So on the Fi and Fe quizzes the following were qestions asked:
Fi": "I assess other peopleĺs emotional states by reading my own internal reactions."
Fe: "I assess others people emotional states by watching thier behavior"
If I understand correctly this is one of the main differences between the two functions.
I wanted to describe what Fi is like for me and see if this sounds familiar to other Fi using folks. I could be an utter freakshow.
For me, Fi acts like an emo mirror. If I am relaxed and open, not blocking with Te or trying to emotional detach from the situation, if I see someone having an emotion, on some level I mirror that emotion myself.
So if you are happy, then I "feel" happy. I assume that this is a true physiological cascade of chemical hormones, and it truly constitutes a real emotion.
If you are in sad, I "feel" your sadness.
If you are in emotional or physical pain, I "feel" your pain. It can really hurt.
If you are in love with me, then it would make it very easy for me to "feel" in love with you.
Of course there is the very real danger I will not correctly perceive what you actually feel, and my emo response will not correctly mirror what you are really feeling.
But other Fi users, does this sound accurate?
