  1. 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...
  2. 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...
  3. Cognitive Functions
    First, understand which category you fall under: Category 1 = Uses clues in external world to comprehend info, uses personal understanding to make judgments/decisions (extraverted perceiving, introverted judging -> good at thinking on the spot) Category 2 = Uses personal understanding to...

  5. Myers Briggs Forum
    So this thread is intended for ENFP's to share those values of ours that we hold so dearly and don't often show. We tend to ignore traditional rules of society, like not flirting with everyone we see, being on time, cleaning things, not accidentally leaving your kid at the supermarket, blah blah...

    INTJ trying to understand ISFJ (emphasis on "trying")(seriously I'm clueless) First post here, so pardon any errors. Im an intj (male) with an isfj (female) friend. We're fairly close to each other, she's really the only one I've really opened up to and disclosed much of the whole "intj...

    [Rant] PARENTS, Socializing as an Introvert and "Setting an Example for Siblings" Hello! [rant] Just had a fight with my dad over not being social enough for his silly standards. Yeah, I do avoid any kind of socializing most of the time, because well, that's what I'm like and I guess if you...

  13. INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    Is there such a thing as male or female behavior? I don't think so. Still, there are situations where some people do display stereotypical gender identifying behavior. Sometimes it's easy to see, but not so easy to understand. What have you noticed? What don't you understand? What do you have...
  14. General Psychology
    I'd really appreciate your advice. :) I've never ever had a female friend. It really depresses me when I see girls socializing and making long-lasting friendships, while I'm left aside wondering what the hell is wrong with me. I'm even more confused because I get along great with guys so I...

  16. ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    Well yeah, I mean, I understand it's because of Fi and Te and their functions are 'stress relieving' and yadda yadda yadda. But what is it about those functions that relieves stress? What about them makes it so exhilarating to hang out with those Fi an Te Doms? Every time I meet any Te or Fi...

  18. Enneagram Personality Theory Forum
    It seems like there is an endless abundance of information on the Enneagram and its inner workings. However, with such a large variety of knowledge it can become overwhelming and confusing. In this post, I hope to simplify that knowledge into an easy-to-read explanation of the Enneagram and...
  19. ESFJ Forum - The Caregivers
    I was wondering what makes you guys you. What exactly is your train of thought? Why do you do the things that you do? What peeves you off? Or any other thing that would be helpful in dealing with an ESFJ The reason I am asking is because I have a lot of conflict with ESFJs in my life. I just...
  20. Cognitive Functions
    Hi! I think I have a fairly good grip on what the functions are individually (pretty much), however, I'm not really understanding how the whole system works. What does it mean for a function to be dominant, auxiliary, tertiary, or inferior? How do the functions correlate? What causes shadow...
