    Default What happens when the inferior first kicks in at a young age?

    At a very young age, maybe in the early teens, someone's inferior probably kicks in and kicks them in the ass. Their rose colored classes come off, and realize their inferior even slightly. And it changes their perspective a lot. Only when the person has developed their auxillary will it balance out.

    How do you think this manifests itself in the types?

    ENTPs probably get really freaked out at how weird they are compared to the rest of society and diagnose themselves with some kind of off-the-wall personality disorder.

    INTPs probably freak out about the fact that they don't really get along with anybody and start desperately seeking friendly relations.

    ISTJs probably realize how normal their lives are and desperately research how to become less mainstream. Or they sign up for an art class.

    ISFJs realize how normal their lives are and desperately try to make friends with the misfits. Or they start going to Drama Club.

    I don't really want to keep pulling stuff out of my ass for the rest of the types. I'm kind of making this up as I go along, but maybe I'll come back to it later.

    Those are really good tesla. I'm mostly curious because I got this idea with a friend, but I can't really think of any at the moment.

    E_FJ- May feel "stupid" and try as hard as they can to achieve academically.

    When my Fi started really kicking in (at around age 11-13), it was a huge shift. I think my dad even noticed it and thought I was having some problems. I guess it all kicked off when I had my first real crush which lasted a very long time. It brought a lot of heart ache, nothing serious in retrospect, but it was definitely a hard time in my life emotionally.

    Great thread.
    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?

    I would go on, but I think they will start getting redundant.

    I'd say that if one's inferior function kicks in at a young age, and this on-button causes one to realize that the inferior function should be developed (to "gain balance"), then one will use their secondary function to try and reconcile the inferior with the dominant. I doubt they'd revert to using the dominant function to solve the internal "problem", as the dominant function opposes the inferior function that they are wanting to realize.

    INTP notices that he isn't friendly/polite enough, so he starts using his Ne to be witty and attract new friends. It's probably not a smooth process though; those kinds of epiphanies can be a bit disconcerting for people, I'm sure. I guess the more the dominant function overpowers the rest of the functions, the harder the process will be.

    This is all highly theoretical though.

    I really like this. I think when I first realized that people didn't respond to Te so well I started using Ni to "point out the potential flaws in something" rather than flat out telling them it wasn't going to work out and had to be done differently.

    Or ENFJ will use her Ni to contemplate the meaning of intelligence and just decide that it's all arbitrary anyway, ultimately arriving at a contented sense of self-validation.

    And ESFJ will start memorizing lots of things to convince herself that she's intelligent. She'll do this with study-buddies though, of course.

    This is all so interesting because it all seems to make sense.

    ISFP would probably realize how un objective that they were and try to make up for this by being in touch with reality.

    ESTP probably realizes that there is a purpose to things, and that there are other implications besides what's on the surface, so they strive to get more intelligent to make up for this.

    I think this may have happened to me too. I was this really boisterous, singing in public, dancing on coffee tables, forcing my friends to follow my "choreographed" plays, obnoxiously insensitive to some people, motor-mouth as a child...then all of a sudden as a teenager I became this gothic, grungey, emo chick who actually thought I was a communist in the 11th grade :rolli: (there were serious external triggers for this which I do not wish to discuss at this time) but I remember being about 15 and my grandfather's wife just being like "what the hell happened to you?"
