    Since I decided to read Jung's books....preemptive measure. (also, why didn't we have it already?....did we?).

    This thread is made in mind for people who are (or will be) studying Jungian psychology, whether cognitive function or other related material.



    Discussions, questions, dissections are most invited here; as much as explanations, answers, and ....everything else that's in your mind regarding Carl Gustav Jung's writings.

    Here's a starter for twelve.

    Explain why Jung states the functional order of INFJs to be

    Ni-Fe-Te-Se

    Yet we now use

    Ni-Fe-Ti-Se

    First person to come up with a complete line of reasoning earns a penguin.

    Hmmmm! *uses attempt as pre-learning*

    -Wiki, including the citation needed part-. (cheating?)

    From what I can discern I would say Jung originally intended the supporting functions (that is, the 2nd-4th function) to oppose the dominant function's influence.

    Currently we use Ti instead of Te as to claim more balance (a repeating cycle of I-E-I-E processing; which is also why Jungian don't use I-I-E-E)
    Basically it's for achieving a balanced state, only current beliefs are more balanced than early ones?

    Oh, also; for those seeking *ahem* free sources... how about Torrent?
    (mods : do edit my post if it's forbidden)
