So there are many stereotypes floating about when it comes to "feelers" - that they are (overly) sensitive, emotional and even downright illogical. Yet more "official" descriptions I have seen say that having a feeling preference is actually about focusing on values, for example
"The Feeling function looks at the values and relative merit of the issues. In order to make this kind of comparative analysis Feeling relies on having an understanding of the values of all involved. Whereas Thinking is more objective, Feeling is more subjective. The MBTI Manual (Myers, McCauley, Quenk and Hammer) quotes Jung “Feeling, like Thinking, is a rational function, since values in general are assigned according to the laws of reason.”
All this makes me a bit confused about what it really means to have a preference for feeling. Is it as simple as listening to the heart more than the head, and is there really a connection between having a preference for feeling and being more emotional? What does your feeling (or thinking) preference mean to you?
