    Default Your Dominant Function Is Just A Disguise

    Why do you hide behind your dominant function? What are you hiding from?

    Fear of lack of meaning and significance to existence. I openly acknowledge that fear and know there is no real evidence to argue against it but I choose to fight it anyway.

    Fear of being useless, fear of being rejected if I'm not competent and knowledgeable.. because I'm most certainly useless when it comes to seeking acceptance/liking by virtue of my personality.
    Even if I'm not unlikeable, there are so many people (the majority I'd say) that are more likeable than me, and that's all that matters when it's time to choose who gets voted off the island.

    Fi:

    Fear of nihilism and lack of meaning and purpose.

    You see this fear in a lot of the writing of the late David Foster Wallace, who I suspect was an Fi-Dom, himself. He couldn't handle it and he ended up killing himself.

    Ti...I don't like people to see my flaws or weaknesses - I'm a perfectionist. Unusual for entp 7w6, but we're all unusual in our own way.


    Taking a concept to it's logical end is rarely logical or relevant to the subject at hand.

    Fear of becoming obsolete; fear of no longer finding pleasure in new knowledge and experiences.

    I don't. When I feel the need to hide, I use Te - far more effective. I hide from suspected drains on my resources that I would prefer not to confront at the moment, or perhaps at all.
    I've been called a criminal, a terrorist, and a threat to the known universe. But everything you were told is a lie. The truth is, they've taken our freedom, our home, and our future. The time has come for all humanity to take a stand...
