    Because saying "multi-faceted" is a little lame and because of the mood I'm in I'll say "courageous".

    Yeah, I did mean in terms of MBTI functions. Doesn't seem to be Te, so would you say it's Ni/Fi?
    I agree that it is better to be correct, even if I didn't come up with the correct answer myself. I prefer, however, that others provide me the information I need to correct my decision, rather than making the decision for me themselves. There may be more than one way to act upon the correction, and there may be factors involved that they do not realize.
    Yeah, this sounds like Ni to me. That makes a lot of sense. Si + Te, for me, tends to mean seeing something wrong and only wanting to use the best possible method of fixing it -- i.e. the best possible method based on what Si has on record in the database. I had always associated that sort of certainty with Te, but I guess it's more Si than anything -- i.e. the certainty is Si and the acting upon the certainty is Te/Fi..?

    I was originally explaining the desire to contribute to the world around as a combination of functions. Specifically, critical Te sees that something is wrong, or ineffective/inefficient. Ni sees how much better it could be. Te shows how that might be accomplished, using Se data to flesh out the Ni vision. Fi underlies the values present (efficiency, improvement, logic), and motivates the action in the sense of giving the goal personal importance. This is just a rough sketch, and things may work differently for different INTJs, but it is at least one example of how the functions combine this way.

    As for correcting/improving what other people are doing, a similar process applies. Usually it is driven by that almost instantaneous combination of Te + Ni. I can almost literally see in the moment the negative consequences unfold, or how much better another course of action would be. Here, Fi can be pivotal in determining whether and how I act upon these realizations.

    My question is for INTj's who drink heavily in their free time. I know one particular INTJ who seems to become far more revealing about his feelings when he drinks. He also seems to lose control with inferior extroverted sensing. Its a weird thing to observe because it's so very different from his normal, sober behavior. I am just wondering if it is likely his thoughts and feelings while drinking are BS, or if they are more likely true but he needs alcohol to reveal? Do INTJs use alcohol as an emotional outlet?

    Yes, yes we do. It either numbs the feelings we're wanting to get rid of or allows us the fluidity to convey them to others without wondering about potential repercussions. I'm very much still aware of what I say when I'm drunk, and I'll still filter myself if I know that the company would react badly towards the sentiments I'm voicing.
    In all honesty, he's probably being true to what he thinks inside. No better way to get past an INTJ's armor than to get him wasted. Cracks the weak spots and lets you get a glimpse of the guy inside.

    Unless he gets sick before he opens up, as I do. Then everyone is shut out, fast.
