    Default Fi or Fe?

    I have few questions about Fi and Fe.

    a) If you know what you feel but don't know why would that be Fi or Fe, or maybe both but it depends?

    b) If you think that e.g. you consider your mom strictly as mom, but not as a buddy/other person, is that Fe? (I'm not saying you have bad relationship with your mother for strictly considering her mom)

    c) If you feel like you want to 'change' other people so they have your personal value system is that Fi or Fe?

    Tnx!

    a) I see that as being more Fe, from what I understand and have experienced Fi usually understands not only what it is feeling but also why it feels what it feels. It could potentially be both though.

    b) I think that's also more Fe than Fi if anything at all, I see people as individuals above all not as a conglomeration of whatever or their titles/occupations, etc.

    c) That is Fi and the story of my life.

    Anyway, I'm no expert so I'm answering these mostly based on personal preference/experience.

    A) more Fi

    B) not type related, or undeclared opinion

    C) feeling in general. Fe types will act out more on feeling.

    a. Probably both, humans are complex creatures.

    b.

    c. If you think they should have your values, or at least respect them in a way that doesn't show they have different values, Fi. If you're changing people to your ideals of them or what they could become "for their own good", I think that is more Fe.

    a) weak F

    b) I would have to know why you only consider your mom as mom.

    c) depends which system we're talking about... In socionics this is very Fi-ish, in MBTI it could be Fe too. For the record, I don't really do this, I don't give a flying fuck what value systems other people have. I'll let them have whatever value system, fine. Now if we were talking about logical systems..... I do sometimes give too much of a fuck there. Now, just to cover this topic entirely, sometimes I do get upset when someone doesn't seem to care about other people and then I try to "change" them or more precisely, their behaviour and feelings toward the other person/people, but that's not to do with their personal value systems, it's to do with how they approach other people, thus I attribute my caring about this to Fe preference, in MBTI.

    What do you mean by this "for their own good" and ideals of how people should be?

    Sorry, none of these are necessarily type related.

    Different functions can be applied in entirely diverging ways and still achieve the same ends. You'll have to be much more specific about the circumstances to figure out which function is involved.

    Came to say this.

    There might be a slight lean towards one function experiencing one thing over another but I suspect it's weak.

    lol, I don't consider my mom only as mom! That is an example, not necessarily my opinion. Btw none of it is necessarily my opinion!

    I get what you mean. I was trying to be as brief as possible. I was thinking maybe where all this 3 things I asked would be more likely Fi or Fe as where they in your opinion would be more common. If it would be more common/an indication of Fi, doesn't mean it's never Fe. If you really insist on it, I could give possibly more specifics.
