    Do you have an idea of how the functions might have participated in the process of making that list? I'm wondering because I think for me it's like my Fi resists having its values being translated into terms my Ti can understand and articulate. It is almost as if it feels that its values only make sense in their Fi form and that translating them into Ti terms (ie. words -- which can be picked apart with logic) will only result in their being rejected (since I'm Ti dominant).
    Also, it might be evident already, but I'm still shaky about seeing Fi as a judging, value-having function. I guess I can't see a scenario in which it is better suited than Ti. I think maybe for me Fi works on such an unconscious level and is so strange to my Ti, that I don't even recognize when it is being effectively used. Any examples?

    To be honest I don't identify with the Fi descriptions at all.
    It's probably my weakest way of thinking if I could even identify it.

    Fi is my foundation. Fe is incorporated into it. Ti analyses both so I can move forward properly.

    My Fi has always been stronger than my Ti, but my Ti is pretty strong and also my third function (must be why I can indentify with ENTPs a lot, in some aspects).

    In matters of justice VS mercy I often have trouble deciding.

    I find INTPs to be some of the most genuine people I've met. I don't think the functions really conflict because nothing Ti does seems to break Fi values. INTPs sometimes logic me out, and I probably feeling them out, but deeper level conflicts seem rare.

    Also I don't think anyone relates exactly to Fi descriptions .

    I think I'm Ti third function too. But not positive.
