I sort of come off as bubbly when I meet new people and generally give off a cheerful vibe. When I have conflict with someone and experience strong negative emotions because of the conflict, even though I don't want to cry or show my emotions to someone else and I try hard to control and keep it all in, it comes out when people ask a few questions, like 'what happened ?'. If they keep pressing I eventually cave in. I like it when someone is there to listen to me rambling when I am such a state and just be there. I am not looking for advice, I am looking for some support through just being there for me.
I know this is not a straightforward answer to your question. Could you give me another example which portrays the difference between Fe and Fi and not in terms of empathy. Like i empathise more easily with the misfortunes of strangers than my friends and family. If something bad happened to someone I have known for a while, I try to find a reason for why it may have happened and see their own actions to be responsible for their misery. I don't say it to their faces for the fear of hurting them and go through the motions of being 'Oh no' and show sadness in my face but at the same time I know it doesn't come from within and is thus it feels fake to me while I am doing it. but I don't press them too much. I get uncomfortable in such situations and just leave them on their own for a while.
