That was the NT's "pragmatism" being implied there, as opposed to the SJ's cooperativeness which is what tends to make them trust institutions more.I am definitely about "what works" and building models in my head. I don't think I'm all that "institutional" in my approach but I could be wrong.
Again the tertiary inflation, or what others call the "loop". And introverted functions can be hard to tell apart at times. S deals with "what it is", in terms of data being gathered, and T is "what it is", in the sense of a technical break-down of the object, so both functions seem similar. And when both are the same attitude, they will seem all the more similar (even when extraverted. Both Se and Te are often described in terms of "taking action"). So for both to be introverted, they may be confused even more. But if both are there, and you know you're an introvert, then one is dominant, and the other is tertiary.I think the source of my confusion is that I read descriptions of Ti and Si and I identify with both equally. Either I'm not interpreting them right, not self-aware enough, or I'm just a paradox that doesn't fit the theory.
I do both but I think slightly more the latter than the former.
The dominant is the ego's main world view, so you have to determine which perspective: things making rational sense, or things being familiar, is what really drives your ego. What is more frustrating when its need is not met.
So that sounds like it's not dominant.I don't see myself as all that traditional. In fact many of the sense impressions and associations I've had are quite unique and individual. I remember reading somewhere that the Si dominant often doesn't realize how unique their own sense impressions are!
That may be true once an area of interest happens to be encountered or they are learning something, but I don't think Si preferrers would really focus on acquiring knowledge just for its own sake or putting that much focus into interests. "Knowledge and mastery" of everything dealt with is the NT's need.Interesting, I kind of strive to be the most knowledgeable about my areas of interested. Before I attributed that to INTP and/or enneagram 5 but I could see how this could fit with Si.
That's explained by the Supine, and probably AS. "results" is something in general preferred by the "Behind the Scenes", as opposed to "process-oriented". So most INTP's should fit that, unless you're referring to something else.Compared to INTPs I'm more emotionally sensitive, more security oriented, seem to need more specifics and probably a bit more results oriented.
That sounds more like the genuine type preference. (N+T). Si is just a relief/defense function that you fall back on.Compared to ISFJs I'm more emotionally detached, more independent, less tradition minded, more intellectually inclined, and more open to new ways of doing things.
