figurative journey

anonymous asked:

So, im gay. But I'm only 12 so most people dont believe me and are like "Its just a phase" but i know its not because being open and free to like who i like has made me the happiest ive ever been. What do i do?

First of all, I am hardly an expert on any of this, so please do not take my words as a final authority. But, I believe you’re the only person who knows you the best. No one else has authority over what you’re experiencing. For me, I started realizing I liked boys at around 8 or 9, and it was confusing but I was also alone and had no one to bounce my experience off of. And also, who you like is not a set thing. It can always change and shift, so if you identify as gay right now, that’s awesome! If that’s not how you identify later in life, that’s great too! Sexuality can be fluid. There’s no pressure and however you identify as at a certain time, that’s valid cause you know you best. If this identity is bringing you the most happiness, it sounds like that’s the thing to listen to, but again, I don’t have authority to say. Proud of you for being unafraid to openly start asking questions about this. The journey in figuring yourself out never truly ends! I hope no one pressures you in any way in determining your own identity!

Finally finished! The flip wizard is here!

I had way too much fun with this… also uh, did he get a feather duster at some point? Or was it a fan? By the time I questioned the validity of the item, the drawing was far too rendered to erase it lol, so there it is. 

ATTENTION ANYONE WHO IDENTIFIES AS ASEXAUL

Hello!!!

I’m Ally, I’m a scriptwriter and I’m currently writing a TV Show where the main character’s best friend (she’s basically also a main character though) is going through the journey of figuring out she is asexual. I personally have not experienced how it feels like to be asexual or what it’s like to go through discovering that about yourself. I went through figuring out I was pansexual but that’s a different experience.

My point is, I do not have any friends who are asexual and so to really create this character I need some people to tell me their story. If you have any type of story about being asexual or figuring out you’re asexual, please message me your email and I will email you and we’ll have some fun chats lol. I really need help from you guys! I really want to create this character but I need to know some people’s personal stories to be able to write this character and represent asexual people correctly.

Please, if you can help me out it’d be much appreciated.

I love you all, have a good day!

Endless Summer: Book 2 News

Inside Choices is a behind-the-scenes blog from the Pixelberry team. Got any suggestions for future blog posts? Let us know!

Back in December, Endless Summer kicked off alongside LoveHacks and The Haunting of Braidwood Manor. It began as a fun tropical island adventure, then transformed into a deepening mystery, complete with a final puzzle that you all worked together as a community to figure out.

The journey continues in Endless Summer: Book 2, which will come out around mid-summer (about July for those of us in the US!). It’s been fun hearing from everyone about how excited they are for Book 2, and I promise you, it’s gonna be epic. To tell you more about the upcoming book, here’s the Endless Summer book lead!

First off, what’s Endless Summer: Book 2 going to be about? No spoilers, please!

Endless 2 picks up right where we left off. Some of your friends have been kidnapped, and the island’s mysteries are only getting deeper. But as our misfit heroes search for the dark truth behind La Huerta, they’re going to uncover some dark truths about each other… and themselves.

When Endless Summer: Book 1 came out, it was a departure from the previous Choices books in both art and narrative style. Do you have anything new and different planned for Book 2?

We’ve actually got quite a few fun, new gameplay ideas and features that we’re putting into Endless 2. Without spoiling too much, let’s just say that all the relationships you built up in Book 1 are going to matter way more in Book 2.

What are you most excited for readers to encounter in Book 2?

I have to say, I’m most eager to see how our fans react to our biggest plot twists yet, especially the ones we have in store for the end of this book.

From where I sit, I’m always overhearing bits and pieces about the next Endless Summer book, whether it’s some wild plot twist or new character art. What’s your favorite part of creating Endless Summer?

Endless Summer has had a lot of freedom to explore what’s possible in a Choices storyline. My favorite experience has been using Endless to invent new, meaningful ways for players to determine their character’s choices and see their decisions unfold, in both expected and unexpected ways. Book 2 takes that mission statement even further, and I can’t wait to see what our fans choose to do in their adventure.

If you had to be trapped on a mysterious tropical island with one of the Endless Summer crew, who would it be?

Maybe I’m crazy, but I’ve gotta say Raj. Nobody would be better at making me laugh through tough times, and besides… I think he’s a lot smarter than he lets on.

Interesting choice! To everyone reading, thanks for your patience as the Endless Summer team works hard on the next book. Keep an eye out for Book 2 around July!

