Judgment functions are not perceiving functions, you don't perceive through emotions, you may judge and act on information based on something other than logos. Reason being in charge of passions is an inborn trait. Plato expressed this very NT way of being in the tripartite theory of the soul:I'm not sure about them actively controlling their emotional side, it's rather an underdevelopment of that function. Control should not be equated to ineptitude, people who control their emotions have only done so through resillience and exposure, to that regard Ts have typically had little exposure because of their dominant functions. Lack of perception =/= Control.
- logos is located in the head, is related to reason and regulates the other part.
- thymos is located near the chest region and is related to anger.
- eros is located in the stomach and is related to one's desires.
I don't use reason because it's more practical or efficient, thinking isn't just utilitarian. That is a mistake of culture, of modernity. It is not my problem ppl nowadays throw metaphysics out the window... m-muh materialist utiliatrianism.
^^ funny that this way of thinking is reflected in christianity's trinity. It says something fundamental about us.
In a thinker the higherarchy is Reason > Spirit > Desire.
In a feeler it's Spirit > Reason > Desire.
If you act out of passion & its a habit, you are a feeler. Now I have no way of knowing, can only rely on what you tell me. It all depends on how honest you can be with yourself.
^^ now its understandable that if you are in love or something, you aren't going to be reasonable at all. I mean, the first time I fell in love with a woman I did a lot of unreasonable crazy shit I don't regret... cus it got me dat pusi ^^.. and you know I'm all abut dat pusi.
In such a case Desire shoved spirit and reason out the window. Its a moment in time where a young man finally comprehends .. why Troy was sacked.
