    A suggestion for a way to help understand the way the Cognitive Functions work

    My own understanding is gradually improving but i still don't feel confident that i have grasped it totally. I was thinking today and out of that thinking came a thought and that thought was how about an apple? An apparently simple object but with many facets. How would Se/Si/Ne/Ni perceive the apple? What about Te/Ti/Fe/Fi?

    Se = taste, smell, feel of the apple - "This apple is such a bright red. It smells absolutely incredible! It's so juicy and ripe!"
    Si = rotted spots or other abnormalities, that aren't a part of the "standard" apple - "There sure are a lot of spots on this apple. It has quite a few 'soft spots', as well."
    Ne = "This apple would make a neat little 3D character, if I drew a face on him."
    Ni = (probably really reaching here) "Apples are red. Red is associated with lust, passion, etc. They used an apple in Sleeping Beauty. Perhaps the associations with the color red, were intended to make the 'poisoned apple' symbolic of the 'death of innocence' in the story, as Sleeping Beauty was a symbolic representation of our standard ideals of innocence and purity."
    Te = "Rinse the apple. Eat the apple. Throw away the core."
    Ti = (reaching again) "There's a spot on this apple. Why? Plant disease? The effects of being exposed to air?"
    Fe = "My friend John loves Apples. I'll take it and bring it to him."
    Fi = (reaching) "I don't really like apples. I could have a bite, but I'd much rather have a pear. I'll just leave it here for someone else, who does like apples. I wouldn't want to waste it."

    I'm Se, Ni quite much at times, Ne, Ti, and Fi.
    I'm everything but Si xD.
    And I suppise I'm Te when it comes to get what I want and can't stop and think about anything.
    Like fighting my family, for example :(

    Go outside.
    Find the different types and ask why they do the things they do.

    You'll never truly understand it from a purely intellectual perspective. If you really want to understand it deal with unbalanced types for a while.

    You'll never get it until you do this.

    and I do mean never.
