If each type exactly abides by its respective functions, then certain people can switch around certain functions. Theoretically, let's say that pre-Reich Hitler was likely an ENFP. He was interested in arts, peaceful, and probably well-off. That means art-school stage Fuhrer used Ne, Fi, Te, and Si. However, towards his rise to power, he developed INFJ habits. Main Kampf and other analyses have caused most to type him as INFJ. That means his functions wer inverted, as his extroverted functions became introverted and vice versa. So he went from Ne, Fi, Te, and Si to Ni, Fe, Ti, and Se. Is this possible to you guys? Has it happened to anyone you know of? Other examples would be an INTP who decides to take charge and put his ideas to action, thus becoming an ENTJ. Another example of this function inversion is how in Huey Lewis and the News's Hip To Be Square, the man goes from a wild ESTP to a calm, order-loving ISTJ. However, that case is different, since it is a switch between temperaments. When Hitler went from ENFP to INFJ, he remained an Idealist. But when Huey Lewis went from ESTP to ISTJ, he changed from an SP Artisan to an SJ Guardian. So what does the INTP forum think of this?
