Hello everyone! In this interview, I got a chance to talk to Alexander about what it's like to be an ISTP Ti-Se CP/S(B) FF. During the interview, we talked about Ti and how they are competitive with others. Alex talked about always denying to himself that someone could be smarter and better than him. However, he did say that he does respect people who he perceives are smarter and better than him; though, he will never outwardly say it. He said there's a part of him that really respects people who are more assholish than himself and gets away by being that way. Alex also talked about ExxJs and he respects them because they take on a role he's not doing so it becomes a complementary relationship. Alex lives in Sweden but also got a chance to live in the US for 5 years and he talked about his life in both places. He said it was more authoritarian in the US but also has more freedom of self-expression while in Sweden, it's more introverted and more conformist. As an ISTP, he felt that in the US, it would be easier for him to find the right tribe for himself than in Sweden where he just wants to hide in the woods. We also discussed being a double observer and him having a bunch of observer problems since his first and last animal are both observer ones. We also talked about his consume taking time away from his sleep leaving him tired the next day. He said that even if he is energy dominant and does take time to rest, his consume is robbing him of precious nighttime sleep time still and it's still a problem. Finally, we covered him being a tester and visual and him loving smelling different candles and trying different food and finding it weird if he doesn't like food that the tribe enjoys.

Btw how is M or F labelled?

Intuitively, the first M or F should be for dominant function and the second M or F should be for auxiliary function, but I think you guys do something different?
First M or F is your sensory function (Si or Se). Second M or F is your tribe function (Te or Fe).

That's so freaking arbitrary.

I suggest listening to my suggestion and getting it changed to dominant and auxiliary.

Hello everyone! In this interview, I got a chance to talk to Ashlee about what it's like to be an ESTJ Te-ne PB/C(S) FF. Despite the fact we have the exact same animal stack, Ashlee and I were still very different thanks to the difference in our function stack. Ashlee talked about how difficult it is for her to express what she likes and what she doesn't like. She talked about planning her wedding and letting others decide what cake she will get, what kind of dress, etc. Her fiance (officially typed as an ISTJ Si-Fi SB/P(C) MF) is helping her use her Fi to decide for herself who she wants to come as the bridesmaids. Ashlee also talked about it's easier to do things for other people and she likes solving people-related problems with others thanks to her NT play. Ashlee said she had trouble seeing her blast at first because her blast is double feminine and actually had an easier time seeing her consume because it's double masculine. She talked about finding inspiration every time she experiences something new which goes to show how she's very ExxPish as a jumper ESTJ. She feels baffled that other types can't double observe because she thinks the balance between Ne and Si is not as difficult as Te and Fi. Ashlee also talked about her hulk syndrome when the masculine Fi swing comes and she stops caring for other people (in the moment) and just focuses on herself. Watch this interview here:

Hello everyone! In this interview, I got a chance to talk to Jake about what it's like to be an ENTP Ne-Ti CP/S(B) MM. During the interview, we talked about Jake's double feminine NT consume and how he always forgets what he has gathered. He also talked about his double masculine SF blast last and how it rarely comes out. We talked about religion and how Jake is always switching between his Fe (for God) and Ti (there is no God), and eventually, he came to the conclusion that he will always swing back and forth for the rest of his life. We also talked about his hate of paperwork with having Si at the bottom and he said tax seasons are the worst time of the year for him. Finally, we had a discussion when feminine Ne is actually better than masculine Ne and we came up with a conclusion in the end on how to properly utilize feminine Ne. Watch this interview here:

There's tons of factual proof that the sexual modalities are based on the sensory and tribe functions, not the dominant and auxiliary functions.

Hello everyone! In this video, I talked to Benjamin about what it's like to be an ESFP Se-Fi CP/B(S) FF. Benjamin talked about his life as an ESFP and having trouble using his Ni properly to make life decisions. Instead, he gets stuck channel changing multiple times which actually hurt him. Benjamin talked about changing majors while going to school which hurt him badly because of mounting student loans without completing any degrees or diplomas. Eventually, Benjamin joined the military which I think gave his life some stability. Benjamin also talked about his masculine Ni and how if he makes a long term decision, it feels like it's set, that it cannot be moved. We discussed how because he is an ExxP, he can pivot if that life decision doesn't pan out which shouldn't be the most difficult thing for him. We also talked about the ExxP addiction to gathering which we both shared and how it's important to budget in "gathering new experience money" and not going over that budget. That way, we can keep the gathering addiction monster at bay while we work on being more disciplined. Finally, we talked about tester and visual and Benjamin talked about his obsession with smelling things first hand just to find out what they really smell like. Watch this interview here:

