    Default How do you recognize Ti?

    How do you recognize that someone is dominant or auxiliary Ti? This is not always fully evident to me. I can generally recognize Te pretty easily but Ti seems more difficult. Also, in asking this question, I mean how to do you recognize this in isolation? It is easy to look at the characteristics of someone who uses Ti and Ne and blend characteristics of those two together. Whatever you do to recognize it should work equally well for an ISTP as well as for an ENTP and an INTP for example.

    Short answer: Generally, I usually register T as an absence of F.

    For example, many people mistype T women as Feelers because T women often get good at doing the “soft girly” thing through practice. But as an F myself, I can often spot the lack of true F in such women: I see that there’s still a hard edge there, I see that they don’t “dote” on people or things, I see a lack of softness in how they compete or in their humor or whatever. (I’m not saying that a T’s hard edge is a bad thing; I like it, in fact. Mainly I’m just saying that I register a difference...)

    What I said above may seem like an unfair answer to the OP, that is, defining the presence of Ti as the absence of F. But actually I went to the books, and they said pretty much the same thing. Obviously Ti is about logic and objective analysis; but Ti is an introverted function, so the “logic aspect” may not appear in a form that’s obvious to outside observers. So what’s left for the outside observer to see? Well, Ti is so self-contained that the outward features of Ti include calmness, impersonality, imperviousness to criticism or drama, obliviousness to "the human element," etc., in other words a lack of F drama and reactivity. And that gets back to what I was saying at the start of my post...

    Do they hit my ENTP built-in radar? No/yes

    If yes, verify for trolling INFP male potential (false positive protocol).

    If no, verify for detached mental masturbation.

    If yes = Ti-user, proceed with caution.

    (further protocols can be run to determine exact type )

    Thanks. Your smiley made me look at what I wrote in a new light. It took me a few seconds to figure out what you were laughing at. But once I saw it, I was laughing too.

    I think IXTJs can be nitpickers too though.

    Is the context/reasoning behind it usually the same? Can you see a difference maybe in how/when/why they do it? If so, that may help.

    From what I can tell the ti users nitpick the logic involved, the ixtj's pull apart the stupidity involved.
