    Default Non-standard Fi Ti dominant

    any others? How do you feel about your life?

    If you strongly think you have another non-standard jungian function pair as your dominant functions, how do work it out with the MBTI system?

    (Say you strongly associate with dominant Ne Si, or some other non-standard combination).

    What you make of it?

    I think it's the difference betwen knowing what you want in life (Fi) and wanting you to know in life (Ti).

    After doing the cognitive test at Understanding the Eight Jungian Cognitive Processes / Eight Functions Attitudes I realised that Fi was my third highest function after Ti and Ne. The test gives a rudimentary knowledge of each of the functions.

    I often wonder how much people are removed from their demon function, as it seems just short skip from their dominant function. But I think it depends on exposure to functions perhaps early in life. My mother who is an ISTJ also has very high Fi, and I think I inherited it (environmentally) from her. We also both have a very low Se-Ni axis.
    Why do we always come here?

    I guess we'll never know.

    I'm feeling my top Fi Ti functions make me sensitive about the subjective feelings of everyone as well as wanting to find the truth of everything, even with insensitive means.

    Are you comfortable when you're being sensitive about everybody's subjective feelings? Could it be partly immature Fe?

    Sometimes I feel like that, but found Ti to be a delicious antidote.

    MM, nah. I arrange everything by their logical and informational contents, as well as their emotional content, both of which converge to some standard "norm" of evaluation - so I hold them both quite objective. Sensitive is rarely moody, rather "observant". I do have weakest Fe tho

    Very much so. Mostly observant, and somewhat empathic.

    So, any other strange combos? As I recall it, there's 8 possible primary functions, 2 standard and 5 non-standard secondary functions per primary That's plenty of non-standard combos

    When I originally read Jung, I interpreted his paragraph(s) on auxiliary functions to mean that they had the same attitude as the dominant function.

    Meaning there'd by types with like, Ti dominant and Ni auxiliary (instead of Ne); or Ne dominant and Te auxiliary (instead of Ti). I got the impression that the attitude was switched for practical reasons when the MBTI came along.

    I dunno if that's right. I don't even have Psychological Types anymore. But in some ways I don't like how MBTT leaves open all those holes with functions that aren't in the order, etc.

    Maybe there isn't sixteen types. Maybe it's more like 40320 types.

    It must get a bit fuzzy with the inferior function and the lesser.

    In any case, an empirically established personality system would rule over the current. We've heard you've supposed to be a nutcase and in an insane asylum if you boast two perceiving functions as your primaries, for example. But, I'd be curious to find out

    don't report me to the nearest madhouse just yet

    But ohh, the non-standard development. The environment is a big one. Damn, some might even not be repressed and all twisted for developing in their own way.

    That low Se Ni.. how do you feel it turns out for you (both)?
