    One of the main reasons people further expand or redefine the system is because the ‘old’ definitions are insufficient to help everyone find a useful solution. Without a useful solution, you can’t do anything useful.

    I recently found an ‘influencer’ and author who distinguishes between cognitive ‘predisposition’ and preference, rather than assume they are the same. The idea is that your most preferred function may not be the ‘true’ dominant function, and this might be due to early adverse experiences. The preferred function is not a constant however.

    Depending partly on where the preferred function ‘sits’ in relation to the dominant (though it is not a straightforward 1-8 hierarchy like the John Beebe model), this could manifest as a genuine attempt at mastery or may just replicate the preferred function in a more superficial ‘look a like’ way.

    Also the functions are not used entirely in a ‘pure’ form in practice. In addition to ‘perceiving’ functions being twinned with ‘judging’ functions as per usual, they each have a bit of other functions of the same mode thrown in to varying degrees. Thus warning, heresy alert Ti often uses Fi to help discern emotional investment and thus cognitive bias, Se uses Si to recognise objects in the environment, Ni uses Si to discern abstract trends developing over time (they can’t just use Se otherwise they’d have to constantly rebuild patterns from scratch in the present).

    I could say loads more about it but suffice to say it I find it to be a much more flexible and realistic-sounding interpretation than anything else I’ve encountered.

    I appreciate this topic because I recently chose to leave a certain Myers Briggs Facebook group because there were so many people arguing and saying someone (me too once) of being different types. Plus people behaved so stubbornly regarding what each type is like. You know, this type is always in your face, this type is close-minded, this type is never happy…It seemed like these commenters were inadvertently describing themselves! So for self-care I left that. I enjoy your intuitive awakening fb group though so thank you for that!
