Te appears in my life all day, every day. I sometimes try to imagine how I would be without it. I wouldn't be myself at all. I would be a completely different person. I feel as though I'd be insane. It scares me.
Almost every moment of every day Te is quite dominant in my thought process. It's so normal to me, it feels kinda weird even talking about it. For the longest time I thought everybody thought like I did, but I was naive. For me, it's like "this is how brains work, right? This is just what thinking is, right?" and I don't know what the fuck is up with someone when they're not making sense. Well that's because they're not really thinking about what they're saying or doing. They're just knee jerk reacting. I know this now.
Te is like... you have an objective, and you figure out the most efficient way of accomplishing that, and then execute your plan. There's always an objective to everything I do. If I don't have one, it really makes me uncomfortable. I get annoyed when people take forever to get to the point and I am somehow compelled to listen through the whole thing. On the forum it's easy, I straight up skip most posts, or skim. In real life, it's often difficult to straight up ignore someone if they're taking too long to get to the point, or straight up asking them "ok what's your point?".
At ANY given time, I have a pretty well defined idea of why I'm doing what I'm doing. It doesn't mean I make better choices, it just means I have a stated objective.
I'm much more human now, which puts an interesting twist on Te. Some people might think I'm some extraverted feeler type. When I'm being very emotionally reactive, I know I'm being very emotionally reactive, and I chose to allow that to happen. I can take on thought patterns that aren't typically INTJ (that's me), but there's always an INTJ base beneath that.
FYI, pro tip: INTJs are pretty emotionally sensitive. Most of them aren't aware of that, or don't want to acknowledge it. It's not just me, it's ALLL OF US.
