    Wich Cognitive Function Is That?

    That really should replace Wich Pokemon Is That. :)

    1. I was doing an internet IQ test. They all suck, but there were only 10 questions and I was bored. One of the questions said "How many legs are there in two ducks, two dogs and two cats". I thought it was a very stupid and unclear question. One of the animals could have been genetically modified. Or it could be handicapped. There are plenty of reasons why they wouldn't have respectively two, four and four legs each. The question could even ask how many times the word "legs" is in those animals. This question is impossible to answer. I told this to my friend (through MSN) and she answered something like "Duh. Dogs have four legs. Cats too. Ducks two. Stop being a smartass about everything and answer it the way it is meant to be answered".
    Which functions were I and my friend using?
    I'm thinking either Ne or Ti for me, and Te or Se for my friend?


    Boo, typo in the title. Could a mod fix it?

    Sounds like Ne. Don't know about your friend, though.

    You - Clearly Ne
    Friend - Se or Si, maybe a T something but it's seem more of a clear N vs. S discussion

    <<Se dom. Didn't even consider the other possibilities like handicaps when reading the question and before reading your interpretation of the question. I figured 10 and that was that, no problem. So I'm guessing friend Se or as someone suggested Te since I have that too apparently or maybe a combo of both. I thought Ne for you.

    Me: What's That Function? ...It's Ne!
    Ne: En-ee! En-ee!

    I would likely laugh a bit and then say, "Dude, why would they even ask you to consider handicaps or genetic modification? It's assuming that the animals have the usual amount of legs they're actually born with."

    Your friend was likely using some sort of thinking or sensing function. I'm not sure what I was using in my response. I hadn't even thought of what you did. I guess I just have well-developed Te. :/

    Exactly, a perfectly logical conclusion. Wait you're iNtuitive aren't you supposed to be the opposite of me? lol Especially Ne. At least by my (possible lack of) understanding.

    Supposedly, yes. But I never was really sure about being an ENFP. Or an intuitive, for that matter. But then there are my threads in the Philosophy/Critical Thinking forum. Uhhhhh...

    Some might suggest you're just balanced. I've had my N type interests as well and traits but I know I'm not an iNtuitive as it should be, I'm pure Sensor. It's nice to at least be sure of my functions, it's figuring out the order than makes it difficult. I'm too old to be figuring out or remembering what I did when I was 7 Since curiosity/inquisitiveness seems to be an exclusive N trait, it sort of made me wonder for a while, so as I've been told before, I'm possibly balanced as well. Unless it's just the stereotype thing where you are one and not another with zero exceptions, which I'm not so willing to believe, since that makes the box too limited and everyone is quite different even within types.

    There's a point where its pretty much common sense to just not read more into the question than its really asking XD

    EDIT: To make myself clearer though, those responses are certainly telling of functions- Ne, and I'm thinking maybe something with a T for the friend.

    At the same time, an Ne won't always answer that question that way, and a T won't always be so ridged. I like cognitive function theory, but I think that the first and foremost rule should be that 'people will sometimes surprise you'. An intuitive won't always play with semantics, and a T wont always not.

    Example. Freud said once 'Sometimes, a cigar is just a cigar.'
