    Damn right. My girlfriend is a really smart feeler, INFP, but sometimes I have to really explain how I think I feel almost robotic when I analyze my own behavior

    It is daunting as an Eff to be presented with a problem to solve with a deadline assigned.

    My initial reaction is panicky confusion. Where's my problem-solving chart? What method do I chose? What is a method?

    The essential factor for me over time has become faith in myself. I have everything I need to come to a satisfactory answer. If not I am capable of researching. I have no trouble asking for help if I need it. It's a matter of trusting my process or lack of.

    In time the answer appears (almost magically) and I usually muddle through as well as any human can.

    Just to clarify Anja, I think the problem with deadlines is more a 'P' vs 'J' thing or how welld developed your Se/Si is? Or something. I feel like we're talking astrology and the signs in people's houses blah blah blah.

    - What I don't like about some "feelers", especially with NF's is that they are sometimes stubborn, defying apparent logic, in order to preserve a belief, which is not based on sound logic.
    - I don't dig it when feelers do not discuss things dispassionately and when they do debate, they use "feeler logic", which sucks.
    - A heart doesn't belong on a sleeve. Feelings should be a source of great strength, inside your chest, combined with the intellect.

    + Some are my closest friends, because they have admirable qualities.

    Feeler logic doesn't "suck". You just don't use it.