Hello everyone! PB/S(C) FF. In this interview, Maggie talked about being comfortable with gathering information from people and bugging people for help but having trouble with consuming new information for herself. Maggie also talked about wanting to be really competent as a result of her ST sleep and her identity is tied to competence. She said she wants to be a valuable and respected member of the tribe and being competent is how she perceives to be valued. We also talked about her being an ExxJ-ExxP and sometimes, she has no filter and just blurt things out without thinking which causes chaos in the tribe. Maggie also discussed her NF play and how she always tries to gather what the tribe really cares about. In her day job, she works as an economist and part of her job is to track what people care about so they can introduce programs that people will get behind it. In the last part of the interview, we talked about her Ti swing and she said that she's not surprised when it happens because it's built up over time and when she knows a person will not change their behaviour in a good way, she will set hard boundaries with that individual.

Hello everyone! In this interview, I got a chance to talk to Andreas about what it's like to be an ESFP Se-Fi CS/P(B) FF. We started the interview talking about his Ni and how hard planning is for him. Then, we discussed the issue with being blast last and being consume and sleep saviour and how often times, he just can't be bothered to do something. Committing to plans becomes a challenge this specific type because of the indecisiveness of being CS and blast last. The only time Andreas said he can commit quickly if it's something he really wants to consume badly like a good movie or food or shopping. However, when it comes to hanging out with people, it gets put in the maybe but not sure category until closer to the date. Andreas said he's always waiting to see if something better comes up. We also talked about productivity and I asked him if he often times feels like he could be more productive. Andreas revealed that he thinks about it a lot but still can't get himself to get started on doing the productive thing. He said he's been trying to get things done before the deadline recently and he's starting small like with his car repairs. Watch this interview here:

Hello everyone! In this interview, I got a chance to talk to Tamara about what it's like to be an ESTJ Te-Si BP/C(S) FF. Tamara talked about having double feminine ST blast and how it comes across as Fe at first, especially when she joins a new group, but people soon realize that she's trying to Te fix problems for them. She also talked about how she loves the NT play and how she does it all day and problem solving with other people is something she enjoys. Tamara thought she was saviour consume but turns out it's because her NF is double masculine and she can really see it as well as the fact that she is info-dominant and having the most accurate information is important to her. We then talked about SF blast and how Tamara has trouble sleeping, and neglects processing her emotions. Tamara also talked about having trouble having a consistent health routine for herself. We then talked about her Fi love and hate and Tamara was apprehensive to share them since her Fi is at the bottom. However, once she got started, it was easy for her to talk about her likes and dislikes. This was especially true when we talked about her sexual modalities and being a tester. She loves smelling different perfumes and trying different foods. Watch this interview here:

Hello everyone! In this interview, I got a chance to talk to Jamie about what it's like to be an ISTJ Si-Te BS/P(C) FM. We started the interview talking about her masculine Te and feminine Fi as well as her double masculine NT play. Jamie talked about shit talking to other people but when people shit talk back, she gets butt hurt because of her feminine Fi. She had to read the pattern and eventually figure out that she's being aggressive so of course people would eventually hit back. We also talked about her SF sleep and she went into detail how she prioritizes what she will do with her life using that. In the final part of the interview, we discussed NF consume and how she found the answer to her life's problem by understand how consume works. She talked about Dave Ramsey who is consume last and used consume to learn more about finances and Jamie is doing the same thing by using consume to update her worldview. She did say that if her consume doesn't match what is already inside the IxxJ box, that she will throw away that information. However, if the new information she consumes is in her IxxJ box but it destroys the framework she has created, she will get mad but she'll accept it and work with the new information and make the necessary update. Jamie's video camera stopped working in the last 15-20 minutes of the interview which goes to show her observer problems. Watch this interview here:

