Default Re: The narrow-mindedness of Russian Socionics

Originally posted by time is being:
is it extraverted intuition as a first function that is most valued? gives us this:

1. The 1st is objective and simply mirrors reality, while the 2nd introduces an element of individual interpretation
2. The 1st describes what one does always (or almost always), while the 2nd describes the way the 1st function's program is realized
3. The 2nd describes the areas one works with, while the 1st describes the goal
4. The 1st is the end, the 2nd is the means (this one certainly sounds the neatest!)

with the relationship between the 1st and 2nd functions made a bit clearer, i see no reason to value Ne as a primary function over other functions.
You're absolutely right, there is no reason to value Ne over any other function, but it is often misrepresented as a kind of intellectual/open-mindedness Holy Grail, which is the flawed presumption that I believe Sergei is trying to dispell.
