    Default What cognitive function makes you skeptical?

    I wonder. XD thanks.

    Better yet, what mbti are skepticals?!

    Like one would say something but she wouldn't easily believe it unless there's proof..

    Eventhough there's proof she still might not be easily convinced.

    I'd say dominant intuitives (ENTP, ENFP, INTJ, INFJ) are probably the most likely to be skeptical and distrust face value/not be easily convinced by something suspicious, although it depends on what you're skeptical of. I'd say the INxJ would be the most likely to try and predict the one truth. The ENxP would likely spend 5 hours theorizing and come up with 5,000 possible truths or reasons to not trust whatever it is they're skeptical of. All 4 tend to read between the lines and realize what is up rather quickly. Enneagram 6 would also likely make a person a skeptic.

    My INTJ (6w5) brother and I (ENFP 4w3) are both very skeptical, as is my ENTP (7w6) friend.

    Ti needs proof more than any other function imo. Skepticism isn't the same as requiring a full battery of factual evidence that proves something.
    You hem me in -- behind and before;
    you have laid your hand upon me.
    Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.

    I'd agree, the intuitive doms are the most skeptical, whereas xxTPs need the most (Logical) proof.

    What may be proof to one may not be proof to another.

    I'm usually very skeptical about Ni. A lot of what Ni doms like to say sounds like one huge conspiracy theory to me. Then if they don't feel like talking conspiracy they like to discuss sort metaphysical laws of existence and nonexistence and I like to keep my both feet on the ground rather than talk about what's unreal. The other thing about Ni is that a lot of what these people say as their supernatural "aha" moment seems totally obvious to me that I wouldn't even bother to really think of it. Like they come to me with this supreme idea and I'm usually like "yeah, I know...so what?" and that usually makes them cringe like I can't really appriciate their genius mind.

    Another function that makes me skeptical and I actually have a huge issue with it IRL is Fe. I can't help myself but for me whatever Fe people it always seems fake, forced, unnatural... Even when I think they're being honest I usually find their actions to be too theatrical and usually unnecessary.

    I completely agree, I'm always really bothered by people acting fake to fit social principles. Like I don't want to be mean to Fe doms but I'm rather skeptical of conforming socially, it seems rather scary and unnatural for me. Then again I'm an ENFP and a 4 so go figure :p

    I really need to learn more about doms, so I can understand the comparisons more.

    But, I am very skeptical of most things in life.

    By coming to this conclusion it may be safe to say ENTPs would be the greatest skeptics
