I think for most people respect implies admiration of a person - holding that person in high regard for a quality he possesses. This quality can be something assigned by society (the authority of a police officer, a parent, a superior) or something achieved by the individual (being a well-respected journalist, a humanitarian, a philanthropist).Hellooo ENTJs! I'll be posting this question in some other forums as well, but I'd like to know- what does "respect" mean to you and what does it entail?
For me, it's more about broad ideals and principles (free speech, equality, franchisement). The individuals involved in achieving these ideals aren't really relevant to me. It's the broader picture of the principle that I have respect for.
So, for example, this quote:
"I disapprove of what you say, but will defend to death your right to say it."
has been attriuted to various people. It doesn't matter to me who said it. I don't respect them for having said it. I'm not interested in their "backstory". I'm more interested in, and have respect for, the principle the words represent.
In your research, I think that you'll find that true of Intuitives - more respect for abstract ideas. With Sensors, you'll get more societal examples of whom they respect. :wink:
