Heck, I've driven to the library in a pinch, or even bought a new computer rather than wait for the old one to get fixed LOL
PB-Is the stuff in red Si-ish in nature? Previously established generalized Si solutions which Ne connects together as needed?
I don't think he was necessarily trying to propose concrete examples here, only create analogies for how Ni and Si initially approach information and problem-solving and therefore being able to differentiate between the two. Naturally, using more than one function in concert with each other (aux et. al.) will allow for you to open up more options or overcome more obstacles once you've reached the limitations of your dominant function. I definitely agree with you that you can't rely on a singular function alone.
AE, Is the word in blue the Se component which PB asked about her her post?
( i really have no idea, just blatantly speculating...)
