, lying and undermining the legal system.

    What say you?
    These aren't mutually exclusive. Find me an F who feels people should be treated unfairly...Find me a T who thinks people are not individuals....

    It might be more accurate to say Ts don't really give as much thought to how individuals are treated as they might, and perhaps Fs give it too much thought.

    IMO, this is more indicative of the J than the T.
