The concept of Fe or the Social instinct being responsible for people's experiences of social pressure seems to be a quiet but prevalent belief, with the result being the stereotyping and therefore misconception and vilification of the two.
However, from accounts like @brainheart's recent realization of being an INFJ despite negative impressions attached to Fe, and my own realization of being so/sx despite negative impressions attached to the social instinct, as well as numerous other accounts of people associating themselves with either or both yet expressing their own social discomfort or negative past experiences, it seems to be clear that the link between them is not direct.
I would love to have a discussion on the feelings of Fe users and people with Social in their stacking on social situations and pressure, as well as looking at the actual qualities of Fe and Social versus the negative impressions attributed to them.
I would be grateful for the sharing of any personal experiences on the part of Fe and/or Soc dominants and auxiliaries in relation to the social sphere, social pressure, peer pressure, bullying, popularity, persona, etiquette, shyness, "mean girls", loneliness, ostracization, relational aggression, status, and any other social or interpersonal experiences that may shed light on individual impressions of the social sphere. I would also be grateful if anyone of any type and stacking would like to contribute their individual impressions of Fe and/or Soc, how they differ in terms of social response, and how they can play into social pressure.