Kalagang #05

1x06 Demons

There’s only one Kalagang moment in this episode, but I LOVE THIS SCENE. I mean, we love all Kalagang scenes, don’t we. Who doesn’t? Isn’t that why I am writing these posts and you’re reading them right now in the first place? LOL. So without further ado, let’s begin.

Previously on Sense8, Kala fainted in her wedding. Thank you, Wolfgang. Now they are aware of each other. Also, we get to see what each character thinks more importantly of – moral compass, logic, or desire.

I don’t know if it’s just me, but when Wolfgang says ‘hello again’, I felt my heart exploded. TOO MUCH HOTNESS. I JUST. I CAN’T. HIS FACE. HIS BODY. HIS FREAKIN’ EYES. HIS VOICE. DAMN YOU WOLFGANG BOGDANOW. DAMN YOU MAX RIEMELT. Whoa, I’m gushing too much.

See what I mean? I can’t think straight when he’s like THAT.

Original post [x] @netflixsense8gifs

Oh no? OH YES TO ME! Kala, you seriously need to appreciate the fact that you are able to see him.

JUST LOOK AT HIM! OH MY GOD! You know what? this post can just be me gushing over Wolfgang. And I’m not gonna be ashamed of it. Or feel sorry for not analyzing Kalagang moments which I should be doing right now! You hear me? I wont’ be SORRY! – no, I’m kidding. I’d feel terrible if I didn’t write this post properly.

Original post [x] @fyeahmaxriemelt

One thing I’ve noticed when Kala locks her door is that the place they visit each other – right after they’re surely aware of one another’s presence – has changed. Before this, places Wolfgang and Kala visited (or just connected in general) were more public such as cemetery, Sanyam’s (Kala’s father) restaurant, Indian restaurant in Berlin, club’s bathroom, swimming pool, and the place where Kala’s wedding was held.

Now, they are in each other’s bedroom – the most private space one can have. Wolfgang showing up in Kala’s bedroom has significant meaning to it.

Original post [x] @fyeahmaxriemelt

Let’s rewind a bit. When Kala wakes up in her bedroom, the first thing she sees is her family (although the person in the middle looks like her coworker/friend but whatever). Let’s say Kala’s bedroom is a metaphor for her mind or herself. Her family (and friends) symbolizes things or people that made who she is today. They represent Kala’s personality, her beliefs, her dreams, memories, relationships, important values in her life, you-name-it. At the same time, her mind is the most private space – like her bedroom. So she only lets in those which she knows, trusts, cares, and loves, or at least she’s familiar with – just like her family has been the only ones who can come to her bedroom.

Original post [x] @fyeahmaxriemelt

But then, all of sudden, out of nowhere, THIS GUY shows up none other than in Kala’s own bedroom. In her bed. And let us not forget that Rajan has never been in her bedroom, ever.

I wrote in the previous post [x] that when Wolfgang showed up in Kala’s wedding he represented Kala’s inner voice. I’d add more and say Wolfgang himself symbolizes Kala’s darkest and deepest desire which explains why Kala later describes him as a demon.

Anyhow, so Wolfgang showing up in Kala’s bedroom indicates – the wedding sort of triggered the awakening of Kala’s desire which has been hidden for very long time. And now, it’s visible. Again, in her bed. She can feel her longing for something more in her life; she just doesn’t want to admit it, yet.

And before we move on, can we just take a moment and see how Wolfgang is eyeing on her? I mean, seriously…I’m 600% sure that most people love this scene because of the way Wolfgang looks at Kala the whole time.

Wolfgang: I didn’t ruin anything. You didn’t want to marry that guy. [That is not for you to say] Maybe not, but you wanted me to say it.

Obviously, Kala doesn’t want this unexpected visitor – more like an intruder from her perspective – to keep seeing through her.

Original post [x] @eleveun

And obviously, Wolfgang cannot help but enjoy knowing what she wants with seductive look on his face.

Wolfgang: *pat* *pat* *pat*

Me: I’M SOLD

But not her. Nope.

Original post [x] @fyeahmaxriemelt

And he seems so disappointed. Which makes him hotter and cuter for some reason. But I’m kinda glad that she said no to him. One of many things I love about Kala and Wolfgang is that even though they’re pretty much love at first sight, they don’t rush. Their relationship rather builds up gradually making their connection stronger.

Moreover, this is the first time Wolfgang actually develops a relationship with someone. It’s going to be something totally different from what he’s used to do with other women. So Wolfie, patting the bed may not be the smartest move to make in front of Kala. Not right now.

