Late last year, I submitted a video for analysis to the team at CognitiveType.com. I would have shared the results of my analysis sooner, but I didn’t want to attract too much attention to the site until video submissions were open again to the public. The founder of Cognitive Type (CT) was quite accommodating of the occasional wanderer who found their way into the forum or discord server, even offering the occasional complimentary analysis, but he wasn’t quite ready for the entire world ;p I also needed some time to process the results of my analysis on my own, to be sure I understood and was comfortable with my type. Having previously tried on nearly every possible Jungian-based type, sometimes changing my mind only weeks later, I needed to be relatively confident before making an announcement lest I come across as fickle yet again. lol.
It turns out, I am NeFi! Not to be confused with mbti ENFP, though it’s the same set of functions. Many of the NeFi’s in CT type as INFP in MBTI, while many FiNe’s type as INFJs (see this forum thread for an explanation). Also differentiating CT from other Jungian-based systems is development level, which refers to which functions in the stack are fully conscious. My full CT type is NeFi lll-, which means that I have the first three functions of an NeFi, Ne-Fi-Te, developed and explains why I typed variably as both T and F in MBTI. In CT, it is also possible to be polarized, having both first and last functions conscious and making a direct mapping over to MBTI even more impossible. The development level is not static, and can change over time, but it takes a significant change in one’s life to prompt a function to come or go from consciousness.
Because I was analyzed as a test subject before the site went fully public, I didn’t receive the extra-detailed report that currently comes with a CT analysis. I’ll probably make a couple of new videos and submit them just for that report sometime in the future. For now, I’ve already spent too much money sending in videos to get most of my family typed XD
For anyone interested, there is currently a promotional price of $29.99 for an analysis. I don’t know for how much longer this will be. This price is for the first 100 submissions and I know there have already been several since it went public.
UPDATE: I have submitted new videos and received my full typing report. I am still NeFi lll-
