Casual dating vs friends with benefits

The Perspectives process allocates as much of its attention as it can get away with on the ‘a-ha’ moment, whereas Authenticity is constantly checking in with the individual’s emotional thermostat.Understanding the difference between these two functions is crucial to understanding the difference in types.It’s especially confusing when the Authenticity user can see a case for almost anything, so what’s true for them has to be carefully parsed out.Each decision and its subsequent emotional impact is cataloged, however, and future decisions become easier and faster.INFPs, on the other hand, lead with a process called Introverted Feeling, which we call “Authenticity.”Authenticity is a decision-making function (technically called a “judging function”), and works by being deeply in touch with how one is emotionally impacted by events.Decisions are made by “checking in” to ensure that they are in alignment with one’s values and identity.

Harmony is technically called Extraverted Feeling, in contrast with INFP’s Driver process of Introverted Feeling (Authenticity).There is a saying that the more personal something is the more universal it is.Over time Authenticity understands that they aren’t alone in their feelings.Although Authenticity is truly decision-making, it is easily the slowest of the four decision-making processes (the other three being Effectiveness, Accuracy and Harmony).Authenticity needs to be able to register how something is feeling viscerally, and often an INFP won’t know the right decision to make until after they’ve made it.
