    5 out of twelve. I especially relate to that lack of emotional investment part.

    Eh, most of these don't really describe me at all (except for 6, and somewhat for 8 and 12), but the one time I took the cognitive processes test I scored quite low for Fi. Maybe I underestimated myself.

    I can appreciate poetry but I don't go out of my way to read it. Some people I've meet who do read it seem so condescending about it to me, kinda turns me off it. Don't want to be like them. However, I am a music snob. I hate myself.

    We need more threads like this but about other functions, maybe Ni and Fe? I guess those two would be my most clumsily used from within my own repertoire at least.

    UM??? That's totally crap!!!! I can relate to so many things on your list, and I'm an Fi aux.

    You are? I never noticed... I always thought you were an ITJ who broke out of their shell and developed their EFP side so much they began to identify with it.

    Okay, I'm just being mean there, of course you're an FP. Perhaps I understand Fi so poorly that I don't even know what a lack of it would look like.

    The deleted ones, of course, means no identification with.

    I don't know if Fi can be clearly delineated in the way you've done it. I have a very very strong aesthetic sense that you try to label here as Fi (I like all sorts of evocative art, I love shakespeare, etc., it's very very strong -- essentially the Four wing of my 5w4 enneagram nature), all the aesthetic qualities of this "Fi" are strong with me, but as soon as it moves into personal territory (knowing your values, recognizing what you want, drawing hard lines based on personal and not universal values), I started with basically nothing and struggle with it constantly. Around other people, any F I have is far more Fe.

To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    What's it mean if I identified with all except #9 and #11?

    And why should any of those be signs of a problem?
