i agree that there are times when it's unethical to go against one's set of morals. most times. but there are also other times when it's unethical to be rigid with moral "rules".No, there are times when one acts unethically by going against one's set of morals, but the idea that "morals have to bend" is basically indicative of a *lacking* of morals.
i never said all morals have to bend. i just mean you have to have some sort of a dynamic moral set, one that can respond to different situations in different ways.
i have a set of personal moral rules and i look to the situation to choose how to apply them, and how they interact with other people's rules. if compromise is necessary, i'll do it.Though someone with loosely held morals would say/think/believe that (what you assert).
if everyone had a completely rigid value set, we'd never get anywhere as a race.
well, it just seems really easy to go from there to an "i'm right and everyone who disagrees with me is wrong" attitude.Why, what's so terrible about it?
How is it fallacious, and to whom does it potentially harm?
it seems necessary to accept that everyone views things their own way and compromise is often unavoidable.
cognitive dissonance applies to EVERYONE. even those with a "strong self-concept"; maybe even moreso to them.Yeah, I know about cognitive dissonance, and how those lacking a strong self-concept are more vulnerable to *lie to themselves* *ignore logical consistency* *ditch personal integrity* and *shirk accountability* in order to simply feel good about themselves.
stop condescending. i agree with that.No, (for most of us), morals are emotionally felt and founded, and hardwired into our neural network, i.e. our biology.
i don't know what the Theory of Mind is, but i'm a cognitive science major, so i've definitely learned about mirror neurons.Have you come across any research on the existence of mirror neurons and their correlation to human empathy. Also, have you come across any research on ToM, Theory of Mind?
Fi does not EQUAL having and utilizing empathy.No need for the post script, from my experience with Fe doms, I was able to infer their moral relativist philosophical inclinations.
Fi= having and utilizing empathy
