    Wink pure_mercury ain't so pure

    Just as an update/aside, I took a really long "Jung" test just now, and here are my results:

    Actualized type: ESFJ
    (who you are)
    Extroverted (E) 89.66% Introverted (I) 10.34%
    Sensing (S) 53.13% Intuitive (N) 46.88%
    Thinking (T) 50% Feeling (F) 50%
    Judging (J) 51.35% Perceiving (P) 48.65%

    ESFJ - "Seller". Most sociable of all types. Nurturer of harmony. Outstanding host or hostesses. 12.3% of total population.
    *The current algorithm breaks the tie randomly so refresh the page to see alternate results


    I got a 50-50 tie in T/F, and just barely S and J.
    Who wants to try a bottle of merc's "Extroversion Olive Oil?"

    Since you are so close between so many of them, I wonder what your cognitive fucntions test looks like. Just curious.

    Or he could, instead of taking shortcuts, actually learn type theory and figure out his type using real life introspection, instead of answering questions with over-simplified, confusing language broad enough to cultivate a phony conclusion based on one's personal bias.

    Just a thought.

    You should get electroshock therapy. Or a hammer. I've heard those are pretty good at getting rid of unwanted thoughts.

    You should really take a cognitive functions test: Understanding the Eight Jungian Cognitive Processes / Eight Functions Attitudes (I by the way think most likely types would be ESFP, ESTP, ENFP, ENTP, ENFJ or ENTJ.)

    Moved from Sensor Bias. Hope you like the title.

    How is type theory any different, though? C'mon. The deciding factor is not the content of what's being studied -- it's the bias.
    Not really.

    I don't bother with type per se. Cognitive processes are my interest. More specifically, the relationships between them. I should have said that.

    There's no bias. Once you actually figure out what the CPs do, you can accurately determine your favorite functions.

    Hmm -- I agree, from a function-based perspective, that makes sense. Build your own functional hierarchy. But for the purposes of determining a preset type as seen in MBTI, where the distinctions between primary, auxillary, tertiary etc. functions play important roles in the determination, (not that I have much faith in the system myself) the tests are probably more convenient.

    A person drifting between INFP and INFJ, for instance, is likely to have trouble choosing between such function pairs as Ni-Fe, Fi-Ne. And woe is him if he decides he relates to Fi and Ni equally. That wasn't really the case with me, but I know it took me a great deal of reading and time to finally choose between the two for the purposes of entertaining some term called "dominant function".
    Not really.
