  • Type: FiSe
  • Development: ll--
  • Attitude: Unseelie

To continue your castle metaphor, could we understand unseelie (heart unopened) Fi archetypally as a kind of castle with very high walls? Examples of this in myth may be the princess in the tower, Repunzel locked away by her wicked witch mother, which could represent the heart of Fi locked away by a kind of jealous protectiveness. Unseelie Fi can certainly be cold, but maybe a more morally neutral way of understanding it could be that unseelie Fi is distant, maybe a bit suspicious of the motives of others or protective of oneself. If seelie Fi at one end can be totally and completely vulnerable, open, and permeable, I think we can suppose that unseelie Fi could be a lofty floating castle of ideals that has realized it needs some self-protection. That can come across as haughty or cold, even mean and dismissive, but I don’t think it’s inherently negative in any way. I am certainly biased, however 😛
