    My favourite colour is red/orange.

    But the colour that suits my complexion is pink.

    And the colour that brings out the colour of my hair is purple.

    I don't know what to make of all this.

    Does it tell me anything about my personality type or yours?

    Victor.

    I rather like making domes.

    I made a rather large dome on a wharf out of oyster lease sticks without connectors. And I have a dome in my back yard.

    I like reading about domes and imagining where I could live in one.

    I did though once imagine a dome and triangular structure.

    Default French Film Festival

    I would love to continue chatting but I am off to the French Film Fesival presided over by Catherine Deneuve, the French Film star.

    There will be French people everywhere including the French Ambassador and his chic wife. At interval we drink white wine and after the movie, we go to the nightclub, "Minque", next door.

    Tonight I am going to see, "The Secret", set in Paris. Wish me luck.

    Oh yes, who do you identify with in Hamlet?

    Victoire.

    It is not desirable to transcend MBTI because MBTI is a form of social control.

    We are born without control of even our splincter and we learn control slowly and painfully over the next 22 years, at which age our brains are fully developed.

    So MBTI is desirable for those who have not yet learnt full control - to take MBTI from them would be cruel.

    But for those who have learnt control, it is possible and desirable to transcend MBTI.

    And it becomes easy to transcend MBTI simply by looking at its history.

    Katharine Cook Briggs and her daughter Isabel Briggs Meyers created the MBTI to facilitate the movement of women into the industrial workforce in order to wage war, in fact World War II.

    And interestingly they based the MBTI entirely on the book, "Psychological Types", by Carl Gustave Jung.

    Carl Jung was an enthusiastic supporter of the NAZI Party.

    And when the President of the Psychoanalytic Association resigned as a matter of conscience at the reification of Jews, Slavs and Negros, Carl Jung volunteered to be the President of the Association to help the Nazis carry out their program of reification.

    And Carl Jung helped them by writing the book, "Personality Types", to complement the Somatic Types of the Nazis. And the Somatic Types of the Nazis were Jews, Slavs, Negros, Asians and Aryans.

    And it is from this book that Mrs Briggs and her daughter copied to make the MBTI.

    The purpose of Somatic Types was to reify livling people as was the purpose of Carl Jungs, "Personality Types".

    And to reify means to objectify - to turn living people into objects - because killing a living person is difficult but liquidating and object is much easier.

    And so those who have failed to learn control, who have failed to gain their independence, rely on MBTI as a psychological crutch.

    MBTI reifies them and prevents them from realising themselves as free, living people.

    So for those unable or unwilling to gain their independence, MBTI acts as an authoritarian substitute.

    And the only price you pay for MBTI is your moral courage and of course your dignity.

    Victor.
    The fifth function is was Jung called the 'transcendent function'. Our 'type' is really just the conscious part of ourselves. Our type is more like our ego because it's how we identify ourselves and how others see us in the world. Jung thought of the transcendent part of ourselves as our true self. It unifies the opposites within us and symbolizes who we are a a whole. Introverts usually become extroverted during midlife and likewise, our types do not really stay the same and we know this because of 'Individuation'. Life is more a process of becoming we we truly are meant to be in God's eyes. Most of what we see in this world is not the true spiritual reality. The majority of individuals don't really know who they are at the core. Our true personality type is actually hidden, we are pulling back the layers to ourselves and rediscovering who we are as time progresses. Our opposing function describes more of who we are in the face of eternity.
