    were jung's clients purely expressing themselves, or interacting with him in some way?

    -is it possible to communicate something personal to another person without unconsciously interacting with their personality and thus changing the way we project our personal information?

    cant reply to that. ("to what extent" .... big question ... )

    if i was forced by my family to act like an estp (i would not be capable of doing this, but for the sake of argument ... ) ... then i should probably secretly be aware of why i am trying to live up to that demand. - carl jung would ask the right questions (like "what are you afraid of?") and find out, that i am motivated by extroverted feeling to pretend that i am estp.

    I had myself typed by a test. If I tried to have typed by myself I would have thought I was a T.

    This mainly due to a lack of understanding of the system. I would have made a simple assumption that F's are ruled by emotions and T's by cold hard facts. I'm the queen of indifference and make decisions based on facts.

    But I'm really good at understanding others feelings and willing to take the not so smart path to please people. This makes me more a F.

    This is why it's important to have other people type you too. You act differently with other people around and may use a function that you don't use in your solitary life.
