    I don't see Ti as a devilish function in me. I more see myself as having balanced use of Ti and Fi. I just think they are the less used side of the top four functions.

    This is how I see the functions in myself with the ones I use more on the left. But this is just me.

    Fi/Ti 50/50
    Se/Ne 90/10
    Ni/Si 60/40
    Te/Fe 50/50

    I actually use my supposed devilish function (Ni) more than my aspirational one (Ne). So in a way I actually prefer Ni over Ne. In a way I'm attracted to symbolism, but Ni is still one of my lesser-used functions.

    I tend to think that maybe--just maybe--all the functions are available to everyone, but that the further down your stereotypical function order they are, the more restricted their use: in some psychologically binding sense the lower functions are meant to serve the higher functions. So, aspirationally I have Se, and I can goof on it, riding the bike around and enjoying the wind and rain, but really it's there to tell me where things are and how to take hold of them for use in the physical working out of my master plan. Once I get so far down the function order as to come up with Si, there isn't much left to do. Si barely contributes anything, and even if it did, it'd be in conflict with bigger, bolder contributions from every other function, most particularly the fourth (like you say, Steph), but also the first.

    Isn't it true that for anyone, using the eighth function is like taking your dominant function and perverting its focus?

    I don't know about this "devilish role" business. My supposed devil is Ti and yet it's one of my favorite processes. If I had to choose a negative process, it would be Te in the form of getting upset when things don't go according to plan or Si in the form of getting attacked by unpleasant memories. Even then, those processes have a lot of good points, especially Te.

    Anyways... I'm liking all these examples. I am curious though... Nunki and Wolfy, how do you use Ti? And how do you use Fi? Are there specific scenarios you'd use them in? I'd be interested in how you use Ni/Ne too, TheChosenOne... I've always had a viewpoint similar to Kalach's, but I'm pretty much open to anything.

    I'm curious... is that the aspiring function for all SPs? Clearly they need to amend all this MBTI nonsense

    I think you have the right idea here. I just view Fe and Fi as opposite ends of the feeling spectrum...so if you favor the extroverted side, the introverted side gets less use.
