    Default Teach us how to use your two top functions!

    So I was thinking it would be cool if everyone spent a couple seconds to write some ways on how to use your dominant functions so that others can ponder their usage.

    If at all possible, try to walk the person through using the function.

    I'll start:

    Extroverted sensing exercises:
    -Get a piece of paper and write down everything around you that appeals to the 5 senses that actually exists. These must be sensory facts that everyone else can agree on: The room is dark. The air is rushing through the room. The walls are white. The carpet is a rough texture. There is a noise of crickets outside. etc. None of these should be about how they make you feel.
    -When standing in front of company, imagine putting you hand on their shoulder and pushing them as hard as you can. Will they fall over? will they push back? What will their physical reaction be?
    -Think about ice cream and how it tastes. Do not stop thinking about the taste of ice cream until it is in your mouth. Make orgasmic noises upon consumption. Mission accomplished.
    -Imagine the tissue box across the room hurling to the opposite side of the room. Do not stop thinking about this kinesthetic energy until it has come true.

    Introverted thinking exercises:
    -Think about the person closest to you. Ask yourself the following questions: "How can I make him laugh?" "How can I make him cry?" Make a plan in your mind as to how you will go about this. See every step in your mind.
    -Create a flow chart of "if/then" responses someone else will give and what you will do in each situation, IE:
    -step 1: poke jim. If jim looks at you, poke him again. If he does not look at you, poke harder.
    -step 2: if jim punches you in the face for poking him, spit in his eye. If he does not punch you, continue poking repeatedly. If jim does not look at you and does nothing, begin poking his cheek while making fart noises. If he continues to not respond, start singing and using his head as a bongo. Memorize and record his reactions for future use.

    Ti usage in this thread: I am converting everyone's natural human selfishness to look important into a self sufficient teaching method that fuels itself. Everyone is motivated to post because they want to be heard and recognized. Even those with minimal knowledge on functions are capable of contributing something unique or important in its own right.

    Se advice is good, but your version of Ti looks almost Te.

    Do what you are supposed to do but with some king of creative fantasy:

    I'll think about it. In the interim, I'd just like to say that your first two functions are probably going to be so overbearing that the metacognition necessary to effectively educate about them will be a challenge.

    I agree. Thinking about how to tell someone how to use Fi...it's so instinctual for me I don't know how to explain it.

    I think Fi is quite simple...just be yourself.

    hah, i love this.

    yeah it's Ne that's harder for me to explain. Fi seems really straightforward to me. just think about how you feel about things, and act accordingly. no funny business.
    You hem me in -- behind and before;
    you have laid your hand upon me.
    Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.

    I think it's hard for an Ne user to explain Ne, because you see too many possibilities how to explain the function, that sees too many possibilities

    But that cliche has been thrown around people since they started school. At least in the schools I went to.

    And then you meet fuckers like @Vetani who are too Fi-polr to figure out how they feel.
