    Inferior Ni and Te descriptions needed

    If someone could describe inferior Ni and Te, I would be very happy. The more detailed, the better. Also I would like to know how in general sense inferior function feels.

    @The red spirit
    So to understand inferior Ni one must understand Ni in its entirety. I'm not an INTP and I don't prefer the whole 5 paragraph explanation style so ill keep it short but sweet.

    Where as Se likes to enjoy and experience life through physical sensations in the "present and now" Ni does not. Ni prefers to interpret information around current physical sensations. Ni asks "Why? How? What is the Cause and Effect of this situation?". The cost of this in the strong Ni user is their mind/body ignores the actual physical sensations and events presented to them and instead chases the underlying reasons behind them.

    Inferior Ni types(Such as the ESFP ESTP)are so in tune with how the present physical world is affecting them that they tend to completely tune out the "Behind the scenes". This becomes a problem when the Se dominate type actually tries to find the reasoning behind things. They might incorrectly assume something about a situation or find themselves unable to come to a stable conclusion.

    Example I use in one of my videos--
    Jack waves to Sally everyday. One day Jack does not wave to Sally.
    Ni dom Sally- I remember Jack has been very busy lately. Studying for finals. He is most likely stressed and his mind was elsewhere.
    Se dom Sally(Inferior Ni)-Why didn't Jack wave to me? Is he mad at me? He looked upset. I must have done something wrong.


    Inferior Te is going to present itself as a struggle with bringing tasks to completion in a scheduled and timely manner. The Fi dominate user might outburst with things they think to be fact based on objective information without even attempting to fact check that information.

    @Asura I'm currently reading this tumbrl page Accurate Typing: Tertiary Temptation - Cognitive Function Theory (it's not about inferior, but you can find info about inferior too)and find it informative. What do you think about it? Is it valid?

    I have read many of this persons articles. The explanations are usually very accurate and well thought out. I have not found any major flaws in that writers articles before and find no reason to doubt information presented by them.

    As with all inferior functions they can come out at time's when an individual is under stress. The individual often feels 'out of character'.

    Simply Inferior Ni leads to:
    • Inner confusion
    • Inappropriate attribution of meaning
    • Grandiose vision


    Often there can be a sense of impending doom, many confusing/bad possibilities, a sense of something bad is to happen to them or those close to them (illness, harm coming to them/loved one, relational breakup). Rather than focusing and adapting to the moment (what they do best), they are detached from the present and seeing what dire possibilities are to come.

    Cues or hints from their environment may be interpreted incorrectly, such as @Asura 's example.

    They may have grand visions, be drawn to the cosmic, and become quite superstitious relating unrelated events as having significant meaning. This type may even go as far as dropping everything in their current life for the 'true calling'.

    Here is a link to more information on inferior Ni:
    The Form of the Inferior - ESPs



    Inferior Te manifests as:
    • Aggressive Criticism
    • Precipitous Action
    • judgments of incompetence


    Usually the individual can be quite kind and caring, however when in the grip of the inferior they can become very judgmental and critical and very negative. They can fixate on everything that is wrong blaming others, to later flip to self criticism and self blame. They can over react and become unreasonable, focusing on the incompetence of others and may even ignore their own values.

    There can also be an urge to take some action in attempt to rectify what they perceive as wrong. They attempt to be systematic (make checklists, be methodical, organise things logically). The action taken often makes the problem worse or creates a problem where there actually wasn't one to begin with. This action is an attempt to take control.

    A person in the grip of inferior Ni is having a psychotic episode resembling schizophrenia, basically. They don't have the resources to decode Ni phenomena properly, they take it too literally, too seriously, get freaked out, and end up yelling at demons that are trying to rape them. They might misplace a TV remote and become absolutely convinced that someone broke into their house just to steal this one, inconsequential item. They experience the spirit world in a very dualistic way, and have to protect themselves against what they perceive to be the evil side of it.

    The inferior function, in general, is where you experience temptation when you are vulnerable that leads you straight into whatever your personal version of hell is. It's the oven you go into against your will in order to be transformed in a Plutonian sense. People with your inferior function as their dominant function are your heroes when you're in the grip. They are effortlessly wealthy in the area where you struggle with poverty.

    I see the general story of the inferior function in this video. Something stressful happened, making him vulnerable to temptation. He follows the temptation out of his everyday reality and into a dualistic, life-or-death reality where he has to fight. Notice the difference in intensity between these two places.

    The Inferior Function influences the Dominate Function.


    A lot of stuff here is actually when someone becomes a Pure Type - Ignoring the Inferior. Some of the stuff is just here and there
