Thread: Do you ever wish you had the other Judging function?

    Default Do you ever wish you had the *other* Judging function?

    Any Feelers sick of ethics? Any Thinkers sick of logic? Wish that you were on the other side?

    I'm not bemoaning my destiny in the realm of ethics, but every now and again I do

    Discussion?

    Hmm... *Scratches head* Well, it would be kinda cool to 'try on' one of the types included in the definition of "nerd".

    I do sometimes. I think that's part of the reason I thought I was ENFp for a while; I just wanted to be one.
    But, for a certainty, back then,
    We loved so many, yet hated so much,
    We hurt others and were hurt ourselves...

    Yet even then, we ran like the wind,
    Whilst our laughter echoed,
    Under cerulean skies...

    INFjs are "nerd" too Come on, admit it, Darklord, I challenge you.

    And no, I don't want to change my type. To improve yes, but not to change completely

    I wouldn't want to switch to an ethical type, but I do wish I could crank up my a bit so that I could small talk with people and actually enjoy it. It would make the whole social thing a whole lot easier. Maybe I should try alcohol.

    Using alcohol to solve you social problems = Bad idea.

    Sometimes I would love to be an INTp (I like my too much to wish it away). Of course, the feeling never stays for a long time. As I have said before, is over-rated. It still rocks, though

    What Socionics has taught me - being an ethical type is not as bad as it seems.

    It would be nice to try it out for a few days. Like a tourist. "Interesting place, but I wouldn't want to live there." I'd also like to be a redhead for a few days, or a man, or an Italian, or an athlete, or an alien... lots of things.

    Hm. What do I envy Thinkers for? Mainly their detachment. I wouldn't mind trying that out for a while. Must be like being a submarine. Gliding through the world coolly, seeing everything without being seen, then ocassionally launching a missile, hearing the BANG!!, smiling to oneself, moving on...

    No, I'd like to go the other way though. Try out not feeling at all, that would be cool.
    Yah, I'd be cool to give that a try for a day or two... see what it's like.

    Yes. I've wished I've had , since can be taught while I don't think can be taught.

    I'd like to add that I'm actually really happy to be the feeling type that I am though and I would hate to permanately change. I couldn't see life without the emotion that is so much part of it in my world.

    I never claimed otherwise.

    Well, you could say I’ve been there, where my other rational function took over. I’m currently recovering from it, being that I was years in that mode. It left the other rational function handicapped and now I cannot use it properly. I regret this as I watch other people of my type. I hope things will change with time.

    I can sometimes feel the rift between modes where the need to know is confronted with predefined existence. It is part of my nature now. I can look back and see me behaving as a different person and simply not understand what are or how to explain my thoughts. Feels like trying to understand another individual.

    I fell as I am neither of these types but just wishing I was. I cannot truly relate to or live as either of them because of the other side rejecting the proposed reality.

    Only we're nothing like that. I think you've got us confused with psychotics.
