I remember first looking into cognitive processes and being like, "Whhhaaa?" Soo I wanted to make a video on some ground rules on how to memorize cognitive processes for each type.

Rules:
For every type, the Dominant & Auxiliary are in opposite attitudes.
Extravert: Dominant function is extraverted; auxiliary function is introverted.
Introverts: Dominant function is introverted; auxiliary function is extraverted.

J/P ALWAYS points to the function that is extraverted.
J always points to the third letter in the type formula (T or F, The Judgement Function).
P always points to the second letter in the type formula (S or N, the Perception function).

For Extraverts: JP points to the extraverted function which is the dominant. The other function is the auxiliary and in introverted.

For Introverts: JP points to the extraverted function which is auxiliary. The other function is the dominant and is introverted.

(sorry I didnt show all my paper on the camera)

I always wanted to say that what I meant at the end of the video is... if you are having trouble deciding what type you are... You may not be the type you came out on MBTI assessment/test. It may be that in your history, you had experiences that caused you to develop a preference early which others of your type don't develop til later. Or, your early experiences may have caused you to distrust and fail to develop the strengths of your type. Also, it is possible to have a very strong cognitive process that throws off your balance as a type.

Since this has been bumped, and is roughly the same topic as this one, I figure my reply to that covers pretty much what I want to say in relation to this:

Worth mentioning that this isn't the only theoretical model out there. The official MBTI makes no claim about the attitude of the tertiary, for instance (so, for example, an ENFJ's stack would thus be Fe-Ni-S-Ti), and a research study concerning functions (part one here, part two here) explicitly had the tertiary as oriented opposite to the dominant rather than with the same attitude (so an ENFJ's stack would thus be Fe-Ni-Si-Ti), which I'm led to believe is in accordance with Isabel Myers' take on things. An "XXYY" model - where the auxiliary shares its attitude with the dominant, e.g., Fe-Ne-Si-Ti - also exists, as one possible interpretation of Jung.

My main point is, I don't see any particular reason to suppose that this function model - the one that most on here apparently adhere to - is necessarily the correct one. But it is an accurate guide, under the XYXY model, for how to determine the function stack given only the letters, and whilst I think most are familiar enough with the theory to know this information already, that doesn't diminish its value for those who aren't aware of it, provided that people are aware this is neither the "officially sanctioned" model (whatever that's actually worth), nor does it have any other special reason to be considered more accurate than others.
