I'm certainly no pro. I would suggest learning the functions and their poles which is fundamental to the theory. I will try.
By your own admission, you've said that you're not sure about the T/F or J/P preference. What did you settle on for I/E or especially S/N?
Personally I'm thinking IxFJ. There seems to be strong Fe, but it's not too much stronger than Ti because of the desire for things to "make sense" or be "logical." Then it's about determining if the Ni/Se is really out of whack or Si/Ne. I find this distinction hard with internally focused primary/first functions because the externally facing one is inferior. Usually this is figured out by a "I don't see this, therefore it's that" type process of elimination.
I hate to try and define functions because they mean different things to all of us which is part of the problem with Cognitive Theory, MBTI and it's ilk. "Ne" may be defined by psychological freedom where objects are symbols rather than what they physically are in our space which would be "Se". Ne may be time-malleable while Se is in the present. As far as Si or Ni, I've happened across descriptions that Ni is low-res/low-fi memory while Si is high-def memory. Ni narrows outcomes where Si is the lasting impression of an outcome or event.
Realistically what type you are, or any of us might be is moot if the goal is self-actualization and harmonious interpersonal relationships. Even being mistyped can help us discover more about ourselves and the people around us.

I agree that traditional stacking doesn't work in application... and so do a lot of other people if we're doing different models of the same functions or are people getting behind those who have come up with other ways of stacking functions.
Anxiety, if of specific occurrence, can indeed muddle the functions expression. So what seems inclination for Feeling in extraverted direction could instead be a very specific display, out of temporary necessity.
Though if part of long term display (since early childhood to adulthood) I would said it is a function being part of the type you are.
In the end you are the one best placed to pinpoint your natural inclinations on used cognitive functions, and which model to use for typing yourself.
Again, good luck in your typing search !
My first guess was INFJ. Just like others I was more confident in typing you as F than as N. Friends say that you are smart and you are apparently able to make desicions that are logical and rational. But it is important for you not to push others and make sure that they are ok with your decisions. Belonging, inclusion and group harmony is one of your most important values, is there something you value even more? You claim that you felt at your finest when studying. Is there any particular moment when you felt extremely well, because of belonging/inclusion? Maybe you wish to experience moments of high intensity related to belonging, maybe you just want to avoid lows.
As for J/P, this one is tough, because society pushes us towards J. So far scheduling gives more weight to J, because you do it voluntarily.
