Thread: Fi/Fe/Ti/Te - My gross oversimplification

  1. #1

    Default Fi/Fe/Ti/Te - My gross oversimplification

    *pops out of internet hibernation*

    As inspired by the title of the 70's (or whatever) self-help book.

    Fi: "I'm ok, you're ok" (don't bother me and I won't bother you)
    Fe: "I'm not ok if you're not ok" (seriously, it bothers me to see you upset)
    Ti: "You're not ok, but I'm ok with that" (I think you're a douchebag, but I can live with it)
    Te: "You're not ok and I'm not ok with that" (I feel compelled to point out what's incorrect about what you just said/did)


    Bonus round: Ti and Fe manifest similarly in that they don't feel driven to express their disagreement - Ti because they don't care, Fe to maintain group harmony. Similarly for Te/Fi - they're much more likely to express themselves when wronged.

    I can relate to all of these, but mostly to the Te response. I guess Ti dominants are supposed to be a bit more chill...

    I feel cold-hearted when agreeing that the Fi one sounds right, after seeing the Fe...

    I do still care...I just don't make other people's problems the center of my life.

    Hmm I don't know that these are all that accurate.

    When I take functions tests I score pretty high on Fe, but higher on Fi.

    There's an ISFJ on this site who scores pretty much equal on Si and Fi, and actually lower on Fe.

    So I don't think the two are as different as people think they are. Fi does get upset when they see other people upset, and by the same token, Fe can be insensitive to a person's complaints if they rock the boat too much.

    Your oversimplification is truly gross.
