jungian cognitive functions

  1. Hello there, could you please type me?

    What's my personality type?
    Hello there guys, I've been studying Myers-Briggs and Jungian functions for almost 2 years. I have contributed to some pages mostly typing other people or fictional characters based on cognitive functions, however since my first introduction to MBTI it didn't matter how much I tried to see these...
  2. Jungian-Mayhem (or a plethora of questions about the functions)

    Cognitive Functions
    I've begun reading Jung's work on psychological types, and I have quite a few doubts: - Are extroverted and introverted functions qualitatively different (that is, in addition to the differences that come from the content with which they are concerned)? In writing about introverted thinking...
  3. INFJ: A Jungian Cognitive Function Analysis

    INFJ, or Introverted iNtuitive Feeling Judger, is a label borrowed from MBTI nomenclature and now applied to the Jungian Cognitive Function set {Ni, Fe, Ti, Se}. Dominant: Introverted iNtuition (Ni) "I just like putting all of life's little dreams in perspective. The real world is inside my...
  4. Function Axes Described in Simple Terms

    Cognitive Functions
    So I've been interested in the idea of how the cognitive functions interact with each other in opposing ways. It really helps to simply a lot of data and make it easy to type people rather than thinking of all the functions as independent pieces. (Michael Pierce and Celebrity Types have some...

  8. New and slightly confused

    Years ago I tested as ENFP, which seemed to make a lot of sense, considering it's said to be one of the most difficult people for permanent relationships. Now I've taken the Jungian test here with results: ESTP or ISFJ or ESFJ Once I read the rationale provided, I decided to take the test...
  9. Enid Coleslaw MBTI?

    Guess the type
    I can't really put my finger on what she is- I think INTP, but does she have Fe as one of her functions? She seems like an INTP? But I'm pretty confused? Does anyone know what she is?
  10. Translations and word meanings

    Cognitive Functions
    There seems to be a need to redefine some of the original verbage used by Jung. Or maybe just retranslate, as many seem to be hung up by the old terminology/direct translation. One of the biggest offenders is "rational" and "irrational" functions. Remember, Jung didn't do his research in...
  11. [Enneagram Type 5] Any ENTP (LIE) Fives here?

    Type 5 Forum - The Investigator
    I've heard that they are the "introverted extroverts". I'm having such difficulty figuring out my MBTI type and Socionics is confusing me even more . . . :frustrating: If I were an ENTP (or an INFJ), it might possibly put an end to this confusion; so if they're are any ENTP 5s; I would be...
  12. INTP?ENTJ? Need some helpp.

    Hey guys, kind of need some help here. So... I've always felt that I was an ENTJ, but recently, after graduating college, I have found myself in an odd directionless phase, a little overwhelmed by the opportunities.

  14. The Cognitive Functions as Design Approaches...?

    Cognitive Functions
    Hi guys, an xNFP design student here. I was reading a magazine focussed on what they call "design thinking". Their analysis was really interesting, and I found some of their spiels focused on "design thinking" to be fascinating in that they almost perfectly fit with the function of Extraverted...
