    Where exactly did anybody say that anywhere in this thread?

    Besides, this is not about being a robot.

    According to some of the definitions of Introverted Thinking, it seems as though this function can be described as taking a holistic, right-brained approach to observing and understanding the variables, causality, and inner-mechanics of an idea or situation. This information is generally too specific to subjective experience and too ethereal for most Extraverted Thinking to understand.

    The aspects of this general definition which seems to illuminate a connection between this function and most notions of Critical Thinking would be in how Critical Thinking is, much like Introverted Thinking contrasted to Extraverted Thinking, involved in understanding the logical consistency inherent in the mechanics of an argument, idea or any system of principles which rely on self-consistency in order to function reliably. Critical thinking, unlike problem-solving, is less directed towards the application of ideas to a conflicting situation, and more concerned with the overall logical cogency of an intellectual construct, regardless of the construct's intentions towards the external. Furthermore, in order to use critical thinking effectively, one needs to have an understanding of a "situation's many variables", in order to judge that the "larger picture" is being sustained by the smaller components acting in synchronicity with one another, regardless of one's ability to interpret the rules from more linear processes
    It's when the pieces of the puzzle don't seem to fit or that something important is left out that Ti gets anxious.

    It's more when you become aware of innate reasoning errors in supposed professional's arguments and viewpoints that causes a significant amount of mental distress. It's just how we work.

    There seems to be something, let us call it the Ti headache, that makes you cringe and go up the walls when somebody uses an abusive quantity of logical fallacies in his or her argumentation.
    It says an abusive quantity of logical fallacies is bothersome. Nowhere does it claim personal superiority.

    Sorry. I was just being snippy. It's first thing on a Monday.
    I get it. You hate logical incoonsistency. That's reason enough not to watch those morning political shows! For your own health, stay away from theblaze.com (G Beck's site).

    ^ Excellent advice here.

    Maybe assistance for this persistent unease could be addressed too

    I'm glad you didn't decide to create another headache for us =P And the thing about political shows and G Beck is also good advice for all of our health...

    Yup, I've got a friend who often calls me just to let go of some steam because of some bs he's been reading or hearing somewhere.

    And it's a bit unhealthy to sustain longterm.

    That's what I hoped to get out of starting this thread.

    Commune with nature. Don't hang out with people who talk incessantly. Do something creative, not mental.

    Ti as a dominant function can give its environment a headache. Tylenol 3's used to help. - Ex-Ti serial dater.
