I hope you don't mind but i have a question as i'm currently reading naomi quenk's book called " Was that really me?".
Have any of you read this book? Did you feel it was helpful in
figuring out your inferior?
Can you share with me how you experience your Inferior function?
When under stress?
How do you know when it's being triggered?
Maybe could any of you help me understand
if you might have thought you were INFP
what distinguishes Inferior Fe from Inferior Te?
I'm hoping for this to be a clarity giving thread that will provide
insight into a very hard to define part of MBTI for me and probably
others. Some concrete examples would be great too if possible .
Alittle ditty on why i'm asking is just cause my T-F is apparently very balanced. Almost too balanced and i can relate to the objectivity of the INTP in relationships/life sorta.
Just having the hardest time figuring out if I use Te inferior or Fe inferior.
I could see both. I just relooked over her book and have been thinking about the loss of my father due to cancer when i was 17. And also about the process i had to go through to get through it and the pain i was feeling.
I just remembered saying before i plunged into emotional waters
"this will be good for me" "the way out is through so..." *naturally i came to the conclusion i needed to go through and work through all the pain i was feeling cause realized if i didn't i wouldn't heal.
"it's only going to make it worse if don't deal with this now"
It took me three-four years after reexamining myself and my life, where i was headed, to get to complete healing *or reached acceptance at least*. I wouldn't be able to sleep, had major anxiety *curled up on my bed, scared to be alone at night as that's when all the memories came back or thought's would wonder. Sadness would become evident etc. Which lead to the conclusion mentioned above
"this won't stop if i don't face it and i want it to stop"
Well that's the gist of it, I won't keep babbling i just wanted to give some background as that i think might be what tips the scales for me.
So INTPs if you don't mind me asking I'm curious how you experience you Inferior Function Fe. Especially if you went through a real hard grieving stage from losing someone and had to reevaluate your life etc. if so did you develop Fi from it? *the grieving*
Thanks in advance. It's appreiciated very much .
