I guess what I hate most about the theory, is that people have this 'naturally inferior/superior' way of viewing the functions, like as if certain functions were just naturally better than others. They don't just do this with the functions they themselves have, but objectively they use it for all functions, creating within it either a superiority complex or an inferiority complex that keeps them distant and removed from the outside world.
It's bothersome because like, objectively they think Te as straight and manly and more 'badass' than Ti, and like....well I'll just show you the list, with my own touch. (I never mean actual homosexuality or straightness when I make these jokes, at least not this time...just more of the cultural perception of the words)
Te: Straight and bad-ass
Ti: Faggy and weak
Se: Straight and bad-ass
Si: Faggy and weak
Ni: Straight and bad-ass
Ne: Faggy and weak
Fi: Straight and bad-ass
Fe: Faggy and weak
Now, this isn't true, functions are so natural in nature that no function can ever be inherently BETTER than another, yet nobody seems to get that. And societies differ a lot from one area to the next, it's just whoever has the power in THAT particular town, the people are going to either be self-confident or not confident depending on the psychological energy of the leaders in the city. I mean really, people like to think they can be 'self-confident' anywhere but I think that's kind of not true, social energy exchange is so potent.
Artists don't really like it when perception becomes reality IMO, naturally artists understand the whole objective reality better than most people. (People think it's the other way around, but it really isn't) It's non-artists and non-talented people that frequently view reality as a thing shaped by their perceptions. But then again almost all laws and rules and 'artificial crap' people create, they're all basing it on their own perceptions. And everybody but them and their little clique pays the price. This is also part of the reason why nobody can forgive sex offenses and when 'wrong stuff happens.' The punishment rarely fits the crime.
