feeling (Jungian)

One of the four psychic functions according to Jung's model of psychological types. It is a rational (i.e., judgmental) function that determines value and promotes personal relationship. Feeling is not to be confused with emotion, which results from the activation of a complex. Its polar opposite is the thinking function.
