    Fixed title for ya.

    I think it's the expression of an artificial dichotomy. It's an attempt to pretend like functions exist on poles, even though they truly don't. There's no reason you can't be high in Ne and Ni, but in MBTI, these attributes share an axis, such that more of one means less of the other. Don't take it too seriously.

    Thank you. =]
    That has been confusing me for a long time.
    So basically, theres no real difference between someone who gets 1% on everything and someone who gets 100% on everything?

    If you get a really polarised score, you can bet that you are that preference, but it's not fool-proof.

    So how do we REALLLY know what we are than? Is there a fool-proof test out there (assuming that all the questions are answered honestly)

    First, you should study the cognitive processes.

    Take the test. Understanding the Eight Jungian Cognitive Processes / Eight Functions Attitudes

    Read about the CP's.

    Estimate what type you are by reading about the preferences.

    Compare the CP's you think you use to the CP's used by that type.

    Eliminate possibilities..

    etc

    Se - extraverted Sensing
    Experiencing the immediate context; noticing changes and opportunities for action; being drawn to act on the physical world; accumulating experiences; scanning for visible reactions and relevant data; recognizing “what is”.

    Si - introverted Sensing
    Reviewing past experiences; “what is” evoking “what was”; seeking detailed information and links to what is known; recalling stored impressions; accumulating data; recognizing the way things have always been.

    Ne - extraverted iNtuiting
    Interpreting situations and relationships; picking up meanings and interconnections; being drawn to change “what is” for “what could possibly be”; noticing what is not said and threads of meaning emerging across multiple contexts.

    Ni - introverted iNtuiting
    Foreseeing implications and likely effects without external data; realizing “what will be”; conceptualizing new ways of seeing things; envisioning transformations; getting an image of profound meaning or far-reaching symbols.

    Te - extraverted Thinking
    Ordering; organizing for efficiency; systematizing; applying logic; structuring; checking for consequences; monitoring for standards or specifications being met; setting boundaries, guidelines, and parameters; deciding if something is working or not.

    Ti - introverted Thinking
    Analyzing; categorizing; evaluating according to principles and whether something fits the framework or model; figuring out the principles on which something works; checking for inconsistencies; clarifying definitions to get more precision.

    Fe - extraverted Feeling
    Connecting; considering others and the group—organizing to meet their needs and honor their values and feelings; maintaining societal, organizational, or group values; adjusting and accommodating others; deciding if something is appropriate or acceptable to others.

    Fi - introverted Feeling
    Valuing; considering importance and worth; reviewing for incongruity; evaluating something based on the truths on which it is based; clarifying values to achieve accord; deciding if something is of significance and worth standing up for.

    Sorry, I don't rate this test at all. With all these tests there leads to quite a confusion as each one has an error rate which means if you do a whole bunch of tests you can end up with a whole load of types being yours.

    Like, I can test INTJ INTP and ENTP depending on what test I take and on what site.

    Personally, I think the questions on this site you reference are too vague, and don't specifically identify the defining traits that well.
