8 Cognitive Functions of Personality Type

8 Cognitive Functions of Personality Type
Your Super Power in Personality Type

 As defined by Myers-Briggs, there are 16 Personality Type. Of those 16 types, there are 8 dominant functions.  Everyone uses all 8 functions but our type determines our ability to use each function. Two will serve as our strengths & two will serve as our weaknesses or blind spots. The remaining 4 are our “Shadow Functions”, in our unconscious, and are often displayed during stress.  All 8 functions are equally valuable.

Eight cognitive Functions

  • Extraverted Sensing (SE)
  • Introverted Sensing (SI)
  • Extraverted Intuition (NE)
  • Introverted Intuition (NI)
  • Extraverted Thinking (TE)
  • Introverted Thinking (TI)
  • Extraverted Feeling (FE)
  • Introverted Feeling (FI)

Everyone has one favorite function among the four mental functions (S, N, T or F)
Everyone uses that favorite function in their favorite (Extraverted or Introverted) world.
This is what determines our Dominant Function
