    How in tune do you think you are with your senses?
    *scratches head* Where's the logic in that? An ISTJ is Si/Te. ISTP is Ti/Se. ISTJ uses Sensing for their inner world. ISTP uses Sensing for dealings with the outer world. The ISTJ is more in tune with Sensing than the ISTP because it's dominant, meaning it's introverted rather than extraverted with the ISTP. The ISTP is constantly working off of Ti, so they take things apart rather than focus on what they know.

    The secondary functions for an Introvert are to tend to the affairs of the outside world. It's going to be a function they're skilled in using, but won't prefer it by far since they are introverted. It's more like the extraverted functions for introverts provide the most amount of energy when dealing with the outside world out of the 4 choices, but they will reach a boiling point with it much sooner than they would using an introverted function.

    I think the question for our ISTx here is, what do you think about the most when you're alone?

    (Well, I wasn't using the function-theory for that post, trying a little bit of each angle to solve what type he is.)

    It's still directly relevant to Se, though, which is why I summed it up with "How in tune do you feel with your senses?" An ISTP would have noticeable Se, and an ISTJ wouldn't. That should make a difference. Basically that's what I was saying.

    I should have said "Se vs. Si, which is more noticeable?"
    You can't spell "justice" without ISTJ.

    It's just a thought.
    I have some E tendencies at times, like when I get away from people sometimes, I feel a little isolated. Also another thing - when I speak to people during the day, I feel better. I don't think that's enough to make me E, but I don't know.

    Besides my schoolwork? More fun things than work.

    See, I enjoy talking to people a lot on the internet. It's fun. But, get me face to face and the fun factor plummets.

    At first, especially when I'm with new people, I don't feel all that comfortable. But then later on, when I know them more, I feel more comfortable. I actually have found that I have a good ability to behave like the people I hang out with. If I'm hanging out with different people, then I'll act like them when around them, while afterward when I'm alone I'll act the way I normally act.

    I do the same.

    Definitely a possibility. Someone suggested doing a functions test, I think. Maybe read up on descriptions of the functions as well and see which ones suit you more. If youíre stuck between Si/Se and Ti/Te, try reading up on Fi/Fe and Ni/Ne as well. I remember reading about Fi and Ne originally and they just seemed so foreign to me.

    Ok, I read about the different cognitive functions here - Understanding the Eight Jungian Cognitive Processes / Eight Functions Attitudes

    And here's how I would rank them on a scale of 1 to 10 (10 being the strongest) for me:

    Se = 3
    Si = 4
    Fe = 3
    Fi = 4
    Ne = 3
    Ni = 1
    Te = 6
    Ti = 5

    I have a good time when I'm not working. My mind just wanders all over the place while I'm having a good time. I'll be doing something really exciting and be processing like....a website I read or a movie I just watched.
