    I appreciate Te a lot, although I think it could accomplish it wanted more efficiently (with some people) if it purred instructions rather than roared them.

I can also boss people around quite a bit if necessary however I always try to consider their feelings and am in general careful not to unnecessarily offend them (since people that are pissed off are much less likely to do a good job) Is there any Te in that... or is that just Fe working as a leadership function instead?
    This sounds like Ni and Fe working together, and the other functions falling in line and supporting Ni/Fe.

    When the Dom and Aux are working together, the other functions will support their aims.

    (For more about that, consider reading Personality Type: An Owner's Manual by Lenore Thomson.)



    "I tend to see the bigger picture"
    That sounds like Ni.


    "I always try to consider their feelings and am in general careful not to unnecessarily offend them"
    That sounds like Fe.


    "(since people that are pissed off are much less likely to do a good job)"
    " I can also boss people around quite a bit if necessary"
    These do not seem to reflect Ni or Fe, but sound more like other functions (such as Te or Ti) supporting the aims of Ni/Fe.


    "I love being efficient and getting things done as quickly and in an as efficient manner as possible"
    Though there may be a more complex function-related explanation for this, I think it's reasonable to attribute this to your preference for J over P.

    I read a little bit of Te in it. See bolded text. If those are what drives your action, then yes it is Te. You also worked your dominant strengths into the equation, that's a sign of exceptional Te use. If this is what you seek, you should keep up your good work.

    How do you get along with this function in yourself and how do you handle it in other people ?
    Yes. I am weary.

    It is only envy. I think highly of Te.
    A history professor of mine solved a difficult problem with Te.
    I was impressed.

    Te is the agent of a J process. Ti is the subject of a P process.
    A problem solving mechanism adopts one or the other. There is no common ground.

    I get along if I have to. It is not essentially my thing.

    I have a question for non TJs.

    How likely is that you will consider organizing things as entertainment ?

    Actually, yeah.

    To clean house is fun but to think about cleaning house is like experiencing the fiery depths of hell.

    Mind over matter, I suppose.

    Unfortunately, yes.

    I've had some really bad experiences with it irl.

    Most TJs turn me off so much now that I have to consciously give myself a prep talk on how not be biased towards them without warrant.


    Yeah. It's pretty bad.

    I use it when I have to, but otherwise ignore it.
    & see above.

    I am curious: why most people have the tendency to freeze when they get Te answer / statement / explanation in their face ?


    By Te I mean pure and clean Te, without any neuroticism , Fe orr visible subjectivity.
    From what I have seen in real life this can really creep out people.

    I don't know if I've ever encountered pure and clean Te. Or if I have, I haven't known it so I cannot tell you how I reacted.
    Your kisses, sweeter than honey. But guess what, so is my money.

    How about "unclean" Te then ?
