In this episode Joel and Antonia continue talking about personality type “loops.” This week they ask the question “What About The Auxiliary-Inferior Personality Loop?”
In this podcast you’ll find:
- Car Model
- Growing your copilot is the highest leverage thing you can do.
- Looping can occur when two cognitive functions are of the same attitude (introvert/extravert).
- Driver and Tertiary functions share the same attitude.
- Copilot and Inferior functions share the same attitude.
- Dominant/Tertiary loop serves a specific function – defensiveness and maintaining cognitive dissonance.
- People stay where they are comfortable and dominant/tertiary loops are comfortable because they share our preferred attitude.
- We aren’t sure if there is a loop between copilot and inferior because it isn’t comfortable like the dom/tertiary.
- If it is a thing, it may explain why some people avoid using their copilot.
- The inferior function is our blind spot. We aren’t comfortable there.
- If our copilot puts us in the inferior space, it is an interesting idea to explore.
- We make up for the deficiencies in our inferior process by mastering our dominant and auxiliary processes.
- Like INFPs who use their copilot to find creative solutions for systematizing their lives.
- ENTJs who use Ni to offset their Fi blindspot.
- ESFPs can use Extraverted Sensing to make up for their Ni blind spot by reading people’s body language.
- We may need to build sophistication around our auxiliary function to help us overcome the blind spots in the inferior.
- It isn’t a loop; it’s a frustration.
- It’s not codependency; it’s a puzzle that still needs to be solved.
- Certain types may feel like they are looping with their aux/inf.
- The inferior may feel stuck.
- If an INFJ has really good Fe, they recognize the difference between needs and wants.
- If you feel like you are in an auxiliary/inferior loop, is it because you’ve ignored your inferior for too long?
- The Personality Hacker Starter Kits have some handy hacks for giving the inferior process attention.
- Si inferiors can revisit old shows, music, video games, or amusement park rides.
- Our trauma can live in the least sophisticated part of ourselves.
- When we are stuck in our inferior, the auxiliary can be the tool we use to cut out whatever has us trapped.
