    You are only demonized if you choose to be.

    There are plenty of thinkers around here who don't have a problem relating to feelers and vice versa. I don't see a huge problem. I do see some recurrent arguments. For some reason I have to admit I enjoy these arguments. Does that make me an immature feeler, do you think? It's probably a good thing I have so little computer time.

    No.

    Although you're simply trying to mechanize wordplay here, you're missing the point.

    Blaming the victim is poor strategy.

    They do it too.

    They just prefer to do it to the Thinker's face rather than complain about them over the internet.

    Yes and always by the same people. Most of the thinkers who chose to come here don't dislike Feelers.

    I agree. There are a few individuals who've got some thing about Feeling, but I think most of the thinkers (and feelers) here are pretty nice and understanding of each other... or at least very open-minded.

    I think most of the bad feelings, when I reflect upon my own experiences, comes from a place of defensiveness or lack of understanding. If I had a dollar for every time I've been called "heartless" by a feeler... and gave one away for every time I called a feeler "illogical", I think I'd be pretty even. (It's weird/disorienting to not comprehend someone's logical process.)

    I gripe about people being illogical as much or more than I gripe about them being heartless.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”
    ~ John Rogers
