    I'm not either. These books assume we've all gone and determined our types professionally, and now we're applying this knowledge in our relationships. But nothing could be farther from the truth. The only typology help I've gotten in a relationship was put out by the APA, none of this stuff we talk about here.

    Type yourself by behavior, not functions, to answer your question, but that is only my opinion.

    I agree, because in all the time I've been here, I haven't seen anything good come from typing by functions. But it has made for a lot of confused discussion.

    All that is true, and emphatically acknowledged by Jung—One can never give a description of a type, no matter how complete, that would apply to more than one individual, despite the fact that in some ways it aptly characterizes thousands of others." - Daryl Sharp

    What would your opinion be on this quote?
    'One of (Lucas) Cranach's masterpieces, discussed by (Joseph) Koerner, is in it's self-referentiality the perfect expression of left-hemisphere emptiness and a precursor of post-modernism. There is no longer anything to point to beyond, nothing Other, so it points pointlessly to itself.' - Iain McGilChrist

    "Suppose it didn't," said Pooh, after careful thought.
    Piglet was comforted by this.

    Daryl is a hardcore skeptic.

    I'll go on to explain that with another quote from Daryl's book:

    'Whether Jung's model is "true" or not - objectively true - is a moot point. Indeed, is anything ever "objectively" true?'

    Hmmm, gee I don't know. Is it true that Daryl Sharp wrote a book. Is it "objectively" true that Daryl Sharp wrote a book?

    Hah! Mind you ive never read the book it was merely a quote someone mentioned to me, although I dont necessarily agree with it.

    Although I suspect that the context of that line is obvious.
