I'm just curious. Are there any other MBTI enthusiasts out there who think that the cognitive functions are malarkey? I reject them for several reasons
1) Easily projected onto yourself and others
2) No one can seem to agree on their definitions of them (I mean, unless you want to accept the "Fi-users are independent; stay true to their selves" "Fe-users are submissive; incapable of being their own person" set of definitions.)
3) They're unobservable and subjective
4) In spite of being a non-behaviorist attempt to understand personality, they're used and interpreted in a behavioristic way.
5) They have no verifiable existence outside of Carl Jung's imagination (artificial constructs which he, Myers, and her followers read into the personalities of other people, much as Marx and his followers interpreted human history to support their philosophy)
I just stick with the MBTI preferences. They're simple, straightforward, and more compatible with my common-sense and life experience
