Thread: Calculate this.

1. Calculate this.

A personality with three functions close in power, almost can’t be ordered.
Ni + Te + Ti=? (unsorted)
Is it any helpful?
If so, what skills does this personality gain?
And what are the flaws?
I’d like to know how a function can change the balance between two opposite functions,..
In this example I gave, can introverted functions support each other?
Or it’s just a direction to define the type of the function, and that the direction is not the same in every pair.
I might seem like I don’t know anything about mbti to mention things no one considered them before..
Anyway please give some time thinking about what I mean, I’m just tickling some new ideas rolling in the deep.

Without thinking about the other functions.

2. Technically speaking, we can't just skip out on the 4th function, I believe it's impossible to judge this without it.

Ni+Te+Ti seems like a fierce combination to me, with huge confidence and extremely good, fast yet thoughtful decision making, but it completely lacks any kind of interest in actually using this. So there'd need to be something secondary which gives this whole thing some direction. An Fe would probably use this to make the world a better place, while an Se would probably be the best detective in the world. Apparently, I don't see how another intraverted function could support this, and if we're already at impossible scnarios, I assume that Ne would make it possible to acquire a master's degree in quantum physics at the age of 6

3. Beautiful..
Let’s add another function.
Si
This one is also strong but just not as the other three..

4. Ni+Ti+Te+Si? I believe that's autism. Tasteless jokes aside, I don't really see Si complimenting this in much of a useful way. With a complete lack of a feeling function, a person like this would be really puzzled about feelings in general. I'd imagine a person like this as pretty contradictory. An observer, oblivious of most of the details of what's going on around them but still somehow seeing the big picture of things. I also think there'd be serious communication issues due to the almost total dominance of intraverted functions. Si definitely doesn't help in this case. I also think it is outright impossible to convince this person about just about anything, with Te, a judging function, being the only thing pointing outwards. Problems may very well be present when it comes to understanding "morals" in general. It's pretty much a computer with a sense of intuition.

This is awesome!!

Time to add another function,
Fi it’s less powerful than Si..

Well this is starting to get a bit too complicated to stay at a theoretical level. I mean that certainly many people with different personalities use their functions differently. I will give it a go though.

With the new Fi function, the person now will have less trouble with feelings and probably with morals too. At least, they'd have some kind of concept of it. The downside of it however is that because still most of the functions are intraverted, it is difficult to really connect with someone, and I think they could be pretty lonely which can lead to problems. This can be compensated if they can develop this Fi and Si and find another intravert, for example a compassionate INFJ friend would definitely help them. What can also help them is some kind of pet, preferably a dog in this case I think. They'd certainly have a difficult time in bigger social settings and still be more of an observer there. I'd imagine them as some kind of biologist or technological researcher, because they certainly have no trouble understanding science and thinking.

7. and are counter-perspectives. Their respective worldviews ultimately clash and can be sources of power-struggles. Each type that values one over the other believes that the other is using the counter-perspective either misguidedly or manipulatively.

To demonstrate just exactly how these counter-perspectives clash -

- Organizational Logic, Constructing Models, Bringing Order, Establishing Hierarchies and Systems to be followed exactly as laid out.
- Business Logic, Utilitarianism, Cutting Costs, Ensuring Efficiency, Using What Works and Discarding What Doesn't.

An example: There are two administrators to an organized system, an LSI () and an LIE ().

The LSI, having his hidden agenda fueled by the utter organization of the system he is enforcing (the system is a cause for him, he must enforce it), is hell-bent on following procedure to a T, as without logical order () there is physical chaos and nothing would ever get done properly. Thus, the LSI is very strict with the application of the rules applied to the system, and acts as a physical operative of the system.

The LIE, embodying the counter-perspective of , always sees what could be made more efficient, what works and what doesn't work. As he observes the system the LSI is enforcing, he notices changes that could be made to remove some obsolete or useless rules that don't measure up to realistic standards, and then sees how current methods could be improved to become more efficient, and thus promptly informs the LSI of these possible changes.

The LSI feels threatened by the LIE's ideas of change, as they restructure the organization of what already exists and what is already working, what he has been enforcing already, and feels that the LIE is simply wanting to use the system to his own gains, not caring for the logical purity of the system itself. When the LSI denies the LIE's ideas of change, the LIE believes that the LSI is acting foolishly, why follow the system the way it is when there may be easier routes to doing things even though it lessens the logical purity of the system?

This is Structural Logic vs Business Logic . Embodying both would be embodying two different philosophies that openly contradict each other.

Very impressive.
And now if we improved few functions in this personality until the cognitive functions get ordered like:
Ti Te Ni Si Fi Ne Se Fe
Although the first four functions are still close in power, but the Si is developed and became more powerful than Fi..
What’s the closest mbti type this can fit in?

Many thinkers have well-developed Ti and Te, and Ni does not oppose the operations of either, so your trio is not out of the question. ENTJs or INTJs with well-developed Ti could have those functions. Or an INFJ with well developed Ti and Te could also have them. Male INFJs, in particular, often have strong Ti since society pushes men away from feeling and towards thinking. So Ni-doms and auxs could potentially have Ti and Te.

10. Get out of here, you’re too obvious.
