    If it's properly wielded and needed for the situation. It just depends. If I used my er..."feelings" to make every decision, then I'd be a real mess now, wouldn't I? Anyone would be.

    This.

    A lot of the time we see the logic of people (which for T types feels alien or wrong to consider). I like putting it this way: "people are inheriently illogical, and there for will be logical with their illogic."

    A lot of people cant differentiate between logic and opinion as if logic has a single path. Logic will lead people astray just as quick as feelings if not wielded correctly.

    And Thinkers are fully capable of mistaking their personal opinions for logic.

    They actually tend to be the worst IMHO. I was actually thinking of T types when I made that statement, the T types who "preach being logical" the most.

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    On a serious note, logical reasoning is only as good as the presuppositions upon which it is based.

    Therefore, being logical ≠ being right.

    ^Definitely this. If you come to some conclusion based on false premises or even questionable ones then your entire argument just burns to ash.

    Edit: Adding an example for clarification.
    Let's say you come across a person who makes this hypothetical argument: All Feelers (F) are Not Rational (R), otherwise written as F → ¬R. Let's say person x is a Feeler, so an F. It logically follows that they are Not Rational (¬R). So our argument goes as follows:

    F → ¬R
    F
    --
    ¬R

    (Otherwise read aloud as "If F, then not R. F, therefore not R."

    Which is a completely valid argument... but it is not sound, because this is ASSUMING that the premises are both true, which they could very well be false.
