I’m a big fan of the discovery of self through thinking about the push-pull relationship between Dominant and Inferior functions mentioned here: http://personalityjunkie.com/. Any insight from INTPs and other personality types greatly welcomed!
I’ve been reluctant to start this blog, mostly because I feel that it will give permanence to my thoughts and feelings (both past and present). This is because my present thoughts are constantly evolving, changing and being refined as I come to grips with my recent (first?) and hopefully final dramatic confrontation with my subconscious. As for my past thoughts and feelings, especially related to those experienced during this confrontation, well, I’d much prefer that they never existed and that I could forget about them and move on. But, I did think/feel them and they unfortunately did exist, so I’ve decided to accept them as part of my existence/life experience, work to understand them, myself, others, my place in the world and hopefully better myself in the process (and hopefully help others along the way).
I’m also reluctant because I think I might fail, abandon ship, or become disinterested and turn my Ti back to the ideas and things that used to keep me occupied before this whole “life experience”. Never getting the chance to fully express my story to the world (however small it may be) and satisfy my desire for personal enlightenment.
So to all those out there that choose to join me in this journey through my past experiences as a means to be “at peace” with my being– please post comments, challenge my ideas, bring interesting ideas/facts/personal experiences to my attention and discuss. I want to tell this story, but most of all I want to hear the thoughts/feelings/ideas of others on my experience, their experiences and whether a similar or different experience led to their own self-discovery (and what it feels like once you get there!). For now I’m just happy that I wrote a few words down.
Welcome and onwards.
