    There's a direct relation between Te and assertiveness, so that makes sense....INFP's tend to have issues with assertiveness in regards to making decisions.

    No, they just assert differently. Fi subjective values, authenticity, being true to self, is all a form of assertion.

    Saying that makes sense for that reason...actually makes no sense...because then what about ESTP, ENTP, ENFJ, etc.?

    Yes, it depends where you assert your energy. ENTP can be quite assertive by using their Ne to either get out of rough situations or expound their ideas. ESTP can be assertive when playing video games, exc....I just stated one instance/correlation.... That is, assertiveness is correlated to Te<-->(form of extroversion) If you create a function, there will be a relation here. Fi is internalized and rarely expressed outwardly, so it can be perceived as non-assertive on the surface, especially coupled with inferior Te. Also, inferior Fe can cause an INTP to fear rejection and hence, be submissive in regards to approaching other's because they may come across as odd. Therefore, the inferiority of extroverted functions (Te and Fe, specifically), can induce a negative response inversely proportional to assertiveness.
