It can be, most definitely. At it's essence, I believe that's what it is. There is this notion, and Jung defines it thus, that Fe is about what is expected, and oriented by objective data, not necessarily what is felt. I disagree. I think Fe can be about what is expected, and perhaps that takes precedence in many situations, granted; but Fe is usually genuinely felt (subjectively) by Fe-ers. Jung states:
Her personality appears adjusted in relation to external conditions. Her feelings harmonize with objective situations and general values. This is seen nowhere more clearly than in her love choice: the "suitable" man is loved, and no one else; he is suitable not because he appeals to her hidden subjective nature--about which she usually knows nothing--but because he comes up to all reasonable expectations in the matter of age, position, income, size and respectability of his family; etc. Once could easily reject sucha picture as ironical or cynical, but i am fully convincecd that the love feeling of this type of woman is in perfect accord with her choice......These women are good companions and excellent mothers so long a sthe husbands and children are blessed with the conventional psychic constitution.
Come on. And the rest of Jung's Fe definition isn't much better. This is how you define Fe? This is how you want me to define Fe? As some sort of Stepford Wife, exemplified in the Good Wife Model? Going through the objective motions, but never feeling anything subjectively, unless she over-extraverts feeling, and then she becomes 'hysterical.'
