being an expert certainly qualifies you as an expert. Although I agree that being an expert doesn't always mean you are correct.. to downplay it is even more dangerous than to blindly accept it.
If education is to have any value at all, than we have to assume and trust that the people who have dedicated their lives to studying something are indeed correct up to this point in what they are talking about.
In regard to typology. Well this is a system that has existed for over half a century and countless hours of research and case study have gone into devising the system. In other words it is not a system based on opinion but rather hardcore data that has to be attributed to a system in order for it to be understood on a universal level.
Fi is what it is..
The problem people are having is not that Fi users wishing to discuss their Fi.. The problem Others and myself are having is the redefinition of an established system by people who do not have the authority or credentials to so.
To me it seems that here are people who wish to learn about a subject , but only on their terms.
Which is not really very responsible.
All these .."let's redefine and change Fi" therads are doing is proving the descriptions of Fi as correct.
You are taking a very subjective and personal approach to something that has already been proven and saying it is wrong because it hurts your feelings..
Saying "but wait a minute, I have Fe qualities as well.." does not mean Fi is poorly described. It means you use Fe.
Simple short version:
Fi is so subjective that it can't even get past it's own subjectivity about itself.
