Love to openly philosophize of underlying theories and pieces of knowledge. Will go to great lengths to explain in detail inner workings of an idea. Tend to be fascinated by rules and formal logic. Are drawn to philosophical thoughts and exercises with multiple participants. Highly trust their own abilities to investigate reasons behind any action. Appreciate honest opinions regardless of how aggressive they are. Are great at evolving discussions by playing devil’s advocate. Willing to share sources and help others understand their reliability.
Are open to others’ confusion and are quick to help unsure attitudes regarding logic. Have an inherent hope for the future of human intelligence. Believe that anyone can learn anything if they’re willing to invest time into pondering. Walk people through their proofs and arguments with unambiguous explanations. Are accepting of those who ask for help with logical puzzles – while also demonstrating this behavior themselves. Are extremely patient with those who are insecure about their intellect.
May bother other people too much about their opinions which can cause tenseness. Will argue for the sake of arguing without becoming too offended. May spend too much time on very simple ideas in order to expand their mind. Have a tendency to overlook what is most efficient solution to a logical puzzle. Can be easily persuaded by others without fully exploring what they believe themselves.
The 2L function is formed by placing the logic aspect (L) in the flexible position (2nd). Flexible logic (2L) has a strong and open interest in all logical concepts. All 2L types are sufficient at being involved in matters relating to the world of the mind. They are mostly diplomatic about their opinions of higher knowledge, political arguments, scientific thought and their own abilities to reason. These types tend to focus intently on processing, improving and negotiating all things related to the material world. They use this ability to keep others at ease on all matters related to logic.
