what are you guys all bickering about?
I'd guess Te comes in a multitude of flavors depending upon what it is paired with and where it falls into the natural function order.
Fi doesnt like to be boxed. It's unique and special.
My Te fucking loves boxes. I'll box anybody. Even better I will fiddle with all of the boxes when I find out the first boxes were not quite the right shape and then I rebuild the boxes. My favorite take on MBTI actually involves four boxes with each of the 16 types plus a 17th category for folks who dont fit in the first 16 groups. Box 17 is really the "yet to be fully understood" box.
It isnt about static structures-more about observable results. Did the first box work? yes or no. No? change it to make it fit external data.
Yet within each box, there is still room for infinite variety due to free will and the fact that each function is like a sliding continuum of intensity.
Once you understand what the pattern is, then you can change the pattern. Trying to change the pattern without understanding the pattern is much more difficult I'd imagine.
So first you get boxed with Te, then I use NeFi to blur all the box edges together. How could this every actually get boring?
