    How does the inferior function...function?

    is the inferior function somewhat like a secret superpower that we're usually not aware we have? (that sounds silly lol)

    for instance, i remember Von Hase mentioned that INFJs seem to do amazing Se feats despite it being our blind spot. how does the inferior function manifest in other types in a similar way?

    i'm really curious about this one :)

    I would guess our inferior functions are most present when we blend them with our other functions. Like Se helping Ni make a vital connection in a bit of information.

    No, inferior functions are the functions that are inferior.

    well that depends on what you mean by inferior, Ni is certainly no better the Se. But if you mean least used the yes that would be true.
