“How!?” you screech, non-emotionally since you’re playing your role well.
Ah, by way of the Fi/Ti distinction being obscure as fuck, at least as it has…
"A Fi may scorn an Fe for compromising authentic values to preserve group harmony, while an Fe may scorn the Fi for stubbornly doing what they feel they must do despite it being completely inappropriate and causing pain to others…There’s also a reason that J/P is a useful category: all Js are Fe/Te and all Ps are Fi/Ti. So a lot of the conflict in these functions is going to echo what was sorted out and described as the J/P conflict."
This is a perfect description of the major difference between my father (INFP) and me (INFJ). We get along pretty well, but when we do fight, it’s over his perception that I’m “compromising authentic values” and my perception that he’s “stubbornly doing what he feels he must do.” J is actually the least strongly expressed of my letters, but understanding that my dad is a very typical INFP (if such a creature exists) has confirmed me in my J-ness.
(Also, I don’t know how to reblog novangla’s post so that it actually shows up??)

Most people think of Founding Father Alexander Hamilton as the face on the $10 bill. Either that or the primary author of the Federalist Papers who was killed in a duel by Vice President Aaron Burr in 1804. But few people are aware that the celebrated Revolutionary War…
Yeeeah, my sense is that Hamilton’s friendship with Laurens was one of those early modern ~romantic friendships~, and that Hamilton could be characterized as biromantic if we were going to use modern terminology to describe the sexuality of someone who died over 200 years ago. But that’s a big if, and I’m very reluctant to describe any pre-20th-century figure as “bi” or “straight” or “gay” when those concepts just didn’t exist before the 20th century.
