    Default "There is nothing to gain from my Inferior Function"

    ITP: "There is nothing to gain from participating in society, I'd be more knowledgable if I just observe." (inferior Fe)
    IFP: "There is nothing to gain from working toward what I want, I don't want to assert myself and potentially tread on anyone's toes." (inferior Te)
    INJ: "There is nothing to gain from negotiating with how things are, it is inherently inferior to what I envision." (inferior Se)
    ISJ: "There is nothing to gain from negotiating with what is unusual, there's simply no need to rock the boat." (inferior Ne)

    ESP: "There is nothing to gain from my imagination, reality packs a far greater punch." (inferior Ni)
    ENP: "There is nothing to gain from considering my past actions, I'm too pre-occupied with my inventiveness." (Inferior Si)
    ETJ: "There is nothing to gain from knowing how I or other people feel, I know what I want and I'm going to get it." (Inferior Fi)
    EFJ: There is nothing to gain from knowing the truth, it would jeopardize my standing in society." (Inferior Ti)

    Does any of this feel accurate?

    [edit]I should add that these are meant to be immature positions to take.

    Not for me, since I've put extensive work on working on Te, so I no longer have it as a real weakness.

    These are rather good. I think they summarize some common ideas pretty well, regardless of whether or not one gave merit to MBTI.

    And, I feel the statements in the OP correspond nicely to the said MBTI types, as well.

    I forgot to add though that these are very accurate.

    Don't know about the other ones, but I couldn't see how the INJ one will fit.

    If we think the external world can't be changed... I doubt we'll be typed as a J under your conventional MBTI questionnaire.

    The idea is that an unhealthy INJ wouldn't take reality into consideration at all, and would refuse to accept any sort of compromise toward their "visions" and their self-proclaimed seer-like status. An unhealthy J tends to take an "all-or-nothing" attitude in their decision-making, whereas a healthy J is willing to negotiate for what they want and is willing to admit defeat when push comes to shove and their vision is unattainable.

    Nothing to be gained, except balance.

    So accurate. Sorry to revive and old-ish thread but I definitely act that way. I can relate to the INJ one too, though.

    I'm just starting to understand this beyond the four dichotomies, it's so interesting once you really get into it in depth.

    I recognize the "there is nothing to gain" part. Although I also recognize the "not treading on toes" part, this doesn't seem to be related to Te?
