    Introversion or extroversion is not about about behaviour but the bias in though process wither towards the subjective or objective.

    The way you process information will indeed change your behaviour.

    I don't think it could change your type completely since different areas of the brain are used for a single thought process. So to damage every part of the brain used for making your judgements would need damage to the entire brain. Saying that, obviously brain damage can cause personality and cognitive changes. It would more likely impair specific skills that you may be used to doing easily rather than an entire perspective. I would expect if necessary, a person might develop the tert or inferior function earlier to compensate for any serious irreparable damage.
    Just my opinion

    That's what I concluded as well. So an ENTP with a weakened Ti and a strengthened Fe to compensate would ultimately just be considered just that, yes?

    Nardi says we can change type in his google speech if you fire enough electric power at the right part of the brain in the right amount.



    I don't know where the hell he says that exactly though, unfortunately. You will have to watch the entire thing (I don't think you'll die though, you might learn something!).

    Here's an example I analyze of someone appearing to change type, based on brain hemispheres, when one side is injured:
