1. IEI

Fe+ (Fi-) // Si+ (Se-) ... strong (ego)

Fi- (Fe+) // Se- (Si+) ... weak ............................ extroverted (?)

Is this girl IEI or ILE?

2. Si- (analysis) ... ABCD --> A, B, C, D

Se+ (synthesis) ... '\' + '/' + '-' --> \/-

Si+ (synthesis) ... A + B + C + D --> ABCD

Se- (analysis) ... 'A' is on the left side of 'B', the distance between 'A' and 'D' is about one centimeter etc.

3. ILI's Se- (Si+) // Fi- (Fe+) and Fi+ (Fi-) // Se+ (Si-) could be extroverted.
This is Roger Pearman's suggestion.

INTJ: Ni Te Se Fe // Ne Ti Si Fi

ENTJ: Te Ni Fi Si // Ti Ne Fe Se

INFJ: Ni Fe Se Te // Ne Fi Si Ti

ENFJ: Fe Ni Ti Si // Fi Ne Te Se

4. Si+ (synthesis) ... A + B + C + D --> ABCD

Se- (analysis) ... 'A' is on the left side of 'B', the distance between 'A' and 'D' is about one centimeter etc.
This could be incorrect, since Si+ does not perceive spatial relations. Si+/- is about temporal-sequential relations. So Se- analyzes 'A', then 'B', then 'C' etc.

Se+ synthesizes structures/shapes: '\' + '/' + '-' --> \/- ... or A + B + C + D --> ABCD ... Here they are not perceived as patterns.

5. Is this the key difference between Si+ and Si- ?

Si+ zooms out ... spoon --> cereal bowl --> breakfast table --> kitchen --> home --> ??? an intuitive step (synthesis)

Si- zooms in ... home --> kitchen --> breakfast table --> cereal bowl --> spoon --> structures/shapes (analysis)

6. "In addition, users of type often forget that inferior or unconscious functions are inferior to consciousness not inferior in strength in the psyche (Jung, 1971 p.450)."

I think the functions seem strong or weak. High or low mental energy is probably a more accurate description.

PFC/working memory (logic and intuition) is about actual strength, though.

"Once a person is able to distinguish between the opposite functions and attitudes, the next requirement for good type development is that one of each pair become more conscious, accessible, practiced, and reliable than the other. This occurs when a person habitually devotes a larger amount of psychic energy to one of each pair of opposites, using it more, enjoying it more, becoming more and more confident and comfortable with it. This process of habitually favoring one of a pair of opposites over the other results in a psychological preference."

I don't think "enjoying it more" is accurate. ILI enjoys Se- (Si+) but there is a lack of patience since it easily flips back to Si+ (Se-).

ILI prefers Si+ over Si-, Fe+ over Fe- etc.

"To be clear, extroverts and introverts use both sides of their nervous systems at different times. But which side do we introverts generally prefer? You’ve probably already guessed: According to Dr. Laney, we prefer the parasympathetic side, which slows and calms us."

ILI is an introvert so he or she leads with Si+ instead of Fi+.

-----

There is a difference between "individual life activity" and "social life activity", so four preferred functions make sense.
