    Default Horizontal and Vertical

    What if the Extroverted and Introverted functions had been labeled "Horizontal" and "Vertical" instead?

    I kind of like the idea myself...Makes visualization of the functions a little easier.

    You need to clarify on the implications of each. I can kind of understand, but it's not anything significant.

    Since extroversion is essentially a subjective orientation to the object and introversion is essentially a subjective orientation to the subject, I find out/in a more visually apposite and pleasing means of spatially illustrating the attentional/intentional/evaluative/perceptual/semiotic relation between world and self (they're already present in extro- and intro-, no?). But at the same time I question why more terminology need be added to a crowded field already cluttered with superfluous and suspect distinctions. Graphing in 2 dimensions rather than 3 or more?

    Horizontal and vertical... what?

    Hmm, horizontal and vertical both kind of remind me of dynamic functions.

    Vertical also reminds me of , because of its kinaesthetic flow.

    I actually do like the vertical / horizontal thing. A Y axis and X axis have different qualities. If you look at the Y axis of a graph it's considered this base that everything is relative to. If you try to graph a straight vertical line its considered "no solution" since its slope is 0/1. All lines are measured relative to Y and eventually intersect back with Y. It gives Y a relativistic quality. X is the opposite and it has a linear quality. The subject is basically relativistic & object has to be linear.

    I have no idea what these terms are supposed to explain conceptually.

    I use in/out in my thinking about Fi/Fe in particular. I especially notice that Gamma Fi draws me in, and Beta Fe pushes outward at me, or I push out with it.

    Squark posted thoughtfully on the inward/outward idea a while back:

    Regarding vertical vs. horizontal, it's problematic for me in that, because of my own educational background, I associate verticality and horizontality with relationship to time and development of meaning, narrative strategies, etc. Horizontal, moves forward through time, develops across time, not as deep, action (prosaic); vertical, more self-reflexive, standstill, goes into depths and heights (poetic).
