    Because only we can see their true evil.
    Why do we always come here?

    I guess we'll never know.

    don't know if ENFP's are indicative of all the other EP's but i have no problems taking bout love . i think this would be more of a T thing if anything, this wanting to be objective.

    Good point there.

    I have no problems talking about love either. But talking about "what I want" is a different story

    I swear open minded discussions get me in trouble all the time. Especially if I get bored when I go out with folks and get a few drinks...

    Close minded rigidity sucks

    I do not think that is because they can not, but because they empathize more with people and you really get the things you want out of them, when there is a situation they can react too.

    I once knew that brutal blonde in a disco, when I was single. She asked me out and I felt like being interrogated. It was not really that hard but her questions were keen and precise. Those dart questions, you cant evade but answering them. My surrounding friends did not get it, why I started to make fun of her to get rid of her, but I just could not stand her questions.

    I have a broadband of moral, relational, social and behaviourial knowledge and experience in me and I tick nearly churchlike. I dont brag, I dont kiss and tell and I have never cheated a friend. But I have no repertoire of answers at hand.

    Maybe it is an Ne-thing after all, you like to get someone to know through discussion and then specualte on his intentions. But I think it is an EP thing also. They like to empathize with people and not present them their rules of behaviour in the first place.

    Pretty though thing to overcome with my special one at times too. But we talked about it and she did understand.

    At the beginning when she has asked crucial questions, I always came up with things like "no, true, melons cant fly" xD.

    I guess this personality sometimes makes you sort of a mystery to other people. When I grow older I can probably use this as an advantage in business
    This resonates with me. I have been on both sides of this coin.

    Feeling is a poor name for what it does.

    It's not unjust to relate it to emotions though. It is invariably the direct result of an emotion. It's just that, we can't say Feeling equates, because not all emotions are automatically Feeling judgement.

    Extroverted perception often appears to offer emotive responses as do all introverted functions when violated or otherwise released -- see: catharsis -- including Ti (yes I'm talking to you Bluewing).

    Then again, most people are stupid.
    And yet many of them are Ts.

    Thinking could be veiled as selfishness.
    Maybe we're the demons.

    No wait! It must be those impulsive sinning Se types.
    Or the conniving intuitors; perhaps its them.


    Find my angle.

    I've often reflected on the fact that no perfectly, or universally satisfying words can be found for the functions. Someone will always complain that they sound wrong in one way or another, and those who rely on connotation are especially difficult to satisfy.

    But I did come up with one idea that I at least think is better than Thinking and Feeling, which are highly ambiguous. My idea was that it might be better to call them Logic and Ethic. Logical and Ethical. Of all the words I could think of, none seemed to more closely match the definitions of Thinking and Feeling than logic and ethic. It is what the two functions principally deal with.

    Magic, I think you should write a book and become the next Jung.
