Exposition of Static and Dynamic for Perceiving Functions
Static functions view things as not changing, whereas dynamic functions view things as changing; that much is textbook. Judicious types value Ne and Si - this means that they prefer an unchanging, reliable future, but like to vary their surroundings. Decisive types value Se and Ni - they like a stable environment, but constantly push the future in the way that they want it to go. There is another aspect to this - Judicious types will put strain on a certain future in order to gain some small benefit in the present, trusting that the future will survive the strain and not change in any meaningful way. On the other hand, Decisive types will strain the present to gain future benefit - they trust that the present can survive the pressure, and they can thus obtain a small future benefit without loss. On the other hand, if the stable future is actually threatened, Judicious types will find this more alarming than harm to the present; the future is somethin that is relied upon, and thus is considered sacred. Decisive types, on the other hand, consider the present sacred - although they usually don't thing that anything is at risk in the present, if something is observed to be actually at risk in the present, this is seen as serious. For Decisive types, the present is considered sacred, because it is relied upon to influence the future. Any present danger will be corrected, regardless of the cost to the future. Pe refers to that which is considered sacred, whereas Pi refers to that which is routinely changed.
Exposition of Static and Dynamic for Judging Functions
The same static vs. dynamic difference plays out in the field of logic and emotions - the Jx functions. Merry types rely on their logic to weather advances in knowledge. Because they trust their logic to apply reliably to any circumstance, they are free to seek happiness, so long as this does not threaten the reliability of their logic. While Merry logic is designed to last, it can still be brought under threat, and when the logic is at risk of failing, this is sacred - the illogic must be corrected, regardless of the cost to emotions. Serious types, on the other hand, consider their emotions reliable - they take a more general approach to emotions that allow them to weather changes in environment and culture. This reliability of emotions can be put under strain to affect small improvements in logic; however, if the emotions are seen to actually be under threat, this is considered sacred, and the problem will be corrected regardless of the cost to logic.
Description of my strong function in terms of static and dynamic
I am a member of Alpha Quadra - one who considers logic and the future sacred, but durable enough to strain without risk, and who considers emotions and the present changeable - not to be respected when something lasting is at stake, but to be nurtured and improved even in little ways. I am also a Static type, meaning that I focus on preserving that which is sacred and regulating how much strain may be put on it; I give little attention to less lasting things, though I wish that someone would take up the duty of improving those and give me a reason to strain my reliable things within their limits. In keeping with my role of preserving the stable things, I am capable of "catching" the dynamic forms of logic and intuition and bringing them under control. I prefer to - stable, final logic to developing logic - and when faced when a developing logic that may become outdated, I will attempt to generalize it, and give it a logical form that will withstand the wear of time and emotions. I also prefer to - a stable, reliable future to ever-changing possibilities - and when faced with an uncertain future, I will attempt to ensure a good worst-case scenario, so that this worst-case scenario can be used as a constant while making improvements to the present. Thus I face and counter manifestations of my id elements.
Relation of static and dynamic to supervision
In concluding this line of reasoning, I wonder how this relates to the supervision rings, including the one that I discussed in my previous thread. I consider that and , for instance, do not work together - even and work together only counterpoint, each one offering flexibility of the right sort to sustain the other. However, and - or an - can work together by their shared static nature, producing a shared perspective that is all the more durable for its two sources of stability. Thus, a Beta ST and an Alpha NT can work together to produce that is more reliable than either of them could produce alone, and the complementary nature of, for instance, accepting Ti and producing Ti is better suited for this sort of sharing than is the resonatory nature of, say, LII Ti and LSI Ti.
Further consequences of this analysis
I note that I have deviated significantly from the common view on one point - that of relating , not , to physical variation. I view this as simply a mistake in the previous handling of Socionics on this forum, and its correction helps me to see the purpose of in my psyche as something beyond eating when I'm hungry and showering when I smell bad. Also, this correction will have significant ramifications in changing the way that PoLR is viewed - no static PoLR relates to fearing change; rather it is dynamic types that will find themselves helpless when faced with change of a certain sort, that is, their PoLR, and static types that will be helpless in the face of a particular sort of stability.
The superego block does not need to be feared - this occurs only when the superego elements are related inextricably to their complementary elements. Taken alone, a superego element can as easily be a way to reinforce your ego elements as a way to deny you the right to subvert your id elements.
