A feeling is a sensation related to one of several senses (tactition, thermoception, nociception, equilibrioception, proprioception, see also qualia) or is an emotion.

Feeling is one of the four axes of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator.

In the MBTI, feeling means one tends to process thoughts in an emotional way rather than a logical way. F's think more in shades of grey than black or white. To the ears of an 'F', the sentences "The sky is blue." and "That girl is fat." though both factual, are not perceived as such facts, rather, the 'F' hears, "It is a beautiful day." and "I hate that girl." Feeling is also called picture thinking.
