    SO insightful! Thank you for that link, and thank you for your time!

    I'll keep reading on. I know my Fi is stronger than my Fe for sure. One interesting thing is that Fe can actually be encapsulated within Fi to some extent.

    I feel bad letting this thread go on for so long. Most other people's threads are only 2 or 3 pages.

    I don't really know what to say to this, really. Other than that's the way it is.

    You think the Fi+Ne mindset is effective because it allows people to identify with each other, correct?
    Not a problem.

    I noticed that Ne needs other people to acknowledge their point of view (even if they disagree with it), while I could honestly care much, much less about having just any random person do the same. Consequently, I am more selective concerning whom I share my ideas with, due to an innate desire for productivity (Te) involving the proper execution of a broader individual purpose. If people do not bother listening, or with freely exchanging the ideas I'm anticipating, I'll instantly move onto someone else.

    And the purpose I am aiming for in this thread is to see how well I could translate and comprehend various mindsets with my understanding of the Jungian functions. I also wanted to make sure this becomes a learning experience that I, as well as others, can utilize. So I relied on Ni to perceive the shared intention (to be understood) and conflict (why can't someone understand me?) amongst the participants. (Human need #1.) I did find it foreign as to why someone would require so much external validation, but I figured it's simply their deeply ingrained way of processing information and connecting to the world. (Human need # 2.) I contemplated whether I should directly challenge this habit as the others did, though decided against it because that task would require even more effort and time than I am willing to spare. (Re: I like to finish what I started.)

    As for the effectiveness of each mindset, I saw how they were useful in achieving different ends. Fi+Ne is great for figuring out someone's personal dilemmas and emotional state of mind, while Ne+Ti is great for exploring multiple, impersonal theoretical concepts.

    My Ni writes those fresh insights into the 'How To' book, and Te categorizes them by area of effectiveness. It was personally entertaining to see how and why their misapplication occurs.

    Basically, the INTJ BestFit Profile explains my life's mission: "Over time I have built a world-view, like constructing a map of the cosmos, and from this, essentially everything is understandable and anything is possible. All the things Iíve done, have been self-taught by picking up on or asking myself good, clear, penetrating questions to expose and articulate the hidden structures that underlie the experience of living."

    I do this actively and frequently in my waking hours.

    Very interesting. I like your mission to explore and categorize the world we live in. And of course, you must analyze the mind and perceptions before you can be conclusive about anything in the external world. That is probably why you are here, and I hope analyzing me has given you another "piece to the puzzle", so to speak.

    You did your job effectively, and I'm glad if you have helped anyone else learn something from this thread. Please keep doing what you do best

    Yes, I am sure that my need for external validation indicates that one of my strongest functions is Ne. This is why so many people stopped informing me. Ironic, isn't it?

    Maybe I should have searched for information elsewhere, as to not waste people's time. However, because I am F user, I enjoy personal interaction.

    It's much more logical to move on to other people once you realize that others don't understand you. In fact, ever since I started learning about MBTI, this kind have behavior seems much more useful, seeing as some archetypes have communication barriers with others. However, it can be SO rewarding to rework your own communication style to be understood.

    Of course, there are also behavior differences as well. This is where the lines between archetypes become clearly defined. As an INFP, you won't find me following the "mob mentality" any time soon. I'm sure you won't either.

Is it not true that attaining the most moral perspective (i.e., finding a personal worldview that is the most ethical) is an end in itself for an Fi dom?

    I mean, I'm no Fi user, but those things seem to be pretty much in line with the function definition. But if any of those things is not true in an explicit sense (none of this, "oh well we're all influenced by society so in a way we all get our morality externally"- this is true but useless since the Fi-Fe distinction is purely for conceptual clarity) then I could see why that might be offensive. But as you said, you're just reacting to word choice.

    And I don't see how turning the OP off of Fi should be a concern. I'm sure the OP can think for his/her self.
    No, none of this is true at all, and furthermore you're a horrible person with a clear and deep-seated hatred for INFPs.
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?

