Thank you for your profound insight. Now, can you please repeat that in English?

Theories have to be 'proven' in real life. So, actions do matter...and thoughts eventually become actions? (I realize you are talking about 'information processing', but eventually, that is going to end up in action too, ergo the question).
I do believe that you can base personality/actions on this, most of the time. The issue, I believe, as I'm forming it right now, is the fact that these personality profiles that we read often begin with how our thinking process affects our actions, but then they take those actions and make assumptions based on those. Instead of going back to functions and making sure they are alligned with those they start chaining actions together in I suppose a logical manner, not necessarily a true one though. I still don't know as much as I'd like, but I'm getting there.

I am pretty new to all of this and here to learn. What you said makes me curious because both Jung and Kiersey are theories. Theories have to be 'proven' in real life. So, actions do matter...and thoughts eventually become actions? (I realize you are talking about 'information processing', but eventually, that is going to end up in action too, ergo the question).
Well... what I'm saying is that Jung's theories deal exclusively with thought processing, and the behavioral descriptions of the four-letter code have more to do with the actions that those thought process are likely to result in, rather than those actions being set in stone. That's where Kiersey fucked up upon trying to "improve" on Jungian typology.

9 X 9 = T(9 + 9)
9 - 1 = 8

8 + 8
Inclusion:
8 X 8

16
16 + 16
16 + 16 + 16
16 + 16 + 16 + 16

What are the corresponding numbers each time you turn the chart?
And what is their relationship to the original numbers and to each other?

I am not sure just how facetious I mean to be here.

But it means you have a balanced J/P.. what is so confusing about it?

6. I suppose at this point the question means more what qualities of each make a balance between P and J?
