    Default Functional Breakdown-- Identity, Kindred, and Look-A-Like

    Identity

    Base and Base Interaction

    Your Identical shares your Base function. This discovery will likely delight and excite both of you. But, as the phrase “too much of a good thing” suggests, it will be easy for you and your Identical to expend too much time and energy pursuing Base interests together, while neglecting other important aspects of your psyches.

    Creative and Creative Interaction

    Your Identical shares your Creative function, making him a like-minded, comfortable friend in this area. You may find yourselves naturally dividing duties in this area, based on the situation.

    Role and Role Interaction

    Your Identical shares your Role function. At times when one or both of you feel pressure upon your (also shared) Vulnerable function, you may begin asserting yourselves in your Role in defense of your Vulnerability. At other times, pressure upon your Role may cause undue negative focus in this area, requiring the other to bring you back down to a more stable state.

    Vulnerable/PoLR and Vulnerable/PoLR Interaction

    Your Identical shares your Vulnerable function. Just as a person enjoys coming across individuals who share his interests, you will probably find some relief—a sense of “I’m not alone after all”—upon discovering your Identical’s shared weakness.

    This will become impractical, however, in situations requiring one or the other of you to engage in a Vulnerable-related activity. You may find yourselves glancing nervously at each other, each waiting for the other to make the first move. If this goes on for too long with no relief, one of two things is likely to happen: either the two of you will decide to put your heads together, utilizing your shared strengths to work around the issue; or else one or both of you may end up falling into a frustrated expression of your shared Role functions in defense of your Vulnerability.

    Suggestive/Dual-Seeking and Suggestive/Dual-Seeking Interaction

    Your Identical shares your Suggestive function. Since neither of you has much capacity in this area, but both of you need it, this can result in the adoption of a few different methods to acquire what you need: You can of course get what you need from somebody else, but this may not be practical in cases where you and your Identical are supposed to be sticking together and helping each other; you can ignore the need for a time, though eventually your ability to function effectively in other areas will suffer; or you can draw on your experience of what has worked for you in the past, and share these experiences with your Identical in hopes that they will help him, too.

    Mobilizing/Hidden Agenda and Mobilizing/Hidden Agenda Interaction

    Your Identical shares your Mobilizing function, or Hidden Agenda. Although weak, you naturally feel the urge to improve yourself in the area of your HA. As a result, you will find yourself putting a good deal of time and effort into your HA.

    For you and your Identical to both be working in this area at the same time, however, is likely to be regarded as redundant. As a result, you will naturally fall into a division of duties in this area. As soon as one of you begins exercising your shared HA, the other is likely to begin slacking off, figuring that “If he’s doing it, then why should I?” Likewise, as the one currently laboring in HA pursuits begins to tire, the other may prepare to pick up where the first left off.

    Ignoring/Observing and Ignoring/Observing Interaction

    Your Identical shares your Ignoring function. This being the case, you and your Identical will probably feel disinclined to ever spend any time together focused in this area. And when you do, it will probably only be in criticizing or critiquing those who actually seem to take it all seriously.

    Demonstrative and Demonstrative Interaction

    Your Identical shares your Demonstrative function. Since the Demonstrative function tends to manifest itself spontaneously with little conscious thought, you are often not even aware of your own Demonstrative manifestations, and may find yourself a little embarrassed to acknowledge them if and when they are finally pointed out.

    With your Identical, you are most likely to fall into the trap of hypocritical criticism in regards to your shared Demonstrative nature. Alternately, when one of you falls into a Demonstrative display, the other may inadvertently join in, which serves to “egg on” the first further, and back and forth until one of you finally recovers enough to point out, “Look at us, we’re being so silly.”

    Kindred

    Base and Base Interaction

    Your Kindred shares your Base function. This discovery will likely delight and excite both of you. But, as the phrase “too much of a good thing” suggests, it will be easy for you and your Kindred to expend too much time and energy pursuing Base interests together, while neglecting other important aspects of your individual psyches.

    Creative and Vulnerable/PoLR Interaction

    You may find yourself in awe of your Kindred’s abilities in the area of his Creative function. At times when the two of you are busy enjoying a Base-focused interaction, the fact that your Kindred’s Creative is your Vulnerable will probably not be regarded as any serious problem. At times when your Kindred focuses more heavily in his Creative, however, you may attempt to withdraw yourself from your Kindred’s presence in order to avoid drawing attention to your Vulnerability.

    If your Kindred does manage to pressure you in this area, you may in turn try attacking his Vulnerability in order to avert the attention away from your own.

    Role and Role Interaction

    Your Kindred shares your Role function. At times when you feel pressure upon your Vulnerable function, you may begin asserting yourself in your Role in defense of your Vulnerability. This may in turn cause your Kindred to feel pressure upon his Role, which the two of you share. Fortunately, since you are both weak and tire easily in this area, any conflict arising from Role-Role interaction is likely to be short, after which you and your Kindred will be inclined to revert back to your more comfortable and fulfilling Base-Base interaction.

