Yeah, @pla.xitore13, you got the basic gist of what I’m saying. For INFJ the urge to “get revenge” occurs via the Fi Scorpio id. The id is a motivational function. INFJs are “negatively motivated”, which means that it’s not so much what can be attained in the world that motivates them, but, what can be destroyed and murdered. Many great INFJ artists are identifiable on this basis alone.
Fe, on the other hand, is not a motivation for an INFJ in and of itself. It must be looked at as a way for the INFJ to “get revenge” on the world. It must be looked at in tandem with the id function because the id function is the motivating function. However, without the aux. Fe, the INFJ is pretty powerless (or coarse) to bring to bear upon the world the deadly impulses that inside them and poisoning them. So, what I mean by “getting revenge on the world” is that if the INFJ would simply learn to express the contents of the Scorpio Fi id (expression is mostly a thing of the aux. function), then, they will simultaneously discharge the deadly contents that lie in the id whilst bringing it to bear on the world (heals or sublimates the Se inferior of INFJ too). So, it is a form of action that they are so forestalled in too. Yes, they can’t take direct action as they so often obsess over, but, they can take artful (or magical) indirect (or recreated) action.
This is tantamount to getting revenge on the world, but, not in a cynical way, because through the act of expression of the deadly vengeful impulses the INFJ will find themselves transformed into a realm of play and lightness. And what seems so heavy and deadly on the inside is different on the outside (when expressed). And a boon to boot. For the world (even if they ignore or chastise) and for the self.
The INFJ unburdens themselves and gets to be a hero in the process. How are they heroic? They tell the world how fucked the world is. How painful. How heartbreaking. How much they have suffered. Etc. But, they do it via Fe which is a cloaking function, a smokescreen, a chameleonic kaleidoscope of all the shades and color of the rainbow. In short, Fe is the art function. It is a beautifying function. For INFJ, the Fe aux. is a way to create a pleasing effect out of essentially deep and profound psychological experiences, often painful and negative.
It’s like getting people to eat up your poisons because you clothe them in enticing words, sounds, lines, etc. And moreover, it’s not really poison anymore at the level of Fe aux. It is pleasure (much the way a sad song is pleasurable whereas the experience that motivated the songwriter to write the song was not). It is a recreation of painful events transfigured into art and esthetic beauty.
And it’s no longer poison or revenge at that level. It’s now healing. Like poison that expressed can heal. It’s magic. For everyone.
It’s like someone who sets out to get revenge and simply by expressing the motivation that caused one to want revenge, heals. Themselves and the world.
Now, the INFJ is at play. It’s all magically transfigured and resolved. Simply by expression.
You guys both get it. Both things are right that you are saying. And I’m very certain that both of you are INFJs just because of the stuff that you both wrote here. This is what INFJs sound like. When I hear this sort of shit, I know I’m dealing with an INFJ.
Just so everyone else knows for type identification purposes. If you sound like either one of these guys, you’re an INFJ.
