How Can an INTP Deal With Se Trickster? | CS Joseph Responds
CS Joseph responds to the Acolyte question how can an INTP deal with Se trickster.
Welcome to CS Joseph podcast. I’m your host, CS Joseph and definitely doing acolyte questions, because we have, wow, a lot of them. So, gotta get through them. And you know, why not shock and film them all in one day? Because like, yeah, it’s like a thing.
But hey, you know, what this means is that if you’re an athlete, you get to acolyte member, you get to ask a question, and you get a video response to your question, which is posted on YouTube and plan our podcast for everybody to enjoy. Also, our website, which was the thing that I learned recently, and for some reason, I forgot about that, but who knows why I did. That’s just a thing. So yeah, to become an acolyte, go to CS joseph.ly forward slash members, and then become a journeyman member, and then upgrade your account to acolyte, journeyman.
Awesome, we have tons of seasons of hidden lectures, behind our paywall, and also the cutting edge podcast. And let me tell you something, folks, last night’s episode of the cutting edge podcast was mega cutting edge like seriously, it was because we were talking about which of the 16 types you should be initiating with, if you’re going to be like asking them out for a relationship, which ones you should be letting them initiate with you and going in make a deep on cognitive functions. So like, if you want to learn about how awesome all of that is, you might want to go check out the cutting edge podcast, we have over two years of content, just for the cutting edge podcast. And a lot of people don’t even realize how amazing that is by itself.
So go check that out. It’s exquisite. And also, if you’re already joining me a member of CS Joseph dot life forward slash portal, go to the acolyte section there and upgrade your account from there. And now on to today’s question, which is how can an intp avoid acting on their se trickster? And the answer is they can’t.
Okay. And the video End of Episode right, we’re done. Oh, no. So why why is that the case? Well, that it really comes down to like is your parent function actually developed, it really comes down to that because like, you’re going to be bumbling about in your life as a trickster, being completely unaware of how you’re coming off to other people’s when the reasons why you dress for comfort only.
And the thing is, is that while you’re walking around looking mega ugly, typically, especially in your youth, and you’re not even aware of it, you kind of end up realizing that that is not exactly the desirable thing for you to do, it’s not the desirable way for you to dress. So as your parent function becomes more developed over time, you end up realizing what is actually desirable. So instead you stop relying on your extroverted sensing trickster and start using your parent function more often. And this is basically as a result of cognitive reflection, something that we’ve talked about in season 18.
If you are haven’t gotten any season 18 episodes in your email recently, and are missing some of the links to those hidden lectures here on the YouTube or the podcast. If you become a journeyman member, you can actually get access to all of season 18. And the next couple of episodes, we have five episodes planned for season 18 They’re going to be awesome. Amazing, quite frankly, amazing.
Based on that, I highly recommend becoming a German member so you can also catch up on season 18 as well which is cognitive mechanics. But yeah, within season eight Dean Chris Taylor, also known as Christ Taylor, just kidding has basically, when talking about the cognitive reflections, he maintains that the Trickster function until persons parent function is actually developed the Trickster function kind of takes over for the parent function. This is what actually facilitates what Dave Powers, calls cognitive looping, okay? And cognitive looping is basically when you have your hero function, your child function, working together without a parent function to interfere or get in the way the two so like for me, it would be about doing everything that I would do things based on what people want me to do and based on what people like or what makes them feel good, which would make me the ultimate people pleaser, and doormat ever. I guess that would make a lot of sense based on the people who have molest me as a child.
But with that being said, and if you want to learn more about that story, then you might want to actually head over to season 21 playlist on this channel and watch how to social engineering ENTPS, if you want to learn more about that story from my past, that being said, basically, you know, nobody can avoid acting on their as on their on their trickster function, the only way to actually get to any semblance of avoidance is that you really have to go out of your way to develop your parent function. And developing your parent function is extremely difficult. Because while you are a teenager, when your parents function basically pseudo shows up, it’s actually ready for development, your ego is already protecting itself. And because it’s protecting itself, your parents are noting that you are being irresponsible, because of your lack of because of your underdeveloped parent function.
