When I say Fi users don't really understand Fe users, I mean Fi/Te users don't really understand Fe/Ti users. (And vice versa)
Not that we literally don't understand the words the other people are saying...but that we seem to start from different sets of assumptions, and we sometimes think we're arguing with each other when we're really just missing -- we're in different interpretation frames.
No one is "right". I'm just saying people tend to weigh their assumptions higher than other people's assumptions, which leads to a big miscommunication.
I think that different judging functions are the biggest difference in MBTI types, at least in terms of communication. I communicate best with TPs and FJs, even ESTPs and ESFJs. It's not that I can't communicate with TJs and FPs, it's just that I find we misunderstand each other more.
i'm sorry...i was just referencing the bolded portion and saying it was interesting...because...yeah...makes sense...neither is listening with a clear head...the assumption is there and colors the words...i get that...
the other part of the post wasn't directed at you...sorry.
all new concepts to me... very interesting
Show me where I "explicitly" asked those with Ti to explain Fi, please.

You stated later on in the Thread that the last time you checked that you specifically put it in the NF forums, and that you didn't explicitly or implicitly ask for Ti users to help explain Fi. I proved to you in your OP that it could not be read any other way than you asking for Ti users to help you explain Fi because you felt your Ti skills were lacking.
And look on the first page of the thread you SPECIFICALLY and EXPLICITLY asked Jack Flack to explain Fi using Ti.

My cold, snide, intellectual life is just a veneer, behind which lies the plywood of loneliness.
You cannot go to a part of the brain and say: "There! Thats some Fi! He/She's got a whole lot of it! Must be a dom Fi."
Neither does F nor T exist.
These things are imaginary, constructs of our minds (or rather the construct of the minds that created the system, which we now abide to) to try to explain and bring order to personality, which is a more complex, less definable, and less predictable thing that mbti would like.
Physically, we know the difference between introverted and extroverted brains. As for the other functions... perhaps in the future, all elements of our personality will be able to be pinned down as what part of the brain/body they are associated with.
