Something occurred to me last night. What would be the difference if you relabelled extrovert and introvert as explorer and investigator? I don't think it's too far a stretch of the imagination to figure that extroverts want to do, like explorers, and that investigators are those who witness but do not necessarily partake, which is close to an introverts style.
It got me thinking, many of the problems with the MBTI system is that it was labelled up with a bias towards the NTP type. After all, when compared to "intuition" who would want to be labelled a "sensor", when compared to "thinking", who would want to be called a "feeler" and when compared to "perceptive", who would like to be known as "judgemental"?
These biases are daft as each preference has it's own use and speciality. So basically can we come up with words which, though still adequately defining the preference, remove these biases and produce a more neutral view of each preference? If not then can we relabel the preferences to something more appropriate perhaps even changing the letters E,I,N,S,F,T,J & P?
