The Chronicles of Narnia, C.S. Lewis
Fi: Lucy always follows her heart, even when her head and her siblings are telling her otherwise. She tends to be a bit over-trusting of people, which can get her into trouble at times, but generally, it serves to make her gentle and loving. Though she is sensitive to other people’s criticisms, she is quick to forgive, and quicker to love. Lucy wants to put herself to good service and loves to help people. Aslan’s Christmas gift to her is one that aids her in serving people better. At times, Lucy can get so caught up following her heart that he can be disobedient. She hates it when people disbelieve her and dislikes being treated like a child.
Ne: Lucy has the least difficulty of any of the Pevensie children accepting the possibility of Narnia. She has a big imagination and is open to all manner of possibility. She is an inspiration to all who know her and she sees potential in everyone. She easily spots connections between other people that are unspoken but run deep beneath the surface.
Si: Lucy has a hard time leaving Narnia (more so than her siblings) because her best memories are so rooted there. Lucy is reluctant to embrace change, but enjoys revisiting memorable places from her past. She holds strongly to her memories of Car Paravel and when she is queen in Narnia, she spends time revisiting various places in the kingdom while her siblings are tending to other matters.
Te: Lucy isn’t the most logical of people, as she tends to follow her heart. Her Te function isn’t extremely well developed (mostly because she’s so young). Lucy doesn’t care about evidence when it comes to her beliefs, but rather, believes whatever feels right to her.

I like your description of Lucy. I myself is an INFP. I think that being a feeling type (especially an INFP) is always more difficult than to be a thinking type in this world. As they are very weak at logics and facts, it makes them weaker not only in controlling others but themselves also.

I’ve got to disagree on that. It is a beautiful and horrible thing to feel deeply, but it is just as terrible to know that you should cry and to lack the capability of doing so.
I have an ENFP sister. One day, when we were talking about the tough times in our lives, she turned to me and said, “Your life is so much harder than mine, but you like yours better than I like mine.”
I suppose that’s the difference. A T-type might have a harder life than an F-type, but the T-type walks through it telling themselves that they don’t have time to feel anything about the pain. It doesn’t make it any less difficult. It doesn’t even make it so that the pain isn’t there. The pain is just as bad whether you choose to feel it or not.
When we talk about T-types and F-types, we’re not talking about robots vs puppies. We’re talking about people. Katniss Everdeen is a T-type, but her PTSD is way worse than Peeta’s, and he’s an F-type. His self-control is also much better.
Thinkers are not always more disciplined, and they definitely don’t always have better control of their emotions. Control over the emotions all comes down to maturity. MBTI merely describes where our feelings are oriented in our thought processes.
That’s my ramble.
Perfect reply here!
As an extremely logical INFP I am, I find it harsh and unacceptable to be called weak in facts and unable to control my feelings. It is all about the difference between Ti and Te, Fi and Fe that someone is called emotional or logical! I myself find it impossible to explain myself since the everyone sees the pure strong logic in me but I am as well indeed one weird INFP. I was thinking to describe it as islands of pure logic floating in an ocean of feelings!
There are many very logical people of all types, and this post is in no way a reflection of all INFPs.
I am logically moved by your depiction. I feel the same way about myself. Actually the only moment when I wish people would understand me better is when they think I’m way too logical . I use logic as a tool.
