Regressive role – Introverted Feeling
The regressive oral character is a very idealistic one. They refuse to acknowledge a world where the principle of lust is not in force. They shy away from rational thinking, because the notion that every action has consequence, contradicts with the principle of lust according to which all needs are immediately satisfied. Instead they harbour an idealised inconsistent view of how the world works, and they will defend this view (since it is based on the principle of lust). They are therefore drawn towards the supernatural, since this requires no consistent logical explanation. They also believe that everything has a predetermined purpose, so that their actions don’t chance anything or have any negative consequence. It might even be the will of God when things happen. God is almighty, only he decides how the world works. And since God is good, he makes the world is ideal. That might sound inconsistent because Gods decisions must also have negative consequence. However it does not sound that way in the ears of the introverted oral. Still God knows magic, is magic, so they don’t!
Faith can move great mountains some say. At least it can make you fell better, which I find very recognisable. Sometimes believing is all we have, and certainly it has led to many great revolutions and regime-changes over time!
In opposition to the regressive anal person’s often very realistic or pessimistic view of a situation, the introverted oral will often have a more optimistic view of a situation. It refuses to see the negative, which would otherwise contradict with the principle of lust and make the regressive oral feel bad. This optimism often affects others making them feel better as well.
