I was wondering, do you sometimes find Fi to be creepy? It seems, going outside of Jung, that Fi is most related to human relationships in socionics. But sometimes it feels like Fi can also act purely as a judgmental element of motivation or demotivation towards another human being.
It's that sense of like or dislike, given to Fi, that seems to make me feel creeped out at times. That feeling of knowing that your interaction with someone will eventually amount to them deciding whether to estrange you or not. It's an implicit test, one the Fi person might not even really be aware of when they do it, and it's so creepy to know that my value as a human being is constantly being evaluated in reference to them - to know that the acceptance within a set of standards will take primary focus over that of enjoying little or no standard and most often lead to preclusion of the latter.
And to motivate or demotivate, it requires that one essentially have a propensity to feel connected to another in a way that requires trust...some kind of trust...emotional trust...monetary trust...intellectual trust...friendship trust...something. Without a person feeling some kind of trust, it's impossible to be affected by Fi's appraise. It's ironic though because while Fi asserts trust, it also asserts that those who have lost a sense of trust are to be estranged and don't deserve any trust from Fi. The catch-22. It creeps me out.
I guess that's really what makes IEI/SEI types so interesting. They can utilize Fi better than any of the other types that don't value Fi, but feel no sense of duty to it. It's more a chore or a tool, one that they are adapt with, one they can use for a means to an ends, but something filled with emptiness in usage, something that isn't going to be fought for, and something that is also internally laughed at as a great joke and viewed as a defense of not being able to be attacked with it through 'appraise'.
/you can all complain now and act like a condescending socionics master chef
