To spread information which probably isn't even true?
Did it ever occur to you, to question if the MBTI claims were true to begin with?When I describe function orders to people, try to take in this context: "Under the assumption that you fit the INTP mold as you say you do, your dominant function is Ti and your auxiliary is Ne."
It sure as hell was my first thought.
MOLD? Never mind. It's not even worth it.I also never really said that there aren't any people who exist outside of these molds. My belief on this has changed over time--I now consider the molds themselves to be the most effective arrangements of functions in theory, not the only ones that exist in practice.
That book was written early on in his career.There are certainly people who don't fit that order, but they're going to suffer personality imbalances as a result, and most could improve upon their lives by working to improve the auxiliary function that Jungian analysis predicts they should. (Btw, Jung actually DID say that the secondary function in a balanced individual is opposite the dominant "in every respect"--meaning J/P preference as well as direction. It's in Psychological Types and I can find the page number if you want.)
Anyone who has studied Jung for any length of time,
knows damn well that decades later even Jung himself,
had second thoughts about what he wrote in that book.
And that's the tragedy of it all.
No one would let the poor guy live it down.
Even when he wanted people to let it go.
So you cling to that old book if you want.
Just because someone once wrote a theory,
doesn't mean it's remotely true.
Yet you behave exactly as if it is. How can you not see this about yourself?I'm the one always saying that none of this can be tested or empirically proven, remember? The entire discussion of typology is on the presumption that it can't be proven or quantified!
You speak in absolutes! I see it in your posts all the time.
What really pisses me off is how you badger people, about their alleged type.
"You're not INFP, you're INFJ. SEE. SEE."
It's juvenile. God help those NFs you go after.
I knew it was coming, you just had to call me a Te.I know you Te people value external precision and all that, and so you don't tend to release ideas until Ni has had time to thoroughly flesh them out so that can Te can accomplish something meaningful with them, but EP types really don't bother with this. It just comes out of our mouths because we have to discuss it with others in order to learn enough about it to make an internal decision (and Ji can take a long time to make up its mind, hence P flightiness.)
You can't help yourself. Lol.
In theory I agree with your intentions.
In practice, it is not what you are doing.
For chrissake, you derail threads to tell people how "wrong" they are, about their alleged type.
That's not learning. That's bullshit.
