    I was told by someone watching my youtube videos thaty they don't think I am MBTI - INFJ, but the Socionics INFj. So I am responding to TheoStuss on YouTube discussing Fi vs. Fe to determine if I am MBTI INFJ (Ni/Fe/Ti/Se or Socionics INFj Fi/Ne/Ti/Se. So, I thought in case it brings up anything to discuss here, I'd share it:

    It is known that MBTI's dichotomy theory (as usually understood at the present time) when applied to stereotypical INTP behaviour, leads to holes in understanding which do not appear to be inherent in the system.

    Take for example such common characteristics in the INTP personality as the aloofness, the precision of language, the idea oriented information, chameleon social persona, the chronic passiveness, and others.

    Is your understanding of the basic principles of MBTI theory capable of deriving not only that but possibly all of the spectrum of the INTP behaviour?


    I didn't think so.

    So what do the Ti-Ne axis do?

    First, MBTI is made on the basis of dynamical interactions between how we receive information and what we do with it (how we judge it). Taking that into account, the process always starts with outside information:

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

    As an attempt to understand the collaboration of functions, I've read several theories and made up my own theories to distinguish the difference between S and N functions. I'm gonna start with analyzing Si (Te, Fe) vs Ni (Te, Fe) functions.

    We all know that in MBTI, Si dom users divided into two types, ISTJ (Si Te Fi Ne) and ISFJ (Si Fe Ti Ne).
    While Ni dom users divided into two types, INTJ (Ni Te Fi Se) and INFJ (Ni Fe Ti Se).

    I personally don't believe the theories that said Si recollected past memories and live based on their memories of the past. I think both Si and Ni works like an instinc. But since Sensory functions (Si and Se) prefer concrete ideas, they will rely more on realistic situations. This is of course different with iNtuitive functions who prefers abstract ideas and are more flexible.

    Let say that there are four kindergarten students. They are ISTJ, ISFJ, INTJ, and INFJ.

    Just trying to clarify my own understanding by writing this up. Why not share it with you guys? There are some dialogues included that could shed some light on the behavior of these stereotypes. Please point out if there are some contradictions or inaccurate stuff.

    Extraverted sensing
    (Se) is a perceiving function and therefore extraverted sensors perceive more than they judge. They are laid-back, because as perceivers they would rather take one day at a time and go with the flow. Extraverted sensors are spontaneous and they would rather adapt to their environment than control it. They dislike following plans and making promises. Extraverted sensors enjoy experiences and they are sensual. They enjoy movement and interaction with their surroundings, without physical activity they feel bored. They like to touch things and they have keen senses. They enjoy tasty foods, great wines, sunbathing, night clubs and physical comforts. They live in the moment and they are good ...

    I never considered how people review their results from testing, since tests sometimes are ineffective. But I learned some disturbing news on how some people are getting their type results.

    We all should know by now that each type dominates with a certain function. Jung and Myers-Briggs pair types by mutual dominant function, i.e. INJ = Ni, ETJ = Te, ITP = Ti, etc. There is commonality among these pairings. Even enthusiasts that do you refer to the function process such as Kroeger and the Tiegers recognized that types have a certain hierarchy of function, i.e., INTJ = N-T-F-S, ISTP = T-S-N=F, etc. What I learned this weekend is that some people are claiming to be a type by what I consider default or in title only.

    When I test, I consistently show a preference for "I" over "E" and "T" over "F". Not only is it consistent, but well pronounced in preference. My S/N are too close to call sometimes, but S is generally ...
