A Breakdown of The African Jungle Using Cognitive Functions
Fi Shadow: The raw pain of being tired, hungry, scared, and overwhelmed by being lost and alone in a foreign country.
Ni Dominant: Starting out on a journey with a map that you may have looked at only briefly, but it gives you comfort that their is a map and instructions, a form that shows the way to your glorious destination and the way home. But because the map is lost, you only remember the overall general gist and fleeting impressions of the map, without all of the important details. And you are constantly gathering information, and running this map through in your head over and over again to put all the pieces back to a clear guide back “home” or to your “desired future destination”.
Se Inferior: That random uncontrollable event(e.g. an unexpected thunder storm, full of high winds, rocks, loud noises, and other hazards) that blew your map away and tore it into bits.
Fe Auxiliary: Improvise. Fake-it-till-you-make-it. Blending in with the natives, learning their language, rules, etiquette, and gaining their trust to help you survive and learn to find your way back home. Also, you find fun and creative ways to express your imagination and your feelings as a way to cope with and forget about the raw pain of being a foreigner/a stranger, who is lost, alone, unfamiliar, tired, hungry, and afraid.
Ti Tertiary: When the pieces of your map start to take on more concrete shapes and forms in your head. It allows you to grasp, comprehend, and communicate very clearly with the natives and master the tools and methods to successfully survive in the African jungle. You can finally tell people who you are, what you want, and how you want it without confusion and with efficiency. It is exciting and powerful boost to your ego, reaffirming that you were right all along and that you know the map well enough in your head to face the dangerous African jungle without experience alone. So you get all excited and jump to conclusions without help from experience or from the natives about what the map said, causing you to spring to premature action, leading right into a dangerous trap.
