    I see...but it would still help with my goals in life. I don't want to use it all the time, just be very good at it when I do try to use it consciously. Like im ESTp, right now i've been stressed out because I don't know where im going in life, Ne is my role and would really help me think of new possibilities.

    Role function sucks, best to ignore it at all costs.

    Ask for an Ne-type's advice. Now you solve Ne problems!

    (But seriously, with your role you'll always have to consciously and very deliberately think about how people who are good at Ne use their Ne. You'll never be able to do it by yourself, in my opinion.)

    I do it to get by when it's expected. Other than that I hate treating people with my role, rather than how I want to treat them.

    The thing that gets me into trouble is when I use it as a joke or mock the role function and other people take me seriously; and then suddenly, I'm doing and saying stuff that I'm not. It's getting to the point where I've come to accept the socionics relationships are (for me) about expectations and how people emphasize seriousness and importance in what people say and do. I can see now how Ti/Fe and Fi/Te really do create conflict when it comes down to miscommunication and misplaced expectations with other people.

    Mimic tactics from a super ego your comfortable around.

    That way you dont have to think about it.
    Projection is ordinary. Person A projects at person B, hoping tovalidate something about person A by the response of person B. However, person B, not wanting to be an obejct of someone elses ego and guarding against existential terror constructs a personality which protects his ego and maintain a certain sense of a robust and real self that is different and separate from person A. Sadly, this robust and real self, cut off by defenses of character from the rest of the world, is quite vulnerable and fragile given that it is imaginary and propped up through external feed back. Person B is dimly aware of this and defends against it all the more, even desperately projecting his anxieties back onto person A, with the hope of shoring up his ego with salubrious validation. All of this happens without A or B acknowledging it, of course. Because to face up to it consciously is shocking, in that this is all anybody is doing or can do and it seems absurd when you realize how pathetic it is.

    spend some time with a zany IEE or ILE and it will rub off on you, that's how dual relations work so why not business or superego

    Um, I usually don't bother with my role function. I know it isn't effective, especially when coupled with which would make it much more into details. However, I do analyze things every so often when REALLY ASKED TO DO IT but even then I'm not good at it so I don't bother. I overanalyze or get into modes when I'm stuck on the same meaning or concept for a long time, but if I try not to focus on it, I can be more of my base function and not get lost in the thoughts as much about some thing which doesn't even matter. I do notice that in simple situations when I want to help my ESE friends/relatives, I can make simple analysis to give them a thought to feed on to loosen their emotionality a bit.
