# Thread: HOW FUNCTIONS ACTUALLY WORK

1. ## HOW FUNCTIONS ACTUALLY WORK

After spending some time researching Jungs theory and taking the time to understand it, Im pretty sure I figured it out.

Ok so...

Ji = Introverted Feeling & Introverted Thinking
Je= Extroverted Feeling & Extroverted Thinking
Pe= Extroverted Intuition & Extroverted Sensing
Pi= Introverted Intuition & Introverted Sensing

For INTJ type the stack will look like this: (keep in mind the universe doesnt make lines from left to right or right to left, they start at a given point and spread in both directions (curved linear)).

Je + Pi + Pe + Ji -looks like this:

Te <--Ni + Fi--> Se (beginning point would be Ni than outwards to Te, then Fi outward to Se).
Fe <--Si + Ti--> Ne (shadow functions also firing off the same pattern but flipped (Si outward to Fe, then Ti outward to Ne))

Now imagine these divergent routes the electricity is traveling. From the center outward.
INTJ <---- center ----> ISFJ (INTJ looks like this)

Notice how the introverted functions(percieving) are in the center, extroverted(judging) on outsides, therefore both types are introverted.

Some other examples:

ENTJ <---- center ----> ESFJ

ENTP <---- center ----> ESFP

INTP <---- center ----> ISFP

And so on..

Summary: we are all bipolar. We are all universes. We are convergent/divergent, centripedal/centrifugal, and some of us are even godly :P

2. I can't figure out the connection you are making between cognitive functions and direction/location.

3. I don't see where it comes from either. Please don't make stuff up about typology and try to pass it off as fact

7. I always thought that the older I got, the more I'd understand TypeC. However it seems that the more threads I read here, the more confused I get.

I like that illustration. We lean towards our tertiary since its in same direction as dom. Thats why its at the center. Basically Ni leads to Te and Fi to Se. The part missing is the loop...from Te back to Se. That completes the cycle. Cloclwise is the healthy direction...Ni leads to group thought to action and back to feeling judgement. Its a productive manner of INTJ. Not supression of Fi, just not leading by Fi.

Unhealthy is the counterclockwise...Ni triggers Fi which triggers action which triggers group thoughts...it completely disconnects from group which hits a negative view of group and causes an unhealthy loop and royally jacks Fi and Ni and causes further introversion and mad scientist.

Makes sense to me

Center creates paths...looking from dom forward and it hides paths.

Exactly. Its the only way that makes sense to me given my understanding of electricity/magnetism and the universe
