    Default Having to live in a "T" world.

    Did you all see the news article about how people who are mean get paid better?

    I am so sick of this world rewarding "T"s. We "F"s try to make the world a nicer and friendlier place, but the T's just keep winning.

    Disagree. The F's I know are far more prone to gossip than the T's.

    I think Fe is very much rewarded by society, particularly if you're female. Maybe not Fi as much, particularly if you're male.

    Of course, those rewards are often not monetary, but they could be (networking is huge!)

    Do you want to be nice, or rich?
    Your kisses, sweeter than honey. But guess what, so is my money.

    In my experience I find that T and F has little to do with people being mean or wanting to make the world a nicer and friendlier place.

    I do however agree with your moral indignation even as an INTP ;D

    uhhhhh, if you are talking about more in the business world, then yes. People with psychopathic tendencies tend to get paid better because they will do whatever it takes to get what they want but that is not contingent on T or F AT ALL. Luckily very few people are considered to have psychopathic tendencies. Depending on the location, I read they make up about .5%-1% of the population.

    Agree.

    I really don't see it as an F/T thing. When it comes to business and 'moving ahead' in the world ('moving ahead' can even be in a purely social sense, where some of the F's win the prize for being the meanest and cruelest bunch around, esp. in pre-teen years), F's and T's alike can and will be cutthroat. It's all dependent on the individual and what their moral compass is. Being F doesn't make for a moral or 'nice' person.

    Some of my closest friends and lovers have been T's, and they are very respectful, well-meaning, good people. I them. I also have some close F friends. I also find some F's horrid, and some T's horrid. Point being: it falls on the individual, but little distinction between F/T when it comes to treating people decently.

    Do you have a link to the article? I'd be curious to see how exactly they're defining 'mean', if that's in fact what they're saying, rather than simply that having certain traits that some people consider 'mean' makes them more successful in the business world.

    it's not that mean people get paid more, people who are paid more are more often perceived as mean. america has an extremely unhealthy lack of assertiveness. there are lots of passive people and lots of aggressive people, but there are few truly assertive people and most people don't know how to recognize one when they see one. american culture (particularly generation Y) tends to take conflict very personally and either avoids it or being exceedingly aggressive, reactive and irrational. assertive people are seen as mean because they face problems head on and solve them as quickly as possible. people misinterpret this as "looking for a fight" which really is just stupid.
