    Default Do INTJs Overdevelop Thinking and Underdevelop Intuition?

    Do you think INTJs overdevelop Te and underdevelop Ni (or something similar to those lines)?

    Please explain your thoughts/reasoning. If you think they do,
    1. why do you think this happens?
    2. what is the impact on the INTJs development as a person? and
    3. how does it effect their lives?

    I voted no, and since I have the default opinion (INTJs have dominant Ni and auxiliary Te), I don't think I need to explain. The explanation is the theory itself.

    I'm laughing that you think you don't need to explain.

    Edit: Maybe the question is not clear enough. Let me put it this way. Relative to other types, do INTJs focus less on developing their dominant function than other types do and overdevelop their auxiliary function as compared to what other types do?

    It also has to do with how much you trust your dominant function as compared to other types.

    I think first you would need to explain why they would do that... why?

    Interesting thought. I think I see where your going with this. So Ni Te dom and aux function in the INTJ. Ni being abstract and not very concrete and Te being a very objective judgement function might cause an INTJ to favor Te opposed to Ni. Ni might give them a hunch something is right Te drives them find hard facts it is right.If Ni is wrong then INTJ is thanking god they had Te to tell them so. This could cause them to devalue Ni hunches over Te objectiveness or something like that.

    ..but that would make them ENTJs. This is nonsensical.

    The role of Te would still be auxiliary, aka aiding Ni, whereas ENTJs lead with Te and use Ni to verify the direction they are going.

    The strength of the function =/= the role of the function. Certain environmental stressors for instance can cause someone to reject their dominant function in favor of their aux, or work out their tertiary more than their secondary as the situation calls for it. This does not change their order of preference in choosing the primary over the secondary over the tertiary. It just means that the lesser preferred function is more applicable to their situation.

    I think INTJ's over develop their ENFP's.
    'One of (Lucas) Cranach's masterpieces, discussed by (Joseph) Koerner, is in it's self-referentiality the perfect expression of left-hemisphere emptiness and a precursor of post-modernism. There is no longer anything to point to beyond, nothing Other, so it points pointlessly to itself.' - Iain McGilChrist
