Abstract: A function f from a complete and separable metric space X into the real numbers is of Baire class 1 iff for every nonempty perfect subset H of X, $ f\vert H$ contains a point where $ f\vert H$ is continuous. This paper examines a similar idea obtained by changing ``perfect subset H'' to ``union of a countable collection of perfect subsets'' in the preceding characterization of Baire class 1 functions. This new idea is also characterized by using ``condensation points'' and ``totally imperfect sets.'' Functions of this new type are of Baire class 1. However, the converse is false.
