    S tells you that something is
    T tells you what it is
    F tells you what it is worth
    N tells you where it came from and where it is going

    Se - Facts and details experienced in the moment through ur senses, directly in your face, without measure and very, very nuance.
    Si - Facts and details much like Se but screened for perceptual saliency and compared to what one has experienced before. In a way, SJ's sense twice but their perception of sensing is more shallow with regards to the texture of what is being sensed.

    Ti - Either truth or falsehood, binary, when combined becoming more complex structures, such as IF/THEN statements, and so on, I'm sure.
    Te - Appealing to externalized array of impersonal data, such as Law, Statistics, Contracts. Very shallow, underspecified and even vague logic that requires special knowledge of the terminology at times to properly understand what they're saying. Much more physical or positional logic. I feel like terms, like 'confluence' and 'coalescence', are very Te. Ti is more contradistinctive in its terminology.

    Ne - All over the place, beautiful, mysterious and unique. Useful in its ability to think of a very broad number of hypothetical scenarios.
    Ni - Conceptual distinction; I feel like Ni, very often not having a voice of its own, seeks to illustrate these distinctions in a collage-like way, using examples from Se and juxtaposing them. I feel like implication is an Ni concept.

    Fe - Accountability to others. A strong, intense focus on others reactions. A desire to do right by everyone. Reciprocity. Schedules of meetings in-person.
    Fi - Sometimes overly-sensitive but with an acute and clear understanding of what they enjoy and what makes them them. Perhaps Fi is like Ti in the sense of being binary. Maybe the concepts of 'good' and 'bad', 'favorable'/'unfavorable', originate with this function.

    I really like the one-word answer one btw
    "... you think deeply about stuff [that] nobody cares about and hardly anybody can understand you." ~ Peguy talking about Ni users. So true.

    I actually think I identify most with Fi, Si and Ne based on this. Maybe I just don't fully grasp Ti. I certainly intellectualize things, trying to understand their essence but I don't really see myself putting a value judgement on it, which I see as an F thing. On the other hand I do put value judgements on social and moral type things.
