    Default NI-TI vs NI-FI?

    What's the difference between an ni-fi loop and ni-ti loop? I am struggling to figure out wether I'm INTJ or INFJ. Thanks!!

    Ni-Fi loop: you get stuck in your head and instead of making short-term, result-oriented judgments on how much sense connections make (therefore moving forward in life), you just think about how much value those connections have to you.
    Ni-Ti loop: you get stuck in your head and instead of making short-term, result-oriented judgments on how much value connections have (therefore moving forward in life), you just think about how much sense those connections make to you.

    I fail to see how a Jungian Introverted Intuitive type could be a J. This is a type more concerned with pursuing their flights of fancy than they are in molding the external world around them.

The extraverted standpoint would say of him: 'Reality has no existence for him; he gives himself up to fruitless phantasies'. A perception of the unconscious images, produced in such inexhaustible abundance by the creative energy of life, is of course fruitless from the standpoint of immediate utility.

The latter might be regarded as the normal case, since there is a general tendency of this type to confine himself to the perceptive character of intuition.

    Do you test as a J on MBTI tests, or does your self-typing as a J involve shoehorning MBTI types into a functions framework?

    Also, I believe Jung regarded the auxiliary function as sharing the temperament of the dominant function, when sufficiently differentiated and conscious in the psyche. To him, Ni-Ti and Ni-Fi would have been the default types for an Introverted Intuitive type with a conscious auxiliary function, and not the result of the dominant and tertiary looping.

    I wonder who theorize that Ni-Fi, Ni-Ti loop.
