Like the subject says, why is Fi so fragile? It seems that it only exists to get crushed, smashed, crumbled and hurt. I know there are good sides to it, but it seems that it causes more problems than otherwise. My nephew is definitely Fi, and possibly ISFP, and his life is quite a mess, because he is so afraid of everything. I've learned how to overcome many of my fears--but that's exactly what I had to do--overcome them. I look at my wife and kids, and they don't have anywhere near the problems I have had, both growing up, and as an adult. You read all the threads here, and it sure seems that Fi is more a hindrance than a help, and as I ponder it, I begin to wonder just _why_ this is... Any thoughts?
