    The point is they tried to bridge the gap by providing some form of logical reasoning. I'm not one to speak on others behalf but I'm guessing that is what Nocapszy and Jack Flaks issues are with you. Personally I tried my best to explain why I thought some of your explanations unnecessarily put Fi in some exceedingly positive light and Ti in a negative light. In fact you explicitly stated your frustration with Ti in one of those quotes, not to mention your constant distrust and bashing of it. As a matter of fact you implored people to try and linearly and logically describe Fi for those non Fi users. YOU ASKED for it personally, what more is there to say?

    You do realize that a majority of the posters in this thread were Ti users and actually filled a decent amount of posts in this thread therefore contributing to trying to bring a linear logical explanation of what it is whether or not you appreciated it is irrelevant, because you specifically asked for it. If you read fine lines post he explicitly stated that they had an equal chance of being wrong and in trying to explain Fi you would have to view it in the light of other functions. If you look at most of the insightful posts they did use logically reasonable explanations to describe it. That was something I felt you failed to do, go ahead and quote for me your insightful posts on Fi.

    You can get mad at something that someone said, but not at the person who said it, because then a frenzy of ad hominem, strawmen, etc, will occur. You let your anger get in the way of logical thinking, exactly what most thinkers themselves demonize. Of course its impossible to prevent yourself from getting mad, but you can prevent yourself from letting it govern your thought process.

    I was explicitly confronting the things you wrote in those particular posts, which is entirely different from what Aimahn is doing.

    The end.

    Pi can be faked. I call it sham-pi.

    What is Flak-boy doing in here anyway? He doesn't even believe in Fi, let alone understand it!?!

    Yes, the OP wasn't about Fi verses Ti but apparently for *clears throat* some here it is. It's saying more about them than the Fi users.

    The point is because we lack Fi it is somewhat necessary to view it in more Ti like terms. Otherwise why would you start the thread and ask for it to be explained in a more linear logical fashion for OTHERS to understand it?

    Seriously just answer me that.

    Was this thread not to bring a bigger audience of people who understood Fi. Do you not always try and deliver your message to your audience, at least take them in account. If im not mistaken other personalities( with differing function preferences) are included in the audience so would it no make sense to try and tailor your message for them?

    Maybe I am just insanely crazy and am reading to much into both implicit and explicit statements. Maybe I need to go back to 2nd grade and learn how to read but I'm pretty sure I read that in the OP.

    Nah, the thread is not about personality types or functions.
