    1st World Problems

    Whether your suffering is physical or psychological, it's still suffering. Some life situations are objectively more unpleasant than others: having AIDS, starvation, being abused, losing family members or friends. Agree that "1st world problems" meme is stupid. People shouldn't try to minimize...

    I need a job

    Unfortunately, it's really late in the game now. Already mid-June. It's going to be hard to find anything. That said, I would largely disagree with the whole "do sh*t jobs to learn about life." It's just suffering and pain, neither of which are good for you in and of themselves. What I mean is...

    Great career advice

    There are significant problems with this video. Why? First of all, he repeats the fallacy that there is a so-called "skills gap." This idea has been debunked. http://www.labornotes.org/2014/01/skills-gap-convenient-myth It's far from a good idea to learn a trade in my opinion. First of...

    Computer/internet stuff

    Did you already buy the laptop? What will you be using it for? If you find computers easy to deal with and don't mind messing around with them, install Ubuntu. It's free. It's lightweight. It's user-friendly enough. It's high-performing. If you have any interest at all in programming or...

    This is exactly what I have observed. I'm not an expert on MBTI but I do aspire to getting better at typing people. The difference between INTP and ENTP is simply Ti vs Ne in a nutshell. Were you outgoing or withdrawn as a kid? Do you get a high off of being the center of attention and...

    Ambiversion/Ambiverts Do Not Exist

    Ambiversion/Ambiverts Do Not Exist

    This whole thing started with someone coming on here and saying they wanted to alter the existing categories. I said that ambiversion was not possible. And I meant it. After all this investigation, it's clear that Jung thought the only ambiverts were those who had a primitive mentality. Think...

    Ambiversion/Ambiverts Do Not Exist

    Actually it's really not clear to me why Jung said that the normal man could be influenced as much from within as from without when this obviously flies in the face of everything else in PT. You dismiss the fact that Jung never discussed the "normal man" in the context of the functions as...

    Ambiversion/Ambiverts Do Not Exist

    reckful the bottom line here is that if you believe exclusively in the dichotomies, then yes ambiversion is both theoretically and empirically possible and common. But if you believe in the functions as most people do then no, sorry, ambiversion is not possible. I'm not sure why you question my...

    Ambiversion/Ambiverts Do Not Exist

    I would add it's the interplay between the dominant and inferior that really defines most of our thoughts and behavior. We're just not as aware of the inferior b/c when it takes hold we all become pretty stupid and primitive so field of awareness both internal and external diminishes greatly.

    True. Right. This is no way shape or form proof or support for your opinion that it is possible for someone to be equally introverted or extraverted. It's true Jung talked about introversion and extraversion. It's true that each of the 8 types are varieties of introverts or extraverts. None of...

    Your interpretation reckful, but you're wrong. You're taking that one line and extrapolating it to mean Jung thought most people's top two functions were equally well-developed. You're ignoring the fact that there is no such thing as introversion and extraversion, only introverted and...

    I'm an ENTP

    Nowhere in the foundational works is there any mention of an ambivert. I know it's a popular postulate of many, but the fact is that there's no theoretical basis for it whatsoever. A lot of ENTPs I've seen in forum posts like to call themselves a mix of these two types, but actually they're just...

    He was talking about me. What I said wasn't even precisely worded. I meant the "most introspective extravert." Could be ENTJ. The MBTI data suggests otherwise though. If their research is correct in that ENTJs are less common than ENTPs in the general population, then it would appear that...

    I am taking everyone's opinion into account. I think what people see on here is my love of debating and arguing.

    I took the test. I know the difference between sociotypes and MBTI. Socionics has this thing called "sub-types" so there are two types of INTPs: Ti-INTP and Ne-INTP. Check out the link I posted before or just google it. Same thing applies to ENTPs: Ne-ENTP and Ti-ENTP. It just means that in one...

    Jung: Types can be divided into subtypes...what are the implications?

    Can you please reference the passage where he says this? But according to socionics, and I agree with their system b/c I arrived at the same conclusion independently, There are 16 "types" but each type is a small Gaussian where some people have a well-developed aux, and others do not. No he...

    Jung: Types can be divided into subtypes...what are the implications?

    Basically comes down to whether or not the tertiary has the same orientation as the dominant or not. From my standpoint, it's not much of an issue since the tertiary is also largely unconscious, so in practice it kind of gets glued together with the inferior to a certain extent. That said...

    Jung: Types can be divided into subtypes...what are the implications?

    I'm not really sure what you mean. Well...I like to be strict about definitions. Keeps things clear in my head. So maybe this is all just semantics, but Jung is very absolute when it comes to separating thinking and feeling. I guess you could think about thinking principles as "values" but I...
  41. Inquisitor

    Jung: Types can be divided into subtypes...what are the implications?

    My opinion is that you're mixing up "logical principles" with "values." INTPs can be very emotional and defensive of their principles but these are thoroughly different from the values of an Fi type. Value-based judgement is along the lines of "this is good" and "this is bad." Is this "fair" and...

    Jung: Types can be divided into subtypes...what are the implications?

    TiN is intuitive and speculative, TiS is empirical and positivist, and then there is Ti (no N or S) where the individual has a weaker auxiliary. Jung is not differentiating between Ti-weak N, and Ti-weak S, but I am and so is Socionics. There's no way to be strong in both T and F. According to...

    Jung: Types can be divided into subtypes...what are the implications?

    I put the socionics description of the two subtypes up here. I have to say I agree with most of it. Notice that their Ne-type of INTP is also on the slim side when compared with the Ti-Type. So they have observed the same thing I have. The Ti-type is also more of a specialist and likely less of...

    Jung: Types can be divided into subtypes...what are the implications?

    I agree with everything you just said except for "TiF". That's definitely not one of the possible subtypes. Thinking and feeling are in direct opposition. Basically, you always have to have either TiNe or TiSe, but you can't have a sort of even balance between the two. One or the other must...

    Jung: Types can be divided into subtypes...what are the implications?

    Granted it is a very small excerpt, and it's a shame Jung did not go into it in more detail. The only reason I brought it up is because I was trying to reconcile the apparently large differences between INTPs that I work and study with on a daily basis. Almost all of my friends are INTPs or...

    Jung: Types can be divided into subtypes...what are the implications?

    Yeah thanks, I had forgotten about socionics. I remember reading that many years ago, and somehow now I come up with this insight independently. Seems like I'm on the right track. I agree with the overall description of "conceptualizer, researcher, analyst" but not so much with the little...

    Jung: Types can be divided into subtypes...what are the implications?

    Come to think of it, I actually think we would be better served with a system that preserved the original MBTI classifications, but split each type into 2 other discrete types. For example, the INTP would be split into those that have a well-developed Ne and those that do not. I am fairly...

    Jung: Types can be divided into subtypes...what are the implications?

    Possibly. I don't know as much about the enneagram. I know that INTPs sometimes identify with more than one type for example 5w4 or 5w6. Some even identify more closely with 4 or 9 than 5, but I don't put as much faith in that system. I know Jung was a genius but I'm not so sure about Riso and...

    Jung: Types can be divided into subtypes...what are the implications?

    I am now convinced that there are actually 24 types, not 16. Start with one of Jung's 8 types, then divide that into 3 types. I know what he meant now in that passage above, simply by having the opportunity to observe professors and students in my computer science department. There are Ti-Se...
