    Default Can You Spot It? Recognizing The 8 Cognitive Processes



    Well this isn't a book at all. It was a computer based training course lasting about 8 hours, including video and audio. There is a module for each of the cognitive functions. That isn't in of itself unique. What is unique is that the creator of the course (Vicky Jo Varner) trains you on what to look for to recognize when people are using each of those function attitudes. What exactly does Ne look like? What does Si look like? She will tell you. In addition to quoting Jung, she extensively quotes some of the more well known experts in the area - Berens, Beebee, Nardi, etc. She describes each of the 8 functions it in a fair amount of clarity, using words and visuals. Then on top of that, she provides links to numerous videos that demonstrates each of the 8 functions in action and there are also homework assignments which allow you to practice what you have learned. I loved this course. I learned more about functions in this course than any other place. It wasn't cheap, but I thought it was well worth it.

    What kind of advice does she give on how to spot functions? For example, I have a hard time identifying Si ... mostly because I'm still not sure I understand what it is ... and then, if I think too hard, I realize I feel that way about nearly all the functions.

    Not asking you to give away all $129 worth of trade secrets here, just asking for a general overview of her methods and suggestions with perhaps a couple of abbreviated examples.

    What she does is to thoroughly explain each of the cognitive functions in detail and then there are a bunch of videos that you watch which illustrate the functions. You are evaluating the words that someone is speaking and looking for the evidence of someone using the function. These are some things you'd look for in someone who is using Fe for example:

    - People who are concerned about feelings of others
    - People who do things for others
    - Others focused behavior in general
    - They think particular things are right and wrong because that is how people should behave
    - Considering others and the group
    - Organizing to meet others needs and honor their values and feelings
    - Maintaining societal, organizational or group values
    - Adjusting and accommodating others
    - Deciding if something appropriate or acceptable to others
    - Showing consideration for others
    - Checking appropriateness of actions
    - Affirming others

    SI is when someone looks like they are a slow on the outside but inside are thinking deep thoughts...It's mistakable for NI but goes deeper in the sense that it involves memories and their attributes.
