    To me, feelings are confusing as heck. I don't know if I'd say they "don't matter" but they're just perplexing. I usually try to avoid situations which are feelings-oriented.

    There's a very simple answer for this. He's trying to find out some information or get some thing from them, so he plays the polite card so they'll give him as much help as possible. It only makes sense.

    Feelings matter, they matter a lot, but there is no point in everyone feeling great about a decision, if the decision doesn't do what it needs to do....

    Functionally something needs to work, there is no point buying a TV that doens't meet peoples functional needs, just because 8 out of 9 people say they feel the other one is prettier... or has a better vibe... it wont work...

    So ultimately T types make decisions base on fit for purpose, before the warm and fuzzies...

    The downside is that if the T type hasn't make people warm enough the fuzzie types will reject the fit for purpose... HOWEVER no one likes change and they will get use to it in the long run...

    Why don't feelings matter?

    Because you touch yourself at night.

    The logical validity of inductive reasoning is disputable anyway.

    Well, despite the "personal jabs removed" from this post, you're probably right. NTPs try to rely on Ti for that, with kind of mixed results.
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?

    Then we agree.
