    Opinions require less effort and require an individual touch. A reason to be your own person so to speak.

    when I said subjectively I meant values/beliefs/ideas. not opinions.

    Can the same be said about Thinkers, then? That they too are feelers but their feeling tends to the ideals established as most reasonable through Thinking? Now, what if the Thinking or Feelings is flawed? You see where this will lead, don't you?

    I am going to venture to say that this may holds true for people who have a T and F function close together, like the INTJ (iN Te Fi...) and the ISFJ (Si Fe Ti...) and who have been able to develop their tertiary functions to at certain level. If the tertiary and the lower functions are repressed and ignored, then that's going to get them into all sorts of trouble. It's like Jung said, I guess, "Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate."

    I am not going to lie... One of the principal reasons I love being Introverted is that I am naturally introspective. Actually, I am not sure this is a product of introversion generally or if it is because I am a Si dominant person and since Si is influenced by the environment into which it was born and raised... Maybe it is because I am An Introverted Perceiver.

    For me, that's good. One should never be wishy-washy. Why live life in such a mediocre fashion? One should have convictions AND have the ability to reevaluate those convictions when new information/data presents itself.

    What do you mean by "dimensions of personality"?

    Yes, well that is the goal of personal growth, isn't? To strike a balance. I am so weary of people who don't consider personal growth crucial.

    Want to know a secret? If you are having trouble figuring someone out, this is what you should do... wait, if I tell you, it wouldn't be a secret.

    What I think? You forget that I am a Feeler!? Besides... isn't speaking via the internet enough "hiding and seeking"?

    I happen to think that a person would be best equipped to figure out his/her own leading cognitive function IF he/she is completely honest with him/herself.

    See you later.

    Yes! This is a source of confusion for people who are trying to type themselves using MBTI!

    Sometimes I just summarize by saying "Myers and Brigg just didn't read enough Jung!"

    Leaving MBTI aside for a moment: What do you think is your dominant cognitive function? Intuition or Thinking? And is it I or E?

    I noticed you have a thread on INTJ vs INTP and not being able to decide your type. Instead of tying to type yourself by behavioural characteristics which can be influenced by your environment, there is a MUCH simpler way to figure out if you are INTJ or INTP.

    INTPs have Ti as their leading function and Fe as the inferior function

    INTJs have iN as their dominant function and Se as the inferior.

    These two types manifest themselves in such different ways that I always wonder how people can't decide between the two. INTJs and INTPs are two completely different personalities!

    Have you read Jung's description of each of the cognitive functions? Which one seems to be your dominant process?

    You should read Volume 6 in its entirety.

    Are you talking about his later work such as his writings on spirituality and alchemy?

    I got really interested in Jung a few years back but didn't have the time to really explore his work. I read excepts here and found compilations of things there and so forth. When I saw the complete works, I got it immediately! I don't know when I will read every page, but I started with Volume 6: Psychological Types as soon as the download ended.

    Thesis is on Porous Media Compressed Air Energy Storage.

    So how much of Jung have you read? I got this for myself recently.

    Can't get enough of it. The only thing holding me back from really devouring it is my thesis. :-/

    You must really be interested in Jung's and Beebe's work. I really enjoy Jung... Beebee? Not so much.

    I think that's a very good analysis. Good post.
