    Default The Dual-type as shaper of philosophy

    In a moment of introspection today, I realized something about myself: I see goodness as justification for experiencing positive things. Goodness is a relative attribute of beta Ni: to the extent that one has intent to be kind to others, one is good.

    I believe goodness and psychological balance (sanity) are key to a number of virtues:
    - Being good and sane is the way to be smart (Ti)
    - Being good and sane is the way to be thought well of (Fe)
    - Being good and sane entitles one to aid (Si) and means one is beautiful
    - The good and sane can count on success (Te and Ni)
    - Being good and sane makes one desired for relationships (Fi)
    - The good and sane should have rights that are respected (Se)
    - The good and sane are the most capable, and are the most worth thinking about (Ne)


    To an extent that a person is not good and sane, they are neither entitled to nor necessarily should expect any of the above.

    Now here's something I absolutely don't believe should be the case:

    - Being beautiful, stylish, and fun is the way to be smart (Ti)
    - Being beautiful, stylish, and fun is the way to be thought well of (Fe)
    - Being beautiful, stylish, and fun entitles you to aid (Si)
    - The beautiful, stylish, and fun can count on success (Te and Ni)
    - Being beautiful, stylish, and fun makes one desired for relationships (Fi)
    - Being beautiful, stylish, and fun entitles one to rights and respect (Se)
    - The beautiful, stylish, and fun are the most capable, and the most worth thinking about (Ne)

    You can see the pattern: maintenance of the dominant EM function is the key to living a good life, while the unvalued functions are seen as comparatively superfluous. We have a tendency to believe that our strong EM functions should be valued over the weaker ones, and as such, should go unmaintained in favor of the strong functions.

    Instead of giving you a formal diagnosis, I'm going to try to offer enough information that you can make a self-diagnosis.

    Not quite sure how the comparisons among functions are being made, but it's very interesting to read.

    Respect for critical thinking.

    Check that: sanity arises from the choice of choosing to think critically about one's own arguments.
