    I wonder if the auxiliary function is actually as important for determining personality as the four letter/three letter(socionics) codes seem to indicate. As I understand it, Jung placed a lot of importance on the inferior function, and said very little about the auxiliary and secondary. The inferior function recognizes things that are unconscious. It describes what your struggle is, what your internal conflicts are. The inferior functions will "throw off" your primary. Inferior functions make people complex instead of just tidy archetypes. They seem to play a large role in the personality.
    aux is expressed in MBTI type code. the middle two letters are the dom/aux functions, I/E and J/P are just attitudes of those functions and also are traits on their own. also the MBTI letters are called preference pairs, as the N over S is just a preference, so is T over F and so on. i mean INTP has ESFJ inside, but its just not preferred.

    what jung did place quite bit of importance is the concept of differentiation and individuation(which goes quite much further than just typology). there is actually really much to be understood about aux and tert(also typology in general) and how they function from jungs work, its just that jung didnt directly write about them much, but they follow the same general concept of how the mind works in jungian perspective. or if you read what little jung said about aux and tert, then read what he wrote about other stuff than typology, you will be able to connect many things to aux/tert aswell.


    As for the tertiary, if the "loop theory" is correct, than loops reflect the natural preferences and tendencies of a person. The third function is supposed to be easier to use then second function, if less likely to be used well, according to the "loop theory". Thus, it will be more common for an INTP to use Si, for instance, than to use Ne. Ne often requires conscious effort, while Si is more automatic. It seems odd, then, that the four letter/three letter codes include a description of a primary function and an auxiliary function, instead of a tertiary and inferior function.
    i dont think that tert is easier to use than aux. the whole loop thing is an abnormal state where the opposite attitude of introversion/extraversion gets repressed(I types repress E obviously).

    Thanks for actually explaining why I'm wrong. If Jung never referred to judging types, only rational types, I may have conflated the two because, from my understanding, they appeared to be referring to the same thing. (Except, MBTI only cares about the extraverted function.)

    Socionics does appear to be sticking closer to Jung's definition. A judging type in socionics is a type that uses a judging (or rational) function as a primary function. This includes MBTI INTPs and ENTJs. It may be different terminology, but as far I can tell, it seems to be referring to the s

    Really? You don't appear to have read your OP, either.

    So contrary to JCF stereotypes about dominant and auxiliary functions:

    Ni and Si people can have spontaneous and fun-loving personalities.
    Fi and Ti people can have controlling and work-oriented personalities.
    Fe and Te people can have spontaneous and fun-loving personalities.
    Ne and Se people can have controlling and work-oriented personalities.
    If you're not talking about stereotypes, and this thread has nothing to do with stereotypes, why do you mention them by name in your OP?

    Don't accuse me of not paying attention simply because I take issue with your OP and then introduce original ideas into the discussion. Odd, coming from someone who claims to be "not opposed to change."

    If the point of this thread was simply a pissing match with Eric, take it to PMs and don't inflict it on the rest of us.

    MBTI is more about what people are like, while jung focuses more about whats going on in the persons mind and how it can be used for self knowledge and aid for psychotherapy. in MBTI J is a trait, meaning that it describes what someone is like(more exactly his attitude to life, whether he likes is organized or more spontaneous), it just happens to be that people who have their first rational function extraverted are more organized and need disclosure than those with introverted rational function.

    "Jung described the psychological functions of thinking and feeling as rational because they are decisively influenced by reflection." jung lexicon

    "Both intuition and sensation are functions that find fulfilment in the absolute perception of the flux of events. Hence, by their very nature, they will react to every possible occurrence and be attuned to the absolutely contingent, and must therefore lack all rational direction. For this reason I call them irrational functions, as opposed to thinking and feeling, which find fulfilment only when they are in complete harmony with the laws of reason." -psychological types

    basically when you perceive something, its irrational because there is no reflection process going on, if you see a ball, you just see it, you dont stop and think whether its a ball or not before you perceive a ball.

    jungs idea of rational type has to do with this sort of stuff, its that people with dominant rational function do more of this reflection and do it more naturally according to which ever rational function is dominant.

    @Eric B's posts are for the most part incomprehensibly dense. His method is to take a theory that nobody else has heard of and compress it into a single paragraph, maybe two, and expect people to understand it. I think he has some interesting observations to make, as far as I can tell. It's just largely unapproachable.

