    I've wondered and decided to ask (again).. what do you know about Fe?
    INFJ's second function, the one thing we're quite proud of, the possible thing behind all those love, hugs, and all the affection.

    Fe! XD :mhula:

    I considered Fe to be related to affection and nurturing. Related to emotional 'feelings'. The part that drives sympathy (and further, altruism). The part that take cares and concerned about others. The most social, in the general way and 'genuine' way, function.

    Done well, it's affectionate, compassionate, understanding in the emotion sense. Supportive.
    Done ugly, it's doormatish, confusing, and whiny.
    Done wrong, it's manipulative, selfish, and bully-like.

    how about everyone? Do you have anything related to Fe? or its connection to other functions?

    Formal, informal; facts, opinions, experiences anything related~

    I experience Fe as a need for belonging, a joy in teamwork (even if I don't say very much), generosity, and a sense of compassion for people I see who are experiencing problems in the here and now. I express it most often by answering people's questions :D.

    It's been said that I have a lot of Fe.

    I work to make everyone feel included, and I reach out to people because I just flat out like contact. It's probably my most extroverated function, and it's what people see from me most.

    Fe is a cognitive function that judges the value of this versus that based on an externally-sourced contextual hierarchy of values.

    As a cognitive function, Fe is not emotional in nature, though it does evaluate perceived emotion as part of its externally-sourced contextual hierarchy of values.


    cheers,

    yes XD it can definitely be a beautiful thing. you put it nicely <3

    Me too. I can't count times when I'm told that I'm noisy, curious, and talkative (and it made me a little scared....) when in fact I just want to live in peace and snuggle inside (and cry. Nah, just kidding. :p)

    I think I'd heard somewhere (here? Personality Cafe?) That INFJs can be seen as an extrovert due to mostly this.

    I just got an epiphany, in comparison to Fi, and I think it fits your description...

    I kinda think Fi is a bit princess-like.. while Fe is a bit nurse-like...

    It's very easy to make Fi out to look very selfish/childish compared to Fe, and it's a terrible misnomer. Just be careful of that. Not everyone on this planet has bad Fi and good Fe.

    I know I excell and suck at both Fi and Fe sometimes equally depending on the situation. Sorry if that sounds vague.

    What I mean is, depending on the situation, the person and everything else involved, I might respond well or not so well with both Fi and Fe.

    yeah; I think most Introverted function can be easily seen as childish / selfish. In actuality methinks it's kinda reactive / ...'from inside to outer world' than anything else. I've seen a lot of good Fi, in the sense of "know what they want" and yeah, the will to live. I consider myself undeveloped in Fe, too. >_>; /siiigh

    It was never my intention, and I apologizes if it looked so. But you make me ponder if this is personal indeed; in context, I was having a conflict with my friend (an ISFP, Fi user ahoy) which I blame to her responsive childishness and my own ignorance.
