this is inspired by a talk I had with someone and I need to make sure that I'm not wrong about versus .
This is what I proposed: and are both ways to describe objects without personal evaluation (as opposed to judging functions) and without taking into consideration the object's link to other objects (as opposed to introverted functions). observes the undisputable REAL aspects. Something either IS or ISN'T true. There is no "maybe", although the answer depends on the exact question. observes the potential COULD BE aspects. There are many overlapping truths. When there's a Ne statement, the opposite might also be true.
This means that if a person is constantly very sure about things, then they are probably Se type. For Ne types there is no absolute truth in anything. They are the "never say never", "don't say anything you might regret later" kind of people. And even if they make a statement, if you ask if the opposite is true, they will also agree! Se types say that the opposite is wrong and their version is right.
- true vs false statements and black and white thinking
- various overlapping truths and many shades of gray.
- - - - - -
Alternative explanation to vs that contradicts my version.
Se is about concrete information and Ne is about abstract information. Se types are sure about statements they make about physical/real/concrete traits of objects and Ne types are sure about statements they make about abstract/imagined inner traits of objects. types can be just as categorical and make as many true/false statements as types.
