    Default Which Functions Conflict The Most?

    Ti and Te.
    Fi and Fe.
    Si and Se.
    Ni and Ne.

    These function pairs just don't get along when acting as dominants in two different people respectively.

    For example, Ti and Te doms are constantly at war with each other. The relationship could be characterized as nerds vs. bullies. Fe doesn't bother Ti nearly as much as Te. Fe may only seem annoying to them in comparison. Fi and Fe I've heard tend to quarrel over matters, but I'm not sure why.

    Si and Se - I've seen Se react strongly against Si, but I don't know why. And I don't know what kind of sparks fly between Ni vs. Ne.

    Looking for answers here...

    Does that mean you would fight a lot with someone with all opposite functions?

    All opposite? No, just with people of the opposite dominant function in terms of attitude (Te vs. Ti).

    I've heard it said that Fi views Fe as being fake, ostentatious with their affection, meddlesome, and intrusive. Perhaps Fe views Fi as cold and undemonstrative?
    I like both Fi and Fe types, but Fi can be temperamental and inscrutable, and Fe can be unreasonable (well, everyone can I suppose).

    Si can clash with Se if the Se person is too aggressive; Si is more self contained and self preserving, and probably more sensitive to sensory stimuli if the person is an introvert. I'm not sure why Se would clash with Si.

    I haven't had any problems with Ne types unless they don't listen to me; Ni types can just be really confusing, often on purpose. At least INTJ's can. They like to turn people's thinking upside down.

    All the Te and Ti types I've met irl life I've gotten along fine with as far as I know. Sometimes authority figures who primarily use Te can annoy a Ti type by not giving explanation for procedures. I know Te types have a problem with indecisive people, whatever their type.

    So does anybody out there have information on personalities that naturally conflict, such as Ni and Ne, Te and Ti...?

    Not information, no but can I use conjecture?

    That's my main issue with Te... throwing things out just because they are conjecture or speculation. How do you form theories about the world if you can't speculate? Yeah, maybe they won't always end up being accurate, but when that's shown to be the case, just throw the theory out and make a new one. Te is always saying ""this is not the place for conjecture or speculation," as though nothing of value can come out of that.

    I don't really see Te users as bullies, just as too intellectually cautious on occasion. Though, that definitely has its uses. Perhaps even in a court of law.

    I also think real-life INTJs think I'm a flake at first, because I'm so absent-minded. They seem to revise their opinion once they get to know me better.

    I'm not stereotyping Te-doms as bullies. Nor am I saying that these types can't get along and understand one another. I'm saying that a natural animosity exists between them.

    If we want to pinpoint a general rule that applies to all function pairs, i guess we could say that normally it is the introverted side of the function that gets annoyed at the extraverted side.

    In more particular terms, as an Ne-dom I have a lot of Ni-dom friends and we get along quite well and can bounce off each other etc. Some times it has happened that some of them have become insufferable at my constant change in subject (which is not a real change, it's always connected in my head). But that's more or less it.
    I could also complain about Fe-dom people as an Fi-aux but that's been overstated here, so...

    Yea Te has a tendency to want to be efficient. And in doing so, it doesn't want to make mistakes. Therefore just speculating can be annoying because it's a little more action oriented.

    I don't know about animosity. I find Ti to just not useful in most cases because Te just drives people to action
