What was that you were saying about describing your dislike for the way users of each function interact with you rather than the function itself?
The problems with my understanding of Ni are matched only by yours of Ti.
I find it awfully ironic that an Ni dom is preaching about "the truth", though, as if such a thing actually exists independently of human perception.
Te is really, really, really imprecise and inaccurate. NTJs constantly make sloppy errors in logic. Remember, everything you find annoying about Ne overgeneralizing and sacrificing depth for the sake of broader applicability applies equally well to the way Ti users feel about Te.
Course, you don't need to listen to me, cause Ti is inferior anyway. (But I'm sure you know that, since you rock so hard at all four NT functions.)
He's actually quite similar to functianalyst from personalitycafe, an ISTP very heavily mired in Ti+Ni.
My use of such examples is a manifestation of Ne: I sacrifice precision in order to make the ideas more easily accessible to others.
That's the crux of an extroverted perspective: Breadth over depth. Choosing a perspective with a wide range of external applications necessitates that we give up some degree of perfect accuracy. When you're stuck in an I+I loop, you can't do that because you don't understand how breadth could ever be preferable to depth.
And yet, sometimes it is. "Folk typology" as defined by SolitaryWalker is basically, "Applying typology to anything real or useful or meaningful in the real external world outside one's own head."
Because doing so requires us to sacrifice some degree of depth and precision, to an ultra-introvert with no discernible E perspective, it's the cardinal sin.
And by that definition, I am very much a folk typologist. I actually like to relate my ideas to things outside my own head.
I wish there were more extroverts interested in this stuff, cause I get kinda tired of hearing the same tired introverted criticisms again and again. "BUT ZOMG WE DON'T HAVE ABSOLUTELY PERFECT 100% IMPECCABLE COMPLETE CERTAINTY!!!!!!!!! HOW CAN THIS BE USEFUL IN ANY WAY EVER AT ALL??????????" sigh.
