I was reading this blog, specifically the part about functions as below:
"The four "rational" or "judging" functions are:
Te: Extroverted Thinking - The utilitarian function. Te whittles down possible courses of action by testing them for their utility and feasibility. People who make prominent use of Te tend to use a heuristically-oriented form of thinking in which the first possible solution that appears to be both useful and workable is chosen. "Will it work?"
Ti: Introverted Thinking - The logical function. Ti is the kind of thinking we use when writing proofs in math class. It takes things one step at a time and likes to arrive at the best answer - along with an argument for why it's the best answer. Of the rational functions, Ti is generally the slowest - but also the most likely to arrive at an optimal solution (assuming that there exists an objectively optimal solution). "Is it correct?"
Fe: Extroverted Feeling - The affiliative function. Fe arrives at decisions in a similar manner as is used by Te - the main difference being that Fe is more concerned with helpfulness than usefulness. Also like Te, Fe is heuristically-oriented and tends to snap to the first satisfactory solution rather than laboriously looking for the best of all possible approaches. Combined with the instinctive nature of "feeling" thought, Fe is generally the fastest of the decision-making functions (but also the one that tends to generate the greatest number of way-off conclusions which then have to be filtered out by peer critique or personal reflection). "Will it please?"
Fi: Introverted Feeling - The moral function. Fi is a form of decision-making thought anchored in one's internal moral code. Decisions made using Fi will settle upon the course of action which lies closest to the decision-maker's personal values. "Is it right?""
What I'm wondering is, where does "does it fit" fit?
Now, I could have restructured the previous sentence for ease of reading, but I'm leaving it "as is" to illustrate my point.
Stay with me for a moment...
Imagine a large, dark room with thousands of multicolored shapes and patterns, grids and molds, swirling in the background. Then imagine an invisible stream of air that rapidly sucks up the nearby objects. Brought into the foreground, the individual objects are flipped through rapidly, side by side, to check for a "match". If such a match occurs, the objects are linked together and rotated again through the cycle. And this goes on and on and on.
This is my mind. And in many ways, this process exhausts me. Sometimes I would like to just shut down the factory for awhile.
So my question to you is which process is responsible for "does it fit"?
