Thinking Feeling MBTI

The third dichotomy explores how we prefer to make decisions. In this model these differences are termed Thinking (T) and Feeling (F).

Jung described this as the ‘judging‘ function. ‘Judging’ in this context to desribe decision making. As decision making functions, Thinking and Feeling aim to make rational decisions based on the information gathered by the ‘perceiving’ functions, S and N.
