I'll notice sometimes when I'm really digging something like a good song, book, or movie, or work of art, if someone expresses dislike towards that thing, I'll often have the tendency to ask myself, is it okay for me to like this thing? This is especially true if its coming from someone I respect or the opinion of the other appears to be an expert one. Like if a bunch of movie critics give a bad review to a movie I happened to enjoy, I start doubting my own opinion of it. There must be something other people are perceiving in the movie that I'm not.
I'm trying to tie this into information elements and I'm guessing it comes closest to Fi role. Fi deals with like and dislike and Fi in the role position acts as the superego so there's shoulds and oughts on it. In other words, *should* I *like* this? Is it right for me to like this? Just want to know other peoples' take on this.
I'm also sensitive to any comments regarding my own aesthetic tastes. I think is the function that comes closest to matching aestetics and its a weak function for me, but its my hidden agenda so its valued. A hidden agenda hit is almost as bad as a PoLR hit. I feel insecure about whether or not I really have good 'taste' and I'm reluctant to show someone I my music or movie collection for example in the fear that my taste will potentially be ridiculed. Or if someone asks me what I think about a certain work of art. Especially if I just met that person and I have no idea what their own preferences are. I also fear that people will make wrong interferences about my character based on what I have in my collection. I think the fear of character judgement may also stem from Fi role.
