Given that all introverts have one of four functions as their dominant:
- Introverted Sensing
- Introverted Intuition
- Introverted Feeling
- Introverted Thinking
Do you believe a lot of extraverts or people in general stereotype introversion toward a certain function, given its nature? I was thinking about this the other day. I had a feeling that the general public might correlate introversion with the nature of Introverted Feeling or Introverted Intuition, given the type of no holds barred depth that it has.
I mean, Introverted Sensing is focusing on the past, and an ISxJ's inner life is going to be focused on what they know. An IxTP's introverted function, Ti, is focused more on understanding things by establishing an internal ruleset. However, Introverted Intuition and Feeling are functions that go against the norms the most, intuition mostly, because of its nature of looking outside of the box.
I was just wondering about this when thinking about the inner life of an INxx or IxFP compared to an ISxJ. It just seems like the ISxJ stays in their head, but maintains sensational impressions rather than abstractions or depth of feeling to give off that off the wall vibe. Do you think other people, when they try to think of an introvert's inner life, they tend to think of it more toward Ni or Fi?
