    I nearly choked laughing at this! Teaches me not to drink and read posts at the same time.

    Kiddo, I explained my side of things and how I thought you had things a bit wrong about Fi. I don't it can be explained in a way you will hear and understand.

    You don't seem to want to explain why my reasoning is off. In fact, I'm not even taking you seriously at all anymore. It's clear that you have nothing intelligent to contribute to the discussion. I'll leave you to your "jeers" and demeaning of my intelligence.

    My Fi is telling me I don't have to stand for your bullshit because I made an honest and open exploration of what Fi means in that post, and all you could do was insult me without providing any rationalization of how I was misguided. I'm far from perfect, but at least I'm a better person than that.

    Saying that you are in error is an insult now? You didn't provide any reasoning, just some vague observations about some ENFP friend of yours. I said based on my own experience I think you are in error. You had no hard logic to debate and therefore I don't owe you some in depth response with footnotes and quotes from experts. You have already been provided with a link to Jung's work on Personality Types and that's all the proof that is needed really to discuss his theories on Introverted and Extroverted feeling and what their clear definitions are.

    You made an extreme statement that Fi doms put their own self above the people close to them and it is simply not true. You seem to be most upset with me for having the audacity to say I don't agree with you on that point without some lengthy explaination why. As I said, you offered no real proof yourself, except personal observation. I am offering my own direct experience in return, nothing more. Nothing more is warranted by your contribution.

    Your hyperbole and attempts at using your Fe shaming on me always put a smile on my face. And your ending with the "I am a better person!" is classic. I think it is cute.

    I am curious as to why you are opposed to reading and trying to understand Jung's original definitions of Fi and Fe. That's the basis of all discussion on the topic and you seem to have an adversion to starting at that basic point.

    My Te gets flabergasted by this and my Fi would really like to hear your explaination to understand you better.

    I read them, and I don't think my interpretation is too far off of what was said.

    And by interpretation I mean this post. http://www.typologycentral.com/forum...8-post360.html

    I can't really decide which would be superior to the other since they are so fundamentally different. If you are talking about identity, as in the character and attributes that are composed and asserted from a person's very entity, then Fi is superior. If you are talking about interdependence, as in how everything and everyone is connected and how those bonds are nurtured through self control and dedication to ideals, then Fe is superior.
    Are you implying that an Fi dom is not self directed and self controlled?

    I'm implying you can't have one without the other and be a sane (or at least very emotionally functional) human being.

    I simply think that you missed an important point in Jung's descriptions about the difference between Fi and Fe, being that Fi is more intensive than extensive, so an Fi will tend to focus their caring on a select fewer individuals and give a more intensive emotional bond to those few, when they are lucky enough to have someone be accepting of this. Sometimes it is hard to find people who want that kind of intense closeness.

    It just struck me as being off the mark to say that an Fi will put themselves above the people they care about. If you believed that, you would have a hard time understanding any Fi dom you are truly close to in your life. That's all I was saying.

The identity has to be stabilized within to some degree to withstand the pressures of external opinion.
    This was kind of how I was up into my early 20's. I couldn't carve out my own identity, or rather was afraid to & didn't have the confidence, because I was so self-conscious of what others thought of me and how they perceived me. And I was aware of what I felt were huge differences between who I was and who everyone else around me was. (actually I didn't like how I knew they perceived me, which is why I started to switch things up in college, and then post-college I started to try to find the 'real me', and accept myself without being embarassed)

    Yep. While I do think Fe shines through when I'm interacting with others, I also ultimately listen to my own inner voice these days, in terms of the direction I want to go in life. And I think I'm gaining more confidence in myself as a result, and I think it's highly possible to balance the Fe and Fi and integrate both into life. I still DO have quite a lot of anxiety/internal turmoil, though, when I know I'm doing something that will displease those close to me -- but I still do it because I can't not do it. And I know I am ultimately in charge of my own happiness and my own life - and I think when you boil things down enough, everyone is - regardless of Fe/Fi.

    I have to admit I have a hard time relating to the seeming giant gap between Fe and Fi, and the whole topic of this thread -- I just don't see see them as being in opposition, or someone having only one, and none of the other. I think most people blend the two, and it's just a matter of degree. But that takes us out of strict mbti theory I suppose. [also I can still totally relate to pieces of both Fe and Fi as they've been defined throughout this board]

    Also, most behavioral processes/decision points are far more complex than breaking it down to just one sole function -- there are a myriad of 'lesser' functions that would come into play for the person to reach their final conclusion (well, not in all cases, but in a more developed individual it would be the case). Sure, the dominant function might have the strongest hold, but the other functions would build onto it, and add a support system, if you will.


    Oh, one thing that caught my eye -

    I think the bolded piece is over-simplifying Fe as well, and doesn't get to the core of Fe either. Or else it might pertain more to some Fe-dom types, but not so much to others. I highly doubt most Fe's would accept a popular tenet either without doing their own reasoning/etc, which they would also balance against the interpersonal aspects of the situation. But I know your main intent w/ this example was to illustrate Fi's!!! So no biggie.
