    I am curious to know how others experience their inferior function, and if they experience the sort of complex described above. So, do you? And if you do, what does it end up looking like in terms of your external behavior?
    Interesting. Hadn't thought about it this way, but it seems to fit my experience with Fi.

    One near-guaranteed way to hit my Berserk Button is to call me unfeeling, cold, uncaring, selfish, or another variation on that theme.

    Love that book. I relate to her Te-dom descriptions more than any others I've read.

    hmm... I'm calling bullshit, at least in my own case anyways

    I'm most afraid that someone will be better at something than I am... I REALLY hate any coworker who is more competent than me and I wouldn't ever let them know because I know that I shouldn't and therefore feel kind of guilty about it I also always disliked other students who could also knock out an A paper in a couple of hours, people who could defeat me in a drinking marathon and anyone who's dessert got more praise than mine at any family event

    maybe I have issues, but I sure as hell don't think that they have anything to do with inferior functions... those areas of my life are rather less interesting!
