  1. [ENFP] Extraverted Thinking & Introverted Sensing in ENFP

    ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    I think a similar thread has been posted before, but it's very old (like, 2011 old). I'm just curious about what personality traits of an ENFP come out as extraverted thinking or introverted sensing. It's pretty confusing to me since they're the tertiary and inferior functions. I've been...
  2. Theory About Cognitive Functions and Their Effect on General Society

    Cognitive Functions
    After much thought and reflection about our current society, I have come up with a rather far-fetched but sensible theory on how cognitive functions have molded our society into what it is today. First of all, Si is believed to be the most common dominant or auxiliary function (xSxJ's are...
  3. How do you use your functions?

    Cognitive Functions
    I know I'm not the first person to notice that the same cognitive functions look very different from person to person. This makes it a bit difficult to really understand the different functions. So what I'm asking is for you to post your functions and how you use them. For example: ENTP: Ne -...
  4. [INTP] How can INTPs stop using Si to obsess over insignificant details?

    INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    This is a pretty significant problem for me, to the extent where it's one of my primary stressors in life (to be fair, I have a good life overall)... especially when things are going well in general and I have nothing serious to worry about, I'll start obsessing over insignificant details (it's...
  5. [INTP] How can an INTP develop Si?

    INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    I'm quite comfortable with Ti, Ne, and even Fe. But I've never paid much attention to my Si, and I've recently noticed that it's probably a weak point/blind spot of mine. What can I do to develop it? I'd like to know what concrete steps I can take. A "how-to" guide would be awesome.
  6. [INFP] INFP? ISFP? Ni? Si?

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    I don't know whether i'm an ISFP or an INFP! I seem like an ISFP with lower, but healthy & positive Si; or an INFP with Ni that likes concrete experiences (Se?). ~I like both previously experienced and new concrete experiences because I like the way they make me feel. Although I do so really...
  7. [ENTP] Ask an ENTP! Ask anything you have ever been wondering about us, the Visionaries!

    ENTP Forum- The Visionaries
    Hey everyone! I am Octopus1 and I am an ENTP-A. Like any extrovert, I like talking and prefer to answer questions, than to make them! And... Like any MBTI with a tendeny to Narcissistic Personality Disorder, my favorite topic is talking about myself! So go ahead and ask me ANYTHING you...
  8. Jai Brooks MBTI type (What type is the Janoskian's cutie and Ariana Grande's ex?)

    What's my personality type?
    Hey guys, so I have been wondering this over a year. I have had a crush on this guy for some time now and I was wondering if you can help me type him. I have little to no idea what his mbti type is. Please help me, that would mean A LOT to me, since he was a crush of mine. Ok, so here is what...
  9. Cognitive Functions In Pictures! ADD YOURS!!!!!!!!

    Cognitive Functions
    Hello budddddies! I thought about cognitive functions a lot lately and I was imagining how each of us "see them". At least that is something I am interested in, because I am a visual thinker. So here are my perceptions of each cognitive functions. You can add yours and explain how you see each...
  10. SJ's: Your opinion on THRILLS! (Poll)

    SJ's Temperament Forum- The Overseers
    So, do you guys like going on roller coasters, skydiving, bungee jumping, horror movies...all that heart-pounding, adrenaline, stereotypically Se stuff? (You don't have to like all of them, this is just about thrills in general.) I'm making this because lots of SJ people i know are very opposed...
  11. Explain how ENTPs and ENFPs work. Ti vs Fi; Fe vs Te! Help me figure out my type.

    What's my personality type?
    Hello everybody. I am trying to see if I am an ENTP or an ENFP. It is certain that I have Ne as my dominant function. I understand how Ne is explained very well. However, I have a little trouble distinguishing Ti vs Fi, as well as Fe vs Te. I have done the test many times and have ALWAYS been...
  12. Si/Ne vs Ne/Si, How can you know which comes first? Order of cognitive functions

    SJ's Temperament Forum- The Overseers
    Si and Ne are always together, but how can you tell which comes first using only cognitive function analysis, particularly in Introverted types. Ignore the T/F preference. In other words, IN_P vs IS_J. Also I'm not sure if the general J/P distinctions are as accurate for introverts (since I_Ps...
  13. What do y'all think of Spam World?

    SJ's Temperament Forum- The Overseers
    I mean, SJs stereotypically hate things that are WAY apart from conventions, but i want to know what you guys REALLY think, not what your types STEREOTYPICALLY think. Spam World is definitely an unconventional idea. But also a practical one, in my POV - that way, it's less likely for people to...
  14. [INTP] INTP vs Guardians vs Idealists

    INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    I'm an INTP living with: - an ESTJ father who always asks you to do something for him RIGHT HERE and NOW, and complains as soon as you start helping him. - an (quiet) ESFJ mother whose purpose is solely to make all the drama in the family. - an (textbook example of) ISTJ younger brother who put...

    ENTP Forum- The Visionaries
    Hello, comrades! I made this useful guide that I'm hoping many of us will resonate with in regards to becoming the geniuses we want to be and have potential for. If you want to share this guide, you don't have to ask as long as you give me credit for it. Disclaimer: This set of observations...
  16. ISTJ or ESTJ?

    What's my personality type?
    Hello all, For the longest time, I've always identified with ISTJ. I'd say I'm 85% sure of that. Recently, I was reminded that a lot more people are extroverts than they would like to admit. On top of that, I've been noticing more and more use of Te in my actions, as opposed to Si. As a child...
  17. ENFP Girl from England

    Hello guys, my name's Amani and I just created my account yesterday. After looking at the threads for ages, I finally thought "Why not make an account?". So anyways, I hope to have interesting debates with you guys (Ne doms and auxiliaries, I'm looking at you) and hopefully I wouldn't be too...
  18. Ni vs Si

    Cognitive Functions
    The two functions I have the hardest time figuring out. Maybe someone here can define them and give examples of how they're used.
  19. Can anyone see any wrongness in my description of functions?

    Cognitive Functions
    These are my definition of the 8 functions. Perceiving function : A function to gather information. Judging function : A function to change a condition. Extroverted Perceiving (Pe) function : Perceiving function which the information come from 5 senses Introverted Perceiving (Pi) function ...
