- Extroverted (E) vs. Introverted (I),
their preference of one of the two functions of perception:
- Sensing (S) vs. Intuition (N),
and their preference of one of the two functions of judging:
- Thinking (T) vs. Feeling (F)
The three areas of preferences introduced by Jung are dichotomies (i.e. bipolar dimensions where each pole represents a different preference). Jung also proposed that in a person one of the four functions above is dominant – either a function of perception or a function of judging. Isabel Briggs Myers, a researcher and practitioner of Jung’s theory, proposed to see the judging-perceiving relationship as a fourth dichotomy influencing personality type [Briggs Myers, 1980]:
- Judging (J) vs. Perceiving (P)
The first criterion, Extraversion – Introversion, signifies the source and direction of a person’s energy expression. An extravert’s source and direction of energy expression is mainly in the external world, while an introvert has a source of energy mainly in their own internal world.
The second criterion, Sensing – Intuition, represents the method by which someone perceives information. Sensing means that a person mainly believes information he or she receives directly from the external world. Intuition means that a person believes mainly information he or she receives from the internal or imaginative world.
The third criterion, Thinking – Feeling, represents how a person processes information. Thinking means that a person makes a decision mainly through logic. Feeling means that, as a rule, he or she makes a decision based on emotion, i.e. based on what they feel they should do.
The fourth criterion, Judging – Perceiving, reflects how a person implements the information he or she has processed. Judging means that a person organizes all of his life events and, as a rule, sticks to his plans. Perceiving means that he or she is inclined to improvise and explore alternative options.
All possible permutations of preferences in the 4 dichotomies above yield 16 different combinations, or personality types, representing which of the two poles in each of the four dichotomies dominates in a person, thus defining 16 different personality types. Each personality type can be assigned a 4 letter acronym of corresponding combination of preferences:
The first letter in the personality type acronym corresponds to the first letter of the preference of general attitude – “E” for extroversion and “I” for introversion.
The second letter in the personality type acronym corresponds to the preference within the sensing-intuition dimension: “S” stands for sensing and “N” stands for intuition.
The third letter in the personality type acronym corresponds to preference within the thinking-feeling pair: “T” stands for thinking and “F” stands for feeling.
The forth letter in the personality type acronym corresponds a person’s preference within the judging-perceiving pair: “J” for judging and “P” for perception.
- ISTJ stands for Introverted, Sensing, Thinking, Judging
- ENFP stands for Extroverted, intuitive, Feeling, Perceiving
What do percentages next to the personality type words or letters mean?
Human metrics Jung Typology Test™ (JTT™) and Jung Typology Profiler for Workplace™ (JTPW™) instrument determine the expressiveness of each of the four personality type dimensions (Extroversion vs. Introversion, Sensing vs. Intuition, Thinking vs. Feeling, and Judging vs. Perceiving.
In JTT™ and JTPW™, the scales of these four dimensions represent a continuum between two opposite poles, from 100 at one pole to 100 at another pole. I.e. Extrovert-Introvert dimension is a continuum from 100 on Extroversion (i.e. respondent is a 100% extrovert) to 100 on Introversion (i.e. respondent is a 100% introvert). In other words the scale is 200 units long:
Extrovert [100% -0% – 100%] Introvert People may reveal features of both poles but typically have a preference of one way over the other. The letter indicates the preference and the percentage indicates the extent of it.
The E-I score of 0% means the respondent is at the borderline between being an extravert and an introvert. Having Extroversion score of greater than 0 – e.g. 20% – means being 20% more slanted toward Extroversion over Introversion. Having Introversion score of greater than 0 – e.g. 20% – means being 20% more slanted toward Introversion over Extroversion.The same pertains to the S-N, T-F, and J-P dichotomies.The Basics of Jung’s Typology
Jung called Extroversion-Introversion preference general attitude, since it reflects an individual’s attitude toward the external world distinguished by the “direction of general interest” [Jung, 1971]: the extrovert maintains affinity for, and sources energy from the outer world, whereas the introvert is the other way around – their general interest is directed toward their inner world, which is the source of their energy.
