    Default Did I just display Fe earlier?

    Ok so I got back my exam paper today and I failed my exam. Then my teacher got angry with me and yelled at me.

    And I felt so sad I started tearing up in school in front of my classmates.



    Then there is another time when I made a mistake at work and my manager started scolding me. Then I started crying on the spot and all my coworkers ended up comforting me.


    Why do I have such a difficult time controlling my emotions whenever I feel sad? Why do I always end up crying in front of people whenever I feel sad? Is it my Fe that causes me to act like this?

    It has nothing to do with Fe.

    Sounds like you were being human.

    Or maybe this is the difference between introverts and extroverts.
    If someone yells at an extrovert, the extrovert would yell back. But if someone yells at an introvert, the introvert would either cry or walk away from the person.
    I have an ESFP friend and whenever someone yells at her she would either insult them or she would badmouth them behind their back, she doesn't take shit from anyone.
    Whereas I would just break down and cry whenever someone yells at me.
    I have always thought this is an Fe-Fi thing, but maybe this is more of an introvert-extrovert thing.

    Extroverts get hurt feelings and cry, too. That is definitely not type-related.

    You could make an argument that whether someone is more likely to back down, vs. argue back, is type-related, but even then it heavily depends on the person and the situation, in a way that isn't reliably linked to type.

    It might be Fe if the reason you are crying is because of the horrible pain and frustration the teacher must be feeling for failing at his job.

    I don't know why I cried either, my tears just felt like dropping down at that time and I am unable to control it.
    Anyway, despite my teacher yelling at me and hurting my feelings, I still care about my teacher though, and I do feel really bad for failing that exam. I can understand why he reacted the way he did.

    Actually, my post was more of a joke.

    Actual Fe is not quite as simple as what I made it out to be, and of course comes in many shapes and sizes.

    For example. In me Fe shows itself through my willingness and ability to formulate my opinions as recognizable as possible for the intended reader. Not because I want to be understood myself, but because I want others to understand. Fe is my fragile link to other people. I sometimes feel that without it, I would truely become a hermit.

    But Fe comes in all shapes and sizes. Wether it be laughing at a joke that you didn't think was funny, or force feeding someone your ideals because you think you save them by doing so (yeah, Fe is not infallible). The only consistency in Fe is that it puts a high value on someone elses well-being. Not objectively, but subjectively.

    Also, it is very likely that Fe was at least a part for your experiences, but it would probably be imprudent to chalk the experience up to Fe entirely. No single action is every truely exclusively Fe.

    I'm ENFP and I've cried in front of my boss before. I very rarely yell back and my first reaction to being yelled at is to apologize and cry.
    You hem me in -- behind and before;
    you have laid your hand upon me.
    Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.
