Ok..welcome, I'm going to try and teach the basics of Fi here.
In other words, any questions when it comes to Fi, feel free to ask. I promise to answer them straight forward so you can analyze, understand or whatever it is you want to do with that information. No questions are off limits, including those that are considered 'touchy'.
Also, if you formulate a question in a F(i)-hostile way (without realizing it), I will reword it back to you, to a) confirm that that is what you're asking and b) teach how to word stuff properly without an emotionally negative ring to it. Yes, I'm aware this is arrogant, but hey, T's ask the same thing of us when debating logic shit. So it's only fair to teach you the rules.
I also encourage you to think twice about the formulation and what you're exactly asking before posting. Even if you're eager, passionate, annoyed, whatever it is because of the analysis process you're doing yourself, take a deep breathe and ask yourself how you can ask whatever is going on in that brain of yours in a constructive way.
I'd like to avoid mudslinging all together.
I appreciate the input of all my fellow NFPs of course, but I'm kinda wondering...maybe it's a good idea to make several of these threads? That way you get several perspectives as Fi is pretty individual, without it all getting muddled together? People can post the same question in several threads and see what answers it yields.
Alternatively, I'd love your input, but ask that you either apply the same techniques as me, which I listed above in dealing with ruffled feathers and not let it get you defensive, angry, annoyed, rolling your eyes, etc, something this topic just tends to provoke instantly. I'll have a tough time doing the same myself, but I feel it's the only way we can ever really get to the bottom of this. And I do feel we could benefit from having Fi dissected and viewed through the eyes of others as well.
If this doesn't go well, I might ask that I do the responding in this thread, to see if maybe having only 1 NFP answering helps to keep the chaos to a minimum.
Alright..let's see if anyone out there is still willing to go near the subject. Hit me
