It does. Our minds work in certain steps to conclude what we do.As a system of 8 cognitive functions, organized along two sets of dichotomy [E&I] [T&F,S&N] which form types through preferential order, it doesn't work.
Everyone has their own set standards of the different variations of the way we apportion our thoughts and actions. The preferred of one's movement towards how one executes externally will be derived from a judging function or perceiving function. They are opposed to each other therefore one can only be one or the other as one's first step towards the concluded action. Within the judging function lies the feeling/thinking preference. Which one you prefer depends on your personality's preference. Within the perceiving lies the intuition/sensing preference. And the same goes for such.
Then you have whether you judge or perceive externally or internally. One will be dominant of a person in what they feel comfortable using.
But why? The order of the cognitive function appear in the natural way a human functions. It would take a while to explain the reasoning why we use functions in the order of eiei/ieie and jpjp/pjpj. But there would be a disruption (slight or big) in the human's natural thought processes if the orders were otherwise during normal events.Even accepting the existence of the cognitive functions as named in MBTI, each function is so essential to cognition that the idea of preference is absurd.
It is impossible to use Te and Fe at the same point in time because they follow the same linear scale as opposing ends. Similar, is Te and Ti on a different scale. However Te and Fi are on no same scale so it is quite a different matter. All other functions work in the same way.No one is using any function more than anyone else, we are all necessarily using every function simultaneously at every time.
So what you say cannot be true. We as human beings individually prefer one thing over another subconsciously and/or consciously. It is the same for process of thought. We prefer one process of thought in contrary to another (even if we do use the other) therefore we will always have a preference of something over something else.
It is the same as the physical things we like. I like eating broccoli. I have a friend who despises eating broccoli. However I have the ability to not eat broccoli and my friend has to ability to eat it.
I'd like to have a look at Fe. A function that wishes for the peaceful environment. Cut the tension. Keep things moving naturally and peacefully. A function of harmony. Would it require more effort for you to go out and try and create a peaceful environment wherever you settle and prevent others from shouting each other's mouths out? Why not every argument you go into you try getting the other guy to relax and calm down? Perhaps help people who need help? Im quite sure it would require more effort for you to do such actions than a more naturally inclined Fe user.No one is more skilled in the use of a function than anyone else, functions are inherent to consciousness. Better at reasoning is not better at thinking.
Again this goes back to why the ordering of the functions are the way they are. It would take a wall of text to explain such.A preferential ordering of functions can't describe the different personality types which exist obviously and necessarily (as much as the colour green exists) because there is no such thing as function preference.
