This is continued from a thread in another section. It had changed focus significantly, and I thought it would be useful to discuss it here:
**"NFs come up with their Ideals on their own, whereas SJs get their Values from somewhere else."**
The problem with this statement is that most SJs themselves do not agree with it. That's predictable; after all, society usually considers lack of independent thought a flaw. (And yet, they still expect you to follow rules. ) Is it that most SJs don't even realize they're doing it? Or could it often be much more subtle than the kind of "upholding traditions" that we're usually thinking about? Why is there a split between our theory and reality?
Unfortunately, it doesn't help that there are many more NFs than SJs on the board, so it's hard to get a general idea of the SJ interpretation. It's hard to see something through someone else's eyes... (not whining)
