    "A vicious circle is a complex of events that reinforces itself through a feedback loop toward greater instability."

    And it (the sentence) was a groundmaker for ingenuity (given you DO understand the deeper meaning)

    "The perfect word" usually is word in the laguage of mathematics. In fact all of mathematics is the creation of such perfect words.

    Those perfect words (that created our mathematics) have been profoundly useful.

    Now are you going to tell me that mathematics is not useful?

    Besides, the idea of leverage should not be lost on you. Ti is great at doing very little work while getting a lot done.

    Accept the past. Live for the present. Look forward to the future.

    I so need Ti whenever I start new projects, like "What if each type drew medicine wheels depicting their grief process? Would there be patterns? Would anyone care?"

    I email my thoughts off to my friend in Australia (halfway around the world seems close enough for receiving critique) and he posts back, "I"ll think about it. Can I have a couple days?" And 2-3 days later, when he's had a chance to walk the beach and consider how to tighten my logic and be more objective in how I begin, he'll get back to me with ideas that make it far better than my original thoughts.

    'Course if it's a stupid idea he lets me know right away. And sometimes he even asks my opinion on things. All in all, Ti is very useful

    LOL. Te users may not understand, as their thinking is inherently about practicality.

    2-3 days? Walk the beach? What the hell kind of Ti user are we talking about?

    Ti vs. Te:

    Te will stop a thought process if it's not applicable
    Ti will stop a thought process if it isn't logically consistent with itself

    Basically Te is more useful for doing, Ti is more useful for thinking.

    Depth vs. Practicality is the tradeoff.

    One that takes 3 days to work on his phrasing so I don't burst into tears when I get his feedback...
