    I'm a great believer in the theory that each function holds a different, specific role in the typological set-up of the 16 types.

    And you are spot on for me (INFJ). I get great relief from figuring out solutions to problems using my tertiary Ti. If I'm presented with a stressful situation in real life which has no obvious or immediate solution, then I'll seek relief by solving crossword puzzles or playing logic games on my PalmOne device.

    Costrin has it right, though, when he warns of the danger of overindulging the relief function. It happens to me quite a lot, as I am forced to overuse Ti in my job. Either I get stuck in analysis paralysis and become incapable of making a decision, or I'll play my logic games to excess and totally neglect the more important stuff I'm supposed to be doing.

    In fact, I'm doing that right now, by participating in this thread instead of getting on with my work!

    With no problems.

    Oh, crap... Is that why we're here?

    Seriously, well put. That is like seeing the thought that was inside my own head all filled out perfectly. If that makes sense...

    It's really funny to watch an ITJ turn into a wibbledy ball of fluff for a few minutes and then go, "All right, enough of that. Time to get back to work."

    I'd say, if I have a problem, with Si and Te, it goes like this:

    Si: How does the problem make me feel? How painful is it to remember it? Do I need to spend some time trying to accept it before I confront it head on? Do I know how to solve it on my own?

    That leads to....

    Te: What action steps do I need to take to solve this problem? If I can't solve it on my own, I must look elsewhere for a solution, outside of myself. Is there someone else that's knowledgeable of a similar problem? How emotional will they make the confrontation about the problem?

    If the problem is solved, then I combine Si and Te, and look to correct myself so that the problem doesn't arise again.

    You were on the right track with what Te does. We start structuring things very rigidly hoping that will either make the problem disappear or act like it doesn't exist.

    What is Feeling?
    Feeling is primarily a process.....that imparts to the content a definite value in the sense of acceptance or rejection. In the same way that thinking organizes the contents of consciousness under concepts, feeling arranges them according to their value. Feeling, like thinking, is a rational function, since values in general are assigned according to the laws of reason...

    I'd be more inclined to use Se, to get out and do something active and fun, interact with others and not focus on anything that's stressing me, that refreshes me as taking my mind off problems for a while clears my head enough to come back ready to look at new perspectives without feeling overwhelmed.

    I use Ti lots and lots and lots. Especially here in the forums. I wouldn't just call it "relief", it's more like my handy-dandy solve it all. Ni-Ti works well together in solving problems. As long as you give me enough time to mull things over.

    are you an enneagram 5? i imagine enneagram 5 to be very associated with high Ti development. i'm an infj who is a 5 and i feel overly Ti compared to most infjs. except those who are 5s. who detach, who observe, who investigate, compile ideas, conceptual understandings, etc to deal with and organize their own inner environment before expressing it, extroverting it, objectifying it as a specific goal/mission to accomplish in the world.

    I'm haven't looked forward, but I wouldn't be surprised if someone else has already posted this but:

    Tertiary Defense

    Tertiary Temptation
    Why do we always come here?

    I guess we'll never know.

    It's like a kind of torture,
    To have to watch this show.
