((WARNING: For some posters this thread be a big long fat 'Duh' but for others, I really hope I help clear up some of the fog.))
There appears to still be a lot of confusion with what functions are. What they mean, exactly.
Therefore, I will clear up all confusion about the functions for people. I understand the temptation to argue with me, but please do not do that, as that's not the point of the thread. Arguing here would be like trying to argue that the sky isn't blue. And I won't even mention that I'm gay all that much, or inappropriately reference buttsex and throat fucking!
Let's start with the function Se. Se means, in a nutshell, 'External Statics of Objects.' It means just that. An external object that's not in motion. A pen, a stapler, a human being. Anything physical, objective, concrete....that's not moving.
Protip: Se can mean anything you want it to mean, as long as it doesn't contradict with the raw definition. There's a lot of wiggle room with meaning, as it comes from within ourselves.
Can Se mean bullying? Possibly, but that's a far stretch cause to bully somebody else you usually have to be moving. =D So it isn't really a fair comparison.
However, Se isn't about our feelings or insights, so that's why, like all the external and objective functions it's associated with strength and power.
Se in a vacuum means *exactly* as it says it means. An external, static object. You could put all sorts of psychological impressions and dents into it, and make it mean whatever you want, but ultimately you are just feeding an illusion.
"So if I'm Se polr I don't like static objects?"
Technically, yes! That might sound weird (but people are weird and turned off by all sorts of things so what do you expect), but that's what the theory states. INFjs are stimulated by external objects IN MOTION, not static. Static objects make them uncomfortable.
We INFps are stimulated much more by frozen external objects (why I love playing Ice mages in rpgs and earth crowd controllers, and freezing things into place)
"But I'm INFj, and static objects don't make me uncomfortable."
Then either you're not INFj, or you're lying about your true weaknesses because you don't want other people to sociopathically make fun of you for them.
"But some objects can move and be static at once?"
Well yes, but if you like it when it's more moving, that's a Te-orientation. If you like it when it's more static, that's a Se-orientation. If you equally like it being static or moving, and just don't give a shit either way - that's more of a gamma orientation. Depending on your quadra and type, you might not even have an inner confliction about that.
And it of course depends on where Se/Te is in your psyche. Hidden agenda means just that: Something you really want, but you keep it on the downlow.
For example if your hidden agenda is Te, you will want other people to be all businessy and moving and hustle and bustle American Society-ish, but you won't be all egoic with it or outwardly demanding about it. If you have Te ego, like an ENTj or ESTj you will more outwardly criticize other people for not using business logic enough.
Te doesn't necessarily relate to business logic, but the analogy is really close because all Te means, is external dynamics of objects. Objects in motion. In the business world, everything is about external goods being exchanged rapidly. Right?
See? A perfect example of using a correct analogy, because that one doesn't contradict with the core essence of what Te is: External Dynamics of Objects or "Objects in Motion." It agrees, enhances, and 'goes along with it.'
Now if you try to say "Well, I'm Te-ego and that means I'm a better thinker than you, and that means I am more factual than you INFps" you are just full of shit. No, your orientation is to be stimulated by moving external objects... That's why you probably like business and capitalism (Like Ashton does, and he's ENTj) but it's not necessarily so.
An INFp can be WAY more factual and truthful than an ENTj. (In fact a common supervision technique of the ENTj is that the INFp is simply being too honest in a way that hurts only them) So cut that out! It's a negative stereotype. I can see how you would think that, but it's just not very smart. An INFp can also be filthy disgusting rich, but more often than not they will become rich by becoming an artistic celebrity and writer of a great novel, not by becoming a capitalist CEO of a company.
