    Spanish is weird. I'm not sure. They have some odd exceptions to rules that don't always make sense (albeit not as many as in english, which could be considered a language built on exceptions to rules)

    I also spent very little time paying attention in spanish class because I'd wanted to take german instead.

    Why do you always hear about Fi bitching and praising Te at the same time, yet you don't really hear Ti bitching and praising Fe?

    Still have never heard an INTP say...I gotta use Fe hate it, but it's needed, can't get much done otherwise. Just realized this

    Hah, I don't think I've ever heard an INTP praising Fe. I do find it amusing and puzzling how the inferior Fe interacts with the insistence on being inherently logical. It seems like Fe is an imposition to Ti. And to Fi, Te is a superpower.

    Oh, they praise it all the time, it usually masquerades as some deference to the majority or consensus, but just because its wearing camouflage and not appearing to be as ESFJ-aligned as Fe-functionality usually is in MBTI discussion doesn't mean its any less illogical. There is usually a huge leap of faith that cannot be traced back to the Ti framework directly when it comes to most of their actual stances on anything. I consider them to be Fe doms by proxy.

    This made my imagine some sort of Fe-verse with some people having transmitters and some having receivers. And Fi people just bouncing around, being managed by them when we become unruly.

    EDIT: And I just realized that I've never heard of an MBTI based video game. Hmmmm....

    That's pretty much it, although Te is the opposite pole to keep the Fi people from bouncing around more than anyone else.

    I've used Fe without realising I have in the past. It's a learned trait but I know it gets results when I need it. I feel dirty though if I overuse it.
