I'm an ENFJ. I like to think I'm rather intelligent. But I feel like intelligence is only half the battle, I'd like to be of a well rounded intelligence.
My Sensing (Se) and Thinking (Ti) functions are weak. Weaker than I'd like them to be at least. I have no problem with logic (mathematics has always been the subject I enjoy most). The problem comes when my feelings masquerade as thoughts. I've noticed a pattern in my critical thinking: it often tends to work overdrive to support my moral convictions and value judgements.
This doesn't really sit right with me. I think that impartial evaluation plays an integral role in well rounded moral convictions and value judgements. Essentially, if I can't let go of my emotions and just step back and fairly evaluate a situation, I don't have a clear picture. How can I claim to be a "good, fair person" or to be making the "right decision" if I can't see all perspectives?
Sounds easy enough, but experience says otherwise. How does one recognize what function they are using and when? I believe that all functions are used in tandem all the time, but how do we, as NF's, recognize when our logical thoughts are surrendering to our feelings, when our feelings are disguising themselves as thoughts, or when our feelings push our thoughts out of the way all together?
