How to Mitigate Stress for Each Type Based on the Inferior Functions 

There are a lot of MBTI articles out there about stress and the inferior functions. They say that living in your inferior function for too long can cause stress, and then you will be in what’s known as “grip stress”. I’d like to take it a step farther, and discuss my theory that if we play with our inferior function a bit, we can help it to mature.

What Causes Pain for Each Cognitive Function 

Each Myers-Briggs type has a dominant cognitive function that they use to process information that they take in from their external environment. Anytime they interact with someone else or the environment, they receive information and process it through their first cognitive function. They typically also use this function to make the majority of their decisions,Continue reading “What Causes Pain for Each Cognitive Function “

The Inferior Functions and Why We Should Develop Them (What Each Type Might Regret Not Paying Attention to When Making A Decision) 

Each MBTI type has an inferior function, which is the fourth function in the set of cognitive functions. For most people, the fourth function tends to become developed later in life, once all the others have been developed. When each type experiences grip stress, they tend to live in their fourth, inferior function in anContinue reading “The Inferior Functions and Why We Should Develop Them (What Each Type Might Regret Not Paying Attention to When Making A Decision) “

INFX Types and How the Remote Work Possibility Changed Everything

commonly known as being quiet, sensitive and kind. When the COVID ‘19 pandemic hit back in early 2020 in the Unites States, many INFX types were forced to work completely remotely, possibly for the first time, and possibly permanently, because many companies realized they could save money on office space by having remote employees. 

Introversion versus Shyness

In our society, the word “shy” seems to be the go-to word for anyone who seems quiet. People notice those who don’t speak much, and instantly label them shy. However, there is a big difference in the meaning of shy and introversion. Additionally, social anxiety tends to go along with shyness, not necessarily introversion. 

Intuition versus Sensing

The most confusion in the Myers Briggs typing indicator, is typically the second letter of the four-letter types, N or S; intuition or sensing. A lot of times people use both, and are unsure which they use more of, and more often than not, I have found that this letter preference is hardest for opposite types to be accepting of, and accommodating of. 

J or P – The 4th Letter in the Myers-Briggs Personality Type

I took a class on the opposite J and P preferences this past weekend, which is the 4th letter that makes up a Myers-Briggs 4 letter type. I’ve always known the main differences between the two, but it was fascinating hearing it articulated, and also hearing from sets of people in relationships, and how eachContinue reading “J or P – The 4th Letter in the Myers-Briggs Personality Type”

INFJ/INTJ Relationships

Happy Sunday!  In continuing with the relationship series after a brief hiatus, today I will discuss INFJ’s with INTJ’s. I am intentionally starting with INFJ (as my own type) but will expand out from there. Please let me now if there is a type pairing you are interested in, and I am happy to write a bit about it!  Again, remember toContinue reading “INFJ/INTJ Relationships”

INFJ/ENFP Relationships

A common pairing for INFJ is ENFP. The similarities between the two types are the “NF” middle two letters, also called the mental function in MBTI. A lot of people see the middle two letters as very important to have in common, because typically people with the same mental functions will have a similar objective in life, and view of the world. For instance, NF’s tend to look for a deeper meaning and connection with people and everything endeavor in life.

INFJ/ISTP Relationships

A common pairing I have seen recently is INFJ and ISTP. The only type preference that these two types have in common is introversion. That means that there can be a lot of misunderstanding between these two types, and a lot of heartbreak and confusion can occur. The great thing about MBTI is that you can use it to understand your partner and figure out where they are coming from. So, let’s break down the three letters following introversion, and the primary & secondary cognitive function of each type.
