    My FI is aggressive not on the outside always. FI cares hole hearted.
    FI can respond quick and aggressive if challenged out of the blue i thought the ISFP was spot on with her description also getting stressed to get the job done i would have thought you would feel this power.
    My NE as designed a few places it looks in the the building visualises the job and i do it not write or draw a plan unless i need to show it. SI keeps me grounded i would say more rooted gives value to life past and present i can remember vivid moments not often. TE i have started to do research reading a lot more .
    How can we be INFPs ?

    I thought I should relate a lot more to the ISFP podcast too- while I enjoyed it I certainly related a lot more to the ISTP one. I think it has a lot more to do with similar experiences rather than anything type specific. Learning not to live disconnected from reality is something that likely affects all introvert types.

    I think one big similarity between ISTP and INFP is the independent streak of the dominant Fi, Ti functions. The refusal to be pushed around. It’s not an obvious, aggressive kind of independence but at the end of the day I will only do something when it feels right to me. Anything else I quietly ignore! I also think there’s a kind of natural overlap between Fi and Ti interests- Ti is ultimately focused on getting at the truth, Fi is always conscious of justice- and there can be no justice with out truth. At least that’s how I look at it.

    I also relate to Klaus’ experience of letting go of the anxiety caused by tertiary Ni and focusing on his Se copilot to be more in the moment. My experience is slightly different of course. Fundamentally I am learning to walk away from the anxious Si 10 year old boy in my head gets a bit obsessive about following the rules and freaks out about anything unknown or unsafe. When I embrace my Ne co-pilot and get a rise of excitement thinking about all the possibilities out there, the fear melts away.

    “this conversation seems like a flow” oh no shit, you talk to two Ne doms. Your dominant Ni is connecting. god damn, this is really annoying…

    This is my absolute favorite series on Personality Hacker. There’s just something about talking to a real live human being (of any type) and observing their responses, tone of voice etc. that brings a whole world of additional understanding. It really allows you to understand personality types at a deep level compared to just discussing them in an abstract, generalized way.

    It surprises me that as an INFP I can relate to a lot of Klaus’ experience as an ISTP. Long distance relationship that exists more in your imagination than reality- been there done that! Having a political change of heart and fearing social repercussions. Even being mistyped as INTJ and not fitting in with MBTI stereotype. As an INFP I personally rebel against the “artist” stereotype. However I can be very artistic when I want to and it comes very naturally. I’ve just never really wanted to be an artist. I think Antonia is probably right when she suspects that Klaus may take to mechanical stuff easily if he tried.

    One last comment- Klaus’ description of the role of Ti and Fe in society, that while the Fe role of harmonizing and maintaining consensus is undoubtedly important, Ti is there to “update the consensus”. Just beautifully put in the crystal clear and concise Ti fashion!
