    A generalization:
    ISFJ's are experimental health nuts.

    "lets see what this pill does to me!"
    "I wonder how I can boost my metabolic rate and simultaneously decrease my resting heartrate."

    Your measure is that the external consistency is more important. To me, the inner consistency is more important.

    Interesting difference, eh?
    It is! I wonder if this is the chief difference between Fe and Fi?

    Incidentally, I can be a massive hypochondriac. I'm very suspect about taking any kind of medicine without first knowing what all the side effects could potentially be

    This sounds exactly like my ISFP. Actually, I think she has said the first one, verbatim, on more than one occasion... I feel like SPs are more likely to be all "My body is my experiment!" than SJs.

    I'm certainly nothing close to a healthnut and I'm afraid of pills. You did say it was a generalization, I'm aware. I just don't know where it's coming from? That weird Si body connection thing? It translates into hypochondria for me, like tinker. (inferior Ne negative possibilities/catastrophizing, maybe?)


    Also, I know I'm late to the thread hugfest, but 's all around anyways.

    Yeah that's because:

    Fe = lying

    Fi= Selfishness
    'One of (Lucas) Cranach's masterpieces, discussed by (Joseph) Koerner, is in it's self-referentiality the perfect expression of left-hemisphere emptiness and a precursor of post-modernism. There is no longer anything to point to beyond, nothing Other, so it points pointlessly to itself.' - Iain McGilChrist

    Lol, my ISFJ definitely falls on the opposite end of the spectrum, too. He doesn't take medicine unless it's REALLY necessary, and still doesn't like it.

    Incidentally my INFJ coworker is the experimental nut (inferior Se?), while my probably-ISFP grandfather was the health nut/guru.
