    Things are so ruled by emotion that the one thing which accomplishes nothing - apathy - stands out as being exceptional. Even the most die hard thinker can't really be entirely apathetic about it, otherwise they wouldn't bother in the first place.

    I'd daresay that the ones who do the hardest thinking are highly invested in strict emotions.
    I started a thread someplace asking whether or not the rise of emotional intelligence theories would ultimately benefit F types.
    All for ourselves, and nothing for other people, seems, in every age of the world, to have been the vile maxim of the masters of mankind.

    whether or not you credit psychoanalysis itself, the fact remains that we all must, to the greatest extent possible, understand one another's minds as our own; the very survival of humanity has always depended on it. - Open Culture

    I suppose it depends on how much mileage said F-types are able to get out of that propaganda. Those theories read a bit like wishful thinking to me. Most outcomes can be obtained through standard logical processes.
    I've been called a criminal, a terrorist, and a threat to the known universe. But everything you were told is a lie. The truth is, they've taken our freedom, our home, and our future. The time has come for all humanity to take a stand...

    It depends on that theories are your go to positions, I certainly dont accept a lot of the gender bias ones and do think they are similar to some other "end of history" bad thinking or pomo navel gazing.

    On the other hand they've done a lot in the way of identifying predatory behaviour and types discussing functional behaviour etc.

    I am not sure what you mean here. Do you refer to theories that associate certain types of emotional behavior with each gender? What is "end of history" bad thinking, or "pomo navel gazing" for that matter? What kind of predatory behavior do you mean, and what has helped identify it - theories of emotional intelligence?
