    Fe = !
    Si = ,
    Ne = ?
    Ti = ()
    Te = :
    Ni = ...
    Fi = ;
    Se = .

    Holy crap my brain. I have just spent the last 2 hours proof reading and then stumble upon this. Bleh. Mind you those two hours were 3-5pm, Friday afternoon. Sweet fucking freedom!

    I don't know about the comma for Si, but the Fi one makes particular sense to me -- the two sentences are related -- sibling sentences -- so they are separated by the semicolon; it helps w flow if one sentence adds nicely to the other and serves as a visual cue to the reader that what's coming next will be directly related or give more info or description.

    I can't remember when I used semicolon.

    Why is it even important...?

    -Parens are Ne too - it essentially lets you go off on a tangent in the middle of what you're writing.
    -Comma is probably closest to Te but it's pretty neutral.
    -Somewhat agree with Se, at least using lots of short, punchy sentences is typical of Se ego writing.
    -! can be Se too obviously. I find Fe leadings tend to use a single exclamation point only.
    -Ni would be semicolon or some other obscure one But seriously, IEI writers love their long complex sentences.
    -? can be Ni too
    -Fi, Si, and Ti probably don't have good equivalents. Then again syntax as a whole is Ti.

    I have a huge love for semicolons and have never met another person who uses them as much in essays. As well as this - mark thing
