Let's take the INTJ and ISFP for this question.
The functions of the INTJ would be Ni > Te > Fi > Se, and Fi > Se > Ni > Te for the ISFP.
Now the typical career where the INTJ function order would be ideal is likely applied physics. Taking abstract concepts grasped by the Ni and apply them to reality via Te. But the ISFP also has Ni and Te as his functions, although they are inferior. Let's say the ISFP pursues a career in applied physics, where it's inferior functions would be used and with that I assume also develop. Would after a certain amount of time those functions become the primary functions, even when not working on some sort of engineering project ?
