  1. 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...
  2. Cognitive Functions
    Is it that the auxiliary, tertiary, and inferior functions are used in ways that support the dominant? Or that they are used less frequently/less intensely than the dominant? Or are they just less-developed? Can one's dominant function be poorly developed but just used frequently as the go-to...
  3. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Hello friends, So, i've been stuck in the Ni-Ti loop for awhile now. I am trying to choose a career path for my future. My perfectionistic tendencies compel me to try and make sense of all of the information that Ni is giving me through Ti. But, because Ti can always find the flaws in whatever...
  4. 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...
  5. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Hey everyone, I've recently re-typed INFP from ENFP, and so, I feel this is the proper community to seek out help from. I believe i'm dealing with a extremely underdeveloped Fi, slinging myself into a perpetual Fi--Si loop. I struggle daily with extreme anxiety, OCD/Avoidant type behaviors...
  6. Cognitive Functions
    Title should explain it all, but if further clarification is needed: I'm an ENFP, and sometimes I feel like I have a better grasp of my Te than I do of my Fi. Sometimes I'm not entirely sure what I value or consider important. However, I have a good understanding of Te, and how to organize my...
  7. NT's Temperament Forum- The Intellects
    Sorry if the title is confusing (i know, it is). This post is about MB types and cognitive function hierarchies, how they correspond and more importantly how they can contradict each other. In this context, this is also somewhat of a "what type am I?" thread: this is the jumping off point for...
  8. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    The functions Inferior and Tertiary acting alone or with someone else? When and How I use my Ti and Se?

    ...aaaaannnd GO!!!
  10. Myers Briggs Forum
    I have a theory about which types get along that I think usually is right. Usually from my experience if one's tertiary function is something, whichever type has the opposite "vert" version of that function usually doesn't get along with them/like them if their type has all opposite letters...
  11. Advice Center
    I just completed my O levels and I made it. However, my options are limited because my score isn't good, and I only have myself to blame for fooling around in secondary school. The past aside, I am having trouble deciding my course of action. I don't know what other courses to pick other than...
  12. INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    I am curious whether other INTPs use their tertiary function (Si) to create axioms to live by. I have seen some in threads regarding what appears to be SI use - interest in music and photography, nostalgia, ect, but have yet to see one regarding the general set of life rules INTPs are...
  13. Cognitive Functions
    I've read this link Tertiary Temptation and find it very interesting, even though I could use more information :).... I've read that some people had difficulties with finding their type because they were "caught in a loop of" using their tertiary function and having weakly developed auxiliary...
  14. Myers Briggs Forum
    So it goes like this, when we have determined whether we want to spend most of our time in the external or internal realm by selecting a dominant function, we often feel too alien and retreat from the other, opposing realm. When we have problems our dominant function can't handle alone, we may...
  15. ENTP Forum- The Visionaries
    How do you think Fe plays out in real life? I know that I am very conscious about the unwritten social rules, and general social expectations in a society and for individuals. I think I developed this early to be able to avoid any public embaressment.. Able is a keyword here, I like control...
  16. ISFJ Forum - The Nurturers
    So how do use ISFJs go by using introverted thinking as a tertiary function? For me, I believe this function allows me to pursue specific interests that are logical to me and understand the mechanics of something. I remember in my early childhood being more interested in things and animals...
  17. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    My whole life I've been called a robot and that of the sort :dry: Lately I've been trying really hard to be more sensitive and to stop ignoring my feelings however easy it is for me. I've wanted to show my love to those around me because I've made too many mistakes by not doing so. I'm...
  18. INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    We talk a lot on here about our Ti and Ne, and we basically never shut up about our inferior Fe function and all the trouble it causes. :tongue: But what about the tertiary Si, Introverted Sensing? To be honest, it's the INTP function that I understand the least, and I'm not quite sure how it...
  19. What's my personality type?
    I made an old post in this forum stating that I was certain about the order of my functions, and of course, I started to challenge how certain I actually was, soon after. I took the old test, one I haven't taken in a very long time, and I think I got some pretty odd results. Before I properly...
  20. Myers Briggs Forum
    Or how frequently is it used?? Does the tertiary function develop stronger with age, and increase with usage?
