    Functions of INTP with Preferences of ISTP?

    I have a friend who I'm quite sure, holistically speaking, is an INTP (5w3 or 1). However, he has a very strong Si and relies on it quite a bit. Additionally, I think his Ni is a lot stronger and utilized more often than his Ne. If I gave a rough order, I'd say his functions were somewhere along the lines of:

    Ti > Ni > Si > Ne > Te> Se > Fe > Fi

    It seems like a lot of people argue that INTP's Ne preference over Ni (according to the theoretical chart) is something of a fatal flaw for them. In theory, I'd agree, but it seems like most INTP's that I know in general tend to have a stronger Ni than Ne, even if they don't rely on it more often. Of course this is highly subjective, but I was wondering if I could get some opinions on the matter.

    Thanks.

    He's whatever you want him to be. It's a winter wonderland.

    My Ni is stronger than my Ne on all tests. Actually, I think all of my introverted functions are higher on typing tests.

    My Ni and Ne are almost as strong. Si is quite weak though.

    I agree though that it is flawed to say that Ne is a requirement for INTP. Jung identified himself as TiNi. I also use Ni a lot.

    I am not sure what the purpose of this thread is by the way. He's an INTP with a strong Si. Nothing strange with that.

    I've also noticed huge disproportional measure between theoretical functions and applied functions in INTJ's. Si is supposed to be their worst shadow function, yet it seems that for INTJ's that I know personally and also just famous archetypes Si tends to be one of their most well developed and utilized functions. INTJ's, after all, tend to have encyclopedic knowledge of their field. I've noticed this with well developed INFP's and ISTJ's as well.

    Was this about me? (this is ian btw), I think my function order is Ti>Ni>Si>Te>Fe>Ne>Fi>Se

    Si is based around the recollection of past data, isn't it? If that's the case, is it that surprising that almost all types would be a bit Si-heavy, considering all the remembering you do in school? Plus all the remembering required for daily life is just ughhhhh. Even if it's a demonic function, I would probably say that no one, or very few, would have Si as their least developed function.
