    It was fun listening to this podcast, as once I again I was able to find myself in it. As an INFP, I totally identify with the desire and compulsion to make a difference or an impact in the outside world. BUT, buy am I unskilled in it. I’m always trying to set up systems that relieve me of having to make functional decisions, because they wear me out.

    INFP here… I really recognised myself in 3-year old Te thinking I could do “everything on my own”. In fact, if all I needed to do was things that I could do myself, there would be no Te problem! 🙂 I am very good at organising my own life, making detailed plans to follow for weeks, months in order to achieve something that I really want… as long as I want it strongly enough, and the plan is time-limited ( I could not live very restricted to a plan forever), I can be more self-organised than most people I know. But organising other people on the other hand, is my worst nightmare! I dont know how to do it! Why would they listen to me, how would they follow my instructions…? I also often feel stressed about administrative paperwork that we need to do at my job – in fact, administrative work doesnt interest me at all. So, when I first realised I was INFP, I was surprised that Te is supposed to be my weak function. But it all makes sense when I differ between privately organising my own life, and the ability to organise others.

    I think that the car model can limit the conception of how behaviors and qualities actually show up in the personality. Always referring to the tertiary function as a ten year old limits that function to amateur use, as it never develops. Individual people use their functions in differing measures that have to do with exposure and value more that simply what position it’s in. I envision it more as a sliding scale within parameters because of its position. Someone who grew up with a parent or family values attached to a certain function say Fe (being polite and thoughtful to others and gracious in social situations for instance) may be better at understanding that set of values more even if it’s their third function. That’s what gives personality such depth and richness because these set of behaviors and ways of thinking we call functions can show up in different ways in the totality of the personality. I appreciate that the car model makes it easier to explain these mental interactions but functions are always nested in value systems and in they way we feel about ourselves, how we want to be and more saliently, our identity. A ENFP can be very adept at using Te if they have practice using it since they were young, for instance. Another ENFP may never have had to be responsible or didn’t have a structured childhood. They may struggle with rounding out that aspect of their personality. It’s a scale of familiarity and use, not a stagnant representation.

      Veronica, I love your elaboration on this. Very thoughtful and articulate and really adds to this model in a useful way.

    Awesome, really enjoyed this one! It was fun applying these scenarios to myself and the people i know. Could you guys make one on the perceiving functions? Thanks so much!
