    You know what I have to say here: math (as in 'counting' or 'measuring') is usually an extraverted thinking activity

    As for philosophy, yes! Read some Kant for Ti.

    Well then, in terms of the dominant and auxiliary, the LESS differentiated process is more apparent to the self. Basically, I don't see these two ideas (Lenore+Beebe "vs." Jung) as contradictory. The auxiliary function is probably acually the easiest one to control because it can be used but also ignored. (it's almost impossible to shut off the dominant function).

    Ne

    I enjoy being overwhelmed by grocery stores - so many choices/combinations, so little time. Everything looks good.
    I may be bested in battle, but I shall never be defeated.

    Cute! Good illustration.

    Fi (my Dominant) is like a slow grind. I test and ruminate carefully before coming to judgment.

    Ne (my Auxiliary), on the other hand, is like a fast tennis game played close up on the net, or a fast run down a ski slope with lots of obstacles. It's like relying on my wits and instinct, throwing caution to the wind.

    IRL, I enjoy a fast, wide-ranging debate with Ne-dominant ENFPs or ENTPs. But if it goes on too long, I get feeling a little wrung out and irritable. They can keep Ne-ing forever; whereas I start burning out and begin delving into my Fi to get on surer ground (which confuses them--they want to know why I'm suddenly getting hung up on some small point).

    Both of those Ne descriptions sound more like Se

    Those were Se-based similes to help describe the exhilaration that Ne can occasion: It's like a fast tennis game or a downhill ski run.

    OTOH, I described the actual experience of using Ne in the passage about debating with ENFPs and ENTPs.

    Counting and measuring really are more related to science than math. You will perform activities like that much more often in a laboratory, than solving problems with a pencil and paper. When it comes to purely solving problems or performing logical proofs, Ti is what gets used. So I would say study science to develop Te and math to develop Ti.

    ^ agreed more or less

    The scientific method used to conduct experiments is Te in its most rigid form. Drawing conclusions and understanding theories behind science, however, is Ti.
