    That seems a pretty good description to me.

Apparently, I mean. From my point of view, someone like that is already making a bold step in going there in the first place. Yet they're NOT assertive and can't really talk about it? That doesn't make any sense to me.
    I think you could take non assertive as meaning live and let live. That is how I see that aspect. Generally people see the world and others through their own eyes. So somebody thinking that way could tend to also give others that same space.

    The words in the original post now read:

    Lets talk about Fi kids!
    Those are not my words.
    Those are not your words.

    I don't know that I like this definition, because it brings to mind those posts I've seen where people call rude and childish behavior "Fi." While we're at it we could also say that people who think they're killing their children to protect them from Satan are using Fi.

    If this is REALLY Fi, this basic simple statement, it's fucking scary and I want nothing to do with it.

    So basically everything you define as Fi doesn't encroach on others? Therefore, it's never in conflict enough to need to assert itself externally? You just see and accept that everyone has a point of view, and that's good enough for you?

    I'm going to bite my tongue on this. Rather, I don't know what to think.

    No, I was reflecting on how I tend to choose my battles. There are definitely times when it is, or I am, in conflict with others over view points. It was an idea on how Fi dom could be viewed in such a way.

    Something like that would have the opposite effect on me. I wouldn't see them as that accepting. It just tells me they don't have any actual thoughts to send my way, and that the nice behavior is for everyone. I like it when people are cool for a more tailored, specific reason. I've known people through life who seem nice, but in the end, I can never get it out of them on why they are being that way (not that I totally resent it. It's just frustrating).

    I think for myself I am generally nice to people because I like a nice atmosphere around me. I want people to enjoy having me around and I like being entertaining and having a good time. I remember doing a test and the result said I am motivated by applause. There is an element of that but that isn't the whole story. I also like helping people out with stuff, I enjoy finding the answer to something, someone's training problem, or whatever. I don't get what you mean by a tailored, specific reason. Do you mean like how I enjoy helping people and getting them into training and things like that?

    If the description was done better, it would not have sounded "off."

    Which makes a huge difference. You (if a bit in a extreme case) don't wear a Swastika in the Western world because it'll immediately have a connotation with Hitler and Nazi Germany. However, it is a different story when it comes to more of the Eastern countries because many still use it for religion (often depicted horizontally and not diagonally like the Nazi Germany symbol.)

    All of the functions are scary in isolation.

    Th N functions are delusional, the T functions are cold/inhuman, The S functions are primitive/animalistic.

    It's that moderating effect of the other functions that make them seem reasonable.

    • Does not tolerate violations of its core beliefs. Fear me. That is, if you get to my core. Otherwise, we cool.
    • Relates to people one-on-one through a fine-tuned sensitivity to the inner life of others. Yes.
    • Seeks inner harmony. Always.


    What's Going On?

    • Is the most subjective of the four decison-making processes. Objectively speaking, yes, we all know this. Author didn't make it up!
    • Develops expertise in recognizing and cultivating inner harmony. Pretty much.
    • Has a focus on the individual, not the collective. Not always, but prefers to focus on individuals.
    • Is the only process with a truly nonnegotiable element. I don't know about this.

    When people are using their preferred Introverted Feeling:

    • Their beliefs are personal and are not influenced by the established value systems of their culture. This can be true. Fi could randomly decide they prefer the values of 19th century England instead of American mainstream values.
    • They may view virtually anything as innately good or innately bad, as positive or negative. Strong opinions? Yes.
    • Nurturing and protecting their inner emotional life is their primary goal. This is so, so true.
    • Internal harmony is more than desirable, it is critical to their well-being. YES. And it's more openly obvious with Fi doms, but is also true of aux/terts even.
    • They are adept at knowing when something is wrong or right with others. Yes. This is called empathy folks.
    • Bringing their inner system of values to fruition in the real world is usually not important to them. Can be observed to be true because strong Ps can be so passive and unobtrusive unless directly invaded. Even less "P" Fi users aren't big moral crusaders like Jesus, Oprah, or David Koresh usually. This can be a good thing.
    • Are outwardly tolerant of other people's values as long as they don't conflict with their own. Yes.
    • Are often not aware of how they affect the world around them. Especially true in younger Fi people with less life experience, or if it wasn't disciplined into them to do so.
    • May cut off a relationship because their value system has been threatened, without giving any indication that anything was wrong. Yeah, especially when I was younger if someone just suddenly like WAY OVER THE TOP violated my values, I'd just stop hanging out with them. It had to be big, and something I saw as insurmountable, though.
    • Reveal clues to their core values through the level of passion in their voice when they speak about what's important to them. Yep.
    • They are very nonjudgmental as long as their private belief system is not violated. Outwardly, sure.
    • Until a value is violated, nothing brings out their effort or energy to be involved. Yep. Precious energy, must store it for myself and important things.
    • Have unquestioning faith in their own values. Can be true in some cases.
    • Assumes everyone's values are absolute so there is no sense in disputing them. I see this more in SFPs and very, very "P" ENFPs
    • Some of their values may be unrelated to the existing cultural norms, and may conflict with them. Yes.
    • Will resist data that appears to conflict with their values. In such a situation they adapt very slowly, or not at all. Yes.


    Paraphrased descriptions of what it's like to make decisions through one's Introverted Feeling:


    • I can feel when people are with me or against me. Yep.
    • I use humor and sarcasm as a way of keeping my values from becoming public. I need to deflect attention from this very personal place. Always.
    • I could never work for someone whose values conflict with mine. I can see this more so strong Fi types than some others.
    • My personal space is very important to me. Please don't invade my physical and emotional space. YES.
    • Rules have to feel right to me or I will ignore them. Yep, even if done quietly.
    • What I need most from people is affirmation, acceptance, and my freedom. Sure.
    • If someone affronts my values I will cut them off so quickly they will just be gone. I will probably never initiate contact with that person again. No, I tend to fight more, but they say I've got a bunch of Te. I see it in other Fi'ers though.
    • I could never do something just because someone wants me to do it if it doesn't feel right to me. Yes.
    • I have a sense of right and wrong that I cannot explain. Yes.
    • It's very hard for me to take a stand publicly. I have to spend time trying it on to see whether it feels right. When I do take a stand, it comes out very passionately and I am not open to debating or discussing the issue. Moreso when I was younger than now, and I see this a lot in other FPs
    Honestly, seriously, except for some very minor things I see all of this in myself mostly, or at least in other FPs, even INTJs or ISTJs. In fact, I feel that some Fi people have made quite a brilliant effort in displaying for others just how very true some things on this list are.
