    I've seen conflicting reports, with some giving the order as "Ti, Ne, Si, Fe" and others stating that Fe is the weakest, least developed function in INTPs. The latter meshes with my own observations from various threads in which people list their tested function order, where Fi appears stronger than Fe far more often than the reverse and Fe rarely rates as strongly used.

    Oh, sorry. I didn't mean it was supposed to be particularly strong, but it's supposed to be higher than Fi according to most type descriptions, where it is fourth, like you said with Ti Ne Si Fe being the highest functions. According too this my top 4 are Ti, Fi, Ne, Te and then Si, Ni, Fe, Se.

    That went to both points. Fe > Fi seems the exception rather than the rule in the results in the threads I linked.

    Your Fe shouldn't be too high at all, and that's reflected in your test. High Fi INTPs I think are just confused. You're allowed to have emotions without Fi. For me, both Fi and Fe are suppressed. But, this may be because I intellectualize my emotions and values and just consider them thoughts. So maybe I'm low Fi via emotional reclassification? lol.

    Well when there was the Soccer Cup you showed alot of F easily. Think you're a bit hard on yourself.

    I definitely get worked up over sports. But they're not cognitive functions being expressed, just emotional energy.

    Well dont underestimate that. Sports are an instrument in which you almost always present a subjective opinion to the rest of the world. This a great relief function to an otherwise T guy who cares for objectivism in his daily life.

    Wouldn't sports be Se and maybe Fe?

    Not entirely. I wouldn't try to automatically imbue functions with actions and skills because...

    ...with an inadequate understanding of what functions mean you can ascribe character traits to them improperly which can cause odd test results
