    Extraverted Thinking/Feeling vs Introverted Thinking/Feeling?

    It seems like people with Fe in their cognitive stack are more likely to have their moods affected by external sources, such as how other people are behaving, how other people are treating them. Their moods may even be affected by certain parts of the environment that may not have to do with people at all, such as being in a place filled with images and objects not suited to their personal tastes-- Fe-users would likely regulate their feelings and be flexible with their own personal tastes in order to fit into the external environment and ensure the external environment progresses the way they believe is right, regardless of how it's going to affect their own feelings. For the Fe-users, their feelings are more likely to be affected by anything in the external world.
    And I noticed that people with Fi in their cognitive stack seem to be more likely to come up with their own way to instill certain moods within themselves. They seem equally likely to feel a certain way if something in the external environment is not suited to their personal tastes, but will deal with it by trying to manipulate the environment to be according to their personal tastes rather than being flexible with their feelings. This is neither worse nor better than how Fe users deal with the environment when it's not suited to their personal liking-- it just depends on how one manipulates the external environment based on what they believe is right (in the Fe-users' case) and how one manipulates the external environment based on what they personally like (in the Fi-users' case).

    As for people with Te in their cognitive stack, I've noticed that they seem more likely to look to the external environment to understand something, and are more likely to have their personal understanding affected by sources of info they are exposed to in the environment. They are more likely to be flexible with their reasoning for something if they find sources that demonstrate reliable and accurate results. And they are more likely to manipulate the external environment to ensure the external environment progresses the way they believe is effective and reasonable for the environment, regardless of how convenient and effective things will turn out for themselves (which makes sense, since they are more concerned with what they personally like-- Fi to balance their Te-- when manipulating the environment to be externally effective and efficient).
    For people with Ti in their cognitive stack, they seem more likely to rely on their own reasoning to understand something, they are less likely to have their personal understanding affected by any new sources of info. They are more likely to manipulate the external environment to be according to what they believe is right (which makes sense, since they balance their Ti with Fe). This is neither worse nor better than the Te approach-- it just depends on how one manipulates the external environment to be as effective as they want it (Te-users) or how one manipulates the environment to meet their own personal beliefs (Ti-users).

    In short:
    Fe-users = feelings are affected by the external environment; are more likely to play an active role in ensuring their surroundings are according to what they believe is right for everyone, rather than what they want for everyone

    Fi-users = feelings are affected by internal, personal efforts to instill certain emotions

    Te-users = reasoning is affected by the external environment; are more likely to play an active role in ensuring their surroundings are operating according to the effectiveness and efficacy they want, rather than what is convenient for them

    Ti-users = reasoning is affected by internal, personal efforts to instill understanding


    Thoughts?

    I tend to view it simple as objectiveness (Te, Fe) vs subjectiveness (Ti/Fi).

    FPs don't manipulate the environment, they adapt to it. If you are counting TJs as "Fi" types and basing it on this you are making a mistake because FPs and TJs are opposites.

    When it comes to "Te" types, they're not flexible with their reasoning, quite the opposite in my experience. They make up requirements of others for what they can say or do to affect their reasoning (i.e. you need credentials). You typically can't have both the need to manipulate the environment to fit your agenda and being open to new perspectives well, these things are conflicting.

    TPs similarly, don't manipulate the environment to fit their ideas, they adapt themselves to it, to new information. But there is also some conflation with N/S here, because S types will typically change their reasoning after they experience something 1st hand and appear rigid in their thinking otherwise.

    Generally, J types manipulate the environment, P types adapt themselves to it.
