    Because I'm a pretty big believer in the MBTI, and because a lot of what ended up in the Myers-Briggs typology had its roots in Jung, and maybe especially because the function-centric MBTI theorists and their internet forum followers are inclined to give Jung's perspective — or at least what they think (or claim to think) was Jung's perspective — a lot of weight, I often find myself talking about what Jung's views were on X, Y or Z, and often in cases where my own views are substantially different.

    I think the Harold Grant functions model, and "type dynamics," would have a lot fewer internet forum followers if more people realized that, besides not having any respectable scientific support (very much unlike the MBTI dichotomies), that functions model is also a long ways from Jung's model — so it can't even claim any credibility on the grounds that, data be damned, Jung was a fooking genius who truly saw through to the depths of the human soul.

    Who knows? Maybe you'll wake up one of these days and stop going on about the "auxiliary function."

    Your great interest in Jung is undoubtedly an example of Ne bent inwards.
