    Nice!

    Edit: Though, according to this, I'm an INFP. My answers were most Fi > Fe > Ti > Te. Seems possible that dominant perception functions should be considered. My Ni 'just knows' - the same that is attributed to Fi. My Se takes a look at the big picture - the same as attributed to Te. Interesting proof of how our functions overlap.

    I had a similar experience. My first instinct was a vague sense of "it will be right" (Fi), then I thought about all the various practical, but subjective, criteria I considered when purchasing a home years ago (Ti), but realized the final decision always comes down to considerations of how it all played into everyone's various needs (Fe).

    I agree that the "it will be right" feeling is really more an Ni perceptual experience. That feeling is about my level of peace or comfort with a place, not a strong, "this is it, no more discussion" kind of judgment. Ti definitely has a place in the decision making, but is really more of a supporting role. It provides after-the-fact justification for the decision that gets made. In the end analysis, Fe is the decision making king for me.

    I also did the perception exercise from the previous month's newsletter. My results were less consistent with type there.




    *spoiler*




    I didn't have any answers that seemed Ni as they described the Ni experience. My answers were about sensation, the imagined cool feel of the water on my skin or the warm colors of the sky, or imaginations of scenes that could take place there. I wondered who was in the chair before the scene was left empty. I wondered what was happening inside the house. I wondered if a southern belle ever stood on the balcony, or just had fun imagining one standing there. I imagined a child's birthday party in the grove of trees to the side of the house. Not one thought was a simple Ni symbolic summary. Pretty Se/Ne. Not sure if that says more about me or the exercise though.

    Okay, so Jung didn't 'build' this house, but you can use this picture to access the theory he built. The picture itself can be used as an aid in helping clients discover what perceiving function they prefer (Extraverted Sensing, Introverted Sensing, Extraverted iNtuition or Introverted iNtuition). In addition, an exercise involving what one considers when purchasing a house can be used to help clients discover what judging function they prefer (Extraverted Thinking, Introverted Thinking, Extraverted Feeling or Introverted Feeling). These two exercises can assist your client in either identifying or confirming his or her type code. (This article will explain the perceiving exercise. The judging exercise will appear in next month's issue.)


    For the perceiving exercise, display this picture on a slide and use the instructions, "Write whatever comes to mind when you look at this." Give your client(s) about 30 seconds. (Giving too much time may make the exercise flop since the objective is to get what is natural.) Then ask your client to share what he or she wrote. (If you have a large group it is not necessary for everyone to share, or if individuals are uncomfortable sharing you may just want to give examples of common responses.)


    Extraverted Sensing (Se) describes the picture. Responses may sound similar to: 2 story house, deck that overlooks the pool, double deck, etc. Anytime a response gives detail about the what is in the picture and stays in the present, it is an Extraverted Sensing response.


    Introverted Sensing (Si) recalls one or more memories. Responses may sound similar to: Reminds me of when I was at Joe's pool party. Jack and I had a long conversation standing on the south side of the pool about a new project at work that I was very excited about... When a response recalls detail from a memory and brings the emotion experienced at the time along with it, it is an Introverted Sensing response.


    Extraverted iNtuition (Ne) generates possibilities. Responses may sound similar to: You could go swimming, float on a raft, read by the pool, build a grotto around it, put a swim-up bar in the pool, etc. If the response includes what could be (rather than what is or was), it is an Extraverted iNtuition response.


    Introverted iNtuition (Ni) identifies the central theme. Responses may be brief and similar to one or maybe two of the following: Wealth. Summer. Relaxation. It's a vacation house. Retirement. It's capitalism. A lot to clean. Greed. The good life, etc. If the response describes what the picture represents or the significance of the picture, it is an Introverted iNtuition response.

    [COLOR=#006699][B]Sometimes responses will include more than one function.[/B][/COLOR] When this happens, ask your client, "What did you write about first? How easy and natural was it for you? What responses were the most natural?" You will often find the two functions that are written about are the dominant and inferior or the auxiliary and tertiary. Understand that your client may have accessed both functions that are appearing in the exercise. Help them discern between what they have accessed and what is most natural.

    It seems to me that you might have introverted and extroverted intuition reversed there. Wouldn't introverted intuition look forward to future possibilities of how to use the house while extrovetred intuition looks for connections to timeless concepts?
