So I read somewhere that there is this contradictory nature in the types, in which despite of striving towards the ego functions it is the Id functions we ultimately act through. It gave an example by stating that it is ILE who tends to get involved with hands on, managerial activities, in order to implement their ideas and LIE is in fact the one who tends to work on developing abstract theories, in order to derive useful information from them. This actually seems to hold some weight based on personal experience and I'm beginning to wonder how this might apply across the types.
This seems to the most obvious in ESxjs. In reality I find LSEs and ESEs to be the most forceful, pushy types rather then Se base types. LSE uses force to push others towards productive activities and ESE exerts pressure on others to get them to conform to the group mood. Meanwhile SLE uses productive activities to achieve a sense of power and SEE feels power through influencing the moods of others.
Similarly I think it might be LIIs being the ones creating forecast and ILIs creating logical constructs, ESIs being the ones occupied with decorating their homes and SEIs managing their relations with others, and so forth.
I'm interested on what others might have to add to this and if they have seen any examples these sort of type contradictions play out in real life.
