    Default The P and J Muddling

    Well, by now it's gotten to a level of irritation.
    Well, it's been there. But now I'm actually scratching the itch.

    I'm composing a rather lengthy decryption letter to you guys.
    It's kind of dry so far. I'll make it funnish if I can so you'll at least be able to get through it.

    In the mean time, I guess I'll host a Q and A discussion (ask in this thread).

    I think I've got it mostly pinned down, but it might shed some light onto the underlying confusion, and I'll be able to shorten the big post, which is, again, forthcoming.

    I usually just spread them on separate slices... there's other ways?
    My cold, snide, intellectual life is just a veneer, behind which lies the plywood of loneliness.

    What happens when you put the slices together?

    Or do you eat them with the sauces on the... outside...?

    A concern that I have is when people continue to focus on the J/P dichotomy, they are failing to grow in understanding type since at some point you will finally realize that the dichotomies have little to do with type. It's merely a code used by Myers-Briggs to show whether you extravert with a judging/perceiving function and is redundant since once the basic principles are understood, you immediately know which function should be extraverted and at what level.

    Believe me. I know the code.
    You're a pretty observant chap to know all this, and yet you managed to miss the hundreds of posts of mine saying exactly the same thing?

    My plan here is to make the fourth letter into something substantively viable since;
    a) people insist on using it
    b) it's a horrid muddled, confused digit
    c) it's beyond vague... it's just wrong a lot of the time.

    Pair A and either of the other two, and there's good reason to have it hammered the hell out.

    but what would it mean if a person always has an extremely HIGH P score on tests then?

    then why do people have to go and make the whole concept so complex in the thread then... :steam:... there's really no shame in being direct!
