As an NeFi I-I- you are an Explorer with an Articulation development, meaning there are two complementary aspects that most define your psyche: one of a passionate creative, and the other of a fervent achiever. Neither of these aspects can be omitted from your psyche without strong detriment to your vitality, purpose and sense of thriving. You are both insatiably curious and also very ambitious, craving personal expansion through your firsthand exposure of new experiences and interests. While others tend to hold themselves back from the world, you rarely flinch from it and instead have a talent for grasping opportunities right as they manifest themselves. You are a go-getter, a productive powerhouse and it’s imperative to you that your life has both a fresh creative flow as well as achievement of goals along the way.
As a creative, you’re known for experimenting in various artistic areas and have a reputation as a connoisseur. Your creative exploration will guide you into silly and playful behaviors. You’ll make use of parodies and puns to paint memes and caricatures of things. Your mind will often fly away into a daydream, engaging in free-floating brainstorms that can traverse many hodgepodge topics – such as a day in the life of a wallet, the atomic weight of love, or antimatter galaxies with anti-humans – within a few seconds. However, although you dabble in many fields, you’re far from frivolous in your pursuits. You may have a wide assortment of interests that you weave in and out of, but you’re also capable of sticking to one thing long enough to see it followed through to the end. At each moment you know just what you want, and you go after it headlong. You have a high-functioning, executive mind and can manage people and situations well when called upon. You are rational, logistical, orderly and business-minded. You are efficient at handling technical problems and you thrive on getting things done. You are also a pragmatic defender of what you value, whether through financial support or advocacy. Yet your mind is constantly geared towards dynamic, creative expression and your qualities as a “doer” are most gratifying when they can help you embody an artistic expression through your life as a totality. There’s a desire in you not only to explore but to also make an impact, to create a measurable stir with your art-forms and change the world in some meaningful way.
However, having this twofold energetic drive also comes with many drawbacks and blindsides. You’re often in too much of a mental or physical hurry to slow down and are prone to becoming impatient when life or other people are not moving fast enough. Questions may crop up related to what the purpose of living is and whether you feel you are living in true alignment to that higher purpose within you. But you may not always allow yourself to sink into these questions long enough to feel their full weight. If not careful, you can quickly slip into mania, where you don’t know how to stop yourself and need to keep moving and producing at all costs. You may develop a reputation for being overwhelming or hard to keep up with. Your mind is “a lot” to handle, and it’s challenging to moderate your frantic stream of ideas in all situations. Since your mind is very decompressed it often comes out filter-less, as a direct mental relay. This can make you extremely honest, and perhaps too honest, with your inner world and experiences. Your speech can come out haphazardly when you bounce around thoughts faster than you can revise them. Yet as a whole you make up for these difficulties with your proliferation and rapid prototyping. When ever something doesn’t come out perfectly, you simply try again and try better, thus every attempt still serves your higher purpose of attaining a truer form of self-expression.
Finally, and perhaps most importantly, your pragmatic energy will be directed towards building your own permanent “home.” You enjoy the thought of being a provider, and have a hidden yearning to personally craft the ideal family and place where you know that you belong. This desire may be imagined as a cozy cottage in the meadows, a family estate on the outskirts of town, or a place where you’ve created your own haven from an eclectic assortment of your favorite things. Behind all your hard work and labor, there exists this desire to build up resources in order to secure that ideal life. And you may feel it is only a matter of time before that place manifests in your life, as you have an unshakeable patience and endurance towards attaining that which you most cherish.
Seelie > Unseelie:
As for your emotional disposition, if you are seelie your demeanor will appear naturally vulnerable, gentle and disarming. People may describe you as sensitive, compassionate, and attuned to your femininity. You may radiate out emotions through a whispery voice, a bashfulness of the body and giddy giggles. And although this may provoke a level of criticism from tough-skinned people who don’t understand you, your ability to be open-hearted to life and humanity remains uncompromised. Your attitude remains seelie so long as it is permeable to others, whether voluntarily or not. Thus, the possession of a seelie attitude will cause you to be deeply affected by life in both positive and negative ways, giving rise to acute highs and lows. The capacity to feel radiant joy comes at the cost of also feeling intense sorrows, making you more highly attuned to pain. This same experience of pain will lead to a heightened sense of empathy both for humans and other animal species. In some cases, an affinity develops for nature and the divinity within each living being. This can lead to a nurturing impulse towards plant and animal life.
Unseelie > Seelie:
As for your emotional disposition, if you are unseelie you are far from a sentimentalist and have a more blunt and assertive attitude. You’re not afraid to make critical opinions of others, and to call out lies and hypocrisies where you see them. This can give you an “abrasive” attitude and others may experience you as being touchy and haughty. And while some may see your words as harsh, you ultimately seek fairness and justice which requires forthrightness. You value not beating around the bush, and hearts that express what they truly feel.Yet, your Fi’s sensitivity is never truly gone. Although you prefer to stand your own intellectual ground, your high Fi values will manifest in your personal approaches to life. Rather than approaching matters from a hands-off third person view, it matters in a powerful way that you have a subjective ethical alignment with the topic at hand. You may protest against certain personalities due to a personal disgust felt against them, or may reject hypotheses that are in violation of some essential living ethic. And in this way, you still reveal your Fi’s ethical priority.
