A thread in the relationships + sociology section got my brainstorming. The thread about an INTP and his poor Fe The OP was advised to come to INFJs to walk amongst the apparent masters of Fe. You lovely INFJs I came here for 2 reasons, one of which is a perceived lack of Fe and the other is because people keep "accusing" me of being an INFJ Now here is my brainstorm. I believe the reason people are suspecting I am an INFJ is because I am heartbroken and shaken. I am having an existential crisis. I have always been an elegant speaker and writer and in possession of depth, emotionally and intellectually. In addition, I have always been melancholy and a bit "lonely" But what is happening is something else. This intense sadness has opened the floodgates of my Fe. My Empathy,compassion,sympathy and all around general awareness of other peoples struggles and pain is off the charts compared to the norm. perhaps to the point of being a life changing situation. To me, the INFJ is generally a beautiful, yet sad and lonely soul. being in a perpetual state of sadness could explain why their Fe is usually among the highest of people and sought out by others. I am on to something with this? Is there a link between sadness and Fe??