Hello everyone! In this interview, I got a chance to talk to all the ExxJ types about their shared experiences and what makes them different from one another. During the interview, we talked about ExxJs having trouble making a decision for themselves and needing permission from the tribe before making decisions. We also talked about Te shaming Ti and Fe shaming Fi. Savannah asked an awesome question to the ESFJ and ENFJs on how Te's can be more sensitive to Ti's and not offend them. We also discussed what their Ti or Fi swing looks like when they go on a "selfishness" swing. We also discussed racist jokes and how they perceived it as an ExxJ. We also talked about blood and family ties and how the ESFJ and ENFJ perceived it differently from the ENTJ and ESTJ. Double observing was something we tried discussing but the topic was too boring for the ExxJs to continue talking about because it's so easy for them. In the end, the ExxJs had a message to say to fellow ExxJs on how to better themselves as individuals. Some things I noticed about each participant include Julia (ESFJ and our only info-dominant ExxJ) did an amazing job maintaining the flow of the conversation being balanced with her Si+Fe and Ne+Ti. Maggie (our jumper ESFJ) was relatively quiet and focused on gathering the tribe's perspective. Rob (our jumper ENFJ with double activated Ti and token male ExxJ) was acting very ExxP like with committing to decisions. Savannah (our jumper ENTJ) asked some very good questions to the lead Fe's. Nina (our jumper ESTJ and only lead NT) was doing a makeshift double decider which shows how present that masculine Fi is at the bottom when double activated. Natalie (our ENFJ and only MF) produced many hilarious moments including before the interview with her blast to Nina just seconds after learning something from Julia. And finally, Heather shows the big difference between an ESTJ and ENTJ when it comes to dealing with presenting themselves to the tribe. I also thought it was interesting that Julia being info-dominant was not as scared of how the tribe perceived her as the energy dominants were. Julia said she can clarify with the tribe which shows the easy flow of information while Natalie said she never thought of asking the tribe and just assumed everyone hated her.

Hello everyone! In this interview, I got a chance to talk to all the different IxxP types about their shared experiences and what makes them different from one another. This interview was super interesting because we actually got every single IxxP type variation(standard and jumpers)! During the interview, each IxxPs got a chance to ask questions to their fellow IxxPs. Nathan (INTP Ti-Si SB/P(C) MF) asked fellow IxxPs how they see their Ti and Fe and Fi and Te Axis and Ti being frustrated with Te. Shelby (ISFP Fi-Se CP/B(S) MF asked Julien about the info-dominant facade. Yvonne (INTP Ti-Ne CP/S(B) FF) asked about the IxxP ExxJ swing (self-loathing, asking for permission, etc) and IxxPs childhood. Klaus (ISTP Ti-Se CS/P(B) MF) asked about the IxxPs spiritual discovery from knowing their type and learning about their 4th function and animals. Marco (ISTP Ti-Ni SB/P(C) MM) asked about IxxPs and their experience with relationships. Julien (ISFP Fi-Ni SC/B(P) MF) asked about IxxPs standards. Tamara (INFP Fi-Si SC/P(B) MF) asked the Ti's about being right. Caroline (INFP Fi-Ne CS/P(B) MM) asked the fellow IxxPs about being competitive. In the last part of the interview, I asked the standard and jumper IxxPs to practice their De and use their Play and Blast to give each other advice. Nathan teaches Yvonne how to use blast, Yvonne teaches Nathan how to consume. Julien teaches Shelby how to use NF sleep, and Shelby teaches Julien how to ST play. Marco teaches Klaus how to NF blast and Klaus teach Marco how to ST consume. Tamara teaches Caroline how to Oi and Caroline teaches Tamara how to Oe. Watch this all IxxP panel discussion here:

Hello everyone! In this interview, I got a chance to talk to every single IxxJ type (both standard and jumper variations) talk about their fears, similarities, and differences. Lindsay (INTJ) asked her fellow IxxJs how their fears physically manifest in their body. Lynda (ISFJ jumper) asked how being tribe above self affects the IxxJs first function. Avis (INTJ jumper) asked how to prevent other people's chaos from affecting themselves. Rose (ISFJ) asked how their sexual modalities change the experience of their first function. Kevin (INFJ) asked fellow IxxJs how they experience relationships. Joyce (INFJ jumper) asked which part of their OPS code they related to the most. Jamie (ISTJ) asked what was the most useful thing they learned when they got their type back. Cherie (ISTJ jumper) didn't have any questions. Some of the big moments in the interview is when Rose discovered the pattern that those that have feminine as their first function tend to be more paranoid or neurotic than those that have a masculine first function. I also learned that containers holding liquids with faulty lids are the bane of an IxxJs existence because they end up spilling the liquid everywhere. And interestingly, many IxxJs plan their ExxP moment by going on vacation and acting like an ExxP when they are not home. Watch this interview here:

