    Indeed. Which is why someone who's more aware and in control of their Feeling would probably find it less of a hindrance than someone for whom the entire function was an enigma they can neither understand nor control.


    No it wouldnt, because it is a property of Thinking, and therefore impersonally founded. The more the INTP introverts, the more impersonal he becomes by contrast to your clause. As here we equate the inner purpose with the pure essence of objectivity.(That is because the more the INTP introverts, the more into the T essence he goes)
    I don't buy that. It'd be true if INTP's were as android-ish as some of them claim to be, but most are not - and simply wanting to not have feelings isn't the same thing as actually not having them; wanting to separate yourself completely from them isn't the same as having successfully done so - which I'd theorize that no healthy human being either could or should do. In practical reality, my experience is that the more the INTP introverts, the more they become caught up in their own subconscious workings, whilst being consciously certain that they're objective and uninvolved. The risk of intellectual conceit is higher, IMO.

    You might have a point there... actually...

    Of course, remember logically consistent doesn't always mean objective/true, and the question becomes harder to answer, since it's possible that an ENTP might be more faithful to the emerging pattern, without being constrained by their prior understanding of logic.
    Absolutely. That's what I was trying to say here:

For me it's usually a case of "Connecting dot X with dot 3.24, the logical conclusion is..." and the conclusion would be logical if X and 3.24 were actually related in the way I perceived them to be - but they're not, so my conclusion is illogical.
    You could argue that ENTP is therefore more prone to flawed logic, having greater reliance on Ne. But equally, it could be said that, being more practiced with Ne and disciplined with it, ENTP would be more likely to make the right connections in the first place, than INTP.

    Last time (in the ENTJ thread) you explained yourself privately and I didn't post my response to you. This time I am.

    I've told you you need to go and re-read your Jung. He explicitly states that introverted functions aren't any closer to the unconscious than extroverted ones, so stop patting yourself on the back. As long as you have conscious control over a function be it introverted or extroverted, it's just as far away from the unconscious as any other. You seem to be taking the definition of introversion literally in relationship and distance to the unconscious. It seems to me you're even implying that the distance from the unconscious to the conscious is measurable by functions and function order. If that's the case, an introverted perceiving function (IJs/Si or Ni) is closer to the unconscious not a dominant judging function (that includes Ti).

    And by making introversion the default and standard position, you're making any type that isn't deviant from the norm. Maybe Wildcat should jump in on this one, but as he is so fond of stating, introversion and extroversion are the way a person orients themselves to the object. So evidently there's something anchored out there in the real world that we either move towards or away from. Introverts are introverted in comparison to something else. Are you using the unconscious as the starting line? You're playing with a different set of definitions than everyone else.

    Re the OP: how are you defining objectivity? You're putting completely within the realm of thinking (Te or Ti). Why is objectivity only something that thinking can do? It almost seems to me that people assume thinkers are able to completely cut themselves off from subjective influences. Seriously, it's lame. If I'm wrong then please enlighten me, but it seems to me that the implication is feeling values are a smidgen better than instincts and there's no rationale or logic behind them, so they can't possibly be objective. Am I detecting a slight undertone of sexism?

    If you want to compare lengths on which thinking type is the most objective, then I'd say an ETJ. Why, because they typically use clearly observable data/standards that most people can agree on. Ti is no less subjective than the most subjective of functions Fi. And I'd put an ENTP as more objective than an INTP because once again, Ne perceives and connects tangible possibilities. Yeah, I'm using extroversion as my starting point.
    Relationships have normal ebbs and flows. They do not automatically get better and better when the participants learn more and more about each other. Instead, the participants have to work through the tensions of the relationship (the dialectic) while they learn and group themselves and a parties in a relationships. At times the relationships is very open and sharing. Other time, one or both parties to the relationship need their space, or have other concerns, and the relationship is less open. The theory posits that these cycles occur throughout the life of the relationship as the persons try to balance their needs for privacy and open relationship.

    Asking which type is more "objective" is like asking which species of fish is best at math.

    Though one may compare types against each other, nobody is a truly objective thinker. The INTP's dominant thinking mode may make him logical, but he will still be inclined to favor his own logical constructions over others'.

    I don't trust the idea that shunning emotion makes one more objective; I suspect it merely makes one's subjectivity more cerebral.

    I am always amused when Bluewing tries to explain what and how INTPs think, since he inevitably just explains how Bluewing thinks, which has a habit of changing every few months or so. It is even more amusng, because as one who has been described as "INTP as they get", I never agree with his description of what and how I supposedly think. It's just b******t.

    I stand by my original belief that the OP wanted a division on the basis of Functional probability as a determinant for rational pattern creation.

    That said, the Ti is the well-sharpened choice.

    ENTP is clearly more objective than INTP, because extraverted functions are more objective than introverted funtions. Even the ESFJ is more objective than the INTP, although it's a bit like comparing apples to oranges since one is thinking and the other feeling. Comparing apples to apples though Te is more objective than Ti, Ne more objective than Ni, etc...

    Speaking from experience my objectivity comes from observation and not from judgement. All of my subjectivity comes from judgement, from Ti. The ENTJ is the opposite, perceiving subjectively and judging objectively. Don't be fooled by the INTP's logic. It's intense, but it's not objective in the slightest. Focus is not the same as objectivity. In fact the two are not far from being opposites.

    Am I the only one who thinks that this whole discussion is going nowhere fast? There seem to be so many alternative definitions for the same terms that everyone is simply talking past one another.

    I agree, which is what I was starting to get at here:

Just because Feeling is incorporated, it doesn't mean it's the ENTP's own feelings - just the human factor, generally. It's taken into account in ENTP's argument much more than INTP. This could simply mean having a greater diversity of facts at ENTP's fingertips.
    I was beginning by trying to dismantle BlueWing's theory about why ENTP's would be less objective (beginning with challenging his concept/definition of objectivity), but as I was pushed for time I thought I'd think a bit more on the objective qualities and abilities of Feeling functions and get back to it later.

    Uggg! Now I'm late for work. Damn these objectivity vs. subjectivity threads!!

    Hm.. I'm not sure if that was actually the point of it... I suspect the OP's intention was to pit the xNTP's against each other as to which of them, I's or E's, fulfilled most naturally/easily the NTP criteria/definition/ideal of logic and objectivity.

    Well said - same here, the bolded part. Actually most of what I say is just voiced observations, pretty much inviting correction/fine tuning. It often gets mistaken as judgement though, when the observation is of something others judge as not good. I'm not interested in judging it - only in looking at it neutrally and considering its potential.
