With your statement, 'Fi cannot, but Ni can' --- I think that's an interesting thing to point out and thank you for the compare/contrast. I can see that.Originally Posted by uumlau
But that statement too can be confusing, then -- because it means sweeping statements like 'Fi-ers' do this and 'Fe-ers' do that isn't necessarily true, since the other functions coming into play are what really create the net result.
I mean, I think that's a reason why my intj boyfriend and I really have no issues around Fe/Fi whatsoever - this wide difference is not even something I SEE, I guess. His Fi and my Fe end up being quite similar such that I don't even know that we process things all that differently. I mean, don't get me wrong, there are definite differences, but... I don't know that they're of the nature being described in this thread. My Ti and his Fi don't really duke it out, nor my Fe or his Fi. Or my Fe to his Te, really. :confused: Is this simply that INxJ's (well, all IxxJ's) internal judging function is tertiary, so in the end isn't that 'major' when it comes to issues such as being discussed in this thread? So the OP becomes a battle of the Internal Judging Functions because those are the primary internal for those two??
I'm not really sure where I'm going with this. I guess I don't have anything that well thought-out atm.
