    Why are Te/Fe users better at planning than Ti/Fi users?

    Te Dominant Types: ENTJ, ESTJ
    Auxiliary Te Users: INTJ, ISTJ

    Fe Dominant Types: ENFJ, ESFJ
    Auxiliary Fe Users: INFJ, ISFJ

    Ti Dominant Types: ISTP, INTP
    Auxiliary Ti Users: ESTP, ENTP

    Fi Dominant Types: INFP, ISFP
    Auxiliary Fi Users: ENFP, ESFP

    As you can see, all the J's have Te or Fe as their dominant or auxiliary functions.
    Here's my assumption for why this is so: Te and Ti users both prefer to judge the logic behind something, before they judge its value. However, the Te user relies on clues in the external environment to understand the logic, so they need time to analyze their surroundings before coming to a logical conclusion. The Ti user, on the other had, relies on clues from their own experiences and current understanding, so they are better at thinking on the spot and addressing the logic based on what they already know.
    Same goes for feelers: Fe and Fi users both prefer to judge the value of something, before they judge its logic. However, the Fe user relies on clues in the external environment to understand the value, so they need time to analyze how something will affect the people around them, take into account what seems ideal for others, before they judge the value of something. The Fi user, on the other had, relies on clues from their own experiences and current values, what seems ideal to them personally, so they are better at thinking on the spot and addressing the value based on their current ideals.

    This might also explain why typed "Thinkers" can be value-oriented while typed "Feelers" can be logical. It all depends on what how you prefer to think and feel, rather than whether you prioritize logic vs values. For example:
    -you may prefer to rely on the external environment to understand the logical and reasonable way, and then subsequently see what value it brings for you (Te/Fi)
    -you may prefer to rely on your own understanding and experiences to understand the logical and reasonable way, and then subsequently see what value it will bring to the external environment (Ti/Fe)
    -you may prefer to rely on the external environment to understand what seems ideal and valuable to everyone else, and then subsequently use your own understanding to judge what's the logical and reasonable way to attain that value (Fe/Ti)
    -you may prefer to rely on your own values and ideals to understand what seems ideal and valuable, and then subsequently rely on the external environment to see how logically and reasonable the value can be attained (Fi/Te).

    Any thoughts about this?

    I think you are focusing on the wrong functions. Ne/Se have more scatter gun approaches to perceiving life whereas Ni and Si are goal orientated. These mentalities are important to differentiating why Js are generally more organised than Ps. How they go about it is judgement based but why/if they go about it is perception based.

    All the types with J's have Si or Ni as their dominant/auxiliary functions, and I understand why that is so. But they also have Te/Fe as their dominant auxiliary functions as well...the Si and Ni are never paired with Ti or Fi as the dominant-auxiliary pair for the types with J's, so I was wondering if there was something about the judging functions that also accounted for that.