BUT interestingly, if you look back at the GIF where Wolfgang pats on the bed, you can see Kala’s body sorta leaning towards him for a moment – deep down, she wants him too.

Original post [x] @klarksbelomi

I have absolutely nothing to talk about – except how cute this whole scene was. The way Kala tries to figure out what is going on with her, Kala’s description of Wolfgang as demon, Wolfgang gazing at Kala as she moves back and forth in her room…and smiling at her. P E R F E C T I O N. Technically it’s not their first meeting, but it still gave me this vibe of meet-cute in romantic films.

Wolfgang: If you are so concerned with privacy and decency, why did you look? [I did not] Yes, you did. You looked then, and you’re looking now [I did not].

Original post [x] @ludi-lin

I just love how he teases Kala. Him glancing down at his ‘trunk’ and then right back at her. He’s totally enjoying every second of this moment with her.

Kala: [and somehow, I feel that you want me, too] Oh my god, you are a demon.

Original post [x] @fyeahmaxriemelt

In 1x02 post, I wrote that the way Wolfgang describes his feeling towards Kala is going to change gradually from words that are very instinctive to something more emotional. First it was ‘craving’; now it’s ‘want’. If you search the word in the dictionary, it means ‘have a desire to possess or do (something); wish for’. So for Wolfgang, this feeling he has is still closer to desire or lust (instinctive). The reason he uses that word is because maybe he doesn’t know it’s love, yet. Or maybe he’s just more used to that word.

Want, desire, lust – these are the words Wolfgang is familiar with. To Kala, they’re raw, strange, unfamiliar, and even immoral things to feel – which explains her astounded reaction. Not to mention she’s never heard directly from someone that he wants her. But at the same time, you see a very subtle smile on her face – she doesn’t hate it completely. I feel like she’s impressed by how straightforward and honest Wolfgang is. Because in her life, she never had a chance to talk about deep feelings or desires so openly with others.

I mean Wolfgang is everything that Kala is not – and that makes her more attracted to him…and vice versa.

Kala: I know that if it was you [Rajan] that had fainted just before you were to marry me, oh, dear, I’d be absolutely sure that you hated me and that you didn’t want anything to do with me. So I completely understand if you came here because you don’t want to marry me any longer. And you don’t have to worry about protecting my feelings.

Maybe because she’s somehow influenced by Wolfgang, but anyhow, when Kala meets up with Rajan, I think it’s the first time she actually spills out what she really feels. I would say she tried her best to be honest as possible, but it’s still not enough to make Rajan to know her intentions completely.

Because the way she address the issue is…you can see that Kala wants to be honest with Rajan, but at the same time she doesn’t want to hurt his feelings. She doesn’t want to be that bad person who dumps her fiance after their failed wedding ceremony. I wrote that Kala is on her journey figuring out ways to become an adult…and this is going to be one of the biggest struggles on her way. Sometimes, one has to be brutally honest with another.

Being honest with your heart may hurt others. There’s no grey area for this. At least in Kala’s situation. Whether she likes it or not, Kala will have to make a choice in some point. The consequence that follows her decision is inevitable. It is her responsibility – a burden that she must bear. It is painful, but that’s what makes us…what’s going to make Kala a woman (adult).

Rajan: For me, I love what happened. I love it because it makes our wedding something special. […] I imagine telling our children how their beautiful mother took one look at their father and fainted straight away. It is a great twist.

Oh Rajan, you just keep coming up with more foreshadowing of Kalagang.

andddddd the award for the messiest two foot spin AND HAIR FUCK ever goes too: ME

I used to be really good at these but I had a really nasty fall on one and lost all my confidence, hence why I’m struggling because I get scared and give up half way into a rotation. but meh shit happens and I’m working on building my confidence back up again

Kind of embarrassed to post this before pic from January 1st but in the spirit of my honesty and recovery journey, I figured here goes nothing. Besides the obvious physical improvements, I cannot stress enough the inside improvements are way more noticeable!!!! Good diet, exercise, prayer, meetings, vitamins, positive thinking and a career I love are what work for me. I’m gonna keep on doing what I’m doing and hope I can inspire others in my journey.

“He lures you into a scenario where, in a normal comic book film, the violence that you would get would be sort of morally clear. You get a little bit of punishment for assuming that everything’s going to be glossed over and clean and easy to understand.” 

