Jung also referred to type only when certain preferences become habitual.
Lenore Thomson pointed out that contrary to what MBTI claims,
Jung did not say people are born with a preference for certain functions.
Therefore, we are not necessarily born a type.
And if Jung viewed type preference as a wound in the psyche,
that's not exactly a glowing testimonial for it, now is it?
Here we have another common misconception that has been allowed to run wild:
those who are undecided about a type "just aren't differentiated enough!"
How often have you read that verbal pollution?
Dare I say, if Jung were here he'd claim the less differentiated we are,
the closer we are to being whole.
I personally dislike the word: shadow.
It conjures up an immediate negative connotation.
It makes no sense to me to suggest our unconscious is inherently "bad."
Or that some monster lurks within us all.
In my opinion, our most fertile gifts and talents began in the womb of our unconscious.
Every person is comprised of both conscious and unconscious parts.
When we pull a coin from our pocket, we don't think:
"Damn that tails side is evil."
No side is evil.
It only becomes evil, if we make it so.
I think I'm pretty much ready to just abandon Ti for Ni.
I've grown very tired of Ti's inflexible nonsense.
Can I just be Ne-Ni?
If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?
