    Default list of functions in order of awesomeness

    My list of functions in order of awesomeness:

    1 Si: It would feel like the past and the present are actually part of a line. No more differentiation between me and my past selves.

    2 Te: I'm now starting to use this one on daily basis. Its impressive. I can get all my extroverted stuff done. It feels refreshing, like a cold glass of water in summer time.

    3 Fe: It would feel like understanding society from the inside. Like knowing what to said and do and get all the relationships in order. Fe it is the sexiest of the 8 functions.

    4 Ni: Its pretty boring most of the time, but occasionally I get all the views of many people I consider wise (including some of my past selves) right in my head, simultaneously!.

    5 Se: I like it the most because of sexuality. Also sports!

    6 Fi: It makes me like all kinds of music. Also it lets me Know what I really want.

    7 Ne: It makes me feel dissy and makes me take bad decisions.

    8 Ti: It hurts like hell and doesn't works well. Also I'm quite addicted to Ti.

    Si is awesome.
    Sadly I will developed it for the first time around my 80's and Si is all about past experiences so I'm not going to have a good Si record even if I get to test it.

    Ne is #1! :steam:

    If it makes you dizzy, it's because you suck.
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    Ni: No other function creates the sense of wonder and appreciation of mystery like Ni. It is both satisfied and stimulated by ignorance, which includes fanciful thinking.

    Ne: This function knows how to have fun more than any other. It's also the least afraid to show off individuality.

    Fi: Decision making based on personal values. Ultimately, personal values should come first.

    Se: This function seems to always be happy with everything. The use lemons to make lemonade. They're also good at getting themselves out of sticky situations.

    Te: This function is never afraid to run the show -- even if it means stepping on other people's toes.

    Ti: I don't like this function because it takes all the wonder out of life's mysteries. It's the function of the scientific method, which often gets on my nerves.

    Si: I can appreciate conservation to an extent, but this function is also the one that gets offended by words and certain symbols -- it's the type that gets upset with being called an "idiot" and so forth, but doesn't really wonder why the word is so offensive; it's as if they're taught to be offended by the word -- certainly not a free-thinking function. Way too uptight for my tastes.

    Fe: I absolutely cannot stand this function, the nosiest of all functions. I consider Fe the function of PC-ness, hence extremely aggravating.

    Hmm...

    Fi: This function sometimes (rarely) allows me to value what really matters to me, even in spite of other people.

    Ni: This function allows me to analyze a situation from several perspectives.

    Ti: This function keeps my mind alert to errors and inconsistencies, and can even form entire frameworks if necessary.

    Ne: This function finds so many interesting possibilities, but I don't use it well. Other people who do intrigue me, however.

    Fe: Good for helping and considering others, bad because it forces me to value the opinions of society no matter how I want to feel about them.

    Si: Good for stabilizing, bad for creativity.

    Te: This function might be good if it were just used to create efficiency and enforce rules, but mostly it comes across like bullying.

    Se: It's my inferior function, and causes me a lot of grief. Also, it causes people to believe that what they physically sense is all that's real, and all that matters. Nothing could be further from the truth than this one.

    I'm guessing Fe isn't very high on your list.

    Personally, I like Sin functions the best.

    * * * *

    There are some ties here for me.

    1. Ti -- It's how the world makes sense. I am Naming things for what they are. I like to know the essence of things and how they work together to create a whole.
    &
    1. Ne -- I like to see what is realistically possible when I look at something. Can I build that bridge across the gap? Does this pattern suggest another one just beyond my reach?
    &
    1. Ni -- Multiple viewpoints. Paradox exists and is real. It's all a matter of how you place your feet and which direction you're looking in. My pseudo-empathy tool as well: I see through someone else's eyes, as they would see.

    4. Fe -- I'm not very good with spontaneous expressions of emotions, but a controlled expression in a fail-safe way? One that is pleasant and encouraging and gets my true feelings across? It's nice to know what to say and do. And I also know how to signal my displeasure in an undeniable and controlled way, rather than flipping out emotionally and being out of control.

