F would obviously be useless as dom/aux, but that tert Fi striving to gain for self(as opposed to others) would become handy.

    i think ENTPs would be pretty much on par with INTJs, except that INTJ might be more patient and not make so much rash decisions or take risks on things like when to start chasing fast, which obviously has a risk of you tiring yourself out and not being able to continue tiring down the pray in constant phase.

    also i think many INTJs suffer from add(and/or try to find stimulation from fast phased computer games) for this exact reason that they are missing this sort of hands on doing(to which they developed in evolution). also i discussed about this few times with my INTJ friend(who doesent care to know what INTJ is) and we both came to the conclusion that his temperament fits better living in the woods as people lived in neanderthal times.
    Just because we might like them all to go live in the woods, doesn't mean they'd survive.

    I don't agree with your ideas about the efficacy of inferior functions, obviously.

    Types in the Wild

    INTJ Bear Grylls -- drinks own piss
    INTP Bear Grylls -- needing a more complete sample, drinks everyone else's piss, banished as a glutton.
    Bellison uncorked a flood of horrible profanity, which, translated, meant, "This is extremely unusual."

    I think an INTP would stall and come up with something far more ingenious than drinking urine.

    Well sure. A thorough study of the types and varieties. Only a clod would simply drink it off. The connoisseur partakes.

    Then you're simply mistaken. Some ideas will be unrealistic and impractical, others won't. Otherwise these functions would have absolutely no use.

    Blood is more nutritious.

    And you don't need to go down to the woods to see INTJs drinking their own piss.

    How about piss and blood? Electrolytes, iron.. everything a good boy (or girl) needs.

    "We uze all ur funzionz" actually makes sense that way.
    I agree.

    My point was about N-doms or aux though. These are characterized by a preference for abstract thinking, which would seem a disadvantage in those scenarios I described.

    Sure. If your intention is to troll. Otherwise, it detracts from your question. As such, a sincere poster would find it undesirable.
    Fe in the support of Ti, trying to avoid unnecessarry conflict so that Ti can establish truth for utilitarian benefit according to a framework of humanist principles provided by Fe.

    But in any case, barbarism is the correct word to use.

    As I have already said, Intuition obviously developed because it was advantageous to survival. Evolution doesn't squander resources developing traits which remain dormant. Lateral thinking is useful in a wide range of situations. Man is, has always been, a social animal, and almost uniquely, one who employs division of labour to great advantage. It's not difficult to imagine individuals with great story-telling ability, spirituality, foresight, etc, finding and exploiting a niche, even if they are not the best hunters or gatherers.
    It's hard for me to imagine how 30% of the society could live like that, especially in societies where your birth determined your occupation.

    Like I said about pushing people out of their comfort zone earlier.. anyone can commit to unlikely activities, if necessary. MBTI was designed to only describe types as Preferences. Myers was appalled when she saw companies firing people for their test results. It wasn't meant to describe people in their totality.
