    Default How to strengthen core functions/ Avoid shadow functions

    In the video below, it is suggested that we avoid working on our shadow functions and that we should instead focus on strengthening our top two functions.

    On that note, how can each type go about strengthening their top two functions. How could an INTJ better strengthen their own Ni/Te, or an ISFP their Fi/Se, and so forth?

    Also: should we or should we not work on our tertiary and inferior functions?

    I think we should develop our theory of mind, which means seeing things from others' perspectives. With enough practice, you can even start to think and feel and be like them. Then, depending on the situation, you can choose which style of personality to express. Why not?