    Suggestive/Dual-Seeking and Suggestive/Dual-Seeking Interaction

    Your Kindred shares your Suggestive function. Since neither of you has much capacity in this area, but both of you need it, this can result in the adoption of a few different methods to acquire what you need: You can of course get what you need from somebody else, but this may not be practical in cases where you and your Kindred are supposed to be sticking together and helping each other; you can ignore the need for a time, though eventually your ability to function effectively in other areas will suffer; or you can draw on your experience of what has worked for you in the past, and share these experiences with your Kindred in hopes that they will help him, too.

    Mobilizing/Hidden Agenda and Demonstrative Interaction

    When your Kindred engages heavily in his Hidden Agenda, you may experience a range of reactions as influenced by your Demonstrative perspective, from being mildly amused and even joining in, to annoyance with your Kindred for taking his HA so seriously.

    Likewise, when you engage in you Hidden Agenda, your Kindred will hardly take your efforts seriously and you may feel offended by this at times. Alternately, when his Demonstration manifests, you may find yourself feeling gratified by your Kindred’s generosity in finally seeming to take an interest in something so important to you. However, this apparent interest in likely to be short-lived, and at the end of the interaction your Kindred may even express some embarrassment at having become so heavily involved.

    Ignoring/Observing and Ignoring/Observing Interaction

    Your Kindred shares your Ignoring function. This being the case, you and your Kindred will probably feel disinclined to ever spend any time together focused in this area. And when you do, it will probably only be in criticizing or critiquing those who actually seem to take it all seriously.

    Look-A-Like/Business

    Base and Role Interaction

    As your Role function, at times you may find your Look-A-Like’s focus on his Base function to be excessive. At the same time, you find yourself in secret admiration of his ability to spend so much time and energy in activities which so quickly exhaust you. You probably will not be inclined to mention this admiration to you Look-A-Like very often, however, in apprehension that he may then invite you to partake in his activities yourself, in order to help you “get better” at them.

    You may find your Look-A-Like’s Base strength to be quite useful in Role-related situations where you feel inadequate or disinclined.

    Creative and Creative Interaction

    Your Look-A-Like shares your Creative function, making him a like-minded, comfortable friend in this area. You may find yourselves naturally dividing duties in this area, based on the situation.

    Vulnerable/PoLR and Vulnerable/PoLR Interaction

    Your Look-A-Like shares your Vulnerable function. Just as a person enjoys coming across individuals who share his interests, you will probably find some relief—a sense of “I’m not alone after all”—upon discovering your Look-A-Like’s shared weakness.

    This will become impractical, however, in situations requiring one or the other of you to engage in a Vulnerable-related activity. You may find yourselves glancing nervously at each other, each waiting for the other to make the first move. If this goes on for too long with no relief, one of two things is likely to happen: either the two of you will decide to put your heads together, utilizing your individual strengths to work around the issue; or else one or both of you may end up falling into a frustrated expression of your individual Role functions in defense of your Vulnerability.

    Suggestive/Dual-Seeking and Ignoring/Observing Interaction

    What you most need psychologically in support of your Base but struggle to provide for yourself, your Look-A-Like happens to be capable—but disinclined—to provide for you, it being his Ignoring function. Probably the best you can expect from him in this area is some good advice and occasional coaching as you attempt to sort out your own Dual-Seeking issues.

    Mobilizing/Hidden Agenda and Mobilizing/Hidden Agenda Interaction

    Your Look-A-Like shares your Mobilizing function, or Hidden Agenda. Although weak, you naturally feel the urge to improve yourself in the area of your HA. As a result, you will find yourself putting a good deal of time and effort into your HA.

    For you and your Look-A-Like to both be working in this area at the same time, however, is likely to be regarded as redundant. As a result, you will naturally fall into a division of duties in this area. As soon as one of you begins exercising your shared HA, the other is likely to begin slacking off, figuring that “If he’s doing it, then why should I?” Likewise, as the one currently laboring in HA pursuits begins to tire, the other may prepare to pick up where the first left off.

    Demonstrative and Demonstrative Interaction

    Your Look-A-Like shares your Demonstrative function. Since the Demonstrative function tends to manifest itself spontaneously with little conscious thought, you are often not even aware of your own Demonstrative manifestations, and may find yourself a little embarrassed to acknowledge them if and when they are finally pointed out.

    With your Look-A-Like, you are most likely to fall into the trap of hypocritical criticism in regards to your shared Demonstrative nature. Alternately, when one of you falls into a Demonstrative display, the other may inadvertently join in, which serves to “egg on” the first further, and back and forth until one of you finally recovers enough to point out, “Look at us, we’re being so silly.”
