    This is a good way to think of it. I know it might sound bad, but it seems accurate, to me anyway.

    As much as I dislike being viewed as selfish.... You are right...

    But that doesnt make it bad, as she said. These feelings and thoughts can be used to help others and such just as much as it can be used to help ourselves.... if that makes any sense

    Im not really all that intelligent when it comes to cognitive functions, but heres how I see us Fi dominants. Although I dont think this to be true of all ISFPs, in my case, although I can be very emotional and sensitive, I find it very difficult to express these emotions. I do not like to talk about feelings with others, and I never really say how I feel about certain situations. This of course lead people to think that I dont really have much depth. I seem kinda like that guy who is kinda strange and doesnt really talk about anything important. Because our feelings and feelings about stuff (like politics, rules, the environment etc.) is introverted we have an internal value system that we basically go by. In other words we dislike things not because others dislike them but because we believe them to be wrong and vice versa. Because of this we are not very subject to conformity. I suppose a quick example of our value system can be seen here.

    Fe I believe is seemingly the opposite. Easily can talk about feelings, and does things based on the environment i.e. conformity.

    Please correct me if Im wrong...
    I don't understand Fi very well, but to the extent that I understand it, what you said sounds correct. I also believe you are correct about people with strong Fe being able to easily talk about feelings. Fe also involves values, however, just like Fi. Strong Fe users can usually talk about values just as easily as they can talk about feelings. It may be the case that strong Fe users are somewhat more conformist than strong Fi users on average; Fe doesn't seem to directly relate to conformity, however. Fe can easily involve active non-conformity; one example archetype involving Fe gone awry is the crackpot cult leader -- there isn't much that is conformist about such an individual.
