Dominant Functions

"Introverts use their dominant function in their inner world because, by definition, they prefer to live in their inner world. Their development of the dominant function is less visible." source

For example:
an ENFJ shows their dominant Feeling function to the world, 
whereas an INFJ keeps their dominant Intuition inward and shows their auxiliary Feeling

  • Dominant Function - This is the function that most strongly governs the personality.  It holds the strongest influence and is the function that one is most comfortable using.  Auxiliary Function - This is the second strongest preference and helps assist and balance the dominant function.
    Tertiary Function - This function can be a handicap early in life, but as one grows will develop into a helpful and eye-opening asset.
    Inferior Function - This function is a point of weakness.  It is mostly unconscious and often the cause of misunderstanding and stress.

     16 Types:  1st (Dominant) 2nd (Auxiliary) 3rd (Tertiary) 4th (Inferior)
