With me I dont associate anything vaguely. Purple kool-aid gets its own distinction as purple kool-aid because it tastes different then purple gatorade. I cant group these together because they dont belong together. I like to try things and if I were to group things like that I would not be able to distinguish between all the different things in life. To my dad things are in life for a purpose, maybe thats what you mean by intention. Food is to eat, to make the hunger go away. He is very simple in that sense. Its like he has to have a goal to do something. Maybe thats what you mean by an objects intention. The intention things sounds like my ISTJ dad. On the outside me and him are alot alike, but we have never been able to really agree verbally on things. We have different thought patterns, but when we have a common goal we compliment each other because we have different ways of looking at things. Its almost like we cover all angles and one always gives in to the other when their idea is better without any fights. Complexity scares my dad while simplicity bores me.
I go back to socionics and relations and I think I am starting to understand the connection between ENFJ and ISTJ. If ENFJ has trouble finding the intention and ISTJ categorize things by purpose. Its like both line up because of vague categorization. The things you deem as simple line up with each other. You are better able to use J and make a decision because of lack of complexity. Where a P type is more complex but we suck at making a decision and pushing through because of the complexity.
I am not saying one is better than the other, just different. Both have there good and bad qualities.
