When the two are in difficult aspect and function separately, the native experiences two distinct and contradictory pieces of information. 

The decision-making process becomes more difficult because of the split. The tendency is to arrive at two mutually exclusive conclusions. For example, you might believe what you are told by others even though your intuition tells you differently. You might hate your job, want to quit and change professions, but your logical mind favors the security of a stable income and position. 

While there is a split in your assessment of any situation, you are more likely to receive and give off mixed messages unless there is a dominant mode, either thinking or feeling. If thinking is dominant, you might consciously override or suppress your feelings and emotional needs. On the other hand, if feelings are dominant, you may react without thinking. 

The key to using this aspect positively is to understand that you have two separate and distinct sources for information, one rational and one emotional, and two separate and distinct ways of acting in the world. You need to evaluate all input before reacting to events and circumstances even if this slows your response time. Actively seek out more information through feedback discussions with others, joumaling, and meditation.
