    People who make decisions with feelings are idiots

    Why is our world so messed up? Because 70% of people are sensors and feelers. They have failed in being human because the difference between an animal and a human is abstract thought (neocortex). If I hurt your feelings, that just proves my point in how selfish you are, if you'd rather suppress the truth to avoid criticism.

    I don't believe personalities are set in stone. I believe it's only the result of which part of the brain you're using. I can be a temporary ESFJ if I want to. To think otherwise is ridiculous.

    Right. Okay. Well I'd like you to study life a little more.

    I'm thinking very young NT.

    Possibly even young ST.

    How did I know it was you?

    "F's" don't make decisions based on feelings. They make them from an ethical stand point.

    Why is our world messed up? Oh let me count the ways...

    As for feelers... I trust some of them to screw up less than some thinkers, which seems to be based on experience in dealing with them, which suggests thinkers can and do screw up too.

    As to the opening post... sounds like feelings.

    So decisions like destroying forests, carbon footprint, oil spill in oceans, industrial steady destruction of nature and environment are decisions made by sensors feelers? I don't think these decisions were anything but very cold hearted - profit oriented and not in the least concerned about feelings.

    Haha so you hurt my feelings, and i'm selfish? do you need a hug? do you feel a little grumpy? (i hope you don't get offended by the word "feel" )

    Yeah, it's not set in stone, you can deal with things with any kind of function and you can develop all functions. But there'd always be a preference, which functions do you prefer to use. If you make a choice of being someone, who'd you rather be? I'd rather be myself. I'd rather do the things that i do naturally and effortlessly, what's ingrained in me is the easiest way to be.

    The planet doesn't have feelings.

    That statement of fact doesn't mean I don't care about the planet.

    As to feeling sensors making those decisions... based on the people I have worked with in the past, yes, I could imagine them making similar decisions. I've never really thought about it until now... and my conclusion saddens me.

    let me point out your errors: "if i feel so, I AM!"

    "Why is our world so messed up? Because 70% of people are sensors and feelers. They have failed in being human because the difference between an animal and a human is abstract thought (neocortex). "

    you just used feeler logic yourself.. =) (hypocrite)

    a person who uses their T function properly, would realize, that everything is set in stone, except feelings. (this includes, ahem, your type!)

    "If I hurt your feelings, that just proves my point in how selfish you are, if you'd rather suppress the truth to avoid criticism."

    now that ive criticesed you, i hope you dont break your _promise_.

    Yep, all these things are done by either sensors, feelers and/or extraverts. Because they lack the ability of abstract reflection which causes their blindness of the impact of their actions on others and the environment. Their thinking is very short-term, limited to their subjective perception. They don't see the harm of profit, because they simply can't imagine the consequences abstractly. A thinker on the other hand is not cold (but not warm either). If you see a cold thinker, that's not a thinker, but the dark side (alter ego) of a feeler. My sister is a sensor and a feeler. She is the coldest person I know. A total icequeen towards the people she dislikes, but when I see her with her friends, she is transformed into a warm, loving butterfly. Hot and cold are two sides of the same coin. Hence, all these cold apathic actions are done by feelers.

    Soldiers in Iraq are also sensors and feelers. They believe they are doing God's work, protecting beauty and freedom. They must be icecold to the people they kill as to protect those they love at home. You won't find thinkers or intuitives in a soldier's uniform. They question their commanders too much.

    Also, you are an NF. Intuition is your dominant function, not feeling. Intuition is the perceiving counterpart of thinking. Hence, my post is not directed at you, which is evidenced by the fact that you can still smile after being criticized.

    I literally cannot find two fucks to rub together in regards to your opinion. Not that I've cared to search for them either.
