What is the difference between abstracting and concretizing ? Is there a difference? Is there such a thing as an 'abstracting' use of a function, or does abstracting movement occur without an effect on outside information?
Abstracting : Se -> Ti -> Ne
Concretizing : Se -> Fi -> Ne
Do IxTj's have role functions? What is to keep me from believing they're just 'abstracting thinking' in situations that draw on ?
If it is possible for a person to use both their judgment function and their perception function in both the concretizing and abstracting directions, thus allowing for every possible function axis transition, is it at all reasonable to use socionics as an excuse for failing interhuman relations?
Does a failure to adapt constitute an inability to adapt, or a refusal?
Of the two cycle orientations, is for any given person one of the two prefered, or are both valued equally? If either is prefered, is the the preference different between different people? What determines the preference?
Is there a relation between preference of abstracting/concretizing function use and the political orientations/contextual lines tcaudilllg talks about?
If there are people who prefer abstacting function use, aren't the Reinin properties for these people inversed, thus making for a psychological inventory that has next to nothing in common with that of a person of the same type who prefers concretizing function use?
If this last thing is true, shouldn't we see this prefered orientation as a fifth independant dichotomy? CINTj, anyone?
