    I'm not a grammer nazi in the slightest. I am however a nazi of meanings; that isn't necessarily definitions either, which is a common attribution. Rather, I place a great amount of focus on the messages people are trying to convey.

    Language after all is all about context. Certain styles of communication that may bend some rules here and there may actually be much more effective in expressing our thoughts.

    I'm sure there's also plenty of IxTPs that police the stupid things, like being grammatically correct, but I for one certainly do not subsribe to that category.

    why would you think that?

    i do think there's a smudge of truth about Ti doms being more inclined to immerse themselves in in the internal constructs guided by specific rule-sets, and grammar can certainly count as such, but that doesn't mean that if there is a ruleset out there a Ti dom would automatically be immersed within it, or for that matter, even care....

    i suppose if we go by the currently accepted generalities, then it would be more accurate to say that Ti doms are often semantic nazi's. but i'm not even that - i have no divine dictionary in the center of the universe to worship - for me meanings are a lot more fluid then that, an ecology of concepts striving for their own niches, breeding as memes and gaining their meaning through use on one end, mutating and seeking differentiation through meaning to gain a momentum of use, and yet being filtered for extreme mutations on the other whenever they lead to communication failures or public shaming ensues. as a whole, it's quite a beautiful system. but pick any one aspect of the system on it's own and it would be utterly ridicules - in the end of the day, being a semantic nazi is the belief that there is only one appropriate neural chain reaction to an appropriate verbal trigger. how silly is that?

    anyway - @The Great One - sorry if i was harsh - my last post was about 20% point 80% sarcasm - but the point still holds: your functions don't really drive you, they are more like your information digestive track - they are the answer to why you do things the way you do, not the answer for why you want to do them in the first place. the fact your goal is to better understand yourself doesn't tell me anything about what functions you use, but the way you are trying to do so does - you keep trying to break yourself down into focused manageable pieces.

    worst ("worst" from the point of view of the FP that you aren't), you are sharing it with us. every FP i've known dislikes it when Ti is used on their own psyche. at best, some of them are intellectually appreciative of it, a friend of mine once compared it to a moral gynecologist - she understands the value of Ti and likes to check herself for any signs of malignant hypocrisy but "god damn it it's cold" and she can't wait until it's over. at worst, i've heard claims that it feels to them like open heart surgery while being awake.

    you in contrast here you are, opening your brain's car engine and asking everyone to take a look, pick the parts with you and help you figure out what makes you tick.

    you are no Fi user.

    I was probably just being shitty due to a pissy mood. Sorry about that @Mane. I obviously can't be bothered to structure my sentences correctly either.

    I know this to be true with Ti dominance, not so much Ti auxillary. I do correct other peoples' grammar but not in a "your poor grammar makes me angry and I think you're are an idiot for it" kinda way. I'm usually more casual about it.

    Otherwise I view INTJ's and ISTJ's as the syntax nazis.

    @Mane

    Well thank you for your analysis. What changed in the past month though? I thought just a month ago you were telling me that you thought that I was a mistyped ENFP?

    Then that is one more point for me when it comes to Ti aux.
    I will frequently casually say "did you mean to say this?"

    Everyone says we act just alike. We talk about similar things and have similar interests. We are generally more confident when we are together, and very unstable feeling when we are apart. We are identical in many ways, but we also seem to balance each other somehow.
