    Now you're just making my head spin.

    MBTI does that if you get beyond the basics.

    Without Ti or Ni, you can't get very far into the guts of MBTI, I'm afraid.

    It's pretty simple conditional program, really.

    Where J is judgment function and P is perception function,

    For reverse-engineering type from a dominant function:
    Code:
    If J, then:
        if Ji, TYPE = IxJP.
        else if Je, TYPE = ExJJ
    Else if P:
        if Pi, TYPE = IPxJ.
        else if Pe, TYPE = EPxP.
    Where 1, 2, 3, and 4 refer to dominant, auxiliary, tertiary, and inferior functions, and (a) and (b) refer to opposite functions (t/f, s/n),

    For determining remaining functions from a dominant function:

    Code:
    If 1 = J(a/b)(i/e), then:
        4 = J(b/a)(e/i) and
        [2, 3] = [P(a/b)(e/i), P(b/a)(i/e)].
    Else if 1 = P(a/b)(i/e), then:
        4 = P(b/a)(e/i) and
        [2, 3] = [J(a/b)(e/i), J(b/a)(i/e)].
    And so on. It's all very yin-yang.

    So, what does visualizing the "functions" of a hypothetical "type" get for you?

    I mean, other than a pretty diagram.

    The theory is that extraverts always have an extraverted dominant function (vice-versa for introverts); extraverted judgers have dominant judging, while extraverted perceivers have dominant perception (vice-versa for introverts).

    The fourth function is the opposite of the first; the third is the opposite of the second. If the first function is perception, the second will be judging (and vice-versa). If the first function is extraverted, the second will be introverted (and vice-versa).

    As for what the visualization gives you, it's a tool to intuitively clarify the abstract patterns behind the logic.

    Ah yes, this. Ni + Te = Lots of pretty colors to look at so I can understand the rest of the jibberish! No hard logic for me like Aderack posted. I looked at the colors and essentially said 'Ohh hey! I get it! I can tell you the functions of the rest of the types now!' Once I get the pattern memorized to where I can call on it at need that is. I'm still in the rememberization phase... But now it makes SENSE, which is a step farther than I was before.

    Embrace the possibilities.

    Okaay..well, congrats I guess. It still doesn't make sense to me.
