    Default Pretentious [add in any other negative adjective] Ti

    We have a thread about how Fi can be perceived as pretentious. How about Ti?

    How does it manifest itself as pretentious? Or any other negatives observed by the receipients of Ti?

    Argh, I wanted to start this thread. It was supposed to serve as the tongue that licks the wounds on my relations with the forum's NFPs. Curse you for stealing my chance at NFP harmony!

    I don't think this is really necessary. You can see 'pretentious T' in many of the threads here already.

    ^Why don't you actually offer some constructive input and tell us why you personally perceive it as pretentious? Otherwise your post just serves to pretentiously imply that since you find Ti so obviously pretentious, everyone else does/should too.

    ooh! I'll try!

    Ti people can be so pretentious sometimes by acting like they totally have the monopoly on thought and that everyone else probably isn't that bright and probably sits in the forest singing to the woodland creatures or something!

    Ti-ers are pretentious because they think that logic should govern the world simply because it governs their own personal cognitive processes and beliefs.

    lol

    and here, we...go!

    My analysis ( ):

    Ti is only seen as pretentious from an Fe or Te standpoint. If you're looking at the world in term of Extraverted-Judgement, every behaviour someone makes is determining a social role. So if someone is acting as if he isn't subject to the same social rules as everyone else, then that person is obviously an elitist, pretentious asshole who thinks he's smarter and better than everyone else! How dare he!

    I also think the same can be said of Fi. Of course, there's a flip-side to this, in that Extraverted-Judgement can seem overly-controlling and arbitrary from a Ti or Fi perspective.

    Do not judge or diss what you haven't tried as inferior!
