  1. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    I got a new job—yay! Still a band directing and elementary job, like my previous one, but I will be the only music teacher in the school district. I think it will be better for me because I hated working with the lead band director at the other school. Now I am (somewhat) free to do what I want...
  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. 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...
  4. 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...
  5. 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...
  6. 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...
  7. 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...
  8. 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...
  9. 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...
  10. 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...
  11. 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...
  12. Cognitive Functions
    A psychiatrist is required to be empathetic and very analytical about their patients' emotions, thinking patterns, and overall well-being. A very strong use of Fe therefore seems to be a must. Yet, both INTJ and INFJ are the most commonly chosen types that people would believe are most likely to...
  13. Cognitive Functions
    It seems easy to jump to the conclusion that people who have dom/aux Fi would be more driven to do something because it makes them happy while those who have dom/aux Te would be more driven to doing something because it fulfills reasonable goals. However, this seems like a weak interpretation of...
  14. Cognitive Functions
    How can you tell if someone is using Ti or Fi?
  15. Cognitive Functions
    Any specific scenarios demonstrating the contrast been Ti and Te?
  16. Cognitive Functions
    The way I currently interpret Te and Fe is that Te is focused on making things work for the external world situations while Fe is focused on making things meaningful for the external world situations. Therefore, I think that's why "J" types tend to plan ahead more and include the Te/Fe functions...
  17. Cognitive Functions
    I can see how a dominant Fi would mean the person is very in touch with their emotions and their feelings are very important to them and therefore feelings can be easily hurt. But also, an inferior Fi would mean the person is less in touch with their emotions and therefore less able to control...
  18. Cognitive Functions
    I understand that Ne "gathers" abstract ideas and possibilities spontaneously, while Ni "organizes" abstract ideas and possibilities and is therefore more focused and orderly than Ne. But what exactly does it mean to "gather" or "organize" abstract ideas? What are some examples of how these look...
  19. Cognitive Functions
    Does having a strong Se function contribute to having a good attention span and maintaining focus for long periods of time during lectures, reading, and anything happening in the external environment? How do each of these perceiving functions contribute to focus, concentration, problem-solving...
  20. Myers Briggs Forum
    Curious to see what the general trends look like for different types. On a scale of 1-10 (1 = strongly/completely dislike; 10 = strongly/completely like), how much do you like eating alone? And how much do you like eating with others?
