    Default Carl Jung on the Ti Inferior Function

    The following describes the operating of the inferior function for the Ti-dominant individual:

    "The relatively unconscious functions of feeling, intuition, and sensation, which counterbalance introverted thinking, are inferior in quality and have a primitive, extraverted character, to which all the troublesome objective influences this type is subject to must be ascribed. The various measures of self-defence, the curious protective obstacles with which such people are wont to surround themselves, are sufficiently familiar, and I may, therefore, spare myself a description of them. They all serve as a defence against magical influences ; a vague dread of the other sex also belongs to this category."

    Wow, that was helpful! Thanks a lot for sparing yourself the necessity of describing the Ti defense mechanisms.

    And then he ends with -- "females, you scary!"

    So he was too close for comfort to describe his own form of the inferior? Or mistakenly think that it was obvious to everyone? Looks more like it's missing context though.


    I've been curious about that whole "vague dread of the other sex" thing though...... wouldn't this also mean that women who are Ti types also dread men for being too "F"y?

    Because the other sex represents a "magical influence"? A danger to intellectual equilibrium?
