    Default Excitement Fi vs Fe

    I wanted to hit on a specific portion of Fe and Fi in regards to something I noticed, not as a whole.

    With an Fi person, they can feel happyness inside and not need that feeling reciprocated externally. For example someone can do something for you that they doesnt cause the same level of excitement within them. That person can smile and be happy for you, maybe laugh out of amusement at how happy you are, etc.

    With an Fe person, you need someone to experience your happyness, to match your level of excitement, to jump up and down with you. If someone does something for an Fe person and they get all excited and the other person just smiles or is happy they are excited its discouraging that the other person doesnt meet that same level of excitement and bothers you that they just smile or laugh out of amusement because you are really excited.

    Thoughts, feelings?

    Please keep this on topic and do not turn it into a bash fest.

    Fe sucks from an Fe perspective because of this? Is this even an accurate assessment?

    No. Fe just plain sucks.


    But well..Fe sucks from an Fe perspective because it often needs either coincidence or Fe in others to feel good about itself.

    Coincidence could be rationalized to Fi with shared interests

    Hmm, the bolded is pretty much me. But isn't that typical for most people? We like to be mirrored by those we connect with. That's one of the main ways strong relationships are formed.
    There is a thinking stuff from which all things are made, and which, in its original state, permeates, penetrates, and fills the interspaces of the universe.

    From an inferior Fe perspective, the second one rings true a little more. If I have good news to tell and the other person doesn't seem as excited to hear it, I'm a little bit miffed. This is only true if I care about the person, though.
    Um, yeah.

    Not a need for connection as much as happiness doesn't feel true unless others are happy with you.

    Precisely. This is actually true of small infants as well. If they aren't mirrored by their parents, they tend to suffer in their attachment security.
