  1. Trying to settle things down with the MBTI (a bit of a rant)

    Myers Briggs Forum
    A bit of context. I tried many times to understand the MBTI and I was going to abandon once and for all. But it would have been one of those many times where if I don't recognize myself in a paradigm (a way to see things, a sacrality) I just can't understand it. And guess what, it's still the...

  6. Introverted Intuition as explained by an Ni-dom

    Cognitive Functions
    Hi folks, INFJ here. Before getting to the meat of this post, I first want to explain why I decided to write it. I first got the idea to write about Ni as an Ni to--hopefully--clear up some of the confusion about the function. While I realize a large part of the PerC user base are indeed INJs...
  7. How do you experience Ni?

    Cognitive Functions
    Hi. One thing that's always fascinated me about cognition, specifically personality theory/Carl Jung in general, is how introverted intuition works. Maybe it's because it's my dominant function, maybe I'm just following the internet hype train about, but I'm often curious as to how other people...
  8. Self actualization

    Blog
    In my opinion, we absolutely MUST learn to discipline or educate ourselves on introspection and emotional intelligence. We must stop looking at things as First, Second, Third, so on. To those people who have reached self-actualization, you want other to succeed, more so than they do...

  11. INTP with strange cognitive functions?

    Cognitive Functions
    Lately, I have found myself very confused about my cognitive functions in relation to my personality type.. In particular, I'm baffled on how Ni, a shadow function of my breed, would be my most developed? I find that I relate very much to both the Ne and Ni descriptions. I remember reading a...
  12. Developement of cognitive functions

    Cognitive Functions
    Ok through my readings many sources say that through our life time we learn to have better control over our cognitive functions, striving to balance ourselves out. My question is when we are in the process of developing a particular function would that function become most noticeable in the...
