    Default NFs and ethics

    While each NF is interested in ethics, which type do you believe is the most interested in learning about ethics?

    INFP? ENFJ? INFJ? :o I don't know if it's a type thing, or more of an individual thing.

    Learning about ethics? No clue. Most interested in adhering to ethics? I would say INFJ.

    Btw, I think ethical and logical as used in socionics are better names for the 'feeling' and 'thinking' dichotomy used in MBTI.

    Learning about ethics. Not me, really. I create my own system (obviously it's partly a byproduct of my education).

    You three learn them, we're born with them? .

    But yeh, I'd go with INFJ from people I know. Like Sytpg, my drive toward studying ethics or learning them from courses or books is pretty low. They just develop and refine as part of real world experience or as I get new insights on activities and their consequences. Doesn't mean I'm not interested in social philosophy and business philosophy though. I found studying business models and ethics quite interesting (though I guess that isn't the ethics we were discussing).

    i had an ethics class last year, and i really liked it! learning about all the different systems helped me to better understand how others look at the world, and helped me catagorize how I look at the world, myself

    Seeing as how ethicists are concerned not with behaving ethically, but rather with what amount to intellectual problems, I find it hard to think that an NF would be any more concerned with this endeavor than other types.

    I think in terms of saying who would be most interested among NFs in studying Ethics in Philosophy at school, it would be INFP? I was gonna, but it didn't fit into my sched.

    NF's focused on Ethics? I think they are, but it's a different kind of ethic than NT's have. NF ethics are based on feelings, so it's ok to break a rule here and there if that makes the other(s) feel better.

    To NT's that's the most unethical thing to do. Ethics and Logic go hand in hand I think. But with NT's the level of ethics is mostly based on how important fairness is I guess, but it's always logically supported.
