    I'd say the introverted judging function is better than the extraverted judging function, and the extraverted perceiving function is better than the introverted perceiving function.

    Yeah, that's it...

    Depth and breadth, sure. Power is relative.


    Introverted functions are also more closely related to the past and values. Extroverted ones are more practical and about the present.

    This is pretty lame.

    I definitely see the positives of Fi vs. Fe. I've had thoughts about the introverted vs. extroverted functions. Your application of the basic interesting premise is weak.

    The moment you assume or assert that one function or preference is superior to another instantly shows yourself ignorant and arrogant.

    So neither of you would agree that introverted functions are deeper than extroverted functions?

    Yes. I'd say intro fucntions are deeper and extraverted ones are broader. But both breadth and depth are necessarry. Therefore we all need both our dominant and auxiliary functions. Finding the balance is the key.

    It's obvious beause it's true.

    Since no term was defined, I tried to spin through every non-contextual meaning of powerful that I could think of.

    My conclusion is that the answer is always no.

    It has been decided that deeper is a better term.

    Xi is deeper but that does not equate to being superior.

    Is "deep" superior to "shallow"?
