    Default Syncretism, Ne vs Se

    Syncretism

    Reconciliation or fusion of differing systems of belief, as in philosophy or religion, especially when success is partial or the result is heterogeneous.
    Would you say Se types/quadras are more prone to keeping ideas and forms in their original state, compared to syncretizing them with others? That would seem to be the role of Ne quadras/types - yes?

    Or is this way to general. Just something that came up when reading some things today. Comments welcomed.



    It is easy to see how both would be necessary - without each, there would be no form, and no change.

    I consider myself highly syncretist in most things, especially spirituality. Eclecticist, even... in myself, however, I see this as a function of . Matching similar concepts and blending them into an inclusive whole that works for me. I have innate difficulty with unchanging static and rigid forms of belief. It has always seemed much more logical that every system would contain certain amounts of "veracity" that may be gleaned and synthesized with other similar concepts. This is the basis for my underlying belief that there is no "One True Faith". If anything, all of them are refractions, and all contain varying quantities of Truth.

    Of course, according to your proposed Se vs. Ne dichotomy, I'm not sure where I'd fall. Neither of these are ego block for me.

    Perhaps it is not really an Ne / Se thing. Oh well.

    I knew an INFj who's a Christian and rather conservative about her beliefs (conservative as in rigid and unchanging, etc.).
