  1. Chiastic structure of function order

    I had wondered before about the structure of function order. It seems to make intuitive sense, but why? And just now I came across this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chiastic_structure The structure of the function order is clearly chiastic. The first four functions have the structure of A B...
  2. Typology obsessiveness

    Does anyone else have an obsession with typology? If you don't, I guess you can still respond in terms of other obsessions you have, if you're an obsession prone person. I've been obsessed with typology for years - almost for as long as I've known about typology at all. I generally don't mind...
  3. Mergings and psychosis

    Psychosis is a higher state of existence. Yes, that is correct. You start off basic then get full on then extend your boundaries beyond where you were. It goes, 1 2 3 4 and I'm out the door. Psychosis is like... transcendental experience. To transcend means to see beyond the boundaries of...
  4. What job should I get?

    So I need help deciding on a career path. I have a maths degree. I got a maths degree because it was easy for me to do, I wanted to get a degree, and I had hopes that it would turn into something like environmental modelling or something along those lines, because basically: I want a job that...
  5. Experiential proof/disproof of type

    So, I'm not sure if I've just proved or disproved (or neither) that type is real. Either way, I think I've added some clarity to the understanding of how type manifests. So, basically, this is an introspection based experiment that I carried out, and which anyone can try to replicate and see if...
  6. Give it to me straight, doc

    My identity is interlinked with INTPforum. I have a simultanouelsy grandiose and modest perception of myself. I need to know how special I am. What effect do I have in the grand scheme of things. I need a realistic appraisal. None of this "we're all special" and none of this...
  7. Re-defining Utilitarianism

    Utilitarianism is defined as the belief that the best action is that which maximises happiness, however it also includes a definition of happiness: happiness is that which feels good. So we have a subtly non-circular definition here: good is that which feels good. So, what utilitarianism...
  8. Strange occurrence in Facebook's "People you may know"

    So, I know someone who has a facebook. On their facebook they have only one friend, and as far as I know the only details they have in there are their name and date of birth. Now, in their "people you may know" list, facebook has included all kinds of people that they know. Family, work...
  9. Profit seekers

    Being rudely surprised by ads coming up on youtube has reminded me of something important. Humans, a good many of them any way, are obsessed with the attainment of profit. Advertisements, with the occassional exception of an informative one, do nothing to advance mankind in anyway. We could...
  10. It seems I'm rejecting my Se

    I seem lately as though I am beginning to reject my Se. I am not including the Se element in my posts as often as I used to, I am not listening to Se dominant music and enjoying it like I used to, and I am becoming very negative towards things like alcohol and smoking which I tend to enjoy...
  11. Cognition outside of the 8 cognitive functions?

    Since being able to identify which cognitive function I am using at a given time, I have been quite shocked to find out that, pretty much all the time, I am using one of the 8 functions. This leads me to ask the question: What kinds of cognition can not be put under the banner of one of the 8...
  12. Worthy Life Goals?

    I'm constantly tortured by the fact that, to all reasonable measure, I fail to live up to my own potential. I know that there is so much I could be doing and could have already done, I know this both intellectually and I feel my distance from it, but as much as I want to think about it, I am at...
  13. Appearance of Function Order

    So we know there are 4 functions - 2 rational, T and F, and 2 irrational, S and N. So, opposing functions share a common attitude to rationality. Then, they appear in a person in an order: dominant -> auxiliary -> tertiary -> inferior (-> others?) With auxiliary opposing dominant in...
  14. Variation on Plato's Divided Line and the 4 Functions

    I have a long time ago noticed a similarity between Plato's divided line and the four functions (N, S, F, T). The line goes like this | Intelligence/Dialectic | Mathematical reasoning | Belief | Illusion Now, there is a certain aspect of this which makes it so that the higher portion is...

  19. Some issues I have with Schizophrenia Diagnosis

    So, pretty much all of the Schizophrenia diagnostic criteria I have seen seem to be really, really vague. Based on the definitions, it seemed to me that Schizophrenia was this thing which is actually based on quite standard experiences, however it has occurred to me that actually there may be an...

  21. The Moral Debate: Do Greatness and/or Badness exist?

    [bringing the debate here] Primary axiom: goodness exists in various degrees. Proof: assume the contrary, then all actions are equally preferable, thus we may assume that goodness exists is true, lest all things be true, in which case it is also true anyway [is there a flaw in that...
  22. What ACTUAL benefits has science gotten us?

    Like, I'll make some revolutionary science theory if you guys want, but what is the point of that exactly? Surely I do just as much good for the world sitting in my room drinking bourbon and smoking? :confused:
  23. Another Two Dreams

    I had another two dreams: In the first, AnimeKitty prevented the uprise of the Dark Lord Satan, stopping him from getting to the throne. Sinny91 was there as well. I think Satan is now in some kind of box and she is guarding it. The world is saved once again! Second dream: Someone...

  30. Jung's Four Archetypes

    There's probably a thread on this already, but oh well haha, there's quite a lot of repetition on MBTI threads. Am I INTP, ENTP, INFJ etc. So, what do you all think about Jung's archetypes of the Self, Shadow, Anima/Animus and Persona? I have some thoughts that I'll share a bit later, but...
  31. Socionics vs MBTI

    For those not in the "know" Now, the idea is thus. Socionics and MBTI do not agree about what functions go to what type, in particular in the case of introverts. But there is really no disagreement, it's just that the function definitions are different. See, when Jung refers to the...
  32. Haters are, quite simply, going to hate.

    There are those in life who wish to see you suffer, to see you fail. Nothing brings them more pleasure than to see others fall, especially if by their hand. Why are they like this? I could speculate endlessly as to the insecurities which would give rise to such a character, but I am sure it has...
  33. Excuse me?

    Well, since you've decided now to track me down on okcupid and make a fake profile just to talk to me I guess I'll make a brief comeback. Yes members of this trollfest of a forum sent me crazy. Yes my first girlfriend broke up with me. Yes I dropped out of university. Yes I was hospitalised for...

  35. Typing by language/text

    Typing should hypothetically be doable to a quite accurate degree by analysing a typical sample of text created by someone. This is assuming language production comes from extroverted judgement. Is the language - qualitative/summarising or quantitative/descriptive (P vs J) -...

    Yeah, just don't show up. You're not actually being pressured, it's fine to not enjoy them. No one will be offended if you don't go.
  46. The ego

    " The ego acts according to the reality principle; i.e. it seeks to please the id’s drive in realistic ways that will benefit in the long term rather than bringing grief.[13] At the same time, Freud concedes that as the ego "attempts to mediate between id and reality, it is often obliged to...

  49. 4th dichotomy is wrong

    So I've seen a criticism brought up that MBTI got the J/P dichotomy wrong, since then you have dominant judging Ps and that makes no sense. I couldn't see the logic behind such an argument, as it seemed like a mere definitional problem that could easily be overlooked, however I currently do not...
  50. Formally establishing an isomorphism between mojos U powers and types U cognitive functions

    Place the naturally corresponding in correspondence. Such a map is one to one onto, and given any two types or mojos, their difference in cognition maps to corresponding functional differences. Thus they are isomorphic, Q.E.D. Has anyone anything to add? Note that I am not suggesting an...
