Right.. when @faeruss was the only person who was typed at IIII, I had the sense that this was an ideal state, but that is just because I like the way his mind works and he seems like a stable, mature, thoughtful person, willing to recheck his opinions, philosophical yet pragmatic, spiritual yet real.  However, I won’t name names as it’s purely subjective, but there have been other people typed at IIII including celebs – whose maturity and perspective was extremely questionable to me.

On the other hand, I know some I—‘s who are just as brilliant as Faeruss although they are more specialized and less ‘well rounded.’ Personally I am a specializer in general, despite being III-  and I do value this kind of mindset highly. Sometimes I wish my Fi had never developed – I feel it slowed me down and made me more self conscious and clutzy, less seductive — then again, it was trauma which caused it to develop, and maybe it was the trauma itself and not the Fi that destroyed things I valued about myself, since the trauma of chronic illness is ongoing.

I decided after much internal ado, that there’s nothing particularly magical about any development.  I am not in a big rush to develop Ni, although I suspect it will happen because my Ni is not weak and it bubbles up adequately.  But I’m not seeing a hierarchy of goodness or intelligence personally. It’s all in how you use it.
