Over at personalitycafe, I mentioned that Fe is more
emphaticempathetic than Fi, generally speaking. This was met with a large amount of disagreement and criticism.
So, am I wrong?
Part of the definition of Fe is empathy, connecting with others, and experiencing others' emotions quite intensely. Fi is, by definition, more focused on one's own emotions and inner feelings. This isn't to say that Fi isn't capable of empathy, not by any means, but Fe is more natural at it.
These thoughts are what led me to say that Fe is "more
emphaticempathetic." To be more precise, Fe is more natural at being emphaticempathetic.
EDIT: I made an error. When I say emphatic I mean empathetic. I know, they have two completely different meanings. But I did mean empathetic.
