I will not say that quadra does not influence such things, but I would not get stuck in a stereotype if I were you.

To expand upon PoLR - I'll try. I'm still trying to understand it myself. Basically, you're very bad at this function and you know it. Since it's in your Super-Ego block, which holds conscious and painful functions, you don't really want other people telling you you're bad at it. Wikipedia says something about a basic inability to use one's PoLR, but I sharply disagree. If you need more, I'll try.

Can someone please explain Fi PoLR vs Fe PoLR? I'm confused now.
Thanks Kanerou, that explains a lot and I think that your theory of socially-motivated compensation is very interesting. However I believe that INTJ's PoLR is Se, not Fi. I also had a minor in math and wanted a double major in math with physics but I took too many other credits for pure inspiration (such as behavior modification and animal behavior) and so had to graduate early. I also don't have a definite verbal bias if that's what you're thinking (I scored much higher in the math than the verbal both times I took the SAT).
