Fe has this really weird way of working with how… unsure it is? Like I know what I think and I believe what I think fully… But with matters dealing with more social things, I automatically become stupid. Are my emotional reactions “correct?” Is how this person is treating me okay, or is it normal? It’s only until I receive input from others that I know how to react, and in turn, how to feel.
Like sometimes I don’t think Fi-users quite understand it? I literally cannot decipher my emotions unless I have that Fe input and objective standards. The best I can do is tag my emotions with “positive,” “negative,” and “somewhere in the middle.” I don’t have Fi internal values. I don’t have something constant like that.
When I receive Fe values, everything falls into place. If my emotion falls with Fe standards, I am correct. If my emotion conflicts, I am incorrect. And once I come to this conclusion, I can explore and understand my emotions more fully. I can receive closure and move on.
at dinner i was telling my friends the story about leslie jones’ premiere dress disaster and someone pulled up a picture of the group to look at and one of them was like “wow leslie is really tall, isn’t she” and i LITERALLY said “well kate and i are the same height, just for reference”
i was immediately like “shit….normal people don’t know stuff like that…you’re #exposed”
