I began writing off Orange's posts because they were starting to take on overly defensive tone, and they were just annoying. I appreciated her first post a lot. I even repped her nicely for it. I didn't want this thread to turn into a raging battle of Tesla vs. The NFPs. I wanted to hear about other experiences, impersonal observations/judgments, and theories about how my perceptions might be backed or unbacked by a more general reality.
I never said that I don't want the input of INFPs. However, I do appreciate input from other types as well, as the input of INFPs is not the end-all, be-all when it comes to critiquing my perception.
And of course Fi users are going to start saying that they aren't prentious! Calling Fi pretentious is a complete insult to Fi's claims at being empathetic and skilled at analyzing emotions. I was expecting NFPs to respond this way; I wasn't writing their views off or "retorting" by saying that their opinions are biased and thus no good. I just am not going to be satisfied by their opinions alone.
