    Default Rank the functions in order from strongest to weakest

    I'm guessing in order from strongest to weakest:

    Base (1), Demonstrative (8), Creative (2), Ignoring (7), Role (3), Mobilizing (6), Suggestive (5), Vulnerable (4)

    Thoughts?

    That makes sense. However, I think there's a distinction between strength and skill to be made. For example, I've seen rather illogical, poorly reasoning LIIs -- Ti may be their strongest function, but if they spend all their time in non Ti-valuing environments, they never really use their Ti. Without practice, they never really reach their full potential.

    This is, I think, where subtypes come from. If I spend all my life around Deltas, I'll probably wind up using my Ne more than my Ti, and become more skilled and comfortable using Ne than Ti, even though Ti is still my base function.

    That's an idea I've been mulling in my head for a while, anyway.

    1/7, 2/8, 3/6, 4/5 is the order of strength, I think.

    Er, yes, right. I always get the numbers in the Vital ring mixed up. Stupid weird numbering system...

    As I recall, 7>8 vs. 8>7 is an old debate among the Russians. I favor 8>7, with the qualification that 7 is more valued.

    I definitely find easier to use than .

    Subtype determines if 7 or 8 is more expressed, which knowing this is probably more important to me in the first place.
