Having taken the some MBTI tests, the results commonly show that my strongest cognitive processes are Ti, Ne, and Fi where the three are close. So normally, when graphs are being displayed, My Introversion side is almost dead even with my Extraversion side. Though the rest are different. My intuition is way ahead of my senses, thinking is considerable ahead of the feeling function (due to weak Fe, even if the Fi is strong), and Perception is significantly better than the Judgment function.
Over the past few years, my Ti is pretty strong. It gave me a sense of structure, but it lacks the factor in inspiring me. It may give clarity, but not necessarily the motivation to move. So i guess that's the part where I started to go spiritual (which I attribute to the strengthening of the Fi). Though really, it's hard to get some sense of spirituality / motivation if you want your inner self to be moved by some inner values when you always have a Ti to double check things.
Come to think of it, Ti and Fi are double-checking entities that I try to put coherence with each other and this eventually made me think that I'm getting too "uptight" because of this. I shouldn't be only looking for a prime mover (Fi), but I seriously need to cut myself some slack. At least my inner world does.
Now here comes my other strong cognitive process that I overlook--Ne. Though I would say that among the three supposedly strong cognitive processes that I have, this is the one that I least understood.
I have some questions.
1. Some forum members show their MBTI readings where Introversion is considerably higher than their extroversion, or vice versa. For example, I saw some readings of INTPs here where I is much stronger than the E. Does that mean Ti is their glaring strength, end everything else is considerably weaker, even Ne?
I thought an Ne / Ti balanced slugfest is normal.
2. One of the descriptions I've read about an ENTP is their supposed good money making skills (even though their money management skills is questionable). INTPs are known to neither have both. What is it about a jacked up Ne that gives a person an edge in generating income, even if a strong P doesn't promote good follow-up?
3. Does it imply that a strong Ne gives someone a certain degree of sociability? Most of the ENTP readings I read implies a social strength that they have because their strongest function is an extroversion function. In my opinion, Ne is charismatic but only if executed right in the context of social situations, otherwise, it can equally be as devastative.
4. Another thing I've read about ENTP is a strong proactive stance in doing something. Again, what is it about Ne that all of a sudden makes an ENTP more proactive in doing something, comparatively with an INTP? Is Ne a "doing" function?
5. Does a strong Ne implies a generally Devil's Advocate disposition when interacting with someone? Personally, I only do that when my Ti gets threatened. Otherwise, it's not a general disposition that I have.
