10) the healthy and functional, well developed inferior Fe: You have learned how to develop your Fe over the years. You can convince most people that you are actually normal. You have a lot of friends, and most people like you. You've learned how to balance your intellect with your intuition, and are in touch with your emotions. You are able to effectively use whichever judging function a situation calls for. You have a comfortable sense of values and ethics, and under your detached exterior, you have a heart. Good job!
Again feelings have nothing to do with ethics. Friends and "people liking you" is only important if the people are up to your standards. The only "judging function" that exists is reason.

An emotion is an automatic response, an automatic effect of man’s value premises. An effect, not a cause. There is no necessary clash, no dichotomy between man’s reason and his emotions—provided he observes their proper relationship. A rational man knows—or makes it a point to discover—the source of his emotions, the basic premises from which they come; if his premises are wrong, he corrects them. He never acts on emotions for which he cannot account, the meaning of which he does not understand. In appraising a situation, he knows why he reacts as he does and whether he is right. He has no inner conflicts, his mind and his emotions are integrated, his consciousness is in perfect harmony. His emotions are not his enemies, they are his means of enjoying life. But they are not his guide; the guide is his mind. This relationship cannot be reversed, however. If a man takes his emotions as the cause and his mind as their passive effect, if he is guided by his emotions and uses his mind only to rationalize or justify them somehow—then he is acting immorally, he is condemning himself to misery, failure, defeat, and he will achieve nothing but destruction—his own and that of others.

42. Anti-Fe This "function" should not be "developed" at all because it is the root cause of all evil in the history of man.

I guess I look like a 9 today. I'm quite clumsy but most people seems to find it cute or funny. And people look for my company more than I can handle actually.
But when it comes to strong feelings I can act like a 6. I don't know how to deal with strong emotions and yes, they burst out of me inappropiately. I don't want all people to like me though. Just some of them that I value the most.

about 10:
You can convince most people that you are actually normal.
yes, but not people who know me better.

You have a lot of friends, and most people like you.
I could have, I guess, but having too many friends is tiring. So I prefer to mantain just the relationships I prefer (and I quite suck in keeping in contact with them too)

You've learned how to balance your intellect with your intuition, and are in touch with your emotions.

The "feeling" function in jung is that which identifies wants. The "thinking" function in jung identifies true/false. Of course identifying true/false is the means by which we develop values and ethics from wants, that's why everyone has both a t and an f function. The idea behind jung is that F developed in itself will not consciously use the thinking function; reason to make these value judgments. Like all other functions, F functions do not exist independently of their opposites, they're one end of the continuum. Thinking judgments are identified as the unconscious source of Feeling judgments, and the other way around, dependent on which one dominates. All typology claims is that one dominants the conscious -- becomes the preferred and appreciated and that this differs in individuals. The development of the opposing function is eventual as a means to complete the circuit.

Also, if there's confusion, the term "feeling" in jungian typology is not related to the sensation of emotion.

I'm glad some people find this post relevant/entertaining/useful even though I have determined I am not in fact INTP, so may be misinformed about them. Then again, maybe not all of you are INTP either. ;)
