Well I got sidetracked “looking into some things” so I better just start at the beginning and loop back around later.
My first impressions. INTP wasn’t really based on anything I saw in the (first triangle) video per se, though I can project a little of it. There’s a little bit of Ne in some of the body postures, and the goofy curly hair. It was more a theoretical experiement, trying to test the Ne/Ti impression I got from the mixture of mathematics and rhythm within a specific type stack. I get functional impressions before anything else, rarely whole type impressions, unless I’m visually typing or the person is an obvious example. But I always thought of rhythm as more of an Se thing, which means it can’t be Ne I’m seeing, so hence, could it be Si? “Perfect” Si would be necessary, so tertiary, and not INFP, it was too rigid/structural for INFP. An impression to examine.
ISFP was a visual impression from the way he moves his body. A kind of speaking beyond speaking, a flow and control. I keep coming back to the Christine and the Queens thread, though just an impression, no details. He doesn’t really have the expressive Fi flair tho, just the physical control.
I do get a thinker vibe, though I’m not sure I trust it. It’s in how formal he is, how practical. I think Ti, not Te (though not inhibited Te either), precision and practicality working together. I don’t think ISTJ, but I can get a whiff of it. Something wooden, something off in the Fe. The Fe feels very practiced, not very natural.
Before I get into all the stuff from you @Nur I need to air some thoughts on perception, and where I’m coming from in quantifying the concepts. Open to debate as always. It will help me explain (at least to myself) why I got stuck on Ne. And then the question is not if I am seeing Ne, as all types have all 8 functions, but where, and how can I track the nuances of functional position in future typing.
ANyway, perception. Perception is interaction with being (presence?), where judgement is ordering of being. S functions represent the concrete world/physical plane, where as N functions represent abstract world/imaginal plane (or plane of possibilities). Space/time are defining factors of the experience of being. Extraverted functions deal with time as subject to space (space dominant), where introverted functions deal with space as subject to time (time dominant). Sorry if that is confusing, it is kinda confusing to me too. Another way of putting it is Se/Ne explore the experience of space where Si/Ni explore the experience of time. Subjectivity/objectivity start to specify in the nuances of an individual’s preferred (conscious) and shadow (subconscious) perceptual axis, and their functional placement. SO VAUGE ah sorry please lmk if this makes sense. I’ve hobbled this idea together through my very meandering study of MBTI. Meant to read Blake’s article on perception functions to see if how I conceptualize it holds any water over here, but I’m logged out and for some reason that was enough of barrier for me to get distracted. I shall revisit before the next round.
To be more specific, Ne=abstract (the idea of)/objective (existing as-is) space as quantified by Si=concrete (in the body)/subjective (personal experience of) time. Okay, starting to confuse myself by wanting to dig in and fragment more, I’ll stop there. The point is, I was asking myself “Is the conscious interaction I’m seeing engaging space as an abstract, or as a concrete?” It’s easier to start with space than with time, cause time is just more wiggly to me in general.
After all of that, I have to agree that I am seeing Se/Ni. The space is concrete. Literally concrete, an actual fucking huge triangle. The time is abstract, flexible, being manipulated. Still see Ti rhythm. Hell, still even see Ne, but pretty certain it is in shadow at this point. So that brings me to your INFJ assertion, and Stewarts perceptions.
Insert page break, long breath.
