    Default Forum Group Dynamics

    Example 1: The Nth Divide - Fi-Te vs. Fe-Ti

    Does anyone else feel an undercurrent of grouping in this forum, centered around discussions, where it seems that the xNTPs and XNFJs seem like one group facing off against the opposition group made up of, xNFPs and xNTJs?

    If so, and it's due to the Fi/Te facing Fe/Ti.........how do we bridge this divide? Why is it so?


    (not that it needs to be said....but, obviously I'm not saying this is relevant for everyone of the above given types)

    Edit: I think, as per the first few responses to this thread, it should be open to not just the above supposed dynamic, but, any other perceived type category dynamics on this forum. Discuss.

    I do not feel the existence of the grouping as described in the OP.
    If a deaf INFP falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?

    Hmm. I haven't felt a face-off kinda thing, but I do relate more naturally to NTPs and NFJs than NFPs and NTJs. There are major notable exceptions, of course. Fi is, as a rule, kind of hard for me to naturally relate to.

    I also do not sense the existence of this dynamic on the forum. However, I frequently mostly the Enneagram, NF, and Bonfire sub-forums.

    Yeah, it's there. I credit it to speaking a different language and being more or less satisfied when others do or don't do the same. It's not necessarily about facing off against the other team, though it can get to be like that sometimes.

    Have you noticed too, that Ne doms can hang together moderately well, as can Ni doms, sometimes?

    Similar cognitive languages, I guess.

    I like a man who wants to back up claims....

    I guess, the most obvious times I've seen this is when a dear function is put under scrutiny. Of the most prolific.........discussions about Fi.

    The xNTPs and xNFJs (to be honest, ENTP and INFJ mostly) taking on the xNFPs (a few xNTJs chime in but mostly to ask about Fi themselves ..I kid).

    Hmmm... I see a divide in the sexuality topics. Those who call themselves "open-minded" who feel free to attack or take to task those with more moderate views. And vice versa. I don't think that splits across Fi/Te and Fe/Ti lines though, more NPs and certain NJs vs everyone else.

    I think it's easier for Ni doms to hang together compared to Ne doms. Ne does crazy stuff to other functions, like yawning the gap between Fi and Ti so far that it makes the Atlantic Ocean look like a kiddie pool. It also may have to do with the fact that Ne-doms are extraverts so they rise to 'conflict' faster versus Ni-doms, those shy, shy INJs. And of course, gender is a huge mediator of these interactions.

    (again, general trend, not all cases...as I have a dear friend on this forum, one of my most fave members, who's an ENFP).
