What's the purpose of SEI?
The test repeats the same mbti misunderstandings as usual. Its worthless
A true sense-perception certainly exists, but it always looks as though objects were not so much forcing their way into the subject in their own right as that the subject were seeing things quite differently, or saw quite other things than the rest of mankind. As a matter of fact, the subject perceives the same things as everybody else, only, he never stops at the purely objective effect, but concerns himself with the subjective perception released by the objective stimulus.
(Jung on Si)
MBTI texts are accented on dichotomies and so their undestanding of functions can be worse. It can be lesser correct and detailed than in Socionics. If they don't notice wrong (and contradicting to Jung) functional model for introverted types, then they may have bad understanding of functions.
In the example given in 1st message is seen equal sum for T and F, what means test did not worked good for T/F dichotomy. Too much difference between close developed Si and Se may point on mistakes of understanding of those functions.
Jung type is what more expressed _in you_, what dominates in your consciousness. It's secondary about social average levels.

MBTI conflate cognitive preference with personal/behavioral preference. It said I’d likely be ISTJ as my MBTI type but from MBTI functions it’s ISXP aka Ti/Fi Se. The descriptions of MBTI ISTJ is most similar to LSI and I’m not either. I do have strong Ti and Fi development.

It’s possible the test gives insight into what your subtype would be. Banana King got Se and Ne highest irrational functions so C subtype. I know you claim H sub, Banana but C is where H wants to be or you could actually be C sub. I got Fi and Ti highest judgment functions and I’m normalizing subtype. MBTI definitions don’t translate over to socionics, nor does it have adherence to Jung but it could accidentally reveal a pattern, as I’ve suggested.
