And the MAIN reason I feel uncomfortable around Fe types is that I feel very, very much put on the spot. If I felt that I was allowed to ingore them, it wouldn't be so bad, but I feel like I'm being engaged in a manner which I do not wish to be engaged in, and I feel obligated to comply.
Olga mentioned that the degree of my distaste for Fe almost points toward Fe as a 4th function. I have considered that, but IxTp doesn't make sense for me. I'm far too dynamic and "proctive, restless" describes me much better than "calm". The answer lies in Rocky's response to this thread.
When we're confronted with out 4th function, we don't feel like we need to comply. We feel it's something that others shouldn't expect of us. It's sensitive when directly criticized, but we try to avoid it altogether whenever possible.
When we're confronted with out 3rd function, we are uncomfortable because we do feel like we need to comply. We try to "fit in" in our use of our third function, just trying not to stand out, and we greatly dislike it when someone makes us feel that our use of it is inadequate, or even simply demands that we use it.
