This is why so many people don't fit into a perfect MBTI box. The functions simply do not line up, and they know it. But then as InsatiableCuriosity once posted from the MBTI practitioner's handbook, Not everyone is a type.
    I would concur with this synopsis.

    By the way, for the 3856th time, the FEELING function is not to be confused with physiological emotions or being "emo." I am going to print up T-shirts for all the forum members:

    FEELING isn't emo!
    But is emo feeling?

It doesn't really have to do with my not trusting them as an individual, sometimes it has more to do with my not sensing that the Relationship itself is mutually beneficial and healthy for both, and that we'll both gain something out of it and grow together. I may just not desire that level of closeness with the person - simple as that. Doesn't necessarily equate to my 'distrusting' them.
    I think this is very enlightening. So it's more about your "sensing" where the "relationship" is ... the degree of the connection?

    What does that "sensing" feel like to you? Does it feel objective or analytical? Does it feel more subjective, kind of like an estimate? Or is it simply an awareness that defies description?

    (and btw, I never meant to imply that Fe 'started from a position of distrust'. I merely answered Peacebaby's inquiry w/ regards to myself. It may have been postulated after the fact, though. And, as should be obvious based on my previous posts, I'm not saying 'this is Fe', or the like. This is me.)
    I think that all anyone can say is, "this is me," when talking about their psychological tendencies. We talk in terms of functions, because, well, that's the topic, but that doesn't imply causality. At most, I'm looking for tendencies, patterns, correlations. Figuring out which aspects represent which function is, as this thread demonstrates, fairly difficult.

    I relate to all that, and my preference for Fe > Fi, by a long shot.

    Although I had influence from my INFP mother - I knew I truly grew into my "Fe"-preference, which was highly influential, from 18-24yrs, Uni, living away from parents for the first time, and all the best friends I lived with, InFJ, ESFJ, ENFJ [and a whack ESFP]. I was Fe-ed out, in a good way. It made me much more gregarious....NeFe. And more aware of others beyond self. I liked this development of me.

    I really do think I have the least easy access to my Fi preference, as for a while, I have been questioning how one even answers, "What do I want?" [weirdly, that question is very absurd to me, and I know it's absurd that I find it absurd ]

    I'm optimistic by nature (ENP). I am quite open to people, new people.

    A peculiar thing about me, as a lot of my closest friends have commented, the more someone gets to know me, the more they realize exactly how truly distant I am.

    So, the closer the other gets, the more distant I seem [I'm still figuring this one out, for my own self-reflection ].

    While those that are starting to know me, it's unbounded openness.

    I believe in no-holds barred, open curiosity fest, we-mean-each-other-no-harm interaction when I socialize with another. Esp. 1 on 1. And, even in groups. Just flow. No caution. No guard. Don't hinder the Ne, maaan.

    Granted, for me, the question of "trust" doesn't even really come into play, esp. as others seem to be perceiving it (F-dom/aux majority).

    Trust would mean that there has already been some exchange of tangible vulnerability/some feeling between the two.

    And, for that yeah, maybe because I'm not F-dom or Aux, I don't really ever trust with my "heart", until it's a slow, solid build.

    It sometimes takes me a while to get a clue into my own feelings, about what I want, how I truly, deeply feel. Let alone keeping it from others. I need to get a clue into it, first, myself.

    However, I fully trust with an open mind, when I approach someone.

    Until .....I vibe that something is off about them, something is not matching up with what has been presented, then...

    ...my mind is guarded, more Ti-focused, calculating, towards them.

    I'll judge once I'm failry certain I've got their number. Once all puzzle pieces fall into place. *Then* I feel justified in judging them, as I know the judgement will be way more nuanced and infused with understanding of who they are, which is vital for me.
    Exactly. I'm also pretty quick in picking out characters. Add to that, I don't like closing a door for potential outlet of curiosity [a person] just because....

    It can also happen that they suddenly demonstrate a behavior that I find offensive. Once I figure out *why* they do it, I'll make the decision to keep them in my life and if so, in what capacity. The level of trust they get, at that point gets refined and cemented.
    Yup.

    But, unlike you, my Fe-preference is def greater than my Fi-preference.

    And, like you (possibly on the "E"), I am ENP.

    The only thing is, as I said earlier, you and I would understand this word "trust" differently, intrinsically, I believe.

    I come from a position of trust, with my mind.......and, I can be quite warm, open and engaging to those I meet initially.

    Until...you give me a reason to , then,

    I got a new possibility. It's probably not trust vs. mistrust. I think it's levels of formality vs. familiarity (not Fe vs. Fi but more P vs. J).

    why is it so hard for you to admit that people are impacted by their cognitive functioning?

    i didn't say all trust is based off Fe or Fi. i'm saying the way in which and the reasons why we trust seems to be impacted by it.

    i know people with Fe higher in their function order that are way more trusting, and people with Fi who are way less trusting. i think it has a lot to do with environment that you're raised in too. in my post, i also wrote that i think Fe entails a better awareness of trust. can't we all agree at the very least that Fi is slightly more oblivious?

    why is it that any time anyone attempts to ascribe something to Fe or Fi it's automatically shot down? we do it with all the other functions. if we can ascribe depth to Ni and breadth to Ne why can't we do the same for Fi and Fe?

    i'm not boxing anyone in, i'm not making definite universal statements, i'm not launching the spanish inquisition against "Fe users who don't trust."

    i'm attempting to discuss typology, god forbid.

    Although, I also completely agree with this sentiment.

    Rock on ENFP!

    Thanks for putting words in my mouth, two days in row. If you want to rant like that, do it on someone who will put up with it.
