  1. Is this inferior Si?

    Cognitive Functions
    When I become sick, I get stressed because I feel like I miss the opportunities. Same thing happens while I'm doing something I don't want. I'm also kinda forgetful about my sickness and I may sometimes use self-destructive matters. While I'm sick, I may become aggressive and angry. And finally...
  2. Does your tertiary/PoLR function have the same effects as your inferior function?

    Cognitive Functions
    I'm trying to type myself from inferior functions because dominant functions weren't enough for me. Here's the question: Does the tertiary have the same effect as inferior? For me, inferior Si fits me the best. I tend to focus on the issue that it makes me feel bad and obssess over it for the...
  3. "Thinking" is more about assessing methods rather than being logical?

    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. Inferior Functions vs Unhealthy Dominant/Auxiliary Functions??

    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...
  5. Subjectivity of Psychological Science & and Type Searching

    Myers Briggs Forum
    ^ This is a link to a brief talk by Michael Pierce about why some people struggle to type themselves. I think as an INTJ (or whatever fckn type I am), subjective confirmation of type is partially acceptable and partially... not inevitable enough. Pierce's discussion of how different functions...
  6. This book just screams Ni

    Cognitive Functions
    I'm currently reading "Anatomy of a Story" by John Truby where he writes how to construct an "organic" story where the plot and characters naturally "grow" out of an original idea instead of mechanically breaking down the story into acts and slap a different genre onto an unoriginal idea. It...
  7. [ISTJ] Who are you hiding?

    ISTJ Forum - The Duty Fulfillers
    Hello fellow ISTJs! I’ve been thinking about our cognitive function stack lately, and noticed that | Si-Te Fi-Ne | is really just an ISTJ and an INFP next to each other. So this means that it’s like we’re all hiding mini INFPs in our minds, suppressing them with our ISTJ-ness while they try to...
  8. A brand-new cognitive function test

    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...
  9. INFJs and Te.

    Socionics Forum
    (Just so we're clear I'm using Myer-Briggs typing even though I'm talking about functions.) So I've been told before that INFJ's vulnerable function is Te and that I should feel uncomfortable around Te-users because they're my "supervisors", and feel comfortable and relaxed around Ti-users...
  10. When you meet the eyes of someone with the same Perceiving function...

    Cognitive Functions
    When I meet the eyes of another Ne user(INFP, INTP, ENFP, ENTP), it's like an extra conversation. It's a look of understanding, and it's also the equivalent of a funny joke—we can be giggling like idiots in no time! It feels good to understand someone and to be understood. And it's great to hear...
  11. NeTiFiSi -- The Ultimate ENXP?

    Cognitive Functions
    I've recently taken a fall down the Jung/MBTI rabbit hole. I feel that I'm in Wonderland. I need some help. I love reading about function theory and how it relates to four-letter typing. I'm pretty clear on the eight function and how they, well, function. Okay, honestly, Ne and Ni are still a...
  12. Not a fan of how Jung describes the cognitive function types?

    Cognitive Functions
    I feel like he would put so much into explanation that it would never seem to go anywhere or have a clear, definite description. Your thoughts?
  13. What is my type?? Pls help me struggling for 6 years already!?!?

    What's my personality type?
    :shocked::shocked::shocked::shocked::shocked::shocked::shocked::shocked: U CAME! Thanks, please help me. Ive been trying to figure my type since 10, now I'm 16. Ive taken test. When I'm 10: IxTJ (borderline N/S), 12: INFJ, 13: gave up on mbti... 15: INxP, 16: u guess. HAHAHA Actually I...
  14. [ESFP] Weak Dom Function (Se) and Strong Aux Function (Fi)

    ESFP Forum - The Performers
    I've wondered for some time, whether there is anything such as overdeveloping your auxiliary function, in my case Fi, or underdeveloping your dominant function (Se). I've been a more typical ESFP as a kid, up until I went to school. However, except for my parents, who are great, not a lot of...

  16. What's my dominant function?

    What's my personality type?
    Hey guys :crazy: I read about how your dominant cognitive function is the most important part of your mbti type, so that's why I'm trying to narrow it down so I can at least have an idea of what category I'm in! I have a pretty good idea (I started really getting into mbti like a month ago and...
  17. INTJ with the function stack of an ENTJ?(Keys2Cognition)

    Cognitive Functions
    Hello! If I've posted this in the wrong forum, I apologize. As I am rather new to this forum, I was unsure whether it belonged here or in the 'Type me' forum. I've taken an array of both MBTI-tests, as well as cognitive functions-tests, and normally type as an INTJ. I recently took the...
  18. My type, your type, everyone's type

    Myers Briggs Forum
    Alright, so, While I am definitely not new to mbti/function theory, I have yet to determine my type once and for all. The tests aren't good for typing, and all the descriptions use words that don't really make sense, in terms of laymen. I tried using the "interaction styles" to determine my...
  19. Personifying the Psyche

    Cognitive Functions
    I just want to say at the beginning that, while this post specifically applies to novels, it doesn't necessarily need to. I'm aiming to present a theory on how the cognitive functions of a person might be personified, not just for writing but in any place where it might be used. * * * As an...
  20. Do animals have cognitive functions?

    Cognitive Functions
    This questiun occured to me a few days ago while I was feeding my dog. I threw a bone right into his mouth from 1 or 2 meters. And he missed it. :rolleyes: My question is, could that be because of that my dog has a weak Se? But is he Intuitive then? How do I find that out? Or do animals'...
