    Default Real world examples of Ti

    What are some good examples of someone using Ti in the "real world"? I know what the definition is, I'm looking for applications. That or any sort of example of someone using Ti.

    Dunno if this thread's been made already, vB search isn't too hot.

    EDIT: If anyone wants, feel free to give real world examples of other functions as well.
    The probability that I was procrastinating when I was typing this post:

    P(have big assignment due) = 0.6
    P(posting on TypoC) = 0.2
    P(having big assignment due | posting on TypoC) = 0.7

    P(posting on TypoC | having big assignment due) = .......


    Eh, I'll finish it later.

    Come on now, I know someone has to understand it well enough to give an example.

    The example doesn't necessarily need to involve *doing* something, I just want any example of Ti in use. A mindset, a thought process, an activity, whatever.

    It's difficult to describe. Being an introverted function it is often difficult even for the function user to recognize its activity. I find personally that my auxiliary Ne often motivates me, and my dominant Ti acts to impose "logic checks" on the connections and concepts Ne generates.

    That's the main reason I made this thread. I identify with the Ti description a lot, and always score very high Ti on function tests, but I can't for the life of me describe what it actually is in terms of application to anything.

    Oddly enough, I can also identify with that a lot.

    For me... Ti manifests itself in semantic battles. When I'm talking and talking to try undermine the other person position in some discussion regarding ethics. Alternatively when I start talking to myself in order to figure out something by using linear reasoning...

    Guess some would call it mental masturbation. :/
    It can be quite pointless sometimes.

    Rephrasing what someone else says, just so you can clarify what they meant for yourself.

    When combined with Ne or Se, analysing a system to find a fault. Like mentally running through yes/no checks throughout a system. Typified by the stereotypical ISTP mechanic, who will mentally work his way through the vehicles systems to narrow down and find what is causing a problem.

    When I look at a car I think "engine", when they do they can see all of the individual parts and how they link together and depend on one another. Maybe?

    This makes a lot of sense. I do this myself, often without even realizing it, while debugging and designing systems for programming projects.

    I've always wondered why ISTPs are referred to as the mechanics, now I know :P

    Interesting...this definitely rings a few bells.
