Introverted Ethics: Primary Function
Fi – As an introvert she is primarily orientated toward her own installations and stimulations.
Her consciousness keynotes the norms of morals, the rules of hospitality, the need for conducting a definite mode of life, which , from her point of view, is the only one worthy.
I'm not sure about the rules of hospitality but I need a moral way to live. I care a lot about living with integrity. That's why I always have my Bible on me, ready to preach.
Ethics of relations is her strongest function. She understands, from the earliest age, what is good and what is bad. As a moralist she considers it necessary that the laws of behavior, the moral norms, be clearly formulated and strictly observed.
I was a real rule enforcer when I was a kid, yeah. Always telling people off.
Especially important to her are deemed the traditions and structure, which, throughout centuries, have been accumulated by humanity. She is confident that these traditions, and also the rituals that serve as necessary reference points, are there to help people in any situation in life. ESI assumes that these traditions must never be stored away or violated but with great care be transmitted from one generation to another.
I don't care about traditions actually. A lot of Se types (including my ESTp friend) just break the rules to fit their ambitions.
She usually adheres to the norms of behavior and morals taken up in society.
Yeah well, usually I do but sometimes I just go crazy on society which is sometimes too boring. Se types like to spice things up a little bit by shaking things around a little. Sometimes by cracking rude inappropriate jokes about others' or their own appearance/behaviour.
If she sees someone disregard them she may openly express negative judgment towards them.
What does this mean?
Considers herself obligated to fight the bad inclinations and defects of the people nearest to her.
I'm confused by this. What?
She can carry on with this firmly for a long time, using all resources accessible to her. The ESI is very emotional but usually forces herself to hide her feelings, in view of this she sometimes is perceived as steady, even cold, by strangers. The nearer someone gets to her the more her emotionality is revealed. If she is confident that the small circle of people, close to her, love and value her then she can feel completely happy.
Yeah I hide my feelings except when I'm singing.
People think I'm emotionless
Me and my INTp father have these stupid games of practicing expressions.
Me: Pretends to cry
Father: Pull a funny face!
Me: Pulls a stupid looking face
It is generally very important that she has someone next to her to which she can readily dedicate herself, but in this case wishes that her efforts be valued, otherwise she can fall into depression, or even cause an argument.
Yeah this is me. I am often giving gifts to my ESFj brother who doesn't seem to appreciate it. I am always wondering what goes inside his quacky head.
She remembers goodness, tries without fail to express appreciation towards those that are good to her, but she also remembers evil. In regards to such offenders ESI takes an irreconcilable position and tries at any cost to punish and take vengeance on them.
I'm very vengeful actually....... Once pulled my ESFj brother's hair for playing mind and emotional games with me ^^;
That hurt him deeply.
Otherwise I just make rude remarks about people's makeup.
Like my ESFp friend LOL
Emotionalism, in the ESI, is developed also in her love of art, especially of music. Frequently she loves to play a musical instrument, with pleasure attends concerts, and herself loves to sing.
I love to sing. I also love to play the piano!
Does that make me a minstril of an INFp now?
Se Extroverted Sensing: Creative Function
Se – ESI conducts her moral program into life with the persistence of volitional sense.
Ever since I was young my motto was "Never give up".
My friend Bradley and Philip made this into "If you can't fly, try try harder!"
But, in general, it is difficult to recognize this installation at a close distance since in practice it is disguised by external conformity, she ably feels and comprehends to mood of another and their attitude towards what is occurring.
Yeah this is me. I am extremely sensitive to other people's moods.
For a time she tries to tune, to exhibit delicacy, but eventually develops the tendency towards volitional pressure, especially in terms of putting her principles into practice against encountered obstacles.
I am a very gentle person but I'm very pushy.
In such cases are developed the concealed (only at first glance) qualities of exacting demand and persistence.
Very demanding of myself and others. This is different from the INFj's idealistic demands of others and their character. I can call someone a slut without expecting much from them. Some ENTps are very scared of this joke that I pull on them actually. INFjs would just pull off a typical NF delta tone and say "why don't you work harder on your relationships. They are a mess". Makes you feel like shit every time. Fabio agrees.
She is confident in her rightness. Finds it necessary to subordinate others to herself – through this she experiences a feeling of satisfaction but she does not openly demonstrate this.
