    The tertiary function allows us to feel more complete, more at peace with ourselves...
    Tertiary is often the most decisive function within mature individuals, the most apparent for an outsider.
    So, does that explain my impression that this is what explains the difference between same-type people in their teens and 30+?

    Indeed!

    This is especially true for some types, especially NTs...

    Have realised that it isn't just age: It's that well-adjusted people of their type behave very differently from immature people of the same type.

    Am not sure if it is due to the tertiary function per se, or a moderation of extremes as one grows up and experiences more in life, and/or a 'beefing up' of all the other shadow functions: the 5th to 8th. and not just the 3rd or 4th.
    You gave me hyacinths first a year ago;
    They called me the hyacinth girl.
    Yet when we came back, late, from the Hyacinth garden,
    Your arms full, and your hair wet, I could not
    Speak, and my eyes failed, I was neither
    Living nor dead, and I knew nothing,
    Looking into the heart of light, the silence.

    YouTube - The element song
    Oh my God, it's Tom Lehrer!

    There's antimony arsenic, aluminum, selenium...

    ...

    Anyway, I always consider well adjusted people easier to get along with.

    ^. lol. agreed, Haphazard. Perhaps the focus shouldn't be so much on type, but on surpassing it.

    Type should never be an excuse for lack of character.

    edit: i should like to see someone sing that song in real life, without a lyrics sheet.

    My father does that occasionally. It's one of his favorite songs.

    Did he rub off on you? Seems likely.

    I don't know what you mean. I have not memorized the song, if that's what you're wondering.

    I drew some vague conclusions.
