    That's true of both N functions.

    IA, about the Fi.

    He's an INFP (who hates Te).
    Bolded part is much more Ni than Ne. Ne doesn't go deep; it goes wide. It connects a lot of unrelated contexts in the same level of depth by noting abstract conceptual similarities between different systems. (Interestingly, "expansive" is more applicable to Ne, but "deep" is not. Ni is extensive, not expansive--Q seems to have included elements of both Ne and Ni and generalized all of them together as Ne.)

    Ni goes all the way to the bottom of one system to fully understand all of its implications and remove itself from any unconscious perceptual bias in interpreting the meaning of that system, but doesn't make the "horizontal" inter-systemic connections that Ne is capable of.

    Statements like, "You know, x is a lot like y in that the relationships between their parts operate similarly" are Ne. Horizontal connections between the same level of depth across different systems. Extroverted functions are by nature more superficial.

    Statements like, "You know, x is really just a shallow attempt to deceive me, but there are a lot of different things I might be missing before I step back and view the system independently of its built-in interpretations" are Ni. Vertical connections down to the deepest levels of personalized interpretations of meaning.

    Just because Victor uses abstract language to illustrate his points doesn't mean he's using Ne. Except when his Fi takes over and makes unsubstantiated moral pronouncements, he's always seeking to show how everything is all in how you look at it, which is classic Ni.

    Whatever it is you're interpreting as Ti is probably a combination of other functions/inadequacies in your functional analysis. Fi and Ti cannot simultaneously influence one's value system because they directly contradict each other regarding the source of introverted judgments.
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?

    But they can. They do when the tertiary is emphasized over the auxiliary. "ISFP" doesn't necessitate that he uses his S function more than his N function; it just indicates an Fi+Se+Ni+Te functional grouping. The order of priority is up to the individual, though--some people have learned to develop the tertiary above the auxiliary.

    INTJ makes more sense than INFP.

    INFP doesn't work because he doesn't use Ne or Si. His posts are ridiculously Ni.
    I know this is getting off topic but the discussion here is interesting. Getting away from referring to a particular person, how often do you think this happens - where tertiary is emphasized over the auxiliary, or auxiliary is emphasized over dominant (if that's possible)? What are its effects?

    When I was younger, I don't think I perceived the value of introverted intuition at all. The outer world taught me that thinking and sensing were more important or at least socially acceptable, and I think it drove me into acting in a way that did not align with my type (more ISTJish). It wasn't until I took the MBTI assessment and begun to understand myself a bit more that my career, relationships with others, etc. began to take off.

    Secondly, extreme introvert with no idea how to handle the external world, does not rule out INxPs.

    He's like the extreme INFPs I know, my mom is like this somewhat, but her dad, my grandpa, was the quintessential INFP extreme. The material world was irrelevant to him. He lived and breathed in abstraction. The real world was a channel he hardly tuned in to...unless forced to by my grandma. The real world served the purpose as far as to be a trigger for the greater unknown, the gaps. That's it. He'd check out and the rest would be a dance in abstract associations. Near the end of his life, he gave up his material comfort and became a wanderer.

    Ne is not as mundane as most manifestations of it that we see. It can go quite 'deep' like Ni. How does it go deep?

    In-to-out (Ni), out-to-in (Ne).

    In search of what makes the whole greater than the sum of its parts, to understand the whole beyond its parts. Ni.

    In search of the whole from the sum of its parts, to unify as one. Ne.

    Both can go deep.

    Victor's thoughts are mostly the latter.

    Also, he can very well use Ni too (and prolly does), but mostly, it's an Ne-scream.

    PS - keep in mind, everyone, that the Victor we see is a persona. A glimpse of the person as he wants to present himself, not Victor himself.

    Personality contradicts. And it's not as if the person would be using Fi and Ti equally, or that there would be a constant struggle. Fi would clearly have reign, but not all the time.

    Also, some people are extremely introverted or extroverted. An incredibly introverted person might not really use any extroverted functions over their introverted alternative, or just use more Xi than Xe functions.

    When I joined, I gave my real name, "Victor", and below my real name I put a current picture of myself.

    I also gave my real address and invited everyone to speak to me on Skype.

    And then, as is my wont, I railed against anonymous avatars.

    So of course I want to present myself.

    Victor, are you ISFP?
    I think that would be quite interesting actually.

    If only tangibles of our identity speaks to who we really are.

    We could all be summed up with barcodes.

    I must admit I was wondering myself. If I understand it correctly, S would give me an artistic side and I idealize creativity and art but secretly fear I am not creative.

    And if I understand it, N would make me intuitive. And I guess I am not too sure what intuitive means in this context for I use intuitive and counter-intuitive in another context altogether.

    All I can say is that I am probably not T or J.

    And even I is in a little doubt as I am histrionic.

    However in talking about this I have learnt a little more about MBTI.

    But it all remains a bit of a mystery to me.

    This is so true it goes without saying. So as well as giving my tangible identity which can be confirmed on the electoral role or on the telephone to me and my friends, I have seriously and determinedly tried to share my inner self.

    But the truth is that almost everyone here is anonymous. So I find myself a real person surrounded by anonymity.

    This has created considerable friction and even opposition. But I have weathered the storm and here I am, the real Victor talking to you in real time.

    Why is this so scary?
