In my eyes, Fi is my ethical standpoint that has been consistent for most of my life: Everyone's perspective matters. All my life, with the help of Ne, I've done a pretty good job of fleshing out the perspectives that I've been presented with, and of juggling multiple ones at a time. So, really, I've gotten rather used to working with my Fi in mind. It's, of course, come to other ethical conclusions as well. For example, these days I'm fixated on becoming vegetarian---an idea mostly backed by my fluttering Fe, among other factors.

Now a story. A few years ago I came to the intuitive realization that I was having a bit of an identity crisis. Something was out of whack in me, and to find a solution I turned to my good ol' buddies: literature, philosophy and history (and, well, pretty much everything I picked up in my studies). I looked at a wide variety of data from fiction, philosophical texts, and a variety of world belief systems (both living and dead), and narrowed them down with my intuition. I then turned to my Ti to work in tandem with my Fi to essentially pick from works and build myself my own personal philosophy. Moreover, I find myself constantly "checking" this world view of mine with my Ti every so often to make sure it's still valid.

Where Te comes into play is when I get into a philosophical debate and drop something like, "Well, Heidegger demonstrates that our interpretation of the world is central not only to our knowing, but to our being". (Of course, some will just reply, "But Heidegger was a Nazi!" :frustrating:) Honestly though, I can't bring myself to use my Te in most situations. I find I can never drag myself away from theory. It might actually be a bit of a problem: I can't bring myself to write fiction or teach ESL anymore---both acts drawing upon the planning and process-awareness that comes from Te mastery. If anything, it's almost as if Te constantly conflicts with my Fi.
