    The results seem to suggest that Model A is a load of crap.

    Slava is ENTp and has chosen or as his place of least resistance. An ENTp's place of least resistance is . Not even close.

    Rocky is ISTp and chose or as his place of least resistance. An ISTp's place of least resitance is . Not even close.

    Same goes for Elizabeth and Implied.

    That's a strong phrase you've got there, Hugo. I admire your courage. And I think you are right.

    The test gave me INTp (N subtype), but I had to force alot of things. For the weakest functions, I chose both 4 and 8, the F functions, but that combination wasn't even up there.

    I could really care less whether model-A is a load of crap, I have never really understood the thing anyways.

    I do fine with my own modified version of model-x with the weak functions anyhow, the one which I accidently reinvented before I even knew about model-x. I suppose that is one of the cool things about being ENTp, you can just piece stuff together in your mind and spout it all out, and sure enough it is usually right even after others call you foolish for your efforts.

    Hugo, #4 is supposed to be Te? it sounds like a descrption of Fe to me. Are you sure you didn't mix something up?

    #3 is Te.

    INFj N Subtype?

    Is anyone else seeing a pattern?

    Yes, but I think Hugo made a mistake. He says that #4 is Te; but it describes Fe.

    even assuming that everyone represents themselves accurately and model A is correct, i don't think you will see people choose their POLR in the first choice more often than not. the third function is more likely to be squelched by the diametrically opposite first function (you know, the strongest one?), and an unhealthy person can be highly preoccupied by POLR issues, bringing the function further to the forefront than the third. i would recommend another hit to the crackpipe and the drawing board.

    Hi Rocky

    You type came out as INFx, this means you chose 1 & 3.

    1 = Se
    3 = Te

    I never said 4 = Te

    4 = Fe.

    What I was saying is that as you are ISTp your place of least resistance is Fe, not Se or Te.

    When I say, choose what describes you worse, that does not mean choose what describes you best.

    Healthly people are aware of their weaknesses as well as there strengths. It is arguably unhealthy if people are less aware of their weaknesses than their strengths. The place of least resistance is a consious function.

    I think generally, weaknesses stand out in person's mind more than strengths. They feel they have to get rid of their weaknesses; their weaknesses bother them.

    Remeber that Model A is supposed to fit reality, not the other way round.

    There are misunderstandings about N weakness and S strength everywhere, and of course it's here. 4 is my worst, but others are not sure.

    I got INTj, intuitive subtype when doing this test. Sounds accurate for me to be honest.

    Opps, I did pick 4 first, but I mixed up the order. In that case, I would have gotten INTP (T subtype).

    I don't think people would think of their dual-seeking function as their second worse one. That may be a problem with testing this way. People ENJOY using their dual-seeking function Hugo. I don't know if most people would pick that one right away. Why don't you start off asking to pick ONE function that describes you the worst, and work from there?

    How about this:

    Pick which ever one fits you the worst (PoLR).
    Then have a chose between two functions (say Si and Ni if they picked Fe first) as to which one you think describes you BEST.
    After that, you can pick a subtype.
    MAYBE I'LL BREAK DOWN!!!

    i'm only assuming those things to illustrate that this test won't be accurate even under perfect conditions.

    It is arguably unhealthy if people are less aware of their weaknesses than their strengths. The place of least resistance is a consious function.
    i disagree. why would a person with a weakened ego (whether from interaction with superego types or the lack of dual support) be less healthy than one with a stronger one?

    I think generally, weaknesses stand out in person's mind more than strengths. They feel they have to get rid of their weaknesses; their weaknesses bother them.
    i agree with this, and it shows exactly why this method of finding POLR is inaccurate. preoccupation with POLR makes it less likely one will consider it the least like them.

    As I said POLR is a conscious function. It's more an issue of awareness than preoccupation. Therefore people should be able to identify their POLR.
