    Default Do enfps have a Te complex ?

    Do they ? They talk about it in every second thread, moreso than ever about their Fi. While in comparison the likelyhood of an entp talking about his / her dick is higher than talking about Fe.

    Is there a correlation ? Why this obsession, do you like to be dominated or love pain in relationships ? What is the key I am missing here and how late is it ?

    How do you think they catch INTJs? Using a Te net of course!

    ENFP: I have this vague notion of something but a really clear directive. What to do?
    INTJ: Here you go problem solved, aspiration achieved.
    ENFP: <3 Marry me
    INTJ: Yes milady, continue to provide input.

    A Te dom looking for a Te net to be catched ? That sounds unhealthy in my book. isnt a relationship more about fulfillment that the one part does fulfill the other ?

    Damnit now you made me answer my own question, I wanted to spare that for later

    You're argument would seem to be that opposition is better than commonality simply because it 'fills the blanks'. I might postulate that relationships are intended to maximise synergy. Enough difference to create benefit but enough similarity to understand the value in one another?

    i imagine we talk about it more in general because it's interesting, a mystery to us. as Ne-Fi we're kind of curious floaty compassionate things but then along comes the direct, commanding Te, which seems like an anomaly. sometimes i feel like Fi and Te are almost completely oppositional. individual-wise, it can come in a lot of different flavors/feels, and it can really change how we process and behave... some ENFPs don't really use much at all, while some use so much they're not sure they are ENFP for a long time.

    me personally, it helps me navigate the practical world a lot. i cringe at the idea of not having it. i like my logical side... that i can take an argument and shoot holes in it, that i can organize, that i can mobilize, etc. it's also nice to not always have to FEEEEL DEEEPLY a la Fi, and just get shit taken care of. i don't know if Fe feels that way for ENTPs - it seems more like you guys could take it or leave it. like it's convenient but not super important. whereas i would really not want to lose the Te. it'd be like this post, sans logical organization. dear god.

    as for relationships... i like someone who can take my yelling and storming when i'm upset and just shut it down completely. INTJs can do this, i know. with Fe it feels like i'm walking on glass sometimes... like i can't just have the freedom to be angry without hurting others - because even though Fi is all about me, Fe is all about "you". Fe users seem to frequently think that when i'm upset, it's about them, when it basically never is. whereas with a Te user they can usually just see that i'm extraverting personal upset, and correspondingly tell me to calm the fuck down, which is exactly what i need. not that everyone is like that, of course.

    i suppose i like to be dominated in the sense that i like someone who can look my storm in the face and not get thrown off by it. i like having the security of someone who can handle me at my worst, essentially. that's incredibly attractive to me. i don't like anyone that i can sway too easily... you know how it is, to be a Ne dom. how people tend to believe the shit you talk about even though you don't really have any intention of convincing anyone but yourself while you're theorizing. how people tend to just go along with you. i like someone who can stand up to that, someone i actually have to work to convince. i don't know how much that has to do with Te specifically, though.

    as for pain... sure, some friendly pain is good.

    I'd be useless without it. It's what makes me a worthwhile being.

    fullfilment goes in german more in the direction of meaning which is synergy, it doesnt mean to fill the blanks. I wasnt thinking of the superhuman pair who is good in all functions in the end.

    There was a topic once when we said that because Fe in an entp is the only real extroverted function in the line of functions from top to bottom, they'd act out of it most of the times. I dont necessarily think that's wrong but if it was true there is definitly a lesson to be learned in that case, which is neglecting the second function in ones own understanding and reflection of self can lead to problems.

    See, and I'm afraid of mine *prods Te in its cage*

    *throws cage down an oubliette*
    And that, as they say, is that.

    I'll stick with refining Fi as much as possible, thank you very much

    do we discuss te that much? i don't see it being discussed more than ne or fi at all and i see entps using fe just as often as we use te... i guess i don't understand the point of your thread. :/
