That being said, yes, Gus and Hazel are going into the queue. ;)

Everyone uses objective (free of bias) and subjective (biased) functions. Your objective functions keep you on track while your subjective functions have the potential to derail you.

These are the objective functions:

These facts-based functions can be argued when differences of opinion arise, because none of them are personalized emotions or perceptions. These functions see what is actually there, which is why they are “accurate” in their assessment and predictions.

Te looks outward for its logic. It deals in proven realities in the form of textbook information citing sources or legitimate, provable, indisputable facts about the environment. Once a consensus of logic or agreement of truth is reached, Te adopts it as legitimate. It looks at a situation and sees the reality of its facts. Te seeks immediate and obvious solutions to problems. It requires external logical affirmation to feel comfortable – it needs agreement or it feels insecure, because it doesn’t trust internal logic and sees it as potentially illogical.

Fe looks outward for its morality. It deals in agreed upon ethics and moral values in the form of social norms and expectations. Once a consensus of morality is reached, Fe adopts it as a legitimate moral view. It looks at a moral situation and sees the reality of its impact. When Fe objects, it moralizes over the situation — is this ethical or socially acceptable? It will seek compromise or negotiation between conflicting views to maintain harmony in a group. Fe seeks immediate harmony. It needs external affirmation on its feelings to feel comfortable – it needs agreement or it feels insecure, because it doesn’t trust independent emotions and sees them as selfish.

Se looks outward for its source of physical stimulation. It takes the tangible facts and details of its environment and uses them to spur on immediate action. It sees what is actually there, without bias or judgment. Se seeks immediate action. It needs external stimulation to prompt action, because it cannot generate its own environment, and it hates being in a situation without exciting physical possibilities.

Ne looks outward for its source of mental stimulation. It takes the tangible facts and ideas of its environment and uses them to create new ideas. It sees what is actually there, without bias or judgment, and generates new possibilities while building connections between its ideas. Ne seeks immediate ideas. It needs external evidence to prompt its theories, because it cannot generate its own ideas, and it hates being in a situation without exciting mental inspiration.

These are the subjective functions:

These are based on personalized perceptions, which means they can’t be argued with over differences of opinion, because they aren’t the facts. These functions interpret reality based on personal factors rather than what really happened or what is actually there. They can be totally irrational but are always paired with a reality-based function. Problems arise when a subjective function overrules an objective function (how you feel causes you to ignore the factual evidence or environment).

Ti looks inward for logic. It deals in what seems logical as opposed to external facts. It feels uncomfortable with a logical consensus among scientists, because agreement implies an absence of independent logic. It looks at a situation and seeks the meaning behind it, as opposed to the facts. It wants to understand.

Fi looks inward for its morality. It deals in personal ethics and moral values. It feels uncomfortable with shared outbursts of emotion, since it is self-contained and doesn’t need external support in what it is feeling. It looks at a situation and interprets how it feels about it, as opposed to the facts. It wants to attach personal feelings to it.

Si looks inward for experience. It deals in personalized knowledge. It takes in information and strongly compares itself to its own behavior and experiences. It looks at a situation and interprets it according to how it is internally impacted, as opposed to the facts.

Ni looks inward for ideas. It deals in personalized visions of the future. It creates new ideas and generates visions according to its own dreams and goals. It views the same situation from many different perspectives. It looks at a situation and interprets it according to how it is internally impacted, as opposed to the facts.

Shortened from my blog post.

Alphas: Cameron Hicks [ISTP]

Introverted Thinking (Ti): using logic and reason to understand or solve problems, self-discipline and independently managing their lives and personal projects.

Extroverted Sensing (Se): not content with routine and familiar experiences, enjoys physical thrills and new sensations, gathers concrete details and sensory information of the environment by way of the five senses, noticing details other types might miss, and strong visual recall (a “photographic” memory).

Introverted Intuition (Ni): may display some degree of interest in abstract or theoretical topics, able to narrow down life experiences and focus on a goal.

