    For learning, definitely reading and writing work better for me. Someone telling/lecturing information is tougher for me to process. Doing works, but often I feel uncomfortable if I can't also take notes.

    For decision making, it depends on how much time I have. If I have a lot, I research, make pros and cons lists, etc. (I did well on tests where one had to show their work at arriving at an answer.) If it's split second, I use prior experience with like situations.

    However, there's a part of me that can also just be a goof. Like, "I'm leaving," hand keys to someone I trust to sell my stuff, get in the car, and set up residence 2000 miles away. Half my family were left handed, so perhaps I sometimes channel them.

    My thoughts are almost all based around words. I think visually, but using words and patterns. If you ask me to think of a car, I'll think of the word "car" (or "coche", "vehiculo", "voiture" or "auto") before I see a car. When thinking about directions, numbers/calculations, objects, people, actions... I see the word first and think in terms of words, before "translating" into images.

    Myers-Briggs is absolute garbage. It was created during WWII so that more people would get jobs.

    I really don't know. I've never met someone else who seems to think or learn the way that I do (but I have Executive Functioning Disorder, even other people with it don't seem to think like me). I'm a visual & touch learner, combined. I need to see things, but anything phsyical and I need someone to physically guide me so I can learn it (comfortably). I love reading, but textbooks are impossible for me to read. I rarely feel like I ever understand entirely what's going on (in general).

    Can someone post the actual modes of thought and descriptions?

    I usually need to start with like, the conclusion, and have to keep the conclusion in mind while exploring the contributing elements.
    "Ah, those endless forests, and their horror-haunted gloom! For what eternities have I wandered through them, a timid, hunted creature, starting at the least sound, frightened of my own shadow, keyed-up, ever alert and vigilant, ready on the instant to dash away in mad flight for my life. For I was the prey of all manner of fierce life that dwelt in the forest, and it was in ecstasies of fear that I fled before the hunting monsters."

    People think in roughly 5 ways:
    1. Faith
    2. Authority
    3. Intuition
    4. Rational/Logical
    5. Empirical

    More can be added at the top of the list that are near synonyms with "faith" and "authority".
    Fair enough, but we're talking about different things here, not Modes of active, conscious thought. For example, Faith and Authority use the Legalistic mode of thought, in which the basic rules would come from religion or the specific authority selected.

    I thought I did. Maybe reread the first comment and the reply to sbhikes. Anyway, I can't find the book now. I'd have to do a whole cleaning of my library. It does need it but I don't have the energy.

    Alas, although I've taken Myers Briggs many times, I make it come out differently each time, depending upon my mood. I can also do this purposively.
