SeTi l-l- Adaptive Male

Now, these are the SeTi that are most amped and they’re not the standard development as once thought, but instead are l-l-. And even here it’s not always too exaggerated. What we see is a P-lead loose body, with casual hands that animate often but never quite “hit” their points with complete resolve. The typical “reed in the wind” Pe posture gets lifted to more of a spunky excitation. But my main order of business is to differentiate this development from the FeNi with developed Se. Lets compare to FeNi.

SeTi l-l-


^ Pe Momentum > Je Gesticulations


^ Pe Momentum > Je Gesticulations


^ Pe Momentum > Je Gesticulations

FeNi l-l-


^ Je Gesticulations > Pe Momentum


^ Je Gesticulations > Pe Momentum

^ Going back and forth between these two sets of signals a few times really helps cement the difference. As we’ve seen with other Pe-vs-Je differentiation, when Pe is primary there’s a sort of horizontal proclivity to their movements that complements their head’s drifting action, while Je-leads have a more vertical orientation. Notice how Will Smith’s momentum ultimately “snaps” into a head nod midway through the GIF, and how Shemar Moore presents something forward with his hands, landing it on the audience. In contrast the SeTi’s have less of a “point” or presentation to their Je movements… as their motions are more impressionistic.

When Pe > Je, gesticulations have a more “flailing” quality to them, and the hands make more circular and haphazard movements. These samples lack the spinal rigidity and “resolution” that can still be sensed even in Se-heavy FeNi’s like Shemar Moore and Will Smith. And it’s here that we can see which function is truly primary.

SeTi l-l- Directive Male / The Social Critic

The same off-handed, flailing arms quality of Je can be seen in these examples… combined with a more Directive energy. Since the vultology is essentially the same, I’ll focus more on the psychology:

Psychology

– Criticism of Culture/Society
– Analysis of People
– Snark and cynicism

These SeTi l-l- have a very “devil may care” persona to them, characterized by a nonchalance that isn’t really “dismissive’ in the Te way, but charged with a kind of flaming Fe condemnation. Yet this flame is not backed by any given political ideology or agenda; it is more of a general frustration at society at large. At the millions of little things people do that annoy them. And thus, often there is an anger at “people in general”, but not so much against any aspect of human nature or morality.

EJArendee famously made a series of videos bashing each type for their shortcomings and stupidities. And “Zombie Ruins Everything” made a similar series called “Brutally Honest” in which he likewise bashes on each type for their irritating qualities and self-delusions. It’s my experience that directive SeTi’s like to bring people off their high horse and say “you’re no better than the rest of us.” Again this points to their realism, but it also points to years of accumulated anger from the Se “persistence effect.” Their micro-irritations pick up from everyone’s little inconveniences, and they become a condensed source for the many subtleties (Se) that define human character (Fe) flaws.

Marshall Mathers is cut from this same cloth, as evidenced by his biting lyrics and criticism of not just individual people but trends and attitudes. Again, all while not being explicitly political. Like all SeTi’s, it’s all more a sort of “commentary on life” than a crusade or a paradigm to be championed. It’s as though they give their two cents and then give the mic back and shrug.

But of course, I am speaking only of the most directive side of this spectrum. At more moderate levels directive SeTi’s can be jesters, ball breakers and hilarious pranksters too.
