    Hello, I am INFP male. Well, I’ve read socionics description about INFPs, and I’m a bit confused. It’s said INFPs can use all cognitive functions, but they “wear out” whenever using Accuracy and Sensation (It’s said those functions can be consciously used but requires great mental energy). And also it’s said that Harmony and Perspective are driving them in unconscious way, said that those two are developped but INFPs are not aware of their utilization. What the point is, I want to know how INFPs use Accuracy, Sensation, Harmony and Perspective in their live? How they impact them?

    This is a facet of MBTI typology that fascinates me, especially given that an appreciable amount of mistyping is founded on confusion between the co-pilot and ten-year old functions e.g. IxFJs demonstrating incredible logical precision and thus being mistyped as TPs.

    Indeed, it is all the more fascinating that you’d identified Tolkein as an INTJ rather than as an INFP, as the latter’s leading Authenticity function is the 10-year old process of the former. It leads one to wonder just how often the 10-year old process manifests itself such that it is often the cause of much mistyping.

    Putting that aside, the final segment of this particular podcast interests me deeply as I did for the majority of my life did consider fiction writing my desired career. This has since changed, although I still hold a deep appreciation for the art of narrative construction.

    It leads me to wonder to what extent does one’s cognitive functions lead one to emphasize certain aspects of the storytelling process. Certainly, MBTI typology is nothing than an attempt to create a framework based on one’s decision making and information gathering preferences, but I do wonder to what extent those two qualities inform certain narrative decisions, and if those correlations do exist, then which aspects of narrative writing correlate with specific functions.

    I’ll formally send this as a PHQ in due time, but I would be interested in hearing initial thoughts from the both of you.
