    Why consider them something so vague as a "state of mind", when the conceptualization of them as a means of handling sensory information is much more concrete, parsimonious, and potentially testable? (I was thinking of a few ways of possibly proving that hypothesis, through the use of personality tests and sensory comparison tests, seeing if they correlate in any way)

    Why wouldn't Ti/Te/Fi/Fe be much more indicative of a person's state of mind?

    I think they're all indicative of a state of mind; I think each type is defined by the four functions interoperating and bouncing off each other, and we're just "shifting" between them where and how circumstance and function order dictates. I like exploring how the functions dictate our behaviour, what we perceive and how we make decisions. That's what I mean by "state of mind". perhaps it's just me reading this website far too much, but it's a fascinating way of looking at the system, and far more interesting than treating the functions as just tools in a toolbox.

    And none of this is the least bit scientific, so I'm not interested in what is "testable" or "concrete".

Perceiving functions take in, support, then store the sensory data within the harder memory functions.

    Judging Function = CPU/OS/Application Logic

The downside is that these "big pictures" that are taken in require a lot of storage space within the long-term memory banks. As such, because of the constant need to place new information within these banks, the big matrices of information that the judging function deems unnecessary constantly must be disposed of (forgotten).

The benefit of this is that the data can be handled and stored much more efficiently, since rather than many sets of "big pictures" that need to be Judged, you have these individual bits of data, and the judging process only needs to clean up the redundant parts. The downside is that it recollects and interprets through constant fitting of those stored data points together, and this process can lead to some severe distortion.

When starved of this data, the judging function will attempt to compensate by using whatever sensory data is within, that is, previously processed by the judging data. For example:
    I like the above, because honestly, Ne and Ni are pretty difficult for me to contemplate on, considering (1) I'm an ESTP, and (2) I've not read into function definitions with great detail as of yet...

    So, the Judging function is the powerhouse that bridges the gap between N and S... Nice. I like it!

Since the big sets of sensory data are too large and unwieldy to handle for more than a short period of time by the Ji function (the "gut instinct" aspect), it then focuses in on smaller portions of the set, trying to come to either Fi or Ti-based conclusions about them ("If Coach would have put me in in '83, everything would have been different"). The problem is that the only dissembled data is within that one sphere, and that these conclusions do not factor in other, more distantly related variables.

When dealing with incompatible data, the Je will have no internal basis for comparison, and will thus have to compensate externally. So:
    Brilliant.

    Since all humans have both of these functions to some capcity, depending on their type, there is alot of variation in the amount of S/N we use to fill in the gaps of what we do not know. Right?

    ATTEMPTED REDUCTIONIST SIMPLIFICATIONS:
    Strong S -> I've got the facts, and will make my guess from there...BUT the less facts/actual experience I have, the less comfortable with guessing I am...

    Strong N -> I've got limited facts, but I'm OK with figuring out every which way to Sunday this situation can go based on what I know if I am given time to do so, BUT without time to do so I'm less comfortable with guessing...

    Quote Originally Posted by onemoretime View Post

If a situation is entirely unprecedented, and there is no means of comparison, the Je will do whatever it can to bring that situation back to something it can work with internally, also known as tert/inf "Ne".
    AND...

When Je puts them back together, unusual and previously unnoticed patterns develop, which seem de novo since they are externally consistent (either on Te or Fe terms), but there was no means of knowing this before the data was broken apart and reassembled subconsciously. When the data is understood too discretely to further analyze, Je will then act on the outside world in an attempt to come up with more information that can be further processed, that is, tert/inf "Se".
    Both damn good and tangible explainations of Ne and Ni.

    Honestly, this is the first post that I have read that has explained the inter-relation of functions in a tangible manner.

    The early examples of Ne vs. Ni were both easy to grasp, but I them both to be somewhat representative of "paranoia."

    My wife is an INFJ, and my big brother is an INTJ, and neither have ever seemed paranoid to me. Both are more like "Bobcats." They sit there taking in the scenery and are putting it all together in ways that I am oblivious to, because I'm the one waving my arms around trying to interact with the people, things, and ideas flying around the room in real time and exerting my will on them. Then when I get stuck, and the room becomes silent one of them will pipe up "But if you did A and C, instead of A and B, then everything works out for both of you. Right?" And everything marches along nicely from there.

    Further proof that we all need to develop our inferior functions, and that we all are better off working together, than in isolation.

    See, that's the problematic disconnect for me - if we talk about something "dictating" behavior, then we're making a fundamentally scientific claim: that these represent something material that's going on which has a causative effect on how humans interact with their world. What could be more interesting than figuring out how people actually tick? If we genuinely understood what was going on up there, instead of coming up with mystico-theoretical conceptualizations that only vaguely correspond with the material reality of how humans process the stimuli that compose our life, wouldn't we then have the opportunity to help people in profound, groundbreaking ways?

    Mere tools in a toolbox are what humanity used to change the world. It isn't scientific so far, that's true... but that doesn't mean it isn't a place to start from, either.

    No, because that's not what I care about.

    There's nothing mystical about what I'm talking about, just anecdotal. People think differently, and these functions are a wonderful way of illustrating and exploring what people focus on and how they rationalize things. These traits can be observed in others, we just tend to dismiss how other people perceive and rationalize because it differs from how we perceive and rationalize. So in a sense, I am actually exploring how people "tick", but in an anecdotal rather than empirical sense.

    If someone can validate these ideas in a controlled science lab, great! But I recognise these behavioural traits not only in myself but in others as well, and that's really all the justification I need to explore them and consider them valid.

    If you dont see this as a way to change the future then you dont see it as a causitive effect, but something that is just parallel to reality.

    So if your not in MBTI to understand interactions then what are you here to understand? Life is nothing more then interactions. Objects interacting with objects and people interacting with people. There are no objects here, just people.

    Then it's just better to talk about fictional archetypes, then.

    People are objects. Just a particularly interesting type of object, that's all
