How strong are your cognitive functions, INFJs? Or well, any personality type wanting to post?
What I mean when I say this is, how strong are your cognitive functions, how well developed do you think they are? How greatly do you feel them when you get them? How 'mature(d?)' are you, in that specific function?
Ni - I'm able to tell how a situation might turn out(Ti combined?), my Ni keeps me out of most of harms way, and it alerts me of 'psychic' or 'hallucinating' visions, or 'feelings.' It's probably normal for most INFJs, and even if I am wrong in my 'thoughts' (Which is rare but possible) I know that I'm not the 'wisest' or 'know-it-all' and that is what I see, what keeps me more open-minded and perceptive in this function. I'd say I'm 'Somewhat Mature' in this function, in it's strength. Not completely right, but one that is still developing 'balance'?
Fe - My empathy is strong, or well, I feel emotions within people whenever they don't even feel it themselves? (Combination of Ni as well?) Being the Core 4w5 that I am, I experience waves of 'needing to express affection.' I'm very strongly felt in my 'barrier' of emotions and defenses, and often appear 'intense and deep.' I can control my emotions to a great degree, but not always(still developing patience?). I'd say this is a Moderately Mature function, that is greatly felt in strength. And developing at a 'fastened' pace?
Ti - I'm a 451 Researcher tritype, so I guess it's not unusual for me to say that I expereince, 'advanced, critical' thoughts and ideas? I have strong Ti, but whenever I 'miss' something (combined with my Ni?) my Ti is something to blame, after reflection. I wouldn't say I'm 'inaccurate' nor 'know-it-all', but I'm still developing, and my 'thirst' for knowledge and ideas constantly create development for this function. I'd say I'm almost even more 'mature' in this function than my Ni. (Is that even possible?)
Se - During average conversation with me for any of you wonderful INFJs, (or NFs out there) - you may say I'm highly developed for a 14 year old, such as me, in all 3 of the functions above. But if you held a conversation for me long enough to say 'I'm tired', 'I'm hungry', or 'Candy.... ' - you would quickly realize, I have the WORST Se EVER. I mean, there have been times where I can easily control my impulses as much as a very patient, and 'elder' INFJ. I guess I would say this is an 'underdeveloped' or 'average' function. I need a lot of room for development, and will. XP... And sadly, this 'STRONG INFERFIOR' function gets in the way of that at times. So, it's a work in progress. :P...
What do you lovelies think? I'm sophisticatedly interested in your 'reflections' and 'perceptions' of your own self so you may realize some much needed insight in the future. :D And something to find out where you can work on in your wonderful persona. :)
