    Default Do I use Fe or Fi?

    I'm having trouble knowing which I use..

    Why I think I use Fe:

    -My mood is rather easily affected by people I'm close to

    -I use common courtesy words like "thanks" and "sorry" because I want people to view me as considerate (although I probably am not)

    -In front of people, I can hardly hold back my true feelings at all. Even when I try to control it, my emotions show on my face.

    Why I think I use Fi:

    -I'm really bad at making people feel good. I have this ability to make them feel really awkward. When people talk to me about their problems I get really awkward and try to hug or pat them or try to relate to them from my own experience. I guess I also offer ways to see their situation from different perspectives (Is this my Ne?).

    -I don't really consider other people's emotions when I'm making a decision, I usually only consider how it would affect me. It's probably selfish.

    To be honest, I don't understand Fi a lot. Could someone please describe Fi too?

    Thanks for reading.

    But you're definitely a feeler?

    I'll come back in the morning, hopefully to a few more posts to work with.

    Definitely. I know I'm not a thinker.

    Your style and avatar seem kind of... INTP. I'll sleep on it.

    I am aware that my perception of Fe and Fi may be skewed.

    Could you please enlighten me of how Fe and Fi are, then?

    I would agree that those aren't good indicators.

    Have you taken a test?

    I'm getting an INTJ vibe from you.
