Recently I've been getting into properly learning the underlying system of the MBTI types and I have a few questions regarding the functional stacks:
- If each type has 4 functions how does a person relate to the functions that are not in their stack? Like, for me as an INTP and not having functions like Se or Fi in my stack, what does this mean about my processing of sensory input and my inner feelings about right and wrong? (As far as I know these functions kinda refer to these things.) I can't say that I don't use them at all, because obviously I see/hear/touch/etc and also have a sense about what is right or wrong to some degree... So what's up with these? :)
- Also something else about functional stacks: My mother is the exact opposite type of me (ESFJ) and growing up I found we just couldn't understand each other at all. Her stack is obviously the exact opposite order of my functions. But shouldn't we have more in common than with a person who I have no shared functions with? Sharing the same functions just in the opposite order shouldn't make us more relatable to each other's worlds than let's say to my previous partner who is (I think) INTJ and who I don't share any functions with? Thoughts on this?
