Wouldn't this work similarly to Gulenko's theory of the Erotic Roles....Caregiver (Si)+ Infantile(Ne) and Aggressor(Se)+Victim(Ni)?

I see it as a sort of Master-Apprentice relationship. After the pair are comfortable with each other, the Apprentice (the partner with the IM as their HA) will start showing the Master (the partner with the IM as their creative) their The Master will compliment the Apprentice when they use the function, and will offer assistance and suggestions. With the 1st/5th functions the partners will laugh at the others' attempts and rush in to save the day, but with the 2nd/6th functions there's less teasing and more concerted efforts to help the other improve.
My parents are ESE-Si (mum) and LII-Ne (dad). My mum is the caretaker of the house - cooking, sewing, etc. - but every once in a while my dad decides to cook for everyone, or fix his own clothes, or buy us clothes (yeah, LII father trying to buy his teenage daughters jeans - NOT GOOD). My mum will take us quietly aside and tell us to be supportive, even if it's really bad, because otherwise my dad's feelings will get hurt.
I can't think of an Ne example at the moment.
"With the 1st/5th functions the partners will laugh at the others' attempts and rush in to save the day" What do you mean by this?
Does this mean if I saw a Se Dominant type failing at Ni I would laugh at them and take over the situation?
It's like when you see a little kid trying to lift something that's way too big for them and you're like "awww, let me do that for you". It's super easy for you (it's not even work!), and it's cute that they were struggling a lot with it.
