    Default Why are the information elements out of logical order?

    Why aren't the functions in sequntial order? I am an IEI, so why do I write them like the left colum and not the right?

    [|]..........[|]
    [|]..........[|]
    [|]..........[|]
    [|]..........[|]

    or with the fuction numbers:

    [ 1 | 2 ].........[ 1 | 2 ]
    [ 4 | 3 ].........[ 3 | 4 ]
    [ 6 | 5 ].........[ 5 | 6 ]
    [ 7 | 8 ].........[ 7 | 8 ]

    is it just because they wanted a checker board?

    the function order isn't about "strength" the way it is in mbti. Its about how its treated and when its used in what circumstances. wikisocion has a link that talks about the specific imporance of each position of each function.

    i'm guessing it's because the columns represent some function dichotomy or something.

    Maybe you misunderstood my questions. I know all about how all the functions relate to each other, I was just curious about the order they were placed in the chart, it seems a little confusing. I just wanted to know why the EGO and ID are read left to right (1,2 and 7,8) and the SUPER EGO and SUPER ID are read backwards (4,3 and 6,5). Does that make sense?

    oh, I still have no idea what those fucking row checker things are trying to convey.

    information flow is better shown with that order.

    1 > 2 > 3 > 4

    also, i remember seeing some russian stuff where it actually represents a cube, not a rectangle.

    That make so much sense. The right column of functions are all inert and the left column are all contact functions. Thanks :]

    The functions on the left are "inert" and to the right are "contact"... I think it has something to do with that lol
