    Do you think being possessive of people shows a lack of humility? What function(s) is

    Do you think a tendency to be possessive of people demonstrates a lack of humility in that it shows a tendency to treat them like objects/possessions without a free will of their own? What function(s) (if any) would this trait be most closely tied to/associated with? Explain your reasoning, no personal attacks or namecalling please. Thanks in advance all

    I don't think being possessive is type-related, tbh. I think some types (like INTP and ENTP) are probably less possessive than average, but almost all types have the potential to be very possessive. It depends on many other factors.

    I'm just joking lol. I don't think this has anything to do with type. TJs can be quite controlling at the unhealthy level tho and FJs too since both have control, power aspects to them

    So I'm not sure what you're saying here. You seem to be arguing two sharply conflicting perspectives at once. So, do you think possessiveness is related to type or not? If not, explain why you said some types are probably les possessive than average. If so, explain why you said you think being possessive is not type related. Thanks

    I should clarify, I'm talking specifically about possessiveness of people. I thought I made that clear in the OP but I may have failed to illustrate what I was saying clearly. Being generally controlling and being possessive are in fact two different things, although possessiveness does involve elements of controlling behavior. The converse is not true however, as controlling ness does not necessarily indicate possessiveness.

    Well I don't think any function in particular indicates potential for posessiveness. If anything, maybe unhealthy Fi as Fi is highly in tune with personal values, what aligns with the self

    I think most types have a somewhat similar potential to be possessive.
    Some few types (the two NTPs, I believe) have a smaller potential to be possessive when compared to other types. It doesn't mean they can't be possessive.

    Is it clear now?
    I don't think it is type related in the way you seem to think it is.

    I agree that there shows a degree of arrogance in possesive people.
    I think it could also come from being insecure in themselves and so the only way to keep people close is by being possesive/controling.
