I still can't wrap my brain around the ways functions are introverted or extraverted. So I still have no idea what I introvert and extravert.
Anyway, one thing I do, always and without exception, is need to organize my thoughts externally. Whether I'm trying to figure out the dynamics of a conversation, develop a theory I'm working on, or put together a presentation I'm going to give I have got to either say it or write it out before I can think about it clearly.
With more relational issues, like interpersonal disagreements, I tend to process verbally, with friends (often this verbal processing is enough, but sometimes I'll write out the exact dialogue between myself and the other person to better understand our commentary). Other more intellectual issues, like my work, I've got to write out; I generally don't like to talk about them because I prefer to work independently and think on my own.
So....is this an example of Te? It seems like it would be, but I'm just not sure. And is there a reason for needing to process relationship issues verbally, but intellectual issues in writing?
