This looks like Ti and Fe to me. As the above user pointed out, you're considering an abstract thought and reason around it in a way that I would readily associate with Ti. "Should we keep pets at all? We have for a long time now, so it's virtually unfixable." However, the whole thing is laden with other people's feelings (Fe). So, you're considering this because you encountered an event that was bound to have made people sad (a loved dog being put down for being aggressive). This seems to be what triggered the abstract thought.Hello everyone!
I would like some help with my type (as you can see I'm not typed yet) by analyzing an example of my thought process. Thank you in advance :happy:
So, some days ago I heard in the news about a man who killed a dog because he/she had bitten his girlfriend a day ago (sad, I know). I immediately started thinking on whether or not having pets is a good idea. People have had pets for over thousands of years now. It is kind of our fault for making them so dependent on us, but we can’t fix that now anyway, so just almost like any other idea out there, politics regarding pets will be morally “relative” (meaning that it can be interpreted as good or bad depending on circumstances or the observer). However, what came in my mind was that humans are also part of this relative morality, so I tried to compare ideas with human beings. Then I thought about how ideas are just created to serve as a purpose for us human beings (so ideas only exist for human’s sake). But are there humans existing for and ideas’ sake?
I guess this is what we would call an ideal. People are willing to sacrifice part of or their full lives for these ideals (which are also ideas, ideal=idea+l). Another example is brainwashing, by “incorporating” (not sure if this is the right word so use) ideas into people’s minds (this whole thing is reminding me of “Inception”).
This describes some kind of dominant function, since the process is involuntary and unconscious (all such functions are 'automatic' in this sense). Given the types we have available, there are 6 dominant functions to choose from: Ti, Ne, Se, Ni, Si, Fe. Furthermore, it doesn't seem to describe either Se, Fe, Si or Ti. It seems either too abstract, too unrelated, too disorganised or too incoherent. With regards to Ti dominance, what you're describing seems too incoherent. Ti dominance manifests as an unconscious stream of random thoughts that never stops. Yet none of it it is, as far as I know, esoteric or hard to understand. The thoughts can be 'weird' in that they're embarrassing to talk to other people about because they're unusual (hello Si), but they're not incomprehensible.This thought process is not the same as how I have described it here, however. It usually lasts just a few seconds, only contains keywords + weird images + patterns. Because it is too fast I usually cannot understand it completely and to do so I have to write it down, but doing so is a little mentally stressful, because the mental process has almost no details and connections between ideas at all.
Before writing this I only had thought about the first paragraph (my mind stopped thinking right there). Thinking for longer periods of times this way does not come as naturally (that’s because the thought process at first is automatic, after a few seconds I start to become conscious of it and my mind gets blocked). I already know that the thought is not finished but it is just too stressful (I need to analyze the thought consciously).
Thank you for your answer. INTP is a type that I have been considering for a long time, and relate to Ti descriptions. I will definitely consider it.I don't know if Ni dominants or aux do the same, but what you're describing happens to me pretty often.
I'm a Ne-Ti user.
So my money is on Ti-Ne, purely because the initiation of your thought process was "should we even OWN animals to begin with?" which, to me, is what Ti would do, analyze the set rules and attempt to look at them from all angles, Ne being an aid that allows it to see them.
This would mean you're an INTP. That's my first guess.
That sounds a lot like INFJ. It doesn't sound like a P, and it doesn't sound like INTP. INTPs like traditions and don't mind acting spontaneously.@Seq Thank you for your answer. I've been considering INFJ but I didn't know the difference between Ti and Ni, so thanks for pointing that out. Concerning your questions:
1-Yes, taking the initiative is very stressful to me, but once I start doing it, I like to take it to the end. If I don't finish I know I will have a hard time starting it again.
2-I hate unpredictability. I would rather stick to a routine than live a life full of spontanity. Usually when I plan something, I will feel bad if other people interfere with it, making me change plans.
3-I feel uncomfortable when traditions impact society and/or my inner values in a negative way. Otherwise I don't really care, as long as they do the trick. Sure sometimes these kind of things do sound stupid (like for example celebrating the New Year bcs Earth did a full rotation), but still, this serves as a reason for people to celebrate together, so as I said, I don't care as long as it does the trick.
