The Jungmeister sez:
The essence of the inferior function is autonomy. It is independent, it attacks, it fascinates, and so spins us about that we are no longer masters of ourselves and can no longer rightly distinguish between ourselves and others.
The unconscious has an inimical or ruthless bearing towards consciousness only when the latter adopts a false or pretentious attitude.
And Lenore sez:
The Inferior Function pressures you to take a different interpretation of certain signs than you are used to. However, this can lead you to become Semiotically Disoriented. Suddenly your inferior function confronts you with strange goals (due to different interpretations of signs), but your dominant function offers you no way to relate to them, let alone meet them. In fact, your dominant function will deny that these goals are even valid in the first place. It would love to sweep them under the carpet, and the Tertiary Temptation offers an excuse to do so. However, the secondary function may offer a way of interpreting signs that allows the dominant function to properly orient itself in relation to the goals of the inferior function.
Thus, therefore, and willing I conclude, as should all good people, that ENFJs are least thoughtful when they are least engaged in investigating "What would happen if...."
When they are unwilling to truly reflect, "Is there really only one way to do this?"
Not endlessly to so reflect though, of course. That would to some degree be equally thoughtless. No, to reflect just the right amount. It's up to them how much.
But anyway by the time they're, like, twelve years old, pretty much every person has started using their auxiliary function at least a little, right? So the word "thoughtful" has a pretty broad sweep. But I have no idea which whole type is more likely to fall prey to tertiary temptation most often and thus be, possibly, the least thoughtful of types.
