There is usually a huge leap of faith that cannot be traced back to the Ti framework directly when it comes to most of their actual stances on anything. I consider them to be Fe doms by proxy.
    Fe has its own brand of "logic"... I would consider it social logic more than anything else though. It's somewhat like Te but with considering people dynamics, cause and effect.

    But the thing is people dynamics are irrelevant sometimes and that is where Fe can get hung up.

    Not a day goes by where I don't ask myself, "sinny, wat r u doin?".

    I don't know, me. I just don't know.

    Sometimes I wonder if the point is not to know. But even that, I don't know for sure.

    ISTJ #1 gets jealous sometimes because he thinks I spend more time with ISTJ #2 than with him. ISTJ #2 feels left out all the time because they don't get to see me and ISTJ #1 as often anymore due to school and living in a different city. I think they both just need to find some chill and relax.

    Default Do Not Fear Your True Power

    “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us...You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us." ~Marianne Williams

    $ 700 million spent to only make the situation worse, typical.

    us-support-of-gay-rights-in-africa-may-have-done-more-harm-than-good

    America’s money and public diplomacy have opened conversations and opportunities in societies where the subject was taboo just a few years ago. But they have also made gay men and lesbians more visible — and more vulnerable to harassment and violence, people on both sides of the gay rights issue contend. The American campaign has stirred misgivings among many African activists, who say they must rely on the West’s support despite often disagreeing with its strategies.

    In Nigeria, Africa’s most populous nation, the final passage of the 2014 law against homosexuality — which makes same-sex relationships punishable by 14 years in prison and makes it a crime to organize or participate in any type of gay meeting — is widely regarded by both supporters and opponents of gay rights as a reaction to American pressure on Nigeria and other African nations to embrace gay rights.

    “The Nigerian law was blowback,” said Chidi Odinkalu, chairman of Nigeria’s National Human Rights Commission and the senior legal officer for the Africa Program of the Open Society Justice Initiative, which supports gay rights on the continent. “You now have situations of gay men being molested on the streets or taunted. That was all avoidable.”

    “I’ve said to U.S. diplomats privately as well — the risk is causing more harm than good,” Mr. Odinkalu added. “You don’t want an infusion of good will to actually do harm to the community that you think you’re protecting.”

    Anti-gay sentiments are widespread across Africa. Same-sex relations remain illegal in most nations, the legacy of colonial laws that had been largely forgotten until the West’s push to repeal them in recent years.

    Fierce opposition has come from African governments and private organizations, which accuse the United States of cultural imperialism. Pressing gay rights on an unwilling continent, they say, is the latest attempt by Western nations to impose their values on Africa.
    Cultural imperialism..... classic. But who cares if the policy is ineffective or if it makes life worse for those they are trying to help or if it is a bad way to spend money or if it disrespects other nations....
