    So it's coincidence; you don't voluntarily choose to open up to someone at any point?

    It's...natural; most of the time we keep our "negativity tanks" at critical mass when we're around people we can't trust--the more we mature, the more true this is and the more we control who we "storm" around. Though with an INFP, like I said, once would be enough before we'd calm down and talk things out with you regularly cause you understand us.
    Love is the point.

Then, at the end of the day, if I don't forget, I have to attend to Fi, who due to neglect, will fall over on the gas line and cause the entire house to burn down in flames if I don't.

    As I said, Fi can be severely annoying sometimes. When not used correctly, it will undermine the respect and authority I've garnered from others with Fe by forcing me to serve as a morality cop, often arresting Fe from going to far into selfish manipulation. It keeps me in check.
    It's not Fi. If it were Fi, the INFPs would find it. It's Ti. Poki found it, so it's Ti. (Ti, in service of Fe, as the deepest, darkest, unknown but always there truth and logical consistency to feeling.)

    Thanks kalach. It is truth and logic. Its what Fe tries to keep people out of. Fe pushes people into Fi to avoid them going into Ti and ENFJs can use it to push themselves out of Ti to avoid facing the truth.

    I don't. Not anymore. I've embraced my internal logician because I realized that the truth needs to be observed; Fe will often determine how I use Ti (like telling the truth, but in a nice way), but Ti is present, and I'm not afraid of it anymore.

    Watch out for ENFJs, they can see dead people. Uh, I mean, they can read people.

    Sounds like you have Fe under control. I dont always "tell" the truth, but I always use it as a guide. I have never hid from it and always hit it dead on no matter what which means I have to do something with the feelings that get uncovered. The ones I cant ignore my Ni comes in and says "hey all of this could have possibly happened linked all these ways, are you sure your judgement is correct". Its my storm, but its a storm to create confusion in myself. TiNi is the storm and as long as we run/hide from our feelings it will continue to be used as a storm.

    The fact that ENFJs seem to have a much better time with Ti than INTPs do with Fe has always baffled me. I've begun to think that the qualities of the dominant function and how that affects mindset has to do with it. Fe seems more accepting, cohesive, cooperative in general and can find a place for things, like Fuzzy mentioned; whereas I find Ti is just so stubborn, so cutting, so exacting and exclusive it has trouble letting go of control for a process that [to Ti at least] wouldn't know truth if it slapped it in the face.
