So in Lenorre's book she speaks to the problems that happen when folks overdevelop the tertiary function rather than develop the functions in the natural order.
So to follow the discussion:
1) you have to buy into cognitive functions
2) think they may, mostly come in some sort of specific order, relative to the types
IRL, I tend to use Ne, Te, Fi rather than the conventional Ne, Fi, Te for an enfp. So I guess I overuse Te. There are pluses and minuses here and retrospectively I can see how I have both been helped and hindered by this approach in my life.
It makes me anaytical and driven and gives me some structure, but can also come across as bitchy, dominating, cold and bossy. If I am being logical I also like to be in control. Because it couples with Fi, I can also look moody as I swap between the two. Also the contrast can be irritating and unpredictable to others-am I fluffy puppy or dominant, analyzing puppy?
So my question-rather than spend lots of time "fixing" Fi to make it stronger-the lenorre solution, why not just build Te even more to make it less infantile and problematic? Why cant we just have an extra 16 personality types for us wierdos who overuse our tertiary functions?
