    I've known a few people whom I suspect were ENFPs who weren't terribly outgoing. They simply seemed to be Ne doms, rather than Fi doms.

    I wonder if "functional stacking" is real. It seems hard to determine which function is in what order.

    I think the functions are real, and I think people have preferences for some functions over others, but I'm not sure that they stack up in the neat, orderly way that the theories suggest.

    I think there is a certain order/stacking which is most stable and natural, which is the order the functions most often line up in. But they like to move around in response to different situations, and then their partner functions interact (like Ni responds to Se and so on), but they have a place where they feel most comfortable. Kind of like...a communal living place where people are always in each other's rooms because they like each other a lot, but they each have their own.

    I would suggest you study Fi some more and try and slow down and catch yourself evaluating. With the INFP everything Ne determines is fed through a machine which calculates its worth to you. Trust me, Fi dominance is really hard to miss in yourself if you know what you're looking for (I would use an example of a skyscraper sitting in the middle of a field.) Also, try and think back to your childhood - one of the two would have been absent.

    Fi-dom rules your inner world with an iron fist. Nothing inside your conscious mind will escape its evaluation and when it provides the results you can't ignore them. You aren't allowed to have any thought or emotion without Fi having its way and determining what you really think or feel about them. It's quite the dictator and it will be honest if you are walking down the wrong path. Even if you see it as a device which produces bias, impracticality and irrationality you are literally incapable of ignoring the conclusions it will come to.

    If you identify with the above then maybe you are an INFP or maybe I have mental health issues unrelated to MBTI. Probably one of those two.

    Well then you should consider ENFP instead and to be on the safe side I may consider seeing a psychiatrist. Just so all bases are covered. Fi for the ENFP is a supporting character, it comes along for the ride on whichever Ne journey you are on and gives little nuggets of advice and suggestions on how to proceed.

    That only means that you went to see the doctor (sane thing to do.) Many people know they have issues but still do not seek help for them.
