Me, internally: Nailed it. *high fives myself*
Extroverted Feeling (Fe): Ty Lee’s primary interests are pleasing and impressing others. She is highly attuned to the emotions of her friends, and very open in acknowledging her own. She craves approval from others. She’s adroit at maneuvering social situations, making friends quickly wherever she goes. She dispenses advice to Azula about how to impress boys - “Just look at hime and smile a lot and laugh at everything he says even if it’s not funny.” This is in fact a good policy in charming anyone, and Ty Lee employs it frequently. She is full of compliments for all she sees, and serves as a mediator in her circle of friends. She is quite sentimental and dislikes cruelty. She maintains a cheerful and upbeat attitude in order to gloss over unpleasant emotions and keep the atmosphere positive. She’s quite flirtatious and sociable, enjoying interacting with and charming new acquaintances. Ty Lee’s dominant Fe makes her a little too pliable - she wants so badly to please others that she’s afraid to stand up for herself.
Introverted Intuition (Ni): Ty Lee has a good sense about people; she intuits their true feelings with relative ease, often based on very little external evidence. She believes in auras, and talks about how the symbolic universe dictates her actions. She is Azula’s right hand woman and easily understands her friend’s long term goals and carefully laid out plans; they make a particularly good team for this reason. Even as children, we see Ty Lee participating in a scheme of Azula’s to set up Zuko and Mai. She enjoys strategizing with Azula and laying out plans for the future. Her own future interests her very much; when she felt it was hopeless living at home with her identical sisters, she ran away to form a new identity. She has a sense of negative energy around her, and is quick to make analogies for everything she sees. “They’re more like…bundles? Bunches?” Her Ni isn’t quite as fast as her Fe - she uses Fe as easily as breathing - so she doesn’t see patterns as easily as an Ni dom might.
Extroverted Sensing (Se): She craves action, excitement, and things of physical beauty. Ty Lee is very quick to act, and is a great fighter because of her chi-blocking abilities. She loves things that are pretty and luxuriant. She has a good sense of her environment; she is quick to notice a pretty face, a nice bit of decorating, or elegant clothes. However, although she’s quick to act, Ty Lee is not naturally impulsive. She doesn’t make most of her decisions in the heat of the moment - she ponders the implications carefully, usually thinking about what impact they’ll have on her future. She prefers to combine her perception of her environment with her ability to anticipate and strategize. Occasionally she makes snap decisions, like betraying Azula to save Mai’s life.
Introverted Thinking (Ti): Ty Lee is not usually very logical. She’s more interested in preserving peoples’ feelings, and since she’s quite young her inferior function isn’t well developed. She has some analytical ability - she certainly recognizes Azula’s veiled threats and makes the calm, rational decision to help her, even though she doesn’t particularly want to. She shows capacity for self-analysis when she admits why she ran away from home, and even gives some logical insight into her friends’ dilemmas. Her Ti seems to show up best in distressing situations around people she’s comfortable with - the episode she uses it in the most is The Beach.

#i could write sonnets to that belly <- I challenge you to write that sonnet about Link's belly :D
Shall I compare thee to a Georgia peach? Thou art more supple and more delicate. Rough hands do stroke to cause delighted screech And bearded jaw scratch keen trails upon it. So long as Rhett can breathe, or eyes can see, So long lives this, and this gives life to thee.
