    I do believe you have gone certifiably insane, Tranny. But I agree with you!

    Fundamentally speaking, function are emotional responses to everything our sensory facilities puts us into contact with. We've not only forgotten our friendly little functions, but also the concept of "information metabolism" without which Socionics becomes useless, meaningless, and contradictory. Type isn't about acting, but about being, and I'm sick to my stomach with "Type me! Type me!" threads that have, for the past one and a halfyears on this forum, failed to offer all that much insight into people's types. All we do in those thread is perpetuate stereotypes by aligning our own behavior with profiles or linking functions with observable "talents" or behaviors.

    I think this is good, Transigent. Please don't delete it for gayness! It's quite straight.

    Agreed!

    Just by this (and the friendly functional feelings that you described :wink: ), I'd easily be able to type myself as SLE, even if I had no prior knowledge of Socionics. Wow!

    I wasn't sure if my typing myself would be welcome, but as Kraus has set the standard:

    Se over Si
    Ni over Ne
    Te over Ti
    Fi over Fe

    I suppose that would make me some form of Gamma. I'm interested in what other people think of these descriptions before I take it too seriously.

    Nice post... though I don't understand the 8th function/Ti thing. According to your definition I'd like Ti.

    And shouldn't Ni have something to do with knowing in advanced how things will unfold?

    Functions aren't feelings. You're just talking about feelings associated with functions.

    Maybe. 6 in one hand a half dozen in the other. Just a different way of looking at it. Whether the feels come from functions or functions come from feels, doesn't really matter either way cuz there isn't any way to tell for sure.

    But objectively, regardless of whether or not they are associated with one another, or if one causes the other, they are two different things.

    in a way, tranny has simply substituted thoughts for actions in our quest for evidence. the thoughts we have are evidence of psychic structures, instead of actions/talents.

    it is still very very ambiguous as to the relationship between functions and thoughts, just as it is between functions and behavior/action.

    socionics is interesting as an ontology, but i wonder how much that reduces its credibility as a science.
    LII
    that is what i was getting at. if there is an inescapable appropriation that is required in the act of understanding, this brings into question the validity of socionics in describing what is real, and hence stubborn contradictions that continue to plague me.
