    This post reminded of other posts on the website, and I was curious, in your opinion do you think types could learn to use their shadow functions? For example SPs and Ne or Ni effectiveley like they may become to feel at home with using them.

    I doubt it. Functions are mindsets, not tools.

    hmm. I don't know. my opinion is that if you're for example an ISTP, and you "feel" like you have a developed Te because you seem to be effectively managing the external world pretty well in a logical manner, I wouldn't be convinced you're really using Te. Te is not part of ISTPs' original cognitive functions. maybe it could just be Ti-Se and you thought it was already Te. it's just my opinion though. I don't know if you could really know you're already developing some functions or not. there's a possibility you could just have mistaken a certain function with the combination of other functions.

    as for your type, are you convinced now of ENFP or not?

What are you're thoughts? My reasoning behind me going down the Fi road is that I am very value oriented but after thinking this through I was wrong to think in that way because as Feelers ENFJs would also be value oriented. I am still thinking this through although I am running out of rope but I am still thinking Perciever for me the reason for that is I procrastinate, I love to leave options open to help exlpore other alternatives, and I am very disorganized.
    If that is not the post of an ENFP, I don't know what is.
