# Thread: New type calculator with explanations -- Calculate your type!

1. cool stuff

F vs. T -3
N vs. S -8
(F+T) vs. (N+S) 3
Fi vs. Fe 1
Ti vs. Te 2
Si vs. Se 4
Ni vs. Ne 0

gives INFJ/ENFP. Changing the Ni vs. Ne slider in one direction or the other nails it down.

It seems like you give much more weight to the dominant function than to the more inferior functions. Good. Please keep it that way, forever

2. I got isfp. T vs F and Ti vs Te were the defining factors.

3. ## I like it.

I did it twice. The first time using the scales according to my own self knowledge. The second, I moved the scale taking my cognitive processes profile into account.

The first time I got ISTJ, the second INTJ ISTJ

4. For some reason I read this as "calculate your pet"

Now I wonder what is the type of your pet.

6. Interesting,
I got ENFP and ENTP

Or am I wrong in my assumption? In reality I relate to somewhere in the center of the TF-SN slide though. Both sides come into play for me.
It's not a bug -- all my program does is look for the first most used function (in this case Ti), and try to distinguish between INTP and ISTP with Ne vs. Se. If Ne and Se are the same it can't choose.

Unless maybe I misunderstand you. If so, please explain since I for some reason can't decode what you're saying.

Um, Fi deals with truth zero by definition. I don't know how to distinguish better.

I'm not talking about Fi types here (INFP and ISFP). I'm not saying they use Thinking zero. I'm just saying the function itself has nothing to do with truth (except if you're using some weird value-based definition of truth).

Yeah those work well too. I feel 'feasible' really means the same thing as 'implementable' in this context, as do 'right' and 'good' and 'correct' and 'true'. If I didn't say appropriate, though, I should have.

Not sure I get what you mean. If you get ESTJ, what that means is your Te has the highest score and your Si is higher than Ni.

I think that's the definition of ESTJ. Isn't it?

This is just a thought, I'm not sure if it's valid, but it's a hunch. Like those who make connections with experiences, would still in this scales eyes be S even though the act of connecting experiences is seen more as Ne, which correlates with NP's though this person may prefer experiences more than ideas. Does this make sense?
If a person makes connections with experiences, they are using both S and N. Only in situations where one of the two is more prevalent is it even possible to distinguish a preference.

The reason I had to have that scale was that if I didn't, then S+N would always be exactly 50% of the total functions (as would T+F). That's not very often the case with individuals, so I had to include it.

If you go towards the N+S side, your S and N functions will go up and your T and F functions go down.

I guess the way to use it would be to (in your case), compare your Ni score to your Fe score. Slide the scale until you think they have the right ratio. The rest of the stuff will follow.

1. I didn't really follow the description of Ti and Fi you gave. 'good' doesn't make sense to me.
Can you be a bit more specific?

2. I think it needs some kind of guide to how far you should generally pull a scale. I used 1 2 or 3 to be weak, medium or strong respectively, other people seem to max it out or something, and I bet there are all sorts of other ways to do it. There's 21 different spots you can put the slider isn't there?
That's a really good idea. And yes, there are 21 spots.

3. Since it is done by displacing one scale relative to another, shouldn't the scales be placed one on top of the other? That way it would be clearer which you believe is highest or not.
I'm not sure what you mean...

The sliders are arranged vertically in terms of their change-power.

I understand why you had to put that scale on the calculator, I just had trouble interpreting the description you put below it. The only thing I can figure is that you're describing the difference between going with a gut reaction in an unquestioning sort of way as opposed to questioning your reactions and arriving at a more thought-out approach.

Well, yeah, I do admit that I was someone stuck when trying to describe that one.....

I said the only description I could think of for that scale...any other thoughts?

Lol. He was an INTJ but he disappeared on Valentines Day. I hope he found a nice love and not a pack of hungry coyote. Sigh, I still miss my Macavity...
