    For the longest time, I had difficulty understanding how the cognitive functions work. I could read about them, but I thought it would be so much easier if I had an analogy to work off of. I can imagine that it might be difficult for some to immediately recall what Ne, Fi, Te, Si, etc actually are, without memorization, which is difficult for me.

    A.A. Milne's Winnie the Pooh is a perfect example, because the 8 animals that live in the hundred-acre wood are two dimensional: They do not learn, or grow outside of themselves, because they can't. They are all fragment's of a young boy's imagination. And although they are incapable of growth, they rely on each other in their own ways, and work well as a team, when they decide to. Because they are static characters, they do not have personality types, with the exception of Christopher Robin, who is the only one who actually learns and grows.

    The 8 cognitive functions work in a similar way: ...

    I recently finished a series of Enneagram articles. I was dissatisfied with most Enneagram descriptions, because they often consist of nothing more than a laundry list of traits with little reasoning behind them. For a long time, I was turned off to Enneagram because it didn't make sense. So I recently decided to write my own Enneagram articles that would start off with the most basic elements of the personality and then move up to the outward traits that we all know and love.

    These descriptions cover the following things:

    - A brief introduction to Enneagram.
    - A summary of basic concepts about the type.
    - A description of the type.
    - Analysis of the type's wings.
    - Analysis of the growth and stress arrows of that type.
    - Descriptions of the type's variants (sexual, self-pres, social)
    - MBTI and Enneagram Interaction
    - Paths to security for each type
    - Freudian associations

    Enjoy. ;D ...

    Here's a recent video I made explaining how cognitive functions work while comparing the INFJ and INFP types. Enjoy!

    Myers Briggs For Dummies
    "Summary of the Cognitive Functions"

    This article is a short but descriptive summary of the four cognitive functions, Sensing, Feeling, iNtuition, and Thinking. Each cognitive function is expressed either with an Introverted or Extroverted “attitude” next to the function.
    Example: (Se, Si, Fe, Fi, Ne, Ni, Te and Ti)

    Ne is perceiving abstract patterns and connections in response to stimuli (either in the external world or in the mind. ) Ne generates new information starting from something existing. Ne focuses on future possibilities.

    Ni is the creation of mental imagery independent of outer stimuli. Ni generates abstract structural images of a given problem domain that a person can view from different points of view at will. Ni focuses on the structure of things from a timeless point of view.

    Se is indiscriminant awareness of the physical environment. Se prefers to indulge in that which exists in the present moment.

    Si is awareness of concrete forms and categories of sensory perception. Si interprets stimuli

    Socionics is a theory of information processing and personality type, distinguished by its information model of the psyche (called Model A) and a model of interpersonal relations. It incorporates Carl Jung's work on Psychological Types with Antoni Kępiński's theory of information metabolism. Socionics is a modification of Jung's personality type theory that uses eight psychic functions, in contrast to Jung's model, which used only four. These functions process information at varying levels of competency and interact with the corresponding function in other individuals, giving rise to predictable reactions and impressions—a theory of intertype relations.

    Socionics was developed in the 1970s and '80s, primarily by the Lithuanian researcher Aušra Augustinavičiūtė, an economist, sociologist, and dean of the Vilnius Pedagogical University's department of family science. The name "socionics" is derived from the word "society", because Augustinavičiūtė believed ...

    If anyone is familiar with them at all, most people probably consider the band MGMT a one-hit-wonder with their 2008 song Electric Feel (and that’s okay, because it’s a really fucking good song).

    They also have lots of other good fucking songs and have a cult following among stoners, 21st century hippies, hipsters, and people with a good taste in music. But what I think many people miss is that the duo’s songs often contain a critique of their generation (also my generation and that of the bulk of PerC’s users) concealed in a cloak of trippy psychedelic imagery.

    In one of their songs they modified Timothy Leary’s 60’s counterculture phrase “Turn on, tune in, and drop out” to fit the American mainstream youth of today with “Turn it on, tune it in, and stay inert.”

    Their inclusion of the “it” is really an interesting and understably clever bit of writing. There’s very little doubt in my mind this refers to my generation’s obsession with technology. ...
