    I tend to take an all inclusive approach to decision making and analysis. I'm like the FBI who takes every phone call to find a missing person and observe what patterns emerge from the influx of facts. I do this rather than initially seeing how many perspectives I can dismiss (like assuming all subjective elements are irrelevant in a scenario). I attempt to include every angle possible. Depending on the nature of the problem, I will lean one way or another. I see different approaches to reasoning as different tools. I value having as many tools as possible to best survive.

    If a decision is only hampered by emotional reactions and thinking, I attempt to disregard that element, and I do well enough to get decent results. If a decision benefits from this, then I use it. For example, if I have a student who starts crying out of frustration, I use supportive language to appeal to them specifically to make them feel special and strong to solve the problem of emotional crisis. On the other hand, if i am passed over for a job I really wanted, an emotional response will only wear me down, and so I distance myself from it. In that case I view myself as a tiny speck in the larger picture, realizing my personal desires have limited usefulness in building a peaceful life.

    I have never been one to make friends easily but when I do I am loyal, I don't pass judgment and I am not solely in it for what I think they can do for me but rather how I can help them and do for them.
    WORD.. This thread is very insulting...

    I haven't read the whole thread. Human beings tend to be judgmental of whoever is unlike them as an individual. I don't see how that is related to F or T. There are Fs who care enough to have real empathy/sympathy and not pass judgment just like there are Ts who use empathy/objectivity to withhold judgment.

    How should a person who approaches everything in very abstract, theoretical, impersonal terms approach this question? I don't know the answer to that, but if the intent is not personal, I can see a reason not to take it personally. In some ways I prefer a conclusion that is abstract to a fault over one in which the person assumes everyone of a personality type is the embodiment of their evil ex or something.

    I find it frustrating when I'm asked to explain something I've found through feeling with logic, because it is simply impossible.

    School is frustrating for me because there is so much emphasis on organization and logic/impersonal thinking, and I don't really want to do things that way.

    When it comes to discussing things with other people that are logic based, I tend to flip-flop a lot, although I also often am just kind of indifferent.

    I found logic better to work with since you either get it right or you get it wrong and the rules were universal. the subjective stuff you had to deal with what the teacher felt to get it right so there was a lack of being allowed to be myself. If I have to follow someone's rules I'll take logic; want to try something else, let me do what the hell I want. ^_^

But I acted that way because I wanted to both prevent conflict (F) & to let the operation run smoothly & acting throwing a tantrum would only make the process worse (T). I also used to be more critical when I was younger & less emotionally involved but gradually I changed. Nowadays I dread criticism & can become very emotionally involved in art, music, movies, etc

    Rationally out of concern for others? Doesnt stop you from being an F. Feeling is a rational function. It is about thinking about the human element and making decisions based on personal criteria rather than impersonal.

    If forced to make an impersonal decision I'll either go with my gut but if my gut is being indesive I use logic if that doesn't work I just don't decide.

    Yeah tell me about it..2+2 isnt really 4...there is no impersonal mathematical formula to vouch for this..im really fooling myself when i think i can use logic to make that discovering..it really has somethign to do with my feelings and biases and only mathematicians with the same biases and values can get the 'right' answer...

    and me knowing that my car is white also has nothing to do with an impersonal, objective fact...and only those who sympathize with my personal values and feelings also see my car as white..those who dont like me or dont share the same values as i do or dont feel the way i do at the moment obviously wont see my car as white ..wont they?
