    Default Extroverted Loops

    So we hear about introverted loops a lot (or I do). But as an extrovert, I know I have experienced Ne/Te loops.

    What are your experiences with extroverted loops?

    How do they compare to their introverted counterparts?

    For me, I feel like Ne/Te loops can actually help me get shit done and break out of my usual state of thinking and waffling.

    Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.

    My friend is an ENFP, and she almost seems like some sort of manic inventor when she's stuck in a loop. She just goes and goes and goes and is terrified of coming down, and then she crashes and burns. I don't really know or hear much about these loops though, good thread topic.

    haha, 'manic inventor' is a pretty good description. i always think of Water Boy "visualize and attack" when i get in that mode.

    i don't really feel terrified of coming down i wouldn't say. i definitely try to take advantage of it when it strikes. since i work best in bursts of energy, i'm aware that it's kinda my chance to knock stuff out and i want to like get it all done while i'm feeling motivated. but i do feel like i kind of zone out in a way, get hyper-focused, and can do things with precision and inspiration that is usually just an ability i'm aware of in a distant way when it's not engaged.

    the 'crash' afterwards is usually just indulging in Fi. since it's neglected in the loop, i suddenly get really reflective and stuff for a period of time to try to realign myself with my values and direction. i can really enjoy both states very much.

    do you think you ever have experienced an Fi/Si loop? that would be interesting to hear about.

    i much prefer the ne/te loops to the fi/si ones.

    I don't think I have ever been in a Fe/Se loop. There have been a few times where I might have been, but I'll be honest I am not entirely sure what one would look like. When I am stressed/depressed my natural inclination is to hermit and sulk.

    I'm pretty familiar with the Fe/Ne loop, especially if I'm dealing with unfamiliar territory and my Si leaves the building. I get really stuck on evaluating all possible outcomes and how they will affect the people involved.

    I think I was just in an Fe/Se loop tonight. I was mediating a conflict and I felt totally attuned to it and was able to communicate with clarity the emotions that the two conflicting parties were feeling. I don't think they happen very frequently though, at least personally. They're nice when they arrive.

    I'm in a bit of a Fe/Ne loop, I start to panic when I have too much responsibility, I know what the right thing to do is, but I can't bring myself to do it so I just worry a lot and do nothing.

    Interesting. It appears I have misjudged what is happening internally. The part about visualize and attack made me laugh. My friend gets pretty scary when she's using that Ne-Te combo. GET OUT OF HER WAY. It's like a mischievous fairy wielding a sledgehammer. Doesn't last super long though, because the fairy's arms get tired. Sometimes I think I'm an ENFP myself, but I have no Te.

    do you think you ever have experienced an Fi/Si loop? that would be interesting to hear about.
    Yes. When I'm in a good loop, I feel so balanced, relaxed, centered, etc. When I'm in a bad loop, I am lying face down on the floor, flashing back to every crappy thing that has ever happened to me.

    My Ne-Te loop would me just getting really hyper and then blurting out some really absurd, blunt things. I'm not sure, really. I dunno how well I understand loops.