This quote, featured in this brilliant video essay on Watchmen’s metafictive quality, is from Zack Snyder, talking about the explosion of violence at the end of Alan Moore’s original comic. In the Watchmen film, that idea gets translated so that violence saturates the world instead of building up to one long fight at the end (which … also sounds familiar). In both cases, the way Zack Snyder breaks filmmaking conventions is deliberate and calls attention to what the script is saying on a more basic level. The script isn’t superficial, of course, but as an audience, we are used to listening to the script as a primary means of conveying information, and we often ignore the visual aspects. Visual language in film is about more than just the film’s color grade–it’s about how shots are composed, how the mise-en-scene contributes to recognizable “language” in film, how evocations of other films call to mind certain ideas and themes. In Snyder’s work, it’s clear we have to pay attention to multiple components of each film if we want to understand the full intent. 

The quote above could also apply completely to Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. If you go into the film thinking you understand all there is to know about Batman and Superman, if your plan is to see your exact preferred versions of these characters brought to life, then you will miss all the signals Snyder is giving you about the wrongness of their current worldview. You ignore these signals at your own peril, and by not allowing these clues to take you to the place the story is going, where these heroes will essentially rise out of a broken superhero film landscape and actually become grounded in their creeds, you are buying into the same cheap, cardboard storytelling Snyder critiques. 

Snyder knows how audiences watch his movies. His goal is to draw them out of that comfortable, passive consumption and bring them on the journey of figuring out who these characters are and what they stand for, on a level that goes deeper than the consumable, marketable versions of them we think we know. When I say people don’t get Snyder’s films, I’m not trying to handwave criticism. I’m asking people to think about why they criticize his films the way they do. If the level of criticism stays on the level of “it made me uncomfortable, and I didn’t understand why he chose to portray the characters that way,” then all you have done so far is identify the baseline of Snyder’s work, the call to action he’s asking you to recognize and then follow as he explores that line of thought on film. If you don’t follow the line of thought, if you don’t bother to ask yourself why these heroes have to adhere to your exact specifications, then you are not allowing his films to tell you a story, which is the most basic responsibility of the viewer. And that is not on Snyder.

riding cock is not part of any real lesbians story. its about time you accept your bisexuality

i don’t know where this special kind of Ugly came from, but you’re wrong in so many places here. One, I’ve never even seen a man naked, let alone “ridden a cock.” Two, if I had, I could still be a lesbian! Shocking! I know! Gold star lesbianism is fake and ugly and completely invalidates lesbians who have suffered from compulsory heterosexuality or just had a longer journey figuring out their sexuality. Newsflash asshole: you can still be a lesbian even if you’ve had sex with a man

Sui/Han at a Team VISA 2018 Winter Olympics signing ceremony, 4/25

Photos by @藻藻AlgaeZzz. Video clips by @新浪冰雪.

Part 1 - Wenjing & Cong thank the audience for supporting them

Part 2 - Playing a clip about Sui/Han’s career, injury, and World title

Part 3

Q: Who is the “teacher” in their partnership? Wenjing says they are a team and they are the same, they both learn and work hard to improve themselves. Though she was stuck in the hospital for a few months, Han Cong continued to train and run ahead. After she came back she thought, oh, he’s way ahead of me now, and then she had to run extra hard to catch up. In pairs skating, both partners have to reach the same level, and scores are given based on the weakest element. It’s very important to get both partners to the same level so they train and learn everything together - though she might still be the slightly weaker partner right now. Cong says pretty much the same thing.

Q: Have they ever bought/received gifts for/from each other when something momentous happened? Wenjing: Yes, but she doesn’t remember right now (everyone laughs). At an event this season she saw a ukelele and thought it was really pretty, then Cong bought one for her. She doesn’t even really like it, she just thought it was pretty, so this gift sticks out in her memory.

Q: Has Han Cong ever given a gift that he put a lot of thought/emotion into? Cong: Not really. One time they were competing at (2015) 4CC in Korea (Interviewer: “I bet this was the 4CC you won.”) Actually, they placed 4th that time (everyone laughs). One of their spins was invalidated and they felt very disappointed, so they went out and bought matching bags. It encouraged them and gave them the feeling that they would do better at Worlds that season. VISA cards support them everywhere in the world (everyone laughs).

Part 4

Sui/Han talk about staying in Helsinki for 2 days after Worlds to meet the presidents of China and Finland. They were very honored by the experience.

Q: What have they been doing lately? Wenjing: They just came back from Canada the day before, where they were getting new choreography and preparing for the new season.

Q: What is their new music? Wenjing: They have picked out new music but it’s a secret for now.

