Welcome to the C.J. Joseph Responds. I’m your host, Chase, here to answer your questions on any topic Jungian Analytical Psychology or the Four Sides of the Mind, also known as Four Sides Dynamics. Today’s question is what does the ESTP fear most of all in the world? And the source of today’s question is Quora. So let’s take a look at the question. It’s right here. What does the ESTP fear most of all in the world? And it was asked, well, it doesn’t say who it was asked by, but I guess it was just a question that is here. So fair enough, I’ll answer the question regardless. So, ESTP is– Where is fear located in the Four Sides of the Mind? Fear is located primarily within the inferior function, also known as the infant function. It is the fourth function of any cognitive stack within the ego. The ego is the first side of the mind. It contains the hero, the parent, the child function and the inferior, or also known as the infant function. This is also known as the second cognitive gateway. The second cognitive gateway is very critical to a person’s personal growth because mastering this gateway, mastering this fourth function in the Four Sides of the Mind gives somebody the ability to basically have full access to their subconscious, to be able to cognitive transition to the subconscious, and become a different type entirely for a temporary period of time. And for the ESTP type, that is the INFJ side of the mind, which is their subconscious. However, in order to gain access to their subconscious in a healthy way and not a destructive way, not in a chaotic way, they have to get over their fear. And they have to develop courage essentially, develop hope. And having no hope or, and being afraid of not having hope is probably a component of the biggest fear of an ESTP. However, the absolute biggest fear an ESTP has is loss of freedom of choice. Basically, being thrown into a prison, being put into a cage, being locked into a room where they can’t get out. The rage is extreme. So if you have like a small child, you put him in a room, like okay, go to your room, and then you lock the door and their locked in the room, they will thrash and destroy that room. They will be insanely ragey. And it’s like, okay, yeah, chances are that’s an ESTP child, because they will not allow anyone to take away their freedom of choice. Such that they are willing to sacrifice other people’s safety and comfort for the sake of their own freedom of choice. And that’s one of the ways that ESTP can come off as insanely selfish. Because they’re often willing to put other people at risk for the sake of their freedom of choice. When compared to an ISTP, that’s not really the case, or even an ISFP, that’s not the case, Because they have an introverted intuition child, but they have extroverted sensing parent. Extroverted sensing parent is a bit more responsible instead of extroverted sensing hero. So because it’s a bit more responsible, it’s a bit more pessimistic, they’re actually willing to let go of their freedom of choice for the sake of the safety or comfort of other people around them. Whereas the ESTP is just not really willing to do that. The ESTP would really actually have to have a high amount of respect or a desire or passion for the person for them to be willing to let go of their freedom of choice for the sake of the other person. But that may just be only one person in their entire life that they may actually ever do that for. And it’s usually their children. Or a child, a child of choice, for the ESTP. Or maybe the one person they’re apprenticing. Yeah, it could be their lover. It could be their wives or their husbands, but oftentimes it usually is not the case, because ESTP’s are more suited for relationships with high introverted sensing, introverted sensing parent and hero, for example, who can actually, who actually don’t mind if they’re forced to do things, don’t mind if their choices are being taken away because they just want to be told what to do. Which is very central to who they are. So they don’t really mind that so much. So the ESTP usually is willing to let go of their freedom of choice, usually for someone that they insanely, intrinsically care about, like a child or an apprentice of some kind. Because quite frankly, the purpose of life for the ESTP, other than exposing truth, is to take on an apprentice and transfer everything that they know. All the wisdom and all the knowledge that they’ve ever gathered throughout their whole life, and transfer that upon another person, their apprentice, basically. But at the end of the day, their greatest fear is no freedom of choice. And that’s why when they’re picking people to be in a relationships in, they pick people who give them the most freedom of choice that they would ever have essentially. Because freedom of choice is absolutely everything to them. Take away their freedom of choice, it’s how you kill their soul. An example of introverted intuition inferior would be the most recent “Tiger King” documentary on Netflix, which Joe Exotic talks about how, you know, why do animals die when they’re in a cage? It’s because their soul dies. And he’s basically talking about how introverted intuition inferior, it’s greatest nightmare is to basically be in jail. And he’s in jail, convicted of attempted murder essentially. And he’s going to be, you know, he’s gonna basically die in prison, and he’s so scared about that. It’s his introverted intuition