It's cute that an INTP is watching crappy TV and blaming it on NFPs. <3
Ha ha! I'm not blaming anyone. I love NFP's. I just don't get why if you love someone (she said to him, "I loved you then and I love you now. I've always loved you.), why is it difficult to let that be known? Not even to the whole world - just to the one you love? One-on-one, open and honest intimacy.
I mean these guys were both sad all these years because of this misunderstanding. To the point where they said it would be tragic if it didn't work out this time.
INTP: I love you toots.
INFP/ENFP: I love you too you big lug.
End of story. Happily ever after. Simple. Why is that difficult?
NTJ's are the only types that have ever made me feel emo.
ENP's are the only types that have ever made me feel like a sensor.

Well, maybe I'm wrong and it's not an Fi issue at all. But, my experiences with Fi users is that these types of conversations are difficult for them. They've even told me that it was extremely difficult for them to say things like that.
When I watched the show, it was like watching my own conversations with INFP/ENFP's all over again.
well as a fi user... if someone says they love me and i'm not sure of how i feel. i cannot will not ever say that i felt the same. i can't lie about it...can't do it to be nice not even if they want me to. it's not difficult for me to say if it's true...in fact as an Enfp i would have to say it as soon as i knew it because it will feel inauthentic not to.
There can’t be any large-scale revolution until there’s a personal revolution, on an individual level. It’s got to happen inside first.
Aw, I was watching First Love, Second Chance tonight too. That couple was so adorable; great story.
Anyway, I'm just answering this as a relationship question. There are so many reasons why people might be uneasy about saying "I love you", even if they may feel it. I'd say it has little, if anything, to do with Fi(or any other cognitive function). I denied my feelings for someone before because we were both seeing other people, and I needed time to sort things out in my own mind before I said something life changing. It's often the case that people run from strong feelings. That's not Fi, it's just human.
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.
