They are cognitive functions as found in your MBTI type code.

Below all mean the same thing in different language if you like.

- ISTJ
- Si-Te-Fi-Ne
- Introverted Sensor(Si), Extroverted Thinker(Te) with Introvert Feeler(Fi) and Extroverted iNtuition(Ne) (functions)

As an ISTJ your brain uses Si and Te most of the time, then maybe Fi sometimes as a backup and Ne under stress.

Also see: Myers-Briggs eight functions carl jung, jungian cognitive functions, mental functions

To take this a bit further, as you mature you will begin to use the various functions a bit more. Your dominant function (Si) will come into play between 6-12 years, your auxiliary (Te) between 12-20 years, your tertiary (Fi) by age 25 and your inferior (Ne) around age 35. It varies a bit by individual, but by age 50 most everyone is pretty comfortable in using their four primary functions.

Some people map out all their 8 functions, the normal 4 letter type code and the 4 shadow functions. We use all 8 functions at some point in our lives and some people like to work out the order of all 8. Not sure about the Si+Te=? thing but I think I've seen that somewhere too.

If you want to find out your full function development, this test is quite good (if it still works): Keys 2 Cognition - Cognitive Processes

Interesting. Is this your opinion based on experience or that a concept that is generally accepted?

Also, what exactly is Extroverted Thinking? It can't be what I'm thinking, which is when someone "thinks by talking". I never do that and I can't stand it when my Dad corners me into a conversation just so he can work out his thoughts. He doesn't have a conversation, he just talks and talks and talks and talks without including me in the conversation. I just have to pretend to listen and nod.:dry:

Both. This has been my experience and is also generally accepted in MBTI.

This link has a brief description of the cognitive functions:

is TI supposed to be that high
Cognitive ProcessLevel of Development (Preference, Skill and Frequency of Use)
extraverted Sensing (Se)******************(15.8)unused
introverted Sensing (Si)************************************************(45.2)excellent use
extraverted Intuiting (Ne)***********************(20.7)limited use
introverted Intuiting (Ni)*************************(22.1)limited use
extraverted Thinking (Te)*************************************************(46.4)excellent use
introverted Thinking (Ti)********************************************(41.9)excellent use
extraverted Feeling (Fe)**********************(19.9)limited use
introverted Feeling (Fi)******************************(27.6)average use

i had weird result for my enneagram too

I think there is a question or two on that test that is a bit off for the Ti function. Almost everyone gets a higher than expected Ti rating.
