One of the best new words ever! Like "suss", it fills a real gap in the English language, which is world-class wherever thinking is needed.
I see the notion of “superior” and “inferior” functions in a way that has been very useful for me. For quite a while, I have been using Jung’s typology, with its four functions covering the four vital aspects of a fully human life, as a “practice” in expanding my awareness. We all have all four psychological functions of thinking, feeling, sensation and intuition to cover the vital aspects of a fully human life. That we have them in a certain order of “accessibility,” and that when using one perceiving function or processing function its opposite must be quiescent and not interfere, is a brilliant example of the economy of the human psyche essential for sanity. We are indeed fearfully and wonderfully made.

Syd, I read your beautiful thoughts too and found them to be especially real and moving. You really communicated well your shifting inner images and feelings inspired by love. I thank you!
