    So what I meant is it's a good thread, and good to see people challenging misconceptions.
    I'm glad you think it's a good thread Quin makes me feel more hopeful about it, at first i thought it would fizz out soon as it started but thankfully.

    I really hope this thread will keep it going with challenging misconceptions that happen to occur with mbti....hopefully anyone who is confused
    this will be one of the helpful forums on here to shake the fuzzies out.

    As there are some truly nice threads in this forum that seem to break away from that and aid in clearing the confusion started from other topics/those inspired me to start this.
    What is Feeling?
    Feeling is primarily a process.....that imparts to the content a definite value in the sense of acceptance or rejection. In the same way that thinking organizes the contents of consciousness under concepts, feeling arranges them according to their value. Feeling, like thinking, is a rational function, since values in general are assigned according to the laws of reason...

    You're a bit lagging but i'm glad you understand.
    everyone uses every function about evenly. take NE for example. if there are those who don't use it much, then why are there such massive amounts of people constantly flowing through Wallmart with 20 items or less?

    what is a common theme among types that may not be so obvious especially T women who seem F because of conditioning? being female/ growing up around F's etc.

    Also is there any ITP's on here who grew up around aload of SFJ's lol so kinda took on some of there traits cause of being around them so much?

    what honestly defines a T at the core as well as for F at the core? same for for S versus N/ I versus E etc. But I mostly want to focus on T versus F and S versus N

    Also can someone explain the Ti-Fe relationship of dominant and inferior and how they work together/ how they don't also etc?
    .
    Okay people.

    I guess can understand i could be asking for a lot for someone to put into words about there deepest self at the core.

    but an attempt would be pretty cool to see i'm flexible with whatever comes up and i'm not expecting a revelation just wanting to hear other's input.
    maybe that won't scare people way .

    Oh shit. I'm sorry.

    Hey, I'm for anyone challenging misconceptions.
    But then I'm for anyone daring to challenge anything,
    that others blindly accept to be true.
    So challenge away!

    from wiki...
    not sure what else you need really. that's why i haven't answered.

    Functions: Sensing (S) / iNtuition (N) and Thinking (T) / Feeling (F)

    Jung identified two pairs of psychological functions:

    * The two perceiving functions, sensing and intuition
    * The two judging functions, thinking and feeling

    According to the Myers-Briggs typology model, each person uses one of these four functions more dominantly and proficiently than the other three; however, all four functions are used at different times depending on the circumstances.

    Sensing and Intuition are the information-gathering (perceiving) functions. They describe how new information is understood and interpreted. Individuals who prefer sensing are more likely to trust information that is in the present, tangible and concrete: that is, information that can be understood by the five senses. They tend to distrust hunches that seem to come out of nowhere. They prefer to look for details and facts. For them, the meaning is in the data. On the other hand, those who prefer intuition tend to trust information that is more abstract or theoretical, that can be associated with other information (either remembered or discovered by seeking a wider context or pattern). They may be more interested in future possibilities. They tend to trust those flashes of insight that seem to bubble up from the unconscious mind. The meaning is in how the data relates to the pattern or theory.

    Thinking and feeling are the decision-making (judging) functions. The thinking and feeling functions are both used to make rational decisions, based on the data received from their information-gathering functions (sensing or intuition). Those who prefer thinking tend to decide things from a more detached standpoint, measuring the decision by what seems reasonable, logical, causal, consistent and matching a given set of rules. Those who prefer feeling tend to come to decisions by associating or empathizing with the situation, looking at it 'from the inside' and weighing the situation to achieve, on balance, the greatest harmony, consensus and fit, considering the needs of the people involved.

    As noted already, people who prefer thinking do not necessarily, in the everyday sense, 'think better' than their feeling counterparts; the opposite preference is considered an equally rational way of coming to decisions (and, in any case, the MBTI assessment is a measure of preference, not ability). Similarly, those who prefer feeling do not necessarily have 'better' emotional reactions than their thinking counterparts.
    There can’t be any large-scale revolution until there’s a personal revolution, on an individual level. It’s got to happen inside first.
