    Nice work. Particularly agree with your Extroverted Sensation and Intuition difference, in that one is based on concrete observation, the other indirect inference.

    My only query is your distinction between Extroverted and Introverted Feeling. To my mind, the key distinction is the former seeks external (social) harmony while the latter internal harmony. So introverted feeling need not include consideration for others, altho it can. Its more about forming a coherent inner world of feeling-based values, and upholding and regulating that.
