    That's interesting bluemonday. I have a theory that a subset of people who are balanced on the left brain/right brain can use both the introverted and extroverted parts of their dominant functions at will. Their preference isn't as hard wired as someone who is right brain or left brain dominant.

    Btw, bluemonday, it's difficult to tell where a quote begins and ends if you don't close the quotation marks. Maybe you should just use the tags.
    I don't wanna!

    What are you on about? I did use quotation marks - look again.

    I don't understand the
    PET clearly shows where brain activity is concentrated.

    Really though, I wanted to define my notions more clearly than before. That was my motivation. If there's anything this would be good for it's cleaning up all the useless banter on complex function order. Keep It Simple, Stupid, as they say.
    ahh ok sounds good to me. a noble cause. though personally i find that functions theory/notation is very easy to understand once you understand what each function does. so could you type out a little profile for your simplified version of the functions, for each of your individual "psuedo-functions"?

    I was thinking about adding clearer definitions of S,N,T,&F. Not my strength, long descriptions...I'll Keep it Simple and edit the OP.

    I'm skeptical of the intent and procedure, to be honest. I'm not saying "Didn't happen," but I don't trust it yet. How on Earth would they measure someone's Introverted Intuition?

    If what bluemonday & Lenore Thompson said is true, I must fall into this category being as I see no difference between E and I in functions themselves.

    my point with definitions is that if you can bring something new to the table in your definitions then you could very well have something significant if not then functions are a perfectly fluid and useful system.

    And myyyy point is that by simplifying something and removing potential errors, I am making it more useful.

    I've added a very simple glossary to the OP.

    Same way the cognitive functions tests measure it, I suppose.
    I'll try to find out more about the underlying basic research - I think it was related to sports performance.

    Funny you should say that:

    You are quite well-developed, for an INTP.
