    Mind and heart. Equally. I want to be seen as a whole person, and I want to be cared for, not just admired.

    It's pretty empty to be admired for physical appearance only.

    Very magnanimous post, but fails to answer the topic thread.

    Is it pretty empty to be valued for heart only?

    Is it pretty empty to be valued for mind only?

    Mind first.

    And heart in the core. You just have to penetrate my mind far enough to get to it.

    Read between the lines. If I didn't think it would be empty to be valued only for my mind, wouldn't I have just chosen "mind?"

    i tend to think that the essence of an NT's heart lies in what they apply their minds to.

    thus when i appreciate their minds i am really appreciating their hearts and vice versa. cold-hearted scheming is impressive but not valued.

    so i think mind versus heart is a false dichotomy.

    body is just icing on the cake

    Then why not just say none of 3 is more important?