But they can’t really develop it or help you develop it because your ego is going to fight back. And that’s what being an adolescent is all about. That’s why teenagers are typically a problem for parents is because your ego is defending itself all the sudden, whereas it wasn’t previously, right. So, so based on that, the only thing that can be done is through cognitive orbit where in order to develop your parent function they have to develop, they have to basically hit your critic function, and then your parent will start developing that way over time.
However, that’s for external sources of development or external pressure for development. For you personally, you can kind of be aware of it. And instead, as an intp, go out of your way to have new experiences that you’ve never had before challenging experiences, literally, if the INTP can get to a point where they’re constantly on a daily basis, challenging themselves really, truly challenging themselves and having the self discipline to keep challenging themselves. This could be with physical things, like like, like imagine if an over an obese INTP, all of a sudden deciding to count their calories and their macronutrients every single day, while doing five miles of walking every single day, in order to lose body fat, for example, that’s a huge challenge.
That’s a great example. Or moving to another country for six months without even knowing how to speak the language and surviving. That is an awesome challenge. Basically, intp needs to get out of their comfort zone and force challenges.
So instead of comfort, focus on challenge, that is how Introverted Sensing is grown. So focus on growing your Introverted Sensing child. And by doing that it forces via cognitive axis because expert intuition parent is on cognitive axis with SI child, as a result of that access into expert intuition parent will actually start rapidly growing itself. And that is how you personally can develop your parent function without relying on external sources hitting your inner critic, which would cause very slow development of your parent function, which is basically how everybody in Western society actually does it anyway.
And that’s why the parent function is the last function to develop because everyone is so enabled in Western society to the point that it’s insanely annoying, right? So, yeah, that can be a serious problem. But yeah, really, the answer is how can an intp avoid acting on their su tricks or they can’t. So really, if you want to get any control over your tricks, or whatsoever, you have to get the parent function develop so that you’re no longer leading with your trickster mentally, you’re actually going to be leading with your parent function. Instead, you’re gonna be doing what is desirable instead of what you think looks good, which it doesn’t.
So yeah, you might want to pay attention to that. So anyway, folks, thanks for watching and listening. That’s it for today’s episode and I will see you guys tonight can you take you building
Dear CS Joseph-
Hi, Mt name is Rachel and I wanted to tell you just much I enjoy your lessons and how I’ve instituted those lessons into my life. I’m infp who is finally taking some chances in life and getting out of my comfort zone. And I am surviving those changes which is the MOST important thing of all for me;) I’ve only very recently decided to stay at my current job, despite the fact both my status and reputation had been under attack. In the past, if I even thought I could see a potential problem coming up at work that would harm my staus/reputation, I most certainly I would quit. And it has been an interesting challenge to just sit back andl literally hear about my “negative” qualities from another coworker from time to time.. However, I remembered something important. Because I have worked so hard to just be “good”, I know that’s exactly what I am so why would anything else matter to me? I completely understand the paralyzing fear my forth function puts upon me. But I feel I am progressing as a human being and getting past all that fear. I truly hope this makes sense to you, okay?
But I do have a question I would kill or die to get an answer to please (lol)? I currently work with an intj who is my manager and I totally adore him, of course. But it has been three years and I’m at a total lose when trying to approach him with the subject. I would like to know how someone would get an intj to say YES to a date or something of that nature please? I can tell he finally does trust me and is always trying to make my work environment better but hoe can I tell if he actually likes me in that way, you know? I will seriously be PRAYING that not only read this message but answer this all consuming question for me. I honestly do not believe this man has EVER been with a woman in ANY way. He is considered to be a pretty big “Dork” and is generally unlikely by the staff at work. I seem to be the ONLY person he is interested in having a conversation with. And, yes, he usually is the one to initiate contact with me. That’s at least a solid sign, right? Lol, PLEASE do not hate me for asking such a silly question. I have much bigger ones I plan on asking in the futre:) THANK YOU AGAIN FOR WHAT YOU ARE DOING. This is how to change the world, is it not?
I’ll be keeping my fingers crossed that you somehow answer my question. It means a great deal to me.
