How can the inferior function be identified when it's introverted? I'm sure it's easier in moments of stress. Thank you.

Nice timing on this question, in light of the previous submission I just posted (yours came in first ;).

The inferior function is your weakest point, that which you’re most insecure about, and what hurts the most when other people poke at it, regardless of it being introverted or extroverted. If you’re brutally honest with yourself, you KNOW that’s a weak area for you, that you can’t compete in that area with others who have a certain function higher in their stack.

Since you asked specifically about introverted inferior functions, I’ll address them – I’ve discussed all the functions in depth other places, but extroverted inferior functions can indeed be easier to spot, since it produces strangely extroverted behaviors in otherwise introverted people (hey, remember the time ___ got up on the table and started dancing in front of the crowd?).

(These are inferior functions at their worst; but even healthy types struggle.)

For a Ne-dom, inferior Si is their total inability to retain or focus on details, even forgetting the most essential information or being incapable of pulling up specific examples to support their Ne-dom hyperbole. This means their beliefs are wildly inconsistent and self-contradictory, framed in the ideas of the moment rather than on gathered experiences or knowledge. (This is why it HURTS when people point out that you’re being inconsistent in what you said before.)

For a Se-dom, inferior Ni is failing to perceive the larger picture, or in being prone to action without thought of the long-term effects, consequences, or results of your action in the present. This means they often are forced to deal with unforeseen problems built up from short-sighted behavior. They can either refuse to consider reading between the lines, or become fixated on an irrational singular dream for their future that isn’t possible. (This is why it HURTS when people point out, “You should have thought of that before you…”)

For a Te-dom, inferior Fi is a lack of emotional intelligence in yourself and for other people; not knowing what you want, how to care for your feelings, how to deal with your emotions, or being able to consider other people’s emotional needs in your decisions. You may dismiss feeling-based decisions entirely, or neglect emotional self-care, which tends to alienate you emotionally from family and friends and lead to conflict over your lack of “understanding.” (This is why it HURTS when people assume you don’t love them or care about them at all.)

For a Fe-dom, inferior Ti is a failure to have consistent logical beliefs and to analyze situations with detached efficiency; your tendency is to use emotional intelligence (Fe) to assess people and situations and assume this wisdom makes you more logical than you are; but your logical center can reveal flaws or crack under pressure, when a thinker type bears down hard on you. (This is why it HURTS when other people point out inconsistent ideas in your thinking or challenge you as being “irrational.”)

Introverts:

For a Ni-dom, inferior Se is the desire to act within the world but an inability to do so with any kind of consistency, often leading to a passive lifestyle of contemplation ahead of actually working for the things you want. It means you’re incapable of adaptation in the moment, which often means you miss opportunities and/or epic fail when you try. (This is why it HURTS when people call you lazy or unmotivated.)

For a Si-dom, inferior Ne wants to be multi-faceted and creative with bigger possibilities but struggles to grasp larger pictures, is not good at reading between the lines, and can often visualize “worst case scenario” thinking, in everyday affairs (we’re all doomed). (Since inferior Ne fears it isn’t unique, innovative, or creative enough, this is why it HURTS when people point out your creative faults or shoot down your ideas as irrational or unlikely.)

For a Ti-dom, inferior Fe wants to express itself in appropriate ways and connect emotionally to other people, but feels increasingly out of its depth when interacting with emotionally-charged people or situations. Its tendency to be erratic and explosive leads to feelings of shame or vulnerability after a public meltdown, because of an intrinsic awareness that they should have better emotional intelligence. (This is why it HURTS when people call you unfeeling, inconsiderate, or selfish.)

For a Fi-dom, inferior Te wants to be productive and take action in the outside world but struggles to know how to implement their plans or turn a profit, and can feel overwhelmed in situations requiring bottom lines, extensive logical frameworks, or “selling” oneself or one’s product to the masses. As a result, an inferior Te often winds up angry that the world isn’t helping them succeed, while failing to take affirmative action to attain success. (This is why it HURTS when others call you undisciplined, irrational, or unlikely to succeed.)

Hope that helps.

Extroverted Introverts: Ten things to know

Also known as an ambivert, an extroverted introvert is someone who exhibits qualities of both introversion and extroversion.

1. Their spot on the spectrum changes with their environment.

Your ambivert friend may be loud and gregarious around their family, but quiet and thoughtful at the office. Seeing them in both situations may feel like meeting two entirely different people.

2. Talking to strangers is fine – but don’t expect them to keep it to small talk.

Although an ambivert can hold up their end of a conversation, talking about the weather will not be enough to engage them. Their social energy is limited enough that they won’t want to waste it on meaningless chatter. They will likely push the conversation into deeper territory or bow out entirely.

3. They like to be alone – they don’t like to be lonely.

There is a big difference between the two. Choosing to sit at home with a tub of ice cream and a book feels fantastic. Sitting at home because nobody called them back feels sad and lame.

