    2)do you think art is about expressing when artists is experiencing inside?

    Errr......
    1) I've learned to relate to other's problems during discussions by thinking about my own experiences and emotions, but it feels awkward, self-centered, and clunky to me. Saying, "I understand," and not elaborating about why can be worse because it can come off as cold or creepy, though, plus in order to bond with other people we must share a bit of ourselves. I know I have a hard time navigating the balance of this. I will either just say I understand and sit quietly and listen (and feel deeply) and then offer possible solutions, or I'll end up relating my own experiences and (at least to me) it seems like I'm talking about myself too much when the conversation is about someone else's experience or issue.
    So, I do not think I have a good grasp of Fi.

    2) Well, yes. Unless you're just copying as an exercise, art has to come from within. Even choosing what to draw/paint/sculpt has to come from somewhere within no matter what MBTI you are. Where from within varies by type and individual.

    1. I thought INFJs were not so great at Fi, at least according to MBTI? Fi concerns personal feelings or tastes. I've struggled with both considerably. I have trouble knowing what I'm feeling and determining what I prefer. My Fi is weak.

    2. Usually yes, but I cannot know what they were feeling when they made the piece of art. All I know is how I feel when interacting with it, so my experience of the art is a reflection of what I'm experiencing inside more than anything else.

    For your first question I have no idea , I'm a bit confused. All I know is I am an at will introvert/ extrovert depending the person.communication happens easily with some peeps. And it just blocks with others. And about art, art for me.is always a self reflection, my mood, my mental state, my healing can be done through art. Art has been a life saver for me, particularly music .

    1) I definitely have feelings (a lot of them!) but a lot of the time I don't really recognise/identify them properly until I'm literally falling apart or something - I'm within INFJ rather strange because I'm also an enneagram 7 and often don't even recognise that I'm not doing ok (I'll be laughing and smiling, then just completely fall apart. It's confusing for me too.). So defs have feelings, but most of the time don't pay much attention to them (have to work on that!).
    2) Oh, definitely! I'm really into writing - possibly partly because you can write with your emotions without actually having to put them into words (as in, 'I'm feeling sad', not as in literally without words.) I find that writing/art lets me kind of recognise my own emotions after I finish? Once I step away from it and come back, I can identify what I was feeling in hindsight. Lol makes no sense!

    1. Fi must be expressed outside in order for there to be order within just as in contrast dom Fi types must find a way to express Fe in order to be fully morally correct. So how do I do that? I either go over board as people love to express and drag me down with or I give myself internal structure according to my spirituality and the over all needs and given birth rights of humans as a whole.

    2. Art expresses what is happening within a person but must be communicated outside of them. Therefore compassion and feeling must be balanced inside and outside. Just as art must be expressed within and to the viewer. The objective for all types is to find balance. In which way I won’t say because it’s specific to each person what that purpose or need is.

    In other words love must have boundaries just as it must abound.

    I find these two questions have one answer.
    Fi is getting expressed through arts.
    I see art as expressing in the outside world introverted feelings
