Cognition as Phenomenology The world as it appears before us (our phenomenology) comes with implicit ontological assumptions that are predicated on our functions and functional hierarchy. Now, this phenomenology is pre-epistemic, so a person’s learned epistemic viewpoint may actually be at odds with their phenomenological reality. Cognitive type is pre-thought, which means that thoughts, as […]Continue reading "Hierarchy as Ontological Priority"
The Metabolic Principle The metabolic principle states that any idea or thought can be arrived at through the combined use of all energetic quadrants (Je/Ji/Pe/Pi) and four attitudes (T/F/N/S) when used in an individual, whether they’re coming from Alpha/Beta/Gamma/Delta. Each quadrant has all faculties available for the creation of any point of view. There is […]Continue reading "Metabolism: Practice Principles"
Metabolism of Function Quadrants This article builds up from the previous four articles, but also begins to tread slightly into the territory of behaviors by explaining more complex phenomenon resulting from compounded properties. Thus it may be a bit more gestalt than the rest. The terms used to describe these compound properties are not to […]Continue reading "Metabolism: Function Quadrants"
Metabolism of P Functions Information Properties Definitions S Short Cycle of Decay (Real-Time) A short cycle of decay means that the information properties vanish from awareness after a brief amount of time. Thoughts go in and go out. The moment transpires and refreshes the “frames” of reference suspended in consciousness. This eliminates previous observations and […]Continue reading "Metabolism: P Functions"
Metabolism of J Functions X Subject Y Object #1 Z Object #2 * Emotional Register Equation Description Ti Y:Y Any object (Y) is evaluated against itself (Y) without the emotional register associated. Te Y:Z Any object (Y) is evaluated against any other object (Z) without the emotional register associated. Fi X*:Y* The subject (X) is […]Continue reading "Metabolism: J Functions"

Information Metabolism The following chapter has been imported from the Cognitive Type book and made freely available online. It provides a technical explanation for the information metabolism that define each core element of the model, independent of any behaviors. Type, as you’ll read below, is a cognitive equation capable of producing infinite (although thematically linked) […]Continue reading "Metabolism: Overview"
