    Agreed.

    MBTI does not get the final word on these things...but I do see correlations.

    Nobody seems to recognize this. Norms are norms.
    Actually, 1 in 4 American adults still do believe this. (I personally thank the magic of standardized testing in our public school system.)

    But yeah, it sorta just amazes me that people aren't a little more aware of how they sound when they talk about Fe. But I guess that's Pe or Te for you.

    I notice a lot of issues with extremely narrow perspectives of cognitive functions. The nature of Fe is simply to evaluate interpersonal matters based on values from an objective viewpoint (As relates to the outside world rather than personal desires). This could be adhering to social norms for the better of society(usually when paired with Si), trying to change society for the better (as with Ni), or absolutely hating society and everything about it(lower in the functional stack). The key theme is society and interpersonal values as opposed to personal values that are not concerned with others.

    Would someone who is not concerned with social norms bother with changing them?
