    Do not take my interpretation as the truth. I make no indications that it is one and ever was one. Merely my view.

    I refuse to take any responsibility beyond what I stated.

    You didn't. I forgot to modify that I also included other observations of your posts in different threads. You seemed to use your own Fe to measure how much Fe Mystic Tater had, and this is what I was initially speaking about.

    I always re-evaluate my own position, but privately. I am aware that I do not easily share Ni for personal, self-preservative reasons, and it gives me a different external image (Si-Te) because of this decision. To actively correct this perception so that others could see me the way I see myself, is not something I'm very concerned with. I'm more interested in executing my personal plans the way I see fit, which sometimes reflects a separate personality because I don't reveal the way I make decisions. Explaining the entire concept so that someone can see my reality is incredibly exhausting. I only do this if I want to create a learning experience.

    Don't worry, I won't. Neither should you.

    Again, rethink Fe. And quit psychoanalyzing people since you're apparently not very good at it. As for the second sentence, I did nothing of the sort. But you would know that if you were really Ni-dom.

    I'm still learning more about the eight functions, so this should not be a concern.

    Please read the prior responses. I said this analysis is only applicable to my world. Another reason why I am hesitant to share my Ni is because I acknowledge that many people do not enough background information of who I am to perceive them the way I intend it. Ni is very subjective and it must be understood as such.

    I willing present objective information (S, Te) because it requires a lesser awareness of my identity. They can easily mold the data to their preferences and it will still work.

    Then you didn't. As I said, I change my perceptions as I receive new information.

    Another addition:

    Quite an unreasonable suggestion. I have yet to meet a person who does not conjure the slightest first impression whatsoever in any given circumstance.

    Example: "And also rethink Ni because you don't seem to have much of it at all (hint: look into Si-Te)."

    If I have any poor psychoanalyzing skills (which I agree I do for certain types), then I will simply improve on them. Rejecting a challenge merely because I have insufficient abilities only stunts all potential improvement. This will be a disservice to myself, and anyone who demands that I understand them. I live with many SFJs relatives who happen to believe I will immediately know what they're thinking, so giving up is not an option lest I enjoy listening to their constant nagging. The "good" psychoanalyzing skill I demonstrated here was even poorer in the past. I corrected them by risking failure.

    Quote Originally Posted by Lauren Ashley View Post

    Yes, I make mistakes. Plenty of them. I don't need to publicly express this along with other personal information unless I think it benefits the situation. I highlight what could be done, and less on how I arrived there. (Which again, involves a tremendous understanding of my entire self to comprehend my reasoning.) If this happens to be the wisest decision, I would rely on more objective functions to translate my thoughts, in order to limit the confusion such as the one happening now, and get everyone straight to the point.

    Generally, what's written in the post you pointed out, is entirely directed to Mystic Tater. If I were writing it to someone else, I will hold back that analysis to myself and allow them to speak first. My thoughts are always evolving, and I want to refrain from allowing others to view these initial beliefs as the final conclusion. (Another reason why Ni is better viewed as the user sees it, and why I rarely bother explaining or showing it to the outsider. An example of how my Ni gets misinterpreted is evidenced by this post -- here -- from this post --here. Disagreement is one thing, but being subjected to agree to a false interpretation is another story. I take responsibility for anything I have actually done, or intended to do.)

    Next time, I'll write down the "warning: incomplete, and highly subjective analysis ahead" disclaimer because I did not realize anyone, but Mystic would respond to my personal thoughts as I was directly answering to his inquiry of me. I have a whole lot more subjective things to say, yet who will listen to my initial ideas? Not many. Whether I state them or keep silent, they still exist. This gets filtered out if I see someone, like yourself, searching for conclusions (Ti, Fe, Fi, Te) over random instincts (Ni, Ne, Se, Si) that has yet to be 70-100% verified. They're more or less unclear puzzle pieces I'm seeking to expand on. Good insights start somewhere, even if they are from a wrong hypothesis.

    At the bottomline, guessing doesn't qualify as the serious mistake one takes credit for. It's more of a necessary error I use to trace the bigger picture, which is mostly unexplored. The official conclusion you're looking for has to wait until I uncover those major landmarks through experimentation.

    Agreed.

    PM or write in my user profile, if you like to continue.

    [This is nothing personal, beyond a basic interest in figuring out how I could make my inner, unfinished ideas more accessible to the public when I am questioned. It is something that could not be directly answered by anyone, but myself. External reactions (dislikes, likes or statements of individual preferences) to my posts are enough to resolve this issue. At the same time, this doesn't indicate my posts will become agreeable.]

    Ha, maybe.

    Exactly. Words mean only much as the outsider understands them. And imagine being the one of the few individuals who speaks a certain language. A large percentage of what I say typically gets lost in translation and I cannot depend on my natural preferences to explain it further. I contemplate with my natural preferences, and then translate them into another form. I'm not surprised if someone thinks I'm a natural speaker of a non-INTJ language. I sometimes feel flattered when they believe I am that good.

    I'm super glad you understood this. I promise you it will help in the future when you meet people who are vastly different from you. Make the most of your given situation.

    I'm very flexible because I am occasionally too impatient to wait for the opposition to change, and I have molded myself this way to get things done quickly, effortlessly and effectively as much as possible. I can also be inflexible when I see that their criticism is more valuable than their agreement.

    Someone else may do the same thing for a separate reason. Again, there are endless possibilities of getting onto the same path.

    I don't always fit this. Lately more of the time than not, my Fi has been higher than Te, but never higher than Ni. One would think that would make me an F, but I just don't fit with F types. I'm sure the definitions of the function positions stay true, for their purpose, but often times a new dominant purpose is born. I don't see how someone can't engage in a new process for many days, causing the confusion. I've done it plenty of times, but I didn't think to change my type because of it because I've always gone back to Ni, and Te has always gained its strength back and lasted. That's why you should analyze the past typings, like how the OP has been INFP for a while, means it is probably his/her type no matter what.

    He doesn't actually have high Fi if he's an INTP; his Ti just recognizes situations where failing to take ethics into account would result in a broader breach of logic. Ti puts on an Fi mask because they're similar processes, but at the end of the day Ti is still most definitely in charge.

    Different people utilize different functions within their "type." There are no hard and fast rules to MBTI. People aren't machines with exact parts. I think it's completely disingeneous to think that that an individual INTP couldn't have high Fi, or any other combination of functions. MBTI isn't an exact science.

    Ti is most definitely in charge, I'll grant you that, but he also high Fi.

    That's great and all, but no, he doesn't.

    The fact that he appears very ethical to you from the outside and/or tests high Fi on cognitive function "tests" means little to nothing.

    If you really grill him deeply about the reasons for his apparent "high Fi", you'll discover that they're all just rooted fundamentally in Ti. He probably holds a number of similar ethical beliefs to yours, but the reasons for them are not the same. Ti doesn't consider logic and people to be inseparable the way Fi does; anything he's doing that appears to be motivated by Fi is really just Ti.

    Shadow functions aren't exercised directly; they're only imitated in situations where the equivalent natural function sees the advantage in imitating them.
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?
