    YES OMGZ MY Ti IS SO WEAK!!!

    Sometimes when confronted with particularly long-winded INTPs (and the occasional long-winded, Ti-heavy INFJ) ...I am like, please get to the point, thank you? Do I really have to read the 86 paragraphs of precise language you just typed? Why do your emails sound like somone's philosophy dissertation?

    For example, as an INTJ, note my lack of Fe... my view of it goes from disdain at the least favourable to simply ignored at best.
    Erm... but let's say someone has no clue what their type is... how would you go about typing them in this fashion? And wouldn't it be the opposite of the fourth function that would be weakest, not the opposite of the third?

    One of the things I've noticed though recently is that I have the power to take INTP convuluted academic speech and turn it into things which will be readable to the general populace. It's not that I don't understand it, it's just that I find it tiring and unnecessary. I swear I've gotten emails from INTPs where I really don't want to even try to read it, though I technically *could*. Same thing on the forum...I've noticed that Ti heavy posts meander around and fail to get to the point.

    I guess Ne/Fi meanders around too but in a more feeling way. When it comes to thinking I adore Te. Te is direct, it is concise, it is powerful. I know it can't reach the depths of Ti, but I'd love to tell you again just how much Ti is not my strength. I remember reading this article on functions, asking which thing would you rather do....do external measurements of water, et al or do things like logic puzzles. That's when I very first realized what a problem with Ti I had...and it also helped me to be able to spot INTP writing, specifically, just like that. I'm not saying they're the only ones who do it, obviously other people have Ti, but it manifests in the most academic way there with them and sometimes INFJs.

    dunno how strong your Si is, but at least for me(i got pretty strong Si), Si is not just about things that require some sense of familiarity. i get really strong Si perceptions in new situations also at times, its kinda hard to explain, but its very similar when im remembering something and feel this sort of Si rush. dunno if you can relate but if im using Si as perceiving from the past, and something pops form it to my mind that that causes strong Si perception, its feels as strong as if that thing(thats being remembered) would happen in that moment. it takes over perception like getting some mind goose bumps(sometimes even get physical goose bumps). when i get this sort of Si perception in new situation, it feels almost like double perception, the impression of the situation comes so strong that it creates same sort of mental goose bumps and in a way that almost takes over my physical body. its almost as if my soul would come from unconscious and i see the current situation with external perception and this soul like internal perception at the same time and its like time almost slows down or stops. and this lasts under a second, about the time i breath inside, its so strong that its even hard to say if i take slow deep breathing in or just breath normally and it time just seems to slow down for a moment. its stopping and takes over the mind in similar fashion than deja vu, and actually feels quite much the same. i also get this sort of things when im using my Si when i do photography(or look at some of my old photos), but its not as strong, unless it comes from looking at photos and the situation includes something that can be reviewed in more depth than just the picture taking situation.

    It's too subconscious for the individual to see (as is the anima/animus to begin with). Now the tertiary opposite is a more obvious gap.

    LOL, this sounds familiar. If I have to go somewhere new for an appointment I arrive under the assumption that: a) I have come at entirely the wrong time/day, b) I've parked in the wrong place, c) I'm in the wrong building, d) I will inevitably go to the wrong queue/room/reception/office and will generally look like an idiot. Its not that these things actually happen to me all that often, I'm just so baffled and bewildered, trying to work out what the hell I'm supposed to do, I get over-anxious and paranoid. I always end up feeling like a complete moron.

    I never thought of this as a lack of Se and Ti but that makes a lot of sense

    The octal Daemon embodies our greatest fears. In my own case, I have started developing phobic response that seems to be related to Fi. This means that (in a strange way) I am becoming more aware of my "opposite inferior".

    OTOH, my Se deficiency (trickster 7) is easy to recognize AND a source of endless amusement for my children.

    Is this a problem? I only want to make sure that you understand my explanation. NOTE: it will take a little while to verify reference material on the remaining 85 paragraphs - will send as email attachment for further clarification.

    Marm, I loved what you posted here and identify with it 150%.

    And, my Ti totally sucks.... which I'm reminded of on a regular basis by watching my ISTP significant other. Man, does he have some Ti going on.

    i do this too, and it seems that some people get annoyed from too much info because its hard for them to handle. also what marm said with "get to the point" thing, from INTP(or at least mine), that rambling is getting to the point, its not the point, but its essential if you want the other person wants to fully understand the point when you get there. also if the other person just vaguely understands what im trying to say, he/she might not be able to respond to what i actually say, but just answering to his/hers assumption of what im saying, and that assumption might not be correct, also whether the other person understands my point or not, might not even show, because his/hers assumption is so close to what i say that it will seem like a legit response to what i actually mean, but the respond might be different from if he/she actually understood me. and if it happens that the other person just gets annoyed while listening me getting to the point, he/she will not understand the point im getting to, since annoyed people stop rational judging and thus preventing them to understand anything after they are annoyed.

    i guess this thing comes from Si-Ti, because its all so detailed and logical inside and we are trying to express the big picture(Ne), but to us, its the internal details that make the external big picture.
