  1. [ISTJ] Logic

    ISTJ Forum - The Duty Fulfillers
    What if I desire to become a Professional Logician? How would I go about accomplishing that?
  2. "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...
  3. Knowing Why and How: Ni or Ti?

    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...
  4. [ENFP] When Do You Show Your Te?

    ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    Our third function on the list is Te, extroverted thinking. This is a very visible function as it would appear to be rational and perhaps even aggressive. This contrasts so much with our usual warm vibe we give off. When my Te is engaged it usually creates a bad reaction from my friends and...
  5. Help me brainstorm (for fiction) please!

    Advice Center
    Novice fiction writer here... The draft for my last short story for this course I'm taking is due tomorrow... Although I have the bare bones of my plot, it also leaves me with a lot of logistical questions that I want to figure out before I start writing. Unfortunately, I admit I'm a little...
  6. [ENTP] The Infinite Probability of Things That Could Go Wrong

    ENTP Forum- The Visionaries
    Are you always thinking about things that could go wrong, things that are wrong, or any such thing thereof? I am. Is there always going to be something wrong, and is that what we are/would be like in our relationships with other NTs? And I know we will think about everything about it until our...
  7. What is the real logic behind the ordering of the functions for each type?

    Cognitive Functions
    The ordering of the functions for each MBTI type doesn't always make sense. For example, why would someone strong in Se be weak with Si? Se is about noticing the details in the external world, Si is about remembering details in one's internal world (aka, memory). So why would someone who is a...
  8. A question on values...

    Myers Briggs Forum
    Curious to hear your thoughts. Do you think you can understand the value in something if you can't understand the logic behind it?
  9. [ESTJ] ESTJ's and Logic in their Personal Lives

    ESTJ Forum - The Guardians
    Hello, As an ESTJ, have you ever found yourself gravitating toward a person and becoming emotionally attached, even when you know it is not helpful in the long term? What do you do in these situations and what is your thought process when you decide to break it off? Do you get sad or do you...
  10. ESTJ's and Logic in their Personal Lives

    Myers Briggs Forum
    Hello, As an ESTJ, have you ever found yourself gravitating toward a person and becoming emotionally attached, even when you know it is not helpful in the long term? What do you do in these situations and what is your thought process when you decide to break it off? Do you get sad or do you...
  11. Feelers: Do You See Thinkers As Irrational?

    Myers Briggs Forum
    Wanted to twist a common test question. Most thinkers are thought as rationals, not to say feelers can't be rational, but thinkers have it as a trademark quality to their way of thinking. But in terms of personal perspective nothing is absolutely true. To which I wanted to apply the question to...
  12. [ENFP] Response to a Parent who has a very different MBTI. Thoughts?

    ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    Do I hate you? I know I should not, but there is something black and slimy deep in my heart. An infection, pulsing and growing ever so presently. Big and black, seeping into my bloodstream like raw sewage into a spring stream. I hate you, and truly, I don't see passion not to…. Except I know...
  13. Thinkers: What is logic to you?

    Myers Briggs Forum
    Some might think they are logical whereas others might think otherwise. Either way, the exact use of the word 'logic' can be different for everyone because technically there is no right or wrong and there is a reason behind everything. There's some logic for you, some might see...
  14. Is it just me, or is society a pointless hellhole run by sjs?

    NT's Temperament Forum- The Intellects
    Maybe that's just where I live. I love informal debating, and anytime I raise a point, my conversation partner's rebuttal is 'because those are the rules.' Is it inaccurate to expect more of them? I think not, but maybe this is just the folly of humankind. Everyone is domineering...
  15. INFP living the life of an INTP

    Myers Briggs Forum
    Ever since I was born, NO ONE, including myself, would have ever guessed I use emotions over logic. Despite not liking (but still seeing the usefulness of) math, I've always been far above average in it. I'm halfway through high school (finished Sophomore year today) and am in AP Math...
  16. [ENTP] do people listen to your reasoning

    ENTP Forum- The Visionaries
    When you are explaining something do people just dismiss you. When arguing that is expected but when explaining stuff do people just say no and assume you are wrong? It annoys me that i am always alone in my opinions but kind of cool too. It seems more like an intp problem maybe. Maybe i am intp
  17. [INTP] I don't feel like an INTP although all the tests indicate that I am one ?

    INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    Hello ! I am 21 years old, female. I've known that my type is INTP since I was 17 years old, and I've been always very proud of it actually ( INTP-s ROCK ! :cool: ) , but I've started to have my doubts lately about whether I'm a real INTP or not. These are the points that I find doubtful as a...
  18. [INFP] Praise

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Anybody else feel like they constantly need praise or reassurance in order to feel worthwhile or productive? I try to remain somewhat detached about it, reminding myself that most (not all!) of the time, it's what I think that matters more than what others think. But I internalize the world...
  19. [INTJ] Math=logic?!?

    INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    Basically in the beginning I was very hesitant about wheter or not am I INTJ since I sucked at math so much, so I looked around the internet and I found A LOT of INTJs and INTPs who were quite bad at math aswell. Now both of them are considered to be most logical of all types, while at the...
  20. [INTJ] Logical approach to partner selection?

    INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    Hello fellow INTJ's, this is a thread I made in Reddit and that may be of interest. I'm curious on your opinions on how much logic you try to implement when trying to establish a relationship. Currently due to my plans I'm not interested in starting any relationship but I like writing...
