My hope is that these videos won't be about any CT "basics", but will talk more about "additional" or "supplementary" information that may need discussion to be fleshed out. A kind of "rough draft" or free-flow talk about patterns (social, developmental, etc) i've noticed, but haven't really put into any proper definition yet.
Please pardon my horrible Ti momentum halting and jittering which will be quite evident across this free-flow video series.
Alas, this is only for you guys. (I'll keep these set to Unlisted on youtube, cuz the vid quality is terrible) Please feel free to reply/share/record any thoughts you have to anything~

Development as Visible by Vultology
#1) Standard Development Typically: -- Conscious: 1st function -- Unconscious: 2nd 3rd, 4th Difficult to tell function pairings because functions have not been properly differentiated. Person may look like a "general introvert" or "general extrovert" or a "general P-lead" etc. No strong oscillation can be seen within one or both pairings. This is often the case with someone's middle two functions. So for example, someone can appear to have Ne as primary but Fi or Ti are both non-visible because there is no oscillation with Je happening, from which to differentiate the functions. Essentially, the rest of the functions remain unconscious in their operation within a person.
#2) Individuation/Differentiation Typically: -- Conscious: 1st, 2nd -- Unconscious: 3rd, 4th Easiest to tell apart, as the top two functions are differentiated from the unconscious, and active. Able to extrapolate the nature of the polar two functions this way, but can still tell which ones are primary.
Easy to tell function quadrant, but very difficult to tell energetic quadrant, because person has competent use of all four regions -- blurring the line between the four. Type is best described as a "general Alpha/Beta/Delta/Gamma" type --- as far as profiles go --- because the inhibitions usually arising from having a prioritization, are no longer applicable.
I switch back and forth between FeNi-Ni and NiFe-Fe for his type, but again like Alain De Botton, it hardly makes a difference because he's got a great balance. And you can see this visually, as per the above notes on development.
I forgot to mention what Fi/Te views look like when Fi is heavily prioritized above Te. An example of this can actually be found in the Encyclopedia of Fairies by Katherine Briggs, under the seelie court.
Fi, when prioritized, would advocate respect of the individual but also protection of nature, life and beauty in all its forms. So advocacy for the environment, for animal rights, for rights of identity, and so forth. This does take a level of government intervention, so Fi will be for-intervention in cases that help ensure the sacredness of personhood and life, however they choose to define that.
This is of course all only talking in a vacuum, about how I think the function pairings would produce their own philosophy (as I see often happen when there's high concentration of a population with certain function pairs). In a very mixed political landscape, as may exist, the spread of opinions across people can easily make any type adapt any views. The Judgment functions of any one person are capable of accepting/adapting the reasoning behind the stances of the opposite pair, even though a person may not be prone to come up with the stance on their own.
I also left out the high-Je vs high-Pe consideration, as per the other thread, which also contributes. Putting high-Je vs high-Pe together alongside the presence of either Te/Fi or Fe/Ti would make for an interesting diagram for people's more probable political views. A type of hypothesis, maybe? To see if this is accurate or not. Of course it'd never be definitively predictive, but hopefully a kind of "statistically likely" estimation of political ideologies as emergent from their own type.
I do anticipate the distribution would not be even, as already we can see how many SiTe and TeSi are involved (for example) in the republican party, and socialist guys like Obama and Bernie Sanders are Fe-leads.
