    Default Ability to extrapolate

    I noticed that one key feature of an introverted function is the ability to extrapolate where things will go easily and automatically.

    Ti can extrapolate logically
    Si can extrapolate concretely
    Ni can extrapolate patterns
    Fi can extrapolate feelings

    Basically we make internal jumps from point A to point D. The extraverted functions are used to understand and question these jumps externally that we dont understand.

    How much of conversation is misunderstood because of this internal extrapolation in different areas and how does this affect communication. Also this extrapolation in certain areas when very open can lead to a feeling of internal vulnerability. I know with people who have the same functions as me I dont feel as vulnerable as I do when I interact with those that have opposite internal functions.

    Ideas or thoughts?

    This is a nice paradigm/strategy/pattern/expression for for effective extrapolation regardless of type.

    The problem with extrapolation is that often it goes to far in one direction and it loses itself. This pattern in skilled hands would serve the purpose of general understanding without overextension.

    I tied it into introversion because this seems to be something that our introverted function would be more susceptible to. Not really tied to type, but function. Not related to dom vs aux vs tert, but general function.
