Introverted Sensing (Si): Captain America is known to be ‘the old man’ who likes to stick to his old traditions and tactics (as we can see when all the avengers are using the newest Stark-pad he is still using his old notebook to record things and in civil war when his teammates accuse him of being attached to his old ways). Captain also has a very good memory as when he fights Bucky, he (Bucky) says “still got the old moves, huh?” He also remembers how to operate hydra technology that existed about a hundred years ago. Captain is of course an outdated person (being asleep for 70 years) he quickly senses that something is wrong with the fake hospital he is in just by looking at the radio and the texture of the bed, showing that he is really in tune with his inner senses.
Extroverted Feeling (Fe): Captain America is known for his ability of sacrifice himself to save the most insignificant of the innocent population. He always thinks about how this action would affect and benefit others. In the avengers he says I’d lay on the barb wire and let the other person crawl over me. He in the civil war he is shown to offer support to the superheros, defying shield and the government of the United States of America, just so that he might protect the integrity of his fellow superheros. Heck, he was recruited to be Captain America just because he jumped over the grenade to absorb the impact, while his other friends ran away from it. His deep feelings towards the masses is a reason for his uprising as an ideal superhero.
Introverted Thinking (Ti): Captain America often surprises other avengers by his ability of problem solving. He is a very logical thinker and knows what would lead to what. He is known to take down enemies that were much stronger than him by exploiting their weakness and sometimes using their strengths against themselves (like when he defeated Dr. Doom using his own sonic blast wave). He knows the perfect spot from where he could infiltrate the enemies base and always has a plan to break out of it. He even surprises Tony Stark and Reed Richard showing how it was illogical for the superhero registration act to get passed, although he could not convince them, later leading to the civil war.
Extroverted Intuition (Ne): Captain often goes head to head with the taskmaster (who knows the moves strengths and weaknesses of every superhero in the Marvel Universe) and is known to be one of the few people who could beat him. This could only be the result of his ability to improvise and invent new moves. Although he is called ‘the old man,’ he surprises Stark by using a part of his technology to beat him during training compelling Tony Stark to say that,”Today, I am both impressed and humiliated by you Steve.” Although the Captain does not use this feature much in his everyday life, it remains his least expressed function being his personality.
