I've been thinking slightly about the idea of the introverted function moving along a scale towards the extraverted counterpart.
Going with this would allow me to assume each person may bear a point on the scale in which the function fluctuates in one's mind state depending on whatever variables it depends on.
With such, the functions could also fluctuate on a scale with:
Therefore allowing one to be able to graph the changes within each set function as well being able to have a middle standard between the types.
Though back to the common thought of 'going extraverted' or 'going introverted'.
It is often assumed the, for example, TiNe users will seem more 'ENTP' if they are to become more 'extraverted', as they will adhere more to their second function. Such could be said about the other types also. However, the thought brought up here now would be more towards:
Would a TiNe who extraverts themselves move towards a TeNi state due to difference in variables and a second mind state?
The initial thought would adhere to people of a natural mindset as it would be their functions used. TiNe; sure, Ne is there, it's used as a parcel though still in it's general order. The TiNe mindset as a whole rather than the 'Ok im Ti. I'll be using Ne when I feel more extraverted'. It's like more Ne is squeezed out once in a mindset of 'being extraverted'.
So, I'd like to here other's thoughts upon the 'Ti---o---Te' scale when they become more 'extraverted' or any other functions of course.
Do you think the scale exists? Possible?
