lol, and no, that's not completely off base at all. for me it's less "data"-like. it's a little more abstract (that symbol thing). maybe an ESFP, led by Se would have Fi that was more like that though?
but yeah, constantly gathering information to form an ethical database or framework is right on. i understand that Ti is much like this too, but instead of being ethically based it's more...idea based? (i don't like that because i feel like Fi is "ideas" kind of too.) information/practical systems based? i dunno, i'll need a Ti user to step in here. Lyedecker, you seem like you could probably shed some light on that.
yes. this is also a metaphor for my life.Would you say you're the type of person whom can easily be reading, say, a wikipedia article, then click a link to another article, and before you know it you've got 25 tabs to seemingly unrelated articles open in your browser and can hardly remember how you went from the reading about Sunflowers to reading about Solar Flares?
yeah, i totally buy the idea that people's functions can kind of develop strength independently. like since you grew up in a feeling-heavy environment, or whatever other reasons, Fe developed more than Si even possibly. seems plausible.I'm playing with the idea that I use Fe in an inferior role. I think it really started to develop in my late teens and continually into my twenties.
