^I think you're confusing STJ with NTJ, @greenfairy.
Te users are definitely more superficial than Ti users, but NTJs don't care about authority.
Well it's true I don't mean it in the sense of SJ respect for authority. I mean it in an intellectual sense. INTJ's have their own opinions, but it's more Ni modifying the Te information than the other way around; whereas in NTP's Ti modifies Ne information.
I agree with this: when comparing the Ti<Ne and Ti<Se users, I believe that this is generally correct. When Ne<Ti users want to solve a problem they generally clearly define the problem, think about the multiple ways that they could solve the problem, abstract the problem, and finally begin testing methods to solve that problem. Se<Ti users don't really think about the problem as much and intellectualize it as much. Generally they just immediately take action and just start trying things to solve the problems. Problem solving for Ne<Ti users is more head type whereas problem solving for Se<Ti users is more gut type.
This doesn't make any damn sense. However, I think I know where you were going with this: Ti users care much more about understanding the problem solving process, and Te users are much more focused on solving the problem in general. They don't really care if they understand it, as long as the problem is solved efficiently and effectively.
Yeah, I agree with this. I mean, I will often go out into the external world to get ideas for problem solving. However, I don't just believe these external resources hook line and sinker like a Te user. Generally I will seek out multiple resources, and kind of formulate my own opinion and sort of combine these resources in my head, if that makes any sense, and ultimately come up with my own solution.
Once again, not in a social context, but they rely on credible sources of information, as their N function is subjective and not their T function.
I guess. The bottom line is they aren't like having an ISTJ boss at a company who breaks out the procedural manual every time you break a rule and tells you what you did was breaking ethical code number 556 section A or whatever. lol
