    For the purposes of this poll, consider Dom to mean it is either your first or second function. This is a poll for thinkers only please.
    I tried to explain that I really meant if it is your first or secondary function. Sorry I wasn't more clear.

    According to Do What You Are, these types extravert Thinking as their Dom or Aux:
    ESTJ, ISTJ, ENTJ, INTJ
    So my Aux is Te.
    I don't have a problem at all with any of those types generally speaking,
    though I have had some trouble with ESTJ females.

    According to Do What You Are, these types introvert Thinking as their Dom or Aux:
    ESTP, ISTP, ENTP, INTP
    The only type I have repeated trouble with on this list is INTP males.


    Females in one category, males in another. Isn't that funny. I wonder why.
    I think one reason for our disagreements is because I perceive them as lacking feeling.
    Another reason is that I tend to end up having fights over the meanings of words with them and I hate that. I feel like they refuse to understand the spirit of what I'm saying, and instead they want to pick apart my word choices. I guess I feel like they not only don't understand me, but are choosing to not understand me, so we can have a fight instead.


    I'm not sure if these problems are Te/Ti problems or something else,
    but they're the 2 types I historically have had trouble with.

    I get that ALL the time with xNFJ's, but I get quite the opposite problem with my brother: he focuses on what he thinks is the spirit of what I'm saying, when I've actually taken a lot of trouble to use the precise words that I mean; he gives it an interpretation that's quite different from anything I'm capable of. It seems I also do the same to him... there are some serious communication issues that seem to arise between us fairly often, though we both agree that we get along generally and have similar views on many things, and similar interests too.

    I'm entertaining the thought that the cognitive functions test might be right, and I actually had dominating Ti. If it ain't (which I believe), none of this applies.

    I think that perhaps they might really be unable to understand the spirit of what you're saying in a holistic sense without going through everything linearly. It may be that they're focused on logic and are oblivious to your feelings (if not most feelings), and to the fact that conflict might be painful for you. Many T's that I know can thrive on conflict rather than harmony. It doesn't make much sense to me either, but that seems to be how they function.

    EJ/IP = a split rational function.

    IJ/EP = a united rational function.

    I was thinking those pictures illustrate the difference between S and N. Does having Ti as an auxiliary function make me the second most abstract type (after INTP)?

    You're probably right but I didn't know that until I came here a few months ago. When I'm too entrenched in my Ni, I can't always get in touch with the logic or the reasons for my point of view - but I know one thing for sure - I'M RIGHT!
