It only makes sense because you can't see how two different functions might reach the same end goal.Because to me it makes a lot of sense for people to be using the different functions (certainly to varying degrees) at different points having a select few preferences.
Please explain how Fi and Te are contradictory. That just doesn't make any sense to me. I already explained in a couple posts back how Fi and Te work together to provide one with a liberal and/or humanitarian political slant.I see Fi and Te as a lot more contradictory between them than Fi and Ti which are basically using the same "work ethic", only with different objects. Now you can have preference for a certain kind of object (in an ENFPs case, feelings I guess) but nothing is stopping you for being detached in certain scenarios that don't strike you at a subconscious level (where instinct dictates that you WILL use Fi).
Fi does not hold claim on emotional expression and "feelings." Where is your argument that a feely INTP is using Fi when he/she becomes feely? Why not Fe?There seem to be quite a few INtPs out there which are a lot more comfortable with feelings, and it makes more sense for them to use Fi (which they seem to do, since they tend to be divided between the INTP and INFP descriptions) than to be using their inferior function Fe in any proficient way.
Live and let live probably makes sense to you because it's practical, not logical. You probably equate practical with logical, but they aren't the same.And I do think that SOME of the conclusions I arrived to in my value system used Ti as well. Live and let live makes sense to me not just from an empathic angle but from a logical one as well.
