Iím new to the entire MBTI theories but am trying to learn. Iíve consistently tested as an INTJ. I=89%, N=90%, T=90%, and J=86%. Seeing as how I have always been rather offbeat, MBTI has given me somewhat of a clearer understanding of myself. Iím particularly interested in how I think through things. Iíve always found my thought process to be slightly different. I have an immense problem articulating my ideas in a way others can understand. I can easily express my ideas in a way I understand, but others cannot. This is something I would really like to improve on.
To start out, Iíll tell you what little I already know so we arenít covering old ground. This is my basic understanding and if any of it is incorrect please do correct me. As I typed what I know, I put any questions I had in red.
Superior: Introverted Intuition
Auxiliary: Extraverted Thinking
Tertiary: Introverted Feeling
Inferior: Extraverted Sensing
Ni is my most preferred function and Se my least. Also, Te is my second preference and Fi my third.
I know shadow types are the opposite of the ďmainĒ functions. Is there a specific name for the main functions? Iíve read what little info online I could find about John Beebeís archetypes. If I understand this correctly, Anima/Animus (Ne) is a bridge between the conscious and unconscious. I couldnít find much info on Witch (Ti), Trickster (Fe), or Daemon (Si) according to Beebe. Could someone explain these relations to my personality and what role they play?
To be broad, I donít have a complete understanding of the shadow type and would like to know what roles they play specifically to INTJs.
Also, what importances do Se and Fi play?
What function do I need to better develop to help convey my ideas correctly?
Thanks for any help!
P.S. I have read about the meanings behind each function. I just don't have I clear or in depth understanding of the roles they play.
