    I think the cognitive functions are preferences, and there's some room for variation, some being stronger in one person or another. But MBTI codes are abstractions, and it doesn't matter how much Ne vs Ti a person uses, they're still an ENTP. It doesn't matter that I have maybe a stronger Te than many other INTJs, I'm still an INTJ.
    You lose.

    Interesting test. I got...

    Actualized type: ESTP
    (who you are)
    Extroverted (E) 70.83% Introverted (I) 29.17%
    Sensing (S) 62.5% Intuitive (N) 37.5%
    Thinking (T) 69.57% Feeling (F) 30.43%
    Perceiving (P) 60% Judging (J) 40%

    ESTP - "Promotor". Action! When present, things begin to happen. Fiercely competitive. Entrepreneur. Often uses shock effect to get attention. Negotiator par excellence. 4.3% of total population.
    *The current algorithm breaks the tie randomly so refresh the page to see alternate results

    Preferred type: ESTP
    (who you prefer to be)
    Extroverted (E) 68.97% Introverted (I) 31.03%
    Sensing (S) 62.5% Intuitive (N) 37.5%
    Thinking (T) 58.33% Feeling (F) 41.67%
    Perceiving (P) 56.76% Judging (J) 43.24%

    What got me thinking about it was my attraction to being typed istp 8w9 sp/sx. To me that sounded like a preferable way to be. Not preferable in that I want to be it, preferable in that in sounds like a preference.

    Ok, so you got no idea what ego is?

    What? You were saying that what I consciously want is what my ego wants. I know what consciously interests me. What's your point?

    I tried to figure out what it had to do with ego that you said and only thing i could come up with was some stuff thats not actually about ego. Soo i figured out that you dont have much understanding about what ego is and asked if thats true incase you are interested to learn about the subject

    I just came from the other angle. I know what I like, if that reflects my ego then I can see that. I don't want a whole lot of stuff I can't see with my conscious mind. But if you reckon it might be interesting tell me about it.

    In our minds we have the underlying template sitting dormant for every type-but we have strengthened the...mind-map... for the type that we are. Transitioning from one type to another may be possible-but certain types may be easier to get to, dependent upon what type you are. Once there, there is no way you can mistake it for anything but a drastic shift.

    Once there....you may find you have access to the new pattern of cognitive thought, but you lack the data that type would have accumulated over a liftime of usage. Thus even with the proper new type mind-map, you lack the historical Pi data to fully utilize the new mind-map as effectively as a native born person of that type.

    Additionally-given the strength of the former type mind-map, there is a constant struggle to maintain the new mind-map...it requires an almost meditative focus to stay "in type"-a strange balancing of mind, before the former native mind-map snaps back into place.

    Most interestingly-the two mind-maps find each others judgments to be totally ridiculous and even baffling. Additionally, the two different mind-maps create a host of phisiological changes in stress, anxiety, perception, even to the point of minor physical ailments being supressed. Time delta between the mind-map changes was about 30 minutes of slow change to move and upwards of miutes to days to revert.

    Both mind maps are still the same person-there is never a feeling os splitting-always there is a core self, but the mindmaps can drastically shift perception and judgement of the same event and reactivity to the same event. Emotional pain was also perceived very differently.

    these have been my experiences, of course. I'd be interested in hearing from others.
