I can't tell exactly why, but I really don't like the Jungian terminology for the IM elements. So many of the words have such strong other meanings that it is difficult to separate the socionics meaning from the rest-of-the-world meaning.
I've thought of some other names for the functions based on greek words. I don't know if they're any good, but I just want to see what some other people think.
- thesis, "idea, theory"
- physis, "nature, objects"
- drasis, "action, emphasis"
- pathos, "feeling, emotion"
- chronos, "time"
- aesthesis, "perception, beauty"
- logos, "word, logic"
- ethos, "ethics, morals"
Feel free to critique, revise, or supply your own alternate terms
