    I guess that Fe is the INFJ secondary function. When I first read about Fe it made my group interaction personality make a lot more sense to me.

    If I'm thrown into a group of people that I do not know, I have to watch how they all interact before I become part of anything. So I'm usually very quiet at first just observing the social cues. Once I feel comfortable enough with the group dynamics then I jump in. I always saw myself as using Fe as a way to easily get to know people. If I act how I think they want me to act and use Fe to appeal to them then I can try to move beyond that. I don't like to seem too off putting to people at first. Only when I get to know someone rather well I feel like I can drop the more "superficial" side of Fe and be more myself.

    ....though that side of Fe isn't *not* myself either I suppose...

    I look at Fe as trying to connect and relate to others with a lot of attention paid to the overall group environment. An effort to have your effect on the outside environment match your values.

    Fe: Big smile.
    Fi: Earnest gaze.

    It wasn't as complicated as some of the descriptions were making it sound. I like the above description better.

    Here's a thread with lots of discussion on Fi vs Fe for those interested.

    from the forum:

    "Fe is the lava that boils out.
    Fi is the fire inside that started it all.

    Fe sings.
    Fi composes.

    Fe asserts itself.
    Fi just IS.

    Fe is the bird.
    Fi is the song.

    Fe is contagious.
    Fi is seductive.

    Fe feels for others.
    Fi feels for self.

    Fe resounds.
    Fi resonates.

    Fe is the smile that leads to the kiss.
    Fi is the butterfly in your chest that led to the smile.

    Fe makes decisions based on values.
    Fi makes decisions based on PERSONAL values.

    Fe reaches out.
    Fi pulls in."

    phoenity, i dont know if you are istp (an introverted sensorical perceiver=Si) or TiSe but for the moment i will asume that you are an introverted sensorical perceiver:

    istp value loyality dont they?
    loyality as in getting your hands dirty for your friends.
    (dirty means, that you may break your personal values, in favor of relational values)
    such loyality is all about Fe.

    (introverted sensorical peceiver (thinking) = SiTeNiFe)

    you got got into an argument with an enfp about how much you care for people (quote "Lies!"), its a typical misunderstanding. like intp you either defend your weak Fe or hide it (to pretend invulnerability). but in any case, the Fe-caring is something different from what an enfp thinks of when he refers to his own Fi. (sympathy vs empathy)

    such loyality is not to be confused with staying true to an aid that one has sworn (which would be an Fi or Ti interpretation of the word). like "just because this company became corrupt and morally bankrupt, doesnt mean i cant continue to work for this company in an upright honest and moral way, i have sworn to the ideals of the company, after all"

    thats not to say, that xiTe and xiFe people dont value a steadyness in their course of action (as sworn once), but its more a strategical value (at least in introverted people) as it can seem very twisted to others, as it is situational. like when you claim "if this company doest stop its corrupt ways, i will retire in protest" and you will feel like you have to actually do this, even if it kills you.

    i collect my notes in my blog
