    Clonester and Kalach: I figured I'd chime in on this...

    introverted Sensing (Si) as the 8th function [INTJs/INFJs]
    They usually ignore the past and may find they lack a storehouse of data. They may get stuck in impressions of how things were and resist change. When really stressed, they may waste time reviewing the impact of the past. Yet on occasion they tap into a universal knowing of how things have always been that, when woven into the context of their work and lives, can transform.
    extraverted Sensing (Se) as the 8th function [ENFPs/ENTPs]
    When really stressed they may get caught up in a binge of being in the physical moment. This can result in excessively seeking stimulation or following the urge to sleep or do nothing. They zero in on isolated details, hastily acting on them in a chaotic disjointed way. Yet on occasion they can really tune in to what's tangible, using the physical world to transform and change.
    I have an inner monologue that sounds strikingly similar to something off Animal Planet.

    Where did you find that information? I've had a hard time finding MBTI info that shows how a type uses all eight functions.

    Okay, a question. I should have asked a million years ago but I'm kind of lazy. Or so The Man says...

    So if Si is the weakest function in an ENFP....the inferior function...shouldn't it be called the 8th function?

    Where do all the shadow functions fit in, in terms of hierarchy?



    INTP :Thanks, but the page seems to be loading indefinitely for me.

    I've been of the view that the bottom/shadow functions are used only in certain circumstances or in limited ways. As opposed to the "6th" function is used more than the "8th" function.

    But what do the hotshots who came up with these silly theories have to say about it?

    When shit seriously hits the fan, I tend to enter a type of dormancy/perma-sleep period.

    I've also been known to be quite the stimulus whore.

    I think I am trapped in my shadow. I have literally done nothing the past year except drink excessively, go out all the time, and just lie around my place being stoned and clicking around the internet. But at least now I know its normal for ENFPs to do that. Makes me feel slightly better.
