    Default Richochet functions

    Has anyone else noticed that sometimes it's hard to distinguish the functions someone is using because they use two functions together to simulate a third?

    For example, someone may use Fe with Ti, and it's almost like Te. The Ti seems to ricochet off of the Fe, so the person ends up with an Ej function that's T but not quite Te.

    Or, a person may use Ti and Ne together and then put Fe on top of it, so it looks as if it's NiFe, but the Ni is really synthesized from two other functions.

    I know this may sound off the wall, but either you've observed something that looks like this, or you haven't.

    It's always like that.

    Exactly. That's also one reason why so many people, unknowingly, get into bad relationships.

    A few of the most common "ricochets", to use your term --

    - Se + Ti being mistaken for Te
    - irrational Fi + Ne or Se being mistaken for Fe
    - Fi + Se being mistaken for Fe
    - Te being mistaken for Se + Fe

    etc

    Perhaps dichotomies can explain those better.

    That's why one has to be careful when typing someone; and you have to use all possible information to arrive at a type, so you can better evaluate which functions the other person is more likely to be using, "reading the person's mind", so to speak.
