^See, this is exactly why I think she’s ESI and not EIE. She is simplifying things to her own taste rather than broadening it towards her’s and everyone else’s taste and allowing her own tastes/likes/dislikes to be lost. She is functioning as an Ij type, even in a lengthy post that is a bit uncharacteristic of her so far (which I love because we can really dissect her cognition here). That is the essence of Fi, and she is not hesitating to go straight into it, which is Se.
EIE is more concerned with social stances, sides, boundaries, and preserving the atmosphere. Which doesn’t mean our only purpose in life is to kiss ass - it just means we are ignoring our Fi in favor of things that don’t even cross an average to unhealthy ESI’s mind or seem absolutely superficial to them (and in the same way I often make fun of or even find distasteful stereotypically Fi things, especially -Fi like in ESI and IEE [IEE I tend to clash with more and yes I’m speaking of a personal dislike of my own here, but I am not Fi blind... if I was really Fi valuing I wouldn’t be so willing to share anything and everything about mine and others’ lives when the opportunity arises]).
I don’t particularly care for the standard MBTI idea of Fe, or MBTI Fe influenced idea of enneagram 2 as well~ but there is a speck of truth to many stereotypes, and it’s true that Fe is more likely to try to mend things in a tense atmosphere if they feel that is what must be done for the group to keep things sailing... Or they may just as well be the instigator in the stress, for the very same reason (most typically known of Beta Fe and -Fe, but every Fe ego whether Alpha or Beta can take Fe BOTH ways). I don’t see this persistent Fe itch in her to the slightest degree, so ESI & Fe Ignoring seems likely to me.
The fact that she waited until after some beef was starting to rise to explain what she truly meant instead of already taking the group’s feelings into consideration IS FE IGNORING AS FUCK!!!
