    An update on my introversion

    I hardly visit this forum anymore, but I popped in here because I was extremely bored. It got me thinking how far I've come in self development since I used to check this place regularly. Then, I was trying to diagnose myself as some type to combat some weird introverted form of an...

    Psilocybin and Openness

    I don't really have much to say on this, but I thought I'd drop this here. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21956378 EDIT: Complete link: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3537171/

    Has anyone gotten over the arbitrarity of motivations?

    Sorry if there's a thread on this already.* Have you noticed how arbitrary everything is? I'm not merely trying to express how no atomic truth makes everything... Wait I might have to explain atomic truth. You've probably come across a similar idea in your thoughts, I have no idea of...

    Ambiverts and equal personal relation.

    Preface: An ambivert is someone who displays qualities of an introvert and extrovert nearly equally to the point of no clear distinction (Which Jung observed as well. Basically you just have to look closer at the motivations). The people who I'd say seem to be nearly indistinguishable when...

    I've become more extroverted. Thought? Help?

    This deals with introversion/extroversion, but I didn't want to categorize it as MBTI & Typology because I'm not really giving information, just looking for more casual discussion. (In case this was in question) This is something that I've become more aware of over the past couple...

    Intuitive forum

    I don't currently have the means to start/maintain this ATM, BUT, as a concept, I think having and a forum for intuitives in general might be beneficial. It would probably have the effect of redirecting people who are unsure of their judgement functions to pile into that forum (which would...

    A question for thinkers.

    If you want to skip preface stuff, then skip ahead until you see this kind of thing: ************* Again, I've run into a bit of a road block in my coming to understand function dynamics. That is, when I use Ti, generally, it's because feeling called for it. The most intense of these...

    TiPe and novelty

    I've hit a speed bump on my progress to understanding the subjective experience of functions. I have a basic understanding of Ti. It's your motivation for having a personal understanding of something. Which can be confused with Ni, but Ni doesn't "want" to form a jigsaw puzzle out of the world...

    Everything is subjective- can't we have true objectivity?

    I'll read more on this later, but for now here's my uneducated mindspill- Everything is subjective, but how? My thought process is that there may be a reality, but the only relationship we can be aware of is whatever our amalgamation of senses and reason tells us. However, since these...

    nonsensical function combos

    Perhaps to better understand the roles or just for novelty, I tried thinking of of what types made of function orders that went against the theory. So, perhaps to help better understand the roles or just for novelty, I decided to post them. TiNi: Because this type's dominant function is...

    pervasive memes

    Something that's been brought to my attention from my attention is that there are small, ideas, mental processes that seem to be memetic (possibly a common solitary development? not necessarily spreading) but you don't really notice until you're looking for them. I'll give you an example or two...

    What is boring and repetitious and deserves "newness"?

    The title includes kind of what I want to express, but I'm not sure exactly what that is so I'll reserve a final judgement until maybe I DO know what I want to express. ANYWAYS I was thinking, or recognizing how boring a lot of things are because they all hold patterns that no one ever DARES...

    What are your dream living conditions?

    What comforts, leisurely things would you like to ideally acquire/maintain? If you want to just list material possessions that's fine, but I'm emphasizing general living conditions. Me: A smallish house in one of the drier and rockier parts of Texas surrounded by orange plateaus and 1 foot...

    Wanting to Pioneer and Perfect just for the Sake of It

    There's been a trend I've noticed with myself and that is that I tend to want to get into an area just to pioneer and perfect it. For example, I've been considering getting into game development/design just to make something that irons out all of the kinks out of what's already released. I've...

    Sensing and Memory

    Something I've noticed being accredited to Si is specific recollections, and my claim is we should really assign this trait more to *extroverted* sensing or maybe just "sensing". For evidence: My Se dom relative, as I've talked about briefly in another thread, remembers actual details like...

    Jungian Based Typology Empirical Roundup

    So, I've come to a conclusion (yeah I know) to make a mega-thread of sorts that "rounds up" evidence that gives or takes credence to Jungian based typology. Here's why: I've been thinking about the functions and dichotomies presented by Jung and Myers-Briggs and whether or not I should give...

    personifying natural things/processes

    This is something that has bothered me a bit. That being: people personify things/processes that aren't persons to help make the explaining process of things/occurrences smoother and more intuitive. While the latter part of this is nice, I'd like to find a way to not lose precision in the...

    Small Function(s) Specific "Quirks"

    I had an idea. One of those kinda cool, kinda helpful ones y'know? You know! Any ways, the idea is to note any little "quirks" that you've only seen from one type that shows the use of that function, however not direct like, Ti makes logic and Ne is silly :P. Not a description of the...

    Is dom/inf the only oppositional dynamic?

    I was wondering. With dom/inf there's an OBVIOUS conflict. Our dominant is like our favorite tool that we were handed to when we started developing out type and we use it with everything we can. Our inferior however is like one of your children. But it's the scary one. You take care...

    Pure O (OCD) anyone?

    Have anyone of you experienced this? It has got to be the most annoying thing. Y'know how bipolar disorder will take you're mood high and push it right back down? It's like that but instead of acting directly with mood it works with my certainty. Here's the process: A wild intrusive...

    How well do you remember lyrics?

    Just wondering. Me, historically- not well. Lately some of the songs I've been listening to for years have started to "click" lyrically. Now I'm doing better. Its super important to me that I know about this from all of you. If you come across this thread, read to this- this- or even this...

    MBTI and thoughts survey

    What additional function would you like to have in your stack?

    I mean, we all use all the functions anyway, but if you could have a fifth that's in your "preferences" as well as all the other ones, which would it be and why? I'll start As an INTP, I'd pluck all my hair off multiple times over to have Se. It must be so fun. I mean, how cool would it be...

    Anyone grow any feelings?

    So, recently (over the past few months) I've experienced a genesis of sorts of feelings, in general after thinking long and hard after carrying the naive notion that emotions had no place in a squeaky clean rational mind of mine. This was because I thought that emotions clouded my perception and...

    Does anyone else think in the form of conversations?

    I've become increasingly aware that my thoughts might not be like other peoples thoughts. As the title suggests, a lot of my thoughts are in the form of a discussion with a specific person in my life (changes depend on what I'm thinking). It's like I'm constantly making arguments that don't...
