Feelers listen to what their values tell them is the right thing to do, and they listen to their intuition. Those aren't things that can be plotted on a chart or graph, but they are often just as valid as the analyst's data. Hunter-Gatherer or Settler?

That's fine, just so long as you've stopped to think about what you're doing and aren't merely acting on impulse.
