TeSi ll–

TeSi ll– Unseelie Male / The Un-Retired Grandfather

Spoiler:

Compilation (watch full-screen)

This is interesting now, because what we see here is the same sort of Je-lead rigidity as l—, except a more inertial delivery of each hand gesture and head nod. The body appears to lag behind a bit, even though it is not drifting or swaying like a Pi-lead. The head is still face-centric. Each head nod and angular movement still delivers it’s closure, but with less of a hurry. The TeSi ll– is more energetically introverted than the TeSi l—, due to a balance of introverted and extroverted energy.

Qualia: The qualia we see here is a seasoned old King. A wise old patriarch. The energy is still commanding, leader-like but also embedded with Senex energy. One gets the sense that they are sitting atop their successful life, rather than trying or fighting to be successful. Tempered. Learned.

Psychological Profile:

Their personality can be summed up as:

  • Specialized in certain areas of knowledge
  • Historical / Narrativist
  • Prolific career, lots of information behind them
  • Sitting on a nest or large body of works
  • Entrepreneurial

Overall this type appears to give the vibe of being “comfortable in retirement.” Unfortunately most our examples so far are old, but I’m sure with a wider database we’ll find younger samples too. It’s not inconceivable, however, that age brings about Si more in TeSi’s. The once ambitious edge of their Te has been smoothed out and what might have been avid ambition becomes a novel interest or hobby. We see in James Cameron a passive interests in deep sea exploration and geography (Si), which he pursues at his leisure. We see in Tolkien a writing habit that spans thousands of pages. Being Te-leads, they still have plenty of “oomph” to dedicate to whatever they fancy — and indeed they tend to fancy a lot of different eclectic interests. They’re never quite “retired” because their lead Te function still gives them a busybody tendency. And so they are partially an “executive” and partially a veteran/advisor.

They tend not to be as political as TeSi l— types and instead they seem to be more about amassing information (encyclopedic) and sharing that information. They focus their Je on creating a body of work/portfolio (in acting, film, etc) that centers around their preferred crafts. Still, if any of their interests call upon the need for management (which they often can, like James Cameron being a film director) they can still be known for being commanding and exacting in that domain.

TeSi ll– Seelie Male / The Polymath Grandfather

Spoiler:


More data still needed here, but Bob DeMaria is visually quite the same as the above samples. The difference is that Bob has a stronger seelie Fi focus on healing and the body. But likewise we see in him a seasoned wisdom and a large body of expertise.

TeSi ll– Seelie Female / The Faux-Fe Grandmother

Spoiler:


Like the males, what we see here is the same sort of Je-lead rigidity as l—, except a more inertial delivery of each hand gesture and head nod. The body appears to lag behind a bit with reservation, even though it is not drifting or swaying like a Pi-lead. The head is still face-centric. Each head nod and angular movement still delivers it’s closure, but with less of a hurry. The TeSi ll– is more energetically introverted than the TeSi l—, due to a balance of introverted and extroverted energy.

Qualia: The qualia we see here is a maternal one. Beatrice appears courteous but also parental; nurturing but also very mature. Motherly, and/or Grandmotherly.

Psychological Profile:

Their personality can be summed up as:

  • Specialized in certain areas of knowledge
  • Prolific career, lots of information behind them
  • Leadership focus
  • Sensitive/Nurturing

We only have Beatrice in this category right now, so we’ll focus on her. She’s seelie, so she carries the same Maternal energy that the TeSi l— women do. It’s a sort of faux-Fe due to seelie Fi + feminine energy atop of a Te lead function. However, we see in her main works like this one:

…a focus on leadership, as we’d expect. Like TeSi Barbara Sher, she writes about “how to succeed.” And we see in works like this (below) the prolific, Si-compartmentalization and voluminous quantification of phenomenon:

..for any of you who have owned the book, you know it’s quite a fat one, and like with TeSi ll– Tolkien we see the encyclopedic imprint of Si present. TeSi ll– differ from SiTe l— in that the latter is content experiencing life in that narrative sense, while the TeSi ll– likes to write (articulate) about it. And so the TeSi ll– engages in a kind of delineation and crystallization of “narrative.” This is the same thing TiNe l-l- Noam Chomsky does, using his lead-Ti to categorize, organize and rationally align all the massive datasets brought upon by Si.
