What think you of this:
Your ego block sometimes seems like a "contest" of two functions. They ultimately want the same goal, but they go about it in different ways. Your dominant function generally wins out in terms of the bottom line. But sometimes even though you are most happy when the secondary supports primary function, it can be awkward when you find them tugging in different directions.
I would not say this is a common occurrence, but perhaps it is related to being under distress, or in an uncertain or threatening environment.
