PS: perhaps there's something inherently 'vaguely insulting' about different types talking about each other without 100% understanding, even without meaning to offend...??
Okay, the thing is, I didn't... take it PERSONALLY? And I don't even disagree with the analysis that rationals tend to think objectivity is superior and emotive thinkers tend to be prickly and defensive - I think that's true? What it really was, I guess, was that as stated it sounded like you were trying to say there was something wrong with being a rational or an emotive thinker? Like, I recognize where my statement could be taken poorly, but just prior to that I'd just gotten through saying that whichever view people are inclined to is going to be the one they considered coolest and that's just subjective. So there's no like, real way to reasonably think that I'm saying that all emotions are useless to everyone ever.
I actually think, though, that it might be the emotive vs. rational thing in play RIGHT NOW. Because I tend to take statements as literal/objective unless disclaimed, because I am naturally inclined toward thinking in objective terms, whereas you probably figured it was a given that if you're talking it's your subjective statement about whatever subject you're thinking about at the time?
