    That's fine! Good or bad, doesn't matter

    Perhaps the question should be:

    If I were X Tertiary, and I was attracted to Y Primary, is it because of mutual Y-function? For example, are ENFPs, IF ATTRACTED to ESTJs and ENTJs, attracted to Te? Is that the draw?

    Are INTPs consistently drawn toward ISxJs for the reasons of bolstering Si?

    Are ISTPs, like INTJMom's husband, initially awakened to their love interests by the use of Ni in said subjects if they are attracted to Ni users in the first place?

    I'd also like to posit that most people use their third function as a way out of trouble before the agent of chaos (inferior function) kicks in, usually to bad results (esp if you're stressed and not accessing your inferior function purposefully in a guided manner). I see the Tertiary function as being very powerful, transformative even, though it comes in so belated.

    It's certainly an interesting theory.

    Maybe it's primary attracted to the inferior rather than the tertiary??

    Off topic
    I was gonna say four-tiary
    Is there a word for that like - primary, secondary, tertiary etc.

    Although I find dominant Fe endearing (and important) in an objective way, it also makes me want to pull back. It feels like a bunch of stuff coming at me.

    It might be the fact that we are apt to wholly discount out inferior function, but our tertiary function we have enough aptitude for that we can admire someone in whom it is well-developed. Something you're not great at, but able to appreciate. So in the mutual pairs, each has a strength that the other admires.

    I'm attracted to Ne, and I don't consciously use it, so obviously the theory (if you can even call it that) is deeply flawed. Or weird. Or warping space time.

    That sounds very plausible.

    That's it. I can admire the quality, but I don't prefer to interact directly with someone who has it. To put it another way: I would hire an ExFJ, but anything personal would make me reluctant.


    That doesn't mean I don't like them. It's often the opposite. It's just that it can seem like too much for me.

    If I may be allowed to toot my own horn, this might illuminate (pardon me, I just watched Angels and Demons) Si a little better.
