    Oh man. Lord have mercy. This quote right here. If somebody bothers me when i'm really thinking about something, when all is deathly quiet and intense, A very intense and angry impulse comes over me.

    Thanks so much for your comment and pictures. You've been a great help. The supression is very true. I feel like it is very hard to live in the real world and not supress Ni in favour of Se. I end up usually feeling drained all the time as a result. How amazing it must feel for ESPs. anything external puts us in the grip. We're ourselves in deathly quiet conditions. What a bizzarre set up in our brain.

    Np, I am glad to be of help. I have been unhealthy myself for quite sometime... feels good to finally be coming out of it. Personal growth may not always be easy, but it is worth it. :) And yes, I am not sure how it is for other types, I assume all have their struggles, but it can definitely be hard for INFJ.

I often don't realize how much it is. Other times, I skip meals because I didn't even notice I was hungry. So yeah, definitely try to focus on keeping myself cared for is something that I need to work on. Thanks for the tips, @Love .
    Ahahah so true. Dominant Ni= dismisall of Si. Health. However, for some reason, contrary to the INTJ, this does not lead to us eating too much/becoming overweight and unhealthy in this manner. We end up starving ourselves, and going th opposite route. I can remember a time when I was deathly thin in the grip/Ni-Ti for the longest time. Maybe, it's just me. Some stuff I've noticed.

    I partially agree and partially disagree. I sometimes do have trouble connecting with other people. When someone asks me a question, and I give an unfiltered, true-to-myself answer, they misunderstand and then the conversation ends in me being frustrated that I was not able to successfully convey my thoughts. Actually, scratch that. I successfully convey my thoughts, because I am VERY meticulous with my word choice and I use words in their literal sense, but people fail to understand my clarity because they allow cultural bias to fog my speech. If they read a dictionary, they would see that when I use the word "scathing" I MEAN the EXACT definition of the word scathing. Or the definition of any other word for that matter. Additionally, I do not see INFJs as thinking they are better than anyone else. Actually, I see quite the contrary through the low self esteem of many INFJs. Just because someone does not talk or contribute to a conversation a lot does not mean they are automatically judging you or that they are snobby. Maybe they don't feel comfortable sharing their opinion around certain people. Maybe they don't feel what they have to say is super important, so they would rather listen. Who knows, all I'm saying is that INFJs are not helpless little pity mice, but we are also not overbearing leaders who blaze every trail ahead of us.

    The reason I think Ni-Ti loops occurs, is FEAR. Pure and simple. People run away from what the part of their identities that they don't get and feel threatened by. Inferior Se makes us afraid to experience reality, because deep down we know it will not live up to Ni perfectionism. Repressing Se is self-destructive for INFJs, and when this occurs, Fe is thrown out the window so the INFJ can numb his or herself from FEELING reality. I think it is a form of self-delusion. For unhealthy INFJs, the cold hard truth they can't handle is that no matter if they give a cause their all in the world; it does not mean the world will manifest the ideal. It is easy to hide behind a rational persona to keep ourselves from experiencing failure, but where there is no struggle, there is no growth. The other types experience something very similar themselves, it is just that their "sensitive" functions are different. Most people's psychological health is mediocre. Mediocre INFJs are usually afraid of the world. NEWSFLASH fellow INFJs: The world will still be cruel and cold. SUCK IT UP. This doesn't mean you get to sit on your behind all your life and never try to make a change.

    I think I was wrong about this initial post. It's not even about Ni-Fe. I mean everything is objectively true, however, my problem was actually a forced imposal of Se on myself due to pressuring at various key points in my life from others. As a man. To 'look' focused. To not be treated as a simpleton when you've got 10 trillion serious things boiling inside. I have been going Ni recently. I don't actually wanna jinx it. But Ni-Ti is actually not too bad. As long as you're in pure-Ni. Ni-Fe will come naturally. easy. The most important thing is to get into Ni. Ni is our life line. It is so hard to enter though. One must completely withdraw from reality. Shut off all external stimuli. A bizarre hand we were dealt. We have to do with what we have. It turns out we didn't even have Ni from the start. Fe is just something we wield. Ti is something that is constantly on. No. 1 priority= make sure you're in dominant and not in inferior.
