    I'm just laughing at the OVERreaction to a little comment... I wasn't even COMMENTING on people's unreasonable ideas of what different types are like in the OP, I was just commenting that a lot of people seem to interact with just a few people and STILL enjoy judging humanity as a whole, which doesn't really seem all that fair when you think about it

    @senza_tema I don't think that's what she's saying at all.

    I think she values experience over theory, and hard science begins in experience, not in theory.

    Both are needed, both are valuable, I think Whatever values experience a great deal, and so do I, and this is probably common in people who value Se or Si strongly.

    This facet of myself is one of the things which is actually made me think I might be Se rather than Ne, although I do like theory.

    Hardly an overreaction, he's merely pointing out that anecdotal evidence isn't verifiable in the same way that scientific studies are. Nowhere did he discount the importance of real life interaction in understanding human nature, just that this alone doesn't necessarily make you an authority on human nature, and that patronising people who believe in a more theoretical approach is condescending.

    I'm not saying there have been no overreactions, especially since the debate got going but it wasn't entirely on his side.

    I actually have a college degree in the more theoretical approach... where the fuck do people get off thinking that I have no clue about that either... I was laughing at the fact that he called me classless in the first place

    I agree with most of what you've said but I still think her approach appears to be unnecessarily reductionist, whether or not these are her views or intentions.

    I didn't say you have no clue about a theoretical approach, merely that you appear to be devaluing it to some extent. Patronising people who DO prefer it is not the epitome of classy either.

    It kind of sucks that the way I expressed myself became an issue, and I regret not expressing myself differently.
    I'm not calling you anything, I was only addressing the post. So if anything is classless, it's the bit that I quoted, not you. But that was an unfortunate choice of a word in the first place.
