So, I've been wondering about this...
A lot of people suffer from inferiority complexes - thinking you're not as good as other people, that you're a burden or a bother to them, that you have nothing to offer, etc. Feelings of envy or resentment, as well as depressive states, may follow. Of course, this isn't necessarily permanent or anything, but it can linger for long periods of time.
Well, here's the thing... Sometimes it seems as if strong Fi users don't really suffer from these complexes, even if they suffer from depression (clinical or otherwise) or are extremely shy. It often sounds, to me, as if they're aware of their own worth, but that they're afraid other people might reject or misunderstand them. In other words, the sorrow comes from them feeling as if no one understands or accepts them, rather than from suspecting their own worthlessness or feeling as if they need to "validate their existence" (or, for that matter, feeling as if they lack a self). That, mind you, doesn't mean I think of them as conceited or self-satisfied; I know for a fact the healthy ones are always open to developing themselves.
Basically, then: is this sort of "internalized worthlessness" more common among Fe types than Fi types? Is there no correlation at all and I'm only seeing things?
