My brain is buzzing so quickly that I need to get all of this down and have my sources before I forget. Dual-seeking function is always talked about. Naturally, we are always going to be seeking out our dual seeking function. HOWEVER, I want to discuss how our subtype seriously effects the input or need for our dual seeking function.
After the Ne seeking vs Se seeking thread and the erotic attitudes threads that have been popin the last couple days. It has got me seriously thinking about the impact of subtypes and the dual seeking function.
I need Ne. I have discussed my liking for my dual seeking function. I naturally search it out and I am pretty responsive to it unconsciously whether I like it or not. However, I often struggled more with my semi dual rather then my mirage partner. If I am so Ne dual seeking, I would respond really well to an IEE naturally. Especially cause irrationals do better with semi-duals then mirages. However, I seem to respond better with my mirages. Why is that?
I have been sensitive about two things: my logic and my intuition. However, I am much more sensitive with my logic then I am my intuition. It is really important for me to be logically sound in my reasoning's and I feel the most sensitive when my intelligence is questioned then my intuition. I need more logical grounded reasoning then I need my head up in the clouds despite valuing and wanting both. I am neurotic as crap and having Ne show my options is great, having that Ti logic to ground me adds more soothing. I naturally look for Ti in life as I do Ne. However, I need Ne diffused with heavy Ti to accept both my dual seeking function through my hidden agenda. A SEI-Si will need much heavier Ne in comparison to me, a SEI-Fe.
I find Ti valuing men extremely attractive. I find heavy Ti-Ne men the most attractive then Ti-Se. In my posts, I think I come across feely but, I am also trying to find and get my logical point across and it heavily showing my need to be guided and signal Ti.
In the erotic thread. @PinKDiGiT18 and @FreelancePoliceman discuss their erotic attitudes as Infantiles. Both are Ne subtype. I have noticed with both of them is that they respond quicker to Si and express needing that grounding first then their dual seeking functions of Fe and Te. I have noticed that they both mention Si like signaling things and then Fe and Te like signaling things. In the thread, they both heavily enjoy needing to go at certain paces and feeling that Si heaviness to bring them down to the earth. I heavily noticed this when Pink was getting Te from her ILI mom and that is her creative function, she responds to it but, it is not as warm as she is to Si. Pink also mentions her attraction to SEI despite them being Fe/Ni valuers.
My buddy @BandD has always expressed his need for more direction and assertion from Se. As an IEI-Ni dom, in his posts he seems to always be signaling this Se dual seeking function in someway FIRST and THEN discussing the ethical aspects of Fe. I remember in the ethical thread you always seem to mention the needing of strong Se first and then END with something in discussion of Fe that you need in SLE's.
@Adam Strange is a LIE-Te. In his posts, they are always very logically structured however, I have noticed that logical lead with logic but always come from caring place or wanting to come from a place of ethics. With your posts on ESI's you always focus on the ethical aspects of them first and then you mention that Se directness that you need from them. Also, from your posts, even when they are very logical, I have noticed that there is an underlining signaling of Fi more then Se when it comes to wanting and caring about others in your own personal view of ethics.
Edit: Also, @Stray Cat
, we shortly discussed the aspect of IEI-Fe and IEI-Ni and how interacting with a SLE-Ti effects the absorption of his dual seeking function of Ni in the erotic attitudes thread.
AKA, Depending on our subtype, I think it heavily matters what our dual seeking function is being heavily filtered through. I think this should be taken into consideration when discussing dual seeking function.
Anyway, these are my thoughts. If you made it through my posts, congrats! I know my posts are long but, here it is.
