Thread: Fi is...

    Default

    I don't relate in anyway to anyone's pictures of Fi other than mine. Why do people feel bound by Fi? That doesn't make sense to me, that it is represented as a burden.

    Also, mythical pictures do nothing for me.

    I understand what you mean and I love and respect the SF use of Fi. Feels nice and genuine. Tangible. Still a little self-centered, but I guess all introverted functions are.

    I don't get the pictures either.

    Since Fi is supposed to manifest itself in ordinary life under the form of ethics and personal values, we can suppose there exists as many possible Fi as there are individuals.

    It's a very tricky function. The definition seems simple, yet the manifestation of it may vary exponentially.

    Funny that, because part of the movie seemed to be based on john learning to use Fi I think, to feel one with everything, to empathize.

    I can understand what Fi really is on the surface, but what I really want to know, is how such a function comes about, what makes it a strong way to think--- But I think I worked it out just then, it's useful in working together, it's more constructive than thinking, it acts to hold people together, to hold a community together.

    Yes, especially since it works in conjunction with other functions depending on the function order of the individual. For instance, ISFP archetype uses a Fi>Ni axis for relief, while INFP uses Fi>Si for relief. These produce different manifestations. The possibilities increase with the number of archetypes in consideration, and 6.5 billion individuals.

    Yup. And cause a lot of non-Fi users think that it can be turned off like turning off a tap. T and F may be at different ends of the Judging function but they don't behave in the same way. I can start/stop thinking logically if I want to, but I can't detach my Fi/values from my decisions.

    Your analogy is incorrect, they behave in exactly the same way.

    But I wouldn't go so far as to equate Fi with "values", I think that's the realm of F, in general. I have pretty strong values but I have a low Fi.

    We all think and feel, I just don't make decisions (for the most part) on how I feel about something.

    And that makes it very hard to communicate what is within to another person. I can use a formula like E = mc^2 to explain a theory and others would understand it since there is a common scientific language. But how do you convey your values and how strongly you feel about each one of them to someone else?

    Yes, you can try to put all the Fi-users into a box. But it will be a very big box with fluid boundaries
