What do you make of the fact ENTJs don't want any function besides the ones they already have? You're the one with the Ni. How is it that my one interpretation of the data, that ENTJs do not see the appeal of functions that they don't use because they are uninterested in an alternative method of worldview, is incorrect?
This is a trick question by the way.
The bolded is arguably the most important sentence in my whole post as it provides the context for interpreting what I said. I don't know why you chose to exclude it, unless you just didn't get that far.
Next time, I'll just state it.

The question asked which would you rather be your dom function, not which functions you respect or appreciate in any way. What if ENTJs enjoy their Ni and would like it to be more developed? What do you make of the fact that the majority of INTPs also chose their aux function Ne?? Are they also incapable of appreciating anything other than what they use? Is it not at all possible that a person can appreciate Ni as a function without being a user of it?
Of course it's not objective. It's simply one of many possible ways to interpret the fact that no ENTJs had selected Ti or Ne as a function they'd like to try on. Just as you provide additional possibilities for other points of data in the poll. I thought it was funny that a type branded by others as hardheaded didn't stray from their existing functions, and recalled how AJblaise would frequently call ENTJs the SJs of the NTs. Thus, I found the connection amusing and made the joke.
The point of my post, was that any reason Z gave for why it was blatantly incorrect would be the result of a judging process, not Ni. Ni can't decide. No perceiving function can.
Um i was just wandering while reading this thread, but depending on which dominant function you changed wouldn't you have to change one of either the first or last letters too, if you essential wanted to be the same person but with different drives to life.
And I'm not even sure if that makes sense but something like what i just described is just on the edge of my reasoning because of this threads question.
