My friend what is the point of learning if dont use this knowledge? When are you going to use all this psychological knowledge and take over the world? I say, get out there and show people the power of knowing! They are too busy monitoring the ENTPs and ENTJs. They will never expect it from the quite INTP Please remember Nico and all the ENFP's when you have complete control over all our fates...
Yeah, but it's not like it's real knowledge... it's stuff other people have figured out, not me, and I'm re-hashing it. My real insight happens when I'm engaging in life- not sifting through websites and books. That's when all of the cool ideas come into my head. [Kind of like John Nash (in the A Beautiful Mind movie) when he rides around his bike to get original ideas. (Not comparing myself to John Nash, just to how his ideas come.)]
Healthy Fi for me is also about stopping to realize the human factor of a situation. I stop and understand the limitations and needs of the people involved because I stop and remind myself that I'm working with people that are incapable of working like robots. Once I switch over into that mode, I'm still utilizing Si and Te, but I've allowed myself to slow down to become empathic. Most of the time though, for me, being empathic works like 60% of the time, so it's not always reliable as a solution.
This is actually a good example of how Fi can bother me, so I guess it would apply to tertiary Fi as well:
I dislike it when people put too much weight on intentions and no weight at all to what ACTUALLY happened. As immature Fi it can be a bit of a "Well I didnt MEAN to do put you in a bad position, so you cant blame me".
Some idiot kid whacked me the other day because he was oblivious to his surroundings. After I tried to get the kid to understand my point:
--stop screwing around
--even if you were sure no one was in your way, you still shouldnt be doing that
--STFU and admit that you were an idiot
but noooooo...his idiot mother was intent on convincing me that because "He didnt mean it", I should therefore, "just move on". How is he going to learn about minding others and his surroundings???
Seriously, it's one thing to accidentily do something that causes real harm, it's quite another to be jumping all over someone coz they did something small that was due to momentary clumsiness. Just coz you're better at being 'present' in your surroundings, doesn't mean you get to demand the same from others and call them a moron when they fail.
But wait..I understand...Fi isn't your strenght, I guess..maybe the mom should've realized that your weakness in fact is showing understanding to others point of view. *ponders*
