    What more do you need?

    Besides, it follows a particular formula. You have your dominant function, and the opposite of that in the opposite attitude is your inferior. One of the two of remaining functions in the opposite attitude of your dominant must be your auxiliary. The remaining function, in the same attitude as your dominant, is your tertiary. It's simple.

    I failed an exam at university now the third time. I scored 79.5 points out of 160 and you needed 80 points to pass *lol*

    I decided to give my frustration over that to the door the results where hanging on and now they are sueing me for demolishing university properiety ( I took a table + a chair out aswell ).

    The funny thing is, there were no half points in the whole exam, only full points. Meaning the ESTJ who gave me a half point, tried at least to get me through, but according to the rules, didnt work...

    If this were a life and death situation, I could prolly understand it. But this exam was about giving a brief history about the development of software over the last 50 years in a 800 page lecture, which was made for mechanical engineers. So no programming was involved, just pure bleak boring history. + It was one out of 35 exams I have to take for a Bachelor degree and its overall point count for the final grade is nearly non-existent.

    Wouldnt have hurt anyone, if they had just said, the whole exam would count as passed with 79.5 points and it would have been fair for everyone -.-

    I am gonna get some gasoline, I am planning on burning a building tonite...

    Anyway, about the functions. Picture an organization. The dominant function is like the big boss sitting in his office. Makes all the major decisions, sets the direction and tone for everyone else, etc.

    The auxiliary function is like the bosses secretary. She handles all requests to see him, influences his first impression of people and things, and of course decides his schedule. She has the second most influence because of her advisory position, in other words.

    The tertiary function is like the systems administrator. He has to go around keeping all the systems and processes running smoothly on a practical level, despite all the limitations imposed on him from above, and the incompetence of the users.

    The inferior function is like the regular peons who do work. They get confused if you tell them to do anything that's not simple, and usually stop working and screw around if you don't keep an eye on them.

    Does that make sense?
    This was bloody brilliant. Kudos to you.

    How bout something that actually answers the question? All you've done is change the question from "How does Udog know?" to "How does Joe Butt know?"

    Besides, it follows a particular formula. You have your dominant function, and the opposite of that in the opposite attitude is your inferior. One of the two of remaining functions in the opposite attitude of your dominant must be your auxiliary. The remaining function, in the same attitude as your dominant, is your tertiary. It's simple.
    Yeah, that's great. But how do you know that?

    It's an accepted tenet of Jungian personality theory.

    Jung explains all of this in his book "Psychological Types." If you read it, he explains exactly how he knows it, and it makes sense to me. It's a very long, complicated read, though.
