    INFJ - The Protectors

    I already asked this question in blog, and someone referred me to this post. Maybe you will be able to help me. I am INFP (although I first tested out INFJ). So, as INFP supposedly my intuition is auxiliary to my feeling, and my thinking is inferior and extraverted. Well, I related quite well to your Ti descriptions (with some exceptions) and very little to your explanations of Te. I also related very well with Fi and very little with Fe, with some exceptions. I am quite divided between Ne and Ni, as I can relate to both. So, either I am confused because I am actually an INFJ (very close on P and J) or because the conclusions that have been determined about P and J affecting the perceiving process are perhaps skewed. Any thoughts?

    Since the inferior is the most consciously rejected function, you might identify with it less. This is often reflected on the Cognitive Processes test results.
    Ti, meanwhile, s the right brain alternative, so you could possibly relate to it more than your inferior. The order that has Ti at the bottom is about archetypal complexes, not strength.

    Interesting, so does it follow that the inferior is probably inferior to ALL possible processes? As an Fi, then even my Fe is more developed than Te, my inferior function. I guess I'm curious how a person really develops their opposite function (for lack of better termonology): How a Ti develops Te or how a Se develops Si, etc...or even if there is any kind of theory on this.

    Which do you relate more to? Ti or Fi?

    I find I often relate to descriptions of both too. But more strongly to Ti. However, I don't relate to the description of Fi in this thread at all.

    In the way I've come to look at it now, it's not necessarily so much abut "development". Part of what we call development is in Jungian terms known as differentiation.The dominant function differentiates, and that plus the auxiliary determine our type. The "products" of the other functions can enter consciousness as long as they're linked to our ego's goals (as manifested most in the dominant). Hence, iNtuiters can see, hear, etc. Thinkers can feel and feelers can think. And function preference is best thought of as a perspective.

    So when we speak of the unpreferred functions being unconscious, first of all what that measn is that their perspectives re likely to be seen as less relevent than our preferred world view. The roles they fall into, with some being considered "shadow" are again, about archetypal complexes, which are sort of inner roles based on personal experience. These roles will then take on the perspective of the associated function attitude, and this will usually erupt unconsciously only in certain instances, and will usually involve projecting the role onto others. So when this erupts, Ti for you wil likely play the most negative role of all the others, and hence, fit "last place" out of all the eight. In come cases of stress, it will come up a s the alternative for your dominant Fi. The ego maintains its dominant orientation, yet switches to the normally rejected judgment function, which is usually kept in the opposite orientation.
    Te will possibly be a more positive projection towards those you look up to. Hence, it is grouped with the first four, on the "ego-syntonic" side.
    The dominant function with the oppoaite orientation (Fe in your case) backs up the dominant, so it will likely be relatively strong for each type as well, in addition to playing an "oppositional" role at times.

    None of this says anything about relative strength. The orders are just about roles they play. The same with Lenore Thomson's lasagna order, where the terrtiary and inferior appear as #7 and 8.

    One theory says they don't, you either use the E or the I, not both.

    What makes you think your Fe is developed?

    I don't particularly think that that my Fe iis developed. I was using it as an example. If I can relate to Ti, though I am an Fi, but not Te, then perhaps my Ti is more developed than even my inferior Te or even my oppositely oriented Fe.

    This makes some sense to me. But is Ti a "right brain" function?
