Since this Fi-thread rage won't end, I figured...if you can't beat them, join them! But put your own twist on it
Although I regret that this excludes our SFP siblings, there was no other alternative. I figured it was time for a thread amongst NFPs about what Fi truly is to them. As it is so individualistic, so different for everyone, it would be truly interesting to see in what ways, and find out without getting a frigging migraine when yet another non-Fi-user feels like bashing/criticizing/judging/misrepresenting this function due to misunderstandings, frustrations, miscommunication and god knows what else. Let's give each other a migraine for once, or even better...let's have a constructive discussion about this.
As for what I said earlier: though I do not deny there are definitely conflicts with Fi-users that can be irritating depending on what the situation is and there are no doubt perceptions that are transferred by certain behaviors which are negative, and I am in no way trying to make excuses for those behaviors or saying they are to be condoned all the frigging time, I'm tired of having certain things misinterpreted, misunderstood, misrepresented and not even having explanations heard or accepted as true. I figure this way, we might actually get somewhere, and those that choose to read this thread can potentially gain from it as well. Here's hoping!
