I chose the same answer. Lol.

We know that N and F will be ranked amongst the first two prefered functions for Mike. But how does the MBTI test for the EXACT order in which Mike prefers these functions -his socalled 'functional preference order'? It doesn't. At least not directly. It determines Mike's preference order only INDIRECTLY. It INFERS it from how he scored on the four scales (I, N, F and P - in this example). And this inference is made on the basis of the very ASSUMPTION that we are calling into question - that all Introverts who have an F-N-S-T preference will necessarily test 'P'. It is a 'circular' argument; it 'begs the question'.

That's brilliant!

It's not that brilliant.

According to Fudge and Dink T's are brilliant. God, I'm brilliant.
I'm so thrilled to know that, I'm going to have a seizure.

6. Oh I get why mal thinks it's "brilliant." Didn't automatically see how it related to function order like I did.

Now, mal, you'll understand wtf I was talking about for the entire thread, and why I said it was calling me an ENTP.

7. thinking =13
intuiting =11
sensing =6
feeling =7

T-N-S-F = inTp, enTj, inTj, enTp
BAHAHAHA!!! :yim_rolling_on_the_

Though I will admit... I didn't understand quite a bit of the questions and had no stance on a bunch of them.

Oh, and I feel special because I actually knew what the word 'desultory' meant.

8. Now, now, don't be skeptical. It might upset mal.

A well-considered skepticism makes sense at least.

I've been studying personality for going on two years now. I also know some of these people getting these preposterous results perhaps a tiny bit better than you, so I see just how ridiculously wrong it is, while you don't.

And you clearly don't understand enough about Jungian function theory to see exactly what Jag and skylights exposed with that code.
