I was wondering if types with opposite 1st and 4th dominant functions would be likely to misunderstand and distrust each other more than other types with opposite functions appearing in any other hierachy.
I'm an INTP (1st Ti and 4th Fe). I do understand Fe but both using it and receiving it exhausts me quickly so my understanding probably doesn't equal the same genuine joy and appreciation as ESFJs/ENFJs (1st Fe and 4th Ti) experience when using and receiving Fe.
I could imagine ESFJs/ENFJs experience the same when using Ti. An understanding combined with a "cool function...great to use if you wish to analyze... but so what?" Perhaps it is the understanding combined with a relative lack of appreciation which can seem offensive. Sort of like - "You disregard what I value the most!".
Below, I listed types with 1st and 4th opposite dominant functions. It was the Fe threads which made me wonder if it the dominant presence of INTPs on this board had anything to do with Fe being disregarded. I also wonder if other types experience the same with their 1st and 4th function opposite types.
ENTJ/ESTJ: 1st Te 4th Fi.
INFP/ISFP: 1st Fi 4th Te.
INTP/ISTP: 1st Ti 4th Fe.
ENFJ/ESFJ: 1st Fe 4th Ti.
ESTP/ESFP: 1st Se 4th Ni.
INTJ/INFJ: 1st Ni 4th Se.
ISTJ/ISFJ: 1st Si 4th Ne.
ENTP/ENFP: 1st Ne 4th Si.
