Feeler or Thinker?

I edited the About Me section on Facebook, adding:
Visual and Tactile + Feeler *and* Thinker = Designer, in training.
Soon, ended up googling the difference between Feeler and Thinker and found the following:
To describe a Thinker as a Thinker is both honest and affirming, but to describe a Feeler as a Feeler is often felt to be disaffirming or demeaning. Feelers therefore wish to imagine themselves Thinkers, regardless of the facts. Just as there is only one answer to the question, "Are you lying?" (No), regardless of whether the respondent is telling the truth or lying, so also everybody wants to tell you they are a Thinker: the actual Thinkers follow their own values by telling the truth, and the Feelers also affirm their own values in lying about it -- but in doing so they violate the values they falsely claim of themselves.
Hah! The irony! Makes me wonder if I'm a Thinker-wannabe. Probably am! :)


  1. I hope you have tried personality tests.... ...

  2. I have tried them, numerous times. Though I can't say I'm a fan, because I often react differently based on the situation.
