The functions:

•Perception (taking in information; "irrational"):
Sensation: registers tangible reality as real and reacts accordingly
iNtuition: registers the implications of reality and puts it out as an idea
•Judgment (rationally assessing information):
Thinking: Assesses, understands, and responds to the way things work
Feeling: Assesses, understands, and responds to emotional affect (sorting out of feelings)

The Attitudes of the functions (whereby we filter reality, according to stimulus):

extraversion is stimulated by the environment of external "objects", including other people, groups, etc.
introversion is stimulated by the individual, where the "subject" reflects and references internalized "models" of reality.

The eight function-attitudes (also called "processes"):

Se engagement of tangible reality is stimulated by the environment
Si engagement of tangible reality is stimulated by individual reference
Ne engagement of the implications of reality is stimulated by the environment
Ni engagement of the implications of reality is stimulated by individual reference
Te determination of what’s technically correct is stimulated by the environment
Ti determination of what’s technically correct is stimulated by individual reference
Fe determination of what’s humanly desired is stimulated by the environment
Fi determination of what’s humanly desired is stimulated by individual reference