    Stereotypes aren't my main point, it is the theory behind them I'm tackling here. But if we talk purely about stereotypes, everybody mistakes that for some kind of typism (like racism, only about types). Maybe not you, but a lot of people do.

    According to a Google search, a stereotype is "a widely held but fixed and oversimplified image or idea of a particular type of person or thing." Does typology oversimplify human nature and personality? By leaps and bounds. And I've seen these stereotypes used against people on these forums. For example, see my sig: "over-generalizing, socially retarded fool." Over-generalizing speaks to "intuitive" and "socially retarded" speaks to introversion. Then follow the link in my sig and see who said it to me.

    Typology is stereotyping condensed into a theory. Derogatory stereotyping is what happens when anybody attempts to engage in any civilized discussion with the person who called me an over-generalizing, socially retarded fool.

    The point of my OP, however, was to point to a theoretical weakness in the structure of JCF, not to deal in stereotypes per se.

    JCF stands for Jungian Cognitive Functions (as you know), and the theory relates both to Jung's original theory as well as to developments in the theory made by others.

    The MBTI is a personality survey created by Isabel Briggs Myers and her mother, Katherine Cook Briggs. It is a conglomeration of Jung's psychological types and Myers-Briggs' own ideas about personality types.

    I'm not usually one to make rigid demands, but time and time again on this forum I am greeted primarily by thread drift from those who have no interest in reading the OP much less understand it, and who only care to parade forth their own views by parasitizing mine.

    I didn't use the phrase "stubborn anal-retentive people"; and I don't know that Jung actually referred to judging types.

    But if I were to use @Eric B's standard of what should constitute a decent OP, I should have listed about 2 dozen characteristics for both perceivers and judgers, thus rendering my OP completely unreadable.

    My thinking has nothing to do with stereotypes, but what is a judger or perceiver in theory.
    I don't understand why you don't understand what I wrote. You're the one who mentioned behavioral traits like "fun-loving", and I simply acknowledged that no, those are not necessarily tied to J/P as the stereotypes assume, but can come from other factors. Then, I directly addressed the different definitions of "judgment" or "perceiving" types.
    I didn't know that would be considering "parasitizing" your ideas. And what's with going after what you consider "my standard" of writing an OP? What does that have to do with anything?
    Just because the thread might not have gone the way you wanted (apparently), it's not my fault. Several others had more critical comments and didn't answer your question. This is generally the way threads go, here.

    Well, I tried not condensing it, and then, it was "tldr" (And still just as "dense" and "unapproachable"). I translate it into stuff people have heard of (like Interaction styles), which should make it easier to understand in type terms, and if it still isn't, then I hope condensing it will at least familiarize it, so eventually, more people may get it.
    Sorry, but I don't know how else to convey the info, and I do believe it answers a lot of these questions people have. (Like others have basically fused Enneagram onto type, or they weave back and forth between MBTI and Socionics).

    Puer is an archetype, which is an imaginal feature of the collective unconscious. When personalized, the archetype becomes a complex. But it can be personalized in different ways. So yes, your description (Where the whole person fits the archetype) is one way, and Beebe's observation (where it's a complex everyone has, which connects with the tertiary) is another way.

    Someone here asked me if I have a virus - like a cold virus, not a computer virus - and yes I have one, several million I'm sure. And I'm somewhat doped up but it's nothing really powerful. (If I took the stronger meds I would be unbearable.) And I have a really loud and annoying ringing in my right ear, and a lesser ringing in my left ear, which are very distracting. These sounds get louder when I'm on these meds.

    What I mean by "parasitizing" is ignoring the OP's thesis and then using some idea in it to cause thread drift. Yes this almost always happens. But it shouldn't be happening, on average, before the fifth page or so of the thread. And certainly not on the first page. After that first page, it was all downhill.

    My OP didn't concern all the various notions of what a P or J person is like, or how those characteristics could be caused by something else. I'm not talking about causes anyway. Theories don't rely on causes, they are just logical constructs.

    The point of the OP is to take JCF to task. I think it did so very effectively, and nobody has really agreed or disagreed with it. And when I asked someone what she agreed with about it, I got no response (because she didn't read it).
