The class is dominated by intuition, it is a humanities course, and it is taught by an english teacher. It has consistently gotten worse and less appealing over the semester....
1 - main professor
Seems to be INFp, reminds me a lot of my INFp art history teacher from the past. Can do into extreme depth about what things mean, which is nice at first, but doesn't seem to get when enough is enough. An english student or literary fanatic's kind of teacher. However, he is a skilled enough teacher to know when he is getting to be too much at least. Or perhaps seeing his counterpart in action makes him realize how bad things can get.......
2- the assistant, and close friend, of main professor
So apparently he is a stock broker, and is all about time lines and stuff. Initially I thought, well, this certainly is Ni + Te, because he lists so many facts. And in providing historical context he was quite useful - at the beginning of the year. Clearly an intuitive type, clearly an NT. But then I began to wonder about things.
Maybe it is just excessive Te usage, but it almost seems like Ne - because he just keeps jumping from here to there to everywhere, and it gets so off track sometimes. It is annoying, and other people feel the same way too - not just me. He has gotten worse as the semester went by, pulling up all of these abstract facts, personal experiences, and stories that just distort whatever we were trying to go on.
That, combined with the INFp, it just seems like total lack of...... direction. Maybe it is because it is Ni dominant + Ni creative tweaking my polr, but it has just become extremely incoherent.
The review session this evening was spent at least half talking about random anecdotes, various in depth meanings and relations. For spending 1 hour in the room, I took only one page of notes - and I am a copious note taker. I usually take more than that in a regular class, and much more than that in the other review sessions. I have never seen a class tank so much as the semester goes on.
DO you think ENTjs can get that way?
Or are INTps? They generally seem more terse.
Outside change of being ENTp, but, not so sure.