Extroverted Feeling (Fe): can detach from their emotions, desiring public affirmation, seeks to maintain harmony, tries to avoid hurting or offending others, wants everyone to be included, and struggles to understand or articulate their emotions at the right time.

Cameron Hicks relies on his own instincts and logic to get him out of sticky situations (Ti). He internalizes a plan and takes action on it, often using his environment to his advantage (Ti-Se). Hicks is super aware of what is around him, so much so that he can control his abilities and make extraordinary things happen (Se). He is quick to take action – if he sees a problem or potential advantage, he takes it. He has fast reflexes, good driving skills, and is able to improvise of his plan on the run.

At a crime scene, Hicks can take in the external evidence (Se) and work backward through it, to determine what actually happened and the true sequence of events (Ni). Though he doesn’t talk about his emotions, he’s upset that he can’t be everything he wants to be for his son, and often tries to make peace between quarreling members of the team. Hicks doesn’t emotionally engage with Gary, but strives to make him happy so as to bring harmony to his environment (inferior Fe).

The Fall: Alexandria [ENFP]

Extroverted Intuition (Ne): seeks outer discovery, playful, restless, loves new ideas, connections, and possibilities, external brainstorming, looks beyond the surface to find hidden data, patterns, and possibilities, searching for the unknown.

Introverted Feeling (Fi): forming a personalized worldview independent of social conventions, preferences for personal tastes and moral judgments.

Extroverted Thinking (Te): outwardly express their judgments and opinions, tendency to think out loud, strives to bring order, control, and rationality to external systems and operations, wants to take action.

Introverted Sensing (Si): using information from the past to inform the present, preserving certain traditions, using tried and true methods, inner body awareness.

Alexandria has a vivid imagination. She takes Roy’s story and creates new aspects and ideas inside of it that reflect her unique personality and perspective of the world (Ne). She’s excited at the idea of a new story, and likes to look beyond the surface in her companions to their hearts. Even though she is very young, Alexandria can still make accurate estimations of how things will turn out. She has enough hope and a big enough dream that she can turn a bad story into a happy one. Alexandria doesn’t share her emotions easily with others; when upset, she often goes away to be alone (Fi). She employs childish tactics to benefit her needs and wants – refusing to tell her mother the doctor’s instructions, denying her tendency to steal things, and quietly but insistently asserting how she wants things to turn out (Fi).

Things need to make logical sense to Alexandria for her to accept them, within the story constructs; she freely shares facts about her situation with others (her father is dead, their house burned down, etc) (Te). She infuses her portion of the story with familiar faces she has encountered, but is more interested in the happy ending than reliving her own personal experiences (inferior Si).

Alphas: Gary Bell [ESTJ]

Extroverted Thinking (Te): outwardly express their judgments and opinions, tendency to think out loud, strives to bring order, control, and rationality to external systems and operations, wants to take action.

Introverted Sensing (Si): spends time reflecting on the past or cherished traditions, prefers routine, sensitive to inner-body sensations, compares present experiences to past ones.

Extroverted Intuition (Ne): seeks outer discovery, playful, restless, loves new ideas, connections, and possibilities, external brainstorming, looks beyond the surface to find hidden data, patterns, and possibilities, searching for the unknown.

Introverted Feeling (Fi): withholding external evidence of their emotions, adhering closely to personal feelings and values.

Gary Bellmakes observations about everything, and is very confident in asserting his opinions and thinking out loud (Te). He relies on established facts to build his worldview and often uses them to correct others in their thinking; his autism aggravates this tendency into obsessive-compulsive observations. Gary likes routine and hates to deviate from it. He’s super sensitive to the sensations in the air around him, which makes him hyper-aware of frequencies that “hum” or trigger his anxiety (autistic Si).