Q: Is the music more Western or Chinese? Wenjing: It’s a secret.

Q: Why did they choose “Bridge Over Troubled Water”? Wenjing: Last year they made a very big decision (to get surgery). Since 2012 the ligaments in her feet have been broken and some of the bone was also shattered. She has been bearing it for years because she loves skating and really wants to continue, even though it hurts. Before the surgery she was really struggling and their results were not very good. But because they had these results, they are standing here today.

Q: How did Han Cong feel while waiting for Wenjing’s surgery to end? Cong: The surgery wasn’t supposed to last very long, but it ended up 2-3 hours longer than expected. He was waiting there along with Wenjing’s mother and all the Team China leaders. When they pushed Wenjing out her face was white and she was smiling, “It’s finally over, I could hear them grinding my bones.” Wenjing: Before they gave her more anesthetics she could “taste” the saw grinding at her bones, there was a burning taste. It was pretty scary, she was crying nonstop the first hour, laughing deliriously the second, and she can’t remember the third hour so she probably fell asleep.

Part 5

Wenjing says she doesn’t understand money very well, she just swipes her credit card and leaves the bills to her mom (everyone laughs).

Asked to say something to their partner: Wenjing is thankful for meeting Han Cong on her figure skating journey. When she was little and didn’t really understand the world, he was like a locomotive pulling her ahead. Though she now has her own goals and knows what she needs to do, there are still times she’s uncertain, and during those times he is like a lamp shining on her and helping her go in a better direction. She thanks him for staying by her side all these years, no matter what they went through, they walked through pain and hardships together. This year is their 10th year of partnership, when she was in Canada she sent out a weibo message about it. This is their first 10 years and they received their first present, their first World title. In their next 10 years she hopes they will achieve even better results.

Cong: Wenjing in his heart is an incredibly strong, determined girl. She’s more amazing than all other girls. In these 10 years, especially the previous year, she suffered such a serious injury, went through the torture of surgery and rehab. Compared to others she had very little time to train, but in this time she was able to regain a level that allowed them to win the World Championships. She has given far more effort than him, suffered through far more pain than him. He hopes the future will hold no more pain for her, and in order to win more titles, they will continue to work hard together.

Introverted iNtuition: Secondary Function

Introverted iNtuition is applied onto the the ENJ’s dominant function (Te or Fe). As an introverted perceiving function Ni, as wells as Si for ESJs, is needed for ENJs to see from an individual perspective separate from from their dominant Te/Fe, which doesn’t take the individual perspective into play and without the use of Ni, ENJs can be extremely domineering and full of absolutes. However, when we look into Introverted iNtuition specifically and not just secondary Introverted Perception, we see that how Ni varies depending on which dominant function it is helping: Fe or Te.  This means that although there are similarities in how Ni functions in the auxiliary/secondary position, they get used differently due to the dominant function’s external focus being different.


ENFJ
Fe · Ni

For the ENFJ this means that they analyze people, society, and culture. They use Ni to critically analyze society, culture, and individuals. This can make them more psychologically oriented, but does not suggest they need to be psychologists (however, a decent amount of ENFJ characters are just that). This may still seem vague and you may be wondering what exactly makes this different from how the INFJ utilizes Introverted iNtuition.

For the INFJ, Ni is very individual. It is their perspective and meaning that comes before Fe. For the ENFJ, Fe comes first. The ENFJ is grounded more in the outer reality of social systems and puts more stock on these rational systems than in the individual perspective. This doesn’t mean they ignore the individual perspective. In fact, ENFJs can often see too much of the other person’s perspective being able to justify terrible things. However, they place more stock in Fe, in people as a whole and agreed upon social structures and understandings than on their own personal perspective, often forgetting their inner selves. The community or cultural systems come before the self for the ENFJ. This creates a more rigid character than one sees in the INFJ.

ENFJs put more value is social expectations and crave rules when it comes to social order. Ni creates a need for ENFJs to understand these social expectations in individuals outside of themselves. They want to understand the journeys of others and help them make decisions to get them on the right path. ENFJs aren’t going to create a philosophy to restructure society like an INFJ, but are going to look at understanding society as it currently stands, and help others find their place within it.

