    I've noticed you do that, but I decided to mess with you anyway since I couldn't come up with anyother response. Stupid flu.

    remember, Ni and Si, though very different work in a very similar fashion, Fe vs. Te, Ti vs Fi, Se vs Ne, and so on
    Hmm. The last part was helpful. I've somehow managed to notice the difference between Si & Ni, for the rest I'm still trying to grasp the idea. But I've got bunch of descriptions in front of me.

    im sure people are sick of me pushing function orientation but guess what, im going to push it yet again lol sorry guys

    to make a long story short, functions are pointless as individual entities. they dont do anything. its like a quarterback on a football team without other team mates and the only thing he knows how to do is throw the ball. pretty much, hes screwed.

    this is the long story. the way I see functions, in the most simple and general form is this: the first two functions are two scholars that are both wise (in two different but somewhat related fields) but they are both speaking different languages. the tertiary function is the translator between the two "scholars". the shadow lends itself as backup and in many cases determines how good the tertiary is at "translating".

    ok im done

    Naturally. For example, I take the most data in through extraverted intuition, and make decisions with introverted thinking. data without processing is useless, as is decision without information. (But I still think f.a. does a silly job explaining things).
