"Lecteur, as-tu quelquefois respiré
Avec ivresse et lente gourmandise
Ce grain d'encens qui remplit une église,
Ou d'un sachet le musc invétéré?
Charme profond, magique, dont nous grise
Dans le présent le passé restauré!
Ainsi l'amant sur un corps adoré
Du souvenir cueille la fleur exquise"
My problem with the system of subtypes is that I could never find its first principles. Only the conclusions, which didn't exactly inspire confidence. "Ne subtype is this, while Ti subtype is that." Sure, but whyyy?
Jung mentions the subtypes, it has to do with the access to the subconscious, a creative subtype provides an easier access to the other functions. the theory of subtypes works pretty much the same...
It would still be nice to see a concise/consistent theory of Model A subtypes.
To anyone who has such a theory, I accept electronic donations of knowledge.
Socionics is based on Jung so obviously the core concepts come from him, including subtypes. If you had to research the socionics theory of subtypes "inert vs contac", you'd see those same Jungian concepts applied to Model A.
The same way people dealt with shortcomings throughout human history... learn from your mistakes, and use tools and the help of others to get you through it. Find people who can show you perspective and help you feel better about yourself and grow together with you.
PoLR info is gained through experience specifically, so I wouldn’t worry about making mistakes. Instead see it as a learning curve. No pain no gain.
You can also go to town with HA and other stronger IEs.
Nowadays I don’t suffer issues with my PoLR, I think maybe because I’m fulfilled there and with my HA. IMO the psyche is like a body builder who always skips leg day, and 1D functions are the legs he’s insecure about. But it’s insecurity about the skinny legs that cause him to get jacked and thus look amazing.
