    Default Balancing an overbearing Ne out with Fi

    Any concrete suggestions on how that works? I get the theory behind it, but I'd be interested in hearing from people who have actually done this.

    well i notice that ENFPs that have the most balanced Ne and Fi have a very well developed Te. The way i like to think of the tertiary function is like a translator between two scholars that speak different languages, Ne and Fi. the better Te translates the better Ne and Fi work together...

    That's a cool image.

    To give my fair share of things: Balancing out anyone by force is not possible.

    I prefer to avoid being concerned about certain things like "lack of Fi"... why bother worrying about silly things like that when there's a WORLD to explore!

    and Xenu just isn't my man (how can anyone take something seriously that reminds you so incredibly namewise of Xena?!? )

    and Lucy Lawless plays the Madam Dominatrix in Eurotrip!

    really, I think that Xena could be quite the dom if the opportunity presented itself

    You really should start to talk more german friendly. I like to talk in riddles myself, but I cant defend myself against american slang .

    Best role of Lucy Lawless was in Battlestar though. I still do not understand why they do put hot woman and straight Generals in Sciene-Fiction Shows; it totally corrupted my youth

    sorry- I was refering to sado-masochism there, saying that Lucy Lawless with a whip could be rather formidable!

    and are you sure that they didn't do it in order to corrupt your youth? I grew up watching television programs about murders and other crimes... my parents had a fondness for law and order!
