I often see people with their functions in their signatures, and they contradict their type to some extent. I know that not everyone fits the classic top functions of their type, but like, is it really possible? For example, is it possible for an INTP to have Te in their top four functions, provided they are still Ti dom?
Even in myself, I wonder. I seem to fit most descriptions of Ni to a T (I even predicted the future in a dream a few days ago), yet (as an ENTP) Ne seems to fit me really well too. Possibly not even as well as Ti, though I have a lot of Ne traits -- my mind is a mess, I start projects I never finish, I'm a very "what if" kind of person who will blurt out seemingly random things out of nowhere (they're not out of nowhere for me! My thoughts sort of branch out, like a tree.) The funny thing is, also, though I use a lot of Ti, I still use Te. But usually, my Te only comes out when I'm working on a project I'd really like to complete.
So can someone explain this to me?
I think for some people, those contradictory functions are learned behaviors, right? Like, I think I might have "learned" Ni and Te, I don't know if they come naturally to me, I think I probably picked them up somewhere down the line as I got older.
Is that likely?
