    Default NTs and their Perception of the Golden Rule

    NTs, what's your view of the Golden Rule, "Do unto others as others unto you,"? Does your auxiliary Te/Ti function approach the Golden Rule based on factual information as opposed to humanitarian information? I'm quite curious to see how you NTs approach ethical questions/problems.

    i dont like it as a rule for its more complicated than that, it all depends on the deed done, the situation it was done in, the people involved and the relationship between the people (etc. I who "it" has been done to and the one I would retaliate on).

    How much WoW credit does trading in the golden rule give you? That's an important consideration.

    It is one of the "foundational" things in my life, that I try to consciously work out each and every day. That's not to say that I do it perfectly (there are always new things that I'm seeing in myself where I don't treat people the way I'd like to be treated), but it is indeed very important to me. I believe that if everyone did this, there would be much less need for government, managers, law enforcement, courts, etc. Simply put, the world would be a happier place.

    Add: I would think it would be very widely accepted amongst NT's, since it also holds true logically that it would make the world a better place to live. If all of your neighbors really did to you what they would want done unto themselves, think about how good you would have it. You'd have dinners being brought to you. If the newspaper guy threw your paper on the curb instead of by your door, an early-morning walker would pick it up and throw up on your porch. If your car broke down on the side of the freeway, someone who knew a lot about cars would stop and help you. If you were tight on money and people knew it someone would say "let me pay your light bill this month", etc, etc, etc, ad finitum. It makes sense then, for us to want to do the same for others - even if we know they wouldn't do it for us.

    It really depends.

    Do you have concrete situations, which you can ask us about?

    well, just looking at the phrasing and words would seem to indicate that the command is suggesting that we are supposed to do for others what we'd hope they'd do for us... which I used to interpret when younger that the bible thought I should do to others what I'd like to have done with me... whether they wanted me to or not!

    now I realize that's not apparently what it's supposed to mean, which makes it a lot less fun

    never heard about that kind of rule, imo that rule of yours sounds pretty damn stupid, must be some american thing. where i live we say: dont do enything to others that you wouldnt want to be done to you.

    The rule is actually "do unto others as you would want done unto you".

    The bolded part was not included in the original post.
