""Liquid Laser was also correct to point out that me sharing the whole thought process is indicative of lack of sound Ne functioning. ENTP philosophers like Hume and Russell were less thorough with their proofs because the extrovert in them made them in tune with the sensibilities of others. They realized that their audience is not interested in the very detailed working out of their proofs. They realized that they could make a point without making it clear that the reasoning is impeccable. However, the Ti in them still seduced them into tedious elaborations of thought. Now, on one hand we have the INTP who is all about integrity of thought and almost no consciousness of presentation and on the other the ENTP who is mostly this way, but a little less so because he is more conscious of presentation. The Te is most conscious of presentation and even if he could (which he usually cannot) present work out his thoughts in great detail, he would not because he clearly knows his audience is not interested in this.""
Actually, Te types often seem like they don't care if others are listening when they're talking, and they WILL work out thier thoughts in great detail. So for them it often has nothing to do with 'presentation'.
Now will someone actually google the smolin and Woit interviews and actually listen to a bit of them and then come back and tell me who was wordier with THINKING.
I keep mentioning this because different in the styles of these two people is almost an epitome of the Te/Ti difference.
This skill that Ti types have of describing a concept also often makes them able to teach to anyone (and not go over anyone's head), and yet also descibe the concept accurately! I remember this was the first thing I faced when I started tutoring math. I had always hated teachers who used the jargon and did stuff I didn't know how to, and yet that was one of the first mistakes I made when I started tutoring.
