    Because that is when u are not open to outside data points, but are focused in getting the other to see through your lense. Someone who holds that thought wants group mentality...u think like i think...they ignore Se for the sake of internal points.

    As an ESTP, with Se/Fe, it's not surprising that your personal lens is external. As an ENTJ, my functions attempt to balance both.

    Yes, your Te function attempts to balance all others. An ESTP uses Se as an attempt to balance all others. I was more speaking to Ni, Si dom where there internal perception attempts to balance hence its not natural to take into account alot of external data points through Se or Ne and it tends to overwhelm.

    But I do have to toss the question back to you. How does anyone know that their "conclusions" or "judgments" are accurate and trustworthy, regardless of functions utilised, especially considering how a substantial component of empathy is a projection of our internal lenses?
    Well, I think we each develop confidence in how we judge the world, by spending our entire lives using that worldview and recognizing the most common errors it gives rise to. Every single day, this dominant worldview is feeding us perceptions and decisions that we mull over and process. All of this practice makes us very, very good at seeing the world with those tools and we become very effective at using them.

    My initial question regarding Se wasn’t questioning effectiveness of Se-rather just questioning what it feels like and how various Se points are evaluated for importance. (Having no Se, some of most terrible errors of judgment arise if I take a single event and react to it, without weighing it against consistency of the observed event in my past. Ne will actually take the isolated Se data point and then explode outwards into many (often totally bonkers) possibilities.)

    On a side note-the INTJs do very well with their NiTeSe decisions and most grow to be quite rigorous in standards they apply to themselves and in screening the patterns and Ni-Se events for proper weighting in logical or emperical analysis. However many INTJ males I have observed will project the weird oddities of their past relationships forward onto their current relationships. The issues in those past relationships will be trigger points in their current relationships which cause very detrimental course alterations, if not corrected quickly, via awareness and increased communication. I suspect this is due to very limited NiFiSe patterns, given their reluctance to jump off cliffs into new relationships, thus limited experience to build patterns from.

    Thus-the short answer-experience making a type of judgement does not gaurentee success but it does give better odds.

    Then we discover type theory and realize how wrong we've been all along

    The world is neither a place of infinite possibilities, nor a mechanical mechanism where every causal relation can be examined and understood. Nor is it a place where people look out for each other and take their neighbour's best interest to heart. Nor are people self-contained intelligent individuals who make free-will decisions with full awareness and are responsible for them.

    Is this what they call maturity?

    I wanted to return to this thread to seek guidance on an issue that I often saw come up with my ISTP. I also see this same issue with my ENFP friend who was with an INTP, and have noted other ENFPs mention it as well in interactions with INTP family members-thus I think it is a IXTP characteristic.

    I dunno what to call it exactly…cranky Ti? In my ISTP it comes across as extreme bitterness and grouchiness, resentment. It isn’t as a result of anything I do in particular, more just moodiness it seems, but while he is in this mood, if I make any requests, I get a scathing cold shoulder and am made to feel like crap. This was the single biggest issue in our marriage. When I encountered it, I want to yell and as it is so frustrating, but I always understood this would be nonproductive, so I just withdrew and ignored the behavior and just took responsibility for things myself, rather than deal with it.

    Latest Example-

    Our 4 yo son is diabetic. We have had a hard time tracking his carb intake and insulin intake on paper, as the sheets keep getting lost or the notebook gets forgotten as he shifts from house to house.

    I found an rather expensive glucose meter that tracks blood glucose, but also allows you to enter carbs, specify the meal, specify the type of insulin given and the amount given. It tracks time of each event. Then you plug it into a PC and download all of the data at once into a program that allows for analysis of the data. (This sort of analysis is extremely important in understanding how a diabetic is responding to dosages of insulin and what types of foods impact blood glucose the fastest. It allows for tighter control of blood glucose in the long run, which reduces damage to the eyes, kidneys and peripheral nerves)

    So this morning I showed the ISTP the meter-he got really irritable and said “there is no way I am doing this. I have to work a full time job, take care of a new born baby, take care of a diabetic four year old and I am not going to do this”.

    I said “It requires four extra buttons to be pushed and takes ten seconds…” He then started slamming things around and being very cold. I said nothing and just watched him mess with it for a bit, then left.

    The feelings this behavior invokes in me:

    1) guilt that I have unfairly burdened another with extra work and made them unhappy, hurt/sadness/remorse and wondering what I can do to make things better….

    2) followed promptly by a rebound anger-frustration (FUCK THIS) that he is making me feel bad over such a small task I have asked him to do, that is so important to our son’s health.

    3) Then I proceed to get even more frustrated as I go over all the things I have to do everyday, due to his not being accountable or responsible enough to do them himself. (ie paying all of my daycare myself as he has too much debt to contribute child support, working two jobs and going to college as a single mom and missing a big part of my older son’s life after he left us as “he wasn’t ready to be a father”, getting up every night at 1 am to check my son’s blood sugar for the next five years, clawing my way out of a white trash future as a single mom, as I knew it was what I had to do for my kid to give him a good future, going to all of my kid’s dr and school appts, as he whines his way out of them, getting stuck with almost all of the debt when our relationship ended.…)

    I do recognize that I am projecting my own immature, partially developed Te value judgments on him –ie (why cant you just be more responsible and accountable…like I had to learn to be??).

    I also recognize that I am provoking his Ti in an odd way by requesting he do extra work in a predefined manner-ie (This is what you need to do…because it is the best answer to solve the problem.)

    Questions:
    What is the best, most productive way to deal with this Ti bitterness?

    Assuming I am not the root cause, how can I interact productively with it when I happen to stumble into it?

    Additionally, how can I make very direct requests for things I do need him to take ownership of, without him feeling like I am bossing him around and then getting resentful?

    Thanks!

    I dont know the best productive way...but be forceful. He is his father, he is stuck in his head with everything he has to do. Once he actually does it and realizes its easy it shouldnt be a problem. He is overwhelmed right now.

    Hope someone can help you on these 2. I am huge on ownership and I would struggle with others as well in regard to this.

    I feel bad for his new baby as well as he obviously cant handle kids
