A useful word for Fi-ers to know.
Weltschmerz or “world pain,” is a sadness brought on by a realization that the world cannot be the way you wish it would be. It’s more emotional than pessimism, and more painful than ennui.

I know that Erich Fromm is one of my pet theorists, I really dont think his ideas are that dated or exhausted as a lot of people, academic or otherwise, think.
One thing I do think though is that while his personality typology isnt evidenced to some peoples satisfaction it sure seems sort of credible to me and some of the worst types, exploitative, marketing, all seem all too common place and reflected in trends like the PUA stuff.
