What Each Myers-Briggs Type Does In A Rut (The Rise Of The Inferior Function) Each Myers-Briggs personality type reacts to prolonged stress in a slightly different form.
While there may be a simple answer for helping each type through a bad day, the solution to helping each type snap out of a rut is slightly more complicated. We tend to fall into ruts when our first three cognitive functions have failed to aid us in a particular situation and we are forced to rely on our inferior function to get by.* Because we are not used to relying primarily on our inferior function, doing so often facilitates the development of an unhealthy mindset (or a ‘rut’) that we have trouble snapping out of. Each type’s rut manifests a bit differently – and each type requires something different to help turn their unhealthy mindset around.
