(I have often figured that it's all the more worse seeing my "hero" function Ti used against me; like used to support something I really disagree with).
    It's all about the ego, not the functions it happens to prefer.

    As far as sexual attraction, that could simply be the element of mystery. Anything too much like themselves they might not be interested in, while someone with a totally different function like that might seem "exotic".
    I guess that makes sense.

    I seem to sexually attract Ti users and Fi users dislike me. What ever is going on, I am on the other side.

    A strong preference for extroverted intuition, perhaps? Maybe a slight preference for extroverted thinking over introverted feeling. Do you think you might be Ne Te?

    At times, it seems that way…

    i've had the occasional INFP crush and i'm most likely a TP...

    really, i wouldn't take MBTI as a matchmaking system to heart, people are more likely to be attracted to whatever rocks their trousers and gives them a generally enjoyable time then they are to your functions.

    I'll try to frame this into something I can relate to; whenever a Lebron vs. Kobe argument comes up, I tend to argue for Lebron because he's statistically better than Kobe, and he has just as many championships as a lead man as Kobe. If someone mentions Lebron having significant help in winning his championships, I argue that almost every all time great (including Kobe) has needed an above-average supporting cast. If someone mentions Kobe having 5 championships, I argue that only 2 of them count since the other 3 pretty much belonged to Shaq.



    Is that Te or Ti? I'm guessing Ti-users would point out the inconsistencies in the stat-system.

    I'm starting to think that people are my complicated in their function development than MBTI suggests anyway. I think the functions are a valid concept, but it seems to me that knowing MBTI types does not always give a clear picture of the kinds of functions people prefer.

    NiTe: But it has been tested and it works, therefore it is true. Also einstein predicted a lot of things with it, like curvature of the space-time.

    TiNe: I just gave you many logical reasons why it only seems to be true, but in reality only looks like it because it works. You see the curvature of space-time is another example, its just a model that works, but can be explained with other factors aswell *insert reasons*.

    NiTe: But there is also the math that works, that at least makes it the absolute truth.

    TiNe: Math working doesent mean shit because its based on assumptions, which are based on assumptions, which are based on assumptions.. You know, you can build a working model in logic that is internally consistent and which gives the right answer, but which isnt the reality of things.

    NiTe: But those assumptions are things that have always worked, therefore they can be regarded as the truth.

    And this goes on for hours
    What's that INTP? NiTe blindly goes by "it's been tested and it works" theory? You miss the point of Ni in its entirety and I'm almost offended to see you make such general claims based on your interpretation of how you saw NiTes arguing in the past. Nah, I'm kidding, I'm not offended. I know you have weird thoughts and it can make you assume funny things so let me correct you there.
    Ni has no part in making a NiTe user go "it just works" in any way. In fact, Ni gathers ups, downs, lefts, rights, ins and outs of a particular subject before it goes on to Te to say "let's dance in the meadows because it works scaring the crows away." It's like you think NiTe users have this kind of manual, text book, research paper, etc. in their hands and follow it because "it works". Stop dancing around INTP, you're confusing lots of things here and there. NiTe users very much go through a lot in their heads before they come to a conclusion but it tends to work in an abstract understanding of a particular situation or thing. With the understanding, it's Te that goes "yup, that's the best way to go over there".

    Your TiNe and NiTe examples define a difference somewhere between Ti and Te but not TiNe and NiTe.
