    Default What use is Ti?

    Bearers of introverted thinking, state your case!
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    It's for figuring out the best and most efficient way to pretend we know what we're talking about.

    On second thought, next time I'm feeling sleepless, I'll just open up this thread and sedate myself with the Ti- meanderings!

    It's my highest score on function tests, so it's for "testing as INTP." teehee.

    What use is it?? INTP's have it, so it obviously has a borderline incredible use.

    lol I do that constantly until someone gets the nerve to say "hey, you seem like you know what you're talking about, here do this" then I get a deer in the headlights look and go hmm what the hell was it I was suppose to do?
    My cold, snide, intellectual life is just a veneer, behind which lies the plywood of loneliness.

    Actually, if a serious answer is was what was desired:

    Introverted Thinking

    Introverted Thinking often involves finding just the right word to clearly express an idea concisely, crisply, and to the point. Using introverted Thinking is like having an internal sense of the essential qualities of something, noticing the fine distinctions that make it what it is and then naming it. It also involves an internal reasoning process of deriving subcategories of classes and sub-principles of general principles. These can then be used in problem solving, analysis, and refining of a product or an idea. This process is evidenced in behaviors like taking things or ideas apart to figure out how they work. The analysis involves looking at different sides of an issue and seeing where there is inconsistency. In so doing, we search for a leverage point that will fix problems with the least amount of effort or damage to the system. We engage in this process when we notice logical inconsistencies between statements and frameworks, using a model to evaluate the likely accuracy of whats observed.

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

    So Ti-bearers are good at sitting there and coming up with the perfect word to use. That sounds wonderful, but doesn't make them particularly useful. Can you actually do anything?
