    I already told you about your lack of integrity.
    If you don't like my answer, I don't really care.

    sigh

    No, human psychology and interaction can't be completely explained by two letters.

    Jungian functions are generalized descriptions of temperamental dispositions.

    None of this is scientific and none of it can be proven empirically.

    It's all just an arbitrary labeling system.

    Happy?

    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?

    Hmm, I guess that was called for.

    I mean you don't go to the church and question the existance of God.

    people apply their own personal interpretations to the bible with just as much haphazard freedom as they seem to with MBTI.

    What-you're not going to parrot Lenore Thomson for the noob?
    C'mon. Repeat after me:

    Lenore says. Lenore says. Lenore says. Lenore says.
    Lenore says. Lenore says. Lenore says. Lenore says.
    Lenore says. Lenore says. Lenore says. Lenore says.
    Lenore says. Lenore says. Lenore says. Lenore says.

    We don't claim that the functions represent real biological processes. They're just made up, arbitrarily assigned categorizations of behavior.

    There's no testable claim being made here. I can't prove that I'm an ENTP, and there's no proof of any types because they're just made up categories.

    Do you ask for scientific proof that some movies are comedies and others are dramas? No, because they're just made up labels for ease of categorization. That's all this stuff is, not science, not testable, not anything but made up labels.

    No, Lenore gives a type test in her book, and I find all type testing ridiculous. Remember? (This is also why I don't really care about Singer-Loomis--all they've offered is another testing method for a concept I don't think can be tested at all.)
