My thought is that perhaps when young our ego resides in the dom/aux functions, but as we age we can start to step away from clinging so tightly to that pair...and grow closer to being the true "self". So these little peeks...where we feel like we ARE Xi but we are also not quite Xi...they are like little windows where for brief moments we can see more than just our ego ... (warning...phoo phoo mystical feeler stuff....)
Also-note the term "scapegoat"...Id immediately link that to how enfps use rationalization to self analyze and modify behavior via externalized Te learning and discussion....but often I think Fe mistakes this for making "excuses" Is really just a differnt learning style.
I think FiSi and TiSi may form a very sensitive core respective, so poking at either will generate a response....Jennifer, since your Fe is inferior, could it be encoded in Ti in someone but maybe much more instinctually than in an entp, thus just seem more obvious as a Ti principle....maybe encoded more subconsciously ?
Hehehe, I am doing the same to Fe users but asking them how they feel and not endlessly providing solutions.... It's fun and allows me to love other much more since I understand what they need.
Also, much thanks for these threads as you do an excellent job of summerizing a whole variety of topics and drawing them together in a precise, clean, mapped out summary. I also admire how you try to incorporate an open minded approach to the issue and seek to enhance communication. Excellent job.
