    Red face INTJ Fi waking up!

    So. Maybe some of you have noticed that my way of acting has changed in the last six months, maybe not.

    Anyway, I am currently in a period of my life when Fi is running the entire show.
    It's not just extremes or such, which used to be when I felt things.
    As in being acutely aware of actually feeling things.
    Gradually, I have become much more aware of myself and others.
    Not the Fe/empathy thing, that i've always been good at.
    It's got more to do with paying attention to feelings, really feeling other people, right and wrong, sympathizing
    with others, going , acting out of emotion, being more "passionate" than I used to be...
    Now, another thing is that I haven't actually been able to do a lot of "immoral" stuff that I used to do before, either.
    I feel slightly nauseous just thinking about doing something really wrong.
    My sense of morality is a bit medieval, I admit, but it is there and now it's sort of taken on a position where it
    controls my actions rather than being a thing of convenience that can be swept aside when it isn't practical or in line with primal urges etc.

    Now, I never was an emotard, like many NTs seem to be.
    Some things have always gotten through to me.

    But, here's the damn question.
    Is this common for INTJs to experience?

    Right now i'm feeling that I act about the same that an NFP would.
    After all, I have spent a considerable amount of my life being awestruck by INFPs and ENFPs being all cute.
    Crap, I just did it again!

    I could have entire days without being moved by stuff.
    Now it's like I can't watch TV, talk to people or read without feeling all sorts of crap.
    It's definitely a more colorful world, but it is not simple.

    Look, even this post is a damn mess.
    The reason that I differentiate it from the Fi-vomits of ENTJs feeling like crap or such is that I have seen that happen a lot.
    This is really different. It's more like I gained a sense or an angle on the world that I didn't have before in the same way.
    In a way, I feel more like a child again, in the sense that I now observe the world with a greater sense of wonder than I used to feel.

    I think I can blame this one on being around a certain pair of NFPs,
    a couple of NFP friends and talking to a bunch of them online about everything and nothing.
    It's freaky, though. It's like finding out you can suddenly breathe water and read the minds of fish.

    Anyway, I really hope this crap doesn't change my type or anything.
    So please, tell me if this has happened to you, too.
    Is it permanent or will it go away?

    nah, i think that's cool. sometimes i get a Te breeze like that. i don't HAVE to care about everything. it's kind of a relief. har, relief function.

    anyway, Fi gets more nuanced over time. you've seen that already - moving from emotional outbursts to feeling. when i was little, i was much more emotional and did not budge on morality. given, some of that is childhood developmental stuff, but i think it's also a life process. my Fi is currently in its proper "supportive parent" role for my Ne and i like it that way. it's only been 6 months for you and you've been influenced by your environment. i suspect that you will find yourself refining it and tailoring it more and more as time goes on. like polishing a diamond, hee hee

    the question is, do you like it?

    i think that whatever resonates with you most is how you will end up being.

    You sound like all is fine to me, YLJ.

    Adapting it is sort of what i've ben doing, too.

    And yes, I do like it.

    Yes, and thank you.





    Though, i'd like to hear about this from other INTJs.
    If there is anything that i've found it is that nobody is that unique.
    So this must, even if it's not a general INTJ trait (?), be occurring in some instances.

    I have witnessed INTJs "discovering" their Fi before - it's a disturbing experience to me. To me it is the exact same thing as seeing the consciousness of my younger self being transferred into an adult body - yegh! I prefer an INTJ before they discover they Fi or after they have tamed it a little.

    I think you'll find it hard to get other INTJs to confirm this

    I had mine read it and he went 'wtf, is he on something?' If they already have experienced it, I think you'll find it hard to push them into fessing up to it
