They serve as transformative milestones, paving the way for further exploration and investigation into the diverse permutations and manifestations of these cognitive phenomena.

It is crucial to acknowledge the richness and complexity of the topic of compound modes, which merits ongoing exploration and rigorous analysis. As our research advances, our subsequent publications will delve into greater detail, unraveling the intricacies and unveiling the far-reaching implications of these compound modes.

Compound Modes: An Overview

Compound modes arise from developmental processes and materialize through the amalgamation of various mode conjunctions. They function to consolidate a singular mode during foundational development, while incorporating additional modes in more advanced developmental stages. The integration of these modes produces a synergistic effect, augmenting the collective capabilities of individual cognitive modes and yielding a more efficacious and adaptive cognitive system characterized by heightened cognitive dynamics. However, this increased adaptability and dynamics are accompanied by a trade-off in the form of diminished specialization within specific processes. Fundamentally, while cognitive dynamics facilitate a broader distribution of psychic energy and encourage adaptability, specialization focuses on strengthening particular processes at the cost of reduced dynamics and adaptability.

For instance, the Mode of Cognizance can integrate through any pair of opposites within its four conjunctions: Conducting, Revision, Interaction, and Analysis. If it integrates through Conducting and Revision, the subsequent developmental step will involve conjunctions to Interaction or Analysis. This illustrates that compound modes exemplify the evolving nature of development, underscoring the inclusion and exclusion of processes through integration involving opposites.

Exploring the Quasi-Analysis Compound Mode (QII-Pe) 





Extroverted Perception (Pe)

​subjective/irrational Introverted Perception (Pi)

​Introverted Judgment (Ji)

​Extroverted Judgment (Je)

In the hushed folds of cognition, beneath the moon's luminary glow, a secret symphony murmurs - the dance of Cognizance-Revision, or QII-Pe. This ballet materializes from the interaction between the whispering zephyr of Extroverted Perception (Pe), the fluid stories of the moon-kissed river of Introverted Perception (Pi), and the profound silence of the Introverted Judgement (Ji) embodied in the whispering trees.

The zephyr, or Pe, is an unseen bard, scripting the world's narratives on the psyche's parchment under the silent watch of the moon. Its melodies whisper through the cognitive forest, sketching tales from distant lands, echoing the world's enigmatic essence.

When this zephyr carries the whimsical essence of Ne, it waltzes across the cognitive scape, lighting up dark corners with possibilities. It uncovers dreams from their hidden coves, breathing life into ethereal worlds birthed by the heart's silent longing. Conversely, when filled with the fiery rhythm of Se, the zephyr morphs. As tangible as the moon's touch, it roars with the vivid pulse of the present, its gusts passionate declarations of life's unbound energy. Every gust leaves an imprint on the psyche's landscape, asserting the existence of the tangible, raw, and profoundly real.

The moon-kissed river, or Pi, tenderly curates the zephyr's whispers. As the narratives waltz on its surface, the river embraces each, transforming them into luminescent droplets. These droplets, akin to moonstone gems, adorn the cognitive scape, etching a melody of past, present, and future into the psyche's silent heart.

Amid this dreamscape, the Ji trees, solitary scholars, stand tall, partaking in the wisdom of the river. They capture the narratives flowing in the river of Pi, refining these truths into constellations scattered across the forest floor. Each truth is a guiding star, providing a beacon of clarity for the subjective mind to follow.

In this moonlit cognitive forest, the vibrant sun of Extroverted Judgement (Je) finds no place. Its absence amplifies the exploration of the irrational, the subjective, allowing the intricate dance of Pe, Pi, and Ji to unfold under the spectral embrace of the moonlight.

Thus, in the quiet of the introspective forest, the symphony of Cognizance-Revision resonates. An orchestration scarcely perceived beyond the subconscious edge, the notes intertwine in a mesmerizing sequence of whispers and glimmers, ripples and stars. An ode to the eternal ballet of thought and experience, resonating beneath the introspective surface in the shadowy heart of QII-Pe.
