Interestingly, I believe the INTJ dark desire for world domination is just as linked to tertiary Fi as the top two functions they'd rather claim:
"But, wherever the unconscious subject is identified with the ego, the mysterious power of the intensive feeling is also transformed into banal and arrogant ambition, vanity, and [p. 495] petty tyranny. This produces a type of [person] most regrettably distinguished by her/his unscrupulous ambition and mischievous cruelty. But this change in the picture leads also to neurosis.
It is just our way of promoting our values in the world. Your assessment of the significance of Fi is correct, but not quite in the way the quote describes.

Indeed. Your request itself proves that.

I'm fairly certain arrogant ambition, vanity and petty tyrany, as well as the occasional mischievous cruelty aptly sums up an INTJ in Darth Vader mode. I didn't say its how Fi is always shown in healthier or more mature INTJs.
Same with ISTJs when their selfish ambitions are only vain and cruel, though they may resemble Wall Street more than Darth Vader.

Funny how the "best" villains get defeated... lol.
It's not that INTJs are the losers it's that for a movie to be entertaining/exciting the villain has to be a strong/powerful character - thus the reason most are INTJs. But they are bound to lose because it's a movie and the good guy is supposed to win.
But if it was RL scenario considering the characters in the quoted post one could agree that the villains would have won!
