Netfences, I agree with most of what you say in your post especially about how environmental conditioning and repeatable learned behaviors can affect predisposition. I'm not sure why you chose to pair 'core functions' closer to the brain stem (the base of motor and sensory systems) and the 'built upon functions' with higher brain activity.
Because the core functions take place in the cerebellum and the higher order cognitive thoughts are referenced later in the larger (ie: later developed) brain. The larger brain does have the ability to overrule the primal function which is a good thing for society but the root/first impulse is your MBTI. The best way to think of your MBTI is as your computer firmware. Two different computers with different firmware can both run the same application software and so will appear identical until you start stripping away the installed software. The closer you get to the basic input/output system, the more evident become those root differences. The citations you seek are in the submission process but they are drawn from the biological experiments on the electro-chemical brain function mapping experiments being done today.CosmicYeti said:I'm not sure why you chose to pair 'core functions' closer to the brain stem (the base of motor and sensory systems) and the 'built upon functions' with higher brain activity.
No, fully developed personalities are but not MBTI type. MBTI seems to follow a more physiological map.Cat Enthusiast said:Type is shaped by little influences everywhere.
