I've been thinking lately, about how different functions are used when we are learning something. Take reading a book... which functions do we activate when we are engaged in learning about various topics while reading?
For me personally, I can very much see that as I read, I'm looking for values, morals and weighing them out. But what about an INTJ? Do they use Ni while reading? And if so, how does this work?
I wondered this because my INTJ roommate said that when he reads he's often just reading through and doesn't sit to comprehend or make sense of it until he is finished. Once he is finished, he prefers to sit and discuss it, and therefore make use of Te to actually make sense of what he's read. It is in his use of Te that he is actually gaining ideas and making his thoughts.
So what about other functions? Ne/Fi or vice versa... Si/Fe, Ti/Ne, etc, etc.
I know for me, to sit and discuss a book after the fact will often make me feel as though I didn't learn anything at all, as Te is my weakest point.
