Okay, so how about we leave the word “tertiary” out of it.
None of the functions, in and of themselves, are ‘negative’ or ‘positive’ per se. But negative or positive consequences can result from the way we use them. When I wrote “using the tertiary is negative when it’s preferred over the auxiliary, because then E/I isn’t balanced”, I meant to imply there’s something detrimental about using two leading functions that are either both Introverted or both Extraverted.
I still say: This ^ is exactly why there’s a pull. Being N dom can be like having the proverbial carrot constantly dangling just out of reach. Sometimes Ne pulls outward, and sometimes Ni pulls inward.From an Ne perspective, life is a succession of opportunities to pounce on, each opportunity opening up more that you can't yet see.
For Ne doms, perceiving a lot of external possibilities can pull them outwards- closer to those possibilities- and they might use Extroverted Judgment to reach them. For Ni doms, perceiving a lot of internal possibilities can pull them inwards- closer to those possibilities- and they might use Introverted Judgment to reach them.
Babylon: I don’t know if you’re trying to argue that this doesn’t happen or if you just don’t like that specific terms I used in trying to describe it. But I know the N dom pull towards a Judging function with the same polarity *does* happen, and it *does* have some negative consequences. I'm just trying to find out if the ENPs feel it as much as the INJs seem to (and anyone's thoughts about how it effects the ENP/INJ relationship).
edit: in case ^ it wasn't clear, yeah, I think it's kinda along the same lines.
