Te and Ni is your biggest strengths. You're other two functions are only there to provide relief to the first two.

Adding to what @Duo said,
I would say that it is the ability to identify the core of the problem and how to solve it.
This is specially true for fellow NF types, (I'm sorry I can't work with S types, they drive me nuts) who are generally very grateful for the clarification we make.

I follow @Duo too. I always think NFs are the link between the NTs and S types. They can put things in to language a S can understand. SJs drive me crazy wanting everything in inordinate details, it smells incompetency and internal lack of self confidence in themselves which makes me want to scream at SJs.

I'm still perplexed by ESTJs. Used to think they were wannabe ENTJs, just not so cleaver. But met a few very bright ESTJs which is why I'm still confused. Possibly be brigged for typism now.

Really? Please explain?
You like surprises? You can change your plans at the last minute? You are tolerant/accepting to people?

I would say the ability to solve problems and difficult situations in a smooth and quick manner.

That and the ability to ensure efficient execution.

When put into a situation I have the cunning & resilience to come out on top.

Oh of course...
But side question (realised that the question is about strength and not preference/likeliness), do you like these situations? Unplanned ones.

ou, some of these listed are pretty good ones.
I think I may also have to go with adaptability/flexibility and efficiency. When I'm thrown into something by random I'm completely fine with it. I don't get thrown off or rattled. I execute and get shit done.
I also would think my passion for learning is probably a huge strength too. I love to learn. I will spend time researching, learning new things, taking on new areas of interest ie learning languages or artistic techniques, cooking etc. I love to learn.

Ah, I think I would disagree somehow though.
Of course if an imprévu happens, I'll deal with it.
But I always think and calculate all my actions and consequences, and when something out of my control happens, I'm not happy.
It's either because i hadn't envisaged it or because things are not going according to plan.
Of course I will steer the wheel back to the right track, but I don't like surprises on the whole. It's like, my way or the high way.
Situation:
I'm going to movie tonight and I already planned what time I'll be leaving the house, where I'm going to go and get to the theatre on time because I want to talk to my friends before the movie starts. Someone (not a close friend) unexpectedly calls me and asks me whether it would be fine for me to give them a lift, to which I agree but have to adjust my schedule to leave home earlier because they are not exactly on the way.
When I get to that friend's place, I found out that she is not ready yet (even though she had called an hour ahead) and so I have to wait 5 (or more) minutes for her to leave her house. Then on the way to there she politely (of course) asks whether I would mind stopping at this shop for a sec, for her to buy a scratch card/cigs. The parking slots are full in front of the shop and I have to double park (while still in the car) and this unsettles me. What further unsettles me is that the shop wasn't completely empty and she had to wait 5 more minutes for her turn.

This situation would frustrate me; (i) how could you still take that long to get ready when you've had an hour and you knew the exact time I would be coming and (ii) don't you know that you made me late already (not for the movie, but for socialising) and you still ask to make a stop before the destination?
n.b. I wouldn't have refused her request because we still had time before the movie starts for a quick detour when she made her request ; and also because I wasn't very close to her.

I would probably try to limit the damages by driving a bit faster than usual and being more alert on the road, and would probably get there on time for some socialising, but not all the socialising I was planning to do. Of course I could catch up with my friends after the movie, but it's just that I had planned to start a lot earlier.

I think my biggest strength, and sometimes my weakness ,is discipline and drive. Once I want something badly ,I'll do everything in my power to get it.
