    i mean those just makes zero sense and contradict other stuff which i cant be bothered to explain right now. but feel free to try and give some argument for the claims you made

If MBTI is right more or less, the loop concept meshes with the theory but hasn't yet been validated, it's just a construct meant to explain a behavior.

    Consider looping a "working theory" ... it works theoretically but it's not verified, so it's a placeholder until some better explanation can be offered for these kinds of deviations from expected function preferences in MBTI.
    Spot on.
    Now all we need is a thread: "How many of you have faked a Dom/Tert loop and why did you do it? Just thinking about all the crazy threads right now.

    In MBTI theory I'd fall into the Dom/Tert loop category as an INFJ who has typically used Ti more strongly than Fe. I know other INFJs who seem to do the same, although I'm not sure it is an example of being unhealthy. It has always seemed perfectly sensible to me. I'm not always perfectly healthy emotionally, but I wouldn't equate my own issues with being in a Dom/Tert loop.

An introvert under certain conditions will withdraw from the world and into themselves even more; a situation which causes them to bypass the extroverted auxiliary functions - after all, introversion is their natural state of being. The opposite is true for extroverts, bypassing their introverted auxiliary, for the same reasons. They would probably be too objective and avoid the inner turmoil that's going on inside them. That last statement should be clarified because I'm not as sure on it. But for introverts it definitely makes sense why they would go into a tertiary loop. For healthy being, a balance of intro- and extroversion is needed, and it makes sense that someone who isn't wouldn't have this balance. That is my take on it anyway.



    Tut-tut, that shameless advertising there!
    I agree, this is how I see the loops.

    these are responses to different forms of stress, and we are shaped into a given order based on the stresses we are most sensitive too.

    but sometimes life deals you milk even if you're lactose intolerant - certain events, internal accumulation over time, or any combination thereof, will force you to deal hands down with the sort of stresses you are less equipped to deal with.

    so if you are an ENTP and you get overwhelmed by emotional dissonance, you're Ti is no longer the tool for the job, so you'll utilize an NeFe loop.
    if an INTP feels extremely confused and overwhelmed, paying attention to Ne is just going to make things worst, so the Ti will start paying attention to Si for coherence. etc...
    I can relate to the INTP example. I claim to have strong Si but I wonder if its due to the dom-tert loop. Too much Si for too long will just stress me out.

    i dont think you are in some "loop", but i do think you are most likely an ISTP and tend to value your introvert side(TiNi) more than TiSe. but i wouldnt wonder if you were an Ni dom

    Okay, thanks INTP for your input on me probably being a TiNi, and I decided to accept it; but I'm confused about whether at the end you called Ni-dom a real possibility or if you meant it's not possible, but I guess that doesn't matter too much, since the likely answer must be the right one.

    I'm actually a very introverted person, and tend to withdraw from the outside world in reflection and synthesize information together into new visions for the world; that seems to fit the functions of Ti and Ni quite well. My Se is ok actually too, since I place lots of emphasis on spontaneous action and connecting with the present context.

    edit - Well sorry, it looks like I changed my mind (for like the 1 millionth time), so ya...
