    Yet More Cognitive Functions Descriptions!

    A fairly accurate description I stumbled upon...

    Ne
    As your dominant function, Ne makes you a person who is interested in the world around you. In one way, Ne is curiosity. But it is not just the details of the world that interest; it is how, behind those details, there is a bigger picture or larger pattern. And so another way, Ne is brainstorming. You can leap from a few immediate cues to a quick impression of the whole. To you, the bigger pattern was always there, waiting for someone to discover it.
    For example, given enough elements to suggest a star or a square, you have a hard time not filling in the blanks and seeing the compete image. Whatever you find, there is something more to find: a broader context, a whole, which will change your understanding of the part. And once you've grasped a whole pattern, you can envision options that don't yet exist.
    You see the outer world as having whole range of possibilities and meanings, and with them a range of different paths to follow. Your Ne function helps you think 'outside the box' and go beyond traditional or currently accepted assumptions and beliefs to develop innovative new ways of seeing and doing. Ne continually welcomes the unknown, and is always ready to adjust in unforeseeable ways.

    Ti

    Supporting and balancing your dominant, outwardly-directed Ne is your inner-focused auxiliary function of Introverted Thinking (Ti). Your Ti sees the world as a question to be answered and life as a journey towards understanding. Ti wants – needs – to know how things work.
    But Ti is about more than just 'theory'. Through direct, firsthand experience, your Ti will seek a clear visual picture of how different parts of a system work together. Your Ti will often lead you to take things or ideas apart so as to understand how they work; Ti knowledge comes through the fingers, not through the ears or the eyes.

    Fe
    The Extroverted Feeling function seeks social connections and strives to create harmonious interactions with others. Fe responds to the other's needs, expressed and unexpressed, and prompts a person to adjust their behavior to serve those needs. Evidence of Fe is seen through the 'social graces', such as being polite, being nice, being friendly, being considerate, and being appropriate.

    Si
    As an inferior function Si can lead an ENTP to working longer and harder but less effectively; chronic anxiety and persistent feelings of sadness and despair; loss of enthusiasm and motivation combined with social withdrawal; and the continual imagining of new possibilities in your life but without any follow-through.

    I like the Ne and Ti descriptions quite a lot.

    And! Isn't it amusing how as the functions become less dominant, the descriptions become shorter and less detailed.

    I agree! This is the ISFJ page, so the Fe, Si descriptions are more developed....

    Si
    As your dominant function, Introverted Sensing (Si) leads you to continually gather information from the world around you – and then store it away in your warehouse-like memory for later recall. In fact, you are able not merely to recall the past, but to relive it, almost as if you were there again. In great detail you can compare past details – whether about people, places or events – with the present ones and notice what is different and what has remained the same.
    You have a fear of the unknown and the unpredictable that makes you cautious in life. As an everyday example, you would typically allow some extra time when leaving on a trip – you never know what could happen to disrupt your journey and make you late.
    Because you view the outer world as full of potential hazards that could strike at any stage, you follow a personal set of goals, commitments and priorities that you rely on as a type of map to guide you through life.

    Fe
    Supporting and balancing your dominant, inner-focused of Si is your outwardly-directed auxiliary function of Extroverted Feeling (Fe). Your Fe gives you a desire to connect with others in a spirit of warmth and consideration.
    It is what encourages you to create harmonious interactions and environments. Others see your Fe through your 'social graces', such as your being polite, being nice, being friendly, being considerate, and being appropriate.

    Ti
    Your Introverted Thinking function sees the world as a question to be answered and life as a journey towards understanding. Ti wants – needs – to know how things work. But Ti is about more than just 'theory'. Through direct, firsthand experience, Ti seeks a clear visual picture of how different parts of a system work together.
    Your Ti will often lead you to take things or ideas apart so as to understand how they work; Ti knowledge comes through the fingers, not through the ears or the eyes.

    Ne
    As an inferior function Ne can lead an ISFJ to a mindset of total negativity and pessimism. You may become uncharacteristically spontaneous, thoughtless and impulsive – perhaps even doing no work for long periods of time. You may lose your usual ability to organize facts and details logically. And your obsessive thinking about problems can lead to many sleepless nights. In its most extreme form, Ne can lead an MBTI to totally shutting down.



    I think the reason the description's place less emphasis on the tertiary and inferior functions is because they want to show how each type is influenced by each function based on their other functions?
