    F's tend to be more emotionally in tune. They tend to be more spiritual. The are also tend to be very inquisitive and curious.
    Maybe If T's demonize F's it's because they are jealous that F's can match T depth, and T's can't touch F's breadth.

    If they don't demonize F's.. I take all of this back

    Do thinkers really demonize feelers that much or is it that they enjoy making fun of them since it gets a reaction?

    I voted for the big meanie category, too. Because anyone who sits in vent knows that I love my 'anti-feeler' shtick. And I'm a big meanie.

    Isn't this whole thread kind of a "demonization" of thinkers?

    Except we really don't take offense. Sooo...isn't it your problem you feel demonized, not ours?

    (yes, I am a big meanie, too )

    It's probably because they know that despite all their logic and facts backing their arguments, I can always say "I don't care, I think the sun rises from the North" and do this or this

    This quote from Gifts Differing raises an interesting concept.....that Thinkers "demonize" Feeler because their own feeling is infantile, and most people think that others operate as they do, so they assume that F decisions must be faulty, as their own Feeling is not trusted due to its poorer development. It's never a surprise to me that Ts who do not "demonize" Feeling often are relatively more comfortable/good with their own Feeling process.

    To Thinkers, the idea of evaluating by means of feeling sounds flighty, unreliable, and uncontrolled, but Thinkers are no judges of Feeling. They naturally judge all Feeling by their own, and theirs is relatively undeveloped and unreliable.

    You can run right off the edge of a cliff with your illogic, too, as long as it doesn't impact me. (See, I don't care either!)

    For some of us, it's "vision, logic, action" vs. "logic, feeling, sp. awareness".
    Can look alot like: getting stuff done vs. feeling good.

    (BTW, I don't demonize feelers. It isn't worth the effort, and they can be handy to have around.)
