INTP is lead judger, ENFP perceiver. So, they just look at you, then use auxiliary Fi to figure out how you feel. The functions aren’t of equal strength or equal conscious use once identified.

Life is about breathing air, or else you suffocate and die, getting removed from existence. Life started off as RNA that over a million years started cloning itself and then was able to make DNA - deoxyribonucleicacid. It’s RNA without the oxygen atom on the phosphate 2 position.

The tertiary function is a resting state function and one of the most noticeable in a person. The dominant isn’t always the most obvious one you can see. In other words the tertiary function, in most people, as an underdeveloped, inferior function is almost always on. In ENFP it’s Te, extroverted thinking, unlike introverted thinking. Their other extroversion is lead Ne. Thus, they are almost always “active” or what can be considered “restless”. In INTP it’s Si, connected to auxiliary Ne. Introverts get “tired” around people and large crowds whereas extroverts get energized by all socialization, unless they want to be a dick, then they consider it small talk for convenience.

Edit: Keep in mind INTPs, supposedly, have inferior Fe. What then is the goal, assuming anyone is searching for balance?

ENFPs are more similar to INTJs because Fi and Te. What genes their remedial parents passed on to them is irrelevant.

Te is about the “proper” way of doing things (it’s “formal logic” whereas Ti is informal) and Fi is insecurity if they can’t or don’t express themselves in a way that accumulates attention and affirmation for their need/want to be recognized.

ENFPs inferior function is Si. INTPs inferior function is Fe (cross interacts with ENFPs Ne and Fi), however, the tertiary is Si. Therefore, ENFPs get annoyed by INTPs default M.O. and since ENFPs are poser intellectuals only in it to absorb adoration from people, their attempts at communication and socialization are just seen through not as petty but pathetic.

ENTJ is another potential type for INTP. But, the people around the INTP’s circle will just seek out Te people instead, once they see something going on there. It could also be ESTJ that works but both are highly variable from my experience: some of either type are either too simple minded or just refuse to entertain ideas outside their comfort zone, meaning they’ll never grow.

And with ENTPs, their tertiary is Fe, meaning it’s always on, and they aren’t that similar to INTP because of it. The timing is way too off most of the time (a Moby Dick element).

Thus, extraverts and the particular case of ENTPs, are more suited to breathing air. ENTPs are like INTPs but “bigger” in almost every imaginable way. They have no muzzle over their mouth and are more inclined to talk.

But, being “quiet” and not talking makes people look smarter, so a lot of them do that even though it doesn’t equate with actual smarts.
