I am having great issue with this because of the way that I am reading the words "choose to be insensitive". From this, I gather the impression that others feel rationals don't care about other people's feelings and choose to hurt them deliberately, that is to say with intent. I don't believe most rationals set out to hurt people. What we do is value something else more at a given point than a person's feelings. Rationals can be nurturing and diplomatic when that is "the mission". But more often than not, something else is more important than feelings, and sometimes I believe other types make an unfair value-based judgment because of that.
Also, wouldn't it be up to us
to say what is misconceived? How can I tell you which perceptions of you that I have are misconceptions? You know what I am getting wrong, not me.
