Fi: Reactive Ethical Judgment Fi is a function that is intimately connected to the emotional register; to the limbic system and its somatic experience of emotions. It directly associates itself with the body and this connection is automatic. For better or worse, an Fi user cannot disconnect themself from this influence any more than a […]Continue reading "Fi: Vultology"
Ti: Reactive Logical Judgment Out of all eight cognitive functions, Ti is the most distant, being disconnected not only from the objective world but also from the subject themself. It has no passion for proactive expression, nor for emotional conviction or involvement. Because of this, Ti has a uniquely lifeless disposition. When Ti is engaged, […]Continue reading "Ti: Vultology"
Fe: Proactive Ethical Judgment The four proactive processes are easier to identify than their counterparts, given how they make themselves apparent by their functionality, but Fe in particular requires recognition to accomplish its aim. The whole of its operation is geared towards an emotional visibility. It coordinates the muscles of the face to align with […]Continue reading "Fe: Vultology"
Te: Proactive Logical Judgment Te as a process is simultaneously proactive and dispassionate; it is a marriage between two seemingly contrary dispositions. While it exerts energies outward in a passionate form, this passion is cold and disassociated from emotional concerns. The combination of such forwardness with absence of feeling creates a very crass function. Without […]Continue reading "Te: Vultology"
Si: Reactive Concrete Perception Si, as a perception process, is intimately connected to the eyes as well as the muscles surrounding these organs; the obicularis oculi, corrugator supercilii, frontalis, as well as a few other minor muscles. I should mention early on that the difference between the eyes of one type and another is not […]Continue reading "Si: Vultology"
Ni: Reactive Abstract Perception Ni, as a perception process, is intimately connected to the eyes and the muscular tension that surrounds them. However, being a recollection process and not a data absorption process, the ocular tension it exhibits does not relate directly to any active engagement with the landscapes or objects in its line of […]Continue reading "Ni: Vultology"
Ne: Proactive Abstract Perception Of all four perception process, Ne is the most internally divided. Its entire operation revolves around the assimilation of new information, however, the information Ne collects from the environment will never fully represent the actual objects observed. This is because Ne’s abstract nature holds no interest toward the environment as it […]Continue reading "Ne: Vultology"
Se: Proactive Concrete Perception Out of the four perception process, Se is the only one which directly absorbs literal information without intentional modification. We might say that none of the other seven cognitive functions are as deeply connected to reality as this process. Se will thirst for richness and nuance in data – gravitating to […]Continue reading "Se: Vultology"
Worldview as the Lead Process Inertia The Pi process, being likewise fluid, does not subscribe itself to the rigidity that the judgment processes produce, yet, due to being a reactive process, it reduces activity in the body. This fluid reduction of momentum leads to a type of density in the body that may be best […]Continue reading "Worldview (Pi)"
Explorer as the Lead Process Alert Eyes As previously mentioned, the activity of the perception processes has a strong influence over not only the gaze of an individual, but the manner in which that gaze directs the head and body. For a type that leads their psyche with proactive perception (Pe), this entails a proactive […]Continue reading "Explorer (Pe)"
