I'm an INTx, quite literally on the border of P and J with strong traits going either way.
I'm trying to understand the Fi/Fe and their relationship to emotional attachment to people who I deem as potentially compatible mates.
I know that the INTP's feeling function is Fe and the INTJ's feeling function is Fi.
It seems obvious to me that Fe is not responsible for the avoidance of cognitive dissonance / hypocrisy since my dad, a very strongly P INTP, seems to have no problem holding opportunistic and double-standard viewpoints on issues but yet I do.
However, I don't know which function is responsible for attachment.
Recently, I met an INTP girl and got an intuitive sense that she was very compatible. At that point, for some reason, I immediately became deeply attached to her (note: this was not infatuation).
I've heard the same type of thing about ENFPs, whose dominant feeling function is Fi, so it seems to suggest that that's a Fi characteristic too.
Does anybody have any insight into this that I don't have? Or a really good description of the difference between Fi and Fe?
