    Isn't the Fi/Fe duality enough to cover this?
    hmmm... good thought. mind you, as i understand it, Fi refers to values when Fe refers to getting along with people. either way, stuff like anger are not involved directly.

    Hmmmm....

    Just a hunch:

    Values formation:
    Ne/Fi axis

    Spontaneous, spur of the moment feeling:
    Se/Fi axis

    Yeah, I haven't even been here for more than a day and after reading a few threads it feels like F's and T's are throwing rocks to each other in here. I know for a fact I can't relate to someone with too strong a T. Sometimes it is as if they were looking down on me, I've had a couple of T's look at me as "stupid" because I don't make decisions like they do, rationally. I'd rather think about how it will impact people, how they will feel. Funny thing is the nt who does this to me, going around proving he is smart(why does he have to prove it?o.O) was actually laughed at for having an accent and saying stupid things, people rejected and laughed at him as a child. Now he's scarred and takes it out on anyone who resembles his "old ugly duckling", I don't let him play with my feelings anymore I bluntly cut him tell him I won't take his crap and leave, then he runs back to me.(I don't want him, why's he following me? Any advice on how to make nts run away by the way?)Also he has a strange obsession with always wanting my stuff in priority if possible in school.Kind of creepy...

    Screw the rocks. Bring out the catapult! The only ones left standing will be the T/F "crossover" hybrids who can run to the winning side...then take over.

    For your NT. I see school, I think age (assumption), and I think development is an issue. The rest is somewhat vague so I can't comment. Are you trying to make the NT just back off or completely, never talk to you again? If he is a heavy T, you are going to have to use logical thought on why you two should never want to talk again. Hehe, good luck with that one.

    For the record, I am not one of those Thinkers. I have repeatedly argued on this forum that many Thinkers are emotive, and many Feelers are quite dead-pan.

    Well, he has this tendency to just eavesdrop and start arguments out of the blue, I have to tell him very bluntly, borderline "bitchy" until he calms down and talks normally".Backing off is fine, he's not a monster just pretty pompous with his intelligence, I know plenty of smart/geniuses people nobody acts like that. What's the biggest turn off for T's basically, especially NTs? He'll ask me why I use a computer instead of hand writting a report and then I'd tell him: corrects my mistake so my paper doesn't look messy(I'm a pig..)
    He interprets it as "mental laziness" and will start debating about the use of computer in schools for 30 minutes trying to make me sound like an illiterate person. Is that typical nt behavior? I swear I don't know anyone else like that.

    then they learn MBTI more and realize that feeling is necessary for thinking to even take place. they see the utility of value judgments and figure out that a balance between T and F is the goal.

    i guess the correlation is probably there -- Fs (on average) immaturely express their value judgments more than Ts. but not by much. the conclusion certainly is not applicable to individuals anyway.
    Agreed. I have a problem with immaturity played off as intellectualism regardless of the source being T or F. If you are making a joke or satirical comment, fine; but if you are trying to be serious and coming off as an immature fart - there's the door. (General you, not you you).

    doesn't matter. if you lean strong to one end, that just means you have to work on the other even more.
    Agreed. 100%. I think I'm blessed to have a relatively balanced T/F axis, which means I can essentially 'do both' for lack of a better expression.

    You are no feeler, because feeling I always connect with wisdom
    Those people were idiots - not you. Feeling and thinking both have value - essential value, which is why the question of feeling v. thinking is rather pointless. As I have said multiple times, both sides are necessary - even if it is just to have a point of reference. Both are necessary in real life.

MBTI has chosen a non-ideal word to categorize the function. F does not just mean "I feel like peanuts therefore i demand peanuts". it's more 'who would i hurt in making this decision?' and 'is it morally right to do something like this?'.
    Agreed. I've seen quite a lot of emotional Ts. And so what? Ts are human, too.

    Honestly, though, I do not understand this love affair with dead-panism. Woo hoo, I have no feelings so I must be an enlightened individual who has evolved beyond all that mish mosh. Pfft....It's all a psychological game that your psyche is playing folks. To be really developed, you do not have 100% I or E, N or S, T or F, J or P. You have 50% of both. Then you are a truly balanced, enlightened indivudal who can see the value of every point on each axis. *sigh* Since hardly any of us can reach that goal, we go through trials and relationships to help achieve that balance in life. Once we reach it, we die because we have achieved our purpose....

I thought it might be interesting to take a closer look at how emotion and thought relate to each other in the human psyche.
    I think it's a great idea, and I am looking forward to reading other perspectives.

    I think the really interesting thing is to define 'rational'. What is rational? Who decides what is rational? Who decides which decisions 'should' be made 'rationally' and isn't that a 'value' statement to say what 'should' be done rationally, which in and of itself is not 'rational'???? Bah!

    Should I make a cost-benefit analysis or a psychological or sociological or scientific experiment to decide who to love???? Gimme a break!!!! On the other hand, should I decide complex, important matters based on a hunch without any kind of C/B - SWOT analysis...hmmm, maybe not. I'm very rational when it comes to certain things - in the conventional meaning of the word - very irrational when it comes to other things. And my decisions about what should be decided rationally and irrationally are not always rational. So, does that make me a 'bad' or an 'unintelligent' person who is not to be 'trusted'? Pfffft....

    These 'thinkers' and 'feelers' put too much stock in their preferred modes of decision making. As if feelers never think and thinkers never feel??? What about those of us like me who are almost 50/50???? Are we total dumbasses just because the scales tipped slightly in favor of feeling? Pfft, I should hope not.

    When people start bitching irrationally like that while claiming to be rational, I usually just let a big fart go. That solves the issue, and I have my peace.

    In my opinion, it's a rational solution: Gives both parties a chance to really think rationally - i.e. this is NOT A BIG DEAL.

    See, I would try to reassure you that it's not usually like that here, but... it's usually like that here. *sigh*

    Umm. Welcome to the boards, though.
