    I'm not the only one who disagrees with MBTI functions, if popularity contests are your preferred method of logic.

    Your preferences aren't conceptually related. I/E is an attitude, so is J/P. S/N, T/F are functions. You can't just lump them all together and call them the same sort of thing. It's invalid.
    Thank you for the psychology lesson, because I didn't know all that already. /sarcasm.

    I/E is already included in 16-type, I didn't introduce it. It affects behavior and personality, so there's no reason to remove it from a system of differentiation.

    So you can't possibly be arguing for the more specific and convoluted conjecture that is MBTI function theory? I agree with you.

    Therefore, if the behaviours associated with Fi and Fe are different, then Fi and Fe are different.
    Feeling applied to a concept and applied to something external can be defined differently, but I choose not to for the sake of sense and simplicity.

    Are you playing Devil's Advocate to get me to clarify myself? Good strat, if so. Otherwise STFU!

    You're also not the only one able to discriminate between bullshit and a plausible theory.

    I am, as it happens.

    "Make everything as simple as possible, but not simpler" ~ most famous INTP of all.

    Are you feeling challenged? Is it your Fi or your Fe, d'ya think?

    No, I'm not, I'm just pondering your motivation. Okay, you're sticking with MBTI functions, congratulations. I'll leave you to it.

    I am not getting this at all. You haven't discredited function theory other than to say it's rubbish - which is less than persuasive. And you haven't provided any reasons to suggest why your approach makes more sense.

    Hey, you leave Mom out of it.
    She's entitled to appreciate greatness when she sees it.
    And let's face it, in this thread, that's gonna be me.

    If you are familiar with MBTI functions, please consider the extraverted and introverted components of a function to be combined into one function, for the purposes of this theory. For example, Ni and Ne are combined into Intuition.

    Introversion and Extroversion are considered to define the types separately from their Primary and Support functions. The Primary function typically occupies the concentration of individuals. The Support function is the most dominant function of either Perceiving or Judging nature, the opposite of the Primary function. The remaining two are considered relatively unimportant, and their use is not specifically defined. The sum of the characteristics defines the type for the purposes of this theory.

    INTP:

    Introverted.
    Primary function: Intuition
    Support function: Thinking

    ENTP:

    Extroverted.
    Primary function: Intuition
    Support function: Thinking

    INTJ:

    Introverted.
    Primary function: Thinking
    Support function: Intuition

    ENTJ:

    Extroverted.
    Primary function: Thinking
    Support function: Intuition

    INFP:

    Introverted.
    Primary function: Intuition
    Support function: Feeling

    ENFP:

    Extroverted.
    Primary function: Intuition
    Support function: Feeling

    INFJ:

    Introverted.
    Primary function: Feeling
    Support function: Intuition

    ENFJ:

    Extroverted.
    Primary function: Feeling
    Support function: Intuition

    ISTP:

    Introverted.
    Primary function: Sensing
    Support function: Thinking

    ESTP:

    Extroverted.
    Primary function: Sensing
    Support function: Thinking

    ISFP:

    Introverted.
    Primary function: Sensing
    Support function: Feeling

    ESFP:

    Extroverted.
    Primary function: Sensing
    Support function: Feeling

    ISTJ:

    Introverted.
    Primary function: Thinking
    Support function: Sensing

    ESTJ:

    Extroverted.
    Primary function: Thinking
    Support function: Sensing

    ISFJ:

    Introverted.
    Primary function: Feeling
    Support function: Sensing

    ESFJ:

    Extroverted.
    Primary function: Feeling
    Support function: Sensing

    Glossary:

    Perceiving function: A function used to gain information.
    Judging function: A function used to assign value.
    Intuition: Acquisition of information other than what can be directly sensed with the five senses. Synonymous with Perception in other contexts.
    Sensing: Acquisition of unmodified information gathered with the five senses.
    Thinking: Logical processing of information.
    Feeling: Emotional processing of information.
    I'm having trouble making sense of this. First, the names are off now. Normally, the P and J signify which function is extroverted. With your system it is opposite--I don't see why keep them at all. It just makes things confusing.

    P and J no longer mean anything now that you've combined Ne and Ni, Se and Si, Te and Ti, and Fe and Fi. Your INTP should be an NT and your INTJ should be a TN. With your system, only 2/4 letters matter in determining the type of the individual. With MBTI, all 4 letters matter....

    Also, you seem to have reduced the system to 8 types instead of 16, so I am more confused now because of the E and the I. Why have E and I at all if, say, an ENTP and INTP have the same dominant and secondary functions?

    The rest of this post comes from my personal experience...

    I think the most telling examples of how MBTI works are people who differ from you by 1 letter. I am an INTP, for instance, so let me look at 2 of my best friends, an ENTP and an ISTP.

    The ENTP thinks in a very similar fasion to me, but he is clearly a people person. He is not afraid to go up to someone and do something crazy or ridiculous, and this is in fact his normal way of communicating about half the time. I would love to be able to do these things, but I have dominant Ti--I am much more inclined to stay back as an observer and analyze what is going on.... but that doesn't mean that sometimes I act goofy and random, as someone with dominant Ne is very prone to do.

    The ISTP is even more similar to me, but we are such good friends because the N/S difference makes for a disparity in our point of view which leads us to something we both love doing--arguing. That is our dominant Ti nature. We love to get to the very bottom of something and put our point of view into a perfect set of words. The ISTP notices details in the environment much more than I do, and I talk about philosophy and big picture ideas much more than he does, but overall we still have the same dominant mode of communication, and thus we get along much better than me and the ENTP do.

    Overall I see distinct boundaries between each of the 8 functions and I can easily see how they fit into the scheme of MBTI/Jung. It's possible that you may be mistyped and therefore see a need to correct the system. I wouldn't rule out ENTP, INTJ, or ENTJ for you. You seem to be a lot more extroverted than most INTPs.
