    The significance of P and J.

    I learnt this on TC a while back, and it made so much sense to me. This is too ingenious for me to explain, so I'm paraphrasing (and quoting) the incredible ENTP who laid it out so clearly :P

    Supposedly the P/J is the most important letter in typology because it dictates how the other "cognitive functions" will be used. Each person functions with a combination of 2 cognitive functions out of the 4 possible.
    1) Perceiving function with either S or N, because it takes in information.
    2) Judging function with either T or F, because it makes decisions with that information.

    Each person has one function that is extroverted, directed outwardly - handling the outward situation, ideas, things apart from the self, and one function that is introverted, directed inwardly - creating inner values and perspective, the self itself.

    Type By Default (J/P Skews Results)

    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 ...

    I found this article too.. this one is interesting. I know a lot of people are going to ask how some of these traits are good and how some of them are bad. I was a little confused too, but nevertheless, it's something to read and talk about;

    Introverts & Extroverts in Love

    Relationship Conflict Between Different Personality Types

    Personality profiles include extroverts and introverts, which are opposite ends of the spectrum of personality types. Extroverts and introverts are often attracted to one another because opposites attract but may find it difficult to build a strong relationship or marriage.
    Though relationship conflict is inevitable, resolving conflict is easier when you understand introvert and extrovert personality types. Maybe you need a personality test to determine if you're an introvert or an extrovert (online personality tests are usually easy and accurate). However, you may just need to scan through

    The Functions

    Part of the process of determining your type has to do with digging through all of your learned behaviors to see who you really are inside, beyond your own self-image.

    The standard model of functions is four of the eight, even though we use all eight functions throughout our lives. The dominant, or the first function, is the one we develop as soon as perception begins. The supportive, or second function, develops as we begin to mature (usually around the pre-teen age). Our tertiary, or third function, begins conscious development in our twenties and thirties, although you may notice that, as you are or were going through teenage years, you began to grasp the concept of your tertiary function. Some of us begin development of it consciously even in teenage years, but that is very uncommon. The last, or inferior function, is developed in the forties and fifties, but may not be developed at all, depending on how well the other functions
