    You have an abnormally developed Ti for your type. Ti is considered to be the trickster/comic relief function for ENFP, so you are probably a funny guy, or you think you are. lol
    or something like that

    nothing personal, just a theory for your type.


    Hmm, interesting. You know, I wonder if that rickster/comic relief thing(assuming you are correct) would account for my brashness when being humorous in real life...It would make a lot of sense, and would help explain what I feel is my most diverging trait when compared with the stereotypical ENFP...I'm called contrarian, analytical and grumpy at times. It's a part I occasionally play to be humorous.

    No. With my massive learning skills, I have already discovered this theory that you are proclaiming in this thread. Also, your avatar is ugly.

    You should try to say that in French.
    The result should be interesting.

    I've heard that the tertiary function is also know as the relief function and I was just wondering if there is a lot of truth to this. It would make sense in this case because I'm tertiary Si.

    Has anyone else had an experience of your tertiary function being a major source of relief when other things wouldn't calm you? Or is this just a fluke?

    I would imagine relief and the different function would look something like this: (i pulled this out of my ass)

    Si: reminder of past experience calmed you
    Se: something distracted you from your problem
    Ni: You got a good sense that everything would work out
    Ne: you realized that your problem is something else
    Ti: You figure out how to solve the problem
    Te: you started organizing your house(idk )
    Fi: you convince yourself that the problem isn't important to you
    Fe: You told someone else about your problem
    Never thought about it, but it seems to make sense to me. I get stressed when answers (understanding) aren't apparent and clear to me. Like a problem I'm experiencing or considerations about my future. I'm forced to examine the situation, and use Ni to put together the data I have. It provides a vague understanding of the situation and helps me feel better like everything is going to work out

    What I'm wondering is do other non-INP types get the same feeling from Si? To me it seems like a common thing for people to be relieved by that, but I've never really thought about it.

    Kinda like "oh, other people did it this way? then it must be ok!"
    or "I remember when I did this before and it worked out, so it must be ok!"

    seems like a common thing people would do
    That seems to make sense. I don't use Si at the teritiary level, but as a Ni user at the teritiary level, it seems to give me some relief to look forward to the future which helps me to be a bit optimistic when the present is getting me down.

    Along the same line, if I'm feeling overwhelmed it helps to take a step back and get a vision of the bigger picture.

    The inferior functions are definitely "relieving" when I actually get them going. SiTe works wonders for me.
