Yes, yes, yes. This is dead on accurate. Wow Orobas. You have made several really awesome posts in the past 24 hours. You've got to put all this stuff in a book or something.

Another Episode of Cognitive Theatre
Bob is driving Mary crazy at work. She's really stressed out about it, so she goes to her friend Margaret for support. How would this dialogue?
Scene One: Mary is an ENFP (Ne>Fi>Te); Margaret is an INFP (Fi>Ne>Si)
Mary: Bob is driving me nuts. He's being sooo INTJ. He needs to turn on his social radar sometimes.
Margaret: I've had that problem with INTJs, too. (grins.) My ex-husband was an INTJ. Let me tell you what he did...
Color Commentary: Fi communicates with Fi via what Orobas so aptly called "the refluxed 'I' statement." And this is exactly how my INFP best friend and I would have this conversation. It's like we both have the same secret decoder ring, so we know that the other person is being affirming and supportive. In fact, this is how I most naturally feel affirmed and supported. So I'd love to see what an Fe user would write about an Fe-oriented scenario.
Scene Two: Mary is an ENFJ (Fe>Ni>Se) and Margaret is an INFJ (Ni>Fe>Ti)
Color Commentary: ????
I think this would be fascinating.
(Oh, and sorry INTJs. I had to pick somebody's type. I figured an INTJ could take it. )
