    i am just not working with definitions (like memorized formulars that i can recall), so i cant deal with such questions. i am writing from a flow of inspirations. i can not think of anything to add for further clarification. i will certainly come up with further examples, that portray the patterns (i mean, later in my life....). i believe, inspiration is mostly the other way round for me: examples make patterns emerge. i dont create examples from forumlas/deffinitions. but patterns purify given examples. patterns are like significants to exemplary memories, but this is a weak connection. patterns are significants to creativity (like inventing memories). but i cant force it.

    I see. Well, then continue on, good sir. I'll respond later (or not, if I forget) when one, I'm less tired, and two, I understand your position more.

    I wish I could write with more Te. I'm a slave to Ti. I love reading the writing of ENTJ's in particular.

    The most common reaction I get to my writing is, gee whiz, each paragraph could be an article in itself -- and then it just... ends?

    Oh yeah, I say. I hit my word limit.

    Yep, my lack of Te is probably the reason why I'm so reserved; why bother saying something if it won't be understood? If I feel it's worth the time/effort, I can spend up to 30 minutes writing a few paragraphs, which is absolutely necessary to make it cohesive and understandable.

    Yes, they're excellent communicators, which is their most intimidating aspect, imo; Their exceptional Te shames me - makes me even more self conscious of my wacky Ti.

    Is it possible to have both, then? Everything I write, just about, is technical, precise, and to the point. Very list-like. However, some of the things I write can only be understood by either myself, or someone who uses (or understands) my terminology.

    Sounds like both, to me.

    I know it was clear to me when I was studying religious apologetics.

    • Te, yes -- very much a tight little package, with focus on details.
    • Ti -- a more conceptual argument, with less emphasis on specific details, it works in mental algebra rather than hard math. The logic connections/arguments occur between the conceptual points, not the hard detail.

    No wonder why I have an extremely difficult time writing papers. My NiTi go overboard.

    You're saying you get lost in the NiTi gritty?

    Yes I am. It's like an epic battle.