He recognizes patterns in the airwaves he plays with, and has a thirst for new ideas and adventures – he wants to learn to drive, he enjoys the idea of becoming a “secret agent” and “partner” to Bill, and he’s able to see through people who try to manipulate and mislead him (Ne). He forms new ideas based off existing systems and concepts. Because of his autism, Gary reveals his emotions more than he would otherwise, but it’s usually expressed through displeasure with his environment. He is not sensitive but stubbornly sticks to his beliefs and values, and resists anyone else’s ability to change his mind or control him (inferior Fi).

Prometheus: David 8 [ISTJ]

Introverted Sensing (Si): spends time reflecting on the past or cherished traditions, prefers routine, sensitive to inner-body sensations, compares present experiences to past ones.

Extroverted Thinking (Te): outwardly express their judgments and opinions, tendency to think out loud, strives to bring order, control, and rationality to external systems and operations, wants to take action.

Introverted Feeling (Fi): withholding external evidence of their emotions, adhering closely to personal feelings and values.

Extroverted Intuition (Ne): finding creative ways to teach or engage, connecting ideas, brainstorming new theories, conceiving options and possibilities.

David 8 is an android who builds his own personality based off things he has seen and experienced – he invents a creative mind through researching the dreams of his companions on board ship, and even styles his hair after Peter O’Toole’s hair in Lawrence of Arabia (Si). He repeats learned information and is conscious of taking advantage of the present, to the extent that he cannot foresee the complication of his own near-death. His own experiences and subjective ideas (Si) make him less likely to assert his opinions, but he is still a fact-based personality who can make blunt, critical, and objective observations and conclusions (Te).

In the presence of others, David maintains an impassive façade of emotional non-existence, but his behaviors indicate that he is very capable of processing his own emotions and feeling such things as hate (Fi). David sets out to “repay” those who slight or insult him not through emotional outbursts, but deliberately destructive actions intended to vindicate his hurt feelings (Te-Fi). His inferior Ne makes him curious to experiment, and eager to add new experiences and ideas to his knowledge base.

The Fall: Roy Walker [INFP]

Introverted Feeling (Fi): forming a personalized worldview independent of social conventions, preferences for personal tastes and moral judgments.

Extroverted Intuition (Ne): seeks outer discovery, playful, restless, loves new ideas, connections, and possibilities, external brainstorming, looks beyond the surface to find hidden data, patterns, and possibilities, searching for the unknown.

Introverted Sensing (Si): using information from the past to inform the present, preserving certain traditions, using tried and true methods, inner body awareness.

Extroverted Thinking (Te): objective truths and standardized ways of doing things, a desire to organize the immediate environment, the need to follow rules and be responsible.

Roy Walker internalizes so much of his pain that it starts infecting his vivid imagination. He doesn’t want to talk about his intense emotional suffering, but instead intends to permanently eradicate it according to his own moral principles (Fi). He is very kind and persuasive in his manipulation of Alexandria, but also unflinching in holding true to his beliefs (this is my story, it will end the way I want it to). He has a vivid imagination that spreads out in different directions, incorporating new stories and plot twists that all carry deep personal meaning to him (Fi-Ne).

His stories are all inspiration based on his own personal experiences; Roy also becomes incapable of emotionally overcoming a traumatic accident in his past (Si). He devises a plan to manipulate Alexandria into becoming his unwitting accomplice in suicide, but finds it very difficult to articulate the facts to her in the end (inferior Te).

Titanic: Ruth Dewitt Bukater [ISTJ]

Introverted Sensing (Si): spends time reflecting on the past or cherished traditions, prefers routine, sensitive to inner-body sensations, compares present experiences to past ones.

Extroverted Thinking (Te): outwardly express their judgments and opinions, tendency to think out loud, strives to bring order, control, and rationality to external systems and operations, wants to take action.

Introverted Feeling (Fi): withholding external evidence of their emotions, adhering closely to personal feelings and values.

Extroverted Intuition (Ne): finding creative ways to teach or engage, connecting ideas, brainstorming new theories, conceiving options and possibilities.

