  1. Cognitive Functions
    This was probably asked a lot of times but, the internet is full of cognitive function descriptions, some are more accurate than others. According to you, what's the difference between real cognitive functionz and stereotypes or oversimplifications for each cognitive function? How would you...
  2. Myers Briggs Forum
    Curious to see how kindness/love plays out in types who are not Fe-dominant, or do not have Fe in their primary stack at all. Also because I believe kindness/caring for others is NOT AT ALL dependent on the functions you use. Sure, being strong with Fe will make it easier to care for others...
  3. Myers Briggs Forum
    All right so I have another account in which I forgot my password, but let me say MBTI and cognitive functions is way too complicated than I thought it was. When this youtuber said "You can't self type" I was like BS and self typed myself, after maybe a good 20 hours of research, as an ENFP. But...
  4. Cognitive Functions
    Based on Carl Jung's descriptions of the thinking functions in his book, "Psychological Types", it seems like they are more about evaluating decision methods rather than being logical. This is especially for Te, which seems to mainly be about ensuring that methods have effective outcomes. Jung...
  5. Cognitive Functions
    Any type can speak the truth as well as evade it to keep everyone happy, but the major differences are found in the REASONS each type will do so, and I wanted to see if my interpretations of those reasons have any accuracy. From what I understand about the differences among Te, Fe, Fi, Ti, it...
  6. Cognitive Functions
    I've read general summaries of healthy/unhealthy versions of the 16 types and have my own speculations about how those can be demonstrated by specific behaviors in real life, but I'm curious to see how other people have experienced healthy versions of any of the 16 types-- specifically, what...
  7. Cognitive Functions
    I've noticed that most people agree upon xxTP for certain TV show characters that aren't necessarily considered smart, intellectual, or curious like most dominant/auxiliary Ti users tend to be. For example, there seems to be a general consensus that Charlie Harper from Two and a Half Men is ESTP...
  8. Cognitive Functions
    I've been thinking of Ni as detailed, organized ideas and possibilities; Ti as personal understanding of why/how something works. But some people have been describing Ni as understanding the why/how as well. So if someone is primarily interested in understanding why/how something works, are they...
  9. Cognitive Functions
    I have a handful of friends and acquaintances that I actually know well enough, and all of them are xxFJs or xxFPs (at least the ones who know their MBTI, the ones who don't I can definitely see the Fe and/or Fi in them). Thus, I believe I have a good understanding of what healthy and unhealthy...
  10. Cognitive Functions
    How can you tell whether someone is using an inferior function or an unhealthy version of their dominant/auxiliary function? For example, if someone is emotionally unstable and consistently avoiding certain things in life in order to preserve their state of well-being and keep a happy emotional...
  11. Cognitive Functions
    Selfish versions of each judging type Te = it's all about making my own plans to make everything work the way I want it to work, using my factual knowledge (Si) and/or ideas (Ni) Ti = it's all about using whatever I can understand on the go to make anything work the way I want it to work...
  12. Cognitive Functions
    It seems like people with Fe in their cognitive stack are more likely to have their moods affected by external sources, such as how other people are behaving, how other people are treating them. Their moods may even be affected by certain parts of the environment that may not have to do with...
  13. Cognitive Functions
    For those with Te as their dominant or auxiliary, what does it look like when they incorporate the other judging functions? My assumption is that they primarily focus on making things work (because of their strong Te), and then secondarily use Fi to ensure that they personally like what works...
  14. Cognitive Functions
    Hi! I'm stopping by here to share a test I made recently for both MBTI and the cognitive functions. The test has 106 (105 actually since one of them is a dud) questions that assess your scores using three different methods: a Grant/Brownsword-based algorithm, an axis-based algorithm, and a...

    Why you may not be making the best decisions Today we have Antonia and Joel of Personality Hackers talking to us about Personal Growth. We were last talking about the 4 main dichotomies in Myers Briggs. The best way to grow is by first understanding your natural talents and strengths. An easy...
  16. INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    Despite what’s said about intps and tertiary Si, when it comes to knowing yourself, do you feel like you have a good or bad memory? Especially in terms of not putting in a conscious effort to remember something, do you find it easy to recall things.
  17. Cognitive Functions
    I'm doing some research so if everyone would be kind and to the point... **Please state your type AND dominant cognitive function** Explain your usually method for tackling your goals and going after what you want in life. What do you focus on first, and what steps do you take to get there?

  19. What's my personality type?
    100% sure I'm either an INTJ or INTP. I know cognitive functions wise these two types are completely different. But I've spent too much time reading on them to the point where I'm just confusing myself. 1. Is there anything that may affect the way you answer the questions? For example, a...
  20. INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    In a hypothetical scenario, which character do you think would outlast the other? Do you believe an INTJ's cognitive functions are specifically geared to make him/her a stronger villain, or hero? Is there any existing media (books, movies, tv shows) where something like this is depicted?
