    It's good for looking inward and finding out what means the most to me. It's good for following my heart and doing what I feel is right and true. When I say that I want to speak out for human rights and life and against war and weapons of mass destruction, I feel that I am using my Fi. Even if no one agrees with me, I will still persevere because I am expressing what is in my heart.
    I don't feel as if I am lost at sea. I'm never lost. Somewhere out there is a shore and seashells and sand and someone who will understand what I have just said here...

    Bah, I misread the metaphor (details, details...), and deleted that.

    What you say is how I've wanted to see Fi as well, Tourist.

    Anyways, I'm getting tired of all of this "unempathetic" stuff too. It's making me confused.

    Suggestion:

    Fi's the ocean the ship is surrounded by and uses to get somewhere, to journey, to find its way...or get completely lost in the shit storm up ahead

    I'd say Te is the rudder

    Oh KDude, I think that we are empathetic, just like people with Fe. It just comes from a different place. And, because our feeling function is introverted, it can sometimes be hard to put that empathy into words.

    Strong Te and Ni but weak Fi = knowing how to get there but not knowing where you want to go.

    Strong Fi and Se but weak Te = knowing where you want to go but not how to get there.

    Maybe.

    As my inferior function, it's more of a pain than it's worth!

    Fi is like the gummy bear that gets stuck in the cogs of machinery, causing production to crash to a halt. When a mechanic finally pulls out the mutilated gummy bear, it just reforms and dives back into the cogs again. It's a dumb, sappy little suicidal maniac. :steam:

    don't get too hung up on on that black-and-white thing that some profiles like to talk about... or just reducing Fi to emotion... maybe that's how it plays out as a tert/inf or shadow function but it's more nuanced in a dom/aux than that
    Oh I know....the only people who grasp Fi seem to be those who use it well, usually with it as the dom or aux function. I have a feeling those who have inferior Fi or Fi in shadow have such a low view of it because their own use is so limited and shabby. That or, you know, IFPs are just MISUNDERSTOOD
