    I mean... it's alright if you are I guess, but I would like to know...
    I was wondering the same thing.

    And why is this, Tater?

This would work in congruence with the fact that you could only use one function at a time, but eventually come up with an idea that considers many at one time. Good analogy?
    I think it's a good analogy, but according to function theory this would mean that someone would still be preferring Ti's version of the tree. It's one of the reasons why I gave up function theory - too much of it is so speculative and impossible to prove, too many contradictions and similar behaviors that can be explained by seemingly endless combinations of functions.


    Well, you know that, and the fact that I felt I could no longer associate myself with the Fi-ers on this board, as a whole. Their recent outcry of indignation over Fi definitions, combined with what seems to me as shockingly immature and rude behavior being explained away supposedly as "Fi" makes me quite suspicious.

    If function theory is about preference though this analogy would allow more than 16 combinations. As if you tailor it to your own needs you can use any combination of the eight functions you wish. So yes the decorations on a tree may be more one function than the other, but you could do an Ne, Se, Ti, Ni tree if you'd like, or something like that... This is a rudimentary idea.

    I think the ambiguity of this theory lends itself to the concept that it allows the ability to define a greater amount of people. Nothing is necessarily wrong, which is an Ne-er's dream.

    It's not really a question of "why", but of "how".

    The functions are dichotomous, split, and bimodal. It's quite clear. They do not blend into each other, though it is not surprising that MBTI typology has managed to convince some that they do by depicting behavior. Behavior is varied and not so clear.

    If two functions were to blend, they would no longer be two. They would be lost to the new product.

    every normal man must be tempted, at times,
    to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag,
    and begin slitting throats.

    Don't need to take this test to know which one I got since I always get white.

    Well, it's my nightmare because while most people on-line (and I should say specifically on this site, not on LiveJournal, LiveJournal friends are more inclined still to believe INFJ) are convinced of ENFP. Then I've gotten ENFJ, ESFP, ISFP, and even ISTJ. I think I've even gotten INTJ twice from two fools who didn't know how to type. In person I got ENFP, ENFJ, INFJ, and ISFJ, and one person who thought ESFP.

    I mean, what a bunch of shit. Really. It's so much easier for me to look at the four dichotomies and know for sure I'm an INFJ, because strictly from Keirsey/four dichotomies I'm INFJ, no doubt.
