Understanding Debater Personality



Cognitive Functions

Based upon the Jungian personality theory, the test suggests that personality is composed of a number of different cognitive functions. These functions can be focused primarily outward (extraverted) or inward (introverted). Each of these functions relate to how people perceive the world and make decisions.

The dominant function is the most prominent aspect of personality, while the auxiliary function plays a supporting role. The tertiary function has a weaker influence, but can become more apparent when a person is under stress. The inferior function is primarily unconscious and is often a point of weakness.

Developing this aspect can help people form a more balanced personality.

Inferior: Extraverted Intuition

  • They tend to take in information quickly and are very open-minded.
  • Once they have gathered this information, they spend time making connections between various complex and interwoven relationships.
  • They are good at spotting connections that others might overlook and tend to be focused on possibilities.
  • They have entrepreneurial minds and are always coming up with new and exciting ideas.

Inferior: Introverted Thinking

  • This cognitive function is expressed in the their thinking process. People with this type of personality are more focused on taking in information about the world around them. When they do use this information to reach conclusions, they tend to be very logical.
  • They are logical and objective. When making decisions, they place a greater weight on rational evidence instead of subjective, emotional information.
  • This function works to help the ENTP understand all the information that comes in through the extraverted intuition function. This involves imposing logic and order to help make sense of many disparate ideas and pieces of information. They dont want to just understand that something works - they want to understand the why and how behind how things function.

Inferior: Extraverted Feeling

  • As a tertiary function, this aspect of personality may not be as well-developed or prominent.
  • When developed, They can be social charmers who are able to get along well with others.
  • When this aspect of personality is weaker, the ENTP may be insensitve to others and can even be seen as aloof or unkind.

Inferior: Introverted Sensing

  • The introverted sensing function is centered on understanding the past and often applying it to current experiences and future concerns.
  • This is often a point of weakness for ENTP personalities. They are often focused more on possibilities and may fail to consider how past precedents may help predict outcomes.
  • They also tend to overlook many of the more mundane details of daily life, especially if they are deeply involved in a project or plan.
