    First learn to accept yourself as you are, then develop your inferior functions.

    I go with the diplomacy suggestion. But I feel pretty strongly that you should not say things just to please her unless you fully intend to back it up. Don't say, especially after she's said it means so much to her, that you are going to her party unless you are going. IMO, considering the hassle it's going to be to go to her party, you might have offered to spend time with her another way, i.e., "I'm so sorry I can't make it -- I know it means a lot to you and I'm so touched that you want me there. Can we go out to dinner (or whatever) next week, when my schedule will be more flexible, and you can tell me all about it then." And then maybe call her on party day to say you're thinking of her and you know the party will go well and you look forward to your time with her next week.

    i say it very similarly

    T's: Take a step back from the decision, look at it from a distance, and decide by deductively/inductively choosing the most logical answer

    F's: Place themselves into the decision and make a decision based on personal values and you can fill in the rest.
