    Fe is quite tricky because of the Ti since it can become a self-sacrificing function. It can also make one bitter if the Harmony one has strived for it not respected. It can take many turns if the mind is not stable..

    I have found that once I started working with my Se, the Ti has become less important and more quiet. The self-limiting barriers most of us carry with us are slowly becoming more and more loose. This enable me to be more spontaneous and welcoming. Instead of using Fe as a tool to fix and fixate things, I use it to create openness. There is no need to control outer circumstances to achieve balance. The balance begins within and is expressed effortlessly everywhere. Kind of “coming out of the shell” I guess.

    I no longer feel responsible for maintaining harmony. I am more in tune with myself and this is felt naturally by everyone I meet. People are at ease as I meet them, not that I try to do this but simply because I reflect the calmness I experience within. People are telling me all the time how peaceful and joyful they perceive me.

    True, human relationships have that inherent complexity irrespective of Fe or Fi dynamics. And alienated forms of political economy do not help matters.

    I don’t know. Fe is kind of magical. Feel like it’s the most ‘human’ of functions

    I don’t have much of it—it just sort of lurks in the background

    There is an element of it that says bend or break rules for the sake of compassion knowing it’s against what you really believe in. But again, that’s what it means to be human

    It’s what brings the idealist out in me

    Honestly, I rarely use it unless someone or something has touched it. Or it’s a way to pop charisma into an otherwise dry or analytical context

    When on the receiving end, though

    It’s the most amazing, bubbly, warm and loving feeling

    Like a million hugs in a jacuzzi

    I've heard people say that they have received the most amazing Fe from INTPs - because it's your inferior, it can come straight from the unconscious heart. It may not be refined, but it can be absolutely warm and completely authentic.

    Yeah, it’s like a pure Fe bomb

    So awesome when it happens—straight tremors

    I delivered an Fe bomb once to my boss as I was leaving a company. I remembered he told a story about hiking as a Boy Scout, and he had a big copy of Anna Karina in his backpack

    So I bought Anna Karina and told him why I did and said I got the paperback version because I didn’t want it to weigh him down

    He melted. It’s just like pure I was in your shoes, man

    Ironically enough, I shared that Fe bomb story (just something that happened during my day) with an INFJ I was pursuing and ended up dating

    She paused to absorb it, and then it hit her so hard she gasped, reached, grabbed and squeezed my hand. We made out for the first time

    Fucking Fe electric

    Like oh my god I FELT that

    Out of curiosity, what was the type of the principal who handed down those illegal orders...

    Hmm, I would say:

    ESTP

    Definitely an extrovert, definitely sensor, and had that vibe of an incompetent know-nothing (for those that saw through him) who tried to bluff, bluster and charisma his way through life, a bit like Donald Trump.
