I have a very strong and solid exterior as a result of many years living in my Ni and pushing and shoving down my Fe because of things to happen to me in my teenage years. I am the guy who always looks pissed off, cold and hard partly because I am very pensive and always thinking and also I have a very dark aloof physical appearance. If you did not know me, you would think me an INTJ. The moment you speak to me though I will crack a warm smile and be very gentle and comforting.
As the years have carried on and I've began to look into my Fe and began to live inside of it and really grapple with it. Emotions are not a weakness. Let me repeat that, emotions are not a weakness. They are a strength, it is the cultural stigma that is placed on them that makes us think they are a weakness. Emotions are far more powerful than any bomb any gun any standing army. Physical muscles grow weary and need sustenance, weaponry needs ammunition and it malfunctions when used too much. Emotion, when harnessed is a bottomless pit of strength and drive.
It is far easy, to pick up a gun and aim it at someone and pull the trigger. It is a difficult thing altogether, to extend a hand of compassion and friendship to someone you would consider an enemy. We people tend to go the easier route much to our own detriment.
