So I was reading this the other day, and I incorperated it with some other thoughts.....
In being at a young age where I am trying to figure out what to do with my life, I am torn between two things. One of which seems to be my inherent purpose -- if you read midway down that link, you will see it somewhat illustrated in the "Psychic lopsidedness and it's implications" section. (The other 'thing' being the knowledge that my world view is, at least inherntly, limited by my leading function and ego block, etc. By how my psyche has developed). The real question of this thread is... how much of that 'knowledge'/understanding should I incorperate in my life and the decisions I make?
It really is tricky, because it is sort of a way of understanding the system. Debuging/rerouting the game so that there are alternate, not necessarily linear plot developments. I don't know how much to toy with it at this time.
I can clearly see now, at this point in my life, a way in which I would want to subjugate the world to 'pure' . However, the more I learn about personality types, I can begin to see the countereffects. Or can play out and anticipate how, say, an ESFp would react or think of what I am going to say. I suppose there is an avenue of further development, that would involve doing things that incorperate, at least theoretically, the knowledge of/awaereness of other fucntions, or at least that they exist, even if I can only see it (the world) through my goggles.
So I guess I am just wondering how others think about this, especially in terms of someone like myself, who would like to have an idea of 'how I should go about this life', and/or a plan, etc. For instance - should I still go about with my 'instinctual draw' of trying to right some things about the world? To make the world more structurally logical? Is that, sort of, my destiny?
Or is that really just some illusion to be understood and overcome in the process of moving on to some greater understanding? I am not sure yet how I feel about this. (And yes, I can see my thoughts reflecting and refracting upong themselves; the contrived-ness of my own psyche creating this view, this specification and situation, and then wondering how these paramaters were set in the first place -- when in fact I set them as such) But I've still got my questions anyways!!!
