I just stumbled over an intresting claim by author, philosopher and hobby-psychologist Dr. Joseph Murphy:
Murphy was a big fan of autosuggestion and said that basically all of our life we are the pawns to our subconciousness.Whatever the subconscious accepts as true, it directs you to act as if it is true
Given his theory as a starter, what do you think is the most objective starting point for mbti analysis ? Under the premisse that all humans would be objective and able to analyze factually without biases of any sort.
You could say the starting point could be function theory, but you can argue as well that humans are the sum of their functions and by focussing too much onto single functions you could destroy the whole picture. Then again you can say that obviously the picture as a whole is formed thru functions, like there is a huge difference between F and T and then you can ask how far can you set a person apart to analyse the functions and not destroying the big picture that is the person ?
Another question is what creates our initial fascination with mbti ? it does only tell us things we already now, doesnt it; cause it talks about us ? So is it our wish maybe that others can see how we are and mbti gives us an instrument to easily achieve that ? But how far is mbti allowed to go ? Mbti says, because entps are so enthusiastic they are bad money savers. Is that ok or does it cross a line already with such an accuse ?
What are your thoughts, the question basically is: where can mbti start to be a meaningful instrument and where must it end ? What cant be understood by mbti and what is the future of mbti ? Are the types constant for like forever ?
