From one perspective, inferior Ti could be seen as the worst, while from another, inferior Ni could be seen as the worst.
    This entire theory lacks objectivity, I am merely playing by it's rules which are based around attempting to convince people of one angle or another.

    The only actual evidence for it is in heurestics, so essentially anyone can take it in any direction and claim it has truth value.

    That is my point and it is one which exposes typology.

    Agreed. However, some of the points you lament about can be easily applied to everyone.

But being born or at least developing it as a lead is such a tragedy, for the person has no choice and can only be made so aware of their shortcomings, much in the same way as an incredibly stupid person doesn't realise they are stupid, so too does an Fe dom not realise their own foibles.
    Again, how is this exclusive to Fe doms? All extraverts are susceptible to the shortcomings of their inferior and run the risk of lacking the awareness of its influence. Introverts as well, however they would likely be more aware of the inferior simply because of their introversion.

    You also mention the suppression of critical thought but I counter by saying that all types suppress something, again, why is the suppression of critical thought worse than say, the suppression of physical sensation?

    Earlier in the thread, you say that the Fe dom is doomed to "never garner any deeper comprehension of their own being". Here is a problem that again is not exclusive to an Fe dom. Carl Jung himself said that all extraverts basically are at danger of this happening to them, particularly if the extravert overindulges in the outer world without taking the time to introvert. I concede however that perhaps an Fe dom would be more likely to fall victim to this issue.

    Honestly, I still think your feelings toward Fe as a function is more of a projection which is exacerbated by E6 dependency for that seems to be the core issue underlying your premise.

    It's personal I suppose, but while one can become aware of their body with practice, I think that any angle concerning the mental realm takes more effort.

    Plus physical sensations only inform of what is happening to our bodies, critical thought holds an entirely more useful metaphysical area of consideration. It helps pick apart the foibles of our species and character, pointing out pitfalls and flaws within reasoning and current systems.

    A physical sensation isn't, for example, going to tell us that we have an over dependency on fossil fuels, or that many social structures are still relying upon an archaic hierarchy from our monkey days, excluding difference in favour of group affirmation.

    A critical thought is the corner stone of what makes us the creatures we are, what defines a human and helps to advance us. The sensations are merely biology although they do serve an important function on an individual level of well being.
