Generation War / Unsere Mütter, unsere Väter
Fi: Viktor is willing to sacrifice himself to save others, though he usually gets away unscathed. He is kind and gentle towards other people, and he often plays with insects that he finds on his journeys. Most of his emotions remain unspoken, and he doesn’t usually let many other people in on his inner life. Viktor’s sense of right and wrong differs not only from his parents’ but from the general Jewish population. He tends to disagree with any belief that stands merely because it has been societally accepted.
Kill Your Darlings
Introverted Feeling (Fi): Lucien Carr was a rebellious, anti-establishment youth who detested commonality and tradition. Oft times, he was rebellious just for the sake of being differing from the norm, but also to make a statement against living a life that wasn’t your own. “Lu” Carr, as he was known, had a profound influence on everyone with whom he associated, among them, Allan Ginsberg, whom he taught all manner of crass vocabulary.

Harry Potter, J. K. Rowling
Introverted Feeling (Fi): Hagrid takes a liking to everyone he meets, unless they give him some reason to be unlikeable. He is immediately accepting of Ron and Hermione when Harry brings them over for tea, but he can’t stand Draco Malfoy, who is notorious as a bully and a bigot. His compassion even extends to dangerous monsters (his pets have included dragons, giant man-eating spiders, and vicious three-headed dogs), and he often labors under the delusion that even the most bloodthirsty creatures in existence are, in fact, harmless. Hagrid has an unshakable loyalty to Albus Dumbledore, and will physically attack anyone who dares to insult him, but that doesn’t stop him from criticizing Dumbledore to his face when he believes the Hogwarts headmaster is making a mistake. Hagrid is very emotional, but he doesn’t like to show his feelings to anyone else; when he is found to be a descendant of giants, he retreats to his cabin for several weeks, brooding on his shame and embarrassment alone. Hagrid takes it personally when Harry, Ron, and Hermione discontinue taking Care of Magical Creatures in their sixth year, and the three of them have to convince him that they are not actually snubbing him.

Pokemon Anime Franchise
Introverted Feeling (Fi): Tracey lives life his own way. When he meets Ash and Misty, he is following his passion of watching and drawing wild Pokemon. He is very emotional and caring toward those he cares about, but is often oblivious of others’ emotions; he once made an indiscreet comment suggesting that Ash and Misty were in love, provoking an angry response from both of them. He cares very much about Professor Oak’s opinion of his work, owing to the respect he has for the veteran researcher; he cannot contain his nerves when the famed Pokemon Professor reviews his drawings for the first time. Continue reading
Introverted Feeling (Fi): Elly is private about her personal life and lives a completely different lifestyle at home than she does on stage. She often flatly refuses to answer personal questions and says that La Roux is a character that is very different from herself. Her tendency to internalise stress leaves her with physical health problems such as the throat paralysis that caused her lengthy hiatus. Elly’s more recent work is honest and personal.
Dominant Introverted Feeling (Fi): Mickey has an independent streak that drives him to want to be useful. He has a strong desire to help other people and stays with Rose even as he watches her fall away from him. Even as Rose and the Doctor grow closer and Rose farther from Mickey, he doesn’t hate them or even express much anger towards them. Instead, he tags along and tries to help out. He even encourages them. Though he’s quiet about his feelings, he’s deeply sensitive and hurt when other people reject him. Mickey acts according to whatever feels right to him and determines right and wrong for himself rather than differing to other people’s opinions. Continue reading
Ender’s Saga, Orsen Scott Card
Dominant Introverted Feeling (Fi): Jane desperately needs to feel loved and accepted by the few people that she befriends. Though she doesn’t like to let it show, she is deeply hurt when Ender withdraws to be with his wife. When she leaves the filotic web to enter a human body, she is overwhelmed by the emotions she feels and has little control over them. Jane is introspective and likes to personalise her behaviour to meet the needs of the people she interacts with. She doesn’t have many friends, but and she is incredibly selective about whom she choses to reveal herself to. Even then, she doesn’t really reveal her whole self to anyone but Ender and Miro.
Auxiliary Extraverted Sensing (Se): She loves to get reactions out of people and enjoys putting on a show. Her thought process moves quickly and focuses mainly on action. At times, Jane can be very annoying and attention needing, but her swiftness to do the impossible makes her a useful ally. Though most of Jane’s life is not spent in a human body, Jane pays a great deal of attention to physical details in the human world. When she experiences them for the first time herself, she is ecstatic, but also overwhelmed.
Tertiary Introverted Intuition (Ni): Jane is more than aware of the larger implications of her existence (that people would fear a sentient computer) so she is hesitant to reveal herself to the human race. She often obsesses over individual people and concepts (Ender, for instance) and has a hard time accepting that humans don’t always operate on the vast theoretical scale that she does.
Inferior Extraverted Thinking (Te): She is a task-oriented being who knows how to organise people and technology to accomplish impossible things. She is highly intelligent and able to argue complex logic with millions of people at once. Jane communicates bluntly, through facts, and tends to reject emotional communication despite being quite emotional herself (she denies this).
