    Default Auxilary function

    So lately I've been thinking about MBTI. (Surprising isn't it? :P) Anyway, I've realized that since I'm pretty positive on my primary function, to figure out my type, all I have to do is figure out my auxiliary function. Simple, right? Surely I've developed at least enough of it for me to figure it out.

    I know that I definitely relate to Fe more than Te if Te is all about organization. But surely Te must be something more than that?

    ISFJ - Serving others was a main point in the description and I don't agree with it. I do agree with family being my most important thing, but beyond that I'm not sure.

    ISTJ - The description was rather short, and while I don't relate to it that much, but I wouldn't discount it.

    These are good profile too... the best I've seen. They come from interviews with people of those types-

    ISFJ
    ISTJ

    Also this implies ISFJ- Behind-the-Scenes
    This implies ISTJ- Chart-the-Course

    Yeah, that website has some really great descriptions.

    I mostly agree with the ISFJ description, except for the organization part (which is very minor in relation to the whole description). Brainstorming isn't difficult for me, but I don't do it because I like to just jump in to whatever I'm working on. Let's say I'm going to write a paper, I don't want to fill out a "brainstorming sheet," I just want to start writing.

    For the ISTJ description, I reaaallly disagree with the last paragraph. It talks about planning every event I am going to do the next day. And I don't believe in more work than fun. :/ But other than that, I agree with most of it.

    I actually don't think I've ever looked at those before. I definitely identify with the ISTJ one if I'm trying to get work done when I'm in a group.

    Do you organize your world around what will work or what is right?

    Err... what do you mean by the first part of that question?