Ruth de Witt Bukater is a woman of traditional principles and personal experience. She prefers what she is comfortable with to the unknown – she is put ill at ease when asked to embrace change in her life, so she seeks to maintain her standard of living through marrying her daughter off to a rich man – as she did in her youth (Si). Though polite, Ruth points out the facts of their situation to her daughter – the money is gone, her husband left vast debts, and they need Cal to remain financially afloat (Te). She sets about organizing the world and the people around her – both in trying to keep Rose under control and make wedding arrangements.

She doesn’t share her emotions with others easily, nor like them to see her break down. Ruth has vivid opinions and doesn’t hesitate to assert them through her behavior (Fi). She intends to remain true to herself, and it upsets her when her daughter doesn’t consider her also in her rash behavior. Ruth doesn’t like change, but also senses the connection between her daughter and foresees the potential negative consequences if this behavior is allowed to go unchallenged (inferior Ne).

Doctor Who: Eleven [ENTP]

Extroverted Intuition (Ne): seeks outer discovery, playful, restless, loves new ideas, connections, and possibilities, external brainstorming, looks beyond the surface to find hidden data, patterns, and possibilities, searching for the unknown.

Introverted Thinking (Ti): using logic and reason to understand or solve problems, self-discipline and independently managing their lives and personal projects.

Extroverted Feeling (Fe): striving for peace, harmony, and understanding in their environment, working to cultivate good feelings in other people, withholding opinions for the sake of social harmony, and desires public affirmation.

Introverted Sensing (Si): using information from the past to inform the present, preserving certain traditions, using tried and true methods, inner body awareness.

The Doctor is forever in search of new ideas and possibilities. He gets extremely bored without anything to think about. He builds quick connections between people, grasps enormous complexities very rapidly, and is somewhat reckless in his tendency to leap into new situations (Ne). He tries to focus on the big picture but is easily distracted by new theories, ideas, possibilities, and adventures. Rather than base his logic on agreed-upon facts, the Doctor embraces all theories, no matter how crazy they may seem (Ti).

He seeks external affirmation for both his behavior and his style of garment, and is slightly hurt at criticism (Fe). The Doctor becomes rapidly uncomfortable if his companions are bickering, and is highly animated in both his moods and his emotional outbursts. He runs away from his memories because many of them are emotionally painful, but he also has a long list of past incidents and encounters that he draws on to reinforce present situations. He can become locked in the past and despondent if he spends too much time there (inferior Si).

Stargate Atlantis: Ronon Dex [ISTP]

Introverted Thinking (Ti): using logic and reason to understand or solve problems, self-discipline and independently managing their lives and personal projects.

Extroverted Sensing (Se): not content with routine and familiar experiences, enjoys physical thrills and new sensations, gathers concrete details and sensory information of the environment by way of the five senses, noticing details other types might miss, and strong visual recall (a “photographic” memory).

Introverted Intuition (Ni): may display some degree of interest in abstract or theoretical topics, able to narrow down life experiences and focus on a goal.

Extroverted Feeling (Fe): can detach from their emotions, desiring public affirmation, seeks to maintain harmony, tries to avoid hurting or offending others, wants everyone to be included, and struggles to understand or articulate their emotions at the right time.

Ronon Dex never shares his thought process with anyone. He is an able problem solver who can easily find logical solutions that others would not think of, to improve his situation (Ti). He’s a very solitary man, but also has a quick sense of humor and the ability to see inconsistencies in other people’s behavior. He hates just sitting around; Ronon needs to be actively doing something. He is quick to spring into action and likes constant physical stimulation – he can be reckless in the field but also highly active at home (Se). If it doesn’t involve an adrenaline rush, he’s not interested.

His ability to assess a problem, consider his surroundings, and fixate on a single temporary goal (Ni) makes him a useful man to have around in a pinch. Ronan only values the life experiences that have taught him useful skills. He’s fairly polite, and good-natured, but has occasional violent outbursts, particularly when the people he cares about are in any way threatened (inferior Fe).
