I am an emoter. When I am upset about something, or on the other hand unusually happy, I like to let people know. That is, if I think someone will care to know (it's not like I go around emoting on complete strangers). If I am all alone, on the other hand, or I don't think anyone around me will be interested, then I will keep to myself.
Is this an Fe thing? I mean, are Fi users (either dom, aux, or tert, since even T types can have developed Feeling functions) likely to do this, too? Or are they more the type to keep their emotions (not the same as feelings) to themselves even around familiar people?
For example: If I suffer some acute pain, like stubbing my toe-- If there's someone around to hear, I will probably make some sort of noise to alert them (I don't really think about this before I do it, I just do it automatically); but if I'm all alone in the house, I will stay silent and just wince and bear it, because there's no point in making any noise just to alert myself, because I already know I've hurt myself.
I'm just wondering about this. Because there's been a lot of discussion on how it's a fallacy to think that emotion=xxFx and non-emotion=xxTx. But could it possibly be more accurate to say that emotion=Fe and non-emotion=Fi? Ergo, an xxTx with Fe as a function might appear to be more emotional at times than an xxFx with Fi...?
