    ^Interesting. I agree with Udog about what Fi is in this instance.

    The I doesn't do anything. The P already made your F into an Fi.

    Well, if you are indeed ESFP, that could explain it a bit. ESFPs and ENFPs often don't do that, and often resent situations that cause them to go into Fi mode.
    I don't know if I am ESFP, ISFP or ISTP at the moment. I don't ever remember ever analysing why I feel something. My concept of feeling is very physical. Sometimes when I feel conflicted over something I analyse how I could set it up better, but that is different again.

    Fi is kinda...trying to make sense of the origin of the feeling and the behavior it provokes. Analyzing that part. It allows you to finetune your emotions and reactions, as well as those values that Fi upholds.

    Well, I can't say I relate all too well to the analyzing thing myself.

    So your values are foremost in your mind? You have a clear understanding and could say what is most important to you? You naturally reflect on what it means to be you?

    Yes. And if someone tells me something that shakes my core, I will retreat and figure out why harmony has been disrupted. For instance, when someone tells me something that Fi tells me to be true, but at the same time doesn't correspond with what I hold dear, I will backtrack. Ponder the situation. And find a way to make those two coexist without disrupting either. I will find the connection between the two, finetuning their relationship so I know when one is true and in which context the other is likely to be true. Ne..context is everything when finetuning Fi.


    Edit: Totally random addition: I'm watching atm a movie about what went on in South-Africa. How they tried to heal the wounds of the past, seek justice...find understanding and build a new life. No doubt a lot of Fe was present in that too..but the core of it, the need for harmonizing, seeking justice, seeking a meaning and trying to make sense of it, the outrage, the pain, the suffering, and the ultimate cleansing (which was the intent of it) is very much how I experience Fi. Walk through the fire to find wisdom and how to proceed from there on.

    How does the Fi description relate to you? Or does it?

    I can relate to that alot. I tend to think Fi seeks moral consistency in the same way Ti seeks logical consistency. There can be overlap between the two, so it can get confusing sometimes.

    It does, but I'm not much of an analyzer, I can do it, but it is not something I enjoy generally. It is much more of a gut reaction.

    I don't have to analyze why certain things make me feel certain way, I usually just know it. I may not be able to express it coherently, but it makes sense to me.

    That's how I think of it. I think I've developed Ti because of the Fi hunt for moral consistency. Ti helps me check, confirm or deny and articulate my sense of it. But the Fi came first, and the Ti, at least as applied to personal matters, was more of a means to an end. I think that's the difference.
