I was just wondering? Because basically the "whole idea" of mbti is a vague broad explanation of human behaviour with these things called functions. Like? Terms so broad that they really encompass "everything" people do, in twisted way. And? Vague broad explanations are an NTP specialty. When you see for example an ENFJ engaging in small talk, you can just say "thats Fe", which really doesnt explain anything, but you still sort know what Fe "is capable of", and you kind of get what the situation is about mbti-wise. A really really broad explanation for behaviour, that still sort of does its job? At least i think so? Mbti tells so much but at the same time nothing, which i find exciting.
So. In my mind, mbti is just pure Ti and Ne. You have a complete system with functions and letters and all that (Ti likes systems) and then an absolutely horrible mess of human interaction and motives and crap (Ne likes options) to fit the theory in. Ti-Ne ideas are generally broad descriptions of things that explain ALOT of stuff in a sort of vague way. You have to explain something in a dumb way to encompass all the outcomes. NTP:s dont mind chaos, and human interaction is a lovely example of chaos that doesnt make sense, and if you have a system like mbti, thats sorting crap out with Ti from a Ne mess, pure candy for NTP brain.
In my experience, NTJ:s generally dont like mbti, well they never seem to give it that much credit even if they did. Their minds dont work in the Ti way of "something happens after another thing". The way i use it is like? Occasionally i explain something with it and on other times you cant explain anything with it, which to me is completely okay. My trust in the system varies depending on the situation, but i still trust it, but the NTJ's i know just dont trust it the same way, cos the theory has "holes". To me, if a description is broad enough to cover all sorts of crap, it "covers the holes", and that doesnt really work for boring NTJ:s with no Ne nor ability to trust vague ideas with little evidence.
AND Then? Ive seen alot of INFP threads where they say they dont trust in the theory anymore? INFP's have no Ti, so maybe thats the reason? Then again INFJ's have Ti as a tertiary function? And to me it seems that they sort of "accept" the theory with a lot more ease than INFP's.
So i think mbti is really a Ti-Ne theory. I at least think it works in a way Ti and Ne work when applied to real world.
Not sure if any of that made sense, i might be completely off too.
Your thoughts please.