4. Getting them out of the house can be a challenge.

If you catch your friend on a highly introverted day, you may just be better off leaving them at home. They might manage to be social, but they’ll just be thinking about their books and their couch the whole time.

5. If they’re new, you can find them in the back of the room.

An introverted extrovert will approach new situations with cautious excitement. If they know someone in the group, they will likely cling to them a bit as they become comfortable. If they do not, they might waver on the edge of the crowd, slowly getting used to the water rather than jumping in all at once.

6. They’re selectively social.

They don’t mean to be snobs. They just have limited social energy and prefer interacting one-on-one or in small groups. For this reason, they can only afford to invest their social time and energy in those who they feel truly connected to.

7. Making friends is easy. Keeping them is hard.

They like talking to people, but they value their alone-time, as well. This can make maintaining a friendship tricky. If your ambivert friend makes an effort to consistently invest time and energy in your friendship, be glad. You are truly special to them.

8. Their social desires change with the breeze.

They might be desperate to hang out with you on Friday, but then not answer your call on Saturday. They’re not mad at you. They’re just super comfortable in bed watching films.

9. They can talk to you for hours.

If you manage to catch them in a one-on-one situation, an extroverted introvert will just not shut up. Once their interest is engaged, there’s no stopping them.

10. Listening is great too, though.

Sometimes they want to be a part of the action, but their social energy levels are too low for them to contribute in a meaningful way. Listening allows them to get to know you without burning up their social fuel. They also know its value from their chattier moments when they are desperate for an ear.

Why Each Type Is Misunderstood

They are so contradictional, you can’t even understand them: ENTP, INTP

They cover up their emotions with ambition, you have to look really deep into their soul to find their emotions: ENTJ, ESTJ, INTJ, ISTJ

They are so traumatized inside, they have gotten used to it: INFJ, ISTP

They are so emotionally deep and complex: ENFP, INFP, ISFP

They are so selfless they forget how they feel inside: ISFJ, ENFJ, ESFJ

They cover up their problems with parties: ESFP, ESTP

What makes them feel uncomfortable and frustrated:

ENFP: They love dreams, possibilities, ideas and alternatives. Trying new things and taking on new projects excites them. Therefore, having someone belittling their ideas can be very disheartening and frustrating for them.

ISFJ: They thrive on routine and knowing what to expect at any given time. They are excellent planners who enjoy knowing how their week is going to unfold. A sudden change in plans without warning is therefore going to make them feel frustrated and uncomfortable.

ESFJ: Trolling. People who make statements or jokes for the sake of getting a reaction, angry or otherwise, can infuriate them. They see this kind of verbal manipulation as just another form of bullying and conflicts with their belief in showing kindness and respect to others. 

ENTJ: People trying to control them or telling them what to do. They are fiercely independent and like to be leaders and free thinkers. Usually they make better bosses than employees.

INTP: Someone demanding respect because of their status or position without having earned it. They don’t aim to be disrespectful, they just feel that respect and admiration need to be earned.

ISTP: Emotional overreactions. ISTPs keep their emotions on a tight leash, and are surprised when others don’t do the same. They don’t like it when people have outbursts that seem disproportionate to the problem and it can make them seriously question their respect for you.

ISTJ: Not following through on your word. They take promises rather serious. What’s so good about this is that the promise of an ISTJ often means something.

INTJ: Small talk or being constantly interrupted. Their Ni is what connects the dots of life and form insights into their goals, dreams and theories. Ni requires personal space and/or energy, therefore interruptions are frustrating.

INFP: They don’t like people who are insensitive and arrogant because of their Fi dom. They don’t like pretentious people or people who act as someone they’re not because of their Fi dom (Fi = everyone are equal/being true to yourself, be who you are, don’t fake anything).

ENTP: People who don’t take a stand in arguments. ENTPs usually likes to argue, but how can they argue if you’re trying to be all nice and diplomatic and refuse to take a stand?

ESTJ: Basically inconsistent people and unreliability. They do not think fondly of those who are late, lazy, don’t meet deadlines and so on. Neither do they hold much love in their hearts for those who give up without really trying.

ESTP: They like to fix problems, so people who rant and complain without wanting to find a solution frustrates them. ESTPs are great when you want a solution and not that great if you need emotional support.

INFJ: Condescension. Do not mistake their quiet, sensitive nature as a sign of weakness. They dislike being talked down to, patronized or condescended to.

ENFJ: They have a sixth sense for phony behavior and they can’t stand dishonesty. Their Fe percieves minor changes in body language that communicates dishonesty, so they often notice when you lie and they don’t like it.

ISFP: They are strong believers in being genuine and authentic. This makes them distance themselves from manipulation. Behavior used to manipulate or gain attention will irritate them.

ESFP: Making long term plans frustrates them. They want to think about now and let later deal with itself, they don’t know what they’re doing in two years- Having to plan it out right now is stressing them. To them, long term goals are less idealistic than short term goals.
