Hmm. Me and my best friend (also an ISFP) often start talking about how there's no point in something, or how doing something is worthless for us, that we don't enjoy it and therefore it's pointless to us. I'm pretty sure that's Fi in both of us. We also very rarely do something for logical benefit - we do something if we like it, and if we don't like it, we won't do it. We both agree that there's no point in us getting a job right now because we'd get stressed over it and we don't really want to work yet. Fi pretty much governs our decisions about everything.

We also talk sometimes about how we want to go somewhere nice, like a mountain range, a vast forest, or wherever we think of, just because we feel like doing it. We both love sensual experiences, we want to see beautiful things and feel the natural world among us. That's Se, as we want to follow our physical impulses and experience the experience. We also hate thinking of the future, we want to live in the present. Another Se thing we do is that we both love shiny things. As soon as something shiny appears, we have to stop and stare at it for a few minutes... and several pictures end up being taken so we can continue to stare later.

Ni is what stops us from following those impulses, though. In fact, without Ni I think we'd be crazy people running around half naked on the streets and acting like we just escaped from the loony bin. Ni is also the source of any gut feelings or intuitive ideas I get about anything.

I can't speak much for Te, I hardly use it at all. The only Te thing I do is that I like making lists, but Te is supposedly into organizing people and things into categories and making to-do lists. All of that just sounds evil to me! Te is supposed to develop with age for us, though.

Say I had a packet of sweets.

Fi says it is within my moral compass and that it would improve my inner harmony for me to consume this bag of sweets.

Se is what made me want to run off and get a bag of sweets.

Ni is the little voice I'm blocking out that's saying "You could be doing better things than eating that bag of sweets."

Te is what comes out when you take my packet of sweets away and I'm like, "YOU KNOW WHAT YOU ARE, YOU'RE STUPID! AND YOU KNOW WHY YOU'RE STUPID? BECAUSE UHH...UHH...I lost my train of thought...umm...god damn it. Gimmie back my sweets please."

I really really relate to the part about Te. Most of my planners have become diaries. XD To-do lists (and the associated thinking) have been growing on me as I've gotten busier and they have begun to be more necessary... as long as the things on the list are not terribly important to me. It just kills me to put a check-box next to 'write a story' or 'meet friends at the studio.'

Well, my Fi: I have strong values and strong feelings of right and wrong....my emotions practically lead me in life; Se - ocasionally I have urges to go out and party, to sit in a car and drive away, to dance, to explore my enviroment etc.; P - I pretty much don't like planning, I like things to be spontaneous, don't like to write checklists and stuff, it stifles me.
