Favouring Thinking as a Cognitive Style


Active member

I have been wondering about the favouring of thinking as a cognitive style, this is in the MBTI sense but also more generally.

Do you think that the deliberate favouring of a thinking style could involve some sort of identification of feeling with harmful emotional flooding? Therefore the "priding" of thinking/cognitions is a result of unconsciously repressing feeling?

This in theory results in responding to conflict with fawning, flattering and reasoning. Also the projecting aggression onto others which the mind cannot deal with existing in the self or being exhibited by the self. Do you think this is the case? Or possible?
