So I was thinking about how Fi is virtually non-existant in my general personality, and figuring this is not a good thing. For a start, as proteanmix pointed out, in a roundabout way, my lack of Fi and only weak Fe are what cause constant problems between myself and more sensitive folk.
So I got to thinking about Fi and what's about. I keep hearing the word 'values' bandied about, and TBH, most of my life I've not had a clue what it means. When people talk about these 'values', I find myself sitting quietly in a corner and thinking (but not saying, for fear of being chased by an angry, pitchfork wielding mob), "But... I don't value these things... I couldn't care less about these things..."
And so I tried to think about some things that I do value. Things I value in people, such as constancy - yes, that's the big one, I can't be doing with people whose behaviour towards me changes according to criteria that, to me, seem quite arbitrary - constancy (again, did I mention that I like constancy in people?). And integrity and sincerity. And directness, and assertiveness. In fact, I even love to see a good temper on a person
And things I value in the world, such as faith, and the endless cycles of history-and-forever, things that have stood the test of time (it's my inferior coming out there, heh), France (more specifically Normandy), good leadership, courage and progress.
The only way I could figure out that I value these things, and thereby get some clue as to what my values are, was to think of things that piss me off, and then try to figure out why.
So I invite the NT's here to tell me what they value in this life. What are your values? And if you like, tell me about some of the standard or normal values in your society that you disagree with, and why
