Aggressive in nature – Results focused – Sufficient at being involved – Bold
The confident attitude is characterized by a strong interest and focus on the aspect that creates this first function. The function is aggressive in nature, focused on the results, and sufficient at involving itself the details surrounding whatever aspect it holds. This function is generally the dominant feature of one’s disposition from an outsiders perspective.
Since this function is bold and fixated, the owner has both the readiness and desire of creatively influencing the environment. However, the self-focused effectiveness of the function impedes the communication of results to others in an acceptable and coherent form. This phenomenon is characterized by what Afanasyev described as “the first function is a gift to himself.”
The owner incorporates the interests of others with difficulty due to the function’s dominance. Attention to the owner’s personal view of performance makes it unprepared for dialogue because there is little perception of others’ evaluation.
