    It may not be able to be proved "fact" by science, but in my opinion, alot of our "facts" are still only observed from a human perspective. I am not going to go into anything too deep, but people follow patterns just as the rest of the Universe does. This is probably one of the most accurate and accessible instruments in evaluating those patterns. It started my interest in understanding personalities, which led me to cognitive functions, and I have so much more understanding in my life thanks to this. As an INTP, understanding is what keeps me sane.

    If only we were all capable of at least rationally set boundaries as to not give wrong meanings to much hold over our lives and the lives of others.

    ...Well, it's a slow process and we're on the right track I guess. In contrary to popular hollywood belief, globalism won't happen over night. (At least not if we want to get it as close to right as possible. :P )

We say so... and that makes us invalidating.
    This is not male, it is thinking-based, as in T vs. F type.

    They started listening to my feeling and expessing their own feelings, and before long, the rational controlling male had lost control of the meeting.

    Of course he himself was afraid of losing control of his own feelings, and so to control his own feelings he tried to control the feelings of everyone in the group.
    Was this manner of epression appropriate to the meeting topic and purpose? Letting your feelings run amok or spill out in inappropriate venues is not feminism, it is lack of self-control. See T/F comment above.
    I've been called a criminal, a terrorist, and a threat to the known universe. But everything you were told is a lie. The truth is, they've taken our freedom, our home, and our future. The time has come for all humanity to take a stand...

    On the contrary, the controlling man lacked emotional self control, and in reaction tried to control the emotions of the whole group.

    And by expressing my immediate felt emotion I freed the whole group to express their own felt emotions.

    And so the emotional control of the patriarch of the group was broken. Whoopee!
