    This makes your inferior function Te. I wouldn't be surprised if you have often failed to live up to many of the contracts of the social structure, and justified it with your tertiary Ni by saying that it is all a shallow, dehumanizing lie. In reality though perhaps you regret missing the countless opportunities to succeed that you've missed.

    Maybe I'm right, maybe I'm wrong, but MBTI tells us that this is a problem for ISFPs in general, and knowing this could help you recognize it in yourself.

    Well, that's my 2 cents.
    There it is.

    To the OP/wolfy. You've posted some things regarding thinking alot, or something like you couln't stop thinking, a few weeks back. This could be maximized Te maturity.

    That didn't really answer the question though.
    everyone uses every function about evenly. take NE for example. if there are those who don't use it much, then why are there such massive amounts of people constantly flowing through Wallmart with 20 items or less?

    You can mess up your head with it.
    And you can read up on other types and functions to be able to relate to those you don't really relate to right now.

    You can play stereotype-type.
    You can make small toy soldiers and play they each have a type and try to remake what you think another type might communicate. xD

    You can play the game "I know my type, I look for spec. [xxxx] type, is that you?...".
    You can... play doctor.
    You can write poems about it, as well as essays, articles etc. And perhaps you might be able to breach new ground without even wishing it would be so, but you do.

    You can... write a book and hit someone with it. To make them acknowledge you. Ummmmmmmm.

    I can't think of much more that isn't already said. Honestly, there's loads of uses and all you need to do is find them.
    Open for interpretation.

    Maybe in your maturity of being ISFP, you've gained some ENTJ qualities. Could try to find out some qualities of a 20 year old ENTJ and exploit them first for a brief period. That will give you the hang of what one can do with preferences, then reflect back on your life as an ISFP and try to apply those 'other qualities'.

    But that's still intuitive theoretical stuff coming out of the soup cooler of an intuitive. As of late i've taken tests again and one came up ENFJ.

    Could try to fake it. Fake like you know what you can do with it. Kinda like going in reverse. Walk about as if you do know what to do with it. That's a tough question in that title.

    'other qualities' as in the original qualities of ISFP.

    You can always take one of those quasi-MBTI quizzes on Facebook and then post the results to your page. At least that seems to be what my friends have been doing lately...now that they have all tired of "25 Random Things About Me."

    True that!
    Knowledge for fun is application.

    Moving on... It's mostly personal development, and social interaction understanding. It's basic psychology.

    You can act like you can read minds.

    The whole thing is really to broad. Surface level drilling, I'd like to drill a little deeper and find some real constraints, some real weaknesses and some real solid specific strengths.

    I don't much care for surface level drilling either.
    MBTI is a classic example of the Barnum effect.
