    Default Demonstrative Functions

    Tell me about yours. I'm especially interested in that of introverts, since I view mine as an animal instinct, which wouldn't make sense for an introvert.

    I think the demonstrative works in a way subverted by the creative. That's how I understand it, anyway. That's why I try to be diplomatic (Fi) and forgiving (Fe).

    I'll be honest. I had to look mine up.

    Contrary to type, I wouldn't say I'm all that skilled at , really. Futuristic, sci-fi techno-babble really perks my interest; but history puts me to sleep. I can often see the step-wise process of how things change over time, but it feels very foreign to me. I don't like all that structure with my change. I wanna float around in it, grabbing info and stuff from all over the place.

    This quote from WikiSocion really hits home with me, though: "He usually dismisses supernatural claims as being silly, wishful thinking, unless they happen to be related to the very specific religion he feels inclined to believe in..."

    That's me to a T. I'm an evangelical Christian, and I'm not really tied down to a single denomination or set of dogma, or whatever. Apart from that, though, all things religion, para-religion, pseudo-religion, or flat-out occult really creep me out (and always have). I'm passionate about my faith and genuinely interested in others' (whatever it may be); but, in that one little sphere for me, Anything Different = Scary. I'm rigid, inflexible, skeptical, detached. I'd never thought of it before from a Socionics perspective; but, long as I can remember, it's always made me reeeally uncomfortable.

    The vibe I got from demonstrative is:

    obvious, comes about when needed, unconscious so its nothing that captures interest

    Since I wrote it (on the basis of all the useful socionics sources I could find on Te in the SLE), and since it makes complete sense to me:

SLEs will often question the authenticity or reliability of informational sources, preferring not to use those which are doubtful or which have been proven wrong in the past. They enjoy learning about a wide variety of things, and are motivated by the prospect of rewards and status; they like to prove their authority and skills e.g. through a large amount of academic awards or extra curricular certificates.

    SLEs are very practical, hard-working individuals. They know how to utilize their time effectively in order to reach any given goal, and have no problem discerning efficiency and utility from incompetence and uselessness. Nonetheless, they retain a kind of "don't care" attitude when it comes to productivity and effectiveness. They feel that it is a waste of time to sit around and discuss efficiency, and would rather act effectively. SLEs may playfully mock those who they believe are "obsessed" with productivity, efficiency or effective action.

    SLEs often assume the role of someone who is always ready to assist people in their practical affairs, even to the point of others' annoyance or offense to the SLE's obtrusiveness (which is simply enthusiasm to the SLE). They enjoy receiving thanks for their services, and take full responsibility for their actions. Their intentions towards others in this area are generally always good.
    It's not perfect, but it does make a lot of sense.
    Ideas don't determine who's right. Power determines who's right. And I have the power. So I'm right.

    My demonstrative function is . I've seen ESEs act the same way about it that I do. We can easily get fierce. is often used to protect . Personally, it is easier for me to activate my base function, and for someone else to activate my demonstrative function. They can do this differnt ways. If someone activates their own and I'm in the mood, I may retaliate with my own. If someone attacks my , it'll often activate my . I can also activate it myself, which is probably the only way to get without tagging along.
