I think this was my problem with it. I had written this in another post:
I just see you going in ‘one direction’ with heroism…. making Fe heroism too ‘broad’ and then leaving it out of the other functions. This is not about moralizing other functions nor is it about being personally ‘offended.’ (I’m also not offended that you analyzed my childhood. You can do that with me any time, even if I disagree with a nuance! 🙂 )
I don’t need validation through functions because my hero story is already valid as per its existence in reality. No theory can take that away, nor add to it really. It adds, at best, layers of discussion about it and understanding what I might be missing about other people.
So I’m sorry if my posts came off that way because it’s not what I meant AT ALL. What I’m saying is that something is missing in the approach; if different characters become heroes by incorporating different functions, yet the hero myth itself is categorized as Fe. This is not about validation, offendedness, etc; it’s just about what appears to me as an unrealistic, perhaps one-sided way of discussing the meaning of (general) heroic trajectory. And, what it means to be a hero.
For a Fe character to be a “hero,” they have to incorporate Ti, Pe and/or Pi. So it’s not in Fe itself that heroism is native. Or , that is how it appears to me, anyway.
