    But seriously guys Ni-doms ? Ni is all about vagueness, mysticism, not defining terms, poetic language. It's anything but geared towards critical thinking.
    Utter bullshit.

    This is the way I see it.

    Do you not think Fi fits in there as well?

    I would think Ti probably has a bit of an upper hand, though strong Ti users tend to be weaker at addressing people-concerns and weaker with external data and parameters. I can see why some might say Ni but I think the problem with Ni is that it's so hit-and-miss. Sometimes it's totally on target with its questioning but sometimes it leads to conclusions that are stunningly wrong and it is not flexible once it's set its course, and a huge aspect of critical thought is being able to question your own conclusions. So I think it's sort of out of the running for "best".

    But really, any person with any combination of functions should be perfectly competent at this. Whether or not one chooses to engage it is the more important question...

    Detailed function/critical thought breakdown in spoiler.

    Knee-jerk reaction would be Ti. But the definition of critical thinking includes objectivity where Ti is subjectively objective since it's an introverted function. So........fuck if I know.

    Yeah you are you said Ti Doms are good at critical thinking but ISTP's aren't but ISTPs are Ti dom, where is your logic here?

    Actually, no, I did not say Ti doms are good at critical thinking.

    I said Ti, and three other functions, Ne included, can be good at critical thinking.

    Thank you, once again, though, for demonstrating my point so clearly.

    I have to say, I find it truly odd that Ne is last in this poll...

    How it could possibly be behind Si and Se makes no sense to me...

    I find Fi with eight votes to be pretty funny. It's as bad as Si for a sheer lack of objectivity.

    And apparently you still can't read or critically think. (Surprise Surprise)

    The fact that I said Ti can exemplify strong critical thinking skills does not mean it inherently does.

    Any half-intelligent 5th grader could see the error in your reasoning, but let me spell it out for you:

    Ti can be good at critical thinking
    Johnny uses Ti
    Therefore, Johnny is good at critical thinking

    Now, I understand, considering your condition, you probably actually think that is a valid syllogism...

    Unfortunately, I can't really help you out with that...

    There's plenty of t people on here that think they have elite critical thinking skills compared to the f people. Yet many f people on here have a lot of those same t people beat when it comes to thinking critically. My point is that everyone doesn't like to see the truth and ts are more sensitive so they hide behind a wall of logic and then when the shit hits the fan the t people are the ones being overly emotional where the f people are like maybe they are as well the point is the f people are more likely to acknowledge things like that. And t vs f isn't a good indicator on how good one is at critical thinking
    In no likes experiment.

    that is all

    i dunno what else to say so
