    Default Has to feel right

    What type is it that what they do has to feel right? They can't just continually do something if they're not in the mood for it. It doesn't matter if it makes logical sense, or ethical sense, this person has to feel in the mood or else they will have trouble. They could keep going, but they don't because it feels wrong, and they strongly value feeling right about what they're doing. It's not necessarily a matter of ethics, but the personal feeling behind it. This type of person is usually very skilled at something and can accomplish the unthinkable (even more so than others) when their mood is just right. I sort of see the caricature of a melancholic and an idealist, but you think this is type related? (at least in specific cases or stages)

    I think it correlates with irrational types.

    Rationality and irrationality - Wikisocion

    Irrationals
    (Sometimes called 'cyclothymes' in early socionics literature)
    1. Focus on their own moods and states of mind and what they feel like saying or doing
    2. Try to change their activity to fit their state of mind
    3. Tend to neglect and forget traditions (repeating activities involving other people) and instead act on their impulses
    4. Try to make life spontaneous by breaking traditions and habits for the sake of spontaneity
    5. Dislike long-term obligations but freely take on short-term obligations if they feel like it
    6. Intellectually, usually believe that things are naturally the way they are, and that mankind should recognize and accept that
    7. More artful at "going with the flow" and change their strategy more quickly

    ha - I read those, about the rationals changing their mood to fit the task and thought, "Really?? People can do that? I need to try that.." It's the source of endless frustration for me - being a slave to my whims when I have paperwork to finish, questions to answer, phone calls to make and I JUST DON'T FEEL LIKE IT. But if it doesn't get done, I'm in big trouble. haha

    I'm just wondering if anybody agrees with that. I strongly depend on my state of mind and mood, yet I'm definitely Fe PoLR. Say for example that I have to write music, I can't do it if I'm not in the mood, but when I am it flows through me so naturally and it comes out excellently. It's even the same way with video games, I'm usually not in the mood to play. However I do know that a lot of this stuff listed isn't all conclusive about types, but I'm sure it fits to some extent. Looking at these, every dichotomy fits me well.

    I have a lot of trouble starting something if I'm not in the mood. Once I've started I have no problem.

    yeah...it's kinda like you have to trick yourself into doing things you don't feel like. i'll invite people over so i'll clean the house, for example. lol. or let things totally build up to a chaotic state, have a free weekend, and get it all done.

    this issue is worse for irrationals than rationals i think.

    I think everybody is like this. However, it's also bullshit. Most of the time, you do to feel better. It's rarely the other way around, you feel better, so you can do. Cause what happens is, you will feel GREAT but still, nothing ever gets done, cause when it comes down to it, an action is an action, and doesn't really have anything to do with your feelings. ENNEAGRAM 4S I LOVE YOU BUT PLEASE TAKE NOTE OF THIS!

    So the real issue is you haven't really decided on what you want to 'go after yet' or do. But often times you gotta try it and see. You can't always believe what your mind is telling you about something. Even your 'gut' can be wrong. A lot of good advice is actually extremely counter-intuitive.

    Sanctioned.

    I'm supposedly Rational, but I identify with this to a very large extent. It's easy to figure out what's going on from there.

    Well is it true that Fe types will try to cheer things up when they feel sad or low-spirited, where as Fi strategy is to really think about ones feelings and get to the source of the problem. Obviously both people do that, but Fe strategy is not something I ever do, and EXTp don't really think deeply about their feelings to get to the source of the problem.
