Perhaps responsive to Fe is a perfect word; susceptible I’m not so sure, even with your description of what you mean by it @Wendy; I figure though that if it’s the case that isfp can project a lot of different energies (Se/Ni persona stuff, like from Blake’s How it feels to be completely fucking stolen) or if their upbringing is very influential on them, that it’s possible that some isfps will be what Wendy described and others more like “responsive,” and others–in fact, those who are more in control of themselves and in touch with themselves, I would Imagine–can see and devalue Fe efforts to the extent that they appear blind to Fe. No, better than just blind: immune.
If you have hyperactive Fe, like my Fe Tertiary which is holding a sign that says “Will Work To Pay Off Emotional Debts” (see prax thread about “can infj be bought”), and you witness isfp ignoring Fe, it can be skin crawlingly uncomfortable. The first fourteen times it looks kind of Goddess like, like, precisely how a queen might accept a gift from a wealthy subject in court, nod, and then wait till the gift has been removed to some gift room before asking the subject exactly the thing she would have asked had their been no gift.
It can look like going to the Verizon store and having them tell you that the issue with your phone is on apple’s side, and the Verizon dude says “I’m really sorry, I wish it was something I could help with,” and Fe would either be pissed or accommodating but is likely to validate that the communication has occurred–likely to shrug, nod, smile, swear, whine, speak in a responsive and sensical way. But isfp doesn’t need to do any of that. Isfp can take a totally different route, outside social behavior. Extrasocial. This is the part where I wander off and look at stuff or turn on my headphones so I don’t have to fight my body so hard to keep it from stepping in for isfp and saying “oh okay! Cool so honey he’s saying that we have to go to apple to sort it out.”
Which, the first fifty times I did blurt that out, assuming she didn’t understand what the proverbial Verizon-guy-who-can’t-help-you was saying (becauseI believed that, as a rule, everyone nods their head or says “okay,” or makes a sound like “huh” or anything of the sort to indiCate they’ve heard–not necessarily to concede but you know, to stop the person from repeating themselves. But when I even make those sounds, it relieves the tension in the air that isfp has no problem overlooking, tension that is on Isfps side. Isfp Fi wears high heels and when they need to be on Fe’s balls, isfp knows that the longer she stands there the greater the divergence of pain between herself and Mr Fe-balls. It’s not sadistic but utilitarian.
I don’t do that because I’m too uncertain about what I think I want to justify causing trauma in strangers to get it. And secondly I tend to assume an easier route will reveal itself without my going all Italian Mafia on the opponent. I can see forty ways forward that don’t involve me donning Heels, plus a few that no doubt do, but just because they make my ass look great.
In isfp i would imagine the tolerance for other people’s pain in service of their own aims stems from total lack of Ne, leaving them always in that Si corner fighting for life. So they totaly lack uninvited impulses toward imagining alternative easy outcomes, or of imagining a future where the person on the other side of the negotiation might have some trajectory into the isfps life in a way separate from this run in. Isfp is like “but first I’ll survive today.”
so my experience is that isfp is about as Unsusceptible to Fe as is possible.
Btw what isfp says to proverbial Verizon guy is verbatim what she already said before. Maybe prefaced with “okay so like I was saying, l need this fixed by tonight.” Crush.
