It’s okay to live this way, breaking down, getting hurt and looking back at the past. I will live. I am living like this. Me. Us.”
Cognitive Functions

The functions are a bit difficult to understand sometimes, and I’ve been researching this a bit, so I thought I might help. One basic word to describe the thing for easy reference, followed by a more detailed description. If any more information or clarification is requested, I will do my best to answer. If this is well-liked, I can do more like these in the same format for the different types. Now, in alphabetical order, the functions:

Fe: Harmony

Extraverted feeling looks at the feels of others in the moment and how they relate to each other. The general happiness of everyone nearby is a concern, and the lack thereof is uncomfortable. It keeps tabs on who is nice and helpful, who is not, and while keeping a read on the moment keeps very good tabs on the roles people play, leader or follower, aggressor or victim. They are very good at changing these feels in the form of helping others. When a type relies heavily on Fe, they are adept at emotional manipulation and counseling, but can often feel used themselves as it is not often reciprocated. They can pull some Jedi mind tricks. People gravitate towards them, and they hold a lot of influence over their environment. It’s a powerful skill. Think Gandhi or Hitler or Obi Wan.

Fi: Morality

Introverted feeling focuses heavily on the feelings and beliefs of the user, and compares outside information to them to form a sense of right and wrong. Fi forges infinitely deep bonds and relationships, but quite slowly and generally infrequently. Their emotions are concentrated and passionate. They make great poets and altruists, needing to express themselves on the world around them. They hide their fear or sadness or joy, great for warriors, politicians, or Vulcans. You want an Fe user to rally your troops, but an Fi user to be your spy or diplomat. Unfortunately, Fi is melancholic. They get really stuck on upset emotions, and their obsession with black and white morality makes them very stubborn and preferring ignorant bliss to new information that disrupts it.

Ne: Possibilities

Extraverted intuition is remarkably creative. It quickly generates and identifies many ideas, thoughts, and perspectives, and finds connections between them. It weaves a web in an instant, and forgets it shortly after. It’s basically brainstorming. It’s useful in improv, engineering, debating, and most creative activities. In one minute, how many uses can you find for a sheet of paper? They don’t have to be great ideas. This is basically a measure of Ne. It’s lightning fast at creating mediocre information, a fantastically powerful tool used in conjunction with other things, but not great on its own. It needs a little to go on, but it can get a lot done with it. xNTPs pair it with Ti to analyze and synthesize theories in any situation.

Ni: Predictions

Introverted intuition is very mystic. It sees far into the future, but only in one direction. It draws from outside information, the current situation, and the essence of past memories to form a very good idea of how things will turn out. It relies on inductive reasoning. A typically leads to B, B typically leads to C. If A happens, C will happen. There is a small room for error with each step, and they think many steps ahead, so it builds up, but they have a pretty good success rate. xNFJs use it to understand how others feel, and xNTJs use it for cunning strategies. They cling onto one idea, and explore all the facets thereof. While Ne is a spiderweb, Ni is a large underground tunnel with a few offshoots. When very developed, the user will understand reality might not fit their very firm beliefs of how things will turn out - but they will have a back-up plan. They must account for all variables for it to work.

Se: Observation

Extraverted sensing concerns itself with the world around it in the moment, how things look and taste and feel and smell and hear. It’s very dominant in society, or at least it seems that way. Decoration, athleticism, appearance, are all expressions of Se. It has a more obvious effect to the end of Fe. They are the life of the party. They see things around them and just go for it. It’s very short term and immediate, but this is not to say it is immature. While suddenly wanting to go to an amusement park or get ice cream as you drive by such an establishment would be a telltale sign of an Se user, they also have an eye for nice clothes or luxurious trips. If you can clear your mind of everything but fine dining and breathing, you might prefer extraverted sensing.

Si: Memorization

Introverted sensing deals with the real, physical details not of the world in the present, but in the past. It stores information for later use. It’s a hard drive. Types that have Si as a higher up function would have very good memories. It is a double-edged sword, however. It can consistently utilize information it is fed, but it also expects it. It finds comfort in traditions, a regular intake of information of a specific nature, and the user would be a little uncomfortable without it. There would be massive confusion if suddenly Christmas came in July. Introverted sensing likes schedules. It works hard at a simple desk job from 9-5, organizing and storing files on all sorts of things, building simple frameworks used regularly.

Te: Efficiency

Extraverted thinking seeks control over an optimal system. It finds the proper sequence to implement a plan, and follows through. As an extraverted property, it is projected and evident in the outside world. It looks at blueprints, but then goes out and rounds up the construction workers and sees the building erected. It lives for charts and graphs. Although not as deep and effective of a problem solver as its introverted equivalent, it is incredible at executing solutions. A well-defined goal is set, a straightforward plan is constructed, and the final product is brought to fruition. It’s very organized, shallow, and narrow-minded. This is a very good thing in practice. Step one is all that matters, then step two, etc.

Ti: Logic

Introverted thinking is all about logical reasoning, whether it be deductive, inductive, or abductive. If X, then Y. When used to its fullest, it’s more like X could lead to Y, A, or, if B is C, N. It thoroughly examines relations between things, between systems. It constructs an expansive internal framework by connecting such small details between small things or between large systems. How is a bicycle like a puppy? Both move quickly on a road, and if submerged in lava, would no longer function properly. Remarkably rational, it can identify similarities, differences, problems or solutions in any circumstance. The focus is to construct perfect, simple systems. It seeks understanding, with potentially massive input for minimal output. (This perfectionist attitude stems from one of laziness. I spent an hour writing a program to solve a ten minute math assignment. But it could theoretically be adapted for limitless problems, so I stand by my decision.)

Plant of the Day

Monday 24 August 2015

A cheerful yellow border uses the contrast of flower forms for this plant association. The circular flowers of Rudbeckia hirta ‘Indian Summer’ (black-eyed Susan) an erect biennial/short-lived perennial grown from seed contrast with the foamy yellow flowers of the herbaceous perennial Solidago 'Goldenmosa’ (golden rod). The latter is a traditional border plant, but old varieties were often tall and invasive compared with this modern compact hybrid. This variety has sprays of golden mimosa-like flowers that last throughout late summer and early autumn on stems strong enough to stand without support. Both plants have received the Royal Horticultural Society Award of Garden Merit (AGM).
