The logical thinker may unconsciously view the feeling person as inane; the feeling person may believe the logical thinker is insensitive.
Opposite qualities in our mates are likely perceived as negatives that need to be changed instead of strengths we do not possess. Although the logical planner may be weaker in empathizing with people, planning and organizing are, nonetheless, strong points. On the other hand, life without a little spontaneity can be dull.
