    Yep. It's probably impossible to avoid redefining functions to fit types, if you insist on making them fit. And that explains why people can come up with two or more separate function orders for the same type, which all make about the same sense.

    Fair enough.

    And that's the problem with starting with a predefined structure.

    I don't think personality will be nearly as elegant as Beebe's "eight-function" theory tries to make it, especially when trying to shoehorn functions into particular categories. I think I did it more as an exercise of his theory than because it completely made sense, and to see if it provided any useful insight on particular patterns of behavior that might crop up within a generalized type...

To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft
