I also disagree with your characterization of Extraversion as an absolute -- it means different things for different people. More internalized doesn't necessarily mean less absolute/more relative. I just think you're extending this idea beyond its usefulness, especially since the functions depend on one another in practice.
    What he said. And P functions (extraverted Perceiving - so Se, Ne) are infinitely less 'absolute' than extraverted Judging functions (Te, Fe).
    P / J can't be considered in isolation - it's kinda meaningless.

    INFJs are hard to understand. But that's just 'cos they don't make sense.

    She! (though you'd have no way of knowing that), and thanks. I think the person who pinpointed that the OP presented a theory that played into his own bias said it best, though.

    No arguments here!

    I'm on the verge of being slightly offended by you guys so strongly assuming that I'm "playing for my own team". It's not like you're suggesting it; you seem to be taking it for granted as if it obviously was the case here.

    It's not. I just happen to be an INFJ. And a person of different type agreed on my rationalizations before I posted it. I've made a lot theories about other types too. Obviously one can't make a theory about one's own type without getting disregarded. I'd like to be disregarded for being wrong, not because of false and easy assumptions.

    Just so that you know, I'm a very objective person. At least I strive to be. I want to understand things, not twist them so that I'd become more special. That would be really immature.
