    You appear to have a very limited vocabulary and lack the ability to identify the correct responses for a variety of different questions. A deficient vocabulary can hinder you in many ways; you may struggle to find the correct words when speaking, fail to understand what others are communicating to you, or come across as inarticulate to others.

    I know what you mean, sort of. But I believe that's reflected Fe, not Fi. I don't know for certain, but that's what I think. It's like I project emotion outwardly, and then I analyze the instinctive "tint" of the perceived emotion from the environment against my memories I've previously established as reflective of what I normally evaluate things as, and interpret the difference as part of my internal emotional state. The more "mirrors" or people I interact with, the better my understanding of that emotion. I can also pick up on it from reflections on Ni, though ideas, which facilitates things. It's hard to describe.

    I'm pretty sure it's Fi. I do this a lot when I design things. I have a feeling inside my head which I try to visualize. It's a delicate process because Ti can so easily tear the feeling into pieces.

    How do you know that it's Feeling and not Intuition? Unless the thing you are designing is based on emotion?

    The things I design are based on emotions.
    The design process goes like this:
    My heads fills up with feeling tones which evolve into complex images/symphonies of feelings - not like lucid dreaming but a similar mode. Often very intense and delightfull. When the feeling image in my head reach perfection I gently apply Ti and try to visualize it. Sometimes I can't visualize the feeling inside my head and have to let it go. I'm very truthfull in this process, if the feeling I have in mind doesn't match what I am able to create physically - I discard it.

    As a Tertiary Function, Fi typically leads ITJs to retreat into solitary actions that have no constructive worldly effect but are aimed at providing a justification for calling themselves good people. Another example is obsession with the purity of one's soul. For example, being a vegetarian while working at Taco Bell--not out of any great love for animals (the person might hardly know anything about what cows are like), but to be able to say, "Well, at least I never ate any animals." Or engaging in pointless acts of honor, like maintaining super-self-control or "doing one's duty" or going down with the ship. Nothing is gained by going down with the ship; it's a hyper-introverted act aimed at providing a rationalization for one's goodness without regard to real-world consequences. Nearly all of these tertiary-Fi acts involve refraining from action viewed as unethical rather than taking positive action that would accomplish something. They're a retreat from the world--or rather, a rationalization for disregarding worldly matters.
    wow...so true...especially the going down the ship part...

    INFJ here... maybe I can provide some sort of insight on tertiary Ti.

    I find my Ti shows up when I am analyzing how I feel. If something happens, I immediately project (and act upon) feeling and then detach and analyze them to bits. Sometimes after analyzation, I end up having a completely different perception of what is going on. However, during the analyzation, I don't actually "feel" the feelings. I'm not comparing them to any sort of moral values - I'm more picking them apart. It's like I'm using my Fe immediately in the situation and then switch into the Ti to analyze the situation and then flip back to Fe to handle the situation. Hopefully that made some sort of sense. It tends to confuse the people around me.

    My Ti also shows up when I'm stuck on an idea & I start analyzing everything in accordance with it. I do this with type theory occasionally - i'll start mentally typing everyone around me & attributing their behaviors to their cognitive functions. It's like I get stuck in an analyzation trap. I'm not sure how this compares to someone with a dominant Ti, but I usually have no idea how to get out of the trap.

    My Ti also shows up when I am stressed. I will literally be paralyzed by analyzation and it's usually the only time I cannot make decisions. I'll just keep thinking and thinking and thinking about the same subject and never actually act on it or come to any sort of conclusions. If I do act on it, it tends to be spontanously (that may be the inferior Se coming out as well) and insensitively. In other words, I end up dominated by a negative form of Ti.

    Another way it may manifest is when I am upset, I tend to try to get as far away from a situation as possible and then I'll start the analyzation process. However, I never do this gracefully & it usually involves completely shutting people out of my life - which is the opposite of what I initially do. So, I'll be completely connected to someone in every way possible and then something happens & I completely shut them out while I'm analyzing the problem. I'd think this may be the tertiary Ti manifesting it's ugly head as well - but I could be wrong.

    And I may be way off with this one...

    If any other INFJ's have problems saying how they feel in a romantic situation - I've read this may be common among us - would you chalk it up to Fe or possibly our tertiary Ti working with Fe? I find I do things to show I care - such as handmade cards, cooking dinner for others, etc. My actions are charged by Fe, my opinions & arguments are definitely charged by Fe... but to actually say my innermost feelings is rather difficult for me. I tend to take them straight into detached analyzation mode - which occasionally leads them to get stuck in there.

    Thoughts?

    Oh, and hello!

    I've never thought of this until you brought it up... I also have a tendency to overanalyze on some topics. I know I don't have enough data and anything I come up with would be nothing more than empty speculations, but I couldn't stop myself. I see it more as Ni wanting to understand something and Ti failing to keep up. Tertiary Ti in development is a drag. Without it, you're in happy Fe mode. As long as other people are happy, so will you. Right now, it's at a stage that I see potential problems but I'm unable to correct them. It's frustrating.

    I've never been able to get Fe and Ti to work together on anything, especially when dealing with relationships. Expressing feelings is more related to Fi... There is so much unsaid that I want to share... but Fe fears the consequences. So in order to get it out, I have to completely shut down Fe. It's the cold detached analytical mode you've referred to. Even for non-emotionally charged ideas, I've never been able to truly describe the depth of something. It's not for the lack of trying...

    That brings something else up. Is this an INXJ thing? Whenever I write/type, I have a tendency to use the backspace a lot... as in type a sentence half way and have to make corrections. People I've talked to who are of other types usually don't do that. This also shows up in speech. I tend to get choppy whenever I have to explain something.

    Yes, I do this often. I (just did it) know what I want to say but putting it down is often difficult. I also use the 'back' or 'cancel' button a lot

    I really relate to almost everything quietgirl and nightning said just now. Does anyone else relate to this:

    It's as if my feelings are on focused on the object, the manifestation. I am aware of what the other person is feeling, in the moment, and reacting to it. But to know/express how I actually feel, I seem to draw myself out of Fe. I tend to have a hunch, or insight, and an idea about how I feel. Then I watch how I perceive other people's emotions, and then try to determine how I feel, sort of using my perception of their emotional state as a "marker." The more "markers," or people I interact with, the better I know my own state. But I really only know my internal feelings from analysis of my perceptions of their emotions, and of my past actions, even though in the moment I react with Feeling, the impression fades as soon as I withdraw into myself again, leaving only a fact and/or a pattern/perspective.

    In other words, I determine how I feel about something through the reactions of other people, because my emotion doesn't consciously "work" apart from from the Feeling object.

    The thing is, I can recreate the Feeling object in my mind, and relive my response to it, so that I can know how I feel. But once I look inside to reflect on it... it's like all that's left is my inferences based on the feeling, or something, like part of the impression fades when the stimulus is gone. So, it's like while I'm not directly aware of how Feeling affects the subject, but only how it affects the object, I can easily infer how it has affected the subject, although I don't directly feel that part as much as "become aware" of it.

    Did that make sense?
