    Yup... as I have said many times already - MBTI is a method of finding out which functions you use.

In social gatherings, I would talk to adults as opposed to play with children. I try to understand why people think and act the way they do. I base my information from what I observe and from the stories I exchanged with people over time. Why would some people become psychopaths from trama an others don't? Why would someone who seems normal be clinically depressed and suffers from mental instability? I've worked with the sick, the unfortunate, the abused and the mentally ill, your functions cannot explain their behaviours but yet everyone has a personality type.

    It's not intended to inform children anyway. It's supposed to be as accurate as possible, which means most likely that most adults will never even get it.
    I'm comparing the thought process to children because they are overall far more objective than adults. It is what makes them naive. They see things as it is while most adults see things through eyes where it is based on their knowledge and experience. A child wouldn't understand the functions you are talking about because it really doen't make any sense in describing people. I'm not saying tha mbti is that much better, but at least it describes it in a way people can see and relate to.
    Sorry for any typos, spelling or grammer errors but I'm a bit preoccupied planning my wedding.

    Yes, you have said it many times. But you haven't explained it once. Hmm.... but I have given justification... Hmm... Do you actually have a point? Or are you just reading from a website?


    No, they aren't. The whole point of the factor analysis was to determine that the 4 traits being measured were unique data points. Just as every question on the official test is measured to ensure that it is distinct enough that, in combination with other questions, it is indicative of that particular trait.
    The fact that they affect each other proves incontrovertibly that they're not unique. Besides, the argument at the end of my blade wasn't one questioning whether or not the points were unique, but actually that even if they were unique, but that ALL FOUR DICHOTOMIES have a different meaning for each type. The J of an ENTJ means something entirely different from that of an ENFJ. Before you dispute anything else, I want you to prove conclusively that the sentence I just said is untrue, since that is after all the crux of my point.


    Ah well, be sure to let the researchers know... they must of overlooked this for the last 60 years...
    Are you really that impressed by prestige and established accreditation? I realize these things are necessary in a few realms, but what I'm trying to point out to you is that those researchers are using statistics which do not inject causation. I'm saying that whoever deemed the test worthy may have been wrong. I'm not saying that the measure they used to decide of the test worked or not was faulty, but I am saying that the results don't prove conclusively that MBTI works.


    Yah, cause that wasn't tried...
    It was tried, but it was tried afterward, and didn't gain the same popularity. It doesn't mean it's any less reliable.


    Oh, it makes sense... but only when you are actually forced to validate your system against real people.

    Course, all of this is just because MBTI still uses functional theories. If it wasn't for MBTI, there would likely be no functional theory left and we'd all likely be using versions of NEO, MMPI or DSMs. The work CPP/CAPT put into MBTI (and other instruments they own) is about the only validation it has.
    You've got it backwards.

    basically, you cant test for T vs. F, then test for J vs. P, and then determine if T or F is introverted or extroverted.

    example questions:

    "Determine success by measurement or other objective method such as the time taken."
    1) yes
    2) no

    say a T would answer 1, okay?

    "You believe the best decision is one that can be easily changed"
    1) yes
    2) no

    say a J would answer 2

    so the person got points for xxTJ, right? that means they get points for Te, right? but if the person answered the second question 1, they'd get points for xxTP, which means they'd get points for Ti, yes?

    but the first question is a Ti question, not a Te one. that means that one out of two people will be scored incorrectly.

    maybe those weren't the best example questions, but you see my point i hope.

    Okay, you're obviously not getting it.

    Imagine a ruler (if you can). You use it to measure inches. Now imagine a meter stick. Obviously it measure meters. Centimeters are the closest unit to inches, but they're not really the same. There has to be some conversion done to get the accurate answer. That's basically what MBTI requires of itself. Since it doesn't calculate (it's a test, not a machine or a human) it would have to make sure that the things it measures line up in a way such that both measuring sticks line up. MBTI doesn't do this with its questions though.

    It's too black and white.

    Actually it's a Te question and not a Ti one, but the point stands outside of typos.

    No, I don't see your point. Whoever said that test were the way to type people. You are using functions. I am using - tried, tested and true behaviours related to the mbti traits. To me, functions doesn't prove anything. Whether someone shows a particular function or not does not mean he/she is better at something than someone else. You say you are Ni + Fe, so you understand people better. I beg to disagree. You may prefer these functions but it doesn't mean you are better that someone who is Ne + Fi. Functions can't explain why people do/think/act a certain way and so it can not be used to generalize what type a person is. You are simplifying a person's cognitive ability too much and identifying too much with your functions. People just aren't that simple!

    Thank you for proving my point.

    Yes, I'm very sure I'm INTJ - tested and true.

    You are judging me based on my said behaviour and applying a function to the behaviour. You do not know me, you definately do not know how and why my mind works the way it does. Functions will not tell you what type I am. Seeing me in actions, learning about my past, present and future and understanding what really goes on in that twisted little head of mine is what makes me who I am.

    Curious though, what functions would you give me and why are you questioning why I'm not an INTJ?

    actually, you're just blatantly wrong there.

    the whole point of functions is to show strengths of cognitive abilities.

    and, plus, you're USING DIFFERENT DEFINITIONS of these functions which i've said about 10 times already, so you're not actually disagreeing with me, you're just misapplying what i'm saying.
