Can you perhaps think if you hide away from things that's required of your Te by ignoring it? OrÖ acting out against it seems slightly more understandable due to Fi. Do you get busy by attacking your environment during such moments to relieve how you feel? I see it like this for ENTPs, Ti has no way of creating an analysis of whatís being asked of them while Fe absolves its interest of others' so that the ENTP tries to ignore it by becoming busy through Se. ENFPsí Fi has no way of connecting to analyse and do the same of whatís asked of them so Te refuses to cooperate to the demands of othersí and through Se the ENFP busies themselves by attacking the environment around them. Ti pretends to work through Se, Fi pretends to work itself out through Se. Does that seem conceivable?
And well, think about it. When you're not able to rely on (with your Aux) what supports your natural way of orienting within the world (with your Dom), you aren't gathering the necessary information (for your Dom).
JF as in Jack Flak, eh? He has his own thread, necro him there. lol There's nothing wrong with identifying with the other functions but you don't rely on them like you would with the first two. Anyhoo, he had ideas regarding functions and type that didn't jive well with most people.
I'm thinking how to better answer this but has it become a bit more understandable?
Anyone else who cares to take a stab, have at this.
ENFPs' Te is where the fears reacts through because others are not giving them the respect they think is warranted of their feelings (of Fi) -- so they reciprocate against people with Te. Blaze to amaze; Te asserts to overwhelm the other's Fi. "It's not Fi's fault." It never is... But once they refocus Fi, they will become rational and fair again, observing their flawed ideas and correcting them instead of just reacting poorly with Te rejecting the slights (real or imagined).
The only difference b/w them and NPD/BPD is that, I suspect, ENTPs are well aware of what they're doing whilst ENFPs are not. In that, ENTPs know they're manipulating their audience because they mean to while ENFPs aren't aware they're being domineering towards people because they don't mean to. Although, with BPD one can become aware after a time but that doesn't necessarily help but sometimes makes it worse because they'll just keep reaching out instead of reaching within.
You said something interesting here:So would not better development remove the hypersensitivity to perceived slights against their Ji and poor reaction through their Je, hmm?Originally Posted by happy puppy
