    Default DCNH question

    So they say that depending on which subtype, a certain pair of functions are strengthened (eg. Si-Ni), as well as either your base, creative, role, or PoLR.
    So, in a lot of cases, 3 functions are strengthened? That seems like a lot. it's not very.. idk. elegant. am i looking at it wrong?

    In the example of IEI-H, they would have strengthened Si, Ni, as well as Te. Is that right? Or is it just Ni and Te?
    And this is also why an IEI-H would most likely be IEI-Ni, because if Te is strengthened, then so is Ti (??), then Fe is less strong?

    Another point of confusion for me is:
    suppose we have an SLE-C. Their Se (and Ne?) is therefore strengthened, they're also more likely to be SLE-Se if I understood correctly. But the creative subtype strengthens the creative Ti too! What!

    I think I understood it that it doesn't actually strengthen these functions but might make it appear as though they are strengthened. Or like, the user will be more comfortable in the field of those strengthened functions.

    Like a dominant Ti person doesn't become good at Fe and Te but becomes good at using Ti to lead people in a way that is only usually reserved for Fe/Te leads.
    A harmonising Fe person doesn't become good at Si but uses their Fe to create soothing and pleasant emotional environments.


    As for strengthening functions - again, I'm not sure I took that literally as a strength. Someone more well-versed in DCNH can correct me if I'm wrong but I interpreted it as the subtypes means that you just emphasize certain parts of your type but doesn't actually affect their strength. Like an IEI-H might try to adapt to using Te for the sake of harmony but it doesn't mean they're actually good at it. And if they are, it's just from practice and not because the IE has a reinforced strength.

    "Si-Ni"
    strengthened S leads to weakened N
    both E/I kinds of functions develop simultaneously. that's why they both are always strong or weak

    Gulenko's subtypes is heretical nonsense

    The strengthened functional pairs seem to be emergent phenomena. Not directly connected to model A. For example: a H subtype is actually more sensitive to the environment, so something has happened that is beyond model A.

    The other thing is the tendency base-dominant, creative-creative, role-normalizing etc. This seems to be directly connected to model A

    You really need to observe people to get an answer. Most people are normalizing but there are plenty of the other 3 around in everyday life. So just observe more. Or ask Gulenko.
    A true sense-perception certainly exists, but it always looks as though objects were not so much forcing their way into the subject in their own right as that the subject were seeing things quite differently, or saw quite other things than the rest of mankind. As a matter of fact, the subject perceives the same things as everybody else, only, he never stops at the purely objective effect, but concerns himself with the subjective perception released by the objective stimulus.

    This clarification helped.
