    Default logic

    There seems to be some confusion at present about what exactly "logic" is. Recent examples include talk about logical consistency and attention to logic.

    4. a system of reasoning
    5. the system of operations performed by a computer that underlies the machine's representation of logical operations

    As you can see, "logic" as defined by the English language is something that everyone uses in some manner. People's personal logic is simply whatever makes sense to them or in their situation. Unfortunately, socionics uses a lot of words which can be misleading as names for various things, such as dichotomies and functions (perhaps partially due to the language barrier). This leads to a lot of confusion, and miscommunications result.

    Consistency in one's reasoning can be due to many factors, such as intelligence, environment, experience in debates, education, rationality/irrationality, etc.

    is this because of dj's type thread?

    I think only 4. of the definition you posted is similar to what you said. Also I think being consistent is definitely different than valuing or getting angry at violation of it. Not to say anything about the type.

    I actually am always interested in discussing systems of logic. *bumps thread*

    Yeah, 4. fits what I was talking about best... the point is that the definition of logic includes it, not that it's limited to that. And this isn't solely because of Peter's type thread. There are some PM conversations behind it as well, mostly talking about the differences between ESTps and ESFps, something I've recently discussed with several different people via PM.

    Sure, any type can use logic. INFj's excelled at excercizes in formal logic assignments in the last class involving such that I have attended. But what should be kept in mind is that logic always presupposes a premise of some kind, and it is the thinking functions that provide such. In the end it may yet be that the T types are the only ones that get to 'use' their logic in day to day affairs, whereas F types spend their days wondering how to excercize their logic on a set of misaligned, chaotic, gradual variables that give them no footing of certainty of any kind or other.

    Logical types often seem to have a strange internal sense of confidence about the correctness of their conclusions even when they are not backed up by any reliable data or foolproof reasoning. Sometimes it appears annoying, often times enviable.
