# Thread: Proposing the MTI - Moore Type Indicator

1. ## Proposing the MTI - Moore Type Indicator

I'm sick of the confusion surround the MBTI for myself and others, so I've devised my own type indicator, the MTI or Moore Type Indicator.

It's very simple, the functions order is listed and then the attitude cadence, like so:

NTFS:EI = Ne Ti Fe Si

How much easier is that than ENTP? I don't know about you guys but it tells me more quickly than MBTI what the underlying functions are.

Let me know what you guys think.

2. Why are you subtracting EI?

I'm not subtracting them I'm just separating them for clarity.

4. To make it simpler, (and without adding three more characters to the code), you could just use the function-attitudes of the two preferred functions: NeTi. I used to wonder why they didn't just do that. (Now, I realize more the justification of Myers' dichotomy focus, especially J/P).
Or the Jungian notation: ENT (Meaning extraverted iNtuition with Thinking, with the aux. attitude not needed because you automatically know it is opposite the dom.; and the order of the functions replaces J/P/ ETN would be ENTJ).

You're a genius.

We should call it the BMTI. B(???)-Moore Type Indicator.

6. I didn't make those up, so it wouldn't have my name.

7. Well I came up with this garbage, I'm sure someone else already thought of it.

this has the same problem as socionics, TiNe type is closest to NeTi type, but still in your system and socionics, code for NeTi is the closest to code of NiTe.

why not just use NT NF SJ SP?

i really dont understand why you want to come up with these alternative theories and stuff all the time. why is it?

The Keirsey temperaments don't really make a lot of sense. Why not NJ/NP with SJ/SP? Or NT/NF with ST/SF? Is not the dominant function the most important?

10. You have taken that which creates all the confusion about MBTI in the first place and turned it into your 'own' type indicator. Wonderful.
