    So since the "Liking others" thread turned into a big mushy lovefest, I thought I'd bring balance to the force by posting a negative thread.

    What are some of the negative sides (either real or perceived) of the functions?

    Fi: Selfish, moody, contradictory, unpredictable, emo, weird, irrational....

    Se: Hedonistic, shallow, inconsiderate, shortsighted, primitive

    Ni: Crazy, irrational, paranoid, cold...

    Te: Judgemental, uncaring, cold, power hungry...

    Fe: Manipulative, moody, irrational, fake, shallow...

    Si: Old fashioned, dull, pedantic...

    Ne: Crazy, silly, weird, paranoid...

    Ti: Pendantic, nitpicky, nerdy, uncaring....

    HAhah how enthusiastic xD I actually loved the lovefest haha. I think its nice to talk about nice things.

    This seems realistic, but the thing that pops up in my head is why this 'mood' of the process or whatever it is called, arouse in the first place. :p *can't help it xD*

    My Ni likes to sit upon top of Si and Se and use them as a sofa/futon combo. :fish:

    We have Fe and Se, which are described as shallow, and Ni and Ti which are described as cold and uncaring.

    Does anyone wonder how we're considered deep, compassionate individuals with that logic?

    Well, this list is the "unhealthy" functions list, what's the opposite of those qualities?
