    Default Easy Function Descriptions! Totally legit! Figure out your true type! etc.

    You see a your best friend's girlfriend kissing another guy.

    Fi: Could I see myself doing that?
    Fe: I can't believe she did that! How disgusting!

    Ti: Was there a reason she did that?
    Te: That's not how people in relationships are supposed to act!

    Si: Hm, maybe that's why she changed her makeup recently.
    Se: I need to get closer to hear what they're saying!

    Ni: I knew she'd do something like this.
    Ne: I bet that guy gave her that new necklace and started screwing her behind Matt's back.

    I could be completely off-base here with these descriptions, but that's how I see each type given that circumstance.

    Say you're an INFP, you would act in the following order:

    Would I do something like that? (Hell no!) then:
    I wonder why she did that? Maybe he's just a friend..? But..
    I bet that's why she's been changing her makeup lately!
    That's not how people in relationships are supposed to act!

    . I am not saying all INFPs would react in the same way. Let's take a look at an ISFP for comparison!

    Would I do something like that?
    I need to see this for myself, I'll just nudge a little closer...
    I always knew she was going to cheat on him... I should have said something before.
    This isn't how people in relationships are supposed to act!
    "Can you set me free from this dark inner world? Save me now, last beats in the soul.."

    Fonewearl and proud of it!

    I liked that, it was easy on the brain.

    Except the stuff in parenthesis, that's not my Fi.

    Yeah, looking over it, that's not really Fi, but Fe. I was just going off of how people can subconsciously react to things. I'd better clarify that.

    Wow, that's surprisingly good

    The Se/Ne thing doesn't quite fit for me, but that might be a balance issue. Each is probably more accurate the stronger the preference is.

    Not to rain on the parade but, "Se: I need to see this for myself." Did I miss something, I thought the person was seeing it directly. If so, then should this not be changed to say how a Se type would respond to witnessing the matter?

    Funny, it does chalk up pretty close to my cog function test.

    Ti: Was there a reason she did that?
    Ni: I knew she'd do something like this.
    Ne: I wonder why she did something like this?
    Fe: I can't believe she did that! How disgusting!
    Fi: Could I see myself doing that?
    Se: I need to see this for myself.
    Te: That's not how people in relationships are supposed to act!
    Si: Hm, maybe that's why she changed her makeup recently.

    Again, why is the other seven functions responding directly to witnessing the matter, but the Se function is responding as though they did not see it for themselves?

    Pretty interesting. We need more threads/scenarios in the same vein to distill.

    I took it in the generalised sense that we need to discover it for ourselves. Maybe I'm projecting my own nature here, but when I Ti ask (in the definition above), "see for myself" means that I need to see the foundation of it - data, normally. I inherently distrust "Ne" conclusions. I would say that Ne is more like "she might of done it for any number of reasons", which is how I took it in the OP.

    Although, the Se-Ne still doesn't seem to grab the nuanced difference between them.
