    Thanks for posting this, Jaguar.

    Kinda scary to see so many points hitting close to home

    Reveal clues to their core values through the level of passion in their voice when they speak about what's important to them.
    Also in the sparkle in their eyes and how animated they become

    Well, that is under the heading "When people are using their preferred Introverted Feeling:"
    If they are unsure of whether they value something, then I'd say they aren't using Fi at all

    Excellent assertion; I agree with about pretty much all of it.

    Overall, I agree with most of these. Thanks for posting.

    However, I questioned these two, as well; especially for those with a Perceiving preference who like to consider all possibilities before making a decision. Something as important as values should be carefully considered and constantly reevaluated to determine if they are valid. If somebody holds onto the same values throughout their entire life, I would think they are either highly intelligent and devoted since they had it all figured out from childhood or they are very stubborn and ignorant to never question their values. Maybe I'm not an INFP, but I do believe I sway that way. I certainly don't think other people's values are absolute either. It's obvious that a lot of people are confused or base their values on whatever is popular, which is a value in and of itself; but I don't think that everyone is bound by unwavering values.

    Agreed. I'm hardly absolutist either. Is it more of a Ti thing to put your principles back on the drawing board, in light of experience, evidence, etc..? Fi types are too subjective to be colored by experience? That's hardcore.

    I haven't read this book, but is Leona Haas an INFJ? Reading this description of Fi sure sounds like it to me ..... must go research this.

    EDIT: Yes, she is.

    ^ Did you find it negative in comparison to the other type quick references posted thus far? I did....I don't know if that's just me being sensitive though. There's something kind of oversimplified about it too. It's not that I don't relate to it, but it feels very much like someone looking at me from the outside. It doesn't really say anything about how values are formed or how the thought process actually works, as the other descriptions seem to do. Maybe it's that Fi "demands a more than ordinary descriptive or artistic ability before the real wealth of [it] can be even approximately presented or communicated to the world."

    That sounds like your Se talking (so to speak)....of course a Fi-dom's thinking is greatly influenced by their Pe function. We're not living in a bubble...
