    I thoroughly enjoyed your take on it. I think all the processes can become expressed through poetry. But... I think your interpretation was more of how they're expressed through NFJs and maybe even more so INFJs? Seeing how far down the chain Fi is for NFJs it fits that it can feel unsettling to them. But I imagine that Fi wouldn't normally be explosive to NFPs (or SFPs) but more calming, more softly spun and teased and weaved throughout Ne, becoming a cross country marathan to the map of one's heart, surrounded by garter snakes and sparkling waters reflecting a comet dancing across the sky while the horizon laughs away its invisibility. FiNe or NeFi attunes your awareness to what's impossibly happening around you and what's around inside you.

    Maybe. Just a hunch. I'd like to know if NFPs think the same.

    Ooh, how I relate. My inspiration is easily startled and it’s often that I can’t write fast enough to pin it back. It’s sometimes how I deal with repressed emotions too, though mostly I write 'away from myself'. I'd rather work through them mentally but, in a way, writing my feelings out is working them out.

    To say Fi is explosive is right... It is so for me because I often am unaware of certain feelings. So when expressed it's done so in a rather bizarrely heightened schizofrantic sort of way. I almost always feel cleansed when done with it.

    More of a guess with Ni Fe Ti. To put it shortly, it's almost like thoughtful madness.

    Ti can be very good for poetry and writing. As can Se. I learnt to write by watching and learning from my ISTP sister. I'll probably never see a scene in such vivid detail, and I'll probably never find such perfect form. I've noticed ISTPs on the board are great writers too. Maybe less into poetry though? not sure.

    I think being poetic does have something to do with functions, just as arguing via the use of definitions has something to do with functions.

    On the other hand, I do not feel that functions have much to do with writing well or writing poorly. That is a craft that any function can learn to do well with time and effort, although certain types may be predispositioned to certain structures of narrative, or certain topics.

    intp's for sure can be poetic...so witty they are and such precision they have.

    definitely enfp can catch the flow the easiest and wrap themselves in words and shawls and all that jazz. entp is also pretty good at catching it skate by, but instead is more comic and gleefully mirthful mwahaha.

    nfj is bombastic and big-gestured and their insides are shaking with deep bellied laughter and a strange penetrating wisdom that belies their foolishness. a zen crazy missing-teeth mystic hee-heeing all day long on the hill. when you've absorbed every emotion, the only place to go is up up up

    infp makes you feel in ways that are not distant and arty but all-too-real, mastery of subjective experience SO REAL, yet enough creativity to encode it tho we all already believe, worn like scars

    intp is just devilish and mercilessly creative, tearing apart conventions and knocking you on your ass

    YEEEEAHH!!! I LOVE IT!

    I'm surprised so many people say we Ne Fi folks are fit to be poets.
    For the longest time, I thought poetry was the exclusive territory of INFJ's, so I wouldn't even attempt anything although I had an interest in the art.

    To put down ideas, no matter how crazy they sound and be free to decorate them as you see fit sounds very appealing to me. The open-endedness of the medium is like an invitation for Fi... although like all arts, I fear being accused of "OMG YOU DIDNT DO THIS RIGHT!"

    I hate being constrained.

    Maybe experimental poetry is a better fit?
    Ah.. to go for the raw nerve without strings attached... or being terrified of irking some ocd nazi because I accidentally sinned against the structure of a sonnet...

    Such a pretty idea..

    Yeh, sonnets and rigid structure really bore me.

    I agree, Dr. Seuss rules! My sister and I were the oldest people in the cinema when we went to see "Horton Hears a Who" .

    I'm not usually poetic in the traditional sense, but I like to think my precise concise word usage and logical structure is poetry in its own way.

    Though, I can get more traditionally poetic in two kinds of situations. When I'm attempting humour, or when I'm attempting to describe my emotions. Both are probably the result of my Ne function.
