    Any introverted function seems to be ranked similarly to its extraverted equivalent (such as Ti and Te), they are never separated by much.
    Accordingly, the first four functions according to the usual order are not ranked first, but spaced pretty evenly throughout all eight.
    Makes sense to me. A person with high Ti will often use what looks like Te, but it's still right to say they mostly use Ti. I think the usual conception/ordering of the shadow functions might be wrong.

    I think there are a lot of things potentially wrong with this test, definitely wrong with the MBTI system, and with our understanding of how the cognitive functions work. The great randomness of the function orders seems to really shoot elephant shots through the validity of the MBTI system. If the pattern mentioned about each function mostly being tested right next to its counterpart (Se next to Si or Te next to Ti), that seems to suggest to me that perhaps the way this test is setup is causing that. From what I'm seeing, the patterns presented (or lack thereof) are speaking to the invalidity of this test and /or the MBTI system at large.

    Someone should look through this thread (someone who doesn't have a life) and see if there are any other discernible patterns. We also need a better test to compare to, one with a supposedly high level of validity (even though this one claimed to have such). I also want to see if there is a correlation is people's preference for/level of extraversion/introversion, and if that has an effect on what functions appear in the top 4. I'd guess that for very extraverted people, 3/4 of the top four functions will be extraverted, and vise versa for introverts. There are also other factors that must be accounted for such as age. If we assume all people tend to develop lesser functions as they continue to age, we should assume the order may display different patterns for different types across different age groups. That makes it very complex. As it should be. We are talking about human beings and personality, not some kind of card matching game.

    Yeah, I was also thinking that it could just a fault of the test. I certainly wouldn't want to try coming up with reliable questions to distinguish Fi from Fe.

    When I was first taking the test I noticed some faults. There was one question in particular that screamed Te to me but at the end I realized they were trying to test for Ti. Although most people seem to have some significant level of difference between several of their introverted/extroverted functions. The age thing is definitely a factor though. Since I'm only 17 and MBTI theory says that Fe is typically developed in the 40s my low score may just be a factor of age. From the results of this among my friends most seem to have slightly unusual patterns, although the expected Tertiary being ranked higher is the most common one I've noticed.

    By focusing on the strongest configuration of cognitive processes, your pattern of responses most closely matches individuals of this type: ISFP

    If these cognitive processes don't fit well then consider these types: ESFP, or INFP

    ESFP, ISFP or ENFP?

    I screamed aloud, as it tore through them,

    It said I'm inFp this time. I normally type iNfj/iNtj, but I have tested inFp, eNfp, and inTp in the past. I'm so confused. I've taken these tests like >9000 times, but for some reason I can never feel secure with the type I am assigned.
