I tried to do this last night and realized I still don't really understand the functions so I just ended up browsing youtube listening to awesome music for a while.

Okay I am going to try... ANIMATED MOVIE STYLE. Ok to begin with, if Se is what I think it is, then this is how I experience it. :D
[YOUTUBE="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eownqeGOqcE"]Se - Oh de lally (from Robin Hood)[/YOUTUBE]


Not necessarily how I experience Fi, but as soon as I learned about Fi vs Fe I thought of this song.
[YOUTUBE="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5A_Rl8aQxII"]Fi - Reflection (from Mulan)[/YOUTUBE]


This one I'm not sure of... but I think it's Ni, the way I understand it at least.
[YOUTUBE="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=44FH8SHoD00"]Ni - Something's up with Jack (from Nightmare before Christmas)[/YOUTUBE]

Not sure.
[YOUTUBE="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MVovQfq7U0w"]Ne - Belle (from Beauty and the Beast)[/YOUTUBE]


[YOUTUBE="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7v7m1XSrj6Q"]Si - Steady as the Beating Drum (Pocahontas)[/YOUTUBE]


And of course quite possibly the best song EVARRRRR...
[YOUTUBE="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vi4o2cG_SsI"]Te - Poor Unfortunate Souls (Little Mermaid)[/YOUTUBE]


I couldn't think of one for Ti. :cry:

I have no idea if any of these make sense, because I'm still developing an understanding of the functions.

What do you think?



edit: I forgot Fe too! I fail...

Hmmm... I just watched the Nightmare Before Christmas one all the way through and now I'm not sure if I would call it any one function (at least the ending). A couple of the lines jumped out at me as Ni though.

A secret's waiting to be cracked
These dolls and toys confuse so
Confound it all I love it though
Simple objects nothing more
But something's hidden through a door
Though I do not have the key
Something's here I can not see
What does it mean?

For me, this reminds me of how Ti sees love. It doesn't have the language to describe it, so it must find something else beautiful in Ti's terms and show it to the person. In the sharing, is the expression.

Meet me in outer space
I will hold you close
If you're afraid of heights
I need you to see this place
It might be the only way
That I can show you how
It feels to be inside of you

I love this, and it's SO true. Back when we had no money my husband would make or draw things for me for gift-giving occasions. One of my favorites was something he drew that used aspects of the four elements as analogies for love.

This is the essence of Fi to me. And, very like Fi, I can't quite explain why. It's not because I think Fi users are drug addicts or suicidal (I'm not).

Because these song threads are way cool :D

Ti
[youtube=DgBgnoEY4iM]Daft Punk - Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger[/youtube]

This song is why I still think I'm an NT :p

I could see this as Ti or Te...

Not sure.
[YOUTUBE="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MVovQfq7U0w"]Ne - Belle (from Beauty and the Beast)[/YOUTUBE]

Totally :nice:

This one's also gotta be Ne :D


Ti is a tricky one, but this one sort of sounds like it....
The lyrics themselves are pretty random though :laugh:

Fe :laugh: (sort of)

Si (at least kind of what it's like in the inferior)


What Ni sounds like to me:


Still can't find a song for Te.... this one is good but already been listed Seven Nation Army

What Fi sometimes looks like to me ;)


Se :tongue:



(anyone who knows a lot of music help me out here....)

Whatever function I use, this song is perfect for it/them.
