I'm often pretty paranoid of ESJ people, I've experienced their qualities often may turn out to be like ''no vision, boring ideas, HUGE EGO and strong control''. I really can't stand the persons who have no greater vision for the future plans or activities, but they're constantly trying to take you under their control. However, they often get really pissed of me too, because i constantly question their authority and ''great'' ideas.
Though I can't say that for all of them, the healthy ones are really nice and what's important- also productive.
i used to have a Te phobia 6 years ago. this cold reductionist categorizing and reductionist prioritizing of evil extj, lol. at that time i also believed in the convenient mbti myth that states, that my type* is not supposed to use Te but Ti. obviously i am healed from that period and now i am a good old "fuck it or kill" it Te user i haven't forgotten my roots (NiFe) though, so i will never be like a real extj (meaning an average/young extj who discriminates other functions for the sake of Te). to be clear: i always used Te at the speed of light, like in fights, but unconsciously and not intellectually.
edit: i know my Se, thank you. its all the red crust in my cellar. its also perception and the fact that interaction occurs, but not it's content. and i have always loved it, when it kicked it. but usually it's not there and so i have to avoid a lot of interaction, because i would be overwhelmed.
i was talking about intuitive access to valid straight edge bullshit detector kind of logic. that kind, that can't be fooled by those PeTi wishful thinking's dishonest fake arguments. conscious Te is different from unconscious automatic Te, since it can be applied to theory, that is to say, whatever one focuses on, even sensitive details. unconscious functions are in autopilot and deal with the major/gross immediate situation.
i am still pretty much paranoid about my Fi, but at least i understand what Fi really is, unlike some people. Fi users annoy me more because of their own shadows (if the shadows are hyperactive), than because of their Fi. i am literally paranoid about my own Fi. what tricks is it pulling? i can't see it. Fe gets in the way.
*(at that time i had diagnosed myself as INFJ, despite test results, which were 50/50 J/P)
to be clear: i always used Te at the speed of light, like in fights, but unconsciously and not intellectually.
Unconscious, instinctive, not intellectually, and comes up in highly stressful situations like fights?
That sounds an awful lot like inferior Se...not Te.
Te is deliberate and methodical. It insists on making decisions and planning expediently so that stuff can get done, but it doesn't make unconscious, light-speed gut responses based purely on the present moment. That's Se's domain.
If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?
