    From Your Understanding, Who Is Better At Reading People- Fi or Fe?

    A question for the ages

    Which cognitive function does a better job at getting a read on and understanding people? For example, being able to determine someones type with the most accuracy?

    Anyone can read people (no, no they can't), but which tends to do it better?

    Its tricky because Fe is about emotional reactions tangible to the outside world (thats how they organize information) whereas Fi is about knowing themselves (this is how they collect information) yet this allows them to sympathize.

    Ignore, dom, tert, aux, all that crap. Look at it from a wholly theoretical perspective on both functions.

    What do you think based of your understanding and experience?

    The one that spends time reading people instead of books...? Which means, probably the extrovert ~

    Yup.

    Se catches all the non-verbal cues, Fe sees and analyzes others' emotions. Fi/Te is individualistic. it relates to other people when it wants to, but usually not very keen or interested in reading them.

    I agree with everyone on Fe.

    I say this because Fe derives its values from the external world. Their value is the world's value, more or less. Fi's value is derived from within. Just based on this, we can conclude that it's more natural for Fe to "become" rather than just "understand".

    I don't know.. in my head it makes more sense the perception functions would be what is "reading" people.

    Se and Fe for the win. Si isn’t too shabby either if paired with Fe, but Te often tries and fails and Fi is give or take depending on what perceiving function its paired with.

    I can't tell if you mean "reading people" as assessing others and the social climate or if you actually mean "typing people."

    For assessing society, Fe. Fi people look out and compare it to what they would feel in that situation and then apply it to others. The out-in-out of Fi takes more processing time than the out...... of Fe.

    For typing people, probably Fe. I can't always recreate in myself another person's logical processes, so there is an ongoing curiosity and indecision when I type people. I have a lot of options to choose from, but that could just be my Ne.

    But when you tack on "understanding people" to your question, I might have to make an argument for Fi. The fact that Fi has to relate everything to itself makes it a very empathetic process. It might take me a little while to churn out something, but I'll feel someone else as if they were myself.

    Fi is too inward looking, and therefor too biased imo. Ex, Sees person A crying. Fi gives A a hug bcause he thinks A is lonely. A replies, "You dont have to hug me every time is stub my toe."

    As an Fi user, I never trust my own sences.
