    I’ve returned to this podcast several times as an INFJ because I think this concept of energy management is so important. I’ve found myself recently feeling overwhelmed at a new job that focuses heavily on socializing and Si/Te activities like paperwork and scheduling. So, to add to the discussion, I think it’s important that we introverts make sure we have plenty of introverted time (that is dominant introvert function time) during the day prior to reaching out to that copilot process. Perhaps this is an INxJ thing more so, but I’ve found it challenging to get enough Ni time so that I’ll have energy to socialize and contribute to other demands from the day. I’m curious if anyone has found any hacks to increasing their Ni time during the day at work?

    I’ve been jumping back and listening to many of the older podcast episodes, and this one stood out for me in particular because I am always open to ideas and ways to improve that co-pilot. Good insight! I am definitely realizing how important good energy management is for me, and not overextending myself in the outside/social world. I would say that watching particular movies or shows can be an excellent door into your Fi world though, especially the ones that maybe help you feel strong emotions, or something with really engaging storytelling. In my own experience as an Fi/Ne user, movies can also be a really strong trigger for Ne if it has an element of fascination to me… it’s not always immediate, but some stories (or elements of the story) will stick in my mind and really engage my extroverted intuition later on. The movies Inception and Pan’s Labyrinth are two of those that instantly come to mind! If you write stories or like to imagine and create them in your head, then cinema can really fuel that creative world-building, too. After all (and as they say) nothing is original; just a mashup of previous works. Or something like that.

    I think we have to watch out for that we are not mixing up our co-pilot-stuff with the inferior-stuff. They take up the same space (sort of) and we can often mistake the one for the other. Which is part of the process of weeding this out. That is often exactly why we do not want to go there. For an INFP Ne and Te can be difficult to separate. But if you can find ways to go into Ne without touching Te (for now) to take care of your needs there it will help a lot. Baby Te is very exhausting to go into.

    That was a really good one on how to develop co-pilot process especially for me as an INFP.
    Things I’ve been trying to exercise my co-pilot exploration process: play genres of games that I don’t usually prefer, like RPG, shooting, obstacle and high adrenalin games.

    Another major one I’m doing is scheduling my time differently. I am quite a fan of the book 7 habits of effective people, so I’ve been thinking about my different roles and the top few tasks to do per week in my scheduling, and because I work in spurts, I usually allocate about 20-25min blocks to the different tasks I am doing. I’m also more of a morning person than afternoon/night person; I can’t get anything done once I get home at night, or just basically when I’m in the house, and I do like to socialize quite a lot with friends though I am an introvert, so I leave evening time for time with friends, walking around the neighborhood and relaxing etc. This schedule has been serving me rather well for a number of years but I feel that I’ve reached a plateau in terms of managing my time and energy around it. So, really trying out different ways to schedule, and probably leaving it more flexible than fixed just to try things out for a bit.

    Thanks for the comment, L! To quote you:

    “I have responsibilities and bills to pay. But if I fall into my Fe I may feel like doing nothing, I may be inconsistent, unreliable, and may show up as irresponsible and never accomplish anything.”

    You aren’t describing Fe here. This doesn’t even sound much like tertiary Ti. It sounds like Tertiary or inferior Fi.
