But the 'P' also tells us that the INFP is typically an individual who 'remains open', and is not interested in seeking 'closure' (as is the J). The question to ask here is, 'Is it legitimate to make all introverted feeling types with auxiliary iNtuition BY DEFINITION non-closure-seeking (P) types?' Cannot an introverted feeling type with auxiliary iNtuition not be a closure-seeking J? If so, how would we go about 'writing' the name of such a type? It cannot be done using the current MBTI nomenclature!"
    Yup right this is a flawed tenet in MBTI.

    So how do we get 32 types, is it FiNe-P, FiNe-J instead of generic INFP? I can see 32 then, lol, not a bad idea hm.

    I would be TiSe-J myself. And then I could actually have a type in MBTI...

    You could use that nomenclature, but Fudjack went with inF and iNf.

    I have found someone on Facebook who identifies as an Fi-dominant with a preference for Judging. She identifies as a type 4.

    That wasn't correct. He used that nomenclature at the middle point of his article. But at the end he went with inFj and iNfj. The inFj type doesn't exist in traditional MBTI because of its assumption, made in theory, that the function order determines the P or J at the end. It's the Fi-dominant closure-seeking J.

    It's important then to take a functions test to determine the dominant function, but there has to be another test to determine P versus J.

    I think the first thing one has to realize is that functions are definitions, not independent things in and of themselves. Given that, there has to be a generally agreed-upon definition to use for each function if anyone ever wants to convince someone of a truth regarding that function. Jung, being the guy that came up with them in the first place, seems like a good source.

    This isn't about functions, it's about J and P as independent variables in the type nomenclature.

    The first known use was in 1989 by Richard Sexton in the alt.flame newsgroup.
