3F – Insecure Physics
The 3F attitude is characterized by a self-negative and others-negative disposition. This disposition creates an attitude that is plagued by an awareness of limitations, weakness, harm, negative consequences, and manipulation within the realm of physics. This awareness applies internally, externally, and within the exchange of information in the aspect. 3Fs have a keen sense of how they can be harmed by physics. The strategies that each 3F employs to deal with the insecurity may differ in behavior or execution but the core attitude of subjective vulnerability and insecurity will remain consistent for all 3Fs. Below are some common beliefs and behaviors that you may see with 3Fs. Please keep in mind that these are generalities and do not represent the vast sub-archetypes held within the overall 3F attitude.
Have a distinct confusion and insecurity about their own bodily practical needs. Worry about physical flaws which, in turn, can inhibit confidence. May miss cues that others are intimately interested in them. Become overwhelmed with health concerns and lack of solutions. Are extremely sensitive to public opinion on style, makeup, aesthetics, fashion, and how the body operates. Require a lot of feedback in order to make sure they are taking care of themselves properly. Often feel a nagging sense of urgency to improve their living space. Can be sensitive to filth, dirt, and grime. Sometimes convince themselves they are sick, diseased, malnourished or dying regardless if evidence points to the contrary.
Overthink purchases and their practical use. Tend to have indulgent moments where caution is thrown to the wind, followed by deep regret. Obsessively research side effects of illnesses. Can be vain perfectionists in order to mitigate physical apprehension. May resort to jealousy and possessiveness in order to keep control over their environment. Can heavily mistrust declarative advice on practical living. Collect facts about home improvement, health tips and project how-tos. Will obsess over how to stay active and keep busy in life, potentially spending hours upon hours in the gym or working out.
May ignore side effects or illnesses due to the anxiety that it can cause. Can avoid paying attention to the practical matters in their lives, missing out on opportunities to add value and worth to their surroundings. Distrust outside opinion of their living space, aesthetic, or anything physical. Will attempt to stay out of the lime-light, refusing to make themselves center of attention in fear of being judged for how they look or what they are physically capable of. Can neglect keeping track of their money and finances as it invokes too much stress. May act as if nothing bothers them, denying any food or health related anxiety.
Become comfortable in their own skin, facing the anxiety rather than running from it. Learn the best way to manage their lifestyle through healthy eating and exercise in an equanimous fashion. Find their own unique style and preferences and are able to stick to them without fear of being judged. Become experts in a certain area of the material world, while being able to teach and instruct others on how it operates. May zone in on their ability to manage money and surroundings and feel a sense of calm once they have mastered this endeavor. Can become secure in how their body reacts to all foods and slowly start to reduce anxiety related to it.
The 3F attitude is formed by placing the physics aspect (F) into the insecure position (3rd). Insecure physics (3F) has an apprehensive and unsure attitude towards all concepts of the physical world. All 3F types believe they are insufficient at being involved in matters relating to the material world. They are mostly anxious about their opinions on tastes, belongings, comforts, aesthetics, value, worth, sensations and practical skills. These types tend to have a shaky and unstable relationship with how they process all things related to the physical reality. They tend to need clarification and feedback from others when engaging in all matters related to physics.
