    I thought feelers tended to prefer soft science.
    If a deaf INFP falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?

    On a side note, it always was my opinion some psychologists did science emotionally. :/
    If it leads to wrong conclusions it's bad. But it depends on intelligence.

    You'd be surprised. Especially those with Te functionality are motivated towards science by curiosity + desire to help people and enjoy the feeling of progressing through controllable steps to reach a tangible answer. They can be pretty diligent.

    As a counter, Freud was a T. T's can enjoy the ambiguity of soft sciences -- there are patterns but they're "gray" and complex, and it's more interesting/mysterious to figure out, versus typical hard science where you are just calculating the answers.

    Do you try and meet them halfway, homme? If someone approached me in a discussion with a predisposition to getting annoyed at the way I process things, I'd leave the conversation entirely.

    If you are a 'feeler' who has the ability to present rational arguments or reasoning and simply expects a mutual effort from the other end of the spectrum, I sympathize.

    But the ability to integrate other points of view with one's own seems separate from whether or not they are a 'T' type. I think those feelers who use the argument that because their feelings are subjective and true to them, they are the right way are just as dismissive as thinkers who consider emotions to be lesser route... and I see many of those.

    (No idea if this made a whit of sense. )

    Put another way, people (T or F) either respect others who are different or they do not.

    You may sympathize. It all goes with intelligence usually.
