    Lambchop, here's the link to the test I took. It measures "Cognitive Function", which basically just shows you in what order your prefer/use the eight functions.

    Well if I remember correctly, the ideal ISFJ jobs are jobs that involve caring for people or helping people in some way or basically just being involved with people.

    I could see myself being a psychologist or something like that, and often in my job there are times where I wish I could be involved with people just a little bit more. But then again, I also love what I do and I might miss some aspects of the job I have now if I were something else. So I think the 'ideal jobs' for your MBTI type are just a guide, they aren't necessarily black and white saying you'll never be content with your profession if you don't pick one of the ideal jobs for your type.

    That said, I do get to talk to people in my job fairly often and I have a good relationship with my co-workers so I guess my people-need is filled in that respect. I am a web developer for my profession by the way.

    Just because we are F's doesn't mean we don't enjoy logic and just because we are S's doesn't mean we don't enjoy a bit of theory, etc.

    FallaciaSonata,

    Now I'm even more confused:

    Based on your ranked responses to the 120 phrases...


    Based on your ranked responses to the 120 phrases...


    - Fi


    - Si


    - Ti


    - Te


    - Ni


    - Fe


    - Se


    - Ne



    Your Possible Type Code
    According to the traditional sorting method of finding the most-used functional pairs (such as Fi-Ne), your type might be:

    Possible result: ISTJ


    We are also trying a new sorting method to try to indicate best-fit type. This method is experimental and may not match your type.

    Possible result: ISFJ

    Your Developmental Curve
    This model attempts to graph a 'developmental curve'. Theoretically, people should choose simpler, less sophisticated aspects of the cognitive processes more often than they choose complex, more sophisticated aspects. The simpler aspects of each process are necessary to perform the more sophisticated aspects! However, because the phrases are in development, this measure has questionable validity.

    Your self-assessment curve = -5.7

    -- A curve less than 0 indicates you checked simpler phrases more often than sophisticated ones. This is expected, although a particularly low number (more than -10) might happen if the phrases were particularly unclear to you, or if you under-estimated your abilities.

    -- A curve greater than 0 indicates you checked sophisticed phrases more often than simpler ones. This would be counter to a developmental model and might happen if many phrases are badly written or if you have over-estimated your capabilities.

    Your Most-Used Processes
    Based on your response, these are your top three cognitive processes in use:


    Fi : Evaluating; considering importance and worth; reviewing for incongruity; evaluating something based on the truths on which it is based; clarifying values to achieve accord; deciding if something is of significance and worth standing up for.

    Si : Reviewing past experiences; 'what is' evoking 'what was'; seeking detailed information and links to what is known; recalling stored impressions; accumulating data; recognizing the way things have always been.

    Ti : Analyzing; categorizing; evaluating according to principles and whether something fits the framework or model; figuring out the principles on which something works; checking for inconsistencies; clarifying definitions to get more precision.

    Your Developmental Report
    Your pattern of responses indicates a developmental level in each cognitive processes. Since this is experimental, this report may be in error.


    Se,Ne
    You notice this process and enjoy when others use it but only occassionally find yourself engaging in it. You may marvel at others who do it very well. It doesn't appear useful to you personally and can annoy you if others use it too much.

    Ni,Te,Fe
    You value this process as a helpful aid, even if you do not engage it that often. You trust it contributes to life, particularly when done by others who do the process well. You might recruit others to help you do this process for you.

    Ti,Si
    You create value, aid others and get things done everyday using this process. You function well here, know all the ins and outs, strengths and limits of this process. You have made this process your own, something personal and unique to you.

    Fi
    You sustain and grow yourself and those around you long-term through this process. You are at your best, your peak creative and leadership moments when engaged in this process. This is a lead role; it is who you are and what you truly do.

    I'm not sure this helped -- can you help explain it to me?

    Very interesting. And yet another confirmation that I'm ESFJ. Thanks for posting that. I would like to learn how to understand cognitive functions better.
    Si, Fe equal Fi & Ti

    That test isn't really supposed to be used to type yourself with, but if answered correctly, it can show which of the eight functions you favor, or use more.

    My dominant function is Si, but that test showed that I use Te slightly more. But I still have the traditional, Si-Te, Ne, and Fi. I actually use the Ne more than the Fi, too, which is interesting.

    Didn't mean to confuse you. If you have any questions, I'll try to clear them up. But no promises. I only *think* I know everything. ; )

    So according to this, Fi (Introverted Feeling) is my lead cognitive process and my other two main ones are Ti (Introverted Thinking) and SI (Introverted Sensing)? And none of my main cognitive functions are extroverted? I guess I'm not sure what this is telling me?

    Lambchop, maybe you have balanced T/F.

    Don't you want to smack me Giggly and say "Duh!"?? I guess I'm a little slow to understand things sometimes! The balance statement might be exactly correct though.

    No, not at all! I didn't know what the cognitive functions meant either when I first come to the forum. In time, you'll get it.

    I guess I'm a little slow to understand things sometimes! The balance statement might be exactly correct though.
    It took me months to get it and I still don't have all 8 down. This was even after Magic Poriferan explained it pretty well.

    When I took this test I didn't know what any of it meant, but I'm glad that I took it when I didn't know what any of it meant, because once I learned what some of it meant, I could look back on my results and trust that I answered more accurately and objectively. Once you know what some of it means, you might be more prone to be biased when you answer the questions.
