Fi or Fe?

Which feeling function can recreate the feelings of others internally through imagining and then act based on that feeling?

Between Fe and Fi which is more likely to pay attention to body language to infer internal feelings?

Assuming the first is Fi, does it use it's imagination/past experience to bring into consciousness the feeling they have had, and then assume that the other party(the one who originally was experiencing the emotion) feels the same? This would hypothetically be the subjective factor? While I suppose Fe doesn't really feel the pain of others, but rather externally acts accordingly?

Both Fi and Fe can recreate feelings of others internally.

An Fe user will effortlessly do this and apply an extrinsic motivator (outside the person's self) as the cause of the feeling.

An Fi user requires an extra step, because Fi is usually contained within the user.
This step is called projection, and once it's done it applies an intrinsic motivator (within the person's self) as the cause of the feeling.

The accuracy of either's observation is only half correct, because causes of feelings are usually both objectively intrinsic and extrinsic in nature.
