    Well, the way I figured it out is this:

    Sensing and Intuition are perceiving functions. Thinking and Feeling are Judging functions. The extraverted cognitive processes out of the dominant/auxiliary processes will be the preferred lifestyle.

    For example, an INFJ has a judging preference. That means their judging function will be extraverted. So, they have Extraverted Feeling as either their dominant or auxiliary. Since the dominant/auxiliary have to balance each other, the INFJ will introvert the opposite of their extraverted function, so they have Introverted iNtuition.

    An Introvert's dominant process will be introverted and an extravert's dominant will be extraverted. So, the INFJ has Ni Fe as dominant/auxiliary. In the case of an extravert, say an ENFP, the ENFP will extravert their perceiving function as dominant, so Ne. Then their auxiliary will be the opposite, Fi.

    Here are more examples:

    IP:
    Introverted Judging, Extraverted Perceiving

    IJ:
    Introverted Perceiving, Extraverted Judging

    EJ:
    Extraverted Judging, Introverted Perceiving

    EP:
    Extraverted Perceiving, Introverted Judging

    IP's and EJ's share a judging dominant. IJ's and EP's share a perceiving dominant. However, their preferred lifestyle, a Judging or Perceiving function will always be extraverted, so that's what we see from the outside.

    Sure Xander, you can split them anyway you want. *hands you a knife*

    Exactly what Raz says

    dominant extroverted judgers (EJ)
    dominant introverted judgers (IP)
    dominant extroverted perceivers (EP)
    dominant introverted perceivers (IJ)

    Dominant perceivers enjoy exploring ideas... but the IJs tend to keep in inside our minds. Clean desk, cluttered mind analogy. I wish that's true in reality.

For example, an INFJ's dominant function is a perceiving or irrational function (Ni), as is the ENFP's (Ne). However, the INFJs primary extraverted function is feeling, which is a judging or rational function, hence the j. And the P in ENFP comes since it's primary funtion (intuition) is extraverted.

    Did I completely misunderstand your question? If so could you explain a little?
    Possibly. I'm thinking my thoughts got flipped. J and P just apply to extraversion. They aren't really anything themselves. They merely represent the larger pattern, hence I'm on a fast road to a brick wall...

    Never mind...


    See I made the mistake of treating them as aspects of a personality instead of just notations on the pattern of the aspects themselves.

    Thanks for trying though.

    Oh don't talk to me about IxxJs keeping it all in... could murder a couple of them for that alone!!

    Yes, this is what really interests me. Sounds like the real question is: "Why should we believe this is really how it works?" (This is something Jack Flak examined with his system, if I understand what he was saying.)




    Maybe thinking about it this way would help us:

    Te, Se, Fe, Ne as interactions (between the person and someone/something else), and since Extroverts tend to interact, these functions tend to dominate.

    Ti, Si, Fi, Ni as kept within our minds (not interactions), and since Introverts tend away from interaction, these functions tend to dominate. Also, for Introverts the "Xe" functions tend not to dominate, because of the tendency away from interaction.

    (repetitive)

    So when typing Extroverts, we could look at how they interact.

    But when typing Introverts, we can't look at that, because that's not the focus of their world. We could look at how they mull things over in their mind.

    This made me laugh because I didn't get it and it souded like one of those mathemathical functions that is too complicated for my poor old Ti.

    You have a marvellous way of making brain refuse sound like productive matter

    It was partially a challenge to the assumption. It still strikes me as odd that they note extraverted behaviour with a specific letter but then I guess that is what is transmitted to others.

    You hear of a mobius strip? Well that's what it was except that on the return journey I gunned down my original thinking with a .50 cal

    Your avatar seems to fit an INTP well.

    Who me?

    I doubt the guy is an INTP but yeah I picked it cause it seems to fit well.

    Thanks.
