    Default TJ's using Fe

    Oh man, what a sight to behold. It is truly a beautiful thing to see. *sigh*

    That is all I wanted to say.

    Tentative typing: ISFJ 6w5 or 9w1 (Sp/S[?]).

    I think someone is confused. TJs tend to only turn to Fe to harass, annoy, or trick/trap others. Like an ISTJ might lecture you about being tacky and improper in the middle of an argument or nervous breakdown, but in a state of calm centeredness they'd find Fe oppressive coming from others, and may even shut down into a defensive Fi mode in the face of being overwhelmed by it, but usually will try to logically deconstruct it. Or if they do agree its for pragmatic reasons. An IxTJ may appear to use Fe to try to "look classy" but its for their own Fi motive of being perceived as made of win, not because they actually care about social norms in and of themselves.

    A TJ might let out their Fi gooey center, at which point they may look and/or sound like an FP in the depths of empathetic feeling. Because it will be under rare circumstances, come across as almost awkwardly authentic, and may involve statements like "I can relate to that feeling. I wouldnt want to feel that way. Ive gone through something similar" and sometimes even make statements that sound a great deal like IxFP adolescent poetry. Its very endearing.

    Dr Phil is a good example of TJ who uses Fe, I think.

    If they use it at all, I don't think TJ types use much Fe. Even if they did, it wouldn't be very effective - sort of what Marm said. So, if people think an IxTJ is using Fe, they are probably mistaken.

    Yes, when it is important to us, we can simulate Fe using a combination of our other functions, but it isn't genuine Fe at all. We simply learn the patterns of what others expect, how A generally leads to B interpersonally, and employ them when needed to get what we want.

    I for one have very little patience with Fe-driven behavior, and find Te will get me to the same result 90% of the time.
    I've been called a criminal, a terrorist, and a threat to the known universe. But everything you were told is a lie. The truth is, they've taken our freedom, our home, and our future. The time has come for all humanity to take a stand...

    I think that yes. He is an ESTJ, but very warm, sociable and cheerful.