inferior. And quite frankly, when it comes to inferior functions and incarceration or imprisonment or anything like that, it quite frankly, it is cruel and unusual punishment. It really is, because it’s the most sensitive part of a person’s soul. But most of our society is completely unaware of how that actually works. Whereas you could take someone like Napoleon Bonaparte, and exile him to an island. Doesn’t really affect him that much, because, it’s like, he wasn’t put on that island for being a bad person, which is his introverted feeling, inferior, but his introverted intuition, his freedom of choice is a responsible parent. The thing is that even though he was exiled to an island, well guess what? He ended up coming back and taking over France again and had another series of wars, but eventually he lost to Wellington at Waterloo. So, you know, it is what it is. So, but that just kinda gives you an idea of how everyone is different and people receive punishments differently. This is one of the reasons why some children should be spanked and some children should not be spanked. High introverted sensing, or mostly introverted sensors, who have introverted sensing in their ego, those are the children to spank. Whereas, the children that have introverted tuition in their ego, you just take away their choices. You take away their freedom and they’ll snap to right away. So there’s different ways to approach children when it comes to these different things, et cetera. And if you’re raising an ESTP, you just take away their freedom of choice. But then it’s like you always give them a choice with anything. So what you have to do to beat an ESTP in this regard is you play a xanatos gambit. Take a small child, for example, do a xanatos gambit. This child’s like, I don’t wanna go to bed and he’s not goin’ to bed, he’s not goin’ to bed. An ESTP child will not go to bed because he doesn’t wanna go to bed and you’re constantly telling him to go to bed. And he’s not going to obey your order. So what you do is you go to the child and be like, okay, do you want to go to bed now or do you want to go to bed in five minutes? You give them the choice. The xanatos gambit is that whatever choice the child picks, it benefits you in the end. That’s how you basically get an ESTP to comply. You just make sure that whatever choice they choose benefits you, or is within your interests. Because ESTP’s are very interest based. They’re aware of what you’re getting out of a situation. They’re aware of what they’re getting out of a situation. They just wanna be presented choices where they can at least get something out of it, and they’re not remotely motivated to do anything unless they’re getting something out of it. Which is also an aspect of their freedom of choice. Because from their point of view it’s like, why am I gonna bother making this choice if I’m not going to be getting anything out of it? And so I don’t want to make that choice, and you better respect my freedom for it. So when you say, do you wanna go to bed now or you wanna go to bed in five minutes, the child decides to go to bed in five minutes. It’s like, okay, and then five minutes later you say, it’s time to go to bed, and they’re like, no, no, no. It’s like, well, you made the choice. And they’re like, yeah, okay, you’re right, I did. And then they’ll immediately go to bed like that. And it’s no problem. And xanatos gambit wins in the end, right? But think about this collectively from a macro-level. How many times have people in power or people in government actually deployed xanatos gambit among the masses and then given people bad choices? Well, it happens every election year. For example, the American elections, Americans in the United States of America only have the right to elect, but they do not have the right to select, right? So Americans do not have the right to select their candidates that the party’s put forward for them that are running for office. They have the right to choose from a pool of people that are chosen for them. Which means it’s a constant xanatos gambit. So if there is someone behind the scenes actually secretly controlling the political parties from behind the scenes, they would always choose, regardless of which party is present in the political system, candidates that benefit them. And put that in front of the American populace, and the American populace will choose whichever those candidates, and then at the end of the day, that one candidate benefits the person behind the scenes controlling everybody. This is one of the reasons why people started to realize, especially over the last 10, 15 years, it doesn’t matter what president they elect, it always ends up creating the same endless cycle of problems no matter what. And anything to the contrary is actually an illusion, which funnily enough, ESTP’s are extremely aware of this because of their fear of freedom of choice being taken away. It is absolutely fundamental to who they are as a human being. You cannot have a good relationship, friendship, or any interaction with an ESTP if you ever take away their choice because it will just turn into hatred. And that hatred will lead to rage. And they will force you against your will in order to guarantee their freedom of choice. Because if they have to make the decision between your choice or their choice, they will always pick their own choice. And they will always take away your freedom to guarantee their freedom.
