    Fi can be really brave and good at times.

    I embrace my Fi, and I find IxFPs to be the two most attractive types (as types - obviously it varies by individual).

    The only non hated on functions around here are Ni, Ne & Ti. All others are seen as problematic, especially by others who don't make immediate use of them.
    I think Ti's not discussed as much because it's not as understood.
    I agree with this.

    The only one on that list which can be equated with Fi is the self-obsessed one and even then self-obsession is not limited to Fi.

    On an unrelated note my exploration of the Internet seems to bring up more than an acceptable misunderstanding of Fi (in particular that Fi is to judge your decisions by emotion.) A lot of these seem to stem from those who have typed themselves as thinking types and what's worse there does not seem to be much effort in thinking about these definitions critically to confirm their accuracy. It tempts me to look down as some thinkers as idiots (with the function make-up of the T types on a whole possessing plenty of potential for stupidity to develop.) It makes me wonder how much negativity Fi receives (and any discrimination the IFPs that utilise it receive) is unjust. Aleda asserts that Ti is not understood as much, if true then why is it understood so much less than the supposed understanding of Fi? They are both Ji functions and the proposed discrepancy seems a bit suspect to me.

    I think this is cultural. In most of the western world Ti is at the bottom of acceptability. This usually means less people dabble in their Ti and ultimately experience it consciously. Thus less people understand Ti.

    Pretty much every message out there encourages you to follow/listen to your heart, etc.
    With such strong, pro-Fi messages, a lot of Te types who would otherwise not spend that much time in their Fi, do it.
    To some extend this inferior Fi gives Fi in general a bad reputation.


    To see a Ti accepting culture, check out the UK. Esp. contemporary British comedy, etc.
    Usually the most visible use of Ti is in comedy.

    I'm British and on the whole the country seems more Te (though there is a fair amount of art) though most of the comedy for me has its share of Ne but a lot of it seems suited for SJ types with not so much Ti in my opinion.

    I was considering more the internal mechanics of Fi which doesn't seem that well considered, the perception of Fi seems to be more the output with no understanding of what goes on inside. But you have a point about the recurring "follow your heart" message in media. Though I do not think many people think Fi when they see ETJ's lose their cool.

    sometimes we don't realize our own perspective until forced to compare it with something else.

    I'd say, for example, that your sig is very Ti. Mybe u r used to some Ti behavior being OK.

    I don't feel that everyone hates on Fi. Some of the people I've come across have actually said they're particularly attracted to it. I've come across plenty of people who have said they get more easily annoyed with people who use Fe than Fi. Maybe it's just easier to take notice of the rejections rather than the words of admiration directed toward your own functions.
