    Default The What Fuction Is ___ an Example of Thread

    For those everyday occurrences of behavior in yourself or others that perplex you and you want to know "What function is this an example of?" Ask a question to the forum and have them answer what function a behavior or perspective is, or an experience you have.

    To get the ball rolling...

    What function(s) are in play when something at the last minute comes up, and the world feels scattered and out of control, and if someone gets in your way of getting things done, or ends up making demands, you end up getting irritable, grouchy, and just want to be left alone to focus on getting the job done?

    Everyone can get this way, no? Not sure if it can be attributed to a function, but if I had to guess.. Si or Ni, maybe.

    What is the nag function, the one who repeats the same inane instructions to you over and over as if you're an imbecile?
    I got my smile from the sunshine,
    I got my tears from the rain.
    I learned to dance when I saw a tiger prance,
    And a peacock taught me to be vain.
    A little owl in a tree so high,
    He taught me how to wink my eye.
    I learned to bill and coo from a turtledove,
    And a grizzly bear taught me how to hug.
    But the guy that lived two caves from me,
    He taught me how to love.

    Planning ahead is usually an expression of introverted percieving (either, potentially, depending upon how you go about it). Wanting to get on with the job at hand is an expression of extroverted judgement (again, could be either).
    Don't make whine out of sour grapes.

    Si. Probably usually Si/Te or Si/Fe in instructive mode, and Te or Fe with Si pending on what the inane instructions are directing you to do and what they concern (i.e. Si/Fe be more polite...I told you not to eat with that fork! Cross your legs. Sit up straight, et al. Si/Te this is the correct procedure. We bag the groceries this way. Heavy items on the bottom and light items on top *proceeds to bug you about this even after you've got the hang of it, just in case you forget, to push you along, like some kind of corporate drill sergeant*).

    Si/Ti or Ti/Si loops can be hellishly nit-picky and overprecise, also, and often comes across as crazy pointless nagging (to me).

    Nagging is the result of introverted perceiving + extroverted judging. The judging function is usually Fe but Te-Si has its own bulldog tenacity. Ni and Fe might nag but they learn pretty quickly that there are more creative forms of social manipulation. Si-Fe users tend to favor passive/aggressive tactics (nagging, silent treatment, parental martyrdom).

    In such cases for me, it's usually planning ahead for the future, and making sure all the steps are accomplished to get to a desired outcome in the end. When something last minute comes up that demands immediate attention, and it's a mad dash to get it done within a small time constraint, is quite frustrating especially when I want to take my time to get things done and make sure steps are completed accurately/correctly. This is especially true when it's something important that could determine the course of my future, be it relationships with others or employment.
