    How would a healthy se work in an INJ?

    Cool; I was wondering if inferior Se would fit me less than Fe, but this is about as accurate. I'm thinking INFJ is in fact a good choice. I suppose the inferior Fe resemblance is due to auxiliary Fe overreacting in the grip of stress and looking like a super inferior function (because under stress nothing works optimally).

    Thanks for posting; this was a very informative read, and I can't seem to find good information elsewhere.

    This is really me actually. But inferior Fi fits me more.
    I really like cats and food.

    This was really interesting, I could relate to a lot of it especially the overindulging bit. I need to read more books likes this...

    The Form of the Inferior Function


    Table 12
    Dominant and Inferior Expressions of Extraverted Sensing
    As Dominant Function of As Inferior Function of:

    ESTPs and ESFPs
    � Focus on external data
    � Seeking sensual/aesthetic pleasure
    � Delight in the outer world

    INTJs and INFJs
    � Obsessive focus on external data
    � Overindulgence in sensual pleasure
    � Adversarial attitude toward the outer world
    This is interesting. Does this mean that INTJs (who are weak in Se) shouldn't aim to use their Se? I once read an analogy comparing cognitive functions to right-left handedness. Thus, if you have a weak function, it's like a natural right-hander writing with his left hand - it's not easy or natural but can be done with lots of focus. I thought you could develop such a weak function by practising it (like practising writing with the left hand) - but if it manifests in such a negative way then is it better for INTJs not to use it after all?
