    I wanted to share this off of Vicky Jo's site - INFJ or INFP? a closer look
    Regardless of this being shared to INFJs or INFPs.... it's good reasoning for all.
    Just wanted to share.

    Please STOP

    "If you have fallen into the habit of saying things like, "I'm an N," and "She's an S," or "I'm an F" and "He's a T," -- I beg you to stop. This sort of talk is terribly damaging. It implies we are one-sided, and completely misses the boat about the richness of type. No wonder people are afraid type may be used to "pigeonhole" them -- language like this perpetrates limitation, not freedom.

    Equally as bad are those who claim, "I have no S," or a sweeping lack of some other function. While the type codes mention only two function letters, the other two letters are implicit in that code, and all 8 functions are ultimately available. As stated previously, we all possess and ...

    "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

    I recently discovered this interesting article, written by Breanne in her blog at the THE MBTI BLOG which has many information relating to the MBTI . The following are the top 10 misconception of the MBTI....

    Misconception #1: The MBTI is a personality test.
    The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® is an indicator (or assessment), not a test. The term test assumes that there is a right or wrong answer, or the opportunity to pass or fail. There is no right or wrong personality type. In addition, there is no one best personality type.

    Misconception #2: I took the Myers-Briggs online last night for free.
    No, you didn’t. Unfortunately you were deceived by someone pretending to have a free version of the MBTI. If you look closely you will see that the assessment often calls itself “MBTI-like” or a “Jungian” assessment. This is not the MBTI! Why does this matter? The real MBTI has been around for 60 years and has been extensively researched and continuously

    An age-old question which most people have pondered at some point in their lives is "why are we the way we are"? Unfortunately, I can't clue you in on the answer to that question in a really authoritative way, but I can tell you about work that has been done to determine how people's Personality Types are developed.

    The more recent studies done around Temperament suggest that we are each born with our temperaments intact. Efforts are being made to prove this.

    W. Harold Grant did a lot of work with Jung's theories, and concluded that Jung believed that Personality Type has a developmental process which can be observed through an individual's life. The early phases of our lives help determine the dominance ordering of the four functions (Sensing, Intuition, Thinking and Feeling), and the development of our dominant and auxiliary functions. The later phases help us develop our tertiary and inferior functions.

    Let's take a look at Grant's ...
