    No offense, but no one will understand your test, and even if they do, any decisions they make about it will be riddled with uncertainty.

    Weirdness abounds. Weirdness abounds. Extremely and hopelessly biased selection dead ahead. Please modify course at least 7 degrees to either side and try again.

    Really? It's that hard to understand? Whatever, I'll work on it. It's just kind of hard to ask of someone thinks that Si is the opposite of Te or the opposite of Fe in ordinary language.

    Ah, so that is the matter.

    I personally think Si is the opposite of Fe, not Te, because both S and T focus on objectivity and what is there (S with the tactile, T with the conceptual), while both N and F focus on subjectivity and what might be (N with the world, F with people).

    Yes, I believe that the tendency to view Si as sort of the opposite of Fe is an attitude shared by members of the beta and delta quadra and is especially pronounced in the sociotypes ENFj, ISTj, ENFp, and ISTp. This is what I unsuccessfully tried to express in writing option D. Oh well. I really like this idea though. Perhaps I need to express my thoughts in a more concise and articulate manner.

    ...On the other hand, perhaps certain forum members would like to volunteer information as to how their 1st function seems to oppose their 4th and how their 5th opposes their 8th? For example I know that in one thread here, an INTj defined the difference between an INTj and an ESFp as being part of the basic conflict between hedonism and asceticism.

    Yes, stop freaking us all out with these abrupt impressions that some of socionics' old gurus had started posting again after having been dormant for centuries.
