    My mom is a hardcore T and when she saw my results, she goes "Why are you such a feeler? Why don't you be more of a thinker?" LOL. She was kidding mostly, but I think that most thinkers think pretty exactly that about us feelers. In truth, I find it both annoying and amusing.

    I don't think most Thinkers view Feelers the same way BlueWing does- I wouldn't call him the role model of the Thinker group.

    I tried to be more T when it was clear that my F was unacceptable. Wore me out.

    There you are, Pink. Might as well ask a leopard to change their spots.

    I wasted years trying to think in a linear fashion.

    Well, often linearity vs non-linearity has more to do with S vs N.

    That's interesting. Why do you believe that?

    I can see that. Yes. I'd also like to hear more about that. . .

    S's tend to see things as they are ( great at more rote oriented style teaching)

    N's tend to see the underlying connections and lose sight of what is ( better at discussing concepts, but terrible at strict defining)

    S's are more apt to notice each step that leads to a conclusion. they are great at listing procedures in a linear way.

    N's are more apt to see the multiple steps(*different perspectives as well) it takes to lead to a conclusion at once, so they forgo listing each of them and just arrive at the conclusion in a non sequential or even linear way.
    My cold, snide, intellectual life is just a veneer, behind which lies the plywood of loneliness.

    Ok, I keep seeing references to BlueWing but I'm and I don't know who that is... Anyone care to clue me in?

    I am new here myself, Brooke. I suppose Blue Wing is another member of the group here.

    I imagine lack of response to your question is a courtesy offered in reluctance to speak of someone with them not present.

    And hello.