Only if I have the Bible in hand actually.
Then my friend the ESTj (Te subtype) and I just have stupid forceful arguments about what is right and wrong in our church.
Her strong sense is represented in her economic activity: she’s zealous, honest and conscientious, especially in domestic circumstances. She generally keeps a lot of products in storage (i.e. buried, in a shed, garage). Always makes sure there are reserves. She makes sure that there is a minimum of waste, whether it is remaining floor panels or remainders of food products.
Um how do you know I have so much stuff buried in the garage? HAVE YOU BEEN INSIDE MY ROOM?
For some reason people are always getting me to take out the waste!
This is just imposed because we are such busybodies everyone. It is a misunderstanding.
However I don't like to be wasteful in my spendings, this is for sure. Neither does my INTp father. Neither does Fabio he says?
This thrift contributes to allow her to accumulate a sufficient means in order to buy a necessary quantity of articles in daily life, which symbolize welfare – gifts for others, household machines etc. She obtains everything via honest labor and scrupulous economy, not by reckless adventure or by dishonest mechanizations – such would contradict her moral principles.
I'm always buying household electronics. They make my day. I also love buying gifts for others and making beautiful and funny gifts for them. This is when I use my creative Ne side 8)
I don't like getting things that I don't deserve. My motto has always been to work hard for my pay. Self earned money is the best. And most fulfilling.
Descriptions of the weak functions:
Ne Extroverted Intuition: Place of Least Resistance
Ne – The weakness of this function is developed in the fact that while the ESI is aware of the external manifestations of that occurring she badly visualizes the internal considerations.
So she finds it difficult to comprehend the internal world of another person. In view of this she usually very thoroughly selects her future husband by means of matching up his moral qualities with how they correspond to her requirements and having him explain the discrepancies.
It often occurs that she underestimates herself and her positive qualities, her conscience suffers, she considers herself insufficiently formed, capable, and/or talented. She responds very painfully to others observations in this matter.
I hate IQ tests. Whenever some ENTp or INFj or INTj plays a joke on me that my IQ is ONLY 74 when it is 160 officially I get mega depressed. This is no fun joke guys.
Ti Introverted Logic: Role Function
Ti – In beginning any work, ESI collect and prepares material,
I have a lot of tools for gathering material.
attentively and scrupulously thinks over everything, and then acts energetically and decisively. However, the weakness of this function is developed in the fact that great expenditures of her time and resources are required in her preparatory work,
I hate doing this so much that I just don't bother anymore actually. I just ask God for NiTe information instead. haha. These days I am just NiTe seeking lol.
and she is not characterized by the ability to easily, and naturally, make rational decisions. She also finds it difficult to prioritize and separate the main thing from the secondary: she works as much as possible and does not always commensurate what she’s doing with other plans, thus it often occurs that she over strains herself.
At Work and in the Home
This is offensive.
The ESI’s strong sense is noticeably manifested in the business sphere: her working place is wonderfully organized, each tool has its distinct place, nothing is ever scattered.
This is me mostly.
I try not to keep things scattered but I have 101020332952048504287023948 commitments and entertainments around the city to attend to, from playing computers to researching stuff (like dieting news) on the internet to prayer meetings to Bible studies to clubs and societies.
In regards to her work she is, as a rule, very responsible and exact, and she requires the same from others.
I don't even want to talk about this. It's so annoyingly true.
She is intolerant to negligence and looseness. She may develop strictness towards those that badly manage their work.
Actually this is just towards myself.
But if there are no reasons for dissatisfaction she prefers a soft and genuine style of contact.
This is not me towards myself but yes this is me towards others.
After proving to be at the head of a collective, ESI feels a vast responsibility.
Proven leader of children.
Her weak intuition serves as the reason for her low self-esteem and also does not contribute to understanding the concealed possibilities of each of her colleagues: instead she remains more alert towards the negative possibilities with respect to herself.
I hate it -- really hate it -- when my ESFj and ESTj friends lie to me about all the bad possibilities behind a person's motives or event or the truth. I only want THE definite truth not EVERY POSSIBLE FUCKING TRUTh ARRHGGHERQIPJERWPOTIQ#PORCKPEKERSQEPTGERTGPEOKERKE POG
She feels better being a non-formal leader, sharing responsibility with someone else.
