In this episode, Joel and Antonia continue to dive into deep personality type content around the cognitive function polarities, what they are, why they are important, and how they influence your personality. On the last episode they talked about the perceiving polarities. In this “part two” episode Joel & Antonia discuss the Judging Polarities.

    I’ve really been enjoying your podcasts. Question- As an individual ages do the polarities shift in their percentages of the whole? Example: I’m an Fe-Ti and am turning 40 this year. I feel my Ti is getting stronger with age. I’ve shifted some major internal patterns, questioned formerly accepted ideas and have become more logical. Do you think this is normal? Do we continue to grow in depth in the functional stack?

    Keep it up!

    The only way I could truly come to understand Fi was to build relationships with people who use it as their dominant or auxiliary function. I think you’ll be able to experience all the subtle nuanced differences between Fi and Ti by spending time with TP personalities, not FJs using it as a tertiary or inferior function. And once you ‘get’ Ti by hanging out with TPs, I suspect THEN you’ll se how the FJs in your family are using their Ti as a less sophisticated function.

    Maybe my lack of comprehension is solely due to biased experience with the alternative polarity, but Ti Fe makes no sense to me. And I don’t mean to suggest that the polarity is illogical and without sense, but very specifically, I cannot wrap my head around it. Ti especially. No matter how much I hear or read about it, I just can’t identify it. I imagine this is because it’s my eighth function and so similar in structure to my dominant Fi while at the same time valuing different data and coming to different conclusions with that structure that it’s hard for me to reconcile a function simultaneously so intrinsically similar and vastly different. I’m not sure. I just don’t get it. I start to think I understand it, and then I start feeling like I’m using it – but people tell me it’s probably Te – and realize I must not have an accurate enough understanding. It is amusing to me that Joel pointed out his contribution of examples to the podcasts, because I find myself in desperate need of examples. When I’m with people who use Ti, how can I see in the outer world some sign of that function being in use? I suppose I’m focused on output because that’s what Fi Te likes, but also because I think introverted functions are so process oriented already, I have a hard time being able to see a function operating within someone’s head. I think you guys are likely explaining it as well as it can be explained, but I literally just don’t get Ti and it’s so frustrating to me. Most of my family identifies as FJs, so I’d like to be able to recognize this function and understand what’s happening for them. I don’t see it, and I thought to myself maybe they are mistyped (still totally possible. Most all of them insist they are INFJ which probability just doesn’t support), but it seems equally likely that I have no idea what to look for. How is Ti actually applied? What does clean data lead to? What’s that look like day in and day out? Where’s the output? I am an utterly lost INFP.

    Hello I’m curious if it matters where this polarity shows up in your car model? I noticed that for some it sits in their co pilot and 10 year old, and for others the polarity is in their driver and 3 year old.

    I just had an observation about the Te-Fi polarity. I have a friend who is an INTJ. From a very early age he was determined to work hard so that he could be in control of his life and not be at the mercy of others. My sister, who is an INFP, suffers from chronic fatigue and often feels very anxious that she is not in control of her situation. Both are concerned about being in control, but one works hard to ensure that he is in control, while the other doesn’t believe there is anything she can do to take control. It seems that control is a big part of the conversation going on in this polarity.

    This does not, however, mean that the Fe-Ti polarity is not interested in control, but it seems that when they seek control, it is for external reasons that have more to do with the well-being of others than oneself. I have an ENFJ friend that feels that she is responsible to take control of a situation to ensure that everyone is happy and getting along. In my own case, I’m an ENTP, and I often try to take control of a situation if I feel that I am the most competent person to handle it. My goal is for things to be done right, and in many cases, I don’t trust others to do it as well as I can.
