@teatime Ohhhhh, of course! *mind blown*

I have been treating Fi through the lens of Fe, when I think that their affiliations are the cause of their character, rather than the other way around. There seems to be a sort of chicken-and-egg problem with Fe and Fi. Fe is more inclined to say the behaviors birth the character, while Fi might side with character birthing the behaviors. I can certainly imagine how this might cause tensions in descriptions, as describing Fi through Fe’s angle can appear wrong in a fundamental way (not to mention belittling, and missing the point).

For Ji, the metabolic processing is axiomatic rather than causal. So [ I am ] always comes before [ I do ], and the latter stems from the former. I’m rather familiar with this approach in my own J axis, but hadn’t quite conceptualized it in the opposite axis.

It seems like, when we boil it down, all functions have a deep epistemological prejudice at core; one that is as valid as its counterpart in the domain of metaphysics/philosophy. I’ve come to grasp this epistemic leaning in Ti, Fe, Ni and other functions… but perhaps I’m approaching Fi now. Looking forward to your other thoughts Tea. 🙂

– Peterson does something similar with the lobsters.

We’re all long lost lobster-cousins.
