    I was raised by a family that I *think* are all Fi dominant (some are for certain), and I test rather high on that function (likely as a result). Certain differences come out during conflict. Fi is empathetic, but from a specific vantage point. It seems to have a somewhat constructed concept of the subjective world with strong opinions about it. It has arrived at certain conclusions that fit its model. The empathy is quite strong for those things that fit into its model, but for those things that fall outside, there can be breaks in the empathy. I think the difficulty in describing Fi results from the way a subjective model of the world is constructed based on so much nuance and those things which defy measurement. Fi can produce some of the gentlest, kindest people, but these are sometimes people for whom admitting a flaw or some way in which they have not measured up to their ideal is especially traumatic. When something conflicts with that model of the world it is sometimes emotionally necessary for Fi to lash out.

    edit: Maybe I should ask: I understand that F and T dominants are considered the "rationalists" with constructed inner world views while N and S are the irrationalists with a less structured inner world. Is this correct? if not then my Fi bit would apply more to Ni I think. I'm actually a little confused on the subject not being certain if I am Fi or Ni dominant myself, but noting a difference in the way myself and some of the people close to me structure their inner worlds.

    It's interesting and amusing seeing how passionate some people with Fi can be. It seems like it would be to draining to maintain that, does it fluctuate a lot or is it pretty steady. Do you constantly sort of adjust your internal emotional state according to whats going on externally or is it more calm and controlled internally until something notable occurs externally.

    hmm.. yeah

    Do certain seemingly simple things sometimes elicit really complex and deep emotions in you. Like maybe seeing animals or just something that reminds you of something that was emotionally significant. Like when you meet new people and you see there little mannerism's, actions, words do they elicit deeper and more intricate things in you that aren't immediately observable to others.

    whoa...this is weird...haha...i've never thought about this stuff...but yeah...i think so...i think i gather a whole lot from facial expression...eyes...body language...tone...i almost actually feel like i can hear their thought process...sometimes even the self correcting that people do...which sounds bizarre...and i'm sure it's not actually audible...just the feeling behind them...i'm sure i sound like a nutjob for that but...i don't know how else to describe it.
