    About the possibility of auxiliary and tertiary function switch places

    I heard in DaveSuperPower channel that your middle functions are kinda 'negotiable' and can switch the order conform each person of the same type, do you think that is accurate? like a entp having a more developed Fe and less of Ti more inclined to being NeFe

    Jung wrote that the auxillary function must be in every possible respect different to the dominant function. Going by this statement, if the dominant function is Introverted Judging, the auxillary must be Extraverted Perceiving - and vice verse. Whether the supposed tertiary/inferior functions are in the same pattern, I don't think there's much research to really prove or disprove it.

    From my understanding of having read through Jung, I think the functions become more 'neutralised' (balanced between introversion and extroversion) as you go. I'm sure it's entirely possible to have all the functions extroverted or introverted, but you would be a highly dysfunctional individual. Too high in introverted functions would probably influence someone to be reclusive and avoidant of external stimuli; too high in extroversion would probably influence someone to have no self-awareness -- cannot stand their own company.

    I stopped watching DaveSuperPower a while ago, so I'm not familiar with his latest posts.

    I think since your functions develop at different times the development of the third function may cause someone to notice its use more in relation to the auxiliary one, causing one to think the two have switched because the third function is being used more in comparison to the second than it was before. Or else someone could be in a loop, or maybe a combination of the two. That's all I got. I had this issue a little while ago and realized it's one of these two things, or neither because this is really all bs anyway.

    You are saying that your middle functions switch just in particular situations?

    Not really, at least not in someone mentally healthy. There is a theory in socionics about subtypes of types, but I'm not well versed in socionics in general so I don't want to site it. But the guy you referenced talks a little about it, where some people have a tendency to place more trust in the third than second function. It appears to be a semi learned and conscious thing though, where a loop is unhealthy and not deliberate.

    There's no ''switching'' per se, but there is definitely a thing with ESFPs who are more Te heavy than your average ESFP for instance (same for every other type). Usually it's an age thing. As you get beyond 30 years old (for the average mentally healthy adult) you learn to work your aux and tert in tandem. I've met several ESTPs for instance who were borderline sociopathic a-holes in their young 20's just manipulating people for their own personal gain and walking away not even looking back at the damage they caused. Yet in their 30's they become very aware of other people's needs and may even put them above their own.
