    Don't know, but it is something I'm prone to do when I get really annoyed.

    Yeah, I was going to say something about moderation. Like it's probably not the best thing for INTJs to dabble in feeling land for too long, or they, well probably turn into basket cases.

    Guess for INFJs it's more like, turning into robots...

    Yeah, "robotic" descibes it perfectly. And I've seen a few INTJ friends get stuck in Fi for too long - it's very squelchy!

    So, unless I misunderstand, the reason I react badly to having this Fi be called "gooey" or "mushy" or, heaven forbid, "warm", is because I regard it as fragile and seek to protect it from assault.

    I wonder... it may be the way I answer these things, but on those cognitive processes tests I keep on having Te pop out slightly higher than Ni (with Fi and Se respectively definite third and fourth, so I'm remain INTJ, not some reclusive E).

    I wonder if that makes a difference to the nature of the Fi.

    Or if the Fi made a difference to the development of the Te... OMG! Will nothing halt the inner ravages of this mythical beast!?



    Oh, and INFJs? I may be misperceiving Fe here, but that cold, hard inner robot... she ain't that hidden.

    Meh.

    People project whatever they like. I don't mind. If people knew just how much I really didn't care, well, it could bring up all sorts of complications that I wouldn't want to deal with. Especially, in a work or academic environment. The strategy is energy efficient. No extra expense is necessary on my part.

    I wouldn't place too much trust in those cognitive function tests. They can be interesting, but they're still a work in progress and are considerably less reliable than the MBTI.

    I've read that it's best for you INTJs to approach your own Fi via your Te function; I guess something like this:

    "It's important for me to get in touch with my own inner values. I shall schedule some time to do this. Which activities can I participate in to help me to do this efficiently and effectively?"

    Abso-freakin-lutely! Get in there via the Te. Because shockingly horrible things happen if someone aims straight at the Fi alone. And that, I think, is why I don't like this "gooey" thing. It damn well ain't gooey because it's got an older brother'll kick your ass!




    Too hysterical?

    No, thanks.

    Quite a few INFJs possess the tendency to care too much. The martyr syndrome isn't very robotic either.

    Actually, to get to my Fi I tried to ignore Te.
    All the data from Ni had to go somewhere without Te's compulsive desire to ask why.
