    Default cognitive functions questions, integration, and infj as NiTi

    what are the best places to take a cognitive functions test? i would imagine i would score highest in Ni and Ti, with Fe next and my inferior Se would be so blatantly bad it would totally corroborate my infj typing.

    is there any information about how being a borderline j would effect the organization or development of cognitive functions? the more i use Ti, it seems like the more wandering and intp-like and disembodied and theoretical/abstract and floaty i become. totally relational and conceptual and de-centered.

    my entire college education was highly abstract systems theory and theoretical language-games of all sorts (social and cultural theory, complex systems and ecology, cognitive science, etc). i think this = overly developed Ti.

    i want to integrate my functions better and improve my extroverted processes. i am borrowing Te from my intj friend. i need help becoming more efficient, at least passably disciplined, and less wastefully indecisive. i do not need to be an abstract machine forever.

    NiTi INFJs are definitely possible

    You can try this test, but it's not incredibly accurate.

    The last time I took it, I got Ti 1st and Ni 2nd, followed by Fe, Ne, Te, Fi, Si, Se.

    i tested as NiTi with Fe next, Ne Fi Si, then Te and Se.

    how do you get anything done as an NiTi? are you a completely self-absorbed introvert?

    You'd look something like Evan I suppose.

    Well most of what I do goes through Fe...

    I just think a lot before I act. It's not like I don't act.

    that was more of a self-criticism than directed at you. i am seriously trying to figure out a way to use my cognitive functions to help me act in a better, more productive, less random shot-in-the-dark wildly-flailing kind of way. make shit happen, etc.

    no Se doesn't exactly help matters, half the time i have no actual information to go on, and no internal agenda that can speak to such small and detail-oriented decisions as the ones that actually matter on the way to anything. it's the lack of zoom-in that is holding me back as i wait for an extremely abstract insight that makes me feel like i understand but not that i know what to do.

    i would think that trying to develop Fe might help. being more extroverted - focused on the external - should help you in the world of action, instead of just thought. (note: i could be TOTALLY wrong, being quite shaky with MBTI/cognitive functions theory.)

    actually, i think Te would be best for the job that you're describing, but since its so low down in your function order it sounds quite difficult and unnatural to boost. work on it slowly, be patient, disciplined and dont hate yourself. nothing good comes out of negativity.

    ^^this is true about Fe. just gotta start small and build up. take more risks but take 'em slowly. really the key is finding a positive social environment in which you can thrive. without that, you're kinda just fucked.

    being disciplined and taking care of your body is a decent way too. it's easier being positive when you physically feel great.

    self-understanding also helps deal with some of the constant worries, insecurities, and projected fears that contaminate social interaction when unhealthy. just improved awareness and constructs of thought that help you detach when necessary and let things go. Fe implosion is one of the worst experiences in the world.

    Right on.

    The state i am in: You have excellent strategy, and it's only missing the right application. Fe (group harmony) + Se (action; physical awareness) is one way to start. For example, if you want to practice being productive, you can build this mentality by inserting bits of it into your interactions with other people.
