(This is open to reformulation)
1. Intertype relations is the most important aspect of type.
2. The best way to determine the nature of the functions is to figure out the most coherent pattern of functions and intertype relations, combining both textbook knowledge and empirical observation.
3. The patterns that are discovered only represent a general trend - there will often be anomalies in the functions of an individual type or of an individual relation.
4. The information that you produce, the way you respond to various types of information, and the pattern of intertype relations that you exhibit are the biggest factors in determining your type.
5. The following have less importance in determining your type than the things listed in 4.:
- Purely internal thought processes that are not expressed (either directly or indirectly).
- The four basic dichotomies.
- Purely textbook knowledge of types and functions.
6. The following have far less importance in determining your type than the things listed in 4.:
7. The following have no importance in determining your type:
- Knowledge that comes entirely from unsubstantiated theories.
- Assessments based on Statics/Dynamics, Internals/Externals, or Fields/Objects.
- Isolated examples of information metabolism or intertype relations that are not considered with respect to the person's overall pattern of behaviour.
- Reinin dichotomies
