And life intervenes here, influencing those other functions. In short, there can be no set line-up per type, though there might be patterns, yes. There are always patterns and averages.
    Well NiFi are everyones functions in socionics(and in some socionics like type theories like beebes archetype theory), but not in MBTI or in jungian typology. In jungs theory NTSF are the functions of everyone and different types come from I/E of these functions and preferences to habitually use one or two of these functions over other functions.

    Functions exist in the psyche even before they are developed to the point that their contents reach consciousness. If we are talking about averages of function development, its usually more like aux in teens, tert in early adulthood and inferior somewhere between 35-50's. But the thing is that not everyone ever develops much of the other functions than just dom and some might start to develop their inferior even in their 20's.

    The theory of function order comes from the idea that judging functions represent opposite things in the psyche, and perceiving functions do the same. Like if you are logically analyzing something, it guides you away from analyzing it from personal point of view. Now if a kid learns that its best to analyze via logic instead of using personal point of view like how something makes me feel, or whats the atmosphere you feel in a situation, he will push all the F stuff in the unconscious and make a habit out of T. Or if someone is focusing on concrete perceptions about the external world, it takes the focus out of what might lie behind what is seen and if a person learns that its best not to focus on "imaginary" stuff, thats what he will do and push the imaginary stuff in the unconscious and make a habit out of S. Now we have a person whose dom-aux axis is thinking and sensing, but you can approach both thinking and sensing from different points of view, by the subjective factors or objective ones. I and E are opposites in the same way as T and F(or S and N) are. If you focus on the external world and adjust yourself according to it, its away from adjusting yourself according to subjective factors, however if you focus on the subjective factor when using thinking for example, you can focus on the objective aspects when using sensing to give you that more healthy balance. This is also why the inferior gets the opposite I/E from dom and tert opposite from aux.

    But ofc some people, like ISFP for example, might be stuck in his Ni and use it more than his Se at some points of his life, but that doesent change type, it just tells something about the mental functioning of the person, which in these cases is usually unhealthy.

    Schizotypal Personality Disorder Symptoms | Psych Central
    "People with this disorder may be unusually superstitious or preoccupied with paranormal phenomena that are outside the norms of their subculture."
    Yea, but even if they may be that way in some cases, the characteristics are

    ICD definition is:

    A disorder characterized by eccentric behavior and anomalies of thinking and affect which resemble those seen in schizophrenia, though no definite and characteristic schizophrenic anomalies have occurred at any stage. There is no dominant or typical disturbance, but any of the following may be present:

    Inappropriate or constricted affect (the individual appears cold and aloof);

    Behavior or appearance that is odd, eccentric or peculiar;

    Poor rapport with others and a tendency to withdraw socially;

    Odd beliefs or magical thinking, influencing behavior and inconsistent with subcultural norms;

    Suspiciousness or paranoid ideas;

    Obsessive ruminations without inner resistance, often with dysmorphophobic, sexual or aggressive contents;

    Unusual perceptual experiences including somatosensory (bodily) or other illusions, depersonalization or derealization;

    Vague, circumstantial, metaphorical, over-elaborate or stereotyped thinking, manifested by odd speech or in other ways, without gross incoherence;

    Occasional transient quasi-psychotic episodes with intense illusions, auditory or other hallucinations and delusion-like ideas, usually occurring without external provocation.
    Millon has proposed two subtypes for the disorder(besides being "pure"):

    Insipid schizotypal:
    A structural exaggeration of the passive-detached pattern. It includes schizoid, depressive, dependent features.

    Traits:
    Sense of strangeness and nonbeing; overtly drab, sluggish, inexpressive; internally bland, barren, indifferent, and insensitive; obscured, vague, and tangential thoughts.
    Timorous schizotypal :
    A structural exaggeration of the active-detached pattern. It includes avoidant, negativistic (passive-aggressive) features.

    Traits:
    Warily apprehensive, watchful, suspicious, guarded, shrinking, deadens excess sensitivity; alienated from self and others; intentionally blocks, reverses, or disqualifies own thoughts.
    So what you were saying at OP is that all of this comes from Ne bent inwards. You see now how it might be a bit more complex and cant be explained like that or completely with any sort of function explanation?

    But how can you be sure that you "know"? Because it goes against my own experiences and against what respectable people say about typology.

    Dude. I've already spent a ton of time and thinking on typology and functions. Read Jung, and the functions people. I started a thread about it...Also, one of them, barrens?, says the functions are developed at earlier times than you quoted.

    But, really, it's all conjecture eh?

    It looks like some people are just so attached to their boxes that they are very slow to change. They will pull every trick they can in order to avoid the cognitive dissonance required to grow intellectually away from old thinking habits. Perhaps some day I will be "respectable" enough to be influential, but since "respectable" is socially or individually subjective, more than likely I won't be respectable in the right way, whatever that means subjectively. Objectivity is respectable only when it appeals to something subjective. We attach to our gurus like a baby latched on to its mommy's nipple. Or at least, some of us do; some of us have moved out of the guru stage, for example, yours truly.

    When you finally grow out of the guru stage you will make an interesting discovery: you will discover that you had never really stopped creating, but that you were only afraid to make your creations conscious in order to avoid insulting your dead omniscient guru archetype.

    It turns out that all the so-called "shadow functions" (not to be confused with inferior functions), being simply inverted (but not opposed) to your top four functions, are under-used functions. It's simply a matter of learning more about human cognition to find out what role they play in consciousness and behavior.
