    Sensors like physical work and walking around with a look of 'duh' on our faces, right?

    I prefer a philosophy of ethics, of course my being a sensor, of course I have no idea or understanding what I'm talking about, right?

    Really? REALLY?!

    I'm am have come to the conclusion that SP's primary philosophy is postmodernism. Because we are intuitive enough to appreciate and look into all sides of any discussion or opinions. I would never tell anyone I thought their opinion was stupid because I consider that rude. I don't function that way.


    Alright. Tell how me stupid my rationality is. Bring it. Ok, I'll be waiting.

    There's another side? :confused: I've taken courses such as Philosophy & the Ethical Life, Philosophy of Being, Philosophy of Technology, etc. and I'm convinced that all of our philosophy can't help but to ultimately be about our own existence -- what it is, what it means, and what to do with it -- due to it necessarily being the product of us puny mortals incapable of ever truly escaping our own finite perspectives (though we might fondly imagine otherwise).

    I see... that makes sense. [strokes imaginary goatee] Apropos of nothing, I've decided to go into accounting.

    In high school I thought I wanted to be a lawyer at one point. My neighbor who was one was over one day and told me he had an undergraduate degree in philosophy. I quickly changed my mind about being a lawyer if I had to talk philosophy I wasn't going that route.

    I had gotten the vibe that philosophy was beyond my ability. I couldn't pronounce philosopher's names either. The whole subject made me feel inadequate. At the time I felt like philosophers had some truth that I'd never be able to understand.

    Of course now I know philosophy is a subject of conjecture rather than empiricism, but when young, I was ignorant.

    Hmm, I don't take too well to textbook philosophy. Or maybe its just media ethics.

    I wrote an essay for my ethics class with the premise that the Philosophers are Stoned.

    I got 22/25.
    I am an ENFP but I value justice over mercy.

    I don't know about other INFJs, but philosophy is dear to me. I do not harp on terminology and structure of it, because I think that to perceive the purpose of life it would be impossible to put entirely into words... it goes beyond that, indescribable. So I admire and am influenced by what philosophers have said, for I have great respect for those who try to understand the universe and meaning, but I will always put the greatest emphasis on what I intuit as what's "the way."

    Herman Hesse's Siddhartha sums up my perspective perfectly. Can't be taught the way, in the end I find it on a river and cannot possibly relay the wonder of it all to any other.
