This is problematic because it introduces a bias AND I am not actually sure which functions I use the most.
    Unfortunately, there's nothing I can really do about that, as, if you know the theory, you'll be able to figure out which one I'm getting at.

    You already know the theory, so, at this point, while I might be able to help you out, you're gunna have to figure out yourself whether you use the Ni/Se or Ne/Si axis.

    Yeah, I didn't think one necessarily led to another, but I figured it might point in that direction.

    Unfortunately, this question isn't really all that definitive in the first place, and your answer didn't help all that much in that regard.

    I would say, though, that, taken alone, this would probably point to INTP.

    But then you say this.

    The thing is, this isn't necessarily Se. But it could be.

    Perhaps you're just using Ne to try and extrapolate things about their lives.

    It can be a difficult question, figuring out your auxiliary/tertiary.

    You just gotta figure out: Se/Ni, or Ne/Si...

    Ok, so this is more complex, but would you say that you have a preference for thinking of the universe as dynamic, and in a state of constant flux, a la Heraclitus, or as static, with essential properties, a la Parmenides. That might be difficult to figure out, and you'll have to separate that which you study from the way in which your mind most naturally works, but, if you can figure out the answer to that question, in my opinion, it gives you the answer.

    Okay. But if you do think of any "sneak ups" I'd be happy to take a shot at them.

    Hmm, difficult choice.
    It's both! It depends on what level you are talking about.

    Okay, question about tert Si. How does it show up in Ne and Ti? Does it act as a grounding for the theories, or as a prediction thing for the theories? Both?

    If any come to mind, I will be sure to let you know.

    Si is the "opposite" of Ne, but subconsciously serves as the grounding of Ne, the underlying source from which Ne makes its connections.

    With regards to Ti, usually Ti and Si interact by forming a giant conceptual model or framework.

    Si represents all the information that has been incorporated to form that framework over the person's life.

    Ti does the churning/analysis of all information coming in to check its consistency with the Si framework that already exists.

    Thinking about it more, I'd say 80% static, 20% change. I read the Parmenides' article and it closely resonated with me. But I logically know that things change. So things are naturally static, then logic kicks in and tells me that the other way is so also.

    Okay.
