Using introverted thinking as his base function and extroverted intuition as his creative, the LII is adept at creating a concept (INTPs work on hard\tangible knowledge rather than abstract) (INTPs categorize and systematize possibilities through the Ti-Ne mechanism and are therefore perfectly adept at creating concepts, INTPs work on abstract knowledge rather than hard tangible data, which would be more indicative of ISTP)
of reality through the synthesis and application of preformulated principles and rules. (These are personal Ni conclusion and patterns that INTJ discovers and accumulates in his\her lifetime) (Actually, this is the application of internalized logical rules to the environment rather than the absorption of environmental data and dissemination of it to produce an insight into an external system; therefore, this is indicative of Ti over the Ni-Te mechanism)
When formulating new principles, the LII methodically analyzes new information, taking the salient aspects and discarding the extraneous. Staying within the boundaries of his principles, the LII is capable of generating new ideas and possibilities of how the world could work (Ne > Ni, Ni focuses on realistic probabilities rather than 'it's possible or could work')
. At its best, this ability gives the LII an aura of confidence and insightfulness into areas of abstraction and possibility that many other types don't have (abstract and possibility are N functions domain, so N-dominant type) (Ti tears apart externalized information and systematizes it, allowing the INTj to see the entire system through its individualized part and thus giving them the insight to how the system functions, much like a watchmaker with all of the individual mechanized parts of a watch whirring; it's the fact that they can break apart systems with such ease and logical scrutiny)
; at its worst, this ability may lead the LII to possibilities so impractical or unreachable that he is perceived as others to be out of touch with reality. (INTJs and INFJs are inferior in Se function, which is about immediate and present physical environment, if they fail to take physical circumstances into account in their abstract ideas, their ideas become inapplicable in reality...) (Unfortunately, this is Se being suppressed by Ne, where Se is the vulnerable function and thus ignored and even loathed, unlike the Se-inferiors, which would possess Se unconsciously and unconsciously gravitate to more realistic/probable (Ni/Se axis) solutions to problems rather than creative, expansive solutions that are not fairly tethered to reality (Ne/Si axis).)
Additionally, the LIIs inclination for deep isolated thoughts often leaves him disconnected from societal interaction--as if he is constantly an observer but never a participant. Learn more about the LII here!
