    Smile The Opposite of Truth

    Ti is the “Truth” function, right? So is Fe the lying function?

    I see you're late to the party. They even changed the word "fake" in the dictionary to "feke". Like ....ten thousand years ago!!!

    No such thing. (How schizo would that be?)

    Wait, you mean this?

    Ti = Truthiness
    Fe = Feeliness
    Se = Sexiness
    Ni = Nixieness
    Ne = Nerfiness
    Fi = Finickiness
    Si = Sinceriness
    Te = Twerpiness

    .... or probably not.

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    Incorrect antonym. My Ti says so. Furthermore, each judging function only determines what it determines to pass judgement with respect to itself, not other judging functions. Ti evaluates validity vs invalidity, with reference to an internalised model of comprehension. This can be taken as truth vs falsity if you like, but the distinction only holds true with respect to the framework against which validity is evaluated, so the truth value of a Ti derived evaluation is as meaningful as the framework on which it is based.

    What do you think Fe evaluates again, and how does it form its categorical distinctions?

    I didn't really want to get too much into what I think. Mostly because I know what I think but I don't know what others think. That's why I phrased the OP as a question.

    But just for you. The thought occurred to me whilst watching The Invention of Lying. And also a thread on INTPc about being INTP and unapproachable. What would the world look like if lying were impossible? Turns out it would look a lot like an Aspie ward.
    Even fake smiling is lying, when you think about it - if you're not happy, you're lying about your emotional state to make other people feel comfortable. Most Dom-Tis (with undeveloped Fe) seem to have a problem with faking emotions or faking interest in something/one they're not interested in. A lot of social niceties are based on less than total honesty. Maybe that's why they are so problematic for us. It's not a lack of empathy or a lack of knowledge of the kind of behaviour that is deemed socially acceptable - it's just that such behaviour is directly opposed to the raison d'etre of Ti.
    I just found the connection interesting...

    Rationale doesn't equate to truth. Social harmony isn't equivalent to falsehood.

    Ti does not equal truth. Most times it doesn't even mean logic.
