I have had many experiences lately with strong Fi users (ISTJ, ENFP, ESFJ) that make me think we ENTP are not just living in a mask, but due to Ne Fe are enabled to connect with any kind of function. It is not just an external mirror, but more like the mirror in the Matrix. You see the reality around you just looking, but if you reach out to touch it, allows you to go through to the other side. Like Ti Si is fully capable of interpreting and turning on the Fi, Ni we entp see/experience in other people.
I know I probably end upcoming across as malevolent, shifty, and just plane scary to people who have know me for a while. I think this is because I "feel" the other person, learn them and then can predict outcomes in large groups of people based on this "people memory" that I have. Great for leading groups, but one-on one interactions may not align with what people are expecting. Ti gives me the capability to disregard the (real) feeling I have for people when the problem at hand requires a decision that goes against someone I care about.
After enough time (1-2 deep conversations per person) it is like the 3D posters. I don't see random patterns but the full intricate picture automatically. Now that I have been working with an average of 35-50 people at work daily, this is happening even quicker.
I actually resent this sometimes. There are folks I don't want to connect to, but it is not like I have a lot of choice. I usually have someone’s life's story within about 15 minutes; Especially on the first meeting???
Anyways, just wanted to know if this is what the entp collective here experience.
Here is an example of how it works (this person is someone I do care about)
"I am so sad after talking to you. I mirrored your Fi at the end of the day and my poor partially crushed and charred USB connecter for Fi short circuited and my soul dropped somewhere through the floor."
Specifically, Fi freaks me out because it is usually so sad and I don't know how to handle that overwhelming response. My Ti kicks into overdrive and I immediately start spitting out solutions to the poor person who (apparently) just needs comfort.
What part of this sight do I post a lifelong blanket apology to all Fi users who I have apparently obliterated their Fi request for empathy?
