    Default Centrist = Fe, Radical = Fi?

    Your thoughts?

    Thanks for the contribution. Next time, some substance would be nice, but it was a decent first effort.

    I prefer to look at Fi as one who refuses to wear the ill-fitting coat of conformity.
    That doesn't make someone, "radical."

    Not necessarily. However, it certainly makes it a lot more likely, wouldn't you agree?

    Fi refuses to conform?

    Fi does not have conformity in mind. It values what it values, be its opinions mainstream or standing alone.

    Choose a word that isn't normally used in a derogatory fashion.
    "Hey Erma! Look at those goddamn radicals protesting in the street!"

    That type of usage is quite common.
    By you automatically associating Fi with being "radical," tells me you harbor a bizarre stereotype - consciously, or unconsciously.

    This. And I find that society's accepted norms driven to extremes make some people very radical, whether they be Fi or Fe users.

    Example: The Inquisition.

    Is there a word that describes someone who holds divergent, intransigent political beliefs that isn't connotatively laden, for good or bad? I personally respect some radicals far more than some centrists.

    I come from a poli. sci. background. "Radical" as I'm using it is simply a descriptive term - one who wants changes from the roots (radix, Latin). You're looking for something that's not there.

    Please discuss the topic further, and assume good faith on my part.
