Your partner is termanally ill with a very rare disease. There is no medication avaliabe to legally buy. There is, however, a small dosage lucked in a labratory somewhere, and the only way to save them would be to illegally break into the lab and steal the medication. Not only would you be commiting serious crimes, but you would also be taking away from medicine that could be used for studies and processes of making more, and if it was stolen, it would postpone public avaliability even longer. If you were caught, you'd face a great prison sentense, and be frounded down upon by society. If you managed to get away, you'd save your wife/husband and postpone the medicine from entering into the public even longer, which might take away from other people recieving the medicine (F). If you didn't steal it, your wife/husband would die.
What do you do?
In general, an F would be more prone to choosing answer 2
In general, a T would be more prone to choosing answer 1
However, exceptions are also common.
Please take into mind the state of mind you'd be in this situation, which is very hard to imagine, so don't just assumably put that you wouldn't take it, think hard on this one.
My father, whose been working with Myers Briggs for 20 some-off years now. He used it formally to evaluate patients at a psych hospital, and applies it to his teaching and business. He uses this hypothetical situation quite frequently when distinguishing between T and F, and how an F would be more prone to stealing the medicine and a T would logically not take the medicine. This isn't black and white, however, but it definitely distinguishes to some decree.
Neo Genesis gave me that this is Kohlberg Dillemma, which is where my father probably got it from. Here's the very original situation. Put yourself in the place of the husband and apply it to my situation and the poll.
In Europe, a woman was near death from a special kind of cancer. There was one drug that the doctors thought might save her. It was a form of radium that a druggist in the same town had recently discovered. the drug was expensive to make, but the druggist was charging ten times what the drug cost him to make. He paid $400 for the radium and charged $4,000 for a small dose of the drug. The sick woman's husband, Heinz, went to everyone he knew to borrow the money and tried every legal means, but he could only get together about $2,000, which is half of what it cost. He told the druggist that his wife was dying, and asked him to sell it cheaper or let him pay later. But the druggist said, "No, I discovered the drug and I'm going to make money from if." So, having tried every legal means, Heinz gets desperate and considers breaking into the man's store to steal the drug for his wife."