As mentioned above, Jung introduced a pair of judging functions – thinking and feeling – and a pair of perception functions – sensing (or “sensation”), and intuition.
Sensing-Intuition preference represents the method by which one perceives information: Sensing means an individual mainly relies on concrete, actual information – “in so far as objects release sensations, they matter” , whereas Intuition means a person relies upon their conception about things based on their understanding of the world. Thinking-Feeling preference indicates the way an individual processes information. Thinking preference means an individual makes decisions based on logical reasoning, and is less affected by feelings and emotions. Feeling preference means that an individual’s base for decisions is mainly feelings and emotions.
Jung introduced the idea of hierarchy and direction of psychological functions. According to Jung, one of the psychological functions – a function from either judging or perception pair – would be primary (also called dominant). In other words, one pole of the poles of the two dichotomies (Sensing-Feeling and Thinking-Feeling) dominates over the rest of the poles. The Extroversion-Introversion preference sets the direction of the dominant function: the direction points to the source of energy that feeds it – i.e. to the outer world for extroverts and to the inner world for introverts.
Jung suggested that a function from the other pair would be secondary (also called auxiliary) but still be “a determining factor” [Jung, 1971]. I.e. if Intuition is dominant, then the auxiliary one is either Thinking or Feeling. If Sensing is dominant, then the auxiliary one can also be either Thinking or Feeling. However, if Thinking is dominant, then the auxiliary one is either Sensing or Intuition, and if Feeling is dominant then the auxiliary one is either Sensing or Intuition. In other words, the auxiliary function never belongs to the same dichotomy.
Jung called feeling and thinking types “rational” because they are characterized by the dominance of judging functions that provide reasoning rationale (be it thinking or feeling). “Rational” or Judging preference results in thinking, feelings, response and behavior that consciously operate in line with certain rules, principles or norms. People with dominant “rational” or judging preference perceive the world as an ordered structure that follows a set of rules.
He called sensing and intuitive types “irrational” because they are characterized by dominance of the functions of perception (either sensing or intuition), and therefore their “commissions and omissions are based not upon reasoned judgment but upon the absolute intensity of perception” [Jung, 1971]. “Irrational” or Perceiving preference operates with opportunities, with a range of possible outcomes that result from assumed premises or from sensations, mostly driven by the unconscious processes. People with dominant “irrational” or Perceiving preference thinking see the world as a structure that can take various forms and outcomes. It is possible to determine, either by observation or by asking certain questions, preference of Judging vs. Perceiving and the strength thereof in a person.

Amazing 360 view of the First Stage Landing on Droneship. Just an amazing video although it is short you feel like your there watching this excitement unwind. Just fa-nominal footage as it lands. Listen to the crackle and watch as it descends at sea, simply out of this world, or should I say ,into this world? Back in early April, Elon Musk’s Space X finally achieved its goal of landing its reusable Falcon 9 rocketon a drone at sea. Shortly after, the space agency shared some impressive photos , of the landing, but now they’ve gone one step further and released an amazing 360-degree video of the event. The footage gives you a first-hand look at what it would be like to stand on the floating platform as the rocket touches down above you.This is the first time SpaceX has every released a 360-degree video, and hopefully it’s the first of many to come.
If you’re watching the video from a desktop browser, you can of course click and drag the point of view around to see different angles. But to experience it in a really special way, you need to use a VR headset.According to SpaceX has been trying for some time now to land one of its rockets after being launched into space, with prior failures and close attempts leading up to the April landing. That specific rocket had been used to deliver supplies to the International Space Station, and upon landing, SpaceX collected it to study its condition.It’s not clear yet if the booster will be used once again, and thus fulfill SpaceX’s mission of developing reusable rockets, but the agency has said that if it meets their requirements, they will re-launch it sometime in the near future.

