I read in one thread about ENFPs getting irritated that they "bend" too much and so they snap at some point. Now this made me think "but they flexed in the first place to suit themselves as they dislike disturbing the waters in such a fashion as complaining" ergo it's their fault that they need to "snap back".
Now I've been thinking about how each type is guilty of displacement.. INTPs and their displacing of how awkward they feel being out of touch with many subjects (usually due to them concentrating on what they enjoy and hence being unfamiliar with certain circumstances) and expressing anger at how "stupid" some things are. Or the ENFJ annoyance at other people not doing things "right" but excusing themselves whenever they feel justified.
I'm wondering... is the first step of maturing your type actually not based on studying other types and what they do but seeing the displacement and putting the brakes on it?
The reason is that I find that most mature NTs have stopped calling things "stupid" without good reason, mature NFs no longer jump at people when seemingly "universal" values are crossed. It's not really that say an ENFJ suddenly needs to study logic or some such but more that in looking into why they displace they'll find that it's more about defending their position with the only solid thing they have than actually enforcing their statement, hence it'd become clear that if they took some time to look at what they held dear and reasoned it a little more then their confidence will return and it'll be no longer necessary to beat down people who threaten it with a large tree (though this does not rule out that such may still be fun).
