The Dominant Function

ā† The Cognitive Functions

Of the 8 functions, each person has one that dominates our psyche.

It’s wired into our neurology like being right or left handed.

This is the lens through which we see the world.

It affects oh…. just about everything in our lives.

Few people ever learn about this, yet I think it’s one of the most profound insights we’ve had about ourselves as a species.

It’s like water to a fish.

How does a fish know what water is?
