    Default Behold! The ENTP infected with love.

    I found this recently and related too well. So, I offer it to you, my fellow ENTPs to do with as you will, as I know you would anyway, and to those who have been unfortunate enough to be the recipient of our affections.

    ENTP and the mystery of Fi.

    an awesome read.


    i'm very new to understanding functions, so perhaps this particularly hit home for that reason, but i like the thoughts of running Fi through the Ti wringer, essentially feigning Fi completely...



    sigh.

    I liked that it was understandable even if you aren't a function expert. I know very little beyond my function order myself. Yet, I definitely recognized the order's manifestations in that article.

    I've asked so many people on this forum to explain functions. It seems people are physically incapable of teaching, or at very least unwilling/able to bounce ideas off each other. I finally gave up and just today did a little research, of course, primarily about my functions. It's odd a piece like this came into existence, today of all days. Thanks.

    That is odd. But, you are very welcome.

    I've had trouble figuring it out as well. So far, it seems that people (mostly the NFs) can apparently read the wiki about it and BOOM know which thoughts are which and from where, and then talk about them as if they're tangible. I need more help in recognizing where a thought is rooted.

    I wouldn't know where to find them if I had a thought garden.

    Hm, more understanding. I'm sure I was simply choosing the wrong people to attempt engagement with.

    Examples, so far, seem to be the best way to understanding for me. The article did a great job with that. Fi being so low in our order that we have trouble, naturally, and being that Ti is higher, we analyze, analyze, analyze. Since analyzing what we don't understand is basically, what we do. It makes sense that we'd over-think this since complex issues brings out our determination to understand even more. Now, we're challenged, but in this case, it could easily be a handicap. It's in context.

    The more we care (love) the more determined we are to understand. But, being that it's in the Fi realm, we trip, stumble, become even more determined, etc.

    Unfortunately, it's not a project, computer problem, or grand scheme, it's a person, and one can only have so much information to work with there.

    examples are a fantastic way of learning for me. it gives me cross-examination, between what i think i perceive and what is actually there (examples exemplify the concept).

    a customer of mine, on his way out of the door, asked me if i was an analytic person. it piqued my curiosity, i told him i thought so. he said having 9 pens in my shirt pocket was the give-away, lol. it's stuck with me. i dont' know why i'm stating this.


    i'd like to think it's a gift, apart from a handicap! i feel "upper management" material... but shh, i think that sounds pretentious =X

    Ha. What an odd observation to share with a stranger. Cool, though. Like he had to ask to find out if his random theory was correct.

    I agree with you. Normally, it's not a handicap at all, well, maybe a little, but not usually in a permanent life-changing way. It works 99% of the time. However, I edited and added why, in this instance, it has great potential to become a handicap.

    Because it's dealing with a combination of the most overwhelming (positive) feeling of all, unnerving in the best of circumstances, plus it hits us right smack in our weak spot, Fi, AND requires dealing with the machinations of another human being altogether, who never comes with a manual! That makes for one very unique "problem". One that can only use past references, and objective knowledge so far to "solve".

    "It’s the stuff that makes ENFPs and INFPs, the manic pixies of the MBTI world, wander off in search of ice cream and come back a day later, having fallen asleep in a bean bag chair at a furniture store."


    This is a good thing?
