Clear Fe and Ti. Attachments tend to "blur" logic["I have X money to survive this week but I so want this little kitty!" -_-"] so I see it as mandatory to "Ti"---as well as seeking the most universal "attachments" such as "survival".Also, I tend to re-evaluate my morals and values every once in a while, I look at them to make sure they are logically consistent.
I also want this answered. I have had many "nerdy" INFJ friends, though these males AND females have both the social ability AND the academic ability to be flexible. Some were even highly manipulative but rare have I seen them having trouble socializing relative to other INXX's.[*]Why is my Ti so developed? Is it because certain introverts tend to lean on their introverted functions?
Seeing as that you have Je[interaction function] as your Auxiliary, I believe introversion has played a significant role in this. It's possible to do Ni Fe, but easier to do Ni alone. And with the lack of external output, Ti could have substituted for your Judging function---allowing a more "exercised" Ti. As oppose to this condition, Ti Ne does not need interaction.
Perhaps if you did more Fe, you will "change" and be more "charitable" and idealistic, though perhaps not.
Or it could be something called the "Tertiary disease".
1. Why do some INTP's have demonic Si?
2. ENFP's with killer Te?
3. What else?
Fe can only dictate values to a certain degree. Look at INFJ scientists. Different Ni leads to different ideal perception.If I have Fe, I care about people in general but I don't really care about people who aren't important to me. Is this a lack of Fe or just undeveloped Fe or perhaps I'm understanding the function wrong when combined with Ni.
An ESFJ(Fe dom) friend of mine is very confrontational. Inferior Je are those that tend to dislike confrontations.I handle disagreements by confronting the person and arguing. For someone who loves harmony (Fe) I can certainly abandon it when I feel wronged. I don't tend to have such an acute reaction for other people (but then again, I'm not close to a lot of people)
Always a factor, yes.Is the vast difference between my view of what an INFJ is and what an INFJ actually is caused by the fact that I'm an INFJ male and most INFJs are female?
Contingency planning is a conscious natural "skill" of Te. But does this mean that an INTP can't do contingency plans? I do it all the time, especially with my Ne of looking for possible errors.My ability to make contingency plans. Ni/Fe/Ti/Se can do that as well?
I think that's it for now. (It's nearly 6 am right now, my post may not be coherent in all places)
"What if I lost my wallet, I'll do X. What If Z, Y!"
The difference is that it's less natural because I think I'd have to go to my Inferior J(Pi Je) functions.
Fe Doms are actually quite "good" with confrontations as it is a Je function. Inferior Je, on the other hand, are the ones with the relation of "opposition against confrontation".
The person who I know who cared for others the most was a "T". I don't believe "will to do 'good'" is directly correlated with type.
I wanted to recommend you a simple way of learning which functions do you actively use extensively at any period of time.
I, myself, am conscious of which I significantly use daily and during the times I use them. My thoughts go "I am using Si right now." Which is actually currently true and I also sense the slight reduction of "mental energy" brought upon by the usage of a lower preferred and undeveloped function(Si).
The only "key" to this is mental alertness(Ti) and a significant attention to detail(Se). Also, probably Ni.
I understand that you have Inferior Se. See if you find errors in that perceiving cognition. It could prove your inferiority with the function.
I am also well aware of how much "if's" and "what if's" I make during speech and during my thought processes. They "energize" me and drive my interest in the realms of theoretical thinking.
It's quite simple.
