    Nope.

    F types are good with social and moral complexities -- the rest are not their forte. So people are the realm of F types, and Ts get... everything else. And does specialization not breed weakness?

    The reason they're on even footing is because, being human ourselves, Ts cannot separate themselves from all things 'F', just as F types cannot separate themselves from the harsh realities of an impersonal world.

    Of course, of course... But that wasn't the point.

    It's rather about how our brains evolved, and why.

    I'm not sure if being a F or a T has anything to do with being more intelligent.
    Sometimes I feel like I'm "on Mercury"-

    Intelligence is probably not the right word to use here. "Coping resources", maybe?

    I do not reject the idea that F-types may have more ways or strategies to adapt than us T-types. I'm not sure, but that's a definite possibility. I'm open to it.
