Hello,

I am an MBTI YouTuber who is trying to create a new type indicator test that will test a person's ability to actually USE the cognitive functions. Every single test I have found out there asks me how I feel about myself, how I perceive myself, and what I want myself to be. If Jungian Typology is all about neural wiring, shouldn't it be easy to use different, specialized intelligence tests to figure out a person's type?

Of course! You don't assess someone's math skills by asking them how good they are at algebra. You have them do algebra!

That's what Project Arkansas is all about. With your help, I can revolutionize the MBTI community by giving people a reliable test that can't be cheated on. The mistyping virus that inflicts the MBTI community with chronic misunderstanding can be put to an end.

I need your help in coming up with ways to test the specific cognitive functions.

For example, the test for Introverted Sensing (YouTube video format) will show a complex image, and will ask you to recall as many details as possible. Then it will tell a story and at the end will ask you to remember as many details about the story as possible.

Once all the tests have been taken, the user will compare them against each other to determine which functions are the strongest.

Can you help???:smug:

Thanks in advance for your help!!!

An Ni dom like myself, according to Jungian Typology, would invariably do very poorly on an Si test, compared to an Ni test. Because Si is my 8th function.

So the test stands on the foundation of the principles of Jungian Typology.

But what if someone did really well on all the tests? What then?
That can't happen. Jungian Typology operates on the theory that everyone uses some cognitive functions more than others. An Ni dom WILL do poorly on an Si test. While plenty of people have their first 4 functions well developed, the idea that someone can develop all 8 functions to an equal level just defies the very essence of typology.

Okay, fair enough. How would you test something like Fi, for instance?
That's what I am asking the people on this forum. The sensing functions are easy enough. Ni is easy. The thinking functions are a bit more difficult, and the feeling functions will probably be the hardest. See above for my example of the Si test.

Any ideas?