Hello everyone! In this interview, I got a chance to talk to all the ExxP types about their differences and similarities. During the discussion, we discussed what causes ExxPs to feel anxious and how that feeling manifests in their bodies. We also talked about the ExxP's IxxJ swing and what that looks like for each individual ExxP type. It turns out that ExxPs also don't like chaos and like to control things in their life. The only difference is when chaos happens or plans get ruined, the ExxPs can easily pivot to other plans or feel calm when chaos hits. Next, the ExxPs discuss their issues with over-gathering and what that looks like based on their type. This part of the discussion was interesting because each type tends to over-gather something completely different ranging from physical objects to information to values. We also touched on double observing or the lack of teaching/doing after consuming new information. This leads us talking to the differences between info-dominant and energy-dominant ExxPs. We then touched on "people problems" as an ExxP and what that looks like. And finally, we discussed Ti being annoyed at Ti and Fi being annoyed at Fe and even Fe being annoyed at Fe. Panel members were: Jany (ESFP Se-Te PB/C(S) FF), Tiana (ESFP Se-Fi CS/P(B) FF), Shane (ESTP Se-Ti CP/B(S) MM), Ian (ESTP Se-Fe PC/S(B) FF), Jacob (ENTP Ne-Fe PC/S(B) FF), Jake (ENTP Ne-Ti CP/S(B) MM), Annie (ENFP Ne-Fi CS/B(P) MF), Ashli (ENFP Ne-Te PC/B(S) FM) for the first hour and me (ENFP Ne-Te PB/C(S) MF) for the second hour.

Hi! :)

Would you kindly explain this idea of jumpers, please?

Thanks! 🤍
Sure, jumpers are types that skip over their second function and jump directly to their third. So if you are an ENTP, instead of doing Ti after your Ne, you would use Fe instead. This would make you a Ne-Fe as opposed to Ne-Ti. Here's a video that explains this more in detail:

Hello everyone! In this interview, I got a chance to talk to Brennen about what it's like to be an ISTP Ti-Se CP/B(S) FF. The first thing we discussed is what it's like to be an extroverted ISTP with double-activated SF play. Brennen talked about tracking what's popular but doesn't necessarily follow it all the time because he wants to be different from the tribe. Brennen also talked about his masculine Ni and how he thought he was intuitive because his intuition was something he can see quite easily. He did say that when he was younger, he preferred to do the more "daredevil" stuff, and even when he asks me for examples, he prefers them to be concrete. But it goes to show how balanced Brennen is with his Se and Ni. Brennen then talked about being judged and wanting to be the best and to be unique and different. He said that the only person that he can truly be vulnerable with is his wife; otherwise, it's hard for him. We then talked about his strong sense of smell which makes him picky with food. Brennen also talked about wanting to gather the highlights and hates gathering the boring Si. Watch this interview here:

Hello everyone! In this interview, I got a chance to talk to Sarah about what it's like to be an ISFP Fi-Se CP/S(B) FM. Sarah is the same personality type as Taylor Swift and she made some pretty funny comments about her celebrity type twin. We then talked about her life as an ISFP and not understanding how relationships work. Sarah also talked about her ExxJ swing and how in relationships, she would like to go straight to marriage instead of the ambiguous dating phase and be together all day with her partner. She said that she can be herself and love hearing out her friend's stories as long as they are in her Fi. Sarah also talked about being visual yet for her job, she works with scents and perfumes which uses her tester modality as opposed to her primary one. She said that using her visual feels more personal and commercializing it feels wrong. Sarah talked about her feminine Fi and double masculine NT blast last and how she would be crying while saying bad things to other people when a demon swing happens. We also talked about her life as an IxxP and wanting to be the best and be competitive. Sarah also talked about her masculine Ni and NF when she talks about having premonitions of things that will happen between her and another person and those projections actually happening for real. Finally, we talked about how she got into personality types and how she thinks tarot and horoscope is bullshit and MBTI and OPS seemed more factually true hence why she decided to invest her time and energy to learn this system so she can improve herself and work on being better at using her NT blast last.

Hello everyone! In this interview, I got a chance to talk to Erin about what it's like to be an ESFP Se-Te PB/S(C) FF. Erin is the rare consume last ExxP and it's clear to have some benefits and disadvantages as a result. The advantage would be that she is a production and teaching machine which helps her career. The downside is that she becomes disconnected from her emotions and while she can execute, she might be working on the wrong field or wrong life direction. This proved to be the case as we discussed her divorce, lack of planning, and self-neglect as a result of not using her Fi and her Ni more often. The conclusion we came up with was still positive as Erin, at the very least, is aware of her problems and knows where to start to troubleshoot and figure out how to be better in touch with her emotions and focus more on her inner world so she can do things in life that brings her joy instead of unhappiness.