    I made my point in my first post in here. There is a clear bias in his views of Fi, and I explained how I came to that conclusion (and why his biased view is not helpful in the context of someone typing themselves). He's the one who will not address that post directly and has tried to make this about inferring emotion that isn't there or about how he hates other types also. I take this to mean I am right, or else he would address the actual issue.

    And no, he has lumped all INFPs together in his posts in here (see above), which is why I felt compelled to speak out.
    I think perhaps you could benefit from a little Ni use here.

    You've used Ne to find a clear pattern of negative descriptions of Fi on my part, but you don't bother to put that into a broader context by asking: "Why does a pattern of sharp criticism of Fi indicate specific bias against Fi (as opposed to other functions)?"

    Have you ever heard me talk about ESTJs? Ironically, the type I dislike most is your exact opposite. I don't think half of them have gotten the memo that they're not your parents.

    You're suggesting that I treat Fi differently from the way I treat other functions/types. In actuality, I'm sharply critical of virtually every function and type, and most people.

    Wouldn't establishing such a pattern require more context as to determine how the way I treat Fi relates to the way I treat other functions and types?

    Your suggestion that how I feel about other functions is irrelevant displays a clear lack of Ni in a situation where it's pretty important. Ne is so excited about its pattern and showing it to others that you haven't bothered to ask yourself why this pattern is even significant (which it's not when you have context about my broader posting patterns.)
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?

    As for my top three preferences, I can't use them actively at the same time because there will be too much conflict. They work better as a tag-team.
    I know someone who has high Fi and high Ti. He's an INTP, and he's extremely ethical.

    There's really not much to gain from criticizing someone for their functions. That's about as inherently prejudiced as racism.

    I can feel other people's pain, too. Well, specifically real people. I love horror movies. I'm a fan. What I don't love is the evening news - that's what gives me emotional pain - real life. I would rather watch bloody horror film than watch a touching drama about someone dying of cancer if I wanted to avoid pain. Reality is what brings on my sympathetic hurt. I also strongly hurt for animals. I honestly don't know if this is Fi or Fe.

    And my ex and I used to be able to communicate...not exactly telepathecally, but I could feel him coming around a corner even if I didn't consciously know he was there. We had a very strong empathetic connection, and it was largely due to the fact that we BOTH had the ability, rather than just one or the other.

    I'm just saying...I don't know that these things would make a person an INFJ. I'm an xNFP and I'm pretty certain he's an ISFP.

    I've actually analyzed every single person and their ideas in this thread. So far, I received the following puzzles:

    - INFJs with strong Fe emphasis
    - More NT vs. NF differences
    - How Fi is mistaken for Fe; specifically in INFPs
    - How Ne works in NPs
    - Why separating oneself from one's perception is a challenging endeavor
    - The ever-imposing human needs and way it affects our decisions
    - The consequences of rejecting someone's human need
    - How to communicate to NTPs and NFPs
    - More on how I could successfully reach out to people when cooperation is required

    Yeah. I don't need a plethora of outside information to gain insights.

    I'm too pragmatic (Te) to participate in a situation that delivers slow and disappointing results, when there's a faster way of getting them right next door.

    In your case, I would recommend the same conclusion for a different reason: saving your social reserves as a strong introvert, gaining quality personal interactions and inviting less moral troubles (Fi) for yourself.

    Conflict is sometimes necessary to help people expand on their thinking. We just need to be vigilant of when to start and where to stop. These boundaries are mainly up to each individual to determine for themselves.

    For someone who is a naturally terrible communicator like myself, it's a long, long procedure with countless failures. I have to keep reminding myself why reworking my communication style is suitable for excelling in my other goals.

    INFPs are considerably too individualistic to go along with the "mob mentality" without prior deliberation. Introverted feeling's flaws result in something else.
