    Just because a person is a feeler, it doesn't equate them to being good..

    I know lots of people who are feelers who are 'ignorant' feelers who harp a lot about political b.s. that half the times they don't understand where they're arguing from, though with good intentions, it doesn't mean that were 'good' people. Some were more hypocritical than others, using their self-righteousness to back inhumanity (especially the ones who try to justify wars using religion).

    I've also known the thinking types of personalities who had ethical values/treated those who were socioeconomically poorer than they were with Respect, in which the feelers did not.

    It highly depends on the individual persons involved. In other words, feeler doesn't equal good. Good depends on a person's values combined with how they treat others when they think no one's watching. My problem is when people try to make it seem as though being a thinker means being immoral, which is far from the truth.

    Oh, pretty much everybody is capable of empathy unless they are an infant, a sociopath or a psychopath. There are mirror neurons in the brain, and even NTs have these mirror neurons. NTs also possess the cellular receptors for the peptides that cause the subjective experience we call emotion.

There seems to be no room in their world at all for the idea of someone being a good person, despite being unsentimental and unemotional.

    I've tried everything I can to get through to them - I've even used Data the android as an example of a 'person' who is good and lovable despite being void of emotion or awareness of others' emotions. But it seems that the only way in which they're willing to concede this is by saying that he 'does good things', but cannot be a good person, because the good things he does are "not done out of true empathy".
    ...
    It's funny how each type tends to think it is superior to other types.
    I personally find the "empathetic" way of dealing with life offensive sometimes.
    I find it annoying when I get passed over because people are playing "favorites"
    and not really choosing the best candidate.
    But that's life, and I have to accept it, and deal with it.

    meh. let everyone think feelers are the good people. that way every random stranger who thinks they're the only one who has ever had 'that particular problem' will assume they live for that shit and dump the never-ending minutiae on them.

    it leaves me with the choice to listen or not.

    *steps out of feeler clothes* amen to that! If there were no do gooders in the world, we'd all be stuck having to fend for those who are able, but unwilling to help themselves.

    I'd rather be smart and amoral than good and dumb... that way, I'd be able to simulate goodness and reap the rewards.
