    Default What does Fi look like in INTJ's?

    For anyone lucky enough to see Fi in an INTJ.. what does this function look like when they use it? I am hoping to get some concrete examples.

    Do INTJ's use the dark side of Fi?

    Does it only surface in love or close friendships?

    Does it make them uncomfortable?

    Any thoughts MUCH appreciated.

    From what I've seen of the INTJs through cyberspace, it appears to vary per individual. Some have learned to use it gently, others use it destructively. And even within each subcategory, there are variables, since its situation reliant. Bear in mind that observed behaviour doesn't guarantee an effective view of any internal process, especially if the observations are solely through cyberspace which is where I stand. I don't know any typed INTJs in real life although I'm beginning to wonder about a casual friend.

    It either looks like this when angry:



    Or this when in love:



    Why? Introverted feeling is in the tertiary position and is balanced by extroverted sensing subconscious when we are stressed or overexcited. We become very hypersensitive ISFPs when upset; if we are well managed we become ridiculously selfless because we don't have a decent grip on those parts of our life and need a partner to help us balance that Fi-Se dynamic.

    I try to avoid thinking; it hurts. I don't recommend it.

    I think that it makes them look weak and pathetic, like they're wallowing in their own emotions. I know that doesn't sound very nice, but that's how I see it.

    I feel kind of sorry for them, but I really want to push them back into Te mode when I see that... because I usually see the Fi use as "broken" behavior in an INTJ when it's too visible. I regard it as the greatest potential psychological weakness that exists in an INTJ, yet at the same time the function that allows them to be truly human and caring if used in moderation. Too much Fi in an INTJ is a VERY bad thing, though.

    The INTJ is usually grateful, IME, if I can manage to pull them back up out of the Fi "muck," and restore them to a healthy Ni-ego state. This is especially relevant if an NFP has basically toyed with the INTJs emotions, and gotten them locked in their Fi to the point that the INTJ can no longer function adequately.

    i think it looks really cute. even when it's the angry type. i just want to hug them.



    it's funny, because i have almost the opposite immediate response as you do, athenian. i am inclined to respect and be impressed by it, and if anything, i want to nurture it and encourage it. i tend to see Fi vulnerability not as weakness but as strength to open oneself up to others, and strength to utilize Feeling as means of dealing with oneself. as with both F functions, i respect when others are willing to wade through the pain that goes along with it.

    though i do agree that a hurt IxTJ on a bad Fi trip is a terrible thing.

    Amen to that

    And a hug is oddly enough often all they need to recharge and go back out and conquer the world

    What is the dark side of Fi? Anyway, I have a very high Fi, and I think that's why I want to be in politics, though that's also what makes me a realpolitik person.

    The ends justify the means. The point in which we stop tends towards our Fi after Te. How far we are willing to bend the morality of an action. This would also make the pride and honourable traits INTJs every so often like to portray themselves as.
