    Default The Eight Functions and Fence-Building

    The Eight Functions and Fence-Building

    Ne - I want to design the fence.

    Ni - Why do they want to do this and what is the deal with fences anyway? Is this necessary?

    Se - I want to decorate the fence and make sure that it looks stylish and appealing

    Si - I’ll take care of looking at the instructions and making sure that we follow the established guidelines.

    Te - Is doing this cost effective? Will it be useful?

    Ti - I want to analyze the structure and placement of the fence.

    Fe - How will it affect the neighborhood, and what will the neighbors think?

    Fi - I want it to be my own special fence that I can share with others over time

    I like this one a lot. Very simple.

    We should all pitch in and make one big thread with examples like this.

    I love things like this. They describe each function concisely using a real life situation to do so. It helps newcomers to understand the basics of each function so that they're more easily identifiable.

    Asking the Myers-Briggs type if the water is half-full or half-empty by Unknown - Source

    ENFJ -- There's more than enough for friends to share.

    ENFP -- Whooeee! Water fight!

    INFP -- But look! A crystalline vessel, filled with shimmering, life-giving nectar!

    INFJ -- Senator Hophnagle used the rest of it for his mud pie project.

    ENTJ -- A "full" glass of water, please.

    INTJ -- Yes, that glass will be the flivvium container.

    ENTP -- Voila! .157 liters hydrogen hydroxide, prepared by micro gnomes ...

    INTP -- Well, it seems just a little more than half full--assuming that it is water...

    ESTJ -- Hey! Whose job was it to fill up this glass?

    ESFJ -- I can't believe someone would leave this dirty glass out here! Clean up this mess right now!

    ISTJ -- It's half empty now, and it wouldn't surprise me if it dried up completely.

    ISFJ -- I bet _________ would like to have some water right now ...

    ESTP -- You call that a glass of water? Why, back where I come from, ...

    ISTP -- So? It's water. Big deal!

    ESFP -- There's a glass of water--you know, it's healthy to drink a lot of water, why, I remember when I was growing up that
    we...

    ISFP -- (Holds up glass to the light, tilts it from side to side, tastes it, wiggles finger in it, grins slightly, moves on.)

    Probable Criticisms of a political speech (e.g., State of the Union)

    Fe = His plans don't really address the needs of normal people and his plans are a real snub to the people supporting him.

    Fi = Does he really believe any of these things, or are they mere political convenience? What a slug.

    Te = Not practical. Not realistic. Non-implementable. Empty-headed dreamer.

    Ti = His ideas made no sense and his plans just did not follow, where's the consistency? (Dimwit.)

    Ne = Even if we do it the way he says, there are a lot of things that could happen, and who knows what might change in the meanwhile?

    Ni = There are a lot of OTHER ways to view this problem that I'd wish he'd consider.

    Se = omg, so boring...! [changes channel] or "What speech? I was playing XBOX."

    Si = *grimly* So much for "traditional" values, he's finally showing his true colors.

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. 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

    It's kinda cool that the combinations of the senses make sense too, sort of.

    Like Ti-Se-Ni-Fi

    -he's not talking sense --> so this is boring --> and where are the other views? --> he's not considering the people's perspective in this

    and so on.

    Very interesting.
    Once again, I identify with the Ne, Ni, and Te descriptions.

    (I also completely identify with the site's sample description of Ni.)

    Here, I tend to identify with the ISTP example. And actually, that does seem to be a viewpoint that a nihilistic Ni type would have.

    And the ESTP and ESFP sound a lot more like ESTJ and ESFJ, respectively.

    This one's my favorite and probably the most accurate, I think.

    Illusions of the Unhealthy XXXX
    by Doug Bates - Source

    ESTP: "I'm a stud and the world revolves around me"
    ISTP: "I can make anything work"
    ESFP: "I am the most glamorous"
    ISFP: "Nobody has better taste than I do"

    ESTJ: "I am in control"
    ISTJ: "I do everything right"
    ESFJ: "Everyone likes me and wants to be like me"
    ISFJ: "Nobody can get along without me"

    ENTJ: "I am all-powerful"
    INTJ: "I am all-knowing"
    ENTP: "I can come up with a solution for anything"
    INTP: "I'm brilliant and you'd better bow to my genius"

    ENFJ: "I can teach anyone anything"
    INFJ: "I have the best intentions"
    ENFP: "I have the most enthusiasm"
    INFP: "I have the most sensitive conscience"
