    • Do All The Types Idealize Their Shadow Self?
    • 07-26-2016
    • Do all NFJs love the inherent exciteability and moral character of NFPs? Do all NFPs admire the inherent enthusiasm and passion of an NFJ? Carl Jung wrote extensively about the concept of an anima: and while some say the anima is the fourth function (Beebe) the anima could also be the opposing other, the shadow self. I personally think the anima/animus is the representation of the unconscious feminine in a man or the masculine in a woman: the unconscious self within us that we are trying to inte..

    • Are the cognitive functions driven by emotional responses?
    • 07-24-2016
    • The Affective & Cognitive Functions My hypothesis is that exposure to certain neurotransmitters at an early age drive our brains early development. People with higher levels of certain neurotransmitters have a built in higher need for certain neurotransmitters, and the higher the need, the more you need of a certain form of stimuli in order to feel satisfied. My hypothesis is that Carl Jungs eight cognitive functions can be divided into four cognitive and four affective functions, where t..

    • How Intuitives Rebel Against Their Primal Selves

      Much of our brain was developed at a very early age. During our first years, much of our personality has yet to become known, even to us. But what happens to us while we are carried by our mothers and nurtured by our parents, becomes a part of our prenatal footprint. Our early experiences impact our brain and primarily it impacts our archaic selves. This is what I mean when I talk about how the four types driving the existence of the cognitive function..

    • The neurochemical evidence for Cognitive Functions
    • 07-14-2016
    • Feel free to support my work by joining my network on Patreon.

      Do the cognitive functions exist? So far, nothing in neuroscience suggests cognitive functions can be divided into certain areas. But with Helen Fisher, support for the cognitive functions might finally exist. To create merit to the cognitive functions, we have to find that personality types with introverted thinking and extroverted feeling are distinct to types with introverted feeling and extroverted thinking. To do ..

    • No, The MBTI Isn’t Real Science. But Here’s How You Can Save It
    • 07-10-2016
    • Photograph credits: Mr McGill

      Once in a while an article pops up ready to claw at the MBTI. The field of psychology is strongly critical of the MBTI. Science has already proven multiple times that the MBTI doesn’t work, and therefore, many argue that it’s meaningless. However, just because something is scientifically invalid, that doesn’t mean that it’s meaningless. The MBTI is not just driven by money and the collective blindness of the stupid majority. Th..

    • Introverted and Extroverted Intuition

      I have been thinking about something for a while, I'm not sure what it is exactly, but here goes:

      A function to me is not a cognitive ability, it's an instinct or an impulse, how you are tendentially driven to think or feel. There is no strong basis in neuroscience that your brain can be divided into eight unique functions that you use in practical situations such as physical exercise, brainstorming, and emotional manipulation. The best way to think ..

    • Theory released as open science
    • 06-11-2016
    • We have finally released our typology as a open-license.

      It has been tested with over 20000 random visitors and the concepts are related to individual differences in brain-biology which is then linked to individual differences in personality affecting philosophy, psychology, sociology and anthropology.

      We have reproduced tests on the theory countless of times. Each day a new set of 200 random visitors reproduce the statistics.

    • A philosophical note on the study of personality
    • 05-16-2016
    • It’s difficult to create a neuropsychological framework of personality, because it tries to blend knowledge from two different philosophies together into one.
      Psychology is primarily associated with social phenomena and qualitative experience while neuroscience is primarily associated with non-social phenomena and quantitative experience.
      One could define personality primarily on quantitative measurements but end up with a meaningless system lacking usefulness and explanatory..

    • Release of a new test
    • 04-04-2016
    • We have added a new test on the site which is inspired by the theory of the Highly Sensitive Person (HSP).

      This is our interpretation of the theory:
      "HSP is a idealistic personality-trait which is about interpreting more than other people, this trait makes sensory input more symbolic and this in turn causes sensory-input to be experienced more vividly and this creates a person with a high sensitivity for sensations."

      As we get statistics for the q..

    • Psychological types as a tool
    • 03-19-2016
    • Psychological types is often used as a tool to educate people about mental processes and provide words and concepts to help understand oneself and other people.

      A type is one of many distinct categories and psychology is the study of behaviour and mind. So psychological types are the study of distinct categories of behaviour and mind. [7,8]

      A clear example of this is Freuds popular types of mental processes called ”Id, ego, superego”: [1]
