    As much as I despise the Wing, you have to admit that y'all NFs are a predictable bunch, discussing the implications of this garbage at length.

    The flaw wouldn't be in addressing feelings, I think, as much as trying to squeeze them into the scientific realm which doesn't work as so many of our rigid thinkers notice.

    They are trying to evaluate an intangible by the rules of a material world!
    Good points. I agree that the entire system itself is structurally shaped in favor of thinking over feeling.

    I haven't thought about it that much, but I think a system that included feeling would have a more cooperative aspect to it versus a competitive one.

    I also think there would be more group discussions where characters and themes in stories are discussed in detail. Questions could be asked like "And why do you think this character is making this decision? What is motivating them? How do you think they felt after they saw this happen? How would you react in their shoes?" etc. I think it would at least stimulate the feeling side of people and possibly give them the opportunity to see things from a different angle.

    And I hope rigid thinkers would accept that not everything can be understood through hard logic.

    I accept no responsibility, what so ever, for the fact that I exist; I do, however, accept full responsibility for what I do while I exist.

    No.
    I have nor had any emotional connection to him, so no.
    It did sadden me a bit that he died, and what it meant to everyone else, but still no. Rather, I felt irritated at the fact that I didn't see anyone trying to help him, but then again it wasn't a real news feed so.. *shrug*

    Yes as well as the entire system is based on female values and being an S. There is a minimal amount of actual T in schools nor the actual requirement of understanding, simple memorization is enough. Of course if you want to be ranked amongst the best there, you have to have a well developed sense of logic, but by no means is it a requirement, the absolute majority of the school system is based towards creating people that can fit into certain systems, not people that can freely think around them and choosing what's best at certain scenarios. Thus I cannot agree to the statement that school is T based, heck, it's not even advantageous to T's in a lot of cases, I know countless people who do far better, than pure T's who understand the subject at hand several times better then the aforementioned F's, simply because of the fact that the T's rebel when they are asked to do something in a fashion that is wasteful and unneudingly complex. Also, literature, etiquette, psychology, philosophy, choreography, music, arts... ect already cater to your F's that we T's have to face up to.

    Personally, I don't think that it's even worth to try and understand something to which actual logic doesn't apply.

    That wasn't horrible or disturbing. That was sad. I felt sorry for him but that was far from "profound" or "overwhelming". I can't see what would make this "disturbing".

    I must confess, BW, that this exercise gives the unsavory appearance of an individual looking to confirm suspicion, rather than to falsify precept.

    The consequences of which, as you know, do grievous injury to the credibility of your protected position.

    Measuring conclusion on the basis of subjective interpretation is less about hard science than it is about developing a broken statistical anomaly. Facts can be doctored as a means to confirm/deny premise without ever actually involving it.

    I offer this to you as redundant suggestion.



    As an aside, Decision Theory/optimization of utility might be an interesting read for you.
