    Default Developing Tertiary and Inferior Functions

    Those of you who have developed these functions, how do you believe their growth has affected your perception/interaction of the world?

    I have a well developed tertiary function, extraverted thinking.

    I think this makes me a lot less flaky then others of my type. It makes me more successful at work, more logical and goal-oriented. More grounded, more focused, and more organized. Less aimless.

    My tertiary is Fi.
    It's helped me care more about other people's feelings and desires.

    The tertiary is sometimes a handicap that confounds me and thwarts my ability to make a decision.

    My tertiary is very well developed, but unfortunately my auxiliary got neglected in the process. So now I have to work on my Fe and Se instead of Ti and Se...

    My tertiary function is orange juice. It helps give me vitamin C.

    I developed my tertiary, at least superficially, more as I age

    According to the results from one of the tests, My Si is fairly well developed.

    I need to work on my Fe, however-- though I think it has gotten stronger as well. Leaving Se, as what needs development.

    Your Possible Type Code
    According to the traditional sorting method of finding the most-used functional pairs (such as Fi-Ne), your type might be:

    Possible result: INTP


    We are also trying a new sorting method to try to indicate best-fit type. This method is experimental and may not match your type.

    Possible result: INTP

    Your Developmental Curve
    This model attempts to graph a 'developmental curve'. Theoretically, people should choose simpler, less sophisticated aspects of the cognitive processes more often than they choose complex, more sophisticated aspects. The simpler aspects of each process are necessary to perform the more sophisticated aspects! However, because the phrases are in development, this measure has questionable validity.

    Your self-assessment curve = -3

    -- A curve less than 0 indicates you checked simpler phrases more often than sophisticated ones. This is expected, although a particularly low number (more than -10) might happen if the phrases were particularly unclear to you, or if you under-estimated your abilities.

    -- A curve greater than 0 indicates you checked sophisticed phrases more often than simpler ones. This would be counter to a developmental model and might happen if many phrases are badly written or if you have over-estimated your capabilities.

    Your Most-Used Processes
    Based on your response, these are your top three cognitive processes in use:


    Ti : Analyzing; categorizing; evaluating according to principles and whether something fits the framework or model; figuring out the principles on which something works; checking for inconsistencies; clarifying definitions to get more precision.

    Ne : Interpreting situations and relationships; picking up meanings and interconnections; being drawn to change 'what is' for 'what could possibly be'; noticing what is not said and threads of meaning emerging across multiple contexts.

    Ni : Foreseeing implications and likely effects without external data; realizing 'what will be'; conceptualizing new ways of seeing things; envisioning transformations; getting an image of profound meaning or far-reaching symbols.

    Your Developmental Report
    Your pattern of responses indicates a developmental level in each cognitive processes. Since this is experimental, this report may be in error.


    Se,Fe
    You notice this process and enjoy when others use it but only occassionally find yourself engaging in it. You may marvel at others who do it very well. It doesn't appear useful to you personally and can annoy you if others use it too much.

    Te
    You value this process as a helpful aid, even if you do not engage it that often. You trust it contributes to life, particularly when done by others who do the process well. You might recruit others to help you do this process for you.

    Si
    You actively use this process in your daily life as a useful tool or helpful aid. You could live without it but use definitely contributes to the what you do and who you are. You can work with others using this process, usually in a support role.

    Ni,Ne,Fi
    You create value, aid others and get things done everyday using this process. You function well here, know all the ins and outs, strengths and limits of this process. You have made this process your own, something personal and unique to you.

    Ti
    You sustain and grow yourself and those around you long-term through this process. You are at your best, your peak creative and leadership moments when engaged in this process. This is a lead role; it is who you are and what you truly do.

    Accept the past. Live for the present. Look forward to the future.

    I'm beginning to develop my Fe but I'm not exactly sure how to use it...
