*shrugs* I do not see this thread as trolling - it is a fair question if thinkers *really* feel that way. I could never see thinking and feeling as two separate things: they are complemetary aspects that are both necessary to arrive at a conclusion. Right???

That's because the real answer is extremely boring and couldn't fill a whole page. It goes like this: "they misunderstood the theory".
If anyone wants to discuss why people misunderstand theories, then you'd better start that thread in the philosophy forum.
I think you're right that people do misunderstand the theory. As Hap has pointed out, the names lend themselves to this misunderstanding. I saw you suggest somewhere else that maybe instead of thinking and feeling, the names would be better as logic and ethics. I think that would be an improvement. But I think all the humanities and arts, not just ethics, have a lot to do with what MBTI calls feeling. Also, there is a lot more to reason than logic. Not to dicker about it too much, because I liked where you were heading and what your intention was.
