Hi there. I've been thinking about some different takes on the mbti functions and how it is related to type sparingly for the past few weeks or so. Some people believe people only use their type's four functions, others believe we use all of the functions (the shadow functions too). Reason being everyone displays traits from all functions at some point or another. I've come up with some function combos to help support the four-function-only idea. Judging functions combine with their opposite judging function to make a new synthetic judging function, and likewise for the perceiving functions. Order is important, as it decides the directional focus of the synthetic function (E/I):
Fi+Te = Ti. Fi feels there is usually always something deeper to something than what Te quantifies. So, Fi works with Te to pull apart and analyze the chosen thing, mimicking the critical nature of Ti.
Te+Fi = Fe. Te wishes to organize its environment based on logic and fact, but sometimes this can affect people around the Te user negatively, possibly ruining the process of establishing order. Fi plays the part in keeping people on good terms with the Te user, giving value to the consideration of others, and to connect with them to help achieve a plan set by Te.
Ti+Fe = Fi. Ti is deeply analytical. It believes in critical assessment and avoiding self-contradiction. Fe notices others' defined wants and desires. This leads to Ti creating personal values that aren't purely objective based on what it analyzes in other people. This combination creates synthetic Fi based on systematic but subjective desire to connect with those around the Ti+Fe user by creating their own values and underlying feeling tones.
Fe+Ti = Te. Fe wants to connect and fit in with others, which may require helping them individually. Ti takes note of this, and it also seeks to make sure Fe doesn't contradict itself by catering to the connection of others in a biased manner. This can replicate Te by establishing an order on connecting with other people, creating a fair and balanced criteria when using Fe.
Si+Ne = Ni. Si collects data and compares old situations with similar new ones. Combined with the possibility aspect of Ne, Si can undermine patterns in the past and present and predict future patterns, even if they're a seemingly random vision. This combination can create a synthetic Ni.
Ne+Si = Se. Ne sees connections and possibilities. Combined with Si, attention to detail becomes easier and Ne can become more outwardly involved in the immediate world. This enables Ne to follow physical impulses rather than theoretical ones, mimicking Se.
Ni+Se = Si. Ni has a special vision, but it still needs data to piece this vision together. Se acts as a make-shift physical data collector for Ni, serving as the fuel tank for Ni to draw upon. This process enables the two functions to replicate Si by putting value in collecting and comparing information from the past as well as the present and the future.
Se+Ni = Ne. Se observes physical environment and takes impulsive action. Combined with Ni, Se realizes previously unimagined realizations and follows them on impulsive tangents. This replicates Ne as it looks like the user is making random connections (often based on physical observations).
it's a bit brief and not entirely finished, but I think it makes sense (otherwise I wouldn't post it). What do you think? possibile? bullcrap?
