    Though we can hide it better, I think it's more difficult for IxFx to go through the solitude alone. The inner-struggle often takes so much time to heal as well. IxFx (especially with J function) often have a great tendency to explode in public and letting all of our Fe running everywhere. So I honestly would rather trade the "T" with "F" as it's difficult for me to be expected from others that we're independent but really, deep inside of us we're just the exact opposite.

    So yeah, it's tough.

    I don't know, both bring their challenges. ExFx types are more likely to wear their hearts on their sleeve and their emotional expressiveness can sometimes get them into trouble or scare people away. IxFx types feel things just as strongly but are more likely to hold it in. Holding things in for too long isn't always healthy. They may hold things in for a long time and then "explode" out of the blue.

    Does the OP mean IxFx vs. ExFx or Fi user vs. Fe user?

    I think in terms of getting over things and moving on, I'd definitely rather be ENFP or INFP than ENFJ or INFJ. That's probably the angle I'd approach it from.

    being I?F? sounds like it friggin sucks (on offense intended, most I?F?s I know just seem like life is very hard for them and they're hypersensitive to conflict).
    being E?F? doesn't seem so bad. being an ENFP just sucks if you're a guy because the vast majority of men are STs and don't understand you at all

    A little bit of context, I see the I and E functions as about experiencing others as energising or draining, given that would finding others energising or draining make it easier or more difficult if you were using the feeling cognitive trait more than the alternatives? Would you need more or less co-regulation of emotional states or support in a crisis or be more emotionally crisis prone if you are an I or E Feeler?

    Maybe I am having a hard time understanding what you are saying but I think the differences aren't necessarily if you are an I or an E, but if you process emotions as an I or an E. Using Fi (as an external process) is fairly draining for me after awhile... Fe even more so. Yet, I know my XNFJ friends could go hours on emotional things with others. I am more of an emotional sprinter .

    I can handle the emotions of one person in a "one-on-one" kind of setting for a decent amount of time. The larger the group the more difficult. Which is a main reason why I loathed pep rallies so much as a kid.

    I always thought pep rallies were weird as hell. I would sit in the back and be like "why is everyone being so emotional? yuck"

    Ahhhh, moving on is a hard thing to do, even for the FPs, especially when some of us are/were unwilling to ask for help. But I think it has more to do with being introverted than it does being FP.

    i'm not much good at moving on, either.
    but i did love pep rallies!


    anyway.

    ExFx good things in my experience:
    cheering people up, inspiring, motivating, being emotional support, encouraging unity (sometimes enforcing unity), being a trailblazing/troubleshooting leader, very calm when others are having emotional crises, reading "atmosphere" of a group, skilled at cross-communication / translation / mediation, very often externally feeling-engaged, ease of reading individuals and quickly adapting to their emotional states.

    ExFx bad things in my experience:
    getting lonely easily, needing external engagement to get out of an emotional funk, getting really wound up after more than a day or so without human interaction, being overly demonstrative when i get really angry (the fabled ENFP "Te attack"), that awful empty feeling after the party's over and you're driving home alone (probably ExFP-specific).
