    How long does an INFP (Te) Grip last? Hi All, from a Fellow INFJ. I believe my best friend who is an INFP is currently going through a (Te) grip phase. My question to INFPs who have gone through this is how long does this grip phase normally last and what helps you to get out of it? To anyone...
  2. Cognitive Functions
    I’ve been thinking too much about my type.I tell myself an enfp,however I don’t %100 relate to it. It can be because of my anxiety disorder but i just need to be sure... On the other hand I looked at entp loops and grips(because they are dom ne too)it was SO relatable. However I am too...

    So, here for me (INFJ) school started recently, I'm a somophore (10th grade in my country).

  7. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    I recently read about the Se Grip and I definitely struggle with this. 95% of the time. I was wondering if any INFJ's out there had any advice for avoiding the grip, what to do when in the grip, or even if you struggle with it as well? My main areas of concern are "over indulgence in physical...
  8. ENTJ Forum - The Executives
    I have been discussing with two other ENTJs about what triggers our inferior Fi, what puts us to what is known as 'in the grip'. For us, the only time we trigger the negative Fi is when a relationship ends or we fail at the dating stage with someone we are genuinely interested in. We could not...

  10. ISTP Forum - The Mechanics
    I was reading this article: The Form of the Inferior Function. It was about the ESTP's and ESFP's when they're in the 'grip'. So, I wanted to ask if anyone had any articles or personal experiences of ISTP in the 'grip'. What is it like? And so on and so forth.
