    The functions are essentially cognitive orientations to life:

    --With Sensation, we process information consciously, recognizing manifest
    opportunity and the means to make use of it.

    When we do this in an Extraverted way (Se), we're guided by conscious perceptual
    experience
    , and our focus is on exploiting a situation's immediate creative potential.
    Se asks: What can I do with this?

    When we do this in an Introverted way (Si), we're guided by conscious perceptual
    impressions
    , and our focus is on the realistic relationship of new perceptual events
    to existing bodies of meaningful information. Si asks: Where does this belong?

    --With Intuition, we process information unconsciously, recognizing contextual
    meaning and inferred potential.

    When we do this in an Extraverted way (Ne), we're guided by unconscious
    perceptual experience
    , and our focus is on the contextual pattern that relates
    otherwise disparate facts to each other, increasing possibilities for change. Ne asks:
    What does this mean?

    When we do this in an Introverted way (Ni), we're guided by unconscious
    perceptual impressions
    , and our focus is on alternative interpretations of existing
    perceptual meaning. Ni asks: What's been left out?

    --With Thinking, we analyze information impersonally, determining cause and effect.

    When we do this in an Extraverted way (Te), we're guided by goal-oriented logic,
    and our focus is on the efficient cause, the principle or agent that will move a chain of
    events from a past outward condition to a specified result. Te asks: How does this
    work?


    When we do this in an Introverted way (Ti), we're guided by a sense of intrinsic
    logic
    , and our focus is on the formal cause, the inherent structural principles that
    underlie a process. Ti asks: What is essential (the a priori cause)?

    --With Feeling, we relate to information personally, accepting some things and
    rejecting others.

    When we do this in an Extraverted way (Fe), we're guided by relational values, and
    our focus is on bringing people together in common cause and fostering responsibility
    to shared ideals. Fe asks: How do I relate to this?

    When we do this in an Introverted way (Fi), we're guided by a sense of intrinsic
    value
    , and our focus is on responsibility to fundamental human values by way of
    affective and experiential identification with others. Fi asks: What if that were me?

    Hmm, not sure if I agree with those...

    I'd say it's more like this:

    Se: What's going on out there? - External stimuli are noticed
    Si: Does this appear to be correct? - Internal stimuli are noticed

    Ne: What's the hidden implication of that? - Concerned with what's not immediately apparent about a situation
    Ni: What is the truth about this? - Concerned with the application of knowledge to a situation

    Te: Does this work efficiently? - Concerned with external regularity
    Ti: Does this flow from everything else? - Concerned with internal regularity

    Fe: How does this impact the group's standards? - More of the "putting yourself in someone else's shoes" - things are done because you might be in their position in the future
    Fi: How does this impact my own standards? - Assemblage of value statements and judgments from received information filtered through personal impact, more cognizant of a sense of truth than concerned with how others would feel in a situation
