    EIIs - conspiracies / plotting / psychological trouble

    ILIs - logical / observational / inductive humor

    SEEs - Making fun of people's expressions / laughing blatantly in a pretentious manner

    ESEs - Acting tough


    Those are the ones I've seen.

    and an ILI in motion is probably not an ILI

    I feel like it's very easy for me to mock uses of Fe because they're so easy for me to spot. It's probably the unvalued IE I understand the most, how it works and how people use it (although I can't 100% replicate it). The fact that I can kinda see it, or at least that I can see *something* that looks superficially like Fe, means that I can kinda poke fun at it and think weird of it inside my head.

    Is this true for you and people you know? Why do you think so? How does it show up?
    Haha, you're trying to learn more about demonstrative function humor by posting on an internet forum.

    idk about myself, but this reminds me of my IEE friend who will sometimes do this sort of faux cute niceness thing...like after having lunch together she'll be like, "i had such a pleasant time talking to you! i can't wait to see you again next week!" in this formal, practiced-sounding voice thats obviously tongue in cheek. its cute.

    Ok ok... since you're actually being serious.

    In the past couple months, in studying each function more in-depth than ever before, I actually use people's 8th functions to type them fairly often. You can type people by their humor!!! Why do they laugh at something... how do they perceive it as funny, or ridiculous?

    The 8th function supports your creative function, which of course supports your leading function. So a person's sense of humor actually gives big clues into 3 different functions.

    In noticing it more and more lately, I would even go as far to say, it's easier to identify someone's 8th function sometimes, than their 1st or 2nd. Demonstrative function for the win.

    Not sure what you mean by "practiced sounding voice" and "obviously tongue in cheek" but that sounds EXACTLY like something i would say... in fact i said something like that earlier today after having lunch with a good friend (except i wont be seeing her next week ).

    i think people do take the Demonstrative function seriously, but only to themselves. if people feel pressured to openly demonstrate use of their Demonstrative, they start to feel resentful and annoyed, because your Demonstrative function isn't something you really want to share with other people (unlike your Ego functions.)

    this is one of the reasons people aren't compatible with their Conflictor, because your Conflictor's Dual-seeking function is your Demonstrative. with enough prolonged contact with your Conflictor, you eventually start to feel pressured to share information from your Demonstrative (because your Conflictor displays need for it), which ends up making you feel annoyed and resentful. that's my experience, anyway.

    so yeah, i don't really agree with the whole "relax and have fun with your 8th function" idea.

    I'm not entirely sure about this but I think I use a lot when I get annoyed with people I work with on projects. The problems are usually centred around the approach to the subject, and leads to me giving up my original approach for something along the lines they're asking for, which means I oversimplify, abandon internal consistency, and use obscure sources to support my arguments.

    EDIT: And yeah I usually take seriously, it's more when I feel that it's being misused or that people completely abandon

    Not sure how I make fun of , but I know how I make fun of Base. OK, there are too many things to tell, but one of them is laughing at work "milestones", the belief that you'll finish something not really clear in time. I never respected such thing because it can't be respected, unless you refine something, do known things with different degrees of precision, etc, just not when you deal with the unexpected. I realize their importance sometimes, and sometimes planning and scheduling actually works, but like I said, it some sort of hocus-pocus, there's no guarantee. People who take these things for granted and are sure they can predict the outcome of a complex action amuse me (esp their obviously predictable failures), I see the advantage of being determined to finish something in time rather motivational than functional.
