    christ, no one seems to understand functions even a little

    EDIT:

    ENFP -> Ne, Fi, Te, Si
    INFP -> Fi, Ne, Si, Te
    ENTP -> Ne, Ti, Fe, Si
    INTP -> Ti, Ne, Si, Fe
    ENFJ -> Fe, Ni, Se, Ti

    and so on...

    if you are an INFP, those are your functions and those are the order they are in.

    In an ENFP the first function receives the information. The auxiliary function determines what to do with the information. The tertiary does two things: it allows the first two functions to communicate freely (this is true for any type) and in the ENFPs case it brings order to decision making. The shadow is just a backup to Te and is an un(sub)conscious process. thats functions in a nutshell...at least for an ENFP

    I'm free to decide in which order I'd rather use my functions, thanks. Being an INTP doesn't make me exactly like an INTP book description.

    I find function order to be restrictive. To say that everyone fits into exactly 16 "well-defined" categories is pretty ambitious, especially for something so ambiguous.
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    I know, but I just don't think the way functions work doesn't actually work 100% with me.

    it's not that they work anyway with anyone, once you treat functions as individual entities they lose their usefulness and thus are pretty pointless. an individual function is nothing, it doesn't tell you anything. if you can explain how your functions work together (like i did with ENFP) then go for it. you might know much more then I do because I can't figure out a way that it would be possible.

    Boy, this topic sure does bring out the "I know you better than you know yourself" crowd, doesn't it? :rolli:

    Anyway, according to that cognitive processes test thingy, mine go like this:

    Fi-Se-Si-Fe-Ne-Te-Ni-Ti

    Which, when I read the descriptions of what the functions mean/do pretty much makes sense in the way I approach stuff mentally.
