    The truths that I subscribe to, I believe to be universal truths.

    I don't claim to know things that I don't understand, but I do understand the things that I know.

    Yes because Fe preceeds Fi in the order of functions.

    In essence they are the same, the only difference is the output of Fe is inspired directly by an external object, yet the output of Fi is inspired by an internal emotive mindset. So in the case of Fe, the emotion is evoked directly by the work of art, yet in the case of Fi by a preconceived emotive perception of the work of art. For the Introverted Thinker the emotion is inspired by the analysis of the work of art, generally cannot emote before having thought through the circumstances. However, there is no subjective filter of emotive perceptions in this case, the emotional reaction is aimed directly at the object itself, in this case it is the analysis of the work of art. For this reason, you will almost never hear an INTP say, I feel this way simply because I do, I have no will to explain that. In addition to the very rational nature of the INTP, the Feeling of this type is very simple because it is easily traced to the external stimulus.

    The mindset of a TJ (Fi) is different, first there is an analysis, yet Fi does not emote directly in relation to the analysis, but to some mystical emotive perception interposed between the analysis and the process of commiting the emotion to such an analysis.

    In short, extroverted functions respond directly to the object, introverted functions respond to the subjective perception interposed between the function and the object.

    Your word choice is very flimsy and contradicting.beliefs )
    One thing is clear about her statement. It is vague. However, I do not see a contradiction. Explain where you see the contradiction.

    She did say that Thinkers are more likely to dispute what others hold to be the truth, yet she did not state that Feelers have the courage of conviction.

    A more faithful interpretation would be Feelers do not dispute their beliefs with others, whilst Thinkers do. No explicit remark has been made concerning who is more confident in beliefs (has courage of conviction).

    I have trouble associating universal truths with subjective opinons, correct me if I'm wrong but isn't this thread title Fi: you only get it if you have it?

    Wow some universal truth. Does that not inherently seclude everyone else who is not an Fi user, or is universal only to a certain subset of people? we can go on and on but you will find that all your doing is partitioning this universal truth so it is closer to your beliefs.

    In my opinion a universal truth would be more along the lines of men and women have different reproductive organs, something that cannot be disputed( yes I know call on a minuscule subset to refute this) and can be understood by anyone regardless of their personality, age, sex, title, basically any classification system you chose to use.

    This is all true.

    More reasonable because they are curbed by logical reasoning. For example, a Thinker's emotional reactions to external circumstances are usually in direct proportion to the circumstances themselves because the Thinker makes an effort to understand things for what they are. Inevitably, we all emote to situations in accordance to what we deem for them to be. For example, if I think the person who crashed into my car made an innocent mistake, I will have little negative emotion towards him. If I think that he was trying to kill me, I will have a lot of negative emotion towards him.

    In reiteration of my thesis and in summary, the emotional reaction of the thinker is reasonable because it matches the circumstances.

    She never said that Fi has exclusive access to "universal truth".

    The thing about her statements is that they are constantly vague. That allows her to twist it with each new counter argument and claim a different interpretation on each one which gives her an absurd amount of flexibility. Basically the further we argue, the less likely we are to be arguing the same thing.

    She did say that Thinkers are more likely to dispute what others hold to be the truth, yet she did not state that Feelers have the courage of conviction.
    What I got from her statement was that she has a strong belief in what she believes to be true. Going by her quote that doesn't necessarily mean it is true.

    Fi is merely a *way* to apprehend universal truth, or "truth".

    That is all.
