Can one's childhood and upbringing affect one's subtype, even shift it to the other side?
I ask because I think I shifted from LII-Ti to LII-Ne. In my childhood, I was primarily about Ti. I don't think I was nearly as interested in Ne type stuff. I don't think I got a whole lot of positive reinforcement for my use of Ti, especially when younger. People were turned off by it. When I got older- in my teens and beyond, I discovered that I got more positive reinforcement for my use of Ne. So I think I ended up downplaying my Ti and emphasized Ne more. Note that this could also be due in part to MBTI functional development of MBTI INTPs- the auxilary Ne doesn't start to really develop under around teenage years. (Not all MBTI INTPs are socionics LII of course but I suspect it is the most common socionics type for MBTI INTP).
I wonder if this the case for others who have the creative subtype as opposed to the base subtype as well. I'm just talking about 2 subtype system here, not DCNH creative subtype, which is something different.
So for instance, would an ILE-Ti might be more Ne like when younger but learned to compensate with Ti if for whatever reason felt like there wasn't enough positive reinforcement with Ne?
I sometimes wonder if the base subtype is a more 'pure' and 'natural' form of that socionics type, and fits closer to the stereotype of what you'd associate with that type. For an LII, I think Ti subtype would come closer to that than Ne. After all your base is your strongest function, it would make sense to emphasize that more. So I wonder if putting more emphasis on the creative function is an adaptive strategy of a sort.
