    There's aonther thing I wonder, do Fe and Te frameworks have to be on a vertical plane, i.e. has there to be a vertical hierarchy between people in terms of their perceived Fe or Te value...? Do Fe and Te-dom feel compelled to measuring themselves (their worth\status) against others?

    My understanding of Fe (aux) strives and desires for a framework that is organized more on a lateral\parallel plane...where people could exist more or less with same Fe value...

    Is this the same for Te (aux)...? How about for Te-dom?

    Edit: Is Te\Fe-dom geared more towards Empire\Nation building?

    Do you need them to admire you all the time though, give you positive Te feedback, like acknowledging your worth as a useful\valuable person in terms of capacity to envision and do things?
    I don't care if people admire me.

    I can take em or leave em. If people don't like me it doesn't bother me.

    The only time conflict or lack of admiration, bothers me, is when I am close to that person.

    Ideally I would like positive feedback from everyone. But my worth no longer comes from that. It only did when I was younger and it was with my parents/bosses/teacher (authority.)

    I'm that person that embodies pretty much everything that you hate. Might as well get used to it.

    I would expect Te-dom to be more dependent on (making sure of) such feedback... What you describes sound like Te-aux countered by Fi-tert developed around late 20s?

    Well I don't have the patience for that. Getting people to like me can be tedious. I am definitely an extravert though. I just have to click with them first. I'm not willing to go through the motions anymore.

    That points to internally defined self-worth...i.e. internal judging functions...I am trying to do that myself as well...My self-worth started to become more dependent on internal factors around 30...it's still vulnerable to external feedback though...

    My friend feels compelled to keep checking his T standing\worth against other people around...the problem with that is that he becomes condescending in the process... by establishing publicly the fact that he's the better cog, he's at the same time giving the other the message that the other is the worse cog... so there's some kind of public devaluation going on...

    There has to be another way for doing this without devaluing the others...

    Sometimes I take time to put together my insights into a comprehensive form in writing and send it to him... But he appears to not be affected by them...as if he doesn't change his views..

    Do you think he might be recognizing them by himself but not telling me? Sometimes I feel that he's not giving me enough due credit (not externally but internally)...

    And he also sometimes goes into this some kind of "energy hunting" mode where he becomes lively\chatty and somehow feeds on the attention he gets from others...it feels as if it has some kind of ritualistic importance to him cause he acts irritated if he's disrupted at those times... does that sound familiar to you?

    There's another mode of his that he verbally challenges\taunts people around him to challenge him or somehow remain silent to acknowledge his superiority...it feels as if he's feeding on that... Are they Te-checks?

    The thing is that in doing that it feels to me as if he is somehow forcing\blackmailing people into showing him admiration cause if he doesn't get it, he either withdraws himself and his skills for a while (to punish them?) or tries to make those people feel bad somehow... so he's trying to strongarm them to show him admiration... That's how it looks to me... I think he does these when he's insecure or somehow low in energy so as to feel good\powerful again...

    One day he said that a manager would never be happy with one of his subordinates being smarter\more skillful than himself\herself... and added that luckily he didn't have any reason to be unhappy...among his coworkers!

    All these feel like some kind of a reflex to me...

    I just want to have you guys opinions on all these, if you will...
    Well, the behavior of your friend sounds slightly overblown. I believe I went through a phase like that when I was 20-21, now I've mellowed out a lot. Even though, I still believe that being more aggressive may lead to better life outcomes, at least until you're somewhat young-ish.

    Thanks... Do I sound probing and judgmental...? How do I come across?

    And, what enabled you to mellow-out? What did you notice?
