2.) I struggled with witty comebacks a lot in middle school, especially during my confrontations with bullies. I remember frequently having those moments of "Oh! I could have said that!", I still have them but with a decreased frequency. Argue with me online, and I will retaliate with a clever comeback in a matter of seconds. For some reason, I'm marginally slower in real life. Right now, I definitely have a penchant for witty banter and clever word play. But some of that gets wasted because I'm socially anxious. I also seem to have a split personality. One day, I'm enthusiastic, playful, humorous and witty. The next day, I'm cold, emotionless, reserved and sarcastic.
I think my parents might have an inadvertent influence on my doubt regarding my type. Around them, I'm a total introvert because of the discrepancies in our lifestyles, thoughts, opinions, etc. This may have caused me to over-develop my Ti as a late teenager (15-18). In their absence, even though I'm still somewhat introverted because of my social anxiety, I'm definitely using Ne. I also use more Ne than Ti when I'm browsing on the internet. And yet, the INTP set of functions aligns more reasonably with the Beebe's model of cognitive functions.
