"How dreadful!" cried Lord Henry. "I can stand brute force, but brute reason is quite unbearable. There is something unfair about its use. It is hitting below the intellect." ~ Oscar Wilde - The picture of Dorian Gray
You have an air of pragmatism, but as explained in your other thread, that's because of the 6 wing over the 4 wing. You also seem sort of distant when it comes to people, yet you want to get closer to them. People appreciate your efforts to get close and generally take them as a cue for them to trust you more and to want to get closer.
I could give you a much better analysis if I were fully awake. But alas I went to the gym today, and worked out for ~2 hours straight. And I went to class. And I'm tired.
I should start a thread- "BlackCat reads your vibes".
Anyone who knows what "5w6 sp/so" means could have figured that out. :p
If a deaf INFP falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?
Where do we get the order and direction of the tertiary and inferior functions?
For example, typical INTP function order is supposedly Ti - Ne - Si - Fe. Myers mentiones the two inferior functions (in the case of the INTP, S and F) in "Gifts Differing," but does not say anything about in which order they appear or where they are directed (introverted/extroverted).
Also, since extroverted and introverted versions of a function are the same function, just directed toward different things, do you think each function could have different levels of introversion/extroversion? I'll give you a visual. Take the intuition function, for example.
Instead of a strict division...
Ne | Ni
... could it be a continuum...
N e ------------------- i
with the behavior of the function lying anywhere between "e" and "i"?
I should probably mention I am simply tossing out an idea and asking for your perspective, not asking for a definitive answer.
This is my thought. Or, at least, there's gotta be some explanation as to why those dominant in one attitude (I/E) of a particular function are usually adept at using the function in the opposite attitude as well.
