How often do you even hear NTs talking about emotions? Maybe this is why you don't hear it. I readily admit I'm better at handling logic than emotions.Secondly, it's kinda bullshit, because NTs rarely admit they are bad at feelings.
NTs often dismiss emotions, but not because they don't think emotions are important (especially their own) but because they don't think emotions are relevant. For example, I don't think people's emotions are pertinent in this thread. The idea of emotions is germane since that is a topic of discussion. But not people's emotions themselves, since this is not a discussion about values but about truth--ie, is this argument true? Not is this argument good or bad?And when they do admit it, often they do so with disdain because they generally consider the emotional realm to be silly, trivial and irrelevant. In this case, admitting to not being good at it is a lot like 'admitting' you don't find Twilight intellectually stimulating - it's actually an indirect boast of superiority.
And it is because NTs are usually concerned with truth that they don't take emotions into consideration. Not because they don't think emotions and values are important.
No, what NTs mean when they say they are better at NT-type thinking is they are better at logic. At assessing the truth of propositions.Thirdly, what NTs (and clearly some pandering NFs too) really mean when they say they're better at NT-thinking is that they're better at serious, intellectual thought. No shit that NFs, "become upset when challenged on this belief" that we're capable of it. Why don't you just say, "stop pretending like you're smart"?
If you don't explain it, then how can I be bothered to understand it?Also, feelings ≠ Feeling. I can't be bothered actually explaining that for the Thousandth time, so I'm holding out that you might actually catch on.
Do you have evidence NFs are "more capable of rational thought"?Have you considered for a second that it's not compensating and that maybe NFs are actually more than capable of rational thought? Or do you just sigh patronizingly and shake your head in amusement like we're monkeys dressed up like humans, riding around on tricycles?
Show me where that ENFP says NFs can't think rationally? On the contrary, he said NFs can think rationally, only not as well as NTs can. And since you admit you can't use Ti-Te as well as NTs, you apparently agree. So why your post? One word: Strawman.I'm not going to pretend that I'm better at using Te or Ti than NTs, but I don't think that means that I should never dare question a NT's logic or judgement, or debate with them. I certainly don't see how it's arrogance, overcompensation, or an act of denial for me to engage in logical argument.
