  1. MBTI Perceiving Functions Conprehensively Explained

    Myers Briggs Forum
    First, let’s forget that MBTI has profiles. Second, expect to see slight alterations to the common model. 1. Concrete Perception – Sensory vs Abstract Perception – Intuitive To understand the difference between concrete perception and abstract perception, you have to imagine that we...
  2. [ENTJ] Why so many big cat avatars?

    ENTJ Forum - The Executives
    We- of the other 15 MBTI types- have surely noticed the predominance of ENTJ avatars featuring big cats like tigers, lions, pumas, ocelots, etc. What I am driven to wonder is: Why do you guys gravitate towards big cat avatars? What do these avatar pics mean to you guys? Any clarification would...
  3. Explain Socionics to me

    Socionics Forum
    I've never had anyone try to explain socionics in a good way and it seems as if my current perception of it being a very shallow system (mainly based on how it seems to be more about relationships and surface stuff than the "why") is quite wrong, so please - give your best shot :cool: I want to...
  4. [INTP] INTP Perspectives on Understanding Men

    INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    Is there such a thing as male or female behavior? I don't think so. Still, there are situations where some people do display stereotypical gender identifying behavior. Sometimes it's easy to see, but not so easy to understand. What have you noticed? What don't you understand? What do you have...
  5. [ENTJ] Acting as announcer/narrator?

    ENTJ Forum - The Executives
    ENTJs, do you ever find yourselves acting as announcers while watching something with other people? For instance, my ENTJ dad has a habit of explaining a scene in a movie as it's happening or talking over the announcers while watching a sport. Is this something other ENTJs can relate to?
  6. INTJ or ISTJ ?

    What's my personality type?
    I'm not sure whether I'm an INTJ or ISTJ. I always test 50/50 on iNtuision and Sensing. I realise it has to do with cognitive functions, but it's very much to read about and I have very little motivation. :\ All I want to know is the difference(s) between INTJ and ISTJ, explained in an easy way...
  7. Help understanding functions?

    Cognitive Functions
    Hi! I think I have a fairly good grip on what the functions are individually (pretty much), however, I'm not really understanding how the whole system works. What does it mean for a function to be dominant, auxiliary, tertiary, or inferior? How do the functions correlate? What causes shadow...
  8. [INFJ] Explaining intuition to an INFJ

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    I have a friend who I sincerely believe is an INFJ. She isn't into personality types or even psychology in general so I couldn't get her to take the test, but the INFJ profiles I've read describe her quite accurately: she's warm, caring, emotionally sensitive, artistic (she dresses well and she...
