    Default Cognitive Function Questions

    I was inspired by the enfp thread to test my cognitive functions. I found that my results indicated infp, but isn't there supposed to be a definite order to the these things? The reason why I ask is because although my Fi is the strongest, my Ni and Ne are almost identical, with the Ni (which I thought was an INFJ not an INFP trait) a little stronger.

    How much stock do each of you take in the order of cognitive functions?

    I could use some help understanding this aspect of typing.

    Cognitive Process Level of Development (Preference, Skill and Frequency of Use)
    extraverted Sensing (Se) ***************************** (29.3)
    average use
    introverted Sensing (Si) ********* (9.8)
    unused
    extraverted Intuiting (Ne) ****************************************** (42.9)
    excellent use
    introverted Intuiting (Ni) ********************************************* (45.6)
    excellent use
    extraverted Thinking (Te) ********** (10.9)
    unused
    introverted Thinking (Ti) ********************* (21.4)
    limited use
    extraverted Feeling (Fe) ********************************** (34.5)
    good use
    introverted Feeling (Fi) ********************************************* (45.8)
    excellent use

    First, the tests aren't very good (especially in distinguishing Ni and Ne). Best way is to just learn as much as you can about each function and determine for yourself.

    Second, it's more about the role of how you use each function, then their strength.

    Anyway, you look like an INFP to me.

    1) OP, you posted a duplicate thread so I deleted that one (since you already had a reply in this one)

    2) OP, you have more Ni than Ne? You must be one of those 'mystic' INFPs.

    Well, if you really just want to look at the test results then you would take your highest scoring function, which is Fi. Now, since you already have an introverted trait, you need to look at the highest scoring extraverted trait, which is Ne. Fi + Ne = INFP. I would recommend following Costrin's advice instead of taking these tests.
