That is the most prominent way I can tell the difference. Many mistake kindness for weakness and this becomes evident quickly…. Thanks for your observations, Serpent. And yes, people think I read their minds. We see both sides of the coin. They prefer listening to their heart and not their mind, and often take decisions based on the same.
Being extremely sensitive to rejection, they will only make their move if they see that the person is mutually interested. On the other hand, they want intimacy in the relationship and encourage their partners to share. On the flip side, I sometimes find Fi maddeningly illogical, and I must remind myself that it makes perfect sense to the person using it. They have trouble connecting with people on a deep level, but when it happens, those friendships tend to last. However, I did and still do feel incredibly guilty for telling them off.
That is, they lead with Perspectives, and Harmony is an auxiliary process. I express my passions quite unintentionally when the topic comes up, my sister is more reserved and rarely shares these with others. In that case I am flexing my Accuracy and leaving my loved ones alone. One more thing is that this is already the second time my friend broke all contact with me. The result is a lot of one-sided relationships. Are there reasons that these two types may not get along as well as it might seem on paper? And thanks for helping me understand some things.
Recognizing the ability of others to do this, they are embodying a truth about people, which is fluidity and ability to change to reach goals. Very much so, but it has to be centered around an idea I believe in. And I tend to mirror the emotions I feel around me. There is no perfect type and in the same way there are no perfect matches. The thing that continues to confuse me is how a type difference of one area changes all the other type descriptors. Harmonizing the two is often what helps to illuminate a basic concept about human needs.
For instance, a woman is talking nonstop about something that made her happy at work, while her best friend is just listening with a small smile on her face. I keep to myself, just as you stated. Then there is a necessary integration process. In 4th grade, we had a friend who was bossy, dictatorial and mean. They observe the world around them and make deductions, pinpointing occurrences as they understand them via their Ni. They both see the world in abstract and possibilities, which can lead to engaging conversation.
They can manufacture an emotional experience in order to test out what it would feel like, giving them more content to go on at game time. However, they tend to open up to people they are close to, such as friends or family. I assess a situation very quickly and accurately, however, and respond with the goal of defusing bad situations and creating equitable outcomes. People tend to focus on the manner of expression over the meaning of it, and they interpret the meaning poorly, instead of humbly admitting they just dont understand something. They say it can be at different stages with these personality types. I love the explanation about mirroring vs absorbing emotions btw. Because functions and function stacks are.
If we say that intuitives are rarely practical, then we'd have to concede that one can't both be creative and pragmatic since logical consistency would lead us to concede that sensors are rarely creative , which is just false. They understand you based on understanding themselves. They like to focus on all the possibilities of any situation rather than observing the concrete details. Or can you go with only a few hours a week? It ends up usually showing up as a harsh subjective opinion that has only gathered enough data to reinforce its own viewpoint. First of all, I had to do my research. So, I definitely lead with authenticity. That is, they are mental processes designed to help us evaluate information in order to come to a judgment.
For example, as an idealist, I tend to dislike cynicism in general surprise, surprise. Question 4: You use tertiary and inferior functions during stress, but how much stress do you have to be in to go to the inferior, as opposed to the tertiary? People tend to project feelings and motives, etc, onto others based off of their own fears and insecurities. Why does the opposite of the practical facet being conceptual imply that we can have people who are both practical and creative? They will communicate their love through offbeat and unconventional actions, which will keep the spark alive in their relationship. That is an interesting question. Once they get over something, they actually do get over it. Each decision and its subsequent emotional impact is cataloged, however, and future decisions become easier and faster.
