    Here are two common qualities I see in people today.

    theres the haus of emotional intelligence where people feel their ways through life and are in tune, empathic and ever so slightly telepathic when it comes to other peoples feelings, these people are not ashamed or afraid of emotions.

    Then theres the the Detatched, scientific, highly intuitive, objective way of looking at the world, these people are usually found with a clip board or are pondering the novel sentiment of humanity.

    Do you fall into any of these groups or both? and if not what group would you say has better merits when it comes to this day and age.......I am able to give more examples what detatched and emotional means.

    I try to work on both. When it works, knowing how to relate to people and situations *both* intellectually and emotionally makes life much more enjoyable. When it doesn't, you've at least doubled your odds of relating on at least one level. Even if you achieve neither, you've now got two mistakes to learn from instead of just one.

    The weird part is that when I'm trying to relate to a situation that's purely rational or purely emotional, I end up feeling like I have to bottle up and repress the side of me that doesn't apply. icon_smile.gif

    It's like the Myers-Briggs Thinker vs Feeler debate. Contrary to popular stereotypes, a majority of gay men are thinking types.

    I'd say I'm emotional and its foolish to believe either is better than the other. However do to our materialistic society detached people are much more likely to prosper.

    Depends who I am with. If I don't know a person, I'm 'aloof' and appear detached. Once I get to know a person and have trust in them, then I show them my in-sides.

    What happens when these "insides" are exposed?

    Typically nothing good comes from it.

    Or as I prefer to say 'This isn't going to end well.'

    Well I'm weird because I don't fit that well into either.
    I feel my emotions and take them into consideration, but I never base any decision I make solely based on them.
    I choose which ever I think will benefit me in the long run, and if it's something that I really want then I have to compromise for the next best alternative.

    I am naturally quite indifferent sometimes when it comes to people, so I feel like I'm detached, not really that scientific, and I know for a fact I'm not highly intuitive.
    I'm usually the guy that gets the joke last or needs something explained again haha, which I can admit that.
    I suppose I do look at the world objectively, but in the sense that I always make plans for the 'worst case scenario' so that anything above that just works out better than I had planned.

    Yeah I think I'm definitely not normal.

    I'm more detached. It's not that I don't care, I don't show my emotions easily unless it's something or someone I'm passionate about. And that takes time. Guys freaked me out after one or two dates when they went all emotional on me in the past.

    Emotional by nature, but "detached" or "logical" via legal training.

    Result: I can see the world both ways, it can serve me well depending on the circumstances at hand.
