Advice on my ENTJ Mom
Okay, so my mom is an ENTJ. She's about 50 yrs old.
She's got an underdeveloped Te/Ni side, and a more developed Se/Fi side.
(No, she's not an ESFP... She's a self-confirmed, imbalanced ENTJ ... she lived in a 3rd world country and couldn't develop her thinking side, blah blah -- beside the point...)
- Often times she's always thinking that people are out to get her, or at least plotting against.
It's not serious, as a few logical words from me can usually put her at ease, but it's frequent enough to make me wonder about it.
- She also gets so caught up in thinking about what someone just said (usually out-loud) that she doesn't necessarily pay full attention to the rest of what people are telling her, even when they are currently giving her the facts/answer. I understand, this can happen to any N, but after she's done sorting it out (many times to the wrong conclusion) I'll ask her right away what she heard me say during her thinking and she'll tell me almost verbatim what I said. She still gets it wrong...
- She can be very hasty in making decisions.
What drove me to seek advice: Those moments when the look on her face tells me she feels "incompetent for not being as smart as she could" ... A self-considered sin for most NTs, and I definitely know the same frustration when a lack of understanding pervades my being (or fails to engross it).
Anyway, the last point is what drove me to seek practical advice in helping her develop her Te/Ni.
Anything you all can offer would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
