PERSONALITY is just a fancy backronym that means I'm obsessed with analyzing stuff that I come across in my daily life- mostly people and their personalities. My favorite thing to do in my spare time is to use the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator to get the personality types of people around me and fictional characters from my fandoms.
Fellow psychology geeks might want to keep an eye on my blog in case I come up with anything for you to psychoanalyze and discuss.
The functions are basically somebody’s way of interacting with the world. Usually MBTI stuff is really good for determining a communication style and decision-making styles. If a function is extroverted, that means that energy is focused on a person’s surroundings or other people, and if it is introverted that energy is focused on oneself and introspection. For instance, extroverted feeling means you concern yourself mostly with making others feel comfortable and happy, and introverted feeling means you have a strong sense conscience.
Dominate functions are usually the most defining and comfortable way of interacting with the world for someone. It is like a “default”. The rest of the functions usually decrease in development, although a stable, well-rounded person usually has a grounding in all of them to suit different situations. Also, what I’m listing is the character’s “top four”, each person has some of these functions somewhere. (For example, Tony Stark has extroverted feeling somewhere,but it is very difficult for him to muster).
Functions are based on what the letters are. The E or I will always be first depending if the person favors extroversion or introversion. If the person is a J, they will use their reasoning skills paired with extroversion (either T or F), and if the character is a P, the perception skills are paired with extroversion (either S or N). The rest are just opposites.
I chose to focus this blog on these functions rather than just picking each letter independently because the change in one letter can mean very different behavior. INTJs and INTPs, for instance, are much more different than just the former being “more judgmental”.
I hope that clears up your muddle! :D
Someday you’ll find the right person, and you’ll learn to have a lot more confidence in yourself. That’s what I think. So don’t settle for anything less. In this world, there are things you can only do alone, and things you can only do with somebody else. It’s important to combine the two in just the right amount
