for example, if you know you have Fe, Si, Ne & Ti, your 4 options would be ESFJ/ISFJ/ENTP/INTP, so given the order is left unknown, you would still know nothing about your letters, since ESFJ and INTP don't share any letters at all (but have the same functions).

so just from not knowing the order, it would basically be xxxx. or exsexsexsex... which means your ex has hooked up 3 times since the breakup. and that's just salt on open wounds man. why bring that up? why?! ok moving on...

now let's say you know the functions, but not the order, but you do know the order within your judgement functions and/or within your perception functions, let's say you know that your Ti is greater then your Fe, in that case the only place you can have an X is in the start (xNTP).

and among those functions, if you know the place of at least one of those functions, for example which function is dominant, or which one is inferior, then you know your entire MBTI type.

if you know the order but not the functions, you would have two X's, for example if you know that your N>T>F>S you would have xNTx, or if you know your S>F>T>N, you would have xSFx. knowing one letter would tell you the other.

i just don't see any one missing variable where you can have an X anywhere else but the start (except, you know, 3rd marriages, but they have a divorce rate higher then 70%)
