    Default Dynamics and Statics

    Dynamics: see what is changing, how things interact, how things are affecting each other or an outcome, how something is working or operating when running.

    Dynamics focus their attention on the world of movement -- they see change and how change effects the state of things. To dynamics, the world is a fluid place where information and people constantly move about influencing situations and outcomes to anything imaginable. Everything produces a field of effect that interacts with every other thing in its environment.

    There are two kinds of Dynamics: The Extroverted Rationals, and the Introverted Irrationals.

    The Extroverted Rationals focus their attention on the world of movement just as any dynamic type, but their perception is short-lasted. They sort of glance at what is happening or how the system is running, and immediately delve into influencing it themselves. They fight their way into the system in order to mold it into what they wish or whatever suffices. It doesn't really matter how the system is running right now, because the Extroverted Rational is going to be the one changing the system into something else that works better, unless, of course, they still need to understand the dynamics of the system.

    The Introverted Irrationals focus their attention on the world of movement just as any dynamic type, but their actions are short-lasted. They are wholly perceiving what is happening or how the system is running at all times, watching its movement as if to learn something from it. They step aside and watch the show, all of the systems and people interacting with one another and creating their own plots and sub-plots that influence every little action and reaction. It doesn't really matter enough to them to actually step in and influence the system or affect it in some way, because the Introverted Irrational is going to be the one understanding how the system is operating right now, unless of course, action must be inevitably taken to secure the end-goal of the system or the security of the system.

    Statics: see the features of a system or object, the characteristics, the organization of objects, the potential of objects

    Statics focus their attention on the world's characteristics and features -- they see potential, traits, uniqueness and typicality, etc. To statics, the world is a relatively unchanging place where anyone is free to comment or judge the objects and people in it, or actualize the potential of things. Everything has at least one quality that can be understood and classified in some fashion.

    There are two kinds of Statics: The Extroverted Irrationals, and the Introverted Rationals.

    The Extroverted Irrationals focus their attention on the features of their environment just as any static type, but their idea of stability is short-lasted, as it is relatively boring and restrictive of potential. Thus, Extroverted Irrationals seek to empower the environment around them, to actualize the potential and create. They see establishments of order and seek to change them or rip them apart in order to allow for a bit more creativity or liveliness to the environment. It doesn't really matter how things are organized and classified to Extroverted Irrationals, all that matters is that things are reaching their full potential, their full ability, their full energy, unless, of course, to achieve this goal they must understand and make sense of qualities and potential by categorizing it.

    The Introverted Rationals focus their attention on the features of their environment just as any static type, but their idea of potential is short-lasted, as it is relatively chaotic and uncontrollable and thus might ruin the current organization of things. Thus, Introverted Rationals seek to minimize uncontrollable and unpredictable variables in the environment so as to establish some sort of stability or sanity and ensure its security. They see the chaos happening around them and strive to understand it and classify it, to make it defined and stable, easily understandable. It doesn't really matter how things are achieving their true potential or full energy to Introverted Rationals, all that matters is that things are clearly defined and easily understood, unless, of course, to achieve this goal they must create some unpredictability or must make something achieve a certain level of potential.

    Some common dichotomic qualities observed by Statics:

    • Predictability - Unpredictability
    • Unorganized - Organized
    • Weak - Powerful (in stature, not in effect, in effect would be Dynamic)
    • Lifeless - Energetic (careful with this one, too)
    • Boring - Interesting (from Ep view)
    • Orderly - Chaotic (from Ij view)
    • Bad - Good (Introverted Ethics)
    • Right - Wrong (Introverted Judgement)
    • True - False (Introverted Logic)
    • and many more.


    Some common dichotomic effects observed by Dynamics:

    • Weak - Powerful (in effect, not in stature, in stature would be Static)
    • Inactive - Active
    • Sedentary - Mobilized
    • Rigid - Malleable (in an influencing way, as a feature, this would be static) (also Ej perspective)
    • Unpleasant - Pleasant (Introverted Sensation)
    • Meaningless - Purposeful (Ip referring to Ej actions)
    • Unimportant - Important (Introverted Intuition)
    • and many more.

    Did you write this? If so, you did a good job of nailing down some good dichotomies.