Yes I like to delegate.
Since ESI finds it difficult to forecast events, to see the distant prospect, she gives her primary attention to examining tactical missions, which she can successfully solve. She more easily works under stable conditions. Any uncertainty makes her nervous; she reserves time for decision-making as she does not like being liable for failures. Once a decision is accepted she acts peacefully and firmly in bringing the work to its end.
I hate catching the bus without my INTp dad. He makes me time my catching the bus better. He is just so... calm about time.
I am always running to be on time and getting panicky about it.
I even had panic attacks when I was running late.
She uses her methods of conviction with respect to her coworkers, she appeals to a feeling of duty, conscientiousness, and honesty. She behaves peacefully and genuinely with others so long as they are not hostilely disposed towards her. In such cases she develops firmness and strictness in stating her position.
With respect to relationships she is honest, considerate, capable of deep selfless feeling. But if her partner betray her she will break relations. She does not pardon treachery.
The ESI’ moral program prioritizes concerns regarding her family’s surroundings. An impression is sometimes created that she surrounds herself, and a small circle of people close to her, with an invisible wall. Nothing is too much for these people. She literally serves them, can dedicate all her resources towards this and makes this the meaning of her life.
Serving people really is the meaning of my life, even though I don't get that much money out of it. Yes, I am Gamma and I am a very calculating and shrewd and mercantile person, however, I am extremely altruistic at the same time. I do things for the betterment of society. God's kingdom >>> all.
It sometimes occurs that by excessively offering her resources to others she is not able to make something necessary for herself. In such cases irritation and dissatisfaction are accumulate within her, these feelings are held within her for many months. Such prolonged stress may lead to unexpected explosions; she may begin to suspect close ones of dishonesty, may see in their activities a certain evil intent. In such situations it is necessary that others show her kindness, patience, and the willingness to move forward; this will help her return to her lost equilibrium.
Summary of Functions
Ummm I don't like to talk about the evil intents that everyone may have towards me. I feel spied on and cursed by other people all the time. It's irratinoal, it's ridiculous I know, but I can't help it :x Bad Ni.
1. Fi – The moralist, considers it important to observe moral statutes, traditions and rituals are important for they help when experiencing difficulties. Very emotional but these emotions are often deeply concealed. If she feels her kindness is being taken advantage of she can unexpectedly lash out and shout.
2. Se – Uses external conformity to hide her inherent demands and persistence, which sooner or later will let themselves be known. Loves order and cleanliness and devotes much resources to achieving such. Proceeds from the general principle that purity guarantees health.
3. Ne – She badly sees the concealed motives and possibilities in both events and people. Is capable of assuming illusion or slyness in others where it does not exist. Weakly forecasts the course of events, especially of distant ones. Most frequently only sees the immediate profit. (I like to do things immediately rather than procrastinate. Unless I'm much too tired to bother)
4. Ti – Abstract theories are only dealt with, with difficulty. (I used to study Chemistry and that was a real headache but I managed to pass it with much study and hard work anyway. I just use persistence and willpower to conquer my Ti weaknesses. However, I cannot say the same for Ne. I feel as if I have little potential to fulfill my dreams and I have no role except being a housewife because the Bible says so and I don't even feel qualified to be a teacher anymore. I used to dream big and explore various options for myself but God has been limiting my options by closing so many doors on me that I just want one direction but in the end I am just really not sure where to go, at all, in terms of my career. Just talking about this makes me depressed. Also I hate having multiple choices for a husband. I just want to know whom I should marry.)
Conscientious, she nevertheless does not know how to make her work technologically efficient or effective. She attains successes exclusively due to her perseverance with great expenditures of time and resources.
Actually this is Te which I excel at. I am very very good with technology and efficiency. The latter part is 100% true.
ESI is the innate worker of the social sphere. Wonderfully realizes abilities in medicine, (I am sharing health tips on language websites right now. I specialize in diets and stress management) in any economic activity. Loves animals and agricultural work, finds a worthy place in the military, as a teacher and educator of young people – knows how to create good living conditions for those under care.
Right now I am taking good care of my house for people to feel welcome here. It looks beautiful to me. Makes me less stressed that way.
