    Default Cognitive Processes -- Some Questions

    What does your last function mean? I'm..

    Ne Ti Fe Si

    Does that mean I use Si too?
    Would I more likely use Se or Si?

    Also..

    Cognitive Process Level of Development (Preference, Skill and Frequency of Use)
    extraverted Sensing (Se) ***************************************** (41.8)
    excellent use
    introverted Sensing (Si) ************* (13.2)

    introverted Intuiting (Ni) ***************************************** (41.4)

    extraverted Feeling (Fe) *** (3.9)
    unused
    introverted Feeling (Fi) ************************** (26.3)

    Is it normal for an NT to be high in Ni, Ne, Ti, + Te?
    What does that mean?

    Your last function is your inferior. Often the inferior is so obscured by the dominant function that the Se "shadow" of Ne is stronger than the inferior Si.

    That's one pattern that often emerges in people, in addition to the normal one.

    Ne Ni Te Ti

    The Ti is bent outwards by your Ne, strengthening your Te as well. You've probably had some pressures to develop Te, and that was the result. So your pattern is fairly normal, even if it's not perfectly normal.

    Also, it's common for people to possess skill in the Introverted/Extroverted versions of both their functions, but not all are. For instance, I have strong Fe, but weak Fi.

    This test is good for identifying ways you are different from your type, but it should be taken with a grain of salt because there are some critical inadequacies in that test.

    Oh okay sweet. Since my Si is last, Se is stronger.
    Since my Fe is third, Fi is stronger.

    What exactly does shadow mean? It's not a bad thing?

    It means it takes place unconsciously rather than consciously... it can be bad if you allow your shadow to run things in your life too much, because your dominant and auxiliary are supposed to do that. Most of the time, using a shadow function isn't a bad thing, though.

    Wow. Thanks, that might've cleared up another thing for me;

    When I was little I was an INTJ... needless to say I had an unhealthy family situation at the time. When that cleared up I stopped using my shadow processes and starting using my real ones.. making me an ENTP now. So, in theory, that supports the cognitive processes' roles. Cool!

    The last function is the least function in order.
    Not your function.

    Fi > Fe = Se > Si

    My Ne/Ni + Te/Ti are also very close. I've never seen such a low Fe! I thought 10 was 'unused'.

    Really.
