Thread: SFP Fi

  1. #1

    Default SFP Fi

    I am interested how Se affects Fi. I put it here because I want input from anyone. I am interested in how Se affects Fi in theory. In how SFP see Fi in themselves.

    Se is a prefferance for learning from direct experience, so SFPs tend to form opinions based more upon their own life experiences then theoretical considerations (unlike the NFPs!). Because of this preferance, SFPs will tend to get invovled in lots of diffferent things, which builds up their basis for making decisions. When experience is laking, SFPS often remain neutral on the subject matter. Their Ni is probably chipping in there - peoples opinions are just ideas, at least until the SFP has tride it themselves.

    Strangely, they "get wise" a lot sooner than most INFPs.
    Love is the point.

    Se drives them towards actually experiencing things. Whereas an INFP might just end up an encyclopedia of useless knowledge and theories.
    It balances out in time.

    How do I find the answer to that? How do I know what is "Fi" in myself?

    HAHAHAHHA! Oh, man. I have often thought, "If I could use my imagination for something practical, I'd be a rich woman." Alas....I'm one of the morons who is an encyclopedia of (mostly) worthless knowledge and theories that makes me excited as hell, but hardly anyone else. GAH!

    Read about it then...

    +1 to your post.

    Also as said in the other most recent Fi thread, Se is about the current context. So we would be in tune with how things affect us in the current context... and we wouldn't really jump to conclusions like Ne does in the NFPs. So we'd only really react a certain way unless we had a real reason to.

    I personally don't express offense or anything emotional unless there is some kind of concrete proof that someone had that intent. I tend to react to on the surface emotions over the deeper ones. When that happens I tend to just stay cool and wait for more info to see what the intent was.

    Also... my values are constantly being molded from my experiences in life. That's how I describe Fi and Se working together. And adding to that, I tend to express my values and inner feelings through action (or inaction). Not really through my thoughts.
