Through my new system of typology the sixteen Myers Briggs Personality Types are studied and contrasted against modern psychology and more in particular the study of flow. Let’s dig in to what that means!

These are the eight jungian cognitive functions!

ENFP and ISTJ Flow Functions

Extroverted iNtuition (Ne)

Trying to create a world where people will be happier and where people will feel better.

Extroverted Feeling (Fe)

ISFJ Personality Type (Si and Fi)

Introverted Sensing (Si)

Figuring out the “key to happiness” and what you want and need to feel whole and complete as a person.

Introverted Feeling (Fi)

Trying to understand your feelings and values by connecting them to your past experiences and your upbringing.

The cognitive functions change based on what personality type is using them – the cognitive functions will blend together with one another making it hard for a type to separate between where one cognitive function begins and one ends.

Erik Thor (INFJ)

How I became the smiling melancholic

My name is Erik Thor and I am an INFJ living in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. I’ve been studying personality psychology for more than nine years now. Using the flow type approach, I’ve redesigned the Myers Briggs Type Indicator and Carl Jung’s theories on the eight cognitive functions.

My goal was to connect these fascinating theories to the study of flow and happiness. Who are we when happy? What do we need to have more flow and energy? Using my insights, I try to help people better their relationships. I hope to help you connect more deeply to others, to find more meaning in life, and to have more success at work.
