    LOL, and of course my SFP siblings..I initially didn't include this because I'm aware that NFP and SFP Fi is bound to be very different. But it's proven quite interesting to see the difference, so don't leave

    i really like this thread. it's given me many new perspectives to consider.

    Yes, I do believe NFPs act like cataclysts and NFJs as...well almost, herders and keepers. We both guide and solve in our own way. They'll provide workable fixes to keep things going smooth, sort out stuff on the fly, to keep the work going, and guide people around big issues to make sure they don't get sucked into it, to keep them safe.

    Me, personally, I'll guide you through the big issues instead of around and get to the bottom of them with you, so you can solve it yourself. So you have the tools to deal with it if it ever would occur again. Or, for that matter, so you can make sure it doesn't happen again. To show you that mirror inside so you can see who you are and hopefully discover all that you can be.
    i see this differently. we (NiFe) see the shape of the conflict based on plotting the landmarks, whereas you have something worked out that you find recognizable in the situation. neither of us can fucking hand someone an envelope with all of our Ni or Fi currency in it. you can't communicate the whole of what you see/know. we try to construct questions, probe, explore, allow articulations to emerge thru dialogue. you give people a space where they feel the traditional associations/meanings/value judgments are lifted, to be free of judgment, etc. it's very cathartic. you're very skillful at anticipating, merging with, and navigating emotions, you have a lot of tools and tricks and knowledge at maneuvering around, a lot of experience. i don't have that at all, i try to show people new ways of seeing the problem, new ways of seeing, expanding their field of vision, massaging their contradictions, tensions, language traps, etc. an attempt to reveal what is there, to clear away noise, etc.

    Fi feels compelled to deal with what it sees as real problems, which are its own biggest problems. in that arena, it is at its most skilled. same as Fe, but we're looking at it in a different way (altho both infx types are the withdrawing types of e4, e5, and e9, so their projects are similar). Fe (nfjs) master a way of seeing the world/future, Fi (nfps) master a way of merging with experience to know the world.


    a question: Fi and Ti absorb/create truths in various forms. they are considered internal reasoning processes. they get information from an extroverted perceiving function and synthesize, test, simulate, develop truth. they catalogue all their experience and determine, define, and discover its value/truth. T is defined as logical, linear, direct, causal, and F as implicit, vague, holistic, circular. what is Fi reasoning like? where does it relate to language? what is the difference for Jung between thinking and feeling? a head/heart thing (which sounds more like the enneagram)? what part of you feel likes you KNOW? what does knowing feel like? when cataloging experience, when knowing, how much Si do you detect? how does experience turn into Fi? Si is more vivid when Fi is more intense, which means correlates with more depth, more advanced Fi judgment, a bigger fucking problem, more complex concentrated committed attention?

    I couldnt tell you how much I get stuck in this circular pattern trying to analyze feelings using Ti. Its like I cause you to...which causes me to...which causes you to...which causes me to... Ok, one of us is gonna have to change, or you could enjoy the cause and affect and be like, ok maybe 5 more minutes in this cycle. Ti does not work with analyzing this stuff and must revert to Fe.

    Ooh..I really relate to the bolded, what you've written re. NiFe. Thanks for verbalizing this. NiFe showing new ways of seeing things, and unraveling the stuff that might be causing said emotion, as contrasted with Fi concentrating on and being more proficient with the emotional content/realm itself.

    Well, it would be criminal to deny you my penetrating insight.

    Lemme read and I'll be back to comment... sometime. *b*tchslaps his P*

    Very Te/Fi, I think.
    The clans may end up united.
    My ENTP best friend informed me yesterday that she had resolved the issue. "All that you Te/Fi users need is a box and Te rules given to us with no room for questions allowed. Then you can be contained in your box and all of your Fi defects can be worked out there so that others are not bothered by it since the rest of the world doesnt have "those" problems."

    I have tried so hard to understand, flex, bend, and give in to understanding the other. I have tried to become the other to appreciate every opinion, every perspective. I have tolerated selfish, narcisstic, lying, cheating, destructive patterns of behavior from others and excused as it is not my place to judge them or that i need to try and understand them.

    So to be told my integrity, my idealism, my loyalty, my teamwork, my strength, my resiliance, my dedication, my willingness to fight for just causes is all a defective flaw that needs to be contained? notice all those "my's"? Fi at it's best.

    Whatever the Fi/Te combo is, IT IS ME. I AM NOT DEFECTIVE.

    You can call Fi self centered.

    Except that Fi isnt just me. I am not an isolated singularity. Fi is everyone I have ever cared for, it spills from me, through me, out into those around me and bends and shapes me to find a way to care for them via Te.

    I am Fi. I am Me. I am Them. I will not stand down and let them suffer. I may not be able to comfort them, but I can fight for them.

    Ti is an isolated singularity, unique by definition. alone.

    I read that wrong. I thought your ENTP was advising, all you need is to box. It sounded reasonable for a moment.


    I wonder at this flexy bendy thing. My first reaction is to claim that no one ever truly flexes because you always positively have to approach your own choices with your own mechanisms. So one might take in a lot of information from others, and hold off decision-making... oh wait, "hold off decision-making"... that's it there, isn't it? Flexing is the act of delaying your own choice?

    Genuine question: this delay... it does make a difference, doesn't it? It is purposeful and valuable?


    (Well, of course it is, or it wouldn't be the persistently and maturely advocated thing it is. *creases brow attempting to accept*)




    Fi is a temperature gauge. People get hot or cold on something for a reason. Hell, maybe F itself is a temperature gauge. Sounds reasonable. Feeling exists for a reason. Woohoo, rational proof of feeling's purpose.

    I don't know about others, but I usually don't think well on my feet. I'm guessing it's because of my Fi getting input from an uncontrolled Ne. I can't be sure of the decision I make will be the right one without getting all the possibilities that Ne discovers. Sometimes Ne will give me a positive (hot?) reading as the initial reaction, sometimes it will feed me the negative (cold?) reading.

    It also depends on how idealistic we are. The more idealistic, the more benefit of the doubt (flex) we give others. Perhaps it is all linked together. An idealistic Fi-dom with low self-esteem will bend so much to other peoples' wishes that he would seem to have no backbone at all...

    That was also a very good way of describing the difference yeah

    Fi ephiphanies to me come in a sudden burst and a myriad of emotion. That feeling of 'Omg!!!', tightening of the chest, sudden warmth. It's like a puzzle falling into place when suddenly you can see the underlying intention, motivation, whatever it was you were analyzing. When just analyzing without there being any real mysteries, it feels like recognizing and pushing the right buttons to find your way through a maze. Once you understand how everything works, navigating becomes relatively easy, depending on the force of emotions you're dealing with. Complex problems where you still have to find your way and there's a ton of factors playing can feel like your head is about to explode (Ne-overload and not enough room for Fi to process). Writing things down and mulling things over while doing something else often allows for the information in your head to be sorted in the logical way (like solving a riddle or undoing an entire bunch of knots in a ball of yarn). It takes time, resolve, patience and trust that you will get it right, and the willingness to wait for the pieces to fall into place, to wait for the right info to come to you and triggering the correct info. Gaps in the fabric of emotional logic are instantly recognized and straightened out as soon as the right info is at hand. Info is screened for value, relevance, completeness and bias, before plugged in, much like you would not force a puzzle piece in the wrong spot.

    I could go on, but let's see if this already makes sense
