    Default what do you guys think of the theory of shadow functions coming foward during stress?

    what do you guys think of the theory of shadow functions emerging during stress quote''Later personality researchers (notably Linda V. Berens)[19] added four additional functions to the descending hierarchy, the so-called "shadow" functions to which the individual is not naturally inclined but which can emerge when the person is under stress''for the

    Te- Empirical thinking is at the core of extroverted Thinking when we challenge someone's ideas based on the logic of the facts in front of us or lay out reasonable explanations for decisions or conclusions made, often trying to establish order in someone else's thought process.

    I don't like religion all that much and I justified arguments based on facts.

    Ni- I judge people in according to how a situation plays out. I like using Ni because it gives me new perspective.

    Se- I use in a mocking manner.

    Fi- Comes out when I cry. I feel horrible.

    @Ene, @OrangeAppled, @fidelia,

    Apparently you ladies won that Relationship Pairings Thread contest, and among the prizes mentioned, was the book

    'Was That Really Me?: How Everyday Stress Brings Out Our Hidden Personality'.

    If any of you have actually chosen (and then, I hope, gone ahead and *finished reading*) that book, perhaps
    you'd like to share your newfound knowledge with us on this thread?

    I havent read the book, but i do know that this book talks about real MBTI, not this socionics type 8 function bullcrap. Here someone posted the INFJ chapter if you care to see what the shadow of a type really is and how it relates to stress(hint. it has nothing to do with these so called shadow functions); [INFJ] “Was That Really Me?” – How Stress Brings Out the INFJ's Hidden Personality

    The book is fantastic; it doesn't talk about shadow functions, though.

    Rather it discusses, how that when a person is under stress (especially prolonged stress) their tertiary and inferior functions may cause them to act out of character.

    For example, an Ni dominant may become obsessed about some physical detail while an IS-J may be unable to perform in their usual orderly manner, etc. It discusses how stress can cause our inferior functions can make us appear like a poor example of our functions in reverse order. So, an INFJ starts to act like a poor example of an ESTP, etc.

    Ahhh, so I misread, and/or confused "tertiary" and "inferior" as being the same as "shadow."

    No! *Bad* INTJ! /lashes self with wet noodle>

    Now, now, no sense lashing yourself with wet noodles. (Se, behave yourself) We wouldn't want to waste food. Rather, let's just cook the noodles and make spaghetti!
