And even as a kid, I'd risk pissing off my very military minded dad if I didn't stand for the national anthem or something - and when he gave me those psycho Clint Eastwood like eyes, I "thought" through it - but I still decided to remained seated (and then got pulled up by the ear instead).
    But you could make an equally consistent narrative to explain that from an Fe perspective. There's too much opportunity for confirmation bias when you think about it that way.

    Yeah I agree, people generally prefer one over another, which is why MBTI is such a cool descriptive tool!.

    If I had to say it, whatever Fe I have is... basic, fundamental stuff. I mean, I'm not that stuck on myself too much or out to hurt anyone. Whether that's Fe or Fi, I don't know. On a higher level though, in the sense of how it's usually defined in MBTI, I struggle with it.

    Heurf deurf.

    Multiple functions mimicking other functions? Gah? Whut? It makes my mind hurt... It makes me go, "Dearest me, if only there was a way to diagnose a persons personality type by a process that evaluates the actual structuring of the brain, rather than the symptoms that are very hard to discern due to our wonderful biased perceptions of the functions and of ourselves...," and then I stroke my chin and rub my head until I fall asleep.

    This will not end well...
    But it will at least be poetic, I suppose...

    Hmm... But what if it does end well?
    Then I suppose it will be a different sort of poetry, a preferable sort...
    A sort I could become accustomed to...

    Fe is more about recognizing feelings and determining how those feelings affect your connection with other people and furthermore, how to manage them in a way that keeps everybody in a group connected.

    Fi is more about recognizing feelings and figuring out what that says about you as an individual, honoring them whether they keep the group connected or not, valuing feelings that differentiate people from their social fabric.

    Fe would help out because they would recognize helping as being the "right" thing to do, and I think they would be far more compelled to help, even if their mood wasn't good, whereas the Fi user might decide not to help based upon mood.

    However, the Fe user might not help if they felt embarrassed about approaching a stranger, and the Fi user might feel guilty for not helping a hurting person even as they walked away.
    I match the Fe part of what you said. Another E person brings out my Fe alot because of my introvertedness. It tends to hide alot behind uncertainty...the thing that seems to haunt us about our inferior function...our dream of one day overcoming.
    Take what I say with a grain of salt, because that's all it is compared to the ocean of complexity when it comes to actions and real life.

    Is it bad if I don't believe I have either of these functions?
