The Cognitive Functions Of Each Myers Briggs Type
Cienna Stuhl

I am an INFP, but it took me a couple of years to figure out my type. The only way I finally nailed it down was by reading an article by Heidi Priebe on cognitive functions. The Myers-Briggs letters are a description of how your functions manifest themselves and you use your functions in order from Dominant to Auxiliary, Tertiary and finally, Inferior. Below is each type with their functions, the order of the functions and the descriptions from the article of how the types will act based upon the order of their functions.

ENFP: Ne - Fi – Te – Si

Extroverted Intuition (Ne): Generates new possibilities, synthesizes abstract ideas and picks up on connections in the external environment. Is capable of entertaining multiple contradictory ideas simultaneously as it sees almost every side to every situation. It is predominantly a future-oriented function that examines all the possibilities of what could happen next.

People who lead with extroverted intuition are usually excitable, entreprenurial and highly creative. They intrinsically enjoy debating ideas, exploring various interests and they view almost everything in life as a challenge. They are constantly thinking about what to do or experience next, but have a difficult time sticking with just one idea or plan long

Introverted Feeling (Fi): Is the in-depth analysis of emotional processes and morality. It seeks to break down emotions to their core and understand them as wholly as possible. It also develops a strong internal system of right and wrong, which the Fi user employs to make decisions. Introverted feeling searches for the deeper meaning behind absolutely everything. Introverted feelers are highly aware of and in touch with their own emotions, and when they put themselves in the shoes of others, they can often feel their pain or joy on a personal level.

Extroverted Thinking (Te): Seeks to impose order on the external environment as efficiently and logically as possible. it values productivity above all else and is a results-based, action-oriented function. It naturally implements concrete plans for accomplishing goals and is quick to make decisions.

Introverted Sensing (Si): Is a detail-oriented, information storage function. It takes note of facts, events, and occurrences exactly as they happen and categorizes them, somewhat like an internal filing system. It is a past-oriented function that dwells predominantly on what has been and it often gives way to nostalgia.

Introverted feelers are highly aware of and in touch with their own emotions, and when they put themselves in the shoes of others, they can often feel their pain or joy on a personal level.

People who lead with introverted feeling are compassionate, analytical and often highly concerned with moral issues. They are usually highly creative or artistic, and may feel as though no one else truly understands who they are deep down. Because their feelings are introverted, Fi-dominant types aren't usually comfortable expressing how they feel outwardly. They have a rich inner world that they want to guard and yet they often secretly wish that others were capable of tapping into it.

INFJ: Ni – Fe – Ti – Se

Introverted Intuition (Ni): Forms a framework of how the world works based on thorough, abstract analysis of past and current events. It aims to identify the ‘essence’ of ideas, theories, people and situations in order to fit them into a larger schema. It is a forward thinking function that seeks to identify the optimal or most likely outcome of future events.

People who lead with introverted intuition are usually intense, focused and highly perceptive of inconsistencies that arise in their external environment. They enjoy riddles, puzzles and wordplay. They often experience ‘hunches’ or ‘aha’ moments that they may identify as epiphanies. Their intense foresight is a product of their future-oriented introverted intuition subtly pairing with their inferior extroverted sensing.

Extroverted feeling (Fe): Is highly concerned with maintaining social norms and keeping the peace. It is a decision-making function that strives to do what is best for the group and picks up naturally on the emotions of others. It is a mirroring function that may cause the user to have trouble deciphering their own feelings without the input of others. It requires social interaction to stay fulfilled, more so than any other function.

Introverted thinking (Ti): Is an information-gathering function that seeks to form a framework for how the world works on a concrete, tangible level. It is adept at understanding systems and naturally notices inconsistencies within them. It seeks a thorough understanding of how things work – it wants to deconstruct things to look at the individual parts and see how things function as a whole.

Extroverted sensing (Se): Is focused on taking in the world as it exists in the present moment. It is highly in tune with the sights, smells, sounds and general physical stimulus that surrounds it. It lives and thrives in the moment, more so than any other function.

People who lead with extroverted feeling are highly reactive to the feelings of others.

Dominant extroverted thinkers may come across as bossy or opinionated to those who lack the function, but in reality they are simply pointing out what they believe to be the most efficient course of action for everyone involved.

Introverted thinking seeks a thorough understanding of how things work – it wants to deconstruct things to look at the individual parts and see how things function as a whole.

People who lead with introverted thinking are logical, systematic and objective to a fault. They enjoy finding ‘short-cuts’ that increase efficiency within a given system. Ti-dominants are often heavily introverted, as they take a great deal of time to understand how things work before they feel comfortable sharing or acting on their knowledge.

A Tribute To The Lonely Hispanic

In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, I’d like to share a few thoughts about being Hispanic in a country where it’s hard to be Hispanic.

Veronika Maldonado

Just a little background information; my dad was born in Mexico, came to the U.S. as a newborn and became a citizen when he was 25 years old. My mom was born and raised in the U.S. as were my grandparents and great grandparents, but my great-great grandparents did migrate here from Mexico. I am proud to classify myself as Hispanic but there are times when I feel like I’m living a double life and I don’t fit into either one.

An Atlanta Weekend

A New Yorker's quick weekend in Atlanta.

JMackeazy

On a weekend visit to Atlanta, I had to adjust to people being personable and congenial to me. Although I had lived in the South before, I had to get reacquainted with southern hospitality due to visiting from Brooklyn. Atlanta Uber drivers are very down to earth, offer snacks, and provide great genuine conversations. The opposite is the lay of the land from Brooklyn Uber drivers. The southern hospitality is provided not only from the Uber drivers, but restaurant servers, cashiers, or random people giving suggestions. Brooklyn is a dope and unique place to live, but short on the warmth more often than not.
