My perceptions are probably more influenced by the current season, since that's what's most on my mind now. When was she ever indirect though? When she thought someone was being selfish or doing something wrong, she'd come right out and bitch at them for being selfish or doing something wrong. She was never much of a sneaky manipulator.
    She seemed totally indirect and manipulative when she did the "intervention" with Walt about his cancer treatment. In fact, the entire way in which she handled his treatment was pure ENFJ. An ENTJ would've said, "Walt, you're getting the fucking treatment, and here's why: reason 1, reason 2, reason 3." Skyler, on the other hand, tried to do all this manipulative bullshit. Drove me crazy. So indirect. And the whole time she was partaking in, as @Rasofy said of unhealthy Fe doms: "What I feel is best for me is best for you".

    She and Walt would never communicate the way they do if they were both TJs.

    And, in all honesty, I'm not just saying this cuz you opened up this avenue: but I've been paying a ton of attention to how she says and does what she says and does. I think that's a crucial element.

    I wouldn't deny the possibility that she's an Fi dom. As you and/or others have stated, characters evolve with the needs of the show. They're not real people (not saying that real people don't evolve, too, though). I think she's pretty certainly a Ji dom, though. Would be a bit tough to change that fact about her...

    Yeah Skyler is definitely Fe dominant, she is much more interpersonally oriented, on one of the newer episodes, Walter made a sarcastic remark about Skyler when she was preparing to tell Hank about Walter's "gambling problem", she was going to fake cry to give added effect(Fe) while Walter probably saw this as an emotionally empty act(Fi). She can put on quite a show and knows how to navigate interpersonal situations very well. Not to say a Te dom can't do the same but she has Fe oriented motivations for her actions(communal bonds and loyalties over impersonal objective framework). As for typing Walter Jr. as INTP, I guess that was just my perception, he doesn't seem fully developed enough though, but I guess IP is pretty clear.
