This is the baseline SeTi l— vultology. As you’ll notice, it’s not as hyped as once thought! What threw me off was that I was expecting SeTi l— to be “amped” but that actually doesn’t appear to be the case. It seems overall SeTi’s are more “chill” than anything, and it’s only the double extroverted ones that are amped but the same is true for all double extroverts. Here we see clearly just how far off the SeTi baseline was, as two of the above samples (Kendji and Koops) who were under NiFe, were actually standarddevelopment SeTi! Ugh. Fail. Fail. Fail. They are quite different from the NiFe samples, as we’ve compared now.
Updates to Vultology:
– Nonchalance: One of the things that was mistaken for Ni energy before is their nonchalance. It turns out SeTi’s have this “meh” factor to them that is not at all like Ne’s perky amusement. This perkiness was being expected to be generally “Pe” but it seems like it’s slightly more Ne than Se. And in general (as we saw with the NeFi thread) there was an over-estimation of how “hyped” the energy for all Pe types is. It’s more like… subtly jittery.
– Restless swaying: We see this subtle jitteriness in a kind of restlessness. Notice how the SeTi’s above have this pendulum thing going on, where their whole torso and head swing around like a reed in the wind. This is clear P-lead posture, but before this would have been classified as Pi. Recalibrating the signals, this is Pe, and Pi is more like a “stump” or sack of potatoes. Not rigid, but not self-animating. Pi doesn’t initiate movement, it slows it down.
Here are some examples of Pe restless swaying vs Pi inertia:
^ There’s a subtle pendulum effect, even just a few inches one way and back.
^ The spine is loose, the body restlessly sways around with understated momentum.
^ Pi Inertia
^ Je Gesticulation + Pi Inertia
Woogler above shows the “sack of potatoes” signal. This is a more extreme example but you can see how subtle Pi’s non-movements really are. Pi is actually “still” (I) just like Ji, so we read it’s effects by how it slows down movement. It is identified in the negative. That is to say, by what we don’t see happen and by the manner in which movement ceases. In this case, Woogler is executing a tiny Je head shake that is inertially slowed to a grind by Pi.
I use Carl Jung (Je-conscious) as a less obvious example to provide wider context. Notice how his limbs fall back down slowly into a stump. The way his hand sits on his knee in one beat and stays there. The same happens with the recent FeNi ll– samples like Oprah and Bruce Lee in how the gesticulations become elongated and come to a “sit” or a “deflation” rather densely/heavily but not immediately or rigidly.
This is what Pi actually is. And this will be a key refinement to our understanding of Pe vs Pi moving forward. Again Pi was being extended to include that inertial swaying we see in the SeTi’s above, but that’s incorrect. Pi doesn’t do that. That’s Pe.
