    Of course you can. You don't need to rely on or utilize an auxiliary function during cognitive thought.

    Extraverted function attitudes will be much easier to recognize in general because that is how one engages with the external world.
    You can engage with the external world with an introverted function. It's not about engagement, I think this is a somewhat false misunderstanding of what cognition actually means. Introversion-extroversion are two ways of understanding the world, where our focus lies. As a dominant introvert I process all information through my lens of introversion. This is what it means to be introverted. So when I communicate with other people I primarily do so through my lens of introverted understanding. I don't need to engage the world with Se or Te.
    I find Si somewhat evident as I get to know someone. Ti seems relatively easy to recognize. Fi is harder. Ni to me is the hardest.
    If you're actually an Ni dom, don't you think this is strange?

    I'm glad it's easy for you but I have seen enough people who are poor at recognizing Ni dominance, even though in some cases they perceive themselves to be good at it, that I tend to think it's one of the more difficult ones to recognize.
    Or maybe they're not Ni types.

    I challenge you to find an example - let's say a video on youtube where you can see someone who is clearly demonstrating Ni. You can see some of the results or outcomes of it but it is not that easy to discern.
    I'm much better at typing people through text, but let's take Carl Jung for example. All his writing reeks of Ni. It's very easy to discern because all of his cognition comes from this place where he first of all seeks personal symbolic understanding of the world. He seeks meaning and causes. That's one way you can recognize egoic Ni, whether people are interested in looking into what things mean, especially in a symbolic sense.
    Could be but my statement didn't imply that they know anything about their type. It relates to assessing another person's type from an outside perspective.
    I've been around type forums for over a year now and during this time I have increasingly come to the conclusion that people know shit about themselves and who they are, and the systems to apply it properly on themselves in order to assess their types. Which is why all this means very little to me as a whole. Do you see how this perspective alone is introverted? Probably not.
    Apparently you are more fortunate than I in your ability to ascertain this - or at least you think you are good at it .
    I don't think I am good at it, I know I am good at it.

    By the way, ENFPs are pretty good at understanding where INTJs are coming from.
    To a degree, due to shared Fi-Te cognition. It's more that they understand your emotions. Socionics goes into this into greater detail. People of the same type will however be the best at understanding each other, since you actually share cognition.

    Did you ever consider yourself to be a dominant Fe type by the way?

    I was waiting for the day you and I would meet.

    Best post in this whole thread, although that's not saying much because this thread sucks.

    A discussion of the brain, cognition, epistemology, truth, talking styles and penis size - and the only source quoted is a 19th century mystic? Kyrie eleison! For what it's worth, though, I think Kalach won, because, as much as he plays the game, I doubt he is in it for 'logical, correct or even good interpretations of the original theory', but rather for the ultimate price: truth... or at least truthiness. Personal entertainment too, of course.

    I myself too have personally posted a lot of stupid, offensive, and logically inconsistent stuff to this forum as well, but the mods (like yourself) have never really cracked down on me much and, to this day, still haven't done. Nonetheless, I would like to think that I've had a history of creating high quality posts on here as well, which have gone from insanely deranged humor all the way to the deepest philosophies of everything, so on the whole I believe myself to be a good addition here on this forum (and it's also been said by others that my posting quality has been gradually evolving to new levels, so at least it seems progress is being made).

    On a side note, I like how you have often voted in the polls posted in my threads, and even your occasional posts to accompony them, so on the whole, what I'm doing is good I think.

    What is truth and what says I am not concerned about truth?

    I know you were serious and perhaps my response was a bit rude. Maybe I should consider it a compliment. I am quite certain of my type. When I wasn't sure about my enneagram type, I started a thread a while back. It includes some test results and comments from a number of forum members. It might provide a little color. There are also a number of assessment results attached to my profile.

    Here is the thing. You are a really smart guy. You seem understand much of the theory well and I like a lot of your posts. They are insightful and good. However, you are overconfident in your knowledge and ability to ascertain function preferences or type and your suggestion that I might be an Fe dom is an example of where you are quite obviously wrong. Confidence is good. Arrogance is not attractive.

    It's interesting how people take being told they're mistyped. Kamishi typed me ESFP, and it bothered the fuck out of me. I wonder if these things get to people because it's like being told, "You know that thing you think you're good at? Yeah, sorry guy, not there." It wouldn't get such reactions if it were just a matter of the information being factually inaccurate, I think. People just don't like when you start fucking with their narratives. Myself included.

    FWIW, I don't think tests really mean much as far as typing goes. I think they'll get you in the ballpark, but I don't think they're the end all be all as far as determining type. Moreover, you, highlander, don't behave like other INTJ 6s I've known, which happen to include my own mother. As far as these things go, I can say pretty objectively, that you fall outside that pattern.

    I'm not exactly married to a theory of why that is. Maybe you've resolved more of your shit than most, and operate differently as a result. Who knows? Who cares, even.

    In other news, I really hate this thread.
    And so long as you haven’t experienced this: to die and so to grow,
    you are only a troubled guest on the dark earth

    Its not so much the mistyping as the arrogance in the face of being wrong.
