As for this particular thread it's more a question of being polite and trying to make sure that I don't stick my foot in it again. You see I just don't see this whole division between Te and Ti. I speak to ENTJs and INTJs and the only thing I'm seeing is NT not T and certainly no difference in the processes which they apply to things. Both processes seem to be the same but the focus changes in reference to what information the process is applied to. If that much is true then in terms of pure cognitive functions should there be a difference between this Ti and Te or should it be used purely as a notation of where the subject prefers to apply the function?
If Ti is no different to Te except that one is focused more on internal matters and the other upon external matters then what's the difference in pure function? Sure there's no doubt there'd be accumulated differences as each subject would approach things slightly differently but that's not the process as the behaviour which is implied by MBTI but not stated specifically.
In specific, throughout all the writings I've seen here about Ti and Te there seems to be no real difference in what they describe other than the arena to which T was applied. This would seem to indicate that T is T and the reason the e or i is lower case is that it doesn't indicate a change in function at all but rather a change in the prefered environment for the use of the function.
Of course this would make a mockery of J and P just a tad. Well to some degree.
INTP = Ti Ne Si Fe = TNSF
INTJ = Te Ni Se Fi = TNSF
It would make the two very similar except you'd tend to find them in totally different environments... I think.
Anyhoo... if you think I'm building to some kind of conclusion you're wrong. If I was only here to teach then I'd have more posts and probably a better job. I'm musing... get with the beat baggy....
