MBTI or cognitive preference does not imply a strength. If someone prefers Ne or Te, it doesn't mean that it's well developed. On the same token, the MBTI profiles consistently describe what each type is good at as well as their weaknesses. An example would be "NTs are good at strategic planning" or "NFs are empathetic".
These things seem contradictory.
There are a few possibilities I can think of:
- The profiles are bad/wrong
- cognitive preferences do lead to strengths because a person prefers to think a certain way and do it a lot
- cognitive preferences do lead to strengths because a person has greater natural ability for certain things
Any thoughts on this? Any opinions on the relationship between those three things (type, ability, strength)?
