    you do realize that if you write your own stuff there, you cant put them under the category of jungian cognitive functions(as they then are technically curt.is.gods cognitive functions), you need to write about the functions as they were defined in jungs work and reference to jungs work about the stuff you write about.

    its better that there is nothing about the functions except links rather than false/misleading info about the functions

    Of course it sucks! And it's accurate in its suckiness! We can't even get consensus on anything within this very forum! It's kind of the nature of mbti/cog functions at this juncture. Different people reference different definitions, authorities, theories, etc.

    I don't think it's an issue as long as everything is properly labeled... most of that thread is filed under other names and describes the function descriptions they developed based on Jung's work. But you just can't file under things underneath Jung in the article, as long as it doesn't describe Jung's actual thoughts.

    But I agree. That article needs fixed.
    Or Suckapedia, this age's great disaster?

    Not that im against wikipedia but I wondered if that would fit.

    Fwiw, the wikipedia pages of the specific mbti types contain descriptions of the functions.
    e.g. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/INTP#Cognitive_functions

    I don't plan on us doing that. I plan on us defining the functions as they were defined in Jung's work (and perhaps some other notable works). Isn't that better than nothing and false/misleading info?

    We're not trying to get consensus. We're trying to summarize these different people's definitions/theories.

    It needs to actually describe the functions according to different people, not just say that there is no consensus. It's odd that they're described for each type, but not on the article.
