    It is not about that it is how you end up with cognitive function preference. What is your other judging function?
    ask your self what bothered you as a child? what did you want to fix? and this does not go off type at all. Ask your self why are you using the terminology you are using. I am also not saying introversion can not be pessimistic but not one cognitive function alone are any.

    This is why i do not think you can increase self anything apart from awareness. I am not saying they do not decrease and increase and back the same.
    introversion is a static state. Extroversion is continuous.
    FI. is emotionally content FE. is Discontent emotionally
    SI. is content in it environment SE. is Discontent in its environment
    TI. is content in its own human impact TE. Is discontent in its own human impact
    NI. is content that its reality is real NE. is discontent in its reality
    introversion is the positives you picked up on very early in life.
    extroversion is the negatives you picked up on very early in life.
    Its just what i think. For now.

      What you’ve written about the functions doesn’t follow the theory — each function is more like a set of specialized tools, and while there are costs to that specialization, I don’t think that the content / discontent framework is quite right.

      I’d encourage you to look at the articles in the Resources tab, especially those related to the car model, that discuss each cognitive function in depth. Or maybe just check out some of the earlier podcasts for deep-dive explanations of each function. There are even some podcasts that cover what the functions look like when they’re most “discontent” i.e. when they carry trauma within them… but I can tell you as a Ti user, to say Ti is automatically “content” is almost hilariously off-base for me given how pessimistic that voice can be.
