- Type: SeFi
- Development: lll-
- Attitude: Unseelie
I don’t think it’s necessary to ethicize Te, nor do I have any problem with the idea that some people have a ‘live and let live’ philosophy. Nor do I see the need to change any of the definitions. Everything you said in your last post makes perfect sense to me, and I understand how morality and a ‘need to improve’ is connected to J functions and specifically F.
The problem I’m having is that I see the stories of complex characters, who have developed many functions or have very human trajectories, being cast as examples of “Fe myths” – regardless of what their type actually is. I see 1-dimensional characters who have never put themselves through the grind in any way and have no additional functional or personal complexity, being cast as “Se myths.” And I can’t help but wonder even how many SeXi I— would see themselves reflected in such characters; whereas I know from experience that many different types see themselves reflected in characters whose stories you’ve categorized as Fe.
I wonder how accurate, realistic, or useful this assessment is, and whether the fundamental basis of “Hero by trial through fire = Fe” is correct. And if so, whether it’s correct to say that other types who see themselves in it, are not resonating with something ‘natural’ to them. I don’t want to overload you anymore, so I will sit with this for a while and see what comes. 🙂
