    Default Let's continue talking about Fi/ Fi DS

    "I felt like what you wrote was a personal attack on my character." Being especially guarded about one's character.
    Is this related to Fi DS? Why does the person experience anxiety of one's character?

    "Cheating is inherently wrong" - this is more fixated ethics.

    I'm constantly looking to align the real with the ideal.I've been more oriented toward being overly idealistic by expecting the real to match the ideal. My thinking side is dominent. The result is that sometimes I can be overly impersonal or self-centered in my approach, not being understanding of others in the process and simply thinking "you should do this" or "everyone should follor this rule"..."regardless of how they feel or where they're coming from"which just isn't a good attitude to have. It is a way, though, to give oneself an artificial sense of self-justification. LSE

    Depends on the reasons for saying it. If the impulse is to control the way others see them, it's insecurity driving the anxiety. If it's a reaction to something they see as disrespectful, then it's different.

    It can go a bunch of ways. Personally, i'd probably never make that statement, because someone elses opinion holds no weight. It would have to be someone close to me to get anxiety to build. But on the other hand, I know people that would absolutely respond to this type of thing in a battle fervor, a few of them EII's even.
    I would say that ethically you are still supposed to act as if you have unilateral responsibility; but simultaneously you have to be able to see the other as a fully autonomous, free, aware person.

    Medicalizing social problems has the additional benefit of rendering society not responsible for those social ills. If it’s a disease, it’s nobody’s fault. Yay empiricism.
