    Te is a tank while Ti is a dentist's drill.

    I wouldn't want somebody pointing a tank's gun at my mouth, but then again, I wouldn't want a to be a soldier sent to the front lines with just a dentist's drill, either.

    Convoluted perhaps, but sadly for Te-s, life is full of convoluted systems. Te refuses to pick apart the situation as it's actually happening to identify axioms and plan around them. Instead it uses whatever vague surface terms are available and forces things or people to accommodate its strict, often unwieldy, and even false formulations.

    i think it is. Ti people spend a bunch of time thinking things through and trying to be exact and precise, while Te people weigh the current options and pick the best one.

    Ti people do have an advantage when the same system fails twice, because they've figured it out before, but that's less efficient than just solving problems as they come up.

    i know i have a bunch of "how stuff works in depth" entries in my memory that i will never use again.

    Heh, actually in military terms I'd say Te is a tank and Ti is a sniper rifle. In most military situations a tank is going to be more useful than a sniper rifle, but there are going to be times when it's better to trade off raw power for precision.

    Didn't we already decide a while ago that Ne was a grenade and Ni was a sniper rifle?

    Exactly, and relevance is in the eye of the beholder anyway. Since extroverts and introverts are oriented differently, it follows that they would find different things relevant.

    Dude you have it exactly backwards.

    Te has no concept of "current situational options" 'cause those current situational options are ALL provided by extraverted perception.

    Te uses conventional metrics to objectify their introverted (non situational 'cause non-objective) perceptions. Te makes a rule like "the LCD has to be 2.1 inches" where Ti says "let's use the smallest LCD we have"
