Others have said this as well, and at first, I thought they were just another person's take on things, and had to sort through on my own to figure which were best. After trying on different expressions of the concepts, and then even having a long discussion with her, I find hers are best.
I don't agree with everything she says, as she does not accept the common temperament-based theories as we know the, and though she discusses Beebe's model, she doesn't totally agree with that either. But I'm not giving those up for anyone.
The ship theory was an attempt to create an eight function model before Beebe (and then Berens and the others) became popular. It does seem to have some sort of practical validity, when you see a lot of people's inferiors and sometimes even tertiary coming up weakest in Nardi's test, and people tend to expect the relative strengths to match Beebe's order (and then #8 and possibly 7 also end up coming out strong), and then wonder what their type really is (or whether they fit type at all).
I still don't quite understand what you have against her. I forgot who you prefer. You mentioned it once, but it's easy to forget when you just knock something else, and don't provide a better answer.