Examples are always better to increase our understanding of what this means. Let us look at two different ENFJs in fiction. Our first example will be Tenzin from Avatar: Legend of Korra. He is often mistyped as ISTJ because he seems rigid and stuck in a certain way. Many mistake his need to preserve his culture and way of life as Si, but this is misunderstanding both dominant Fe and dominant Si. (More on Si in the dominant Si article to come). Tenzin’s focus is on people and culture. He is rational, but so is Fe. His rigidity comes from is external feeling, believe it or not. Social order is important to him and he heavilt believes in the social systems he belongs to. His Fe is the function that wants his to preserve and enforce his culture and history, no Si (that isn’t what Si is about). His introverted perception is not Si, but Ni; which is what we are here to explore, not to prove he isn’t ISTJ.

He is interested in understanding others, like Korra. His Ni leads him to want to guide others to fit into his cultural understanding. He believes strongly in his culture and in the new society his father created. This is what makes him not seem understanding to Korra and her different way of doing things. His External Feeling judgment comes first and makes him stubborn. When he accesses his Ni to understand Korra, we not only see him open up to her perspective, but we see him be a far more helpful guide to Korra. He not only helps her become a better Avatar, but he helps her find who Korra is separate from being the Avatar. His Ni is what leads him to want to help Korra find her spiritual self. He helps guide her to find her place within the cultural system he believes in. 

It isn’t a coincidence that our second ENFJ example is Clara Oswald (Doctor Who) who becomes an actual teacher. Her Ni always helps her understand other’s personal perspectives (being healthier than Tenzin she is able to use her Ni to make her less closed off than Tenzin). She constantly helps new characters, but most importantly she is always there to guide The Doctor. She helps him to not murder his own people, she guides him to give Daleks a chance, and always reminds The Doctor that although he is independent, he has a responsibility to people, to earth, to all societies.This is her Ni combo with her Fe. Her Fe makes her interested in people, and her Ni has her help them by helping them figure out their own journeys. This could be seen as meddling, but it comes from a need to help others.  

ENTJ
Te · Ni

Ni can be fairly similar with ENTJs, but it is obviously different in how it looks because of their dominant Extraverted Thinking, Te. Te is rational like Fe, but is focused on facts, systems, and objectivity. It is a function of absolutes, of what has been proven and agreed upon to be true. This is interesting when mingled with Ni as the secondary function. Te bases them in some sort of system whether that be law, like Alexander Hamilton (Hamilton: An American Musical) or science, like Princess Bubblegum (Adventure Time). Ni makes them analyze these systems and work to improve them. Like Ni in ENFJs, Ni is a helper not a leader in the ENTJ. Unlike the INTJ who is more of a visionary in creating a whole new system, of making outer reality fit their inner reality, the ENTJ is very much in the objective world. They work to improve on systems that are already in place, not to create an upheaval of the entire system. They are loyal in their own ways to the system they identify with.

This can be confusing when you see someone like Alexander Hamilton as an example. Wasn’t he all about new ways? All about revolution? AKA all about upheaval? Yes, but this still doesn’t contradict my early statements of Ni in ENTJs. Hamilton is still loyal to the system of the law. He improves upon it, but isn’t above it. His fierce loyalty to the law and the system over himself (inferior Fi, more on that function in other posts) is his downfall. He was so in the objectivity of the law, and honoring that system, that he let his name get torn apart. He used Ni, specifically, to improve upon already existing systems. He didn’t pick what was relevant to him, but what was relevant for the system. What works and what doesn’t. Whatever didn’t work he threw out, like Monarchy. ENTJs are not trapped within a system because of their Ni, despite their fierce loyalty to the system from their Te. They simply filter the world through a rational system outside of themselves, before turning inward. 

However, many conflate Te and Si. Si does use concrete facts and figures but to perceive and to form a personal narrative. Te works outside of the self on rational conclusions and agreed upon systems  That is when a character like Princess Bubblegum comes in. Her loyalty is to SCIENCE! Although she trusts that objective world (Te), her Ni drives her to constantly improve on it and break the boundaries of science itself with her constant experiments. It is why she can seem stubborn in her arguments not seeing how subjective she can be, because her arguments do come from a rational place. Her Ni is where we see her ambition to perfect and use these systems. Te systems can take many forms, but how Ni is implemented on them is not. The key word for the secondary Ni user, whether it is working on a system or working with people, is improvement.


For the ENFJ it is to improve the lives of others within society and for the ENTJ it is to improve a logical system for the sake of efficiency while remaining loyal to said system. The ENJ can seem stubborn and can be confused with stereotyped ISJs, but are in fact innovators. They are simply innovators within something, which is counter to dominant iNtuitives (ENPs and INJs that have a harder time fitting within said systems)
