The term Ji Beta refers to a Beta type that is lead by a native-state Ji. This term is the most universal name for this type, covering all expressions of its cognition, its resulting vultology, behaviors and mythology. The term also encompasses both forms of hierarchy that we may parse out from this essential psychology. The name is agnostic regarding attributes other than J and I, and the only criteria for its identification is belonging to the Beta function quadrant and Ji energetic quadrant.
The function hierarchy of the Ji Beta can be understood in two ways. From the perspective of a polar hierarchy, this type is lead by Ti > Fe (L), and supported by Se > Ni (V). The hierarchy of the Ji Beta is therefore TiFe/SeNi. In this hierarchy both Ti & Fe comprise the primary oscillation and central drama of the psyche, and both Se & Ni comprise the secondary oscillation of the psyche, playing a supportive role to the central psychological narrative. Here the role of Fe is understood as the other side of Ti, and the metabolic tension between Ti and Fe (and their compounds) is of most importance. The TiFe/SeNi is a Judgment type, and exists primarily to grasp reality through logos and systems, developing frameworks of reason and ethics and then using those systematic understandings to affect world outcomes.
The other way to view the Ji Beta’s hierarchy is through the thetic hierarchy, highlighting its primary thesis (Ti+Se) as pivoted against its antithesis (Fe+Ni). From this perspective, the hierarchy of the TiSe has Ti as primary, Se as auxiliary, Ni as tertiary and Fe as polar. Both ways to view the Ji Beta’s hierarchy are valid and highlight different truths. The thetic hierarchy describes the four functions by their complementary relationship to each other, with Se being the easiest function for Ti to integrate. The Ti+Se conjunction is therefore the most seamless and natural modality for the Ji Beta to process. However, the polar hierarchy describes a less seamless but more innate relationship that comprises this type’s central struggle and objective.
