    Default TI and NE, how do I know if there balanced?

    Hey

    I've been reading and posting a bit about MBTI for a couple of years, but recently just started to figure out how the functions of the letters operate.

    So for example, I'm an ENTP my functions are Extraverted Intuition, Introverted Thinking, Extraverted Feeeling and lastley Introverted Sensing.

    Now, I've been around INTP's alot (1 cousin, 1 GF, 1 friend) and I think I've developed my Ti pretty well although offcourse my Ne is greater.

    But how do I now this to be sure, is there a way to mesure it? the only thing I can think of is how I handle diffrent situations, and as far as I can recall its very rare that I fall back on Fe i almost always go into a quiet Ti mode and rethink myself, in some situations I can fall back to Fe but its extremley rare, it happend to me alot when i was a teenager though.

    As it apperas reading this forum, it is importent to have balanced functions.

    So without all the pretext my basic questtion is this, how do one know (especially ENTP's) if you have balanced functions? And how do I improve non balanced functions?

    There is no balance, balance is the faint attempt of mankind to rationalize itself and that will never work.

    I dont now, I dont think so but it seemed importent to have a good balance and therefore I was interested in it.

    It would seem to me that it is fairly easy as an entp to miss the importence of Ti as I can imagine it would be for an INTP to miss the importence of Ne.

    I would think that I use my functions as well as possible but maybe I'm not in which case i would need to rethink and adjust to better my abilities.

    entropie: maybe we have diffrent views on the definition of balance. i dont get your statement at all.

    Unbalanced rules. Unbalanced means you have excess energy to focus on your Ne(Imagination) and do that better than other types of people, which is super awesome. Symmetry is boring, and besides having your dominant functions balanced means having all your functions balanced and that's a bitch to pull off and it also means you'd be a boring dude.

    You weigh your Ne, and compare this weight to that of a duck. If it weighs less then a duck, your Ti is consequently made of wood. Wood floats, so you are probably a flammable witch.
