    Default Inferior Projection

    "I don't have to persue my inferior function, look at what it does to the world..."

    INJ (se): "...such a brutal, sensate landscape. why do people settle for animalistic immediacy? I'm not an animal, that's for sure. I'll conceive my own reality, on my own terms."
    ITP (fe): "...people are so easily manipulated and shallow. I can see how things really work, I couldn't possibly play along. Isn't anyone able to think for themselves?"
    IFP (te): "...individuals are so divided and discouraged, for such horrid impersonal reasons. I pay attention to how people feel, and that's more important than anything."
    ISJ (ne): "...such chaos and nonsense, it would all self-destruct if it wasn't for those of us keeping check of things. Do people really want things to fall apart?"

    EFJ (ti): "...cold, hard logic doesn't go anywhere toward helping people. where would we be without each other? why risk breaking that neccessary bond?"
    ETJ (fi) "...people are so unwilling to take charge, too afraid of stepping on someone else's toes just to get something done. I get things done, I have the balls to see how life really works."
    ENP (si) "...immobility never lasts, the earth never sits still. If you just sit in one place, how could you possibly go anywhere?"
    ESP (ni) "...trying to repress your own instincts only serves to heighten them. why are people so frightened of what's right in front of their nose?"

    The inferior function for IFPs is Te and the inferior function for ESPs is Ni.
    If a deaf INFP falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?

    Hah, spot on. Though in the last couple years I've started to move into a more "aspirational" attitude towards Se ("PARTYYYYY").

    Hey, good job on these! This is actually one of the best presentations of the whole inferior issue that I've seen. Thanks.

    P.S.- The Fe one is spot on.

    The amount I think this is absolutely ridiculous.

    I usually don't think this unless it touches on a personal sensitivity. I've never been disgusted by things like eating meat, fast food, caffeinated beverages, people being out to make money, drinking alcohol (after age 21), etc. Sometimes I have this attitude about sexuality, but it's actually an excuse to avoid facing my real reasons for being uncomfortable with it, which are extremely personal and painful.

    My typical attitude towards Se is usually more like indifference or misunderstanding, honestly.

    The closest I come to thinking this is when I see people fighting in public without a good reason. I mean, if there was a good reason, that's one thing, but if they just come to blows over nothing, it seems stupid, barbaric and animal-like. But my real reason for having trouble with that is more along the lines of...

    ISJ (ne): "...such chaos and nonsense, it would all self-destruct if it wasn't for those of us keeping check of things. Do people really want things to fall apart?"
    This. This is actually closer to how I feel most of the time. It's precisely what I've blamed most of my problems on, the fact that I can't predict things well enough to make a reasonable decision. Things are seemingly based on chance occurrences that I don't know how to take advantage of, particularly in the job-seeking market.

    ENP (si) "...immobility never lasts, the earth never sits still. If you just sit in one place, how could you possibly go anywhere?""
    Ironically, the above actually seems to alternate with THIS perspective. I go from feeling comfortable with the above, to feeling trapped, frustrated by the world around me, and taking this perspective quite often. Then I try to change something, and find myself back in the above perspective, etc... it's just a mess.

    Have you considered that you're an INxP of some sort? Alternating between an Si and Ne viewpoint seems to point toward that conclusion.

    I really relate to ENP with my younger self. Very much so. I was TERRIFIED of staying in one place for too long, and the frequency that I've moved and the fact that I've been all over the US (and now to Canada) shows that.

    Thing is, though, I don't really feel that terror like I used to. I think that's actually a good thing...But actually now I relate more to what you've written for INJ and ITP as well.
