Regarding the famous MBTI test, I am confused about how stable are the four indicators?

As of my experience, most people are certain whether they are introverted or extroverted. For the other three indicators, however, for some people it differs a lot for short-term and long-term actions. For example, I know a lot of people who are:

  • Extremely XNFP for short-time actions (e.g. what to do for tonight). They procrastinate a lot and do stuff based on their feelings.
  • but at the same time are extremely conservative and XSTJ for important life decisions (e.g. choosing a career, finding a research topic, etc.). Their such decisions are almost accurate and based on logical reasoning.

How could we effectively use MBTI interpretations for such people?
