    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?

    In that case, I'll see you in court for copyright infringement.

    I guess that settles it, then.

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    That's more Ti, I'd say. I get tired of people who don't bother to read my posts before trying (usually unsuccessfully) to tear them apart.

    Well, since that's not the case 100% of the time in 100% of possible situations, it's clearly a worthless observation anyway, right?

    That's what this whole forum is for--discussing and refining the categories as we continue to study their relationship to reality.
    I will note that Ti users are more likely to "re-classify" and "re-define" as they gain more understanding, whereas Te users often want to just toss out the baby with the bath water, or completely start over.

    Extraverted Thinking makes sense of the world by viewing things "objectively": in terms of categories and measurements that can be defined in advance of observation. For example, defining the specifications of a wheel that make it acceptable for use on the road. Stable categories and measurements enable people to define shared goals and enforce agreements fairly. You can tell whether the wheel met the specifications or not; anyone can tell, because the specifications are defined independently of both the wheel and the person doing the measuring. As an epistemological perspective, Te leads you to be concerned with logical and empirical justification. No conclusion may be accepted until it has been grounded on a firm foundation of other facts that have themselves been firmly established. What has not been tested is unknown; what cannot be tested is meaningless.
    Introverted Thinking (Ti) As an epistemological perspective, Ti leads one to trust only things that you understand first-hand for yourself, preferably through direct, hands-on interaction. You must see for yourself how a given thing or subject makes sense. Knowledge must emerge from the concrete reality itself, not from preconceived categories or criteria, and the search for knowledge must follow wherever logic and the subject matter lead, regardless of how people feel about it.
