His method was "a priori" which means accumulating experience and forming hypotheses that can explain experiences. This approach is called empiricism and is the preferred method of Si users. His method was criticized not because he didn't form hypotheses based on experience, but because his experience was so limited. He based his hypotheses on only a handful of patients. An Ni dom (an INTJ) would first form a hypothesis and then use inf Se to search for concrete examples of the hypothesis's translation into the physical world.

Established ISTJ. C'mon, guys. Carefully and scrupulously examining data and drawing inferences from only the DATA.

Sigmund Freud wasn't really ever backed by data. Empiricists were unsupportive of his theories because they weren't backed by logical evidence.

This is Te-symptomatic, not Si.
Both ISTJs and INTJs got Te.
