I've never seen myself as an EP type because that's too big of a leap, they have a completely different lifestyle and temperament from my own. I've mistyped as ISTP in the past because I did overestimate my Sensing, but I've always been aware of my Introversion and somewhat aware of my Thinking preference, those two I simply couldn't overlook. If the effect in question is really true for the majority of people, though, then I'd imagine that the MBTI statistics are really wrong and NPs make up most of the population. However, I don't believe that to be the case. I don't doubt people are biased, but I can question their self-awareness only so far.

    Yes OP that's basically how it works, the dom/aux functions are strong and come naturally to us, while the tert/inferior functions are weaker but we appreciate input on these functions.

    this is socionics territory though, as it places an emphasis on how each function is used according to the type. The ones in the functional stack (dom/aux/tert/inf) are the "valued" ones, whilst the shadow functions are not valued by the type, but still used of course.

    for an INTP for example, the intuitive and thinking functions will be strong, but they have a preference for Ti/Ne rather than Ni/Te. Se and Fi are weak just like tertiary Si and inferior Fe.
