    Default Is it possible to convince Fs with Logic?

    The title says it all.
    I've noticed Fs don't care about logic (the best thing there is) and I have this question to all Fs.

    Is it possible to convince Fs with Logic?

    Yes, this can actually screw them up depending on how they perceive logic and utilize it. They can be lead astray easily by half ass logic sometimes. Depends on person, not all Fs.

    Logic:

    Thinking vs Feeling: How MBTI Type Impacts Decisions - Branding, Predictive Analytics, FIRO MBTI TKI

    Do not get caught up in the usual definitions of Thinking and Feeling. Too often, people will go, “Well, I rely on reason, not feelings–so that must mean I am in the Thinking group.” This is NOT what these functions mean. They are both intellectual processes. Thinking is an objective function where the focus is only on the desired outcome, so envision Thinking as being like a military strategy process. Feeling is a subjective function where values and participant impact are considered, so envision Feeling as being like a political strategy process. We all Think and we all Feel–the difference is only in which process you go to first.

    Your quote is more what the average person utilizes each function for, not what it actually is. Politics is crap, not really an F or T thing. Ts seem to flock to politics more because it has "strategy", Fs just get "moved"(both good and bad) by it.

    So, I'm an ENFP and a software engineer. Not only do I care deeply about logic, but unlike even a lot of T's, I actually understand it and where it is applicable. What this means is that if you know your stuff you can convince me that A and B mean C, but that doesn't mean that I have to give a shit about C when I want Z, or that A and B are the only starting points.

    Everybody can logic, they just have different endgames.

    of course, but that doesnt mean that i think logic is relevant to every situation either.

    It works as a metaphor, IMO. I would suspect that interest in politics is not MBTI related, because there are such a wide variety of reasons to be interested in politics. But I thought the metaphors in that quote were good shorthand for the different types of logical reasoning required.

    ^This. Also, being an F doesn't necessarily mean they don't "care" about logic either. Sorry for using myself as an example, but up until the end of college I was literally a supplemental instructor for philosophy of logic and held help sessions for students who were having a hard time understanding it... which were not just Fs, but Ts as well.

    Being a Feeler doesn't render one incapable of understanding logic. They don't ignore the facts of a situation; they're just more likely than Thinkers to take into account the people in a situation as well.

    It can be an advantage, for sure. An advantage I wish I had sometimes. /robot
