    Default Elfboy's Fi vs Fe test

    1) my feelings are easy to describe in words (conversationally, not in writing)
    a) often
    b) not often, but more so in writing

    2) I empathize with people by
    a) taking on their feelings as my own
    b) thinking about how I would feel in that situation or drawing from experience of how I've felt in that situation in the past

    3) my emotions show a lot on my face
    a) YES!
    b) not usually

    4) I am good at tailoring my behaviors and demeanor to various social situations
    a) yes, unless I am with a really mean spirited group of people
    b) no

    5) I place higher priority in
    a) unity, team work, external harmony
    b) self expression, internal harmony

    6) my feelings come from
    a) my heart
    b) my gut

    7) I care more about
    a) how a decision will effect people's feelings and well being
    b) the principle of the matter.

    8) the external world has a strong impact on my feelings
    a) yes. I am adaptable, but also easily effected
    b) no, though I tend to gravitate toward places with a similar vibe to how I already feel

    9) my beliefs come more from
    a) how I was raised, community values, how things effect people
    b) myself. even from a young age, I've always had strong views that sometimes differed from what I was taught. I can't really explain it, they were just "there"

    more A's: Fe
    more B's: Fi

    PS: please feel free to point out if you believe one of the questions is biased or stereotyped.

    10) b

    duh

    as far as number 3, i have a hard time wearing clothes that i dislike or that i think are ugly according to my personal taste. but i also don't feel that my fashion sense expresses that much about me, and if i dress up and try to look nice i'm mostly doing it for the benefit of other people. if i didn't care what people thought i'd wear sweatpants and no makeup all the time.

    my suspicions of you being an INFJ are officially over (that was one of the main reasons I wanted to make the test. I think it makes it pretty obvious whether one uses Fe or Fi)

    More like clichés.

    1) my feelings are easy to describe in words
    a) often
    b) not often
    Ambiguous. I can easily express my feelings via the written word. Spoken, on the spot, not as much.

    2) I empathize with people by
    a) taking on their feelings as my own
    b) thinking about how I would feel in that situation or drawing from experience of how I've felt in that situation in the past
    True empathy is a mix of the two. This is trying to simplify a complex process into improperly distilled parts.

    3) I dress
    a) to impress
    b) to express
    This has nothing to do with Fi or Fe or anything MBTI related.

    4) my emotions show a lot on my face
    a) YES!
    b) not usually
    Again, a bit too simplified. I have found INTPs to be almost catatonic looking and ESFPs super animated.

    5) I am good at tailoring my behaviors and demeanor to various situations
    a) yes, unless I am with a really mean spirited group of people
    b) no
    I think the problem with this question is that Fi vs Fe can often be a difference of motives rather than results. Having a clause tacked onto option A and no clause onto option B makes the question yield two answers to two different questions.

    6) I place higher priority in
    a) unity, team work, external harmony
    b) self expression, internal harmony
    This is probably the most basic description of Fi versus Fe. It's just so obvious. If you know how to answer this question, why are you taking this quiz?

    7) my feelings come from
    a) my heart
    b) my gut
    This one has merit. I was talking to another Fi-er last night and she discerned that Fe = heart, and Fi = soul, and I think that that is a good distinction.

    8) I care more about
    a) how a decision will effect people's feelings and well being
    b) the principle of the matter.
    This isn't too bad but again it seems overly simple.

    9) the external world has a strong impact on my feelings
    a) yes. I am adaptable, but also easily effected
    b) no, though I tend to gravitate toward places with a similar vibe to how I already feel
    Again, the clauses tacked on change the question they are answering.

    10) my beliefs come more from
    a) how I was raised, community values, how things effect people
    b) myself. even from a young age, I've always had strong views that sometimes differed from what I was taught. I can't really explain it, they were just "there"
    This is quite cliché as well. No one is pure either function. All is a mix of both.

    I think a better test, if you are serious about creating one, would be to do an open ended scenario. The responses to a situation could tell a lot more about the person and their emotional decision making process than something this simplistic. Especially since it would mimic a real life example.

    I'm not sure I truly comprehend question 7. I think I meant to say 6, but I think you answered it anyways. Actually it seems you've re-numbered them.

    I'm not sure I truly comprehend question 7.
    #7 has to do with the sensation one gets from emotion. do you start to feel your heart pound or do you feel it more in your abdominal area?

    @Saturned
    so, in a nutshell, what you're saying is that an open ended test would give a more thorough picture? makes sense. also, you were right, question 3 sucked, I'm changing it

    I think so. Make it into an experiment of sorts. Come up with a couple different ones to view the patterns that each makes. Fi and Fe can be distilled down into super simplistic terms, but I think that doing so does a disservice to each one.

    Edit: @Elfboy, those Kokology threads could give you inspiration on this.

    Now this I'm interested in. I would definitely participate in something like this. Too many times when I'm given a two option test I always tend to think both or neither answer fits for me.

    Cool! I'm going to take a stab at this.

    1) my feelings are easy to describe in words (conversationally, not in writing)
    a) often
    b) not often, but more so in writing

    2) I empathize with people by
    a) taking on their feelings as my own
    b) thinking about how I would feel in that situation or drawing from experience of how I've felt in that situation in the past
    (kind of in between, leaning more toward a)

    3) my emotions show a lot on my face
    a) YES!
    b) not usually
    (kind of in between, really situational)

    4) I am good at tailoring my behaviors and demeanor to various social situations
    a) yes, unless I am with a really mean spirited group of people
    b) no

    5) I place higher priority in
    a) unity, team work, external harmony
    b) self expression, internal harmony

    6) my feelings come from
    a) my heart
    b) my gut

    7) I care more about
    a) how a decision will effect people's feelings and well being
    b) the principle of the matter.
    (kind of in between; 'feelings' don't matter, but 'overall well-being' matters a whole lot)

    8) the external world has a strong impact on my feelings
    a) yes. I am adaptable, but also easily effected
    b) no, though I tend to gravitate toward places with a similar vibe to how I already feel

    9) my beliefs come more from
    a) how I was raised, community values, how things effect people
    b) myself. even from a young age, I've always had strong views that sometimes differed from what I was taught. I can't really explain it, they were just "there"

    Well. There we go

    Elfboy, your Fe-hate is showing.
