    Default What cognitive function corresponds with which cultural decade?

    I'm mainly referring to the 1950s through the 2010s, but I'm game to read anyone's interpretation of cognitive process(es) as they correspond to any particular decade!

    Enneatype and MBTI and whatever else type-inputs are welcome too. It's just for fun.

    I'll submit that the 2010s will be a decade of Ne-resourcefulness, followed by Si-stockpiling gratis the booming information age. So much data being hurled in all directions that needs to be multi-tasked and stored if proven useful.

    If I had to have a different one assigned to each....

    1950s: Fe
    1960s: Fi
    1970s: Se
    1980s: Ti
    1990s: Te
    2000s: Ni
    2010s: Ne
    Then potentially,
    2020s: Si

    It really does look like the 2010s is going to be a sort of faux-Ne culture, but since society in general is closer to Si dom, there's probably going to be a sort of chaos overload and something is going to snap, which brings us to the 2020s where we have to clean up the fun mess we made

    I thought this was really good til you got to the 90s and 2000s...

    I'm not sure what the fuck I'd put for those decades, though...

    To me Gen X(which kind of represents most of the '90s culture) has a ISTP flavor, the individualism, pragmatism, relaxed/easygoingness, and distrust in the lofty idealism of the Baby Boomers.

    The '00s with the influence of the Millennials seemed very ENFJ, with greater focus on social networking, more upbeat pop culture, openness to diverse cultures, and overachievement.

    It's probably harder to immediately categorize the recent decades(in comparison to the '50s, '60s, ect) because culture and media have become more fragmented since the late '80s.

    That's exactly my theory.

    Especially for the 2000s.
