    Doesn't matter, you understood the message. I just honestly feel bad for you and wanted to help. It is a tragedy in the sense that you fail to recognize your own flaws and that in this, they are the cause of your demise. It's like I'm watching Shakespeare.

    I really don't get this. How does having a problem with someone equate to my demise? You may not have noticed, I'm a bit foolhardy on the internet.

    Hello fellow Fi users,

    Am I the only one who finds it difficult explaining Fi to non-Fi users???

    Every poet, writer, philosopher and lyricist that I cherish is an Fi dom, or user.

    I feel frustrated because I have difficulty explaining the reasoning behind this Fi connection, other than saying, I dunno, so-in-so just *gets it*.

    So, I implore you, somebody, (anybody), try to linearly and logically explain Fi, for I simply cannot, asking me to do so is like asking me to justify my, I don't know, my entire existence, I guess.



    K, Looking forward to your responses.

    Here's the fact: Fi is not intellectually flattering.
    You like to think of yourself as intellectual, which you may very well be (I'll leave my judgement out of this) but I can assure you, it's not the calculations I Fi that deem you this quality.
    Your shortsight: just because you're an Fi user and Fi isn't a great intellectual tool doesn't mean you can't excell intellectually.

    What the good Captain ought to have said was that it's difficult for her to explain her Fi judgements -- what Fi does for her, rather than Fi itself. The function alone is simplex at it's most confusing points.

    And now I'm also thinking that the way the title is even phrased already places the function itself into the deep and impenetrable fog, leading you to think there's something I don't get!!! I liken it to when you get a brain teaser or a riddle and you know the answer is embedded somewhere in there and if you look hard enough you'll get it. But this riddle is that there is no answer in there, joke's on you. The riddle turns into a knock-knock joke and then you're like damn, that was so obvious. OR, for all you party monsters out there, the bouncers will purposely let a long line form outside of the club to make people think 'what's going on in there?' Now when you get inside the place can be jumpin or you have two lame people doing the running man on the dance floor. Once again, I'm not sure what I just wrote so I'll leave it alone.

    Honestly, this is what I think people make Fi out to be: "Fi: You only get it if you got it." Should I believe the hype? Should I wait in that line? I'm in the audience and I'm waiting for the main act to come onstage and it's been 45 minutes. Will it be worth it? I dunno.

    Wow, please be more responsible, Jack..

    You are accusing me of something I didn't do and you conveniently fail to back up your accusation with any substantive proof.

    I'm to lazy right now to sort through all of those posts, sorry.

    There is a decided lack of substance in many of CC's posts and if you in fact look back through the thread you will find surprisingly that the core of the insightful responses and arguments were made by Ti users. A number of other types that did not use Ti were also similarly frustrated by this running around in circles and not elucidating at all what Fi was until near the end of the thread.

    I found this definition of Fi

It helps us know when people are being fake or insincere or if they are basically good. It is like having an internal sense of the “essence” of a person or a project and reading fine distinctions among feeling tones.
    It seems oddly appropriate, having just waded through this thread. Will someone buy me a beer please?

    That your personal problems with someone prevent you from abstaining from emotions that would otherwise allow you to reason soundly.

    Yes I would because that quote you know actually provided something more than a brief 2 or 3 line sentence with a glowingly positive review of what it does.

    So for that bravo!!

    Okay. Never let anyone make me mad. Never, as opposed to like once a month, which is how it is now. Got it.

    *keeps Fi in check*

    Um, when did I ever claim to be the most insightful poster, in this thread or ever?!?!?

    And I honestly feel like I am in the twilight zone, for realz.



    First of all, this thread isn't about Fi against Ti, and I believe heart, FineLine, sarah, disregard, syptyq(sp?), harmonic, anii, Fiery Phoenix, and Mo the opera lover, all made some pretty insightful posts, all the while none of them being Ti users.

    I also love how you chose to select next to none of my posts that got more in depth regarding Fi.

    Hey, no fair! I didn't complain about all my insightful posts being left out of the attack thread on me!