The Worlds largest scientific experiment has gone offline because of a foreign intruder.
According to Dave Swanson, Bread-makers and pasta machines were once the hot new gadgets in the kitchen, but today they serve primarily as a reminder of ’80s white elephant parties. Of course, new specialty devices are popping up all the time to fill your cupboards. Here, we found a new one this week: How about an ethnic counter top oven to slide between your Vita-mix and Cuisinart?
If we sound cynical, we are. And yet we can’t wait to try fresh tortillas out of a flattery tortilla maker.
Feed a dough-filled pod into the Flatev and the simple, slightly retro-looking device flattens the dough, grills it, and slides a fresh, fully cooked tortilla into a tray on the bottom. It can pump them out at the rate of one tortilla per minute.
You might think the humble tortilla is too niche an item to warrant a dedicated device. If so, no one would blame you for moving on to the next article. But according to the Flatev team, in the U.S. tortillas are consumed more than any type of bread—it’s a $12 billion market with 10 percent annual growth. That’s a lot of masa.
And there’s no doubt fresh-made tortillas put store-bought tortillas to shame. The char is more pronounced, the warm dough is redolent of maize, and the imperfections lend authenticity.
Unlike most store-bought tortillas, Flatev’s dough is free of preservatives or artificial colors or flavors. The ingredients for corn tortillas are simply water, ground corn, and a dash of lime. Or, for tortillas de hernia, just flour, baking soda and salt.
But if tortillas are so easy to make, why do we need another machine hogging up precious counter space in our kitchen? Simple: Because tortillas (corn, in particular) require attention that makes fresh pasta look like child’s play.
Even starting from bagged masa, it’s a laborious task. And if you want to do it the really authentic way, corn kernels should be soaked in lime overnight, then ground on a stone metate. While tortilla-making is hardly a lost art—more colorful Mexican restaurants have a little old abuelita grinding away next to a grill—it’s not exactly a growth industry.
Like coffee from a Keurig, tortillas from a Flatev won’t be cheap. The machine itself is expected to retail for about $290, while the pods will cost 90 cents each. While fresh tortillas served steaming hot from the Flatev will undoubtedly beat store-bought in a face-off, $11 for a dozen is a pretty steep upcharge.
But Flatev’s potential stretches well beyond Taco Tuesday. After all, tortillas are just another form of flatbread. Whether it’s making Venezuelan arepas or Greek pita, Indian naan or Chinese loabing, the Flatev may have a place in cultures all around the world.
The company has already raised $5 million, and is set to launch a Kick starter campaign with a $100,000 goal. (Like many Kick starter campaigns these days, it’s more for PR than funding.) The first machines are expected for delivery by summer 2017, and some 12,000 per-orders have reportedly been logged.
Flatev’s creators are still working on the environmental footprint of the pods, a concern that has bedeviled Keurig coffee machines and other single-use devices. But the Flatev has one major advantage in this department: Unlike a K-cup, a used Flatev pod isn’t littered with coffee grounds, nor does it require a built-in filter—the main issues that consign K-cups to landfills.
Flatev’s website doesn’t detail what its pods will be made of, or how they can be disposed of, but says the company is “committed to finding the best solution by working with ecology experts and environmental scientists, so the pods do not contribute to any waste.”

Meanwhile, before ponying up for a Flatev, you might try making fresh tortillas at home. Serious Eats explains the step-by-step process behind making masa from scratch, but there are easier ways to make authentic tacos.
Check to see if any of the Latin American grocers in your area sell fresh corn masa. If you can’t pin it down, look for masa harina—the ground maize flour used to make the dough. Love and Lemons offers a straightforward guide to tortilla-making at home. Pair their tips with the dough, a tortilla press, and a griddle or comal. taco fiestas just might become a regular tradition in your home.
