    how does it feel to be fi? I dunno after you've felt something for so long, you forget about it, becomes naturally, it becomes a background thing.
    In no likes experiment.

    that is all

    i dunno what else to say so

    I'm beginning to write a sort of Alice in wonderland gone completely wrong book about a juvenile who goes through a coma and has permanent nightmares. Writing is a great outlet for INFPs. There's lots of tweaking you do to get things feeling just right, and so is a natural domain for my deepest desires and feelings. I also write music and that goes through exactly the same process (how about a flat 9, no too dissonant, doesn't go well with me. How about add 9 and sus 4? much better, this is what I want: an unresolved sound). Then Ne will go off on tangents saying "what about this, or how about this, maybe we can half that and use the other half next paragraph".

    I naturally prefer writing but don't mind having my stuff on the computer. It's the same deal with a kindle: it's more efficient but artificial. If it gets the job done faster then I will not refrain from using it.

    I hope that answers your question.

    Yeah, I can be a bit like that too.

    As a sidenote have there been any times you've acted like an ENFJ? When feeling bad\angry or among friends? Accused people of having low Fe-worth? Or tried to organize people\friends around yourself?
    There are times where I behave in ways that are similar to FJ traits (like the ones you mentioned), yes, perhaps even NFJ-like I guess, but of course this isn't literal demonstration of these types. I don't see a clear pattern as to why I get into those modes.

    I do have this thing where I try to channel a ENFJ personality when I go to job interviews for example - but that's more of a conscious thing. I can't say it comes off like that, but it helps to lift my outward manner a little - to be a bit more confident, friendly, relaxed, personable and mentally-present. Natural INFP behaviour can be a bit of a downer it seems.

    Sure, thanks. And that sounds like a cool book.

    That's interesting how you write music, and connect the process to writing! I don't think I have much of a sense for that at all. Of course some Fe users write music and lyrics, but it seems to be more in the realm of Fi.

    So what do Fi-dom feel throughout the day? Is there a predominant tone\vibe to it?
    It "feels" like thinking, through a lens trying to zoom in on what is truly significant & meaningful. Or it's like walking around with a very lopsided, internal scale, weighted down on one side with beauty & perfection & eternity, and waiting for something - anything - to move that scale.

    Emotional feelings are just signals of sorts. In a typical day, I don't respond to mundane stuff strongly because it isn't important. I can get irritated with myself for running late or being messy, but I brush stuff off pretty easily because it doesn't strike me as important. I get called both temperamental & patient/easy-going by the same people.

    I often have an air of indifference or slight melancholy. The latter is due to a general sense of disappointment in life. As @Southern Kross notes, this is partially what leads to dreaminess & absent-mindedness - checking out of dull & frustrating reality to create something which feels meaningful & colorful in your head. Internally, I have a much higher flux of emotion in response to my "inner world" than I do externally to the "real world".

    I can be in prolonged modes of excitement when things are "happening" - stuff is tipping the scales beyond small, daily pleasures. Potential is emerging...Ne sort of alerts the Fi that this is a significant experience unfolding or time period that can lead to something meaningful.

    I can relate to SK's internal snarkiness too, which is some elitism directed towards many areas of life. I wouldn't say that defines me, or not since my teens anyway. More often the critical voice is directed at myself, which also leaves me somewhat inhibited. In any case, the visible emotion, if any, is not necessarily in direct relation to what appears to have triggered it, if related at all. This causes confusion with others, of course.

    I don't like rules & dislike most games, including sports that are games. Competition strikes me as silly (I...just....can't....care...). I like indoor rock climbing, walks & hikes in beautiful nature, riding a bike, swimming, yoga....more relaxed & individual activities.

    No, it means that Se-doms are physiologically (inherently) advantaged (adept) when it comes to sports, physical activity, ability to manipulate the physical environment... That's how they are wired... The functions in our typing represent layers of the physical world that we are relatively more attuned to... It doesn't mean we cannot register or manipulate layers that we do not possess as a function...

    So there's this internal reception and fine-tuning going on...kinda like trying to fine-tune to a radio station you love(d) deeply...?

    I used to keep a journal on Myspace, but I stopped using it. I hate writing by hand since it hurts my arm, and I want to say more words than my arm lets me write. So I type. I need to get a blog started soon because I'm slipping into bad writings habits.

    Oh, I misread this. Playing? Uh... no, I'm not one for physical competition. Or competition at all. But definitely not being physical.

    I like watching sports though. Hockey and tennis mostly.

    I tried journaling in high school. It didn't take. I write for reasons other than self-awareness. Writing about my deepest feelings or whatever would get boring fast, and it seems so...precious. Keeping a journal is good for a lot of people. I just can't take myself or my life seriously enough for it do me any good.

    Because it's the thoughts and words that matter, typing doesn't seem impersonal to me. My handwriting is barely legible, so there really isn't enough Wite-out in the world for the times I choose to write by hand. I also prefer the dynamic quality of using a computer. I can copy, delete, and rearrange the text more easily than with paper.

    It is having your conscience screaming at you constantly. Whoever said "do what is right even should the world end" was definitely an Fi-Dom.
