    The question wasnt which is useless, it was which is MORE useless relative to others. If you want to insult a thread you might want to read what its about first and take a moment to mull it over.

    Your mama's function.

    EDIT: Honest answer. In the absence of any of the functions humans become dysfunctional and society goes to hell in a hand basket. With that, I find it hard to say if there is really any that is less useful.

    I reckon the extraverted functions are the most useful.

    I understood the question, but it's unanswerable. All functions are more or less equally useful in their own way.

    By definition, Fi is the most useless function. Fi double checks for anything that is simply unconscionable, regardless of cause/effect, results or bottom line "success".

    Almost by definition, Fi is the function most opposed to being useful. So now we must ask, how useful is the "unconcionable alarm system"? I think its rather easily replaced by properly functioning Fe and Ti working together...

    Without Fi we have no sense of self. We have no sense of enjoyment, nor most of what makes us human.
