Inferior Function

How do you experience your inferior function? Is it a blindspot? A weakness? Your preoccupation when unhealthy? Or simply an area of life you don't care much about?

Si causes problems for me...stuff like getting enough sleep, eating right, exercising,'s just time I'd much, much rather spend I put it off until it seems stresses me out.

But, when I consistently address Si concerns, I feel great!...until it starts to block time for Ne and Fi...and then I snap back.

Sometimes Si is also the only introverted function I can really get to work...for example, "eating my feelings" (Fi is out of balance, so Si compensates.)

I don't know how to define or apply meaning to any of this...I just know that my inferior function causes me problems, so I thought I'd ask and see how you guys deal with your own inferior functions.

My inferior function is Te. It is so incredibly inferior. Whenever I do those function tests, Te is always my last-place function... behind everything, including all of my shadow functions. It is erratic and completely unreliable. I don't experience this inferior function in a positive way at all.
Ti is a much better function for me than is Te...
