On your Fi - I don't claim to know people better than they know themselves so the usual caveats apply.
But hatred is not the opposite of love; hatred comes from love. Indifference is much more powerful than hatred. Indifference starves while hatred feeds, and that which feeds is reduced of its own power (except with love).All of this speaks to an unrealistic, idealistic view of humanity.Just as peace is the absence of war and darkness is the absence of light, indifference is the absence of love. But hatred is not the opposite of love; hatred comes from love. Indifference is much more powerful than hatred. Indifference starves while hatred feeds, and that which feeds is reduced of its own power (except with love).
- Betrays an idealistic feely understanding of human emotions and motivations. The drive is not to understand what it is plain and simple, the drive is to process it in these romantic tones and feel harmonious with the settled knowledge as you have absorbed it in the values of your inner world. This "knowledge" you then claim to be power.Hatred comes from the love you previously had. Rejection from a lover, disappointment in your relative/authority figure, lost faith in humanity..
Eliminated because of your love for an ideal humanity?
quintessential Fi-dom creation and stubborn grip of own internal values. Like your question aboveBut instead of finding power within (recognising your worth and believing in your abilities, regardless of what Joe Schmo thinks), these people grasp for power outside themselves (showing Joe Schmo that he's wrong by force/punishment/revenge, which gives value to his opinion).- it suggests a person whose only interest in the actual facts of the case are to support the values at which you have arrived, reality be damned. That and thisEliminated because of your love for an ideal humanity?
To top it off, your view (subsequently deleted) that you don't care what the definition of forgiveness was - smacks of a strongly internal value system that has not much use for objective definitions - whether those are even possible.Forgiveness can be simply freeing yourself from the grip of resentment, anger, bitterness, fear, etc. (through the natural process of grieving) and choosing not to feel victimised, choosing to believe and really understand that it had more to do with the other person than you.

How very typical. Please feel free to apply quack-psychology as you see fit.
