Often the question is asked, not whether a man can be "extroverted" (extroverted) and "introvert" (introverted) simultaneously
. That is, could it be partly one and partly another. We will put an end to misunderstandings
, if will be clear that the psyche of one person, potentially, that is in its infancy, does not substantially different from the psyche of another. There is not and can not be that in one there was something in the other there is no trace. In each type of MI is the same, only different degrees of development. In each type, we find and the mechanism of extraversion and introversion mechanism. But only one of them prevails
That's because only one call extroverted, others just introverted.
When we talk about the types of informational metabolism, we have in mind precisely such conglomerates formed from all eight elements
, in which certain elements always play a leading role. Therefore, if the psyche of every human being has all the elements, however, can not say that it is a bit of one, a bit of a different type
. [type of function]
Second, often ambiguously understood Young's statement is the question of whether it is possible "balanced"
, ie, the balanced development of two or more elements. To avoid confusion
, we quote:
(8) "Experience has shown that the basic psychological functions seldom or almost never have equal strength or the same degree of development in the same individual. Usually one or the other function outweighs both the strength and development "(p.27).
"However, - wrote Jung ,-... there are individuals whose thinking is the same height with the feeling, both have the same conscious motivating force. But in this case it is not about the differentiated type, but relatively undeveloped thinking and feeling. Uniform consciousness and unconsciousness of functions is therefore a sign of the primitive state of mind "(p.88-89).
Our studies have fully confirmed this statement: among mentally full of people we have not met such individuals. Just want to immediately add that this rule is true for all eight elements functions. Each element performs a different function
, different as the number and quality of perceived and processed information from the outside. That is, in a model of it each of the eight elements of the performs a completely different role
Can I change the type of person? No, it is impossible, and effort to do so leads to a disease:
"Where there is ... due to external influence such as a perversion, an individual in the future, for the most part becomes neurotic, and his recovery is only possible through the identification of naturally relevant to the individual units" (p.13).
Our observations show that this process always occurs when people are provided with complementary partners, psyche, and each one tries to turn in his Douala. Anyone who can not withstand this struggle, forced to abandon implementation of any part of their identity and become neurotic.
