    I was considering your question earlier, beat. Wondering if it would be easier if I could be an XXXX - for e.g. it'd mean extreme flexibility - ability to deal with any situation, via use of any/all of the 8 functions, in any combination. Such an individual would be rare. (Jesus? )

    But I'm not certain how a person with XXXX would function in reality without self-immolating at some stage. Plausibility check as Athenian mentioned: How'd you firstly deal with multiple inputs which you weigh to the same degree, and how'd you come to a decision if your judgements are going to be equally weighted in 4 directions? Inaction and merely absorbing in 4 ways? Inability to act/to choose is a preference in that case, isn't it? And extreme flexibility is a choice of Ps too for e.g. So it'd negate an X straight away. *ponders*

    As we grow/mature, we'd tend to some traits, and that's what the dichotomies stand for merely, preferences. Perhaps over time, we get clearer, so someone younger could have more Xes?

    Theoretically, the possibility is there, 50% as wildcat's pointed out.

    JiveATurkey, I think your ball is statistical.

    Edit: hey, wildcat, I was thinking of it, the chance could also be 33.33%? (derailment alert)

    To explain my reasoning,

    Let's start with E/I: If you're either or the other, or X, it means your chance is 33.33% of being E or I or X. I think you were coming from the angle that a person would be E/I (one outcome) or X (second outcome), i.e. 50%?

    Now whether you're E/I/X does not affect whether you'd be N/S/X, T/F/X or P/J/X. I think the term is independent events.

    It means overall chance of being XXXX is 33.33%, if you take X as a discrete possible outcome of the MBTI, or 50% if you're taking it from wildcat's angle of E/I as one outcome, and X as another.

    Actually the more healthy you are, the more Xs you should receive, which is why I laugh when I see someone bragging that they are 100% of any dichotomy. Don't you know you are striving for imbalance when you do this?

    Me and my X are very happy to hear this!
    Relationships have normal ebbs and flows. They do not automatically get better and better when the participants learn more and more about each other. Instead, the participants have to work through the tensions of the relationship (the dialectic) while they learn and group themselves and a parties in a relationships. At times the relationships is very open and sharing. Other time, one or both parties to the relationship need their space, or have other concerns, and the relationship is less open. The theory posits that these cycles occur throughout the life of the relationship as the persons try to balance their needs for privacy and open relationship.

    I would think it would be some difficult mathematical equation to figure out because you have to take into consideration the natural tendency to differentiate one way or another in each of the 4 dichotomies. It's probably equally difficult or even more difficult than being 100% in all of the four dichotomies.

    Sound reasoning.