    5. Si -- My internal world. The nostalgic sense. Bittersweet and melancholy. The way things used to be, before time eroded it. It is my memory, it is my keepsake treasure trove, the ornately decorated box in which I hide all the thoughts and feelings and images of my past that I have valued.
    &
    5. Fi -- I don't understand it yet. And my inner feelings have felt dead a long time. What do I value? I don't know. I need to discover it, though. It's why I have been passionless for so long. It will provide Meaning for my life to come.

    7. Se -- Sensation, information, stimulation. Too much is painful, but in controlled settings, when I am expecting it, it could be sensual. I just never let myself go enough to experience it totally.

    8. Te -- The most painful. It's "going by the book" just to finish a job. Whether or not it's the best way, or most efficient way. It's not elegant either, it's 'brute force." It doesn't care to name things for what they are. Everything is a peg being pounded into a hole. But it's still necessary, in order to finish the job.
    "Hey Capa -- We're only stardust." ~ "Sunshine"

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    I just know when to toss it aside.

    1. Ne-I love it!
    2. Fi-I'm not a flake. I know how I feel about people and issues. I like that.
    3. Ti-I have a pretty strong Ti for an ENFP, when I bother to engage it.
    4-8 The others can go in almost any order. They're situational.

    In order of awesomeness (not necessary my own order):

    Se, cause it's fun.
    Ne, cause it's also fun.
    Ti, cause it's useful even though I over-rely on it.
    Ni, cause it's...I have no idea really. But it can be interesting.
    Te, cause I'll grudgingly admit it's useful too even though I suck balls at it.
    Si is ok I guess, if you're into that kind of thing.
    And Fe and Fi are both kinda meh.

    Se and Si and Ni simultaneously without your head exploding would own all.

    Ne makes me annoyed of myself after a while.

    I'm going to make my first post here in lieu of the introductions page, as this thread has prompted the most interest to me, and I think it will give you an idea where I'm coming from.

    1. Ne - This allows the flights of fancy that I enjoy on my own during many evenings. When put to more practical use (N practical?), it comes in handy on the job, where I spend my days predicting an uncertain future (I'm an actuary). I don't deal with direct reality, just a theoretical model of it. Who needs TV/pop-culture when you can create your own worlds?

    1. Ni - A tie with Ne, as this also allows flights of fancy, but more about the person I could transform into, rather than a broader, less personal transformation.

    3. Se - I spent seven years as a college basketball coach before becoming an actuary. While I was drawn to the Xs and Os/strategy part of the game as well as efficient teaching and training methods, I always marveled at the ability of many of my players to be "in the moment" and able to respond unhesitatingly in pressure situations. I would not want a large dose of this for myself, but I'd love to have a switch that allowed me to use it for select scenarios.

    4. Ti - At some point decisions have to be made, and when they do, there needs to be a consistent process for doing so. I don't like being told what to do, so I'd rather create my own framework than rely on an external one.

    5. Te - At some point my decisions have to put into action, and I'd prefer a rational plan to an irrational one.

    6. Fi - I find this fascinating in my closest friend (INFP) and my all-time biggest crush (ENFP). Some aspects of their personal moralities may seem odd and contradictory to me at times, but their passion for them is intoxicating.

    7. Si - When I need to unwind and veg out, I have two ISTJ friends whose predictability is the comfort food of friendship. Under any other conditions, however, they bore me to tears or frustrate me with their pointless rigidity. Seeking stability means ignoring potential.

    8. Fe - As a person who strives for individuality and autonomy, the seeking out of 'shared values' is totally foreign to me, and I'd like to keep it that way.

    Se - because it's the definition of fun. Dancing, Stimulation, Sex, Downhill biking, etc

    Ni - because if we don't know where we're heading, we're heading for disaster

    Te - we have to gain money if we want to head somewhere and have fun in the process

    Fi - without somebody to share with all the fun and the money, life would be worthless

    Fe - I don't really understand this function that well

    Si - Same as above

    Ne - it's useful, but I don't find it "fun"

    Ti - logical consistency in actions is necessary for trust to be build in relationships
