The 3F attitude is characterized by a self-negative (Fs-) and others-negative (Fo-) disposition. This disposition creates an attitude that is plagued by an awareness of limitations, weakness, harm, negative consequences, and manipulation within the realm of physics. This awareness applies internally, externally, and within the exchange of information in the aspect. 3Fs have a keen sense of how they can be harmed by physics. The strategies that each 3F employs to deal with the insecurity may differ in behavior or execution but the core attitude of subjective vulnerability and insecurity will remain consistent for all 3Fs. Below are some common beliefs and behaviors that you may see with 3Fs. Please keep in mind that these are generalities and do not represent the vast sub-archetypes held within the overall 3F attitude.
