    Many of the popular descriptions beget popular notions that aren't based on reality. Such as that Sensors can't contemplate anything, and Feelers can't use logic. Which itself results in people thinking they can't be the type they actually are. It's a problem.

    Well there are too many absolutes there, for one thing. This comes back to one of my main, recurring points. It will be hard to make use of any of this until someone comes up with a clear and consisten means of quantification.

    Can we measure use of Feeling? And how much Feeling does someone have to use compared to Thinking in order to be a Feeler?

    True, though I do think that profiles that focus on intertype differences, especially when it comes to differences along any of the dichotomies, tend to imply that the differences are more rigid than they actually are IRL.

    It can be observed...I can't describe it though. The way I like to think of the preferences is of overlapping timelines split into 2/3 and 1/3. So...for an INTP, say...

    2/3 time is spent Perceiving (N/S), and 1/3 Judging (T/F)

    2/3 of Perceiving time is N, 1/3 is S

    2/3 of Judging time is T, 1/3 is F.

    It works for me.

    It don't work for me.

    "You're a thinker? How the hell does that work?"

    "I only use F when I'm at work, I'm T at home and sleeping. "

    Yeah...no.

    I don't know. She's extroverted, and I see feeling as an underlying motivation, not the one she's primarily working in.

    Not like PinkP, or someone else similar, for example.

    I'm fine with her running off an extroverted perceptive function.
