My mother is ISTJ and gets all of her information from three places: 1) Fox News, 2) Eternal Word Television Network, and 3) various alternative health resources. However, she seems to be always right. For instance, just recently, because of all the negative media on Fox News, she was advising me not to get a COVID vaccine. I got the vaccine, got really sick, and - whoops - once again, she was right.
I, however, try to reason in a scientific way: in this case, my reasoning is as follows:
The number of cases of COVID are dwindling.
It is probably because of the vaccine.
The vaccine is therefore working.
However, there are still active COVID cases out there.
Therefore, since the vaccine seems to be working, and since there are still active cases, to err on the safe side, I should still get the vaccine.
Then we look at the overall results:
My reasoning: 0
Fox News: +1000
I mean she is ISTJ, but can somebody explain how somebody who tries to reason in a logical way is always wrong, and somebody whose information sources are garbage is always right...
(This is not about socionics - period, unless that explains this somehow...)
