Notes from the video:
Introverted Feeling – Direct their feelings inward, dealing with their personal feelings and morals independently. Not very concerned about the feelings of the environment and people around them.

Extroverted Feeling – Generally able to see their emotions expressed in their face and body language. Concerned and aware of the feelings of those that surround them.

Introverted Thinking – This is used when rationalizing internally and what would allow you to think about what exactly the right thing to say is. You would think about it internally before expressing it. This is also what helps you reflect and figure out why something happened or how something might work.

Extroverted Thinking – This is used to when you’re trying to organize your surroundings and helps us follow and understand what someone is thinking when expressed. A lot of Extroverted thinkers will use charts, graphs, and diagrams to help accomplish a goal or express an idea.

Introverted Sensing – This function is what stores data and information, that then allows us to tap into that later on. So people with Si sometimes might be drawn to doing things like they did in the past, or at least make a decision based off of how something went previously.

Extroverted Sensing – Focused on the present moment and the physical world and all your surroundings. This is in action when you follow an impulse or something in the moment and decide to go with it. Being aware of your 5 senses.

Introverted Intuition – This is tapping into new ideas and realizations that have not been thought before. Recognizing events and patterns and being able to predict and guess outcomes for the future. Can be viewed as someone’s “six sense”, and just having a certain “knowing” of certain things with no real reason why.

Extroverted Intuition – This is the ability to interpret situations and perhaps hidden motives in behaviors. Extroverted intuition is used when one is connecting the dots in different scenarios to draw conclusions. Following a lead until it leads you to another lead to eventually solve a problem. It allows one to see different possibilities and explore them.

Dr Chris Heimlich DC of Scottsdale Arizona explains how to use natural methods to increase memory, attention and other cognitive functions.

  2. I did the same thing–NOW(many years later), i'm gettin' down to it. Thanx for your help in doing so 🙂

  3. There are eight functions. I do not agree with the school that says we only use four of them. Of course we use all eight, but in larger or smaller extent. For instance as an INTP I am supposed to excercise Ti-Ne-Si-Fe in that order. But I am surely using Fi too and very much so. Likewise with the other three: Te, Ni and Se. And I do not think these functions are static either. Nor do they always follow that specific order. We humans are much to complicated to fit into that frame. Even if most of the time an INTP I sure can change in certain circumstances and behave like some other MBTI type or Socionic type, for that matter. The processes in our psyche are like waves coming up into our mind and drawing back, followed by another functional process coming up and redrawing and interacting with each other and so on.

  4. my cognitive function tests says i'm an infj and my mbti test result is an infp. Infj and Infp doesn't have the same function so i really don't know what I am lol

  5. "Ti is about thinking about things before you say it", "Si stores data and information", "Te uses charts and diagrams"
    I'm sorry but do you realise how ridiculous this sounds? If you are going to make a video about the cognitive functions, then at least do some ACTUAL research on them.

  6. I do not mean to be critical , but the explanations are not very accurate and does not explain much about the functions

  7. I find it a little ironic that someone who has consistently failed to correctly identify their own MBTI type, keeps making videos on the subject.

  8. 0:52 Girl, did you really miss Te? Well, I can tell you aren't very Te, you would have checked twice if you were.

  9. The truth is, a person can develop ALL of the functions.
    I've been researching MBTI for a bit now and what I've noticed is that the type theory and the function theory basically don't fit together and doesn't make sense. The online tests always give me the result of ENTP. Yet the functions tests give me different results each time – results that don't even get close to my personality type which is mostly ENTP.
    And that is because the only two functions out of 8 that I use rarely and that are inferior in me are the Si and Fe. All of the others are quite developed, some very well, even the "opposing" ones. IRL, there are no opposite functions and the real preference comes in different situations.
    I say, those simplistic superficial MBTI tests do a better job describing you and giving you some useful tips, than the complex functions theory (which can give you insight on what functions you need to develop in order to become a balanced person).

  10. Here I would've thought that someone who lists Extroverted Feeling twice is an EXFJ 😛

  11. I am so grateful for this video. I found it a year ago, and prior to finding it, I really didn't get functions. A year later I feel really well versed in MBTI, and this is my go to video when I need to explain my MBTI gibberish to newbies! Really this is the easiest to grasp and least intimidating explanation out there.
