Well, suffice it to say, the major contributing factor to my N development, and further that, the understanding and participation in loop(not that else wise would be achievable)... is in having a Borderline Personality coupled with an ESTP type.
It's come to the point where I love hearing others' perceptions due to my own being rather fluid,.. something of maintaining a consensus communique as a result of instabilty(borderline) and adaptability(ESTP)...
Mirroring! We recently have a thread on that and Fe users. The tendency to pick up speech patterns among other things from people we interact with as a means of facilitating communication and congeniality... except when you go overboard you've become like a chameleon with no "center" to call your own.
I'm interested in hearing about your take on ESTP adaptability... is it influenced in part by the tertiary Fe?
I could see how the adaptability would come about with reference to tertiary Fe... I'd go so far as to agree in some moderate form or other,...
Mind you, I'd expect the base reasoning, of filtration this up to the top(in hierarchical order of action if you will) would be a matter of personal commitment to a preferred standard, otherwise it would be rather suppressed due to game play to move along despite consequence...
So under such a thought, personal development would be a matter of finding equilibrium of comfort, thereby allowing new situations besides ego games to incur(one path of many anyway).
...though I am not nearly as intimately familiar with communicating these aspects of type, a matter of lack of contact with this manner of the subject. As such, if none of that was in any other way coherent to your understanding, it's a matter of my flawed understanding derived from various sources quickly interneted.
Interesting Side note - my pursuits regarding relationships are much closer in nature to that of an NF than that of an SP.

Welcome Wank, may your humble name bring us many a hand party. I'll have you know that we recently had a person die on this forum, and many of us are in mourning. It is terribly important that you respect the dead and not laugh at the manner in which they most unfortunately passed away. Have fun, but not too much fun, because that would be disrespectful.
I don't know,... I've wondered a fair bit of being an N, Though I rather can not call to question that of my being an ESTP, in that my actions, if not words[written], are rather with in some context of constant promotion of one subject or another[a matter that was in years past rather outside of my awareness] amongst other things,...
Additionally, I find myself contented in that you sir, chose to share your loss with me out of all those you've spoken with in regards to introduction. It's nice to know

Reason: Required smiley
I can't bring myself to call you "Wank". I'll henceforth refer to you as "Wink". Sadly, I feel our relationship will always be formal, or else, I might call you "Winkie", which would be almost as bad. I do hope you'll understand. Welcome!
Hello, I'm one of wank's aforementioned NT friends. While I suppose it would be slightly more sensical to introduce myself in my own topic, I'd rather add fuel to the fire and ride the coattails of this one. I doubt I'll become too noteworthy a member, as frankly, forums are a timesink, and that's one resource I'm trying to make the best of. In any case, wank (oh, as of now, my new nickname for him is winkie) finally convinced me to post here. +1
