One of my best friends is ISFP. When her feelings are predominant, she paints, gardens or plain old jumps around and screams to the sky. She does ecstatic dance and yoga and all of these physically grounding activities. At work, one afternoon the person closing the lunch room was going to throw out all the knives and forks because someone left all these dirty dishes in the sink. As an environmental activist, she was ready to literally hit him - I had to stage an intervention right there! (And I saved the cutlery too, no worries there.)
To me there is this general, inaccurate assumption that INFP dumps emo all around the world and I feel compelled to publically reject that view. Because my life personal experience is very contrary to this representation; I am very private and hold my feelings even closer to me. You may never know what I really feel because I keep any external expression tightly reigned in; like a delicate flower or crystal vase, emotions don't react well to rough handling. So I tend to their care myself. And trust only a very very select few to even see these precious glimpses into my soul.
On the forum though, when someone seems accusatory on Fi, I do rush to defend it, because if I don't, it seems like no one else will. My feelings are a part of me that I have had to learn to love whether I like them or not. So I feel like no one else has the right to attack them, or anyone else's feelings for that matter.
I can only speak for myself of course.
